MatchAffinity will appeal to those who’d like more of a helping hand on their journey to a lasting relationship
(PRWEB) March 31, 2010
match.com, the UK’s best known dating site and brand, is this week launching a new creative campaign across UK television. Conceived by Mother London and airing from Thursday April 1st, the ads introduce a different relationship service from match.com; MatchAffinity.
The campaign builds on the success of the popular 'accidental duet' ads which told the story of a musical conversation between two would-be partners. This new British creative is the next in the series of love stories embracing a similar look and feel, but this time showing a couple who realise their affinity for each other through a dance.
Set in a shoe shop, we see a man and a woman who, by chance, tie their laces to each other. They make eye contact as they realise the mistake, and the audience understands that these people are on the same wavelength as tentatively at first, they begin to dance through the shop in perfect step. The advert closes by directing people to MatchAffinity.com as a first step to a lasting relationship.
MatchAffinity is a different relationship service from match.com. While match.com helps its members find love for themselves through customised search, MatchAffinity suggests committed singles you’re likely to be compatible with, thanks to the results of the in-depth affinity personality test which all members take upon joining.
Karl Gregory, Country Manager, match.com said:
"We're in the business of creating love stories and MatchAffinity is another way we can bring couples together.
We've got 10 years experience in helping British singles find love, and our experience tells us that people look for it in different ways. Some like to search themselves whilst others prefer us to suggest people who they are likely to have a real affinity with and this is what the new creative aims to reflect. MatchAffinity will appeal to those who’d like more of a helping hand on their journey to a lasting relationship.”
Both match.com and matchaffinity.com are part of a comprehensive marketing strategy of the UK market leader.
The 30 and 10 second spots will run across a number of UK satellite and terrestrial television stations. Media planning and buying will be handled by Initiative.
match began with one simple mission: to help people find love. Today more than 160 members leave the match.com site alone, every day as couples.
match.com and matchaffinity.com are two of the services offered by match. While match.com helps members find love for themselves through customised search, MatchAffinity suggests compatible matches based on the results of its in-depth affinity personality test which all members take upon joining.
In the UK, match is the most trusted brand in love and since 2005 over 7 million have joined us in their search for someone special. Based in London's Leicester Square, match.com and matchaffinity.com are part of MEETIC, Europe’s dating leader.
