Band 1

  1. 1. Marketing and PR Presentation
  2. 2. Objectives What are the objectives for this project? The objectives of this project are to sell CD‟s, sell merchandise, and promote the band to gain a larger audience and make more people aware of them and their music style. We would want to double our fan base size by the time we have reached our album goal. Who do you want to target? We would like to target people in their late teens, or whom are in their early twenties. We could possibly target an audience who are in their College and University years as well. How many records do you want to sell? Giving they have already released two albums, we would be hoping to get more sales than before on this one. We would be hoping to sell about 30,000 records this time within the first year of it‟s release. What would make this a successful exercise? We could make this a successful exercise by creating posters and a Facebook fan page which will promote the band and the upcoming album release. The more publicity the album gets and the more people that know about the new release, the more people there will be likely to buy it and listen, recommending it to friends and family if they like it. 2

  4. 4. Think SMART Specific: Is there a clear aim The specific aim of our project is to make album sales and to gain a larger audience, making the band more popular. Measureable: How will you measure the effect? Our project/objective is measurable as we have stated a number of albums we could like to sell. This means we can see how close we are getting to our target and how far off we are. Achievable: Is it something that you can do? Our goal is achievable in our opinions because the band has already sold 2 albums successfully so we raised the target goal for this one slightly as we have no reason for concern and the band has already achieved a strong fan base containing a niche audience. Realistic: Is this something that would actually happen? We feel this goal is realistic as it has been a few years since the last album release. This means more people have had the chance to discover the band and get into their style of music. It also means existing fans will be anticipating the new release and will want to buy it straight away, as well as talking to friends and family about it causing word of mouth and getting more people interested. Time-related: Are there timescales for your project? We have set the timescale of wanting 30,000 album sales within the first year of it‟s release. We have also set the timescale of wanting to gain a larger audience and double our fan base by the time we have sold 30,000 albums. 4

  8. 8. Manage the message What is the message you want to communicate about this band? The message this band is giving is that they don‟t care if you are not particularly a Punk, and if you listen to their band and would consider yourself a fan they would treat you like the rest of their fans, whether they be Punk or not. Basically, you do not have to fit into the typical stereotype of a Punk, as long as you enjoy their music. What is the main selling point of the band and the album? This band creates modern punk music, with inspiration from Billy Idol and Adam and the Ants, but they have an older Punk style, with the traditional traits such as studs, leather, safety pins, ripped clothing and dark makeup. 8
  9. 9. Hyperbole “You‟ll die of regret if you don‟t buy the album.” “Class Of Nuke „Em High are out of this world.” “The songs will never get old.” “You‟ll never get better than this.” “Chaos and Whim is the best Punk album of 2013.” 9
  10. 10. Events What events would you put on as part of the promotion of this band and album? Our band would play gigs in small clubs and restricted areas, or smaller festivals. They would play somewhere that is not well known or exactly “mainstream”. They wouldn‟t appear on a TV chat show because they‟re a niche band and there is only a small group of people that would listen to their music. Plus, because they are not particularly a well-known band it would be difficult to be able to appear on a chat show. They wouldn‟t go on a huge arena tour as they would want to remain a niche band and we could put up posters in popular Punk hang-outs which would give details of where the band was doing a gig. The posters could also be placed around various areas where they would be seen by the target audience of the band, e.g. Colleges, University‟s, and alternative shops. 10
  11. 11. Internal motivation What is the motivation behind this project? One of the main motivations behind this project would be the band wanting to make music and perform it. Their passion and love for music would drive them towards wanting to perform at small gigs and have album sales. Their fan base and people buying the albums and their merchandise would be a good form of motivation as it will make them feel appreciated and they will learn that people like them and enjoy their style of music, making them want to make more and carry on in a career they love. Why is it an important project for you? This project is important to us because we are currently learning about Marketing and Public Relations, so this project is helping us to understand how this system works and also experience what such a thing like setting up and creating a band would be like. Why is it an important project for the band? This is an important project for the band because through promoting the new album, the band will be gaining more recognition and will be out in the public eye. This leaves opportunity to gain more fans and also make sales. It is also important because as the band gains more recognition and a lager fan base, they will become bigger which could result in them having more opportunities at gigs in bigger arenas and expanding tours from small ones, to world tours or year tours. 11
  12. 12. Motivation of media Why would the media be interested in this project? The media as a whole would be interested in this project because it it gives them content for their products/channels which allows them to get out in to the public eye also because Which parts of the media or media products would be interested in the project? Certain magazines such as „KERRANG!‟ may be interested in this because the bands music style and genre would fit in with the style of magazine and is a similar audience profile to who the band are trying to target and connect with. This would benefit KERRANG! as well as the band because the bands promotions and updates will give the magazine content for their pages and it could also boost the magazine sales due to fans of the band purchasing it to keep up to date with the bands whereabouts, upcoming events and music releases. KERRANG! Have feature pages in their magazines where they will place a new band every week. They use ¾ pages for this, in which they will talk about the bands profile, music style, albums etc. This benefits the magazine as they will constantly be looking for new bands so our band will be giving them a new upcoming band to talk about. Radio channels such as Maximum Rock N Roll‟ would be interested in the bands new album release because by playing songs from the album or interviewing the band, they are helping to promote the band and they are also going to be getting listeners and people tuning in to their station to hear the songs or listen to the interview from the band. 12
