JEENI PRO MARKETING – INTRODUCTION

You’re a creative artist, musician or performer, right?
You want to be rewarded for what you do, correct?
You want to grow your fanbase, OK?
You want recognition, applause and success, true?
You don’t want to pay other people for empty promises of help, agreed?
You’ve got a Jeeni Showcase, and now you want to put it to work, yes?

Congratulations! JEENI PRO MARKETING is here to handle all of this for you, no sweat. Well, maybe just a bead of sweat, but you’ve done all the hard work already, so here’s how to put it in the spotlight, centre-stage.

JEENI PRO MARKETING is an exclusive service for Jeeni Pro Users. It reaches out, promotes and markets your creative talent, simply and effectively. It handles your releases, your merchandise, your events and your news, all at the touch of a button. Best of all, JEENI PRO MARKETING delivers precise results and clear stats with ongoing reports about your campaign, so you can see what works and what doesn’t, to make it even better next time round.

Your Target Audience

JEENI PRO MARKETING allows you to reach out to 3 sectors of your target audience:
1. Your existing fanbase, who are already part of your network.
2. Brand new fans who have voted for your tracks and opted-in to receive your promotions.
3. The mass of Jeeni users who allow push-notifications; in other words potential fans who are not yet aware of your work.

So the good news is that even if you haven’t got any views, votes or fans yet, you can still get your marketing campaigns in front of a new global audience.

Your Marketing Methods

There are two types of marketing methods.
1. email marketing
2. push-marketing

Email marketing only reaches your existing fanbase, but push-marketing reaches everyone who allows notifications on their mobile, laptop or desktop devices. Push notifications have a great advantage because users do not need to have their browser open on their device, if they have allowed notifications.
JEENI PRO MARKETING lets you use both methods.

Your Backlinks

A backlink is a link from somewhere on the web to a target somewhere else on the web. Think of a backlink as a sort of citation. Search engines love citations.

When you create a campaign with JEENI PRO MARKETING, you send an email to your fanbase and a push-notification to all website visitors and mobile users who allow notifications. Your campaign generates an automatic backlink to your Showcase to lead fans by the nose straight to your work. You also get a whole load of URLs (website page addresses) to use as backlinks on social networks.

JEENI PRO MARKETING backlinks are carefully created to be effective. They tie in to your campaign to track, trace and measure the number of people who respond to it.

A backlink that has been responded to is added to your campaign report and a reward is added to your account up to the maximum for your campaign allowance. After all, the more successful your campaign is for you, the more traffic we get on Jeeni and the better we like it. Everybody wins.

Some Patronising & Possibly Irritating Advice

Before releasing a JEENI PRO MARKETING campaign into the wild, it’s a really good idea to make sure of the following six things:
1. Your Profile and Showcase information is up to date.
2. Your images are the ones you want to display to the world.
3. Your audio or video tracks have been uploaded.
4. You have chosen the most suitable ready-made template to attract the masses.
5. You have set the best date and time to kick off your campaign to tie in with any other promotions you are doing.
6. You have set a suitable date and time to close your campaign so you don’t bore the pants off people.

Creating Your Campaign

Ready? OK, here we go. To create a campaign, follow these steps:

Step 1:
Login as a Jeeni PRO

Step 2:
Click on the Marketing option from your Profile page. You will be whisked off to your personal My Marketing page.

Step 3:
The campaign builder panel is towards the left of your screen. You can select NEW CAMPAIGN to start over, My Marketing to monitor the progress and results of your campaigns, or My Marketing Documents to access your resources. To start, hit the red button that says NEW CAMPAIGN. A panel of tools is revealed that says Create My Campaign, and it does exactly that.

Step 4:
Write the words

Hit the top icon to write the words you want to communicate for your new marketing campaign.

The Campaign Title is for your own use to identify your campaign and the reports that come with it, so give it a clear, unique title. Remember, you may well create dozens of marketing campaigns, so you’ll want to recognise each one for future reference.

The Campaign Subject is the all-important subject header you want the world to see, so make it clear, relevant, punchy, and something that encourages the world to open it and read it.

The white text panel is where you write your Campaign body text. This is the message you want to communicate to your audience, excite them and get them involved. There’s a standard set of formatting tools to make it look good, including any links you want to include.

Step 5:
Add the images

This tab is where you set an individual thumbnail icon and larger marketing banner image. They are used in the push-notifications as well as your email campaign.

The Icon will be displayed alone on desktop web-push notifications, and both the Icon and Banner will be used on mobile push notifications, such as hand-held devices. Your Banner can also be used as part of the email message, depending on the email template you select. This is explained a little later.

If you don’t select any images at all during this step, then your Jeeni profile “gravatar” icon and showcase/profile banner will be used automatically. If your marketing banner is the same as your showcase banner, then only your showcase banner will be used.

Step 6:
Choose your email template

This tab saves you a huge amount of work. There’s a load of ready-made templates for your email marketing campaigns. The purpose of these ready-mades is that they can be used immediately, without any programming skills or technical knowledge. Just select the one that suits you best and JEENI PRO MARKETING will deliver your entire campaign ready-made.

Templates include simple layouts and more complex ones, and they feature a mixture of elements, placings and priorities.

The elements can include your campaign title, dates, showcase image, marketing banner, campaign message, latest videos, one or more newsfeeds and the key to world peace and happiness.

Step 7:
Target your audience

This tab allows you to select where in the world you want your push marketing campaigns to appear.
For example you may want to target North American audiences in one campaign and Europeans in another parallel campaign, and compare how they respond.

Similarly you may want to run a separate campaign in Spanish aimed at South America, or include the whole world apart from Oceania under because you once had an unhappy experience playing cricket in Australia. Please note that we include Antarctica, because we believe penguins deserve a break.

If you do not make any selection at all, then your marketing campaign will be sent to every location on the planet. Including the penguins.

Step 8:
Schedule your campaign

This tab allows you to schedule a start date and exact start time for the campaign, as well as a closing date and time for the campaign. If you leave this blank, then the send date will be scheduled for the next immediate slot available.

Jeeni is set up to launch the queue of data for marketing campaigns in carefully controlled batches to avoid bottlenecks in our services, so there may be a slight delay before your campaign gets squirted into the pipeline of hope. This only relates to when your push-message campaigns get sent out, and currently does not affect email communications which will normally be delivered immediately.

Step 9:
Send and launch your campaign

When you are satisfied that your new marketing campaign is ready to go, simply hit the red button that says Send Push Notification and it will be launched.

Please remember, once your campaign is sent there is no way to unsend it, so make sure you are completely happy with everything before you release it!

My Marketing Reports

The My Marketing button sits below the NEW CAMPAIGN button on your screen, and this is where you reveal the ongoing results of the marketing campaigns that you have sent out. It also displays some really useful links to click and copy for posting on your own social networks. We’ll get to them a little later.

Click on My Marketing to reveal the data, stats and results for your marketing campaigns. If you have launched several campaigns then the most recent campaign is displayed with a darker background.

At the top of each campaign marketing report you will see:
• the Campaign Title for your own use
• the Subject of the campaign that your audience sees
• a Campaign Code that relates to Google Analytics
• the Start and End dates of your campaign
• your Campaign Status, shown in green.

Your Campaign Status can display one of the following messages:
• Campaign creation in progress – copying subscriptions = your campaign is still being created
• New campaign = your new campaign is ready to send
• Pending = your campaign is waiting in the queue to be sent
• In progress = campaign sending is in progress
• Sent = your campaign has been sent
• Cancelled by user = you decided to cancel your campaign before it had time to be sent
• Has Ended = the campaign expiry date/time has passed and your campaign has ended
• No active recipients = you don’t have any active fans at the moment
• Error = there was a problem when the campaign was sent out
• Test campaign sent = this is for our techies if they need to test your account
• Campaign awaiting results of A/B testing = this is also one for our techies
• Archived = another one for the Jeeni nerds to keep a record

Below your Campaign Status is where your Push Stats appear, with values in numbers and graphics, as follows:
• the number of targets Sent to
• the number safely Delivered
• the number that have been Clicked On to view
• the number that Failed to be delivered

Harnessing your social networks.

A very effective way of growing your fanbase and attracting more people to your Jeeni Showcase is to harness your existing and future social networks.

JEENI PRO MARKETING does this automatically for you, without the bother of having to duplicate everything time after time.

At the bottom of your report panel are your Other Hits. These show the Social Network Stats for your campaign, and this is a real bonus service from JEENI PRO MARKETING.

For example, if you have an existing Twitter account, Facebook account and your own fan database of email addresses, then hit the relevant social network icon to automatically generate a link code for each one.

Click on one of the social media icons to copy the URL (web page address) of your campaign, and paste it in to your relevant social media post. Then send out the post and anyone who clicks on the link will land on your JEENI PRO MARKETING campaign.

The number of successful hits you achieve for your campaign via each social network is displayed at the bottom of your marketing report panel, like the one above.

At time of writing, this works with the following social media platforms, but by the time you read this we may well have added more.

• your own email list
• Facebook
• Twitter
• Google
• LinkedIn
• Pinterest
• YouTube

As an additional service for Jeeni PRO members, you will automatically receive a regular email containing your latest marketing report and stats.

My Marketing Documents

My Marketing Documents is the lower button of your Marketing group, and is where the library of detailed marketing resources and guides sit. It will be updated and added to as Jeeni evolves.

Newsfeeds

Jeeni marketing uses a multi-doodah approach when it comes to connecting with your existing audience and growing your fan-base. This is because if one strategy doesn’t work too well, then chances are that an alternative one will.

As well as the automated marketing suite that Jeeni offers, there is a built-in newsfeed service. When any Jeeni user opts-in to follow you, they are instantly added to your communications list and will receive updates from your newsfeed as well as your email campaigns.

Exploiting newsfeeds is dealt with in the next section.

Marketing Campaign Checklist

Please don’t launch a marketing campaign until you have updated your showcase with the relevant audio/video tracks and your latest information. Here’s a campaign checklist to remind yourself of what needs to be done before you hit that big red button.

• I have an email where I can be reached
• I have added my social media links to my profile
• I have uploaded an image for my thumbnail or logo
• I have uploaded a banner image
• I have written a description about what it is I am trying to market
• I have uploaded at least three audio/video tracks
• I have written at least three newsfeeds

And before you say that you only want to promote one audio/video and one newsfeed, here’s what we recommend.

By all means promote your latest release as a stand-alone if that’s what you insist, but you will do far better to exploit the triple approach of:
1. a short trailer audio/video leading to your full offering
2. a call-to-action like a special offer or exclusive
3. an overview or showreel of your work

Remember, many fans may not be aware of the range of your work, and they may not even like what you are currently marketing, but they could absolutely love something else in your range.

The same goes for newsfeeds, where we recommend a similar triple approach of:
1. a teaser leading to your latest offering
2. a call-to-action like a special offer or exclusive
3. an overview about your work

Thank you for using JEENI PRO MARKETING. May you be successful and add to the happiness of the species.

JEENI NEWSFEEDS are for Jeeni Pros. They are used to force-feed your announcements, offers, greetings, prayers and propaganda to the masses.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It’s a technical thingy that spews out information which gets automatically updated and gobbled up by computers and phones. Your information is fetched by a user’s RSS feed reader in an easy to read format. RSS is really cool, and it has a universal icon wherever it’s available.

You will need to create your own RSS link, using any existing RSS system or service that you have, and copy it in to your Profile.

There are two types of newsfeeds available on Jeeni, a public RSS feed and a personal RSS feed.

Your Public RSS Feed
This is for you to contact Jeeni users on an individual basis and keep them up to date with your latest news and events. It doesn’t matter if they are a logged-in user, a registered Jeeni subscriber or just a casual visitor, when they copy your feed to an app or bookmark it in their browser, they’ll receive your newsfeeds.

This means that as a Jeeni Pro, you can extend your reach much further than to fans who are simply following you, and this is vital method of expanding and growing your audience outside your existing network.

Your Public RSS link is displayed as an orange icon on your public profile. It’s also right there in your showcase, in the row of any other social links you have chosen to display.

Your Personal RSS Feed
Personal Newsfeeds are selected by any Jeeni subscriber to follow and keep up to date with news from any number of Jeeni artists and pros. In other words, it’s a private opt-in to receive communications.

The My Artists tab in the MY JEENI menu takes you to all the artists you have elected to follow.

Click on the icon after “My Artists I want to send me updates and offers”
and they will all be listed.

Every time an artist you have chosen to follow updates their feed you will get a notification of their update. Likewise, anybody who has elected to follow you will get your update from your own newsfeed as soon as you release it.

You’re on your own as far as what you include in your Newsfeed updates, of course, and Jeeni can take no responsibility for what you post. All we can hope is that it’s honest, legal and decent.

NO SCAMS
The music industry has been plagued by profiteers, charlatans and rip-off merchants. Jeeni is completely different. Our promise is to to treat our listening audience and our creative talent ethically, fairly, honestly and with respect.

NO ADVERTS
On Jeeni your listening and viewing pleasure will never be ruined by jingles or adverts, you won’t be force-fed anything you don’t want to see or hear, and your choices will never be manipulated by outside influences and unwanted pressures.

NO FAKES
Jeeni content is for original creative work, so no covers please. What you see is what you get. Our charts cannot be bought or influenced. They are based on individual positive votes, and they are truly democratic.

NO RIP-OFFS
We do not insult our artists with false promises or pitiful royalty payments that add up to next to nothing. 100% of Jeeni artist merchandising profits go direct to our artists. If your work is used in productions because of Jeeni, that’s great, you keep 100% of everything due to you from soundtracks, jingles, titles, incidental music, whatever. And profits on streamed concerts and masterclasses are shared with our celebrity artists, mentors and Award Winners.

NO LOOKING AWAY
Jeeni supports charitable projects, including Arms Around The Child, providing safe loving homes and support for orphaned children, vulnerable children and those at risk of exploitation.

NO HYPOCRISY
We will not accept partnerships or funding from any organisation or individual who we know to be involved with armaments, harming the environment, political, religious or unethical organisations. We positively seek out corporate relationships with those who make a positive contribution to the wellbeing of people and the environment.

NO EXPLOITATION
We pledge to use available funds to create local jobs, new opportunities and genuine resources. We will not exploit students, interns or volunteers, but treat them as valued members of Team Jeeni and reward them to the best of our ability.

NO TAX DODGING
Unlike certain other entertainment platforms and content providers, we pledge to pay all our due taxes in full, because we choose to make a positive contribution to the health, welfare and education of the society in which we live.

THE JEENI CHARTS
Every Jeeni channel has its own set of popularity charts. First use the Select Channel service at the top of every page, and then display the chart that suits you best:
Latest presents all the new contents of that channel, starting with the most recent upload.
Votes presents the contents of that channel in order of popularity, starting with the most votes.
Archive presents the historic contents of that channel, starting with the oldest upload.
Random presents all the contents of that channel in completely random order, if you fancy taking a chance and being presented with some surprises.

HOW TO VOTE
To boost a track up the charts, you have to be logged in as a Jeeni member. There’s only one vote per member per track.

REWARDS FOR VOTING
We want to encourage you to vote as often as you can, so a little reward will be added to your account for the first 50 tracks you vote for in each $10 goal limit.

In a word, “No.” You have to be logged in as a Jeeni member to vote, either as a Free Jeeni or as a Pro.

Anyone or any thing can view the contents of Jeeni, whether they’re a member or not, and the Jeeni system knows every time a track is viewed, on a mobile, a pad, a desktop, a smart TV, a console, or any other device. But views are not a very democratic way of judging the popularity of creative content, because views can be faked.

We don’t take any notice of views from robots or click-farms or multiple identities from the same address, or any of the other hazards that some other services fall victim to. That’s why we stick to votes and not views.

DEMOCRATIC VOTING
Yes, of course you can vote for your own tracks, just like all politicians vote for themselves at elections. And they encourage all their supporters, friends and families to vote for them too.

ONE MEMBER ONE VOTE
Remember, to vote for a track you have to be logged in as a Jeeni member, and there’s only one vote per member per track.
