Learn How! is to launch a substantial field-marketing offensive on the 19th September to recruit members to its rewards-based website. Pigsback’s significant investment in this unusual marketing strategy aims to further increase the return on investment for Pigsback’s brand partners and advertisers.

Jo Malvern,’s UK Marketing Director, explains why Pigsback’s unique offline strategy is so effective at online customer acquisition: “Field marketing teams are able to connect with the consumer: explaining the Pigsback proposition and most importantly, actively representing Pigsback’s values of quality, trust and fun. It provides a personal touchpoint that is just not possible with traditional recruitment techniques.”

Pigsback, which boasts high-profile partners such as Blockbuster, eBay and, ran trial recruitment campaigns in London, earlier this year. Results established that morning commuters are most likely to sign-up online.

Malvern continues: “It’s about reaching the right type of consumer at the optimum point of conversion. The trials informed our planning, focusing our efforts on the time of day and locations that would reach our target demographic and deliver the best results. Brand awareness coupled with a physical calling card, branded stress pigs, really grab attention. Intrigued by our brand, commuters want to find out more, and as they log-on to computers for their day at work, they are inspired to visit our site and sign-up.”

Field marketing specialists, Tribe, will manage the nationwide programme targeting Pigsback’s core demographic of B/C1 females, aged 25-35. Teams dressed in ‘Curly’ pig suits and branded costumes will distribute one million branded stress pigs by the end of the year.

Tribe Operations Director, Michelle Lombardi, says: “Tribe’s brand warriors are highly experienced at engaging consumers’ interest. Our aim is to increase the awareness of Pigsback in the UK and present the company as a unique proposition to busy but price- and brand-conscious consumers.”

The campaign launches at tube and railway stations across London and the South East and at large office complexes and city worker conurbations in other cities throughout the UK , such as Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield.

The recruitment drive is the core part of a wider recruitment strategy that includes press and online activity.
