CFgear, an etailer specializing in custom USB flash drives, is turning up the heat in its marketing attempts to dominate the music flash drive industry. From encouraging start up musicians to use custom, preloaded flash drives in their presentations before music industry producers, to encouraging bands to go all out and use music flash drives in lieu of CDs in album releases, CFgear is definitely establishing themselves as the primary solution for bands choosing to take this new & high tech route.
In the past couple years, several mainstream rock groups have ventured out and released music albums on flash drives with mixed, but overall positive results. CFgear hopes to see this trend carried over to the music start up world by encouraging brave new bands to tackle the technology head on and use the trend to help themselves kick off both their album as well as their band’s name.
Beginning bands will need to weigh the cost of the technology (significantly more than burning CDs!) with the income that will come in and the technology’s associated extra boost for the band’s image & branding. Done right, going all out with music flash drives may be just what a band needs to help it go national.
The benefits with band flash drives are many: not only can a band preload an entire album on a flash drive, but often, a band can load two or more entire albums on the USB drive. Along with an entire array of songs, a band could also preload a music video and even a comic video interviewing each band member. A band can also include text bios (or even audio/video bios) of each band member, scores of pictures of band events/families, and links to the band’s website(s) and forums. The possibilities are endless.
For both established bands willing to go the extra mile and connect better with fans and for garage bands desiring to leave home base and go national, rock band USB flash drives may be the choice (though pricey) to help boost your name & prominence and help your group stick out from the crowd.
