Benson for Beds supports TV ads

LONDON - Benson for Beds is supporting its £1.5m January sales TV campaign with a direct drive.

The three-week activity, created by Wand Agency, spans national and regional press, as well as in-store and point-of-sale material across the brand's 220 outlets, direct mail and door-drop activity.

The press ads will feature in titles including The Sun, The Mirror, The Times, The Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail.

The chain's 30-second TV ad, which broke on Boxing Day, carries the strapline 'A Bensons bed. Once you're in it, you're out of it'. It was also created by Wand Agency, which was appointed to the business last June.
