Hey what’s up? My name is Meytal Cohen and I’m one of the 4 Co-Founders of Erlybird, together with Lior Ron, Tomer Ron and Doron Ben-Moshe.
In 2013 I funded my first original album ‘Alchemy’ on Kickstarter. It was a long process, and when the album was finally ready I wanted to celebrate the completion in a big way. As an independent musician I didn’t have the marketing tools that a major label would have, and so I turned to my partner Lior and together we developed a makeshift webpage to launch the album. The success of the launch webpage was mind-blowing - we received orders for twice as many albums than we did on Kickstarter, in fact it did so well that the album ended up charting on multiple Billboard charts, including #1 on the Heatseekers Billboard Chart. That’s when we decided to build this platform.
The Erlybird format blends the excitement of a 30-day crowdfunding campaign with a risk-free shopping experience. All the extra value of being first, without the long wait and risk of funding an idea that might not ever get made. We feel strongly about crowdfunding and the avid community it helped build. By becoming an Erlybird you support a vision for independent creation, a place where new cutting edge visions come into the world, for the very first time, by the people who created them.
Erlybird is just getting started. If you’d like to get more info about our tiny company, or become involved with us as we continue developing our business, we’d be happy to hear from you. You can contact Lior directly here: firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy shopping and have a great day!
