Jaden Social
April 30th, 2013

Pirate! and Jaden Social announce partnership...

Jaden Social Logo

Pirate! is excited to announce a partnership with Jaden Social, a music focused digital marketing agency that excel at connecting muscians to their fans. An artist can be much more successful when employing a combined effort at radio, press, social, online, etc to be sure they are covering all their bases and being seen/heard in all areas of the industry.

Social Media continues to mould the online landscape in new & unexpected ways each day, and for artists trying to cut through in an ultra-competitive music industry these changes have presented both big challenges, but also equally big opportunities. Having a strong brand, presence and marketing strategy on Social Media can be the difference between being heard & making an income from your music, and being swallowed up by the roar of an overcrowded music marketplace.

This is where Jaden Social can help!

Jaden Social is a music-focused digital marketing agency that connects artists to their fans using Social Media. They offer a wide range of online services, which include digital assessments, creative strategy, full channel & content management, paid advertising campaigns on Facebook and YouTube, Twitter fan targeting, digital PR & blogger outreach and much more.

The Jaden Social team is made up of an eclectic mix of musicians, music lovers and music industry veterans, and they take a personal interest in every one of the carefully chosen artists they take on. Jaden Social is currently working with Sony Music, Universal Music, Ministry of Sound and Chugg Entertainment, as well as some of Australia's top artists, including double-platinum selling dance act The Potbelleez and Aussie rock legends Baby Animals & The Angels.

Jaden Social caters to artists of all types - from up & coming indie acts with a limited budget, to well-established acts with a following, to major label-signed touring artists requiring full-time brand management. No matter what your budget and objectives, Jaden Social has the skills, the experience, and most importantly the team to get your music out to the world and in front of the people who matter!

As our friends at Jaden Social put it: "As the digital age continues to swallow up traditional music promotion methods, artists and their marketing teams are focusing more of their efforts (and budgets) on Social Media, paid advertising and SEO. Yet with this monumental shift in strategy, “old fashioned” radio promotion still remains a very important component in today’s music marketing mix, especially on the non-commercial airwaves. In fact, Social Media marketing and radio promotion are becoming more & more entwined in many artists’ marketing strategies; a trend that we at Jaden Social are excited to see develop further in the future." Keep reading more about what they had to say about college radio and how we can all work together here!

Past, present and soon to be Pirate! clients will receive 10% off all Jaden Social campaigns. Just contact us first (steve at piratepirate.com) so we can put you in touch!
