Expanding upon our sensory branding capabilities, we are now providing our clients with a full-service suite of brand enhancing solutions that go well beyond music
Fort Mill, SC (Vocus) July 8, 2009
Muzak, the world's leading provider of in-store media and branding, has announced a new partnership with The Picture People, a national family portrait studio. The firm, known as MuzakID, was recently retained to create a signature sound through a custom designed in-studio music and messaging program, and an exclusive live concert series in conjunction with the well-known children's group The Sugar Beats, who appeared at flagship The Picture People locations across the United States.
Concert event dates required additional staff from The Picture People to handle the increased volume of new customers booking portrait sessions. Over the duration of the promotion, 20,000 free songs were downloaded from a custom-branded music site and 10,000 branded CDs were given away as part of a portrait package.
"We want our studios to be engaging environments that provide our customers with a unique and quality experience. We are extremely enthusiastic about our decision to partner with Muzak in this capacity. Muzak understands our brand aspiration, and have an extremely well-rounded creative team, backed by a solid reputation for service," stated Charles Masson, CEO of The Picture People.
The Picture People are a "picture perfect" fit for MuzakID's interactive new media offerings. Muzak brings the emotional power of music directly to customers, making their experience more distinct and memorable.
"Expanding upon our sensory branding capabilities, we are now providing our clients with a full-service suite of brand enhancing solutions that go well beyond music," said Steve Villa, CEO of Muzak. "The Picture People have been an ideal client for Muzak. Strategy consulting, interactive media, online music extensions, events and promotions really excite retailers looking for innovative and fresh ideas to create value and connect with their customers in new ways."
