73,000 unique visitors put 12,000 songs to different places through out Sweden, and shared their soundtracks as check-ins on Facebook as well as other social spheres. Observation and recall was 10% above average campaigns and Telia’s Word of Mouth Index in social spheres increased 166% when we launched the campaign. The campaign surpassed sales goals with 130%.

Creative Execution

We created a web- and mobile application that allowed people to link digital songs to physical places. A campaign website gathered the soundtracks, and all soundtracks were posted on Facebook as check-ins. For instance: John checked in at The State Library with "Enjoy the silence".
Being Sweden’s largest telecom brand, and by creating this location based musical mash-up, we could own the idea of filling the whole country of Sweden with music. And we used the two things Telia provide; the mobile phone network and Spotify’s music-archive, showing that you get access to every track, everywhere.

Sweden’s largest mobile telephone operator, Telia, wants to be closely linked with music. They both sponsor the Swedish qualifications for the Eurovision Song Contest and Sweden’s largest music festival ”Way Out West”. To link the brand more closely to music they joined forces with streaming music service Spotify, giving all new customers free music in the mobile.
Music affects us, it awakens memories of people, events and places. This, combined with the ability to give everyone access to every song, everywhere, sparked a thought: what if every place had a soundtrack?
