Having recently launched their life insurance product called, Zindagi Plus, Edeilweiss has taken a relatable route to lure audiences to buy life insurance for their family and loved ones and offer financial backup for them following the death of the breadwinner of the family. Commenting on the launch of the ad campaign, the marketing head of Edeilweiss Tokio said that, we wanted to keep it new age and relevant. All our campaigns have stayed away from generating fear in the minds of the consumers. Insurance is a heavy subject, but that doesn't mean the communication needs to be heavy too. Our previous communications have also always been light-hearted and that's the style we've stuck to. The marketing team has decided to split the ad campaign into 2, and the reason behind it according to him is that the TV audience is typically male, between the ages of 30-40 years. They are likely to have young kids and that is the right time to buy a term plan. We'd also like to address the lady of the house, who plays a huge role in influencing the decision of buying protection.
