At Think Big Online, we’ve been having a lot of fun with Jess our Social Media guru who suggests to our clients that Spotify playlists may be the next big thing for social media marketing. Her blog post about Spotify has been popular and the idea seems to be catching on.

 

Take a chance on this:

  1. Go to Spotify and create a playlist that represents some entertaining tunes for your company.
  2. When creating your playlist, have some good-natured fun (see more below).
  3. Include your employees in the playlist creation by asking for suggestions (accept that sometimes your employees know more about what’s cool than you do).
  4. Post the playlist on your Facebook account so that your customers can see what you’re playing at the office or what tunes your employees love.
  5. Encourage your customers to let you know what they think and what they would add.

Here are some of the songs we’ve come up with to get the conversation started…the list is not exhaustive and we welcome your additions in the comments below.
