By syncing the takeovers with a relevant content series alignment, the leading insurance brand was at the forefront of any severe weather conversation and was positioned to help consumers learn how to prepare for those weather conditions when they were going to directly affect a user’s area. Utilizing these hyper-local severe weather triggers allowed the brand to accurately pinpoint desired consumers, and thus, AccuWeather delivered a campaign that provided deep engagement and high brand awareness driving consumers to take action.
