Our user acquisition strategy is primarily to reach out to fans of bands and sports teams via online message boards and forums in order to directly reach the most targeted and passionate audience we can think of. Beyond that, we will focus on social and PR. We may start doing some paid marketing where it makes sense. And SEO may be an option down the road, but honestly, we would rather flip the bird to Google on this one and build a real brand!
We have been posting in band forums about the idea and getting great a great response with over 100 people signed up already!
