That’s because the hardest jump for people to make is not from $5.99 to $9.99 -- it’s from zero to a penny.

This is great news for listeners who want to stick with one service, but it also creates a new problem for artists -- in an age of declining album sales and advances, they need more sources of revenue. Music streaming services can no longer provide that, and brands can be the ones to step in and fill that role. If done well, branded album exclusives can provide a benefit for the artist, brand, and fans -- but done poorly, they can result in bad press and frustration.

How music streaming creates a unique digital brand experience

In today’s mobile arena, it’s crucial for customers to connect with your brand. Through business intelligence tools, brands can gather important data (such as location, gender, and music preferences) every time a user listens to their favourite music. By utilising this data, brands can create buyer personas that will enable them to reach out and figuratively grab consumers on a personal level.

As marketing becomes even more competitive and sophisticated, it’s crucial for brands to find innovative ways to connect to existing customers while engaging new ones. This entails providing a personalised experience that customers can relate to on an emotional level — and music can provide that experience. The universal language of music can be used to reach customers across the globe; when used in a mobile context, music can convert mobile experience to an effective customer engagement strategy for brands.

Fashion retailers use music and customer data to boost brand loyalty

With advancements seen in mobile technology, customers are now more powerful than ever. Mobile allows consumers to be always connected, and with that comes the ability to find information instantaneously. As a result, they want to be in control of their own experience. This power shift to consumers has disrupted traditional marketing models to find ways to connect with consumers by giving them what they want, when and where they want it.
