The psychology of why people respond to stickers

Stickers are one of the most underrated marketing tools out there. We might think of them as cool accessories, but not marketing powerhouses, right?

Well, not quite. Stickers can be a surprisingly effective marketing tool. They’re cheap, cheerful, and can be used to convey a message or evoke an emotion very easily. And why do people respond to stickers so positively? Let’s take a look at the psychology behind this fun and popular marketing tool:

  1. How stickers are used to create an emotional response

People respond positively to stickers because they are not seen as just another advertising tool. Instead, we cherish stickers as a gift. This means customers are much more receptive to the messages displayed on your stickers.

On top of that, stickers evoke all the positive emotional responses gifts do. This process is called the rule of reciprocity: when somebody does us a favour, we want to return it. By giving away free stickers, businesses activate the rule of reciprocity and encourage customers to return the favour. This can lead to increased brand awareness and loyalty, as customers feel appreciated and supported by the business.

The stickers to use to handout are custom vinyl stickers. These are versatile and can be printed onto in many different colours. They are also waterproof, which allows customers to apply them to various surfaces.

  1. Why people stick to stickers

People love stickers because they are fun and easy to use. They can convey a message quickly and easily, which makes them ideal for showing support for a cause or product, and they also make a great way to show solidarity with others who have the same interests.

Custom stickers are a badge of honour or a sign of belonging, and people often feel appreciated and supported when they receive them. This is why stickers are such an effective marketing tool.
