Money Making Idea #8 - Send A Tune
I called my friend on Friday to wish her a happy birthday and I thought... I wish there's a way I can play the Happy Birthday song over the phone. Maybe there should be a service where people can select a song and play it over someone's voicemail. For instance, I could just call a company, select a song, and record my personal message. "Hey, I want to wish you a happy birthday. [Music beings and the song plays]." This idea can expand to beyond just a birthday song -- to any song. You can pick a song for a girlfriend, a wife, a best friend, or a niece for graduation. How does it work? You call a company that hosts the service, SEND-A-TUNE (for example). You pick a song from the selection. The selection should include a wide range of music, genre, and artists. You enter the destination voicemail number. You are allowed to record a personal message before and after the song. You make a payment. The payment can be done with a credit card or you can open a membership account that speeds up the process. The song and message gets delivered to the target. Why send a song? Sometimes a song can express your feelings and thoughts. Send a song to confess your love. Send an apology. Send a congratulation message. There are many reasons.
- Example #1: John had feelings for Rebecca but never had the courage to tell her. He sends the song, "Nobody Knows."
- Example #2: Maggie appreciates the five years she's been with her boyfriend. On her anniversary, she picks "Thank God I Found You" and sends that to him.
- Example #3: Jimmy just graduated high school. He picks "That's What Friends Are For" and sends them to two of his best friends.
Note: Don't mind my lame selection of songs above. Substitute those songs with great ones you have in mind.
