NASHVILLE-BASED IDITTY (aka MAJiiK) CONTINUES SUCCESSFULLY TO MOVE THE NEEDLE ON ALBUM SALES
Music Row Influentials Validate The Innovative Digital Platform As A Valuable Merch Item
(NASHVILLE, TN) Jan. 1, 2018 - iDitty (aka MAJiiK), the state-of-the-art tech company that anufactures digital, interactive souvenir laminates, concludes another year with marked success. The customizable, fan-oriented “All-Access” laminate (designed to make artist happenings and music accessible in real time at the swipe of a finger) continues to make impressions within the music and entertainment sector, and among performing artists and their fans. Since its formation in 2014, award-winning country music entertainers, legends and chart-toppers (Big & Rich, Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Young, Charlie Daniels and Tracy Lawrence), along with some of today’s hottest newcomers (Lee Brice, Justin Moore and Joe Denim) have aligned with iDitty to move full album sales. Collectively, iDitty can stake the claim boasting $2.5 million in music sales to date, and Music Row Influentials validate the one-of-a-kind merch item as “the CD replacement.”
Marc Oswald, Oswald Entertainment Group (Big & Rich) said: "The tech platform and fan adoption (of iDitty) is really cool to see. Our album DID IT FOR THE PARTY hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Charts; iDitty was an integral part of our strategy. In addition to the music, we loaded tour pictures, videos and all social links onto the interactive souvenir. This platform is exciting and great for artists and their fans."
Benson Curb, Curb Music said: "The fans love the physical souvenir that provides them with something memorable to take home as well as digital content; we even used some for meet and great credentials.”
Pete Hartung, L3 Entertainment (Justin Moore) and Steve Emely, Fitzgerald-Hartley (Tracy Lawrence) share mutual positive excitement surrounding the result potential from a new and recent distribution model that is anticipated to move thousands of full albums. "Fans really like the physical item that can be autographed, yet delivers the content to their mobile device, and allows the fan to keep up with the tour in real time," said Emely.
“Thanks to iDitty, one of my older projects—nearly two years old—hit the charts again landing at No. 6 on Billboard. I will be using iDitty on my new project. The fans love the speed of content delivery and the frequent updates from me,” said country music entertainer/songwriter and host Joe Denim.
iDitty also enjoyed strong movement with the legendary classic rock group Foreigner this past October. “The iDitty Interactive souvenirs were a hit and sold out fast in Alberta, Canada,” Phil Carson said. “We sold full albums and bonus music, and we’re now able to stay connected to our fan base to move merch and raise money for our charity of choice at anytime, from anywhere in the world. The iDitty platform will be part of all Foreigner sales going forward in 2018.”
"In today’s digital download environment, where album sales are next to nil, label executives, managers and artists are seeking alternative ways to move full albums again. The iDitty platform does it and does it well,” said Hugh Kirkpatrick, Senior Vice President of Business Development. “While music enthusiasts today enjoy digital content delivered to their mobile device, the ‘physical’ and ‘tangible’ laminate is as equally appealing—not just as a souvenir, but a portal to retrieve exclusive, real-time content from the artist long after a concert or event concludes. iDitty provides sound sales potential to the A-list artists, country music legends and the indie newcomers.”
More on iDitty:
Founded in 2014, iDitty offers the absolute “virtual fan experience.” Via independent QR and IC codes (located on the reverse side of the laminate), the iDitty model delivers complete albums (reporting to SoundScan), real-time photos and videos (as well as one-of-a-kind unique specialty content) to the fans, supports artist awareness and social media campaigns, is a complement to special promotions and enhances label and artist revenue streams.

iDitty’s (aka MAJiiK's) New Technology Is Stirring Up Traditional Marketing in Music, Sports,
Theme Parks, Casinos, Non-Profits and More
(Nashville, TN) August 29, 2016- iDitty, a fully customizable, high tech interactive ecosystem, is changing the way music artists, record companies, theme parks, sports franchises and more, engage with fans and customers - exponentially increasing music sales, tickets and merchandise. What starts as a simple purchase of the iDitty card at a concert, sporting event, theatrical performance or on a website leads to long-term fan experiences through the free iDitty app and platform.
Companies like Sony Music, Big Machine Label Group, Curb Records, high-profile management companies and names like Gene Simmons, Carrie Underwood, Mark Slaughter, Chris Young, Tracy Lawrence and Newsboys have already utilized iDitty with inspiring results. Album sales through iDitty automatically report to SoundScan, giving record companies a new way to market music (albums) and increase revenue in a world that has seen album sales drop year after year.
After purchasing the artist's iDitty Interactive Souvenir, fans simply install the free iDitty app, enter their email (like any other app), scan the QR code on the back of the card and the fan has the artist's music and other content. The music artist or company can stay connected and send alerts of upcoming shows, special ticket offers, meet & greets, discounts on merchandise, news, behind-the-scenes photos and more. Music downloaded from the card can be transferred to the fans iTunes folder.
The technology allows the artist's team to "push" to a smart device anytime to offer artist merchandise, selfie videos and pictures so the fan can follow the tour, backstage photos, recording session photos, etc., in order to keep the artist top of mind. This technology can even monetize any company's existing free app.
National brands are already seeing great value in sponsoring the interactive cards. Adding their logo to the back of the card and their website link in the content creates significant exposure for their product or service and a guaranteed direct shot to the consumer. Sponsorship opportunities can lower or even cancel the cost of the cards to the artist.
iDitty is also gaining attention from a variety of verticals like casinos, theme parks, festival planners, convention planners, convention and visitor bureaus, cruise lines, professional sports teams, racing organizations and alumni groups. The cards can be used as general admission tickets and/or VIP passes that can be used to inform cardholders of special offers.

Industry executives and record companies have tested the technology this year and have found that it is a win-win-win for the fan, the artist and label.

The fans loved it and lit up social media. It also provides both Kane and Sony the ability to reach back to the fan base at any time for updates and merchandise specials. We have tested it with Carrie Underwood and Chris Young at select special events as well."

Artists selling these at concerts can autograph them, and full albums uploaded to the cards are reported to Soundscan as a sale just like a CD. iDitty places everything in one location like a retail store on the fan's iPhone, Android, iPad, and/or desktop. No need to go to five different places to find everything related to the artist. The fan can have everything about their favorite artists in one place."
"Knowing that we all keep our phones with us 24/7, this is the logical place to stay engaged with the fan," added Kirkpatrick.

We can even stay connected to fans via their desktop, laptop or tablet, if they do not have a smart device."
