A list of things to do when T-ara has a comeback!
Buying & Streaming
• DOWNLOAD DIGITAL SINGLE/ALBUM
Streaming on MelOn counts towards the digital charts, however it is done in a specific way. Only one play per hour is counted towards the MelOn charts, however there is no limit for the Gaon chart, which takes from MelOn and others.
The best way to tackle this: create a playlist, add T-ara’s currently promoted title track 10-15 times, add any remaining songs once. The total play time should be one hour or a little more . Depending upon the number of songs in the album and their length, adjust the number of times to add the title track as needed. Let the playlist play continuously; DO NOT alter any settings, lower the volume or scroll through the play.
This way, one play of the title track will be counted towards MelOn while the rest will be counted towards Gaon. When the playlist finishes and an hour has passed, it will start over automatically. Learn how to create a playlist here.
If the music is of any disturbance to your work, on PC, turn off your speakers or turn down the MelOn software’s volume via the Audio Mixer.
• PHYSICAL ALBUM
Buy T-ara’s album only from those stores that are counted towards Hanteo! Some choices are: YesAsia, GMarket, Synnara, KTown4u, Kpoptown, Kpopmart, Applemusic. From any other stores, search for the Hanteo badge or read through the shop’s FAQ to confirm before purchasing an album.
Searching rankings on Naver, Nate, Daum and other portals help towards SNS points. Additionally on Youtube and Twitter as well. Click the below links to enter the searches queries. (Naver requires an account, registration is available in English.)
For Twitter, tag 티아라 and their currently promoted title track in your tweets. If the official title is in hangul, stick with hangul and do not use a translated title. If in English, use English.
In the case of solo promotions, use the member’s name (only in hangul) in the search queries and social media: 보람 (Boram), 큐리 (Qri), 소연 (Soyeon), 은정 (Eunjung), 효민 (Hyomin), 지연 (Jiyeon).
Music Video Views
Watch T-ara’s music videos ONLY ON OFFICIAL CHANNELS (MBK Entertainment, 1TheK, etc.)
To help increase T-ara’s YouTube views, create a public playlist, add the music video and several other videos such as the teaser, there just needs to be more than one and none repeated. You may use our readily available playlist as well: http://bit.ly/diademplaylist
Use a different browser or Incognito mode (but do not log into your account) and play the playlist on repeat. If you’re using a different browser, clear your history/cookies after every 30 minutes. For Incognito mode, close it completely and open it again.
Some things to note, you must watch the entire video and do not mute the video (if necessary, turn off your speakers, plug in headphones or mute your browser.) It is very helpful to share the video and receive clicks; share the video as much as possible!
If you have any questions or concerns, send a tweet to @tiaradiadem or email us.
