CASE STUDY: Timmy Trumpet blows up on our MAKEMYPLAYLIST app


The team at TMRW Music wanted a Spotify-specific activation to drive traction on Timmy Trumpet’s priority release Deja-Vu, with artist Savage, and engage his audience on both Spotify and Facebook. Game on.

Sure, a couple of Facebook posts here and there might push a few hundred fans to stream Deja-Vu Spotify, but we knew there had to be a way we could engage a few more.

All 1.4M of them? Probably not. But with the right idea, we could certainly do some damage.

The big idea

This opportunity to run an activation with the objective of driving Spotify streams was the perfect fit for our purpose-built platform, MAKEMYPLAYLIST.

Fans are driven to a dedicated landing page to create their own themed playlist pre-filled with selected songs, then encouraged to share the playlist with their social networks.

This activity drives streams of the pre-filled selected songs, while allowing users to share their favourite music with friends and family.

The strategy

Timmy Trumpet’s MAKEMYPLAYLIST app was pre-filled with the new single Deja-Vu as well as Narco, Punjabi and the hit single Freaks (166M Plays). This left fans to add 6 of their own songs to the playlist.

A money-can’t-buy experience incentivised Timmy Trumpet’s 1.4M-large Facebook audience, with fans given the chance to win a trip for 2 to ‘Road To Ultra Australia’ including flights, accommodation, and AAA backstage passes.

Fans were delivered to the MAKEMYPLAYLIST app from Facebook and once logged into their Spotify account, were able to create and share their playlists without having to leave the page.
