Services are nothing without service.
Benj offers an alternative to the typical agency experience.
Forget being sold to by sales reps & senior developers – before junior assistant #3 finally actions your project from a post it note pinned to the ‘Scrum’ board.

After being told time & time again that the Bunkers offering was so complex it required an expensive custom built website, we rolled up our sleeves… & let Shopify do most of the work!
This Shopify eCommerce website sits at the cornerstone of Bunkers PTY LTD’s extensive brand refresh. With a rich 35+ year history of making & selling bunk beds through traditional channels, safe to say Bunkers were a little sceptical on how eCommerce could perform for them.
Initial results are positive to say the least, with online sales exceeding brick & mortar in the 3 months since launch!
The South Australian German Teachers Association was ready for a refreshed website and a more economical platform than their current ‘Membership Software’.
Converting to a WordPress site for the association was an obvious fit. Utilising the market leading MemberPress integration ensured a timely and economic build, without foregoing any functionality SAGTA had with their previous platform. As with all Benj projects, the entire site build was handed across – ensuring SAGTA’s control of their platform now and into the future.
SAGTA’s initial brief was nice and simple with information from the existing site to be transferred and a handful of alternate sites that they enjoyed the feel of. Keeping the development progress open for SAGTA to log in and follow allowed for a transparent build. This simple process ensured this ‘feel’ was headed in the right direction throughout the project.
SEM + Analytics
Bunkers initial SEM performance was highlighted by a CPC immediately +25% below the preceding campaigns.
Project #1 tackled Bunkers existing search campaigns. Results were immediate with the implementation of a new (very extensive) keyword list focussing on ‘long tail’ + tiered bidding systems.
New opportunities have also proved more fruitful than this historical search heavy mix. The introduction of the bunkers.com.au Shopify eCommerce site has enabled a new presence with ‘Shopping’ campaigns. CPC & ROAS figures have already justified a significant shift in budget allowance towards these campaigns.
Core to the ongoing success and growing benefit to the Bunkers business is a streamlined purpose built analytics dashboard. For a time stretched management team, consolidating & curating all relevant data sources into one intelligible & functional report is essential.
The Bunkers Analytical dashboard focuses attention to Revenue, channel performance, demographics, acquisition & keyword data. This customised data set clearly highlights performance of the businesses recent transition into eCommerce & more importantly informs current & future management decisions.
Insights from this automated monthly report now direct current online + marketing energy to where it is most valuable.
The Bunkers brand had a very strong selling proposition when face to face with customers. Faced with the challenge of getting this across to consumers in the digital mediums, they required a solution that would keep consumers engaged & not overwhelmed.
With Bunk Bed purchases truly a whole family activity, whiteboard animation proved the perfect solution – informing & entertaining.
All original storyboard, illustration + animation was done by Benj Digital.
This iteration is our original, with plans currently underway for the new animation to match Bunkers new product range – stay tuned!
