We’ve all heard that today’s musicians are more than entertainers – they’re brands. If that’s the case then, as brands, they’re pretty damn good at generating conversation and making a gazillion dollars. So what can today’s brands learn from the music scene to better connect with their audience?

Maggie will speak to how brands can learn from musicians:
1. They create fans that want to create communities.
While brands are trying to develop communities, musicians are empowering fans who want to create communities on their behalf. How can a brand build real fans beyond the like button?

2. They diversify.
Jay-Z has diversified his roster beyond music to great success. How have brands like Nike, Apple and Hasbros diversified to introduce new revenue streams to their business?

3. Their craft is their message.
Musicians generally don’t have to wonder how they can be authentic or stand for something given that their songs, look, etc. are their message.

4. They respond to culture.
Longevity means being able to adapt and react. Hip hop mogul Diddy has been able to be a part of culture for so long by responding to change. How are brands becoming more responsive to culture?

5. They’re batsh*t crazy.
A healthy dose of insanity is a good thing – it keeps fans surprised. What happens when a brand is brave enough to follow their crazy whims, too?
