Services: Wonderfully Creative Campaigns

Dave, the befuddled warehouse operative turned high-viz hero, showcased the power of Conker’s scanning tech and drove super-human results.







The Challenge

Conker was on a mission to amplify their presence in the UK logistics and warehousing markets, particularly with their Wearables solutions.

They were looking for fresh, creative campaigns that drive awareness and generate real results to support their Business Development and Key Account Teams. With a focus on their standout UK-based service, Conker’s aim was to outshine competitors by delivering value that resonates with their audience.

The objectives of this campaign were to:

  • Increase awareness of Conker and their Wearable solutions
  • Generate pipeline for their internal teams to nurture.

The Solution

First, say hello to Dave the confused and constrained warehouse operative.

Worn down by battling the evil of slow processes and inefficient tech, it was only a matter of time before his alter ego, Scan Man - the hero in hi-viz every warehouse needs – was unleashed.

A personification of the real-world benefits the Conker wearables give people, Scan Man was brought to life across five engaging video episodes, each showcasing the tangible benefits of Wearable tech whilst infusing some British wit to stay true to Conker’s brand roots.

This multi-channel campaign was centred around the bespoke video content, with audience expansion and reach cranked up further through multiple, highly targeted streams of email activity, combined paid and organic social media campaigns, and some new-school PR outreach hustle.
