Home and car insurance company, Huddle, has today launched a new Australia-wide campaign – the first to include social, digital and TV – to push its simple, more powerful approach. The campaign was filmed in Wellington by The Glue Society, New Zealand.
‘Is this one of those Huddle Insurance ads?’ is a catchphrase which is destined to become synonymous with the brand, sending as it does various characters off on a strange set of insurance-related stories with comic effect.
Since launching in 2016, Huddle has been on a mission to make car, home and travel insurance a hassle-free purchase, simplifying everything (by digitising the entire product from quote to claim) and adding powerful features that people can rely upon.
Says Jason Wilby, co-founder, Huddle: “Insurance is all about customer experience and this ultimately boils down to how easily policies can be managed and claims paid. That’s a complex story from a communications perspective. And we wanted to focus on connecting with customers without overloading them with fine print and detail.”
Says Lachie Brown, growth and communications at Huddle: “Insurance is a long-term relationship and we wanted a creative platform that can develop and withstand the test of time. When we devised this with The Glue Society, our vision was for a simple, powerful campaign that’s flexible enough to run for the duration of our customer relationship, which is something we measure in years.”
Says Pete Baker, Glue Society director: “For a relatively new brand, it is important to stand out for the right reasons. We set out to create a long-term ownable idea for Huddle. Something that can catch on and build into something memorable, ownable, shareable and loved. The ‘Is this one of those Huddle Insurance ads?’ campaign has every chance of catching on. Just like Huddle’s insurance offering.”
