3M Offers Web Stickies

3M this week announced Post-it Software Notes for Internet Designers, Professional Version, featuring the ability to add animation and sound to notes, and even personalize the notes for individual site visitors.

Post-it Software Notes for Internet Designers, Professional Version enables developers and marketers to "stick" a digital Post-it Note on their Web sites. Visitors can then drag the note off the Web page to their computer desktop. Once the note is on the desktop, it serves as a link back to the site.

By using AVI files, The Professional Version enables developers to incorporate animation and sound into their Post-it Software Notes. This allows them to create "play" and "stop" buttons that enables the visitor to control the animation.

This new release of Post-it Software Notes also has the capacity to generate notes specifically for each visitor. One use for this would be when a visitor purchases a product from a Web site. Instead of referring the visitor to a separate page that contains order information and customer service number, all of the details can be placed on a Post-it Software Note. In order to view Post-it Software Notes on a Web site, visitors much install a browser plug-in.

A free 30-day demo is available for both the Standard and Professional Versions, and may be downloaded from the 3M Post-it Software Notes page. The Professional Version sells for a retail price of $300 per Web site, while the standard version is $99 per Web site.
