    What do you think the site is about? Does it make sense? I think the site is about a way of marketing a product to it’s intended audience via any form of networking that works for that particular product- if music is the intended form, it will also be used as a free place for people to download the music they are looking for, but also receive information about a product, thus creating an advertising platform.    To me, it’s confusing.
    Choose to spend as much time as you want on the site, either try registering or try building your own channel (it can take time to do this) – feel free to dig as deep as desired and explain the difficulty or ease in doing this – and how the process could be better. 

    Please share any other thoughts or comments you might have. I understand the marketing side of doing what you can to get your product out there, getting it to the intended audiences, but I am not very clear on how the music comes into play.  I am assuming it is a way to get people to the website.
    I tried to register as a new user to the site, but was unable to get past the initial sign up screen.

    What do you think the site is about? Does it make sense?

    I guess the site is an online music channel kind of like a radio station. The photo in the middle – why are the people looking up? Only the girl in the middle is listening to music.  I LOVED the “What is Guvera” video!  That was an excellent explanation of what you offer.  So, after watching that, I think your site lets me download music for free – legally. :)

    Choose to spend as much time as you want on the site, either try registering or try building your own channel (it can take time to do this) – feel free to dig as deep as desired and explain the difficulty or ease in doing this – and how the process could be better.

    Okay, I clicked on “About” and my first issue is the word “profoundly.”  That word needs to go. It makes me feel like you are telling me how I should see the site’s service.  Innovative is good enough.  Profoundly = overkill. :)  Also, you could make the smaller text a little bigger.  I’m having trouble reading it.
    Actually, the more I read that opening statement, the more I would change it altogether.  I would also run whatever opening statement you have across the whole box at the top and then have the explanations in columns.  The privacy page has text that is way too small for such a huge blank space.
    I would not have the brochure open by clicking on the center photo since that is redundant to the brochure box on the right.  The news link about guvera is great.  I’m not sure why you repeat the bottons from the top on the bottom.  It’s not like the page is long and I have to scroll way down, however, I liked the bottons at the bottom better than the ones at the top.  I would recommend navigation buttons at the bottom of the terms and conditions page since that one is so long.  Finally, if you’re going to repeat your navigation bottons at the bottom on the first page, just do it on all of the pages.
    I tried to register, but left the first field blank. Now it has a *Required notice in the first field, but I have no company, so don’t know what I’m supposed to enter there. Since it won’t let me go any further, I’m now assuming I haven’t understood what the site does (if an individual can’t use it).  On the “about” page the last section says that you match individuals with companies by gathering information about individual users.  I couldn’t find any place to enter my information.

    Please share any other thoughts or comments you might have.

    I don’t normally like completely black backgrounds, but the layout of the pages and the red contrast really works.  The registration page was simple and it was easy to navigate back home.
    Overall, I really liked this site.  This is a great way to provide sponsored music.

    What do you think the site is about? Does it make sense?

    I thought the site was about music and got that I could make my own stations but with only a brief look, I did not understand how that could be done. I found the intro picture intriguing and my eyes went immediately to the flashing news reel at the bottom. As I look around more, I hope the concept becomes more clear and makes more sense.

    Choose to spend as much time as you want on the site, either try registering or try building your own channel (it can take time to do this) – feel free to dig as deep as desired and explain the difficulty or ease in doing this – and how the process could be better.

    First I went to the advertising brochure and I got an idea of how it would work for advertisers which peaked my interest as a consumer. Then I watched the video which I found very helpful and really answered all of my questions and made the concept more clear. I wanted to set up my account as an user as am not a business owner. I couldn’t find how to search for music or how to register besides as an owner.. is this on another site?

    Please share any other thoughts or comments you might have

    The only problem I had with the video and in general the content on the site is it seems geared towards one type of consumer, and one genre of music. Though I didn’t mind the music used in the video I could see how it and some of the images could limit the type of consumers who would want to use this site. If your goal is only to cater to people who like hard rock then your site does that well. If you want to cater to consumers of all ages and consumers who like all types of music you need to find ways to make them feel welcome. Such as using different music for the video, providing images of other types of music and other types of consumers. I think this would help you to gain a larger variety of businesses, brand etc. Companies that want to appeal to a broader audience. I think your concept is great and if I could figure out how to use it as a consumer, and if I could find more then one type of music on the site .. then I would definitely use it!
