Rideshare service platform DiDi has launched its new ‘Do More, Pay Less’ campaign via creative agency OMG! Creative and production company Mr Smith to encourage Australians to get out and do more by paying less with ‘low fare rideshare’.
DiDi launched its rideshare service ‘DiDi Express’ in Australia in 2018 and currently operates in Melbourne, Newcastle and Geelong.
“Switching to DiDi’s affordable rideshare service can save passengers hundreds of dollars a year. DiDi’s competitive standard pricing gives passengers a ridesharing alternative that enables them to head out more often and enjoy everything life has to offer,” says Douglas Toy, DiDi Australia’s Head of Marketing.
“It’s exciting to launch DiDi in Australia as the brand offers great value to both passengers and drivers. If your next driver is uber-happy, it’s probably because they’re driving with DiDi and therefore keeping 94.5% of every fare, far more than the industry average.”
Says Peter Murphy, executive creative director, OMG: “Life is what people are interested in and rideshare is how they get there. It’s an interesting balance. DiDi is the delivery mechanism for passengers which provides a better experience as drivers earn more.”
OMG Managing Partner, Ed Brice added: “We loved the challenge. Nobody says I’m getting a ‘rideshare’ as DiDi’s competitor is vernacular for the category. By bringing the concept of ‘Do More’ as you ‘Pay Less’ thanks to low-fare rideshare, we hope in six months people switch and say ‘I’ll get a DiDi’.”
The campaign will feature across social media, YouTube, OOH, Radio and digital TV. Edelman is leading DiDi’s earned and paid PR campaigns, further bringing to life the ‘do more, pay less’ mindset through social, influencer and media partnerships.
