Q4 Digital Opps: HMV appoints R.O.EYE to aim for niche movie fans

Subject: TV, Press, Cinema, Outdoor, Radio, Digital

Company: HMV is a popular British retailer of movies, television shows, music, consumer technology, and games.

Opportunity: The former vulnerable account has appointed R.O.EYE as its digital marketing agency to target niche online fan communities. The goal is to promote HMV 'Steelbook' exclusives which are new releases and re-released classic films in specially designed tins that feature bonus footage.

The company will focus on popular franchises such as Harry Potter and Star Wars and will reach out through social media channels Twitter and Facebook to engage dedicated fans. R.O.EYE will also lock down demographics to put the right releases in front of consumers. Online/social media sellers should entertain the company by pitching high ROIs through millennial concentration. 

This is a sign of digital emphasis to come. Pathmatics is showing a significant increase from last year, in both video and desktop. Q4 is by far the media retailer's biggest spending period followed by another productive season, Q1. Get in touch with contacts from the7stars immediately as HMV is in the middle of planning.
