MoneyGram provide money transfers to anywhere in the world in 10 minutes. Their 256,000 agents are based in 192 countries and speak 57 languages.
MoneyGram is greatly outspent by its major competitor Western Union and other niche players in a non-exclusive market with a lot of clutter at the point of sale. It needed an integrated campaign to enhance awareness whilst differentiating itself and providing cut-through.
Individuals who have moved to work in other countries to improve their financial status and send money back to their families at home. The audience is massively diverse in terms of ethnicity and culture.
For the person working far away from home, physical distance does not translate to emotional distance from their families. Sending money and sharing their success keeps the family bonds strong and receivers feel enriched and loved.
Sending money is the way in which people who are separated by distance can demonstrate their love and commitment to their families. MoneyGram is the facilitator that makes money transfer simple, quick, available everywhere and affordable, hence the brand idea: Bringing you closer.
1. Engage the audience rationally and emotionally.
2. Work in all markets across the world.
3. Be simple enough to be adapted locally from the master assets.
