    DBSTalk is happy to announce that it is working with Prelaunch and getting it kicked off with member invites!

    [​IMG]

    Prelaunch.com is debuting during the 2014 International CES and is a website that will connect early adopters with brands at the earliest stages of product availability – something its developers say will benefit the vendor, the early-adopting consumer and eventually, the performance of the product when it reaches the retail point of sale.

    Consumer participation is FREE, and starts with a signup process. Once on the site, consumers browse product offerings, but besides early buying access to products, perks could also include things like availability of engineering samples, contest opportunities, and even “crowd discounting” – that is, getting the benefit of a price-drop for a product the consumer has already agreed to purchase, if enough other consumers sign on to buy it. This is because you DON'T pay upfront when you pre-order as you are only charged when the product ships.

    For Example...Prelaunch has already engaged with printer and projector company Epson, the headphone brand AfterShokz, and wireless speaker brand Libratone, and relationships with more companies will soon be announced.

    DBSTalk is the first community offering this to it's members so they can sign up to receive an invite to the site when it goes live. So getting in first for a "pre-launch of Prelaunch" is a hot, as you will be able to be one of the first in line to register for the site as some items may be limited at first.

    CLICK HERE to SIGN UP FOR AN INVITE NOW and be sure to mention DBSTalk for your early invite!

    (Please feel free to also refer this to your friends so they can also receive an invite.)

    Disclosure....I am on the Board of Advisors for Prelauch as well as a founding partner.

    Needless to say, I am so very excited about this as it is a dream I have had for a very long time when I did the first "Powerbuy" on AVSForum back in 2002. Prelaunch has been able to take that idea full circle now to not only benefit the consumer, but also help the manufacturers.

    We look forward to being able to work not only with DBSTalk, but all communities. However, I am just so happy to have been able to bring the news here first to help kick if off so our members can be some of the first to be invited!

    Thank you all.

    Post to any social network. :) The more the better. The idea is to help drive a price of an item down if people pre-order the item with you. (When that time comes and if the manufacturer allows for it as not all items may fir that need.) But for sure, the more the better at this point. They not need be DBSTalk members, but have them use us as a reference to be able to get the early invite. (And if they want to register here, they can feel free. :))

    I like knowing new tech, but seldom will I buy new tech. There are just too many Edsel in the tech equipment world.

    Just a note...Prelaunch is not just tech. It will also be doing fashion like watches and collectables for example.
