Paddy Compare needed a clean website layout with inviting colors, clear CTAs, and compelling content.
The Challenge

Our main challenge involved modernizing a decade-old website and branding, tailored for the core target audience: Irish citizens aged 18 to 65 actively seeking insurance quotes. The mascot logo, starring a leprechaun, and a color scheme primarily focused on green and orange, had started to show their age. Recognizing the necessity of presenting a fresh, professional image to both users and partners.

Furthermore, the brand aimed to project a more professional and dependable image to its network of insurance brokers, crucial for the company’s revenue stream. It was essential for customers to have confidence in entrusting their personal information to Paddy Compare. The existing brand image had lost its sheen in this regard. Additionally, certain offerings, like life insurance, necessitated a more solemn and reliable brand image, one that could instill trust in customers seeking security during times of need.

The Strategy

In response to these challenges, SimplePlan initiated a comprehensive rebranding and marketing strategy central to which was an exhaustive competitor analysis. Our core mission — to connect users with the right insurance — became our guiding star in the process.

By meticulously dissecting the competitive landscape, SimplePlan gleaned invaluable insights into best practices, competitors’ vulnerabilities, and the market gaps it could effectively leverage.

Addressing the two primary user groups — customers and brokers — was paramount. It was imperative to instill a sense of professionalism and trustworthiness in both segments. This newfound focus on professionalism and dependability stood at the core of the revamped brand identity.

The heart of this transformation was the core value proposition that Paddy Compare was here to provide insurance services that both customers and brokers could trust.
