Target Refuses to Sell Beyonce's New Album, Company Says It's Focused on Offering CDs in Physical Format

Target Refuses to Sell Beyonce's New Album, Company Says It's Focused on Offering CDs in Physical Format | Hot Trends in Social Media | Scoop.it
Though it's shattering iTunes records, Beyonce's fifth self-titled album will not be sold at Target, a spokeswoman says
Grace Lowe's insight:

My amazing friend Laquia summarized if perfectly! "From a business perspective, if artists cut out retailers when debuting their album they miss out on the initial album sales which is when most people purchase the album. If not, the retailers will typically sit on them for a while."  Beyonce cut out the middleman COMPLETELY and the retailers lost out on first week album sales! What would happen if every pop astist followed suit? How would this effect retailers like Target and Walmart? We have already witnessed what itunes did to companies like F.Y.E., Sam Goody, The Tower! Record shops are non-existence and they use to be apart of youth culture. I agree with Laquia, Target is sending a messgae: They do not approve of this marketing tactic and will not support it, or any artist that execute its.

By Eva Cohen All over the news: Twitter’s IPO, Snapchat turns down Facebook. Does it leave anyone feeling as though the technology sector could focus on something more important?
Grace Lowe's insight:

“There will be another two or three Snapchats in the next year which will make this one obsolete,” Wadhwa says. “The current crop of social mediacompanies with ridiculous evaluations—many will be toast.

 

What is important here is that mobile apps and social media platforms are all moving toward photos. Text is out! As soon as Google creates an algorithm to search the audio of videos, Web 3.0 (Photos & Video) will be in.

Social Media - In social advertising, where is your money better spent—on Twitter, or on Facebook? Here are the key findings of a study across four measurement categories.

How Yelp Can Help... Small Businesses Take Advantage of Reviews [Infographic] | Hot Trends in Social Media | Scoop.it
Social Media - If you work at a small business, you might consider establishing a presence on the popular Yelp review site. Here's a look at the benefits of doing so.
Grace Lowe's insight:

The average increase in annual revenue for small businesses with Yelp accounts was $8,000, and $23,000 was the average increase in annual revenue for small businesses that paid to advertise on Yelp.


WHY? Because there is nothing like word of mouth marketing. Yelp reviews are the holy grail of reviews (when you don't have a friend or family member to ask). Those reviews turn into dollars. Small businesses are you on yelp? If no, how much money are you missing out on?
