We look forward to sharing these survey results with marketers and helping them leverage the benefits of using new media in more non-traditional marketing roles.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 9, 2007
Agency and marketing professionals around the world can now express their opinions about the market impact of digital music in the 2007 Digital Music Promotions Poll. Going live on August 9th, the survey is currently soliciting input from top agencies, consumer goods companies, and technology firms who manage and offer digital media as customer loyalty incentives. To participate in the survey, visit http://2007promopoll.hipdigital.com/AxisPR.
The results of this study will provide data on the degree that digital music helps brands win and retain consumers when used as part of premium, incentive and loyalty programs.
The 2007 Digital Music Promotion Poll is being fielded by Promo magazine, the authority on promotion marketing and use of incentives, and Hip Digital Media, a leading full-service digital media agency that specializes in licensing and distribution of digital media. Cooperating partners in the poll include AWE, a global entertainment marketing agency and division of Omnicom, and The Orchard, a global digital distributor and marketer of independent music.
With global sales for the digital music industry expected to reach $4 billion by the end of 2007, more companies are turning to digital media to retain and attract customers through premiums, incentive and loyalty programs. "Marketing incentive programs successfully to consumers is a challenging process, and companies are looking for alternative ways to utilize digital media to build consumer loyalty," said Larry Jaffee, editor in chief of Promo. "We look forward to sharing these survey results with marketers and helping them leverage the benefits of using new media in more non-traditional marketing roles."
The survey invites marketers and agency executives for feedback on:
- Important issues that impact loyalty & incentive programs
- Challenges to program launches and consumer interaction
- Identifying the right incentives and criteria for campaign success
- Identifying what delivery vehicles work and don't work
- Ways to deliver digital music as part of campaigns
"Hip Digital Media is proud to align itself with the industry leaders sponsoring this poll. We recognize that music is a big part of marketing and promotions these days, and is going to increase over time as companies adapt to more advanced technology by delivering new media," says Mark Holden, CEO of Hip Digital Media. "We look forward to what the results show, and how digital music is changing the premiums, incentive and loyalty business."
The 2007 Digital Music Promotion Poll will run online through September 20th and is accessible at http://2007promopoll.hipdigital.com/AxisPR. A final report and results will be announced in October and will be available by request from email@example.com.
