Giggem Adds Audition Management Feature

If you are looking for a place to solve just about any sort of problem you could ever have, a great place to look is Craigslist.  Craigslist is one of those unassuming websites that look like they haven’t spent a great deal of time developing its layout, but rest assured it is a great place to look for anything you need.  I would bet that Craigslist is primarily used for job resumes and recruiters, but there is a fair amount of stuff you can buy from the classifieds.  A smart musician will do most of his research on a device before actually buying it, so when it comes time to pay the money you can often score a better deal on Craigslist.

There is a small section on CL known as “services”.  Here you can basically buy intangibles, like someone who knows how to detail cars or piano lessons.  Underneath that category there is also a section for services offered, where musicians can post and reply to articles about each other.  One startup, known as Giggem, takes this idea to the limit.  They have basically created a matchmaking program from artists who are looking to collaborate with another artist.
