The Client’s Goal

Festool, a manufacturer of premium tools and accessories geared toward professional woodworkers and craftsmen, needed to successfully launch – and sustain interest – for its new cordless tool platform.


  • To raise awareness among target audiences of Festool’s new cordless tool line.
  • To transform target audience members from being brand aware to being brand engaged.
  • To deliver strong brand impressions.
  • To drive interest and sales of the cordless line among Festool specialty dealers.


  • An earned media campaign targeting industry trade publications that included press release development and distribution, media pitching, tracking and ROI reporting.
  • Coordinated interviews with trade publications for Festool executives to speak about the new cordless line.
  • An organic influencer campaign that included unboxing videos and tool reviews.
  • A paid media campaign that included a six-figure advertising plan with placements in target publications and with select influencers.
  • A seed tool campaign in which select cordless tools were sent to influencers to encourage organic or paid coverage on social media.
  • Developed messaging on how to talk about the new cordless line that helped inform language used in talking points, press releases and ad copy.

The Impact

  • The campaign accomplished 238% of goal with over 70 million impressions, and Festool reached sales targets.
