Custom Flash Drive for MusicDigital music has rapidly transformed the way people listen to and purchase music. From the days of fans standing in long lines waiting to buy the new album by their favorite artist, to now being able to click a button and instantly download a whole catalog of music, the media musicians use to distribute their music has completely changed as well. Custom USB flash drives have emerged as one of the most efficient and unique ways many musicians can package and sell their music.

Artists like Lady Gaga, the Beatles, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead and Bob Dylan have issued their latest albums or catalogs on custom USB flash drives. The customizability factor and durability, as well as the utilization of new technology, have made USB flash drives a contemporary method for musicians to release their work.



Stand out at the merch table

As opposed to mainstream CDs, USB flash drives can stand out among discs, especially when being distributed to a record producer or entertainment reviewer. In the world of band merchandise, offering recent live performances or latest releases on flash drives at the merchandise table are a brand establishing and eye catching way to get your work to your fans.

The content is not just restricted to music as well, as video footage, demo takes and behind-the-scenes content can also be included as extras on USB flash drives. Some electronic music artists have even included the individual tracks and samples from their music on promotional USB flash drives for fans.

Promote your music through custom packaging

With the huge variety of custom flash drives that can be made, musicians can take advantage of custom packaging that helps them sell their brand. Wristband and card sized flash drives can double as concert tickets or VIP access. In the case of rock band, Queens of the Stone Age, their latest album Like Clockwork was released on an 8GB USB flash drive that doubled as a beer bottle opener.

More traditional formats are possible with flash drive albums, like using a card sized flash drive and packaging it in a traditional CD size case that can fit into any disc collector’s library.

The reusability factor of flash drives makes them more than just a way to get your music to fans. With your band name, logo or album art on the flash drive, it’s an easy way to give your fans a useful everyday tool that doubles as music memorabilia.

Trade Show

Standing Out in a Crowd – The art of a successful trade show depends on how many attendees you can attract to your booth and what type of lasting impression you leave them with. As a trade show exhibitor, the goal is always to find ways to stand out in a crowd and attract attention to your booth and products.

I have done literally hundreds of trade shows and as an experienced exhibitor, we used everything we could to attract attendees: product giveaways, show discounts, food, etc. ….  anything that will get a conversation going about our products.  It’s hard work especially knowing that just one contact could blossom into a gold mine in client purchases.

So what do you need to have an edge on your competition?

A New Novel Technology that Makes a Lasting Impression – Digital Copycat has the perfect newly released trade show product.  A small electronic dual flash drive that now works with both computer and android smartphones. It has 2 connectors on it, one for standard computers and one for android smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy series.  This drive can be branded with a company logo and loaded with the exhibitors promotional videos, brochures, etc.

New Trade Show Flash Drive with Dual Connector for Android Smartphone and Computer

THE NOVELTY makes a lasting impression since it now works with smartphones and regular computers, and has your promotional video or brochure right on the drive.    A Dual Flash Drive like this that no one has seen yet will inspire further conversation and make the lasting impression you need as a trade show exhibitor.

Ultimately, however, final success is measured by how many contacts are made,  how many orders booked(if this was an order writing show) and the impression you left with those attendees. A significant part of that lasting impression will be based on the quality and use-ability of the flash drive.

The Right Drive is a Quality Drive – Unlike many ad specialty companies that sell cups and hats and mugs, Digital Copycat specializes solely in data delivery of optical media and Flash memory.  We  provide tier 1 memory made by Samsung, Toshiba or Micron and specify MLC NAND so you know you are getting the most robust flash drive product.
