Viva Energy Australia, the licensee of the Shell brand in Australia, is set to launch a new national campaign for the company’s flagship fuel brand, Shell V-Power.
Shell V-Power is already recognised as one of the strongest premium fuel brands in the country, however this year creative agency Sense was tasked with creating a campaign that would develop a deeper emotional connection with the brand taking into account current trends and recent events impacting on local travel.
Now more than ever, thousands of Australians are taking to the roads for domestic trips and holidays and the opportunity was ripe for a campaign that showcases the important role premium fuels can play in making motorists feel more confident and protected on their journey. Customer research undertaken to develop the campaign supported the insight that this re-assurance was a key benefit sought by drivers for their cars and their passengers, and of course there is no better brand than Shell V-Power to carry that message.
“The Shell V-Power race team already excels in motorsports and our association highlights the product’s performance benefits,” explains Andrew Egan, General Manager – Marketing at Viva Energy Australia, “But motor racing is sharply focused on car enthusiasts and motorsport fans, and we wanted to reach a wider audience with this campaign, explain the benefits of using a premium fuel and get more people to consider using Shell V-Power in their car.”
David Whiteside, Strategic Director at Sense, explains the inspiration behind the concept. “More than ever, fuel facilitates driving holidays and all the feelings of excitement and freedom that come with that. This is especially relevant given the stay-at-home and travel restrictions we’ve all endured during COVID-19.”
“Shell V-Power is a high-quality product that can help improve the performance of most modern cars, and make your driving holiday more enjoyable,” explains Andrew. “Our hope is that by aligning the quality of the product and the quality of people’s experiences when using it, customers will better understand the importance of Shell V-Power’s benefits, and eventually make it an everyday purchase.
“We hope the campaign makes people stop and think about the role Shell V-Power plays in facilitating the joy of driving. That would be a great outcome.”
Appearing in broadcast, outdoor and digital media, as well as point-of-sale, the campaign launches nationally on television Sunday 28 March 2021.
