TV, Digital Opps: Post-It debuts first campaign in three years

Subject: broadcast, digital

Company: 3M Company

Opportunity: Launched the new "Make It Stick" campaign this week.The campaign includes two TV spots and an online documentary touting the advantages of physically writing things down in our increasingly digital world. According to Jeff Hillins, 3M's global business director for the stationary and office supplies division, the campaign marks the start of a "serious shift" in the company's messaging. Unlike previous efforts, which have highlighted Post-Its utility in the process of creativity and self-expression, "this campaign is really focused on achievements."

Along with the messaging shift, Post-It is also shifting its target audience. By placing the focus on achievements and academics, Post-It is looking to capture a younger generation. The campaign also marks the first push from the brand since 2013. Hillins told AdAge that the company looks at its brand strategy in a "three-to-five-year cycle," in order to keep messaging consistent across time and platforms. 

Sellers, you should be reaching out for possible TV and digital dollars now. While this initial push has already debuted, the brand should will likely follow with campaign extensions into next year.
