"We're in the business of crafting great sound and supporting our consumers' love for great music," said Blair Tripodi, Chief Marketing Officer, Polk. "And we want to cultivate and spread that sentiment. It's only natural to get our users to help make that happen."
The site is accessible by computer, tablet or smart phone, and allows users to upload their music "love story" by video or photo-text pairing directly. The user-generated content is then pushed live and shareable across Facebook, Twitter (hashtag #LoveMusic), Google+ and Pinterest. If logged in to the site via Facebook, users can "Like" the content without leaving the microsite. Users who upload content will be entered to win a pair of Polk UltraFocus™ 8000 Active Noise Canceling Headphones.
Music fans will see their uploaded content published among other Polk fans as well as select Polk-sponsored athletes such as disc jockey and Major League Lacrosse superstar Paul Rabil, ultra-marathon record holder Josh Cox and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and Super Bowl XLVII champion Torrey Smith.
In addition to its new line of UltraFit™ sports headphones collection and the UltraFocus™ noise cancelation series headphones, Polk will be launching several new in-home and personal listening products in spring 2013. To view The Love Music Project microsite, visit www.polkaudio.com/love-music.
