First Touch

In a category dominated by Goliaths pushing out the same, tired messages, gaining a foothold for newer entrants is especially difficult. Enter Tokio Marine: a relatively young upstart who gave consumers a new reason to take notice. How? By appealing to people’s emotions. By dramatising the ‘First Touch’ – that very first moment when a parent comes in contact with their newborn – Tokio Marine sought to awaken every parent’s protective instincts. These real-life stories truly hit home, with our campaign leading to a 126% increase in product sales.

We Know From Experience Campaign

Even insurers don’t want to talk about insurance, spending their enormous budgets on gimmicky advertising.  We had to breakthrough the noise, and with a budget nearly 10 times less than competitors.  We found a way to differentiate via our insurance expertise. The “We Know From Experience” campaign showed real, unbelievable claims Farmers Insurance has experienced. We brought 30 different claims to life, and gave caution-minded customers a reason to trust that Farmers could help cover them. The position stood out, with the Experience campaign bringing people to Farmers.
