Swann Insurance launches ‘Inconvenience Stores’ in new campaign via CHE Proximity


swann_TVC (1).jpgAs the specialists in helping motorcyclists get out on the road, Swann Insurance is giving them even more reasons to ride in a new campaign from CHE Proximity.

Turning an everyday errand into an epic journey, a series of Swann ‘Inconvenience Stores’ are launching in remote locations, at the end of some of Australia’s best motorcycle rides. Stocked with ‘Inconvenient Products’ including milk, chocolate and toilet paper, what used to be a quick trip to the shops, is now a reason for riders to get on their bikes and open the throttle.

swann_TVC 2 (1).jpgLaunching on TV, the campaign encourages riders to pick up the milk by finding their furthest store on Google maps. The film is supported by social, PR, a range of riders pledging to get the milk, outdoor that informs riders how far the next store is, and a line of inconvenient products that double as a 10% off policy with Swann Insurance.

Says Rita Ibrahim, marketing manager – Swann Insurance: “We’ve found that many Aussies have the best intentions when it Swann_ride (1).jpgcomes to riding, but life often gets in a way. Now they have a new reason to get out on the open road”.

Says Ant White, executive creative director, CHE Proximity “It took a client with a great understanding of their customer to trust that creating milk and dunny paper, then stocking them on some of Australia’s best rides would get the attention of motorbike riders.”

The products will be stocked in fridges and shelves around Australia for the next two months.

“Milk isn’t obviously a long-standing campaign. It’s a fun way to remind riders to get on their bikes. When the milk runs dry, we’ll have to come up with another reason to ride.”
