UK ARMY CENSUS

UK ARMYs! Please fill out this census and spread it to all the UK ARMYs you know on all socials. It will only take you a minute!

The goal of this census is to get an approximate figure of how many ARMYs there are in the UK. This will help us better plan forward for comeback goals for BTS in the UK so that we can get BTS on the top of our charts so it's really important!

Results - October 2020

The census is still open for UK ARMYs to fill out, but we have gathered and presented the results that have been collected so far below, so we can use this information to prepare UK ARMYs for the upcoming comeback.

Age & location of UK ARMYs

Social media platforms used by UK ARMYs for BTS content

UK fanbases UK ARMYs are aware of

We could improve a little on getting UK ARMYs more engaged with BTS Radio UK since the work they do is so vital.

We could improve awareness of Funds For BTS UK a lot so we can help fund more UK ARMYs so please spread the word!

@BTSRadioUK @BTSUKUNITE @BANGTANUK @FundsForBTS_UK

UK fanbase projects UK ARMYs are aware of
These are the UK fanbase projects you are aware of.

The BTS UK Carrd is a goldmine of info for UK ARMYs to buy, stream & request BTS music properly, so it’s vital that we increase awareness of this. Please share it & make sure to go through it before CB.

Music platforms from which UK ARMYs have purchased
We need to increase our Amazon & Tidal music sales a LOT if we are to have any chance of achieving our goals for BE. Google Play is now closed, which makes it more vital for us to buy on other platforms. Guides about how to do this are here.

Retailers from which UK ARMYs have purchased physical albums
UK ARMYs, make sure you buy from UK chart-approved retailers (purple) and not from non-UK chart approved retailers (red) as these won’t count & will hinder us achieving our UK goals for BTS.

Platforms on which UK ARMYs have streamed
There is a decent % ARMYs streaming on YouTube & Spotify. But not many ARMYs are streaming on all the other platforms. Streaming on those could really boost BTS’ chart position.

Sign up here & use them for BE!

UK ARMY suggestions

This is a summary of some of the suggestions we got from the UK ARMY census & our responses.

1) Suggestion: We need to make the UK chart rules more known as a lot of people assume it’s the same as the US.
Answer: All of your UK bases have been promoting the UK chart rules consistently through regular posts & polls and they are all in the BTS UK Carrd. We will continue to do this in the run up to and during the next comeback.

2) Suggestion: UK ARMYs need to focus on longevity. So please come up with weekly goals instead of just having 24 hour goals.
Answer: Our comeback goals video and infographics all contain information about longevity. For BE our aim is to keep the lead single in the charts for 15 weeks and the album for 25 weeks. We have been doing this for Dynamite also & are still promoting it and have held parties for it 9 weeks after release. See here for more info for BE’s goals

3) Suggestion: More streaming parties please and with maybe more frequent/longer countdowns as I always seem to miss the party because I wasn’t aware it was going on but I follow a lot of UK fan accounts on Twitter.
Answer: Your UK fanbases will be holding a full 2 weeks of streaming parties for BE and we will be posting regular reminders. Please have your notifications on so you don’t miss the parties.

4) Suggestion: Is it possible to gather and track more stats on weekly/daily sales and streaming (I know we have stats on radio play). Compare this to other acts in the charts. Maybe this information would help to achieve or set goals.
Answer: This would certainly be very useful! Your UK fanbases have been gathering and posting stats for all UK charts for Dynamite and will endeavour to do this for BE also. However, the Official Charts Company doesn’t always release detailed information like numbers of pure sales vs streams, etc. and not every platform releases its streaming figures so there is a limit as to exactly how much data we can collect and present.

UK Charts

In order to reach our goals, we need to understand how the UK charts work and we need to buy & stream correctly for them, as each country's charts has its own rules.

We also need to utilise ALL buying & streaming platforms and get familiar with platforms we haven't used before to maximise sales & streams.

10 STREAM RULE

In the UK, only 10 streams per day per account will count towards charts. Although not stated in the OCC rulebook, this rule has made its way into press releases on authority of OCC and was confirmed in an email by OCC when asked about these press releases (see below). Therefore, you will need to switch account or streaming platform if you wish your streams to count, after streaming a song 10 times.

10 streams per streaming account per day relates to the UK charts. After this, the streams don't count towards the UK but WILL count for global charts.

How To Purchase Digital Music

This section will show you how to purchase music from all platforms:
iTunes
Amazon
Tidal
Qobuz
7digital
Coldplay UK Store - My Universe
BTS UK Store - no longer active

Even if you haven't bought on a certain platform before, be open to exploring them as they are all very simple to purchase on, even for newbies.

Buying on all platforms will boost single/albums sales, and ultimately help us achieve our goals for BTS on the UK charts.

iTunes

You can purchase from the iTunes app if you have an iOS device. If you are an Android user, you can still buy from iTunes desktop version on a PC.

Buying from iTunes on iPhone
Make sure you are searching for the music in the iTunes Store app where you can purchase the songs, not the Apple Music app which is for streaming only.

When buying albums, be sure to buy the lead single/title track FIRST & then complete the album as a whole after, in order to count for the UK singles & albums charts.

Don’t buy all the tracks individually & don’t buy the album before purchasing the title track first.

Buying from iTunes on a PC
You can buy from iTunes desktop on a PC. If you don’t already have iTunes setup, follow these guides:
Install iTunes on PC
Setup iTunes account
Setup iTunes account on Apple website rather than through iTunes

When you are using iTunes desktop, ensure that the 'iTunes Store' option is visible on the menu and that you are searching for music in iTunes, where you can purchase, and not Apple music which is for streaming only.

When buying albums, be sure to buy the lead single/title track FIRST & then complete the album as a whole after, in order to count for the UK singles & albums charts.

Don’t buy all the tracks individually & don’t buy the album before purchasing the title track first.

Buying from another iTunes account
If someone else is buying the same single on their own account but on the same device, you will need to delete the single from your iTunes library and log out of your iTunes account.

Then once logged back in with another iTunes account, the single can be purchased again from the iTunes store.

If you are buying on multiple accounts but with the same payment method, try to space your purchases out.

Guide on how to delete single from iTunes on PC
Guide on how to delete single from iTunes on phone

Payment methods on iTunes

The screenshots below show you how to do this on your phone.

The screenshots below show you how to add a payment method to iTunes on your PC.

Amazon

You do not need a special Amazon music account/app to purchase music from Amazon. Just your normal Amazon account is needed.

The Amazon shopping app will sometimes state that ‘digital music is not available for purchase from this device’. You can still purchase from your phone but on Amazon in your phone’s internet browser instead of the Amazon app (see screenshots below).

-If you wish to buy more, you can make more accounts and buy on those
-Try to use different payment methods for each account

Your UK fanbases will post links at comeback time to singles/albums so that should take you directly where you need to go to purchase.

Buying from Amazon on a phone
Buy the lead single FIRST & then complete the album as whole after to count for UK charts.

Buying from Amazon on a PC
Log onto the Amazon UK website with your normal Amazon account. Buy the lead single FIRST & then complete the album as whole after to count for UK charts.
