On July 16 starting at 6pm in Flint, Michigan,the Buckham Alley Fest will be rocking downtown. As part of the festivities, Flint Handmade is taking over the sidewalk next to the Rutherford Parking Structure for the First Annual Flint Handmade Craft City and we get to be part of the goodie bag!
Since the products we make at On-Disk.com are handmade, we’re putting together 25 CDs loaded with Creative Commons licensed music so Flint Handmade can give them to it’s first 25 visitors to craft city.
I don’t expect that the 25 lucky recipients of our discs will turn right around and buy loads and loads of things from our little online shop. Instead I’m using the discs as a gesture of goodwill and the first step in gaining some brand recognition in the area as being a local company. After all, word of mouth has to start someplace, and this is our little way of starting that process in Michigan.
What ways have you, or could your business get involved within the community? I’d love to hear about the things you’ve done to get your name out, so please leave a comment below.
P.S. In case you’re wondering, you will be able to get this disc from On-Disk.com, next week, after BAF. Remember, it’s Creative Commons content from start to finish. Click on either image or on the song titles below to learn more about the artists.
