Reverb Features Sellers in 1st Connected TV Campaign
Reverb has launched its first-ever connected TV campaign in select markets, aimed at driving more buyers to Reverb sellers ahead of and during the holiday season. The “World’s Local Music Store” video campaign celebrates the Reverb seller community, which said it continued to see high demand for musical instruments online through the third quarter.
“We know that more music makers have been searching for gear online over the past two years than ever before. As that trend continues, we wanted to show those players that our sellers have the gear that they’re looking for,” said Kristen Cho, Reverb’s chief marketing officer. “Our marketing team acts as an extension of our sellers’ teams, promoting their shops and their inventory to the Reverb community and beyond. Our goal with this campaign — and with nearly all that we do — is to drive more buyers to our sellers.”
The “World’s Local Music Store”’ campaign highlights how Reverb’s sellers help musicians find the perfect instrument, no matter where they’re located. Featuring Reverb sellers Evolution Music and Modern Music, the video underscores how Reverb helps sellers get their inventory in front of buyers all over the world.
Since the beginning of the year, music gear across categories has remained in demand on Reverb. When looking at January to September 2021, searches for synths and keyboards are up 34% year over year, which is notable given the popularity of all types of gear in 2020. During the same period, searches for pro-audio equipment, recording gear and guitars remained high with Reverb recording more than 4,500 searches for guitars for every hour from January to September this year.
Last year, Reverb reported its most successful holiday season for sellers to date. As the 2021 holiday season approaches, Cho encourages sellers to get all of their inventory listed online now and to dedicate resources to communicating with customers early and often about the status of their orders.
