Nashville, Tenn. (Vocus) November 2, 2010
ZIPBOX Media, a leading innovator of digital media distribution, has signed an agreement with Stetson and Sony/ATV to provide its technology services for Stetson’s fall 2010 Look Book projects.
ZIPBOX designed http://www.stetsonlooks.com, which features interviews and music videos by the artists Erin McCarley and The PawnShop kings, a free download of the artists’ featured songs, and a secure store for viewers to purchase Stetson apparel and accessories worn by the artists in their videos.
“We chose to use ZIPBOX because of their combination of music industry experience and technical know-how,” said Aaron Mercer, senior director of licensing and marketing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing. “From the original nugget of our idea, through development of the website and execution of the program, they made the process extremely easy for us and our client.”
The Look Books are available through http://www.stetsonlooks.com, http://www.stetson.com and Stetson’s Facebook page. McCarley features a rendition of Hank Williams’ “I Saw the Light,” and The PawnShop kings cover The Beatles’ “Revolution.” Using the ZIPBOX Media digital distribution platform, visitors to the Stetson Looks site are able to download both songs free, and purchase the Stetson pieces worn by the artists in the videos through a secure online store.
