Background

Racing ahead

Car-servicing company Kwik Fit wanted to increase awareness for their new monthly subscription service, Kwik Fit Club, and drive affinity among a millennial audience. They looked to Xbox’s popular racing title, Forza Horizon 5 to jump-start their campaign and reposition their brand as a market innovator.

Solutions

In the driver’s seat

Kwik Fit integrated their brand on the Xbox console home screen and into the gameplay itself with an interstitial video that celebrated their ‘Ode to the Road’ Kwik Fit Club proposition. The ads featured a QR code to download the Kwik Fit Club app. An in-game activation that enabled Forza Horizon 5 players to drive with a bespoke Kwik Fit vehicle wrap. With data, innovative in-game solutions and social promotions, Kwik Fit was in the driver’s seat of an original campaign that was an impactful departure from anything they’d done before.

Results

A winning formula

Through their campaign, Kwik Fit delivered a significant shift in brand metrics, including a +17% pts lift spontaneous awareness of  Kwik Fit Club, and a lift in brand perception among millennials. Results outperformed the category benchmark across ad recall, favourability, consideration and usage intent, demonstrating the partnership’s success.

Placing an established automotive service and maintenance brand on a virtual car in a highly successful game was a fantastic achievement, which connected us with new customers and as importantly inspired our colleagues many of whom are gamers themselves. We’ve been delighted with the whole campaign.
