Client: Hendy Group Year: 2014
We were asked to create 30-second ads to broadcast through Sky’s AdSmart platform to encourage more customers to visit their dealerships to test drive new car ranges across all five franchises (Ford, Honda, Kia, Mazda and MG), maintaining the simple contemporary style we used for their first two TV adverts.
The 6-week campaign began in July, giving the campaign enough time to build brand awareness and customer interest before the new car registration rush in September.
Cars sold against budget
We worked closely with the Hendy Group to analyse their customer profiles by brand to ensure that we were targeting the correct customer demographics. Together we decided to create two versions of the advert, for Ford and Honda, both of which contained a group awareness message plus tactical messages to appeal to the brands’ target audiences.
We have entered the advert into the 2015 AM Awards: ‘Best use of Television and/or video’ category, hoping that the Hendy Group’s iconic use of the Sky AdSmart platform will grant them first place at this year’s ceremony which will be taking place on 19th February at the ICC, Birmingham.
We are pleased to note that Sky and AM Online supported the campaign on their websites. You can read the full article and case study by clicking the links below:
