Overview of this campaign

Strengthen Biltema’s position «Much More Than Just Cars» and increase sales in categories house, home and leisure.

Increase the number of users on Biltemas website, and attract more female and younger customers. 

Through tailor-made educational and inspiring native content, we want to teach new customer segments to shop at Biltema.

In the spring of 2020 Norway shut down as a consequence of Covid-19, and suddenly the public had to get used to a new existence - at home. This gave us a unique opportunity to communicate Biltemas enormously broad product line. Schibsted Partnerstudio created a series of articles focusing on as many as possible of these products, aiming to meet this new Norwegian everyday life and all its needs.

The articles were distributed on via, with newsroom speed, and in line with a rapidly changing society. Continuous dialogue with Biltema throughout the campaign was very important: Together we could have an idea for an article, and be live in just a couple of days.

We measured the effects of this continuously with every publication, and made necessary adjustments as we went along. We also had access to Biltema’s own data on website traffic and sales, and utilized this actively to optimize. Demographic statistics were used to measure how well we were connecting with the groups we wanted.
