All eyes and ears were on eMusic as it recently promoted concerts of up-and-coming artists on buildings in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles. MediaPost.com reports that the subscription music service recently began a virtual road tour that projects concert footage of selected artists on the walls of buildings for passersby to enjoy. While the concerts play, brand ambassadors interact with viewers, pass out t-shirts and concert paraphenalia, and provide details on eMusic subscriptions. The virtual road tour began in December and runs through the end of March.
The virtual tour features the bands Best Coast, Sonny and the Sunsets and No Age. These three bands were selected as emerging artists and subscriber favorites through eMusic’s recommendation engine. These artists are available for download from eMusic’s database.
The campaign was a collaboration between eMusic’s digital agency, Sarkissian Mason, and its media agency, TargetCast tcm. The tour has been promoted through Facebook, Twitter, music industry bloggers and local market newspapers. The tour stays in each city for a two-week period, playing in multiple locations for maximum reach.
“The primary goal of this campaign was to drive brand awareness,” said Pamela Griffin, VP, Account Director, at TargetCast tcm. “In Miami, they gave out about 500 lighters, 200 iron-ons, 3,000 bumper stickers and 2,500 gift cards.”
The virtual road tour is literally opening people’s eyes to eMusic’s subscription service and making these new bands a sight to see.
