NRMA Motoring and Services wins Multicultural Marketing Award for big business

NRMA Motoring and Services has won the Australian Multicultural Marketing Award – big business for its its ‘Motor Value Bundle’ campaign targeted to the Sydney Chinese community.  

NRMA used above-the-line Chinese language advertising and utilised its existing Chinese language-speaking staff members to achieve an 80% uplift among its target market compared with other sites outside the test market.

“Due to the success of the campaign, NRMA has increased its capacity and ability to track and analyse multicultural marketing activity and has plans to explore future multicultural marketing engagement with the Chinese and other ethnic markets,” NRMA channel marketing manager, Angela Tobin, says.

Minister for multiculturalism John Ajaka spoke at the gala reception at Sydney Opera House:

“Good campaigns use the strength of a multicultural workforce to deliver a message that is not only about increasing sales, but also grabs our imagination and adds to our social cohesion and community harmony. Tonight’s winners have displayed creativity, hard work and dedication.”

Marketing’s profile on NRMA Motoring and Services head marketer Jana Kotatko goes into more detail about the company’s marketing strategies.
