Bupa and TLC take home the CIM Customer Retention Award 2016

Bupa and TLC win CIM Customer Retention Award

Last night, 14th April 2016 TLC Marketing alongside Bupa became winners at The Chartered Institute of Marketing, Marketing Excellence Awards. Taking home the award for Integrated Marketing Communications: Customer Retention for the Out of the Blue campaign. 

Out of the Blue won this award not only because it made a step change in how Bupa approached retention, but because it also provided a new creative and digital benchmark for the way Bupa engaged with its customers. All of this was achieved against a backdrop of challenging market conditions. The success of the campaign was such, many customers expressed their delight on previously Twitter - a previously unused social media channel for the brand. This engagement extended the reach of the campaign outside the core retention audience and created additional awareness for Bupa. The campaign also provided key learnings around email marketing and generated over 1,800 new opted-in email addresses for future campaigns.

Bupa Out of the Blue finalists again in the Insurance Marketing and PR Awards 2016

Bupa Out of the Blue finalists in Insurance Marketing and PR Awards 2016

The Bupa Out of the Blue customer retention campaign just keeps on giving. It has been announced as a finalist in the Insurance Marketing and PR Awards for Niche Marketing Campaign of the year. 

Bupa wanted to talk to their newly developed customer segment groups and really get to the bottom of why people cancel their policy and how they could encourage them to stay. So TLC were set with the challenge to reduce customer lapse rates.

Bupa wanted to be recognised as the ultimate health partner, both physically and mentally, so a blanket reward or cash incentive wasn't going to fulfil that objective. With our global buying power TLC worked closely with Bupa to find a range of suitable health and wellbeing partners for a fraction of their perceived value. The rewards were then creatively packaged up as a direct mail and a genuine thank you, surprising and delighting their customers and giving them a reason to stay.
