Tips Music crosses 2 million fans mark on Facebook

MUMBAI: Tips Music has become one of the largest entertainment brands on Facebook in India. The company?s Facebook community crossed 2 million fans and has reported to have one of the highest engagement rates on the social network.

Tips was one of the last to join the social media bandwagon but has surpassed their competitors in a short span of two years. The company has the largest fan following on Facebook, not only amongst the music companies, but also in the film production companies in India.

"We?re very excited to cross this milestone on Facebook, we appreciate all the support our fans have given us in the last few years. Our company mission has always been to give the audience quality music and films and we?re happy to be spreading this to the digital platform. I?m personally very active on various social mediums and enjoy having conversations with people on Facebook and Twitter," informs Tips Industries Limited managing director Kumar Taurani.

Tips Music, unlike its competitors, broke the trend of depending only on new music to grow their community and leveraged their rich 90s music catalogue to engage with fans. "When we started our Facebook initiative, every expert we met told us the page would only grow during the time of a new soundtrack release. The problem was, at the time we only had one film up for release and a gap of a year till the next," says Taurani.

Tips which has a catalogue of 25,000+ tracks, did not want to limit their Facebook promotions to 10-15 recent songs. "We developed a unique strategy where the main focus was to refresh people?s memory with the music from our 90s catalogue while introducing the youth to classic songs they may have never heard," says Tips Industries Limited senior VP and business head Sahas Malhotra.

The company also started sharing its content from films like Khal Nayak, Rangeela, Imtihaan, Phool Aur Kaante and Raja Hindustani. "Our initial interaction with people was very low. This forced us to question our decision. Though music from the 60s, 70s and 80s are considered evergreen and retro cool from a young person?s perspective, the 90s did not yet have a label."

Tips then started receiving messages from their fans thanking them for sharing a song they had heard 15 years ago. "People now knew where they could get the hit songs of the 90s. Our fans on Facebook then started sending pictures of a cassette, asking if the title was available digitally. This forced us to dig deeper into our catalogue and churn out compilations with songs we didn?t even think would be popular in this day and age. We were pleasantly surprised to see the overwhelming response from the youth and it?s a great sign to see them consuming hits from the 90s."

Prabhudheva?s Ramaiya Vastavaiya starring Girish Kumar and Shruti Haasan releasing 19 July, Rajkumar Santoshi?s Phata Poster Nikhla Hero starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D?Cruz on 20 September and ?It?s Entertainment? starring Akshay Kumar and Tamannah Bhatia directed by renowned screenplay writers Sajid-Farhad releasing 28 March 2014 are the forthcoming movies of Tips Music.
