Frequently Answered Questions
It’s true. Nobody has actually asked these questions yet. We made them up and then answered them with our best interest in mind… as well as yours. Naturally, you may have some real questions of your own which are completely legitimate. Ask those here. We might add some of them to this page.
Great question. It died. But we quickly froze the idea with the thinking that we could possibly transplant the core onto another body of thought. With the miracle of modern thought medicine, we were indeed able to achieve this lofty goal. We’re hoping to prevent any organic rejection by infusing equal doses of innovation and sensibility into the mix. So far, it’s working… we think.
Well, actually, it IS live… you just can’t see it yet. If you fill out the Add a Wall Space form as a previous wall spaceholder, GuitarPR client or for the Interest List, we’ll let you see how the new wall works. We won’t actually be opening the wall fully to the public until we have a predetermined number wall spaces built and ready to go. We wouldn’t want to jump the gun. It won’t be long.
Right now, just fill out the form at Add a Wall Space. That’s how we’re handling it at the moment while we’re adding wall spaces back in. We’re big on personal service, that’s why we have a toll-free phone number where you can actually talk to someone. A novel concept these days. After we receive your form, we’ll quickly evaluate it and get back to you with next steps. A bit later, we’ll be changing the process slightly, but the high-quality service will remain as it has always been.
If you were a wall spaceholder on The Guitar Wall from 2007 through 2016, you qualify for a new Standard wall space at no cost if you fall into at least one of these six categories: Acoustic, Electric, Bass, Accessories, Effects and Amps. There is really no comparison between the old wall spaces and the new, larger and more powerful spaces on The Guitar Wall Twenty Seventeen. We’re keeping it simple and allocating one free space regardless of the size of any previous wall space. It doesn’t matter.
If, on the other hand, you were not a prior spaceholder, we charge a small, one-time setup fee to cover costs. That’s it. No banks will be broken as a result.
Absolutely. It’s a little extra perk added on to the value they already get from GuitarPR. All current or past clients within the last two years, who fit in the categories featured (Acoustic, Electric, Bass, Effects, Accessories, Amps) are eligible for an Expanded Wall Space at no additional cost.
They are all the same size and it depends on what device you are using to view the wall. But the image we start with is 1280 x 720 pixels (16:9 aspect ratio). The wall space image you see is smaller but if you click through to an Expanded Wall Space (signified by a red GW circle), you will see the larger image (and other images as well along with additional content and outbound links). Standard Wall Spaces click directly through to their respective websites.
Quite a bit actually. Our Standard Wall Space is similar to the original wall spaces in that mousing over or touching the space (depending on device) identifies it. Clicking or touching again sends you to the designated web location for that space.
Our Expanded Wall Space is something new and entirely different – but still simple and effective. Instead of clicking out to a website, the space leads to a landing page that displays the full-size wall image as well as up to 4 additional gallery images that display as a slideshow. The page also includes textual information, outbound links and social media sharing – all in a hyper-clean layout designed to close the deal.
Very simple like everything else. When you click the Featured menu link at the top of the Wall, only wall spaces that are Featured will show up. Sorry, that’s it. But very powerful.
The short answer is yes. There is no long answer. Sorry.
Yes. Maybe. Or no. Actually, it depends. If we approve it, then yes. If we don’t approve your image for any reason, we’ll create one for you (and to your liking) at no additional charge. That’s always been the deal and it still is. We’re not trying to be funny here, but the whole point of The Guitar Wall is to create a visual discovery experience. You may already know how to do that, but if you don’t, that’s OK! We’ll help out! Simple as that.
Since we’ve been in the market for 10 years, we have a lot of established channels already set up to reach out and promote The Guitar Wall Twenty Seventeen. And with the marketing and PR power of GuitarPR, we have the means to get the word out around the world. That’s what we do.
Again, we’d like to emphasize that this is not complicated. It never was. It’s a very simple value proposition that requires little or no capital outlay. So ROI is pretty easy to achieve.
Actually, it’s not too far away. Just advance to the top right corner of the site on either large or small screens and look for the hamburger. It’s plain. Nothing on it. But click it anyway to see the menu magically appear. State-of-the-moment stuff for sure.
We pulled a few testimonials from over the years to provide a taste of the interest displayed by many wall spaceholders. They rotate every 8 seconds.
