Through data mining and qualitative research we unearthed a rich insight - a home move represents the joy of life moving on. It’s a shift from one life stage to another. We saw an opportunity to tap into a rich emotional territory - that moving house is a sign of personal progress. This led to our proposition: “When life moves, make your Rightmove.”
Through emotional storytelling we have imparted the simple but powerful thought that as life changes, our home should change to - encouraging people to make decisions with their heart over their head.
The launch campaign showed families at different pivot points in their lives making their next big move, including the much-loved “Life Steps” TVC starring a beleaguered older man named Graham.
Alongside broadcast comms, we created a content series ‘Moving Stories’ – stories of real people who have made extraordinary moves, the kind that many of us think about and few of us actually make.
Using data-driven research we identified the 5% of people who are most likely to be ‘in-market,’ and targeted them with this content. This innovative way of connecting data and creativity meant that Rightmove saw efficiency increase by 38%.
