San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
30 year guitar industry veteran, Music Power, headed by owner and CEO Eric Denton, announces the grand re-opening of MusicPower.com, found on the web at http://www.musicpower.com. This newly enhanced ecommerce website features hundreds of guitars in all price ranges offered at low prices to benefit musicians worldwide. Targeting both U.S. and international customers, this feature rich website promises to be a fierce global competitor.
"We will bring the power of music and the power of the internet together with MusicPower.com. We've created a user friendly, feature rich website that offers great deals and amazing guitars at industry leading prices, "said Denton. "Having been a professional musician myself, I know how important the right instrument is to a musician. There is nothing like helping people find the right guitar and I have loved turning my passion for music into a fantastic business!"
According to Hoovers.com, "The musical instrument store industry includes about 4,500 stores (known in the industry as "dealers") with combined annual revenue of $5 billion. Major companies include Guitar Center, Sam Ash Music, and online dealers American Musical Supply and Sweetwater Sound. The industry is fragmented: the 50 largest companies hold 45 percent of the market."
In the competitive landscape, the way for smaller music instrument and guitar retailer or e-tailer to make their way into the fray is by specializing in personalized service and setting themselves apart in the marketplace. In a five billion dollar industry, served by primarily larger, big box stores, Music Power is poised to compete.
Denton, a lifelong musician and member of the eighties band, the Monroes experienced a taste of billboard success with 1982's "What Do All the People Know?" and has parlayed that passion into 30 years of guitar and musical instrument business success. MusicPower.com is owned, run and supported by musicians.
Said Denton," If you call MusicPower.com with a question, you'll get someone who understands music and cares about music, not just another faceless phone operator. To truly be successful in this industry, you need to understand the passion of musicians. In my 30 years in business and my 10 years of experience on the web, I never forget the passion for creating and sharing music and that's what sets Music Power apart."
MusicPower.com doesn't only offer the best known guitar brands like Fender and Ovation they also have a wide selection of other high quality brands and all shapes and sizes of electric and acoustic guitars. Music Power searches for rare and unique guitars to offer to their customers and they work tirelessly to keep their own overhead low so as to offer the savings to the customer. They ship most orders over $99.99 in the US free of charge and feel that this kind of service sets them apart from some of the larger competitors offering the friendlier comforts of small store service through a large company web portal.
"Making it in the music business is hard work and the last thing you need is to get a raw deal on your instrument! Young people can come to our site and find their first instrument and experienced musicians can come to Music Power and can find a guitar no one else has. No matter what, anyone can find what they need, with multi angle images of most of our guitars so you can really see what you're buying," added Denton. "We're also really excited about our customer rating system and can't wait to see the opinions and feedback of all of our loyal customers to shape the buying experience for everyone!"
Music Power is also targeting International customers, showing pricing in Euros for most instruments, and shipping worldwide at reasonable rates. No matter where a customer is in the world, the instrument can be shipped there and will arrive safely, within days. Other features the site boasts include the ability to edit and manage multiple shipping addresses, and multiple credit cards, to be able to keep multiple shopping carts saved for later use, or even create a wish list to keep track of desired guitars and the functionality to email others to order.
Customers will find the added bonus of being able to track packages from MusicPower.com and to see past purchases. Denton finished, "Our plan is to continue to add to this terrific site with new products, features and enhancements to make buying an instrument online not only painless, but fun! We look forward to feedback from old and new customers and we can't wait to help more people find the power in music!"
