Spotify is wrapping up 2017 with its biggest marketing campaign of the year featuring some humorous new year’s resolutions featuring its top artists.
The 2017 theme, ‘2018 Goals’ builds on the approach of Spotify’s campaign of last year, ‘Thanks, 2016… It's Been Weird.’ The global ‘2018 Goals’ campaign will run in 18 markets and feature over 70 artists.
The streaming music company is using rich data to tell the stories of its users and show that it is optimistic for the next year.
Elements of the campaign include out of home (OOH) marketing and digital, featuring artists including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Bruno Mars and Niall Horan, placed in unexpected locales in early December.
Spotify has enlisted over 70 artists around the world for this year’s campaign and they will be featured in various channels including OOH and social. Artists include Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa, Julia Michaels, Kendrick Lamar, Charlie Puth, Cardi B, Lil Uzi Vert, Bruno Mars and Camila Cabello.
The campaign was developed and executed fully in-house by Spotify’s brand and creative team.
