Great social marketing means social listening

In case you missed it, Turntable.fm is a new social media website that allows users to interactively share music. TT, as it's called, allows users to create virtual rooms, which other users can join. Designated users, so-called "DJs," choose songs to be played to everyone in the room (the audience), while all users are able to talk with one other and rate the performance through a text interface. Launched in May 2011, by late June TT had already scored 140,000 active users.

Now that Turntable.fm has taken off, confirming our initial positive take, it's also giving folks a chance to start testing new interactive approaches to self-promotion.

One DJ who has risen to the top of the Turntable.fm charts (racking up a record 9000 points and 1000 fans), DJ Wooooo, recently shared his take on how to rock the Turntable.fm approval meter with our friends at Betabeat.com…

DJ Wooooo's simple rules for success…

  1. Sticking to genre is key
  2. The crowd is very fickle
  3. They want new and different, but not TOO different
  4. Mood in the room can shift quickly
  5. So don't "set and forget" your DJ queue
  6. People want to be in the most packed room
  7. So try and be famous, like DJ Woooooo

Says Woooo; "As far as my song selection goes, it's a delicate mix of popular songs and experimental tracks." Adding: ""If you're just yanking songs from Hype Machine without figuring out how they fit the vibe, you will get called out. Just because some website says they like a song doesn't mean the Turntable crowd will."

Today Turntable.fm is about potential. Whether that potential will be tapped, whether TT will launch a DJ career a la YouTube/Justin Bieber remains to be seen. You could tune in tomorrow or you could be that next overnight sensation by checking out Turntable.fm today.

Dj Teen Wolf

In the Spotlight: DJ Teen Wolf
Taking a bite out of big beats...

We can thank Kanye West for turning us on to DJ Teenwolf (aka Kevin Ross). So innovative and edgy was T-wolf as producer/DJ for hip-hop act Ninjasonik that Kanye blew up their 2009 "Daylight (Remix)" video on his personal blog with mad praise. Less than a year later the follow-up video, "Bars" went viral and so did Teenwolf's rep as a remixer.

"No boundaries," says Teenwolf of the free-ranging pursuit of new frontiers that has since resulted in remixes for a diverse roster of artists that includes Gucci Mane ("I'm Expectin"), UK superstars Florence and The Machine ("Rabbit Heart"), Baltimore rapper Rye Rye, and indie starlet MNDR.     

His alchemic blend of hip-hop beats and indie spirit has more recently seen the industrious New York based DJ's blend of funk, soul, house, indie rock, electro, salsa, Baltimore Club, moombahton and dubstep sharing the bill with artists Matt & Kim, Clipse, Japanther, The Death Set, Major Lazer and Spank Rock at venues ranging from intimate punk rock clubs to concert halls.

What's new on the horizon? A new mash-up album, Matt & Kim & T.I. that DJ Teenwolf has kindly provided a free link to, in its entirety; and a new pop-oriented solo-project targeted at taking the T to the mainstream.

You can sink your teeth into some DJ Teenwolf here…

Useless Information! - Fun facts, trivia, or just plain silly stuff!

"Have you had your McAloo Tikki Break Today?" The sun never sets on the McDonald's empire. Because the behemoth has restaurants on every continent (except Antarctica) and in more than 100 countries, it needs to adapt to local tastes and customs. Whether it's called "McDo" "Mackdonkan" or "de Mac", you'll find some menu items that are reassuringly familiar -- and some, not so much!
McAloo Tikki (India):
This vegetarian sandwich consists of a breaded, fried patty of spiced potatoes and peas topped with fresh tomato, onion, and vegan tomato mayonnaise on a toasted bun.
Twisty Pasta (Hong Kong):
Tired of pancakes for breakfast? Try this meal-in-a-bowl that contains chicken broth, pasta, tomatoes, cabbage, corn, greens, ham (or breakfast sausage), and a fried egg.
Rice Fantastic (Hong Kong):
Sometimes you feel like a bun; sometimes you don't. This sandwich is made from from two flattened patties of sticky rice.
McOz (Australia):
This burger is made from Australian beef and "mouthwatering beetroot".
McShawarma (Israel):
In Israel, McDonald's offers kosher and nonkosher restaurants, but they all serve the McShawarma -- a sandwich of shaved lamb wrapped in fluffy flatbread.
Tamago Double Mac (Japan):
This burger starts with the classic two all-beef patties, throws on some fairly typical bacon, but then finishes it with hot pepper sauce and a poached egg. Cheese is optional.
Seasoned Fries (Japan):
McDonald's famous fries are shaken with powdered seasoning in a paper bag and are available in nori (seaweed), curry, BBQ, and Mexican flavors.
McKroket (The Netherlands):
This breaded, deep-fried patty of beef and potato topped with Dijon mustard sauce is the McDonald's version of the traditional Dutch croquette.
Samurai Pork Burger (Thailand):
Pork patty marinated with teriyaki sauce and topped with mayonnaise, lettuce, and a pickle.
Spam Musubi (Hawaii):
Fancy some Spam in the morning? This breakfast dish consists of a slice of fried Spam on top of sticky rice, tied with a strip of seaweed.
McPoutine (Canada):
Poutine - the combination of french fries, gravy, and cheese curds - is practically the official dish of Quebec.
McCalabresa (Brazil):
This sandwich is the McDonald's take on a traditional Brazilian sandwich, consisting of a slab of pepperonilike sausage covered in vinaigrette.
Chicken McCurry Pan (India):
This dish is made of spicy bread filled with tomato curry, chicken and peppers and topped with cheese.
McPalta (Chile):
This local favorite includes avocado paste smeared on pork or beef.
Greek Mac (Greece):
Two Big Mac patties, in a pitta with lettuce, special sauce and tzatziki.
McSpaghetti with McNuggets (Italy)
