Would you use this? (Short Poll)
« on: November 15, 2007, 07:41:57 AM »
Question 1.
As a performance poet, if there were a monster.com type website for booking features, would you use such a service?

Question 2.
As a person that books features for evening shows in coffee houses, clubs, bars, and/or schools, would you use a centralized database of performing poets with access to their work, touring dates, and fees?

Question 3.
As a PSI Slammaster, would you appreciate it if you were immediately given a website when you certified? (Including a newsletter tool, Blog, etc.) Would you use this service?

1. I think it depends. Would this monster-poet.com site have access to NACA and University gigs as well or just slams?

2. Yeah, sure! I'd try anything once.

3. Depends on additional fees.

3. Depends on additional fees.



It would have access to any booking agents that used the service, not restricted. There would probably be a vetting process to weed out bs.

No additional fees for #3. It would be included in the cert fees. Perhaps additional functions could be extra, but I prefer free over not-free.

Word! I wasn't expecting clarification or expansion of explanation.  But thanks anyway!

Yup, yup and yup!

1. Yes
2.Yes
3. Well I already have these things at this time so, No. If I were just starting out I think that it might be useful it would largley depend on how user friendly the web site was. I'm looking for myspace style easiness to be perfectly honest.

1. Yes

2. No - not personally - but I can see this being useful to people like librarians and other occasional bookers of poets who want to know who is available in their area.

3. No we wouldn't need this service as we have a venue website.  However, it could be a cool membership benefit at a certain level for poets who are members. However, vetting process could be difficult and a pain for PSI to manage.

Short answers:

1. Yes.
2. Yes.
3. No, but I would guess that some newer slams would find it useful.

Question 1. Yes

Question 2. Well, not sure, it would be a change in the way I book features.

Question 3. No. But that's only because I already have those things, not because I would not use them.
