Over 12 months in the making and based on feedback from thousands of its members, the new site boasts a completely new redesign.

Hello Music's new site experience is tailored to seven unique tribes of musicians including: Guitarists, Singer-Songwriter, Bass Players, Keyboardists, Drummers, Pro Audio Engineers, and DJs. Within these tribes, members will now find curated products and services hand-picked by the Hello Music team, as well as hundreds of other items determined by Hello Music's social interaction Shopping Feed.

The Tribal Experience
Hello Music is serving seven unique tribes of musicians with a revamped experience for each.  The platform will customize a member's experience based on which tribe they associate with during each visit. Whether a Hello Music member plays guitar, drums, or is a vocalist, they can now progressively scroll through the site and products. Members will also have the ability to cross-explore other musician-tribes. Each time a member visits Hello Music they will have an entirely new experience of discovery.

Vastly Expanded Assortment
Hello Music has expanded their daily opportunities to include seven additional daily offerings for the musician tribes, from gear to studio services to marketing opportunities.  After exploring the platforms' featured daily deals, members now have a chance to see other related products and services curated by the Hello Music team and community. Furthermore, members will now be able to take a deeper dive into product and services details via more photos, videos, reviews, and specs.

The Community Determines "What's Hot"
Hello Music also debuts the first-ever musician Social Shopping Feed.  What differentiates Hello Music from other musician commerce sites is a social community of musicians.

Hello Music's community is serious about the craft of making music and they often share their thoughts, feeling, and opinions with other musicians via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Through the new Social Shopping Feed, members can now have a voice in influencing "What's Hot" on the platform. Hello Music integrated social endorsement into every product and service listing. Members can now Like, Pin, Tweet and comment on any product or service on the platform. In doing so, they will contribute to the community and influence the Social Shopping Feed.

"It's our mission to be the most valuable resource on the planet for musicians.  With Hello Music 3.0, we have taken another step forward by segmenting the site experience by unique musician groups, vastly expanding our offerings in an intelligent curated manner, and introducing the first in the industry Social Shopping Feed," said Rick Camino, CEO of Hello Music. "The site is re-merchandised minute-by-minute based on member's feedback. Through social engagement, we are empowering our community with even more tools to tell us what they want and how we can better serve them. We are extremely proud of Version 3.0 and our members can expect to see even more innovative features later this year."
