I hate to complain (those who know me might argue that a tad…) but I am really growing tired of the lack of ingenuity or innovative thinking in the world of Entertainment Equipment sales.
You see, we’ve got a couple of key competitors in the field who, since the beginning of time, have “borrowed” from us at every opportunity. One such competitor recently launched a new website… or so they called it a new website. In fact, it really was just their slightly changed version of GearSource. They even went so far as to copy our successful want area, the Need Zone.
When we set out to create GearSource, the decision was made that we would not use cheap off the shelf web software. If we were to do it right, we would create whatever was needed to make the sale of other people’s property safe, efficient and quick. That’s exactly what we have created and continue to improve. We are proud of what we’ve built over the past 8 years and we look forward to what’s coming.
For others, I suggest they may want to look within and find their own identity. Because we’ve found success with our model certainly doesn’t mean that others will also. We have worked very hard to establish ourselves and to develop an extremely complex back-office system that automates the process of equipment sales. To copy just the “shiny bits” will never work.
We are currently hard at work on what very well may be a revolution in not only the production equipment business, but the re-sale of pre-owned items in any industry. More to come soon!
