Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
IKEA has beautiful furniture that can be self-assembled. But not everyone enjoys assembling furniture. That’s why IKEA offers a service that does this in a professional and affordable way. The task was to advertise the IKEA Assembly Service with an in-store idea. The target group was customers who were buying furniture at IKEA at that very moment.
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
As a democratic brand, IKEA treats all people with the same level of respect. But how do you communicate the benefits of the IKEA Assembly Service, which does the furniture assembly professionally, without making some people feel bad about their lack of do-it-yourself skills?
Simple: we looked at the problem from a different perspective and swiftly turned a lack of do-it-yourself skills when it comes to assembling furniture into artistic talent! This let us communicate our message with a twinkle in the eye rather than by pointing a lecturing finger - which is exactly the brand philosophy behind IKEA.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
We surprised customers with Furniture Art at IKEA. To do so, we created an avant-garde in-store film. There we showed fascinating sculptures, which were actually wrongly-assembled furniture! If someone has other talents than assembling IKEA furniture properly, the Assembly Service will gladly help out next time.
Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
The in-store film was an important part of an integrated direct campaign for the IKEA Assembly Service, which was very successful. A review of bookings showed that 2.173 orders were made directly after the campaign. That’s three times as much as in an average month of the quarter before and represents a growth of 300%.
The Direct marketing titled FURNITURE ART was done by Grabarz + Partner advertising agency for product: IKEA (brand: IKEA) in Germany. It was released in the Jan 2010.
