Find Meaningful Relationships in Unexpected Places – Take A Sound Match To Go

I recently heard a conference panelist complain that he didn’t know half of the “friends” in his network.  He wanted the ability to discover the one or two people that would add meaning to his life.  I practically jumped out of my seat and screamed “I can help you do that!”  But I kept my mouth shut, because at that moment I didn’t know how I would make A Sound Match mobile — so the meaningful relationships that were buried inside a person’s ever-growing network could bubble up to the surface.

But now I do.  Last week, the badge program launched.  It’s also known as A Sound Match To Go.

Everyone who takes the music quiz can display a Music Personality badge to help discover meaningful relationships with people in unexpected places on the web, for friendship or dating.

This is the Music Personality badge for Diamonds in the Rough

The Diamonds in the Rough badge

Put your Music Personality badge on your email signature, blog or social network profiles, because:

1.  You could meet someone really special. Get matched one-on-one with our Lookup Engine. A 4-note match means you are most likely to get along.

2.  You have a higher likelihood of getting along with people who belong to the same Music Personality group as you.

Take the quiz. Then, get your badge here.

Two scenarios to illustrate how and why displaying a badge can change your life.

Scenario 1 (for friendship):

You buy a bike from a seller on Craigslist.  During your email exchange, you notice a Music Personality badge on the seller’s email signature.  He is a Diamond in the Rough, just like you.  Because two people who belong to the same Music Personality group have a good chance of becoming friends, you invite him along for your group ride that weekend.  Turns out, you two have a lot more in common than biking.  This guy, formerly a stranger, becomes a great friend who accompanies you on the next ten backpacking trips you take and lets you temporarily move into his apartment when your girlfriend asks you to leave yours.

Scenario 2  (for love):

You are searching for someone special to date.  You display your Music Personality badge on the sidebar of your blog, figuring the law of averages will reveal at least a few readers who are single and possibly compatible with you.

Soon thereafter, you get an email from a fan with a witty comment about your latest post.  The email also includes the revelation that she used the matching engine to check the likelihood of your compatibility and it revealed a 4-note match, which means you two have the highest likelihood of compatibility.  Alerted to the likelihood that you two could get along well, you keep the email exchange going, when otherwise this reader would have been a passing blip on your radar.  Turns out, that was a good decision because her last email revealed she is single, age-appropriate, gender-appropriate, and lives nearby.  She invites you to be her Facebook friend. She’s cute! So, you invite her out for coffee.  The rest is history.


What happens when your badge is clicked?

The person who clicks your badge is taken to the music quiz to discover Music Personality and then use the Lookup engine to see how you two Sound Match.

Expect to hear from people with your Music Personality and from people who are ranked by our matching system as having a good or high likelihood of compatibility with you (indicated by three or four green notes).

Need help breaking the ice? Send a music email “Notecard.” More info here.

How A Sound Match works

A Sound Match is a compatibility system based on the theory that two people who like music the same amount have a higher likelihood of compatibility.  A short quiz identifies your interest in music and lands you into one of the four Music Personality groups.  Members of each group are likely to get along well.

Also, the matching algorithm pits two quiz scores against each other to see how strong a match there is between a couple (based on 15 years of research).  Every match is ranked from a “high likelihood” down to “risky.”

Break the Ice with a “Notecard”

Send a music email with full-length songs or albums inside – for free – to any email address.

On your music profile inside A Sound Match, add music to the first playlist (called Get to Know Me). This playlist always travels inside your ASM messages.

Send the email from the “Messages” tab on the top navigation bar after you login. You can either type in a username or the person’s email address. Send a Notecard anytime to anyone.

    That is very interesting! A Sound Match to Go. Sounds like another way to match make people. It makes things more creative and people with the same music tastes can also hang out together!
