NRMA Insurance debuts,’Help, Like No One Else’ campaign created by The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive.
The campaign comes after NRMA’s parent company IAG announced that it had awarded its $25 million annual media spend to IPG’s Initiative. After previously being with GroupM for a decade.
The campaign aims to showcase the depth of experience NRMA Insurance assessors have when they help a customer during a claim.
Directed by Daniel Kaufman, the campaign film follows Judi, who has been an NRMA assessor for 32 years, as she journeys through an insurance claim while recalling her experiences on the job.
The integrated campaign extends through broadcast, cinema, OOH, press and radio, telling the stories of other dedicated NRMA Insurance employees who help its customers each day.
NRMA Insurance chief marketing officer, Brent Smart, said: “Since I joined the company, I’ve heard incredible stories of how our people help.
“The challenge is how to tell those incredible stories in a way that doesn’t feel like just another testimonial employee ad.
“We found a way creatively to honour our incredible people and the way they help our customers.”
The Monkeys creative director Barbara Humphries, said: “While you can never prepare for how you’ll react when the unexpected happens, NRMA Insurance assessors spend their whole lives preparing to help you at that moment.
“Hearing Judi talk about many years on the job, experiencing some of Australia’s worst moments, we were moved by the courage, empathy and dedication that sets her and her team apart. We were determined to tell that story.”
