[WATCH] Do a little good and Hollard could refund part of your premium
"A little good makes big change!"
That's the tagline for Hollard Insurance's "ChangeMaker" campaign which promises to give back part of clients' premiums when they volunteer to do good.
The commercial features an animated giant doing good around a city to the beat of a reimagined Michael Jackson classic.
Oresti Patricios picks it as his advertising hero of the week on The Money Show.
Among the things he loves about the ad is the creative execution that makes it "stand out in a crowd" says Patricios, CEO of brand intelligence research company the Ornico Group,
Firstly Bruce, I could see you dancing to Michael Jackson!... I love this big animated giant. We have a whole lot of giants in our own communities and I think's that's what they're trying to achieve.Oresti Patricios, CEO - Ornico Group
Also, there are so many brands that do this CSI ESG (environmental, social and governance), but they kind of do it as an add-on. Their corporate social investment is you go online, pay an extra R2 to be donated to x, y and z.Oresti Patricios, CEO - Ornico Group
Patricios references past Hollard campaigns supporting small businesses, which also don't really advertise products.
Research has found that South Africans really want to do good but don't know how to go about it, Patricios says.
It's a real purpose-driven campaign... that's the whole objective - the better futures that Hollard has. They create these organisational objectives in trying to help people create better futures... Their campaigns don't do any product, it's all about how do we change our lives.Oresti Patricios, CEO - Ornico Group
It's a fascinating strategy. Most insurance seems to be sold nowadays on price... Hollard is just saying 'we're lekker, we love everybody and if you love us you'll come and find us, and then we'll tell you what we've got. We don't need to be grubby about money...'.Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show host
