Marketing Principles - Punk Lite
Transcript of Marketing Principles - Punk Lite
iPunk will be further explored once we reach the marketing mix section of the presentation in terms of the physical characteristics of our product features and strategy. Competitors - Direct Gig Ink - an app used to help quickly find live music events and their details. $1.99 Competitors - Indirect Shazam - an application available for iphones, androids, windows phone, windows 8, blackberry, and ipad which identifies titles of songs through the lyrics Marketing mix - Product Brand/slogan - iPunk "musical freeedom" (easy to remember and catchy)
Features - iPunk is an app that allows users to find local gigs. The app allows the user to search by band or location, allowing users to look for their preference of gigs. The app has a music recogniser installed to allow for users to find the name and band of the song that they are listening to. To allow for band promotion on the app, there is a merchandise store attached to all the bands that have listed gigs.
note: iPunk will be available in different platforms such as android, apple, Microsoft windows, and Nokia to ensure our target market in its entirety can use the app. Marketing Mix - Price Competition-based pricing/psychological pricing - considering the price of competitors within the market (as mentioned before in the direct competition section of this presentation), and the way an individual's mind operates, $1.49 is the set price for purchasing iPunk Facebook - Users register before using the site, allowing them to create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile Marketing Mix - Promotion Public Relations (product publicity)
- music festival which attracts a large amount of our customer base (punk lite).
- Set up a booth for the crowd to test and sample the app
- Sponsor bands (Eg. Blink 182, Linkin Park, Sum 41) who will give a shout out to the crowd about the app and direct them to the iPunk booth.
