Cascio Interstates commitment towards the art of music is true and unflinching. We succeed when our customers succeed in their love for music. Its the loyalty of these true music-loving customers that has helped us be successful for the last 68 years, commented Lara Jarrette, Web Content & Marketing Manager at Cascio Interstate Music.

By adding quality customers as email subscribers, ShopSocially is helping us achieve great results with our email marketing program.

Being one of the largest musical instrument dealers in the United State, Cascio Interstate receives a lot of impressions on its e-commerce website. To leverage this traffic better, Cascio Interstate engaged ShopSocially to develop a web strategy focused on rapidly increasing its email subscriber base. Using ShopSociallys Get-an-Email app, Cascio rewarded website visitors with a discount coupon for becoming email subscribers. This enabled users to receive continuous updates about Cascios latest offerings and products. Users felt that they have earned the coupon by becoming email subscribers, and hence tend to convert better. As a result of this strategy, Cascio Interstate saw 2.2% of website visitors turning into quality email subscribers, who converted at rates as high as 17.32%. This allowed Cascio to convert web impressions into actual sales.

Cascio also employed ShopSocially apps for referral marketing. Using the Refer-a-Friend app, Cascio enabled website visitors to refer brand to their friends. Using the Photomonials app, Cascio aggregated customer photos tagged with their brand hashtag on channels like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and showcased them on their website as visual social proof. This constituted a comprehensive customer acquisition strategy for Cascio. In general, referral traffic converts three times better than traffic from other channels, making referral an important part in any customer acquisition strategy.

“Unlike popular perception, email marketing is very much alive and kicking when it comes to new customer acquisition strategy. When augmented with a social media driven push, online marketers can earn rich rewards in form of higher sales conversion rate for these newly acquired customers, said Samir Palnitkar, President at ShopSocially.

Hip Hop Legend & Game Changer Raekwon Takes over Music Choice


New York, NY (PRWEB) April 24, 2015

Raekwon, Hip Hop Legend and Game Changer, is taking over Music Choices Rap Channel to celebrate the release of his new album Fly International Luxurious Art (FILA). Popular tracks featuring Raekwon will be featured throughout the day on the MC Rap Channel culminating in an exclusive sneak peak of the entire album in its entirety on Monday, April 27th at 8pm ET, the night before being released. Music Choice will also host his official album listening party at its studios the same day that will be hosted by Combat Jack (http://www.thecombatjackshow.com)

Its been close to two decades since Raekwon The Chef dropped his pivotal solo debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (a.k.a. The Purple Tape). The project changed the game of 95, as Hip-Hop reached a crossroads where street philosophies and the lap of luxury didnt see eye-to-eye. Raekwon bridged that gap. The Shaolin native and Wu-Tang legionnaire cracked the code of the streets and managed to strike a balance, keeping all corners of the rap game happy. The Chef who kept us fed for 20 summers is back with his sixth solo album, Fly International Luxurious Art (F.I.L.A.), once again tying worlds together and reclaiming his spot as the artist who can do it all.

The MC Rap Channel is available nationally in over 50 million homes. For specific channel numbers for the MC Rap Channel, check your local listings.

Listen to This: DarwinBeats Is a Cloud-based Music Storage and Sharing Platform


(PRWEB) March 31, 2015

On March 30th 2015, DarwinBeats opens for early artist registration. As a cloud-based music storage and sharing platform designed specifically for independent, unsigned artists, DarwinBeats offers an unprecedented venue for up-and-coming talent to connect with listeners, garner acclaim and grab attention.

Using an algorithm that promotes the “natural selection” of music, DarwinBeats empowers the people who make and listen to music. Popular tracks will receive more listens and likes, in turn letting more people listen to and discover the artist behind them. Unpopular tracks will find themselves slowly phased out of playlists.

For artists and audiences, the platform is entirely free. Artists can sign up and upload their music, while audiences can listen to as many tracks as they want, as often as they want.

The app for audiences will be available for Fall 2015. Artists are encouraged to register immediately to begin building their profiles and uploading their tracks in anticipation of the wider release. Early registration also comes with perks, such as 20% higher royalties and free statistical reports once these are introduced.

Company Details

Founded by Cou Kalantary in 2012, DarwinBeats began as a side-project to help unsigned artists connect with their audiences. As a musician and former band member, Cou experienced firsthand the challenges that musicians had to overcome just to reach their audiences. Check out the personal story of DarwinBeats.

“There is a certain disconnect between talented, but unsigned, artists and their prospective listeners. Historically, the record labels have helped bridge this gap by stepping in, working their magic and getting those artists signed. Inevitably, this meant that some artists made it, others did not. It was all about being found. Thankfully, we’re now in a position where artists and their audiences connect in ways the traditional industry would have never imagined. The time has never been better for an app like DarwinBeats.” – Cou Kalantary

After receiving strong feedback from artists and their listeners, DarwinBeats was reimagined in 2015 as a fully-fledged music sharing project. With a full team, and a singular mission, DarwinBeats is now ready for wider launch.

Unique & Exciting New Game Music Jack from Some Anonymous People Lets Users Integrate Their Own Music


Cupertino,CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2015

People who enjoy listening to their favorite music and playing exciting games on their mobile device can now get the best of both worlds by downloading the unique and fun new app https://itunes.apple.com/app/music-jack-lite/id926195659.

Created by Some Anonymous People, Music Jack lets users select songs from their devices library, which then become the soundtrack to an exciting, challenging and incredibly addictive time-based scrolling game. A longer song means a lengthier level, and the games speed is directly linked to the type of music. For example, songs with a fast dance beat speed up the game, while songs with a more relaxed vibe slow down the game.

Regardless of whether theyre playing a fast or slow game, users must rely on sharp, finely-tuned reflexes to score points and collect Musical Elements, which activate power-ups and score multipliers.

Plus, to add another layer of excitement, users must steer clear of the Dark Music, which is constantly hunting them down. They must also avoid various obstacles including asteroids that, upon impact, reduce both the scoring multiplier and speed, and allow the Dark Music to catch up faster. Fortunately, users who do a good job of collecting the above-noted Musical Elements can use them to keep the Dark Music at a distance.

Other Music Jack special features include:

Guest or Facebook login option.
A creative, simple gameplay that is easy to understand but tough to master.
Exceptional graphics and sound effects.
The ability to check high scores via the Game Center and Google Play.

So many mobile games these days are boring and are basically just low quality duplicates of something that was popular months or years ago, commented a spokesperson from Some Anonymous People. And thats why we spent so much time creating Music Jack. Its totally original, and is a unique blend of excitement and fun. Users will love listening to their favorite music as they put their reflexes to the test, grab Musical Elements, avoid obstacles and of course, stay away from the dreaded Dark Music!

Music Jack, the unique and fun new game that lets users integrate their own music, is available for iOS devices from the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/app/musicjack-lite/id926195659, and for Android devices from Google Play at

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.GutShotEntertainment.MusicJunkie.
