How does the way you purchase music differ from your grandparents?

Think about how you purchase and interact when it comes to entertainment. Now think about how your grandparents purchase/ entertainment. Other than perhaps preferring a different style of music, how do their buying, consuming, interacting methods differ than yours? Why is that important to music marketers?

When I want to watch a movie, I can go to movies on my phone and be able to rent and watch it all through my phone. I can make purchases like that because my debit card information is already saved onto the app "Wallet" on my phone and I just have to click purchase and it's done. My grand parent's would probably go to the Redbox or Walmart and buy the movie. When I want to listen to music, I can either look it up for free on Youtube or I can quickly buy it on the Itunes app. My grand parents probably have no idea what either of those apps are. Life is easier for people who use updated technology than the people who don't like to use the new technology. My grand parents listened to their music on a record player. Record players are probably way more expensive than it would be to just have an Iphone and use the free apps on there. More people probably spend their money on apps than cd's and record players.

steven tyler

Daily blog: Read the article attached to this post. What do you think about a hard rock singer opening in Nashville? Nashville is considered to be the center of country music. Do you think the Nashville Film Festival is focused on country music or all genres? Do you think Tyler would have been selected if he was still only doing rock? Watch the movie trailer if time permits  

I absolutely love Steven Tyler and I think it is awesome that he is opening in nashville. His new album has changed in genre from rock to country but i think it is amazing. I think that the Nashville film festival is focused on country music but steven tyler is not known for his country music. This is a way to show that he is testing out the water in a new genre and it can give him and the festival more publicity. It is focusing on a larger target market now since there is a singer with a different tone. I do not think he would have been selected if he was still doing only rock.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

How entertainment marketing has changed

Daily Blog: Discuss how entertainment marketing changed after television became popular. Make a list of at least 5 changes since 1945.

Television changed the world. It has been one of the biggest inventions of time. Every house you go into has at least one television and sometimes more than that. I know in my house there is a television in almost every room. Do you ever just sit at home watching T.V. and a commercial for Hardee's pops up and they are advertising a huge Baconator and all of a sudden you are craving one of those burgers? That's the whole point of commercials. They are wanting you to go out and buy their product. How do you think they advertised for things before the television became popular? Businesses probably had a lot better sales after the television arrived. Television provided company's advertising. More businesses probably started to be made because they knew that if they were able to make a commercial and get it on T.V. then it could become successfu…
