a single campaign
In the current musical landscape, an act needs the flexibility to pivot based on its current success. We'd like to see our singles in the 7 digits before releasing an EP. We also won't be playing shows until this happens, as we aren't interested in cashing in on a medium-sized amount of plays.
If the first 2 singles have millions of plays, the move will be to drop the EP. If they stay somewhere in the 100K-500K range, another single (and Vero funded video) will be needed to add to the momentum.
After each video is created with Vero, Influencia will go to work exploiting this on social media. Repurposed content targeted to large niche audiences, creative collaborations with influencers, and Spotify playlist pitching will all help to make a huge dent in the industry for Little Assembly and DATW.
TOTAL: $15K Per Single for Marketing
$2,500 = Pitches to Spotify Independent themed playlists, Artist playlists, and Spotify official curators.
$7,500 = Influencer campaigns on IG, Facebook, and Twitter, meme accounts, parody accounts, comedians, actors, dancers, and models. This takes the bulk of the spending, as one crucial post can cost thousands of dollars.
$5,000 = Advertising:
-As you know, we have had killer CPC rates and a great follower ROI using Instagram Stories Ads, but the audience is mainly in Ukraine, Russia, and Brazil because of the cheaper costs that we could afford. However, our most responsive audience is actually in the USA and Canada. Based on Spotify Insights, we'd like to expand to the countries that respond best to our music, which will cost a bit more.
How Little Assembly Recoups from dropping $15K/Single
Little Assembly still retains 7 songs already signed over, all of which will continue to make money after future ones gain in popularity.
L.A. receives 33% after recouping (same deal as before). One good sync can cover this $15K cost. Influencia is already making several connections for War Road Management and is willing to pitch, as is Sapphire Music, and Little Assembly still retains their cut.
-Little Assembly takes 33% of ticket sales, until all money recouped. They will be looped in on all future show deals until debt is paid off.
-Little Assembly takes 33% of merch, until all money recouped.
2.5M Streams= $15k (at $.006/stream)
Little Assembly keeps same deal as before, getting 33% of the masters, after recouping all money spent on the campaign.
