Neurotic Media Launches Facebook Music Check-In Incentives

Atlanta, GA – April 28, 2011 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced the launch of “Music Check-In Incentives” via private-label mobile sites. Music Check-In Incentives generate brand awareness, encourage in-store (or in-venue) traffic, build consumer loyalty, capture consumer data, and increase sales. Leveraging mobile geo-social marketing, Neurotic Media’s new service allows for action-oriented, trackable cost-per-acquisition metrics.

To use Music Check-In Incentives, consumers visit a brand’s physical location, and while on-location, check in using Facebook on a branded mini-site using their smart phone. They are then immediately rewarded with music MP3 downloads directly to their handset (a single artist promotion, a custom playlist, or X credits to download from a full catalog of millions of songs). The check in process is completed with a custom message from the brand that gets posted on the consumer’s Facebook Wall, informing their friends of the check in location and the reward they received from the brand. “Give people a reason to stop by your business and make a purchase,” says Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO, “and remember that your core consumers also influence the purchase decisions of others through word of mouth and through their postings on Facebook.” While initially launched using Facebook, Neurotic Media’s Mobile Check-In Incentives can utilize geo-location technologies from other social networks.

“We are excited to launch this innovation, which reaffirms our commitment to helping our clients stay in synch with how their consumers interact with social media, technology, and brand,” adds Oren. “Our Music Check-In Incentives are like a musical “Facebook Deal,” an incentive with high perceived value that grants a brand the power to acquire and retain consumers. In the eyes of consumers, the perceived value of music is often greater than cash rewards or other forms of incentives. Our new check in service can generate exposure for our clients, communicate great value about their brand, and help them reach new and existing consumers with a reward everyone loves: The gift of music.”

An example of the new Music Check-In Incentive can be seen on Neurotic Media’s showcase store’s mobile HTML5 site, http://m.amplified.com, which incorporates a “Check In” button into the user experience.

“Neurotic Media is pleased to be the first download provider to make these essential features available in the B2B space,” comments Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s President and CEO. “Record companies constantly seek to deliver more value with their new releases, and music retailers and consumer brands benefit by passing that value on to their consumers.

Consumers enjoy more exciting offerings – new digital configurations, advance release opportunities, and more enticing shopping experiences.”

Neurotic Media’s new “Animated Feature Controls” use light Jquery for cross-browser support (including various portable devices, such as iPads).

Our Digital Distribution Patent

Atlanta, GA – April 13, 2010 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced that it was awarded a patent on fundamental qualities of digital content syndication and distribution which are supported by its proprietary platform. Specifically, USPTO patent number 7,693,914 addresses a unique B2B2C relationship across the entire chain of content owners, merchants/brands, and consumers which, in recent months, has also been referred to in the marketplace as a “Hosted Model.”

Major and independent record companies provision their digital catalogs through Neurotic Media’s patented platform to various outlets (merchants, brand sites, and applications) and are able to provision commercial terms differently for each outlet in the system. For example, different outlets may at times receive different discounts or release windows for a digital product. Outlets are able to review what has been provisioned for them directly from the content owners and make business choices about when and how to sell a product and how much to charge their consumers for it. Consumers, in turn, are exposed to an offering originating from content owners but filtered by the business decisions of the outlets (hence the term B2B2C). Neurotic Media was the first company to launch such a system as a full do-it-yourself software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) platform earlier in 2005.

“We are very pleased to have been awarded this patent – which further validates the strength of our unique technology,” says Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO. “We designed our platform as a tool to empower content owners with hands-on control and transparency over how they monetize their digital distribution process, both in-house and directly with their brand clients and partners. Merchants and brands, in turn, needed to control the merchandising of product and the consumer experience, since that experience defines them and differentiates one merchant from another. Our platform was designed to allow for these mission-critical business relationships to exist with ease in order to drive operational efficiencies for our clients and partners. The resulting patented platform has made Neurotic Media the leader in servicing the private-label download space, with hundreds of brands and sites empowered by our platform and millions of downloads delivered to millions of consumers every year.”
