'Named Rider' campaign has positive impact
The THINK! BIKER ‘Named Rider’ campaign has had a positive impact in terms of raising the profile of road safety, according to the campaign evaluation report.
The report summarises pre and post campaign research, carried out in the summer of 2011, to evaluate the second burst of the THINK BIKER ‘Named Rider’ campaign. The 2011 campaign was radio-led, whereas the initial the ‘Named Rider’ campaign in 2010 was TV-led.
Before the summer 2011 campaign, just 71% of adults and 77% of drivers could name a source where they had recently seen or heard something about road safety. After the campaign the figures rose to 76% of adults and 81% of drivers.
When asked to describe what they had seen 31% of adults and 32% of drivers said: ‘motorcyclist was named/personalised/gave details of their lives’. 17% (drivers) and 18% (adults) thought the campaign strapline was ‘THINK BIKE, THINK BIKER’.
Upon prompting, around six in 10 adults recognised at least one of the ads from the radio led summer 2011 activity, compared with two thirds at the launch of the TV led campaign.
34% of commercial radio listeners recognised the radio ad, 32% of Video on Demand users recognised the VOD ad, and 18% of internet users recognised the online display ad. 40% of all adults and 43% of drivers said they recognised the petrol station screen ad.
