The Future of Music Marketing: Direct-to-Device - Music Think Tank

Digital marketing has only been in its current form for the last decade. Despite the application of digital marketing within various industries, the majority of initiatives and campaigns have focused on the idea of direct-to-consumer (or within music as direct-to-fan). The focus lies solely on cutting out the middleman and reaching consumers directly.

 

The current conventions of digital marketing within the music industry focus on basic direct-to-consumer tenets but these ideas are now beginning to become obsolete. With the rise of hardware-focused technology such as the smartphone, the relationship between an artist and fan is facilitated through their devices.

 

The new way to reach fans will be direct-to-device.

A Musician's Guide To Editing MP3 Music Metadata - hypebot

A Musician's Guide To Editing MP3 Music Metadata - hypebot | Digital music | Scoop.it
By Musician and Marketing Consultant Solveig Whittle (@shadesofsolveig). You’ve probably heard a lot about metadata. Metadata is “hidden” data in computer files that “tags” a file with certain identifying information. For example, you may have heard the word used in discussions in the media about metadata associated with digital recordings of phone conversations. Metadata formats are different for different types of files. This article is about music file metadata. As I have written about before, having the correct metadata associated with your music files is extremely important. Metadata, also referred to as ID3 tag for mp3 files, is the identifying...

You Can't Buy De La Soul's Music on the Web. So How Did the Band Give It Away?

You Can't Buy De La Soul's Music on the Web. So How Did the Band Give It Away? | Digital music | Scoop.it

De La Soul gave its fans a pretty great Valentine’s Day present on Friday. Via a website, the pioneering hip-hop group gave away its entire six-album catalog, asking only for downloaders’ email addresses in return.

Free download promotions aren’t groundbreaking these days, but they’re still pretty cool. And De La Soul’s move was extra cool, because they were giving away something you couldn’t get — legally, at least — any other way: Almost all of the band’s music has been AWOL from download stores like iTunes and subscription services like Spotify, due to an odd licensing tangle involving Warner Music Group, the band’s old label.*

So how did De La Soul get the rights to give away music you can’t buy anywhere on the Web?

UK 2013 sales figures: LP at its highest since 1997, and even digital album sales went up.

Trevor Parks's curator insight, November 6, 2014 12:33 PM

Unlike the Music Tank article, this one only has one infographic (the one you see here), as well as a picture of John Cusack in High Fidelity being surrounded by vinyl LPs. As for the article itself, it seems very well informed despite the fact that there is not much information about the author who wrote is besides being the In Focus features editor for the website Metro.co.uk.

Clae Wilson's curator insight, November 9, 2014 6:06 PM

This article was written by Ross McGuinness for Metro.co.uk. It links not only to what he has written for Metro, but also to his personal website, his Google+ account and his Twitter. It's a great example of authenticity because you can find other work that the author has been a part of and see that he knows what he's talking about, as well as communicate with him one-on-one over Twitter and speak to him directly regarding his thoughts on the matter.
