FWD Launched “This is How Insurance Works Today” Campaign

Demonstrating how insurance services should be with the first viral video attracted over 1 million views in just 2 days

Hong Kong, 8 July 2016 ─ FWD Hong Kong launched “This is How Insurance Works Today” campaign to demonstrate how insurance services should really be in these days.

Paul Tse, Chief Marketing Officer of FWD Hong Kong & Macau said, "FWD is a challenger insurance brand that seeks to continuously innovate. We believe insurance should be instantly and easily accessible, not just in its coverage but also the services it provides. Through the campaign, we want to demonstrate how insurance services should elevate customer experience and shorten waiting time in such as application, policy enquiries, and claims, while vividly displaying FWD’s corporate value of daring to be different.”

“We challenge the traditional clichés of the insurance industry. To deliver our key messages in an untraditional and fun manner that is relevant to our audience, we have collaborated with “Lam Cheng Chit Chat”, a comedy duo formed by talented artists Andrew Lam and Ronald Cheng. Together we were able to inspire each other and created refreshing and humorous contents for our insurance service videos.” Paul added.

The series of insurance service videos have been scheduled to broadcast on TV, online and social media. In just 2 days after launch, the first viral video featuring FWD 24-hour Service Hotline and FWD Live Chat (https://youtu.be/fGAWKpiM1Q8) has attracted over 1 million views with active sharing by audience online. Two other videos featuring FWD Claims Ambassadors and FWD Insurance Solutions Centres will be out on 11th and 18th July respectively. Adding to the excitement, Lam Cheng Chit Chat will have live chats with audience on Facebook starting from 13th July. Stay tuned for details on campaign page https://www.fwd.com.hk/en/service/!
