Breaking into New Markets (Nawwar and Balqies) Introduction into the Asian Market (Malaysia being a key player). Social Media (Twitter and Facebook) would play a huge part in success in promotion. Record distribution would be easier if collaboration with Brunei and Singapore is successful. No TV or Radio used as this is deemed unsuccessful.
Promotion through competition – ‘10 fans can have dinner with Gareth’ be launched 1 month befor e the main proposed concert date. Merchandise at event would be suited to posters and gig t-shirts. Fan Club would be a successful option to monitor following/impact in the Asian market and to generate awareness. Translation or music lyrics not required.
