Metablocks develops a broad range of applications for its music and entertainment clients, these include Like-Gated and Share-Gated music download apps that leverage both Facebook and Twitter. The idea behind these application is simple – motivate fans to “Like” a Facebook page or share a message (on Facebook or Twitter) in order to download a FREE MP3 track (or album) from their favorite music artists.
Facebook Consumer Examples:
Facebook Music Label Examples:
Stand-Alone (mpCloud.com) Examples:
We have done several exclusive contents in the past including Blake Shelton’s 25 Days of Christmas as well as Scotty McCreery’s 12 Days of Christmas. We also have been running 2 seasons of the daily Hunter Hayes Road Race, so you could safely say we love unlocking exclusive content countdown!
This new project (promoting Blake Shelton’s new album: Based on a True Story..) follows in that same tradition but brings together even more mashups than countdowns we have done in the past. These include YouTube (Vevo) support (Videos), Soundcloud integration (for audio track), Facebook connect integration (for comments and sharing), Twitter API (for sharing) and back end analytics via Omniture. We also make sure to include the buy links and social links as well. Enjoy!
We have talked about our voice and text application beta program in the past, and we are finally beginning to launch some of the applications we have been working on during the last couple of weeks. Stay tuned for other new voice and text application in near future.
New telephony infrastructure platforms such as Twilio and Plivo are enabled a new generation of voice and text applications that are significantly better and less expensive than the first generation tools from companies like Mozes (now ePrize), TextMarks, and SayNow (now Google). Unfortunately many early adopters who initially flocked to these tools to manage their mobile marketing campaigns has since moved on as the cost and inflexibility of these systems far out-weighed their value.
So, what makes our new voice and text application solutions different:
Maggie Rose Song Premiere and FREE Download Voice Application
This week we launched a unique voice application for RPM Music country music artist Maggie Rose. This two-part voice application includes a phone number that fans can call (442-333-ROSE or 442-333-7673) and a Facebook page that fans use to download a FREE acoustic track. You can visit the page here: http://www.facebook.com/MaggieRoseMusic/app_476237192426082
By calling 442-333-ROSE, fans can premiere Maggie’s new single ‘Better’ and unlock exclusive content in the process. Once they call the number and preview the song, they unlock a free MP3 download from Maggie’s Facebook page by simply entering the phone number they called from. Fans can also leave Maggie a message (some of which will be featured along with the fan’s profile). Additionally, the voice app allows fans to get download/buy links immediately texted to them as well as to subscribe to updates from Maggie on their mobile phones or via email.
Some of the application’s technical highlights and features include:
Our new Flashmatic platform allows clients to drive digital signage at trade shows or POS locations and deliver real-time content and social media feeds. This new XML-drive web-saavy platform allows clients to combined both static, promotional and dynamic content to create compelling experience for show participants. We were recently asked by our client Curb Records to deploy a solution for them at CRS 2013 in Nashville and here is a clip of that application.
Features and Functionality
Stay tuned for more updates and news on the Flashmatic or give us a call if you interest in deploying applications on this platform.
