Challenges and Objectives

U Power, established in Italy, sells personal protective equipment shoes. 

With the high level of demand for PPE globally, shoes in particular accounts for 50% of the overall market share. With legislation tightening in the workplace this has created a demand for safety equipment, and an opportunity for U Power to take advantage of this change in law to ensure employees are protected in the workplace.

U Power was an unknown brand in the UK and wanted to drive brand awareness by targeting distributors first and foremost, as well as Men 20-60 in need of safety shoes. U Power want to create a conversation around PPE in the UK market!

Ideas and Implementation

By advertising on ITV, this offered U Power the opportunity to create mass reach and build brand awareness amongst their target audience of Men 20-60.

The campaign ran across almost all of ITV’s portfolio of channels. This included ITV main channel, ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4 using a mixture of 30” and 20” creative spot lengths. This ensured U Power achieved broad reach, as well as reach amongst the target audience Men 20-60 as the campaign ran around sport focused programming on ITV4.
