COMMON SENSE TO THE RESCUE
Disrupting passive insurance renewal behaviour and challenging the legacy brands
GET CONSUMERS THINKING DIFFERENTLY ABOUT WHO THEY SIGN WITH AND TO CONSIDER GREEN FLAG AS AN ALTERNATIVE.
Most people tend to choose a road-side assistance company and stick with them, regardless of rises in cost or lapses in performance.
IMPROVE PERCEPTION OF GREEN FLAG AND DISRUPT PERCEPTIONS OF THE AA AND RAC BY HIGHLIGHTING THEIR AREAS OF WEAKNESS.
Show that Green Flag offer the same quality as the competition, but for less.
Create clear visual and tonal distance from the other companies in the sector. This meant dispensing of the category tropes like branded vans with smiling mechanics and presenting something far more challenging, fresh and energetic.
The idea positioned Green Flag as the road-side assistance company that was here to rescue people from the shortcomings of their competitors. We wanted to jolt customers of competitors out of autopilot renewals by highlighting that Green Flag offers a ‘common sense’ alternative. Starting with TV, we spread our message far and wide across radio and paid social channels.
