The Business Challenge
With numerous challenger brands and e-tailers coming into the bed market, Bensons for Beds needed to stay ahead of the game. Kazoo was tasked with ensuring it was positioned as the UK's leading expert in 'sleepwellness' and the consumer choice for advice into getting a good nights' sleep. Bensons wanted a strong share of voice during National Sleep Month.
The Kazoo Solution
Working with leading sleep physiologist Stephanie Romiszewski we developed a psychological and physiological report into the importance of sleep on the human body.
The results were then divided into three tailored angles – a state of the nation sleep report for national news desks, a psychological report on the stigma around fatigue and mental health for national health / feature writers and the physiological effect of sleep on the body which was used to target consumer lifestyle and broadcast media.
A series of sleep tips were also produced and used across Bensons website and social channels.
Sleep training for staff ensured strong employee engagement.
The Business Impact
The campaign achieved a 52% SOV over competitor brands throughout National Sleep Month
25% increase in-store footfall
We delivered an ROI of 8:1 and 0.0006p cost per thousand
