Mortgage broker, Aussie, has launched a new and timely national advertising campaign that not only focuses on the significance of our homes during isolation, but also the importance of having the right home loan for right now.
The campaign is positive, feels personal and human, and celebrates everything home means to so many Australians, especially in recent times. It will air across Free to Air TV, Catch up TV, YouTube, Social Media, Radio, Spotify, and Podcasts.
The 30 and 15-second TVCs showcase a montage of Australian families who are working, cooking, watching movies, and spending time with loved ones – as a life lived, and enjoyed, at home. As the TVC comes to a close, Aussie Brokers on video chat begin to fill the screen reminding customers to speak to Aussie, to make sure their current home loan is the right loan for right now.
Aussie’s Head of Marketing, Sascha Hunt said: “Home is at the heart of this campaign. Since we are all spending more time in our homes, Aussie celebrates everything that a ‘home’ means to many Australians. It might just be four walls and four letters, but to our customers it’s everything.”
The campaign also recognises that along with our homes now meaning more than ever, there are many factors that have changed that could impact Australians’ finances, and whether their home loans are still right for their current situation.
Hunt said, “Importantly, now may be an ideal time for customers to review their home loan options and chat to an Aussie Broker.”
The creative force behind the advertising campaign is Aussie’s creative agency CHE Proximity.
Executive Creative Director at CHE Proximity, Wesley Hawes said: “As well as all the fear and uncertainty out there, we’ve also been in lockdown, stuck inside our homes for nearly two months now. We wanted to reframe this notion and make people think positively about their home and the amazing things they are doing in them. It’s a reassuring message from Aussie, who have an army of brokers to help provide clarity and help in the time when home, and having the right home loan, is more important than ever.”
Clinton Duncan, Brand Planning Director added, “Australians are incredibly proud and passionate about their homes, that will never change. This work taps into this enduring and positive truth, while ensuring relevance for the questions and concerns we all have right now. Aussie brokers are available to make sense of the circumstances and make sure you understand all of your options”
The inspiration for the Home campaign comes from Aussie’s customer data and insights, which shows customers are increasingly considering their financial circumstances during COVID-19 and are enquiring about whether they should review their existing home loan, while interest rates are at a historical lows.
