Nivea has brilliantly incorporated StickNFind iBeacon technology in its The Protection Ad. Although the ad, which can be found in print magazines, focuses on the need for sunscreen, it also addresses another huge concern when families spend the day at the beach: Having their children run off. To solve this frightening possibility, The Protection Ad provides a detachable, temporary bracelet that is meant to be secured around a child's wrist.

Embedded with a Beacon, parents can keep track of their kids through an accompanying smartphone app. In this way, The Protection Ad actually provides a helpful service that solidifies its initial promotion as well. As written in Adweek, "It's a fun idea that effectively signals the brand's devotion to protecting your offspring." Parents will associate only positive feelings towards Nivea thanks to The Protection Ad.
