Apple are so clever at growing their brand. Music is the key to all of their products. You know it. In fact, in China, even under a heavy regime of censorship in Communist rule, the only thing the Chinese people unanimously say they’ve missed out on, about Western life and culture is, access to pop stars and music.
The future of the internet and also any software or digital media devices by any software company at growing markets (including into the 1 billion plus people in China) is music dependent.
Because Apple knows this, they’ve been working hard to grow their music related media packages with iTunes.
Here’s the latest: Apple and the four major record labels, Warner Music, EMI, Sony Music, and Universal Music Group have partnered to create virtual bundles that have online interactive features. All music related marketing to grow their brand. They’ve dubbed it Cocktail.
The gimmick offers sleeve notes, photos, lyric sheets, music videos with selected music downloads. An interactive book, allows a virtual album experience, where your favorite singers’ songs can be played directly from the book.
Nice. What next? The virtual concert experience too? You know it! Miley Cyrus needs to be offered a deal from Apple, to head that up. She’s got the jump on that.
Cocktail launches in September and if Apple are as smart as they say they, the Michael Jackson packaged bundle will be freakin amazin, if they want this concept to take flight in the world with success.
If they’re really smart… Apple iTunes will also create the WhoDunnit: What killed Michael Jackson Virtual Boardgame too… which is the favorite game the media are playing here in the US right now, to sell their advertiser’s space for bucks in a recession. MJ + Music = big money ya’ll.
