Custom Sticky Notes: Burt’s Bees Thinks Outside The Box

Updated September, 2018

When you think of soft skin, custom sticky notes don’t typically come to mind. But for Burt’s Bees, a company that offers earth-friendly natural skin and beauty products, promotional sticky notes made for one smooth marketing campaign.

Custom Sticky Notes Are A Creative Way To Express Your Message

To promote its Intense Hydration line of skin care products, the company crafted an interactive billboard made of promotional sticky notes featuring a $3-off coupon. The billboard, stationed along a bustling street in Minneapolis, initially showed a woman with dry skin made up of thousands of the promotional sticky notes. The text read: “Does your skin feel dry and flaky?”

As people passed by and grabbed the sticky-note coupons an image of the same model with a much softer, more hydrated appearance was revealed. The new message: “Introducing Intense Hydration. The natural solution for dry skin.”

What a clever way to simulate a before and after, and provide consumers with an incentive to try the product. Burt’s Bees did an amazing job engaging the public with its offer. It no doubt got people talking about the brand—and it all started with the humble promotional sticky note.

Since this billboard in 2012, Burt’s Bees has launched many campaigns. Click here to view more.
