5 Cool Sticker Marketing Campaigns You Haven't Seen Yet

March 20, 2014

Stickers are powerful marketing tools, especially when deployed for “surprise and delight” marketing. Surprise and delight marketing is the practice of placing marketing tools – here, stickers – in unusual, expected places in a humorous, entertaining, and/or memorable way. For your inspiration, here are five cool sticker marketing campaigns you (probably) haven’t seen yet.

1. Riviera Prive Hotel

To promote its private beach, bar and pool area, the Riviera Hotel in Lebanon affixed these large-format stickers to restroom mirrors at trendy night clubs throughout Beirut. The idea was that patrons could be seen by the hottest people on the beach by visiting Prive, evident by the giant mirrored “sunglasses” in the ads.

2.  Science World’s Quirky Facts

These stickers were pinned on trees to make it look as though they had been chewed  through by beavers; at the end of the trees is another sticker that says a single beaver can cut down 200 trees each year. The stickers were part of a larger, comprehensive campaign sought to promote Science World, a nonprofit British-Columbia science and technology organization.
