As advertisers seek new wow factors to attract their target audiences, one idea that has emerged and seems to be gaining momentum is free music downloads. Given that 50% of us now pay for our music downloads the timing may be right.
On Friday, Toblerone announced the offer of a free exclusive track from Alesha Dixon with purchase. The UK promotion, which is sponsored by Kraft, also features a contest to win VIP tickets to a concert and meeting with Alesha, signed merchandise and free candy bars. (Paine, 2009)
Would this motivate you? Does the exclusivity matter when anybody can buy a candy bar?
Do you know who she is? Given the ever increasing fragmentation of the music industry is it possible to find an artist who would have mass appeal?
