On Social Commerce and Baha'i-inspired Music: BountyUp

Real money and lots of fun. You know about social networking. Have you heard about social commerce? Bounty Up is working with some of the best loved Baha'i musicians currently on an interesting project. -gw

Social commerce is a subset of e-commerce in which the active participation of customers and their personal relationships are at the forefront. The main element is the involvement of a customer in the marketing of products being sold. e.g. recommendations and comments from customers. ... However, the term has been expanded to include a variety of collaborative commerce activities, where the social participation may extend beyond recommendation to collaborative purchasing, such as BountyUp, or fundraising (ChipIn, Crowdfunder, Causes on Facebook).

Lyrical content is from the
Bahai Writings so the video must have spiritual-related content. Though a lot of things may apply to "spiritual-related" content, there are clearly some things that do not. If you have any questions please feel free to post a comment on this Bounty site and we'll respond.You can download the song "God Sufficeth" here for free from Amity Records. Have fun everyone!
