PRWeek UK Awards Winners 2016: Best Integrated Campaign

Unity’s ‘#directfix’ campaign for Direct Line gave the insurance company a rare gift – fans, in addition to customers – and led to a mass reappraisal of the brand.

The campaign broke new ground in PR by using innovative ‘listen-and-respond’ social-media techniques to then deliver fixes to real-life problems. This helped create content with enviable engagement rates for the insurance market.

The ‘fixes’ contributed to the insurance company’s results and put it firmly back on track a year ahead of schedule.
