Briefly describe this campaign's communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 100 words):
While moving is normally a stressful time in one’s life, FlatRate Moving™ successfully created a campaign that changed the perception of the process by launching the "We Take Moving Seriously So You Don't Have To"™ Campaign. Designed as a series of TV commercials, which later went viral, several entertaining videos were produced, highlighting the ease & professionalism of moving with FlatRate.
One such commercial, “Coffee Shop,” featured a man sitting at a coffee shop squinting and panning his fingers from side to side "moving" his sofa onto a FlatRate truck. Immediately after this commercial aired, over 10,000 users viewed it on YouTube.
