Ringtones Driving Single Sales
By Sue Marek

Not only are ringtones getting recognition from the recording industry (see story below), but they are rapidly becoming an important part of the overall marketing and sales strategy for new records.

In fact, some record labels say that ringtone sales are topping single sales and they view the ringtone as the new single, meaning that the ringtone can play a key role in determining how the album will fare in terms of sales and popularity.

Michael Nash, senior vice president, digital strategy and business development for Warner Music Group, says the label has started integrating ringtones into every album or project that it works on. One example of this integration is Madonna and her album Confessions from the Dance Floor. Warner strategically marketed the single from that album, Hung Up, with Motorola and its ROKR phone. The ringtone was released nearly a month before the single was available, and Nash says they have a lot of anecdotal evidence of DJs at radio stations playing the ringtone on the radio because they didn’t have a single to play.

Warner did some radio play analysis on the Hung Up single and found that the song actually received less than 40 percent of the radio play that an artist at No. 1 usually receives. Because the single was a hit, Nash says this indicates that ringtone sales were driving single sales more than radio play.

Warner Music plans to experiment further with this phenomenon. The label is releasing a new song from a relatively unknown hip hop artist called Kiotti. The song, called Minute Plan: the Phone Song, makes a perfect ringtone and ringback tone, so Nash says the company will release it first as a ringtone to see what kind of response it gets. “Warner Music understands that the ringtone is the new single,” Nash says. “What is happening with the ringtone just shows how important mobile is to music.”

Warner Music isn’t alone in its insights. Other record labels are starting to see the analogy between ringtone sales and the success of the song. At the recent BREW 2006 conference in San Diego, Scott Dinsdale, executive vice president of digital operations and new technology at SonyBMG, talked about ringtones pushing radio play in certain markets. In other words, as radio stations were starting to taper off on playing certain singles, if ringtone sales were still strong, that would sometimes drive radio stations to play the single more. “Ringtones are critical, not just for distribution, but for the maximum impact of the record,” Dinsdale said.
