Venture Capital / Angel Investors

It's that time ladies and gentlemen, Famesource has begun searching for Venture Capital/ Angel Investors/ Spare Change on the floor (just kidding). Up until this point, the entire project has been self-funded by myself and my partner. With the website doing well, we have begun to search for cash money to help take us to the next domination.

We will keep you informed on how the situation unravels, but for those of you with connections to say accredited investors, or venture capital firms, feel free to drop us a line...seriously.

Famesource Does Vegas!

Q: After Los Angeles, what city has the largest concentration of aspiring talent?


so we went. we saw. we conquered. (we also baked in the 115 degree desert heat)

Here is a pic of us advertising Famesource at The Price is Right show at Bally's. We didnt get called up or anything, but we did get plenty of people who asked about the site.

Famesource Community Toolbar

We are very proud to announce the launch of the Famesource Community Toolbar! This toolbar will make it super easy for you to stay up to date with whats going on in the Famesource world. Anthony and I will be fine-tuning it in the coming weeks, but we have added the basic features to get started.

The toolbar has
1) our logo which will link you directly to the main page
2) a search box where you can search on google, FAMESOURCE, ebay, etc.
3) an RSS feed to our blog which will let you know when we have new posts
4) an email notifier which lets you know when you have new mail (really easy to set up)
5) a top of the line pop-up blocker (from google)
and last but not least
6) local weather....yea, we know how important that can be!


Enjoy, and remember to give us any feedback you might have.

Link Exchange

We want to let the readers know that we have decided to start a link exchange on Famesource. A few friends of ours put up FS on their own websites, and we felt that it would only be fair to return the favor.

After starting we had good responses from other site owners/promoters that wanted to simply swap links. So why is this a blog entry? 1. It's been an uneventful week.(kidding) Seriously though because of how well its gone we wanted to let people know that if you want to trade links, we are more than open to it, and if you wanna go further than simply a link trade, send us an email and we will work something out.

Here is the page...

Be sure to give HollyScoop a look she helped us out on day 1!

Our Youngest User!

We always go through our database to check certain things, one of them so happens to be age, we like to know the average age of our users, what area they are from, etc..

However when we saw this we could not help but laugh. Joshua is officially the youngest Famesource-er alive...alough his parents may be to blame for that hahah. We just want to welcome him, and let our users know that we have donated a few Famebucks to help in his modeling career. Best of luck Josh...and thank you parents for sure to tell Josh's friends!

Hit the streets.

The title here is not abstract or theoretical folks. We literally hit the streets. After a long weekend of sitting in front of monitors, Allen and I decided that it was time to get out there and do some face to face promoting for Famesource. We threw on some matching Famesource "Claim Your Fame"(tm, by the way) T-shirts, grabbed a handful of fliers, filled our pockets with cards, and hopped in Allens car with nothing but hopes, dreams...ummm and a list of talent related businesses from Google...LA is a big place guys, we needed to know where we were headed.

After a few welcoming smiles, it's fair to say that we ran into a few people that were not so excited to see us. But after we explained exactly what Famesource was, their sneers turned into cheers, and they posted up our fliers in their businesses. All in all, at the end of the day we felt like we had accomplished a lot. If any of you reading this live in LA be sure to drop us a line and tell us where you saw our flier.
