Well, it looks like ‘Winter Song’ by TwitterXmasSingle is a hit!
It was officially launched via Twitter on Sunday, 4 December and managed to reach #1 in the iTunes Charts later that same day. Not bad, considering the only marketing was done by the 140+ Twitter characters and their family and their friends and YOU . . .
On 9 December, with 1,380 sales of ‘Winter Song’ we jumped into the Irish Charts at #8. A great achievement, but we want to do better!
We even got a mention in Hot Press – now, how cool is that?
