Broker promotion animation launched by BIBA

21st October 2014

This British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has launched a short animated video to promote the value of brokers.  Launched at the Labour and Conservative party conferences, it was broadcast throughout the events in key locations to promote the role that brokers play in helping MPs’ constituents find insurance cover.

A slightly modified version is now live for BIBA members to use on their websites and on social media to promote insurance brokers. It can also be personalised for BIBA members who wish to add their own logos and voiceover.

Steve White, BIBA’s Chief Executive, said: “This is the first time we have produced such a video to promote brokers and are pleased with the result. It has given insurance brokers a profile at the political party conferences, and it is supporting the work we are doing to raise awareness of insurance brokers with MPs, civil servants and a wide range of other stakeholders.”

Graeme Trudgill, BIBA’s Executive Director, commented: “Members can take advantage of this animation and download it at no cost to them or it can be personalised for individual brokers for a small ‘at cost’ price. We are pleased that it performs a number of roles – promotes brokers at the political conferences, forms part of BIBA’s wider promotion and gives members a new promotional video.”

The video can be viewed and downloaded here and members should contact Andy Thornley to arrange personalised versions by7 November.

The video follows the recent launch of the BIBA MP guide leaflet which has already been posted to all MPs and is available to BIBA members here.
