Kiki, do you love me? : A qualitative study about how artists can market a song with the help of choreography. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Viral marknadsföring är någonting som alltid har funnits på ett eller annat sätt. De senaste åren har sociala medier tagit en stor roll inom marknadsföring, framförallt för virala kampanjer. De senaste åren har något som kallas “challenges” funnits i våra flöden på olika sociala medie plattformar. Många av dessa är kopplade till dans. Många känner igen “In My Feelings-Challenge, Harlem Shake, Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) och Gangnam Style”. Idag så har många låtar fått mer uppmärksamhet och streams, tack vare en viral koreografi som spridit sig på ett eller annat sätt. Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka hur artister kan använda koreografi för att marknadsföra en låt, samt vilka faktorer som höjer potentialen till att få den viral. Vidare undersöker vi betydelsen av image hos en artist vid marknadsföring av en låt med koreografi. Hur kan en låt bli viral i samband med koreografi? Hur kan en artist sprida sin koreografi via sociala medier? Detta är frågor som vi i denna studie har besvarat efter bästa möjliga förmåga. Vår empiri är baserad på 8 kvalitativa intervjuer med personer som har en relation till ämnet, samtliga respondenter har bidragit med mycket bra tankar och åsikter. Vi kom fram till att det ligger stor betydelse i vilken image artisten har, samt målgrupp och aktiviteten på sociala medier. Vi kom också fram till att video marketing är en oerhört central faktor vid spridandet av koreografier och man kan öka potentialen av att få en viral koreografi genom att samarbeta med passande influencers, men man ska inte som artist uppmana till att starta en koreografi självmant.

Abstract [en]

Viral marketing is something that has always existed in one way or another. For the past few years, social media has taken a major part within marketing, especially for viral campaigns. In the past years, something called "challenges" has existed in our feeds on our various social media platforms. Many of these challenges are connected to dance. Many people recognize "In My Feelings Challenge, Harlem Shake, Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) and Gangnam Style". Today, many songs has gotten more attention and streams, thanks to a viral choreography connected to the song, that has spread in one way or another. The purpose of this study is to investigate how artists can use choreography to market a song, as well as which factors increase the potential to get it viral. Furthermore, we analyze the importance of image for an artist with the cnnection to the marketing of a song with choreography. How can a song become viral with the help of choreography? How can an artist spread their choreography through social media? These are questions that we in this study have answered in the best ability as possible. Our empirical data is based on 8 qualitative interviews with people who have a relation in some way or another to the subject. All respondents have contributed with very good thoughts and opinions. Our conclution with this study is that it is a great importance in which image the artist has, as well as the target group and the artists activity on social media. We also found that video marketing is an extremely important factor in the spreading of choreographies. To increase the potential of having a viral choreography, the artist can cooperate with suitable influencers, but the artist their selfes should not encourage their fans to start a choreography independently.
