We tapped into that black and orange nostalgic vein by highlighting innovations on a 100-year interactive timeline; we showing how far the brand has come thanks to its consistent values; and we highlighted new products and innovation that proved it, backed up by the voices of Black and Decker evangelists. To build on engagement, we included a Share Your Story section and since it was a family site, kids (and moms and dads) returned multiple times to challenge the Dustbuster Derby.
Recharge Your Yard launched an entire line of yard equipment powered by 20V interchangeable batteries.

Fans got involved with a “Recharge Your Life” Sweeps, sharing and liking hundreds of thousands of pieces of content.
