goods. As stated above, the ZG Dojo Store will
sell books, CDs, videos, posters, clothing, logo merchandise.
Other possibilities include custom guitars, guitar accessories,
and items in keeping with the quality and spirit of Zen Guitar.
services. This area will grow as the bandwidth
permits. ZG will offer real-time interactive lessons, stage
live performances, and organize real-time jam sessions, with
people paying a fee to get those services.
Linking people. ZG will act as "taste arbiter," acting
as intermediary, assembling a roster of instructors, say, and
receiving a referral fee for linking them to students, or collecting
commissions on sales by other vendors recommended by ZG.
Offering unique, valuable content. Much of that content comes
from the author's writing and the "One Sound One
Song" concept. ZG will also offer music by other members
of the Dojo, perhaps through micropayment fees for downloading
certain tracks, or a subscription/membership fee whereby members
pick and choose what they want to download, or ZG sends its
weekly picks/tracks, etc.
eyeballs for advertising. Self-explanatory.
