This remarketing strategy is completely different to the norm. Usually online advertisers use remarketing to re-engage previous users of their website. 3M decided to give users the digital equivalent of a sticky note, fully interactive and customisable; so the banners you see following you around the internet are notes you want to remember, rather than hard sell messages that can often lead to ad fatigue and irritation. Did it sell more Post-It products? I'm not sure. Did it allow potential customers to participate with the campaign, add value and yield positive brand sentiment? I think so.
