Aviva What's Your Big Plan

Aviva Life Insurance

Adfactors PR Pvt. Ltd.

Aviva, since 2009, has been focusing on child education. After achieving absolute leadership in this space, the insurer, in 2012, decided to extend the brand proposition from child education to child protection. This involved just not securing the overall wellbeing of the child but also fulfilling her aspirations. Keeping this in mind, Aviva developed a BTL campaign ‘What’s your big plan’, highlighting this ‘aspiration’ aspect to reach out to young parents as prospective customers.

The strategy was to make the ‘What’s your big plan’ campaign the talk of the town and implement a high decibel media campaign involving print, TV, and Internet – leading up to the grand finale event.

Aviva received close to 1 lakh entries for the contest. It generated more than 450 impressions in the print and electronic media. Eikona, a third party media audit firm, ranked Aviva number one in terms of share of voice for November 2013.
