Media Insight is planning to run a pan-European press campaign, centred
around national newspapers, in a bid to persuade affluent internet users
to log on.
The theme of the pounds 5 million advertising drive, which has been
devised by Media Insight’s sister agency J. Walter Thompson, is ’being
first’ - First-e, which has no branch network, will be Europe’s first
fully online bank.
The press ads will focus on a range of famous pioneers, including
Charles Lindberg and Yuri Gagarin.
The campaign for Dublin-based First-e kicks off in the UK this week,
before being rolled out across the rest of Europe.
Media Insight’s account director Steve Hughes will oversee the First-e
business. ’Everyone appreciates that the internet is the future and we
are pleased to be working with one of the pioneers in the field of
internet finance,’ Hughes said.
First-e is backed by Intel Corporation, Apax Partners and Metro - the
biggest supermarket chain in Germany.
