Nashville, TN (December 17, 2013)… In a stand of support for local Christian retail and in partnership with The Munce Group, StowTown Records encourages their fans to
DRIVE to their local store to purchase Doug Anderson’s newest release, Drive. Fans will be able to reserve their copy beginning December 30, 2013, through the Munce store-finder, which will be available on both the label website (www.stowtownrecords.com) and Doug Anderson’s website (www.dougandersonmusic.com). Buyers who order in advance and pick up at their local Christian retailer will receive an autographed copy of the CD.
As an expression of appreciation to their retail partners, neither StowTown Records nor Doug Anderson Music will have this project available direct from their webstore for the first 2 weeks of the release. Instead, they will be encouraging fans to visit their local Christian stores to purchase.
The Munce Group will begin the promotion with e-blasts and blog posts written by Anderson in their online magazine, MTL (mtlmagazine.com) starting December 30th, as well as banner ads on their websites. Anderson will also be performing Monday evening, January 20th the Munce’s CPE Event in Hershey, PA, the evening before the project releases.
The promotion will also be a featured topic on social media with Doug’s rabid fan base, which includes fans of his solo work, as well as fans of Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, of which Doug is a member – which includes over 100,000 Facebook fans. Both Provident Distribution and MTL will feature on their social media as well.
“Thank you StowTown Records and The Munce Group for uniting in an exclusive window of retail promotion for independent retail,” says Randy Davis, Vice President of
Sales & Marketing for Provident Distribution. “We continue to seek unique opportunities support Christian retail in local communities.”
