Young adults perceived State Farm as a brand that was out of
touch with people their age. The goal was to change that perception. More specifically, the objectives were to improve perceptions
of the brand and increase auto and renter policy sales production among this group. Unbranded advertising messages about
novel insurance moments prompted young adults to wonder “Now
What?” and drove them to nowwhat.com to find the answer. This
Web site was a relevant way for State Farm to interact with this audience. It changed brand perceptions and drove sales increases
that exceeded goals.
