A memostick on the front of an Observer Magazine helped eMusic's brand stand out and drove traffic to their site.
eMusic's aim was to drive traffic to their site and to persuade customers to take a free 14 day subscription to their audio content. They also wanted to raise their brand profile, and to emphasise that they offer a wide range of music suitable for all digital audio devices. A memostick was identified as the ideal solution; the self adhesive sticker was a cost effective, innovative way to make eMusic's message stand out.

The front cover of the Observer Music Monthly (OMM) was the perfect location for eMusic's memostick. OMM is a key magazine for the industry and has a readership of affluent professionals who are passionate about a wide range of music. eMusic chose to test the effectiveness of their campaign using Guardian News and Media's Brand Aid Panel.
Research showed that 70% of Observer readers questioned noticed the ad. 42% OMM readers said they would visit eMusics site as a result of seeing the ad. A quarter of readers said they would stick the memostick elsewhere to keep, thus extending its impactand. 30% said they planned to download songs from it. OMM was perceived as a good fit for eMusic's advertising by 86% of readers.
