American Family introduces new multi-media marketing campaign


The newest spot, called "This Sacrifice," follows themes introduced in the previous “This Dream” campaign, by demonstrating all kinds of dreams are worth achieving and American Family Insurance gives individuals the freedom to go out and pursue their own.

“This Sacrifice,” the new TV ad that debuts today, shows the hard work and sacrifices people make as they strive to attain their life aspirations and dreams - a woman changing the oil in her car; a man sewing the hem of his pants; a father putting coins in a large jar as his toddler watches - and how American Family protects achievements like a home, a car, a business. 

The multi-media campaign includes TV, radio, print, billboards, online video, social media, digital/mobile display and agency owners marketing components.

Follow-up to "This Dream"

The new TV ad emphasizes themes introduced with the previous campaign, “This Dream." The message conveyed with "This Dream" was that dreams come in all shapes and sizes, American Family protects all kinds of dreams and gives people the freedom to pursue their own dreams.

This campaign is built on the insights gathered from consumers about what they’re looking for from their insurance provider.

"It’s not about protecting sheet metal or shingles," said Kesha Bozeman, enterprise brand strategy director. “Our message is we’re here to protect your dream – THIS home. THIS car. THIS LIFE you’ve worked so hard to (or will) create. And this hard-earned achievement and your dream deserves the right protection."
