Hyundai has launched its Take a Load Off campaign today to support SMEs through custom advertising packages.
From bushfires to a world-wide pandemic, the economic and social impact has hit Australians hard. Among the worst affected are small business owners, who are feeling the strain of staying open in these tough times.
Recognising the importance of supporting SMEs, Hyundai has teamed up with media agency Hearts & Science and Australia’s largest youth-focused publisher Pedestrian Group to launch its Take a Load Off campaign today. The competition will offer three winning businesses a bespoke advertising package valued at $52,000 each. By sharing the advertising budget for its commercial van iLoad, Hyundai is offering small businesses the same opportunity to promote themselves during this difficult period.
The advertising pack will include a bespoke video piece and written editorial showcasing how the business is doing things differently, supported by a custom display package. The campaign will be amplified via the Pedestrian Group network, social media and outreach efforts within Hyundai’s dealership networks.
Hyundai Motor Company Australia marketing director, Kevin Goult, commented: “COVID-19 is having a major effect on all businesses, but particularly the small business owner-operated. We want to play our part in keeping the local businesses open and the wheels turning. The Hyundai iLoad is a popular vehicle for SMEs; we would like to see these small businesses get ‘back to normal – but better’, when we eventually come out of this pandemic.”
Advertising support will be especially valuable at a time when the Australian Securities and Investments Commission reported a staggering 11.3% increase in the number of companies entering external administration compared to last year.
Hearts & Science business director, Gail Halbert, added: “We are excited to bring to life this campaign with Pedestrian Group, which will not only directly impact three small businesses that may have had it tough recently, but also put a spotlight on the importance of Australians supporting their amazing local businesses.”
