  • Apple Inc: iTunesTeam Global Tech Gals January 15, 2012
  • CLICK AnalysisApple Inc was originally established in April 1, 1976 by founders Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. The men met while working for the gaming brand Atari, and formed an early partnership that helped launch Apple into the leading brand we know today.
  • CLICK ContinuedOver the course of the following decades the brand evolved to become what we know as the developers of the Macintosh product line.Though the company is credited with many technological developments and applications, here we will focus on Apple’s use of their popular music application, iTunes.
  • CLICK ContinuedOver the course of the following decades the brand evolved to become what we know as the developers of the Macintosh product line.Though the company is credited with many technological developments and applications, here we will focus on Apple’s use of their popular music application, iTunes.
  • iTunes is a testament to this design principle.
  • iTunes first intended marketing efforts began at launch in 2001, when the brand targeted consumers interested in purchasing music in an online environment that supported clean and legal downloads for a price.Apple developers wished to compliment the recent release of the iPod and the iTunes platform posed a perfect pairing of technological products. Music labels were inalterably impacted by the new iTunes generation, and a whole new way of discovering and purchasing music quickly and easily was born.
  • SWOT Analysis
  • Competitor Analysis
  • Top 3 ProblemsIllegal downloading of music was causing the Music industry to loss profit and there was a real threat of the music industry becoming extinctConsumers wanted digital music for free but legally and relatively cheapConsumers wanted to be able to pick what they wanted to listen to and be able to do so in an easy to use fashion 
  • Top 3 SolutionsOffering online sales of albums and singlesStandardized pricing for singles at 99 cents – this meant that you could buy a single for 99 cents no matter who the artists wasSelling singles instead of albums - this changed the way that the average customer thought of a music unit.
  • Business Model Canvas
  • Industry ImpactThe iTunes Music store was introduced in April 2003 with 200,000 songs all for sale at 99 centsIn the first week more than 1 million songs were purchased and downloadedThis was the first time consumers could ‘cherry pick’ their songs rather than purchasing entire albums or singles the record labels selected
  • Industry ImpactiTunes along with the iPod changed the way people consume musicIt allowed people to buy experiences that now includes connecting with artists via iTunes ping, Facebook and TwitterArtists have more options on self distribution and licensing
  • Alternative Business ModelsSubscription service model would be additional revenue stream for AppleIt would allow Apple to anticipate monthly revenue from members whether they download music that month or notHaving a subscription service model would allow Apple to control a member’s music library; subscription ends and the library is no longer accessible giving incentive to continue service
