When a state-owned market opens up to competition, new players scramble to get in on the action.
French energy provider Mint Energie took a sustainable approach to deregulation, with a green offering built on fair pricing, local sourcing and a local customer base.
Selling the switch
Mint Energie had an alluring solution – they just needed get their name out and build enough trust with consumers to have them make the switch.
And that would mean rallying targets around growing sustainability concerns to shed light on Mint Energie’s position as the most viable alternative to unsustainable practices in a rapidly changing market.
Choice is good
“You can’t always get what you want.” It’s true, you can’t always have it your way, but when a company like Mint Energie gives consumers the opportunity to do the right thing (and save on their energy bill), well, it feels great to have a choice.
We ran with the idea, highlighting emotional slices of life when we’d have liked to have a choice in a TV ad, OOH campaign, print ads and digital activations.
One year post-launch, Mint Energie’s promise found its audience and seems to have sparked a green energy revolution.
