Borrowell Gives Birth To New TV Campaign

Toronto, Feb. 13, 2018 – Borrowell, Canada’s leading credit education company, is making its first major foray into television with a 30-second spot that launches today, called “Home Birth.” Created by Toronto-based agency Conflict, the commercial aims to raise awareness of Borrowell’s free credit score monitoring service.

“We know that a lot of Canadians haven’t checked their credit score, or don’t understand how important their credit score is when it comes to borrowing money and managing their financial well-being,” said Eva Wong, Borrowell’s co-founder and chief operating officer. “We’re targeting the majority of Canadians who are financially curious and want to be ‘good with money,’ but find the idea of financial improvement daunting. Checking and monitoring your credit score with Borrowell is the first step to improving it, and is something you can do anytime, so we wanted to have some fun with that idea.”

The spot features a young couple in the midst of giving birth to their first child in a planned home birth. While the soon-to-be mother and the midwife focus on the labour, the soon-to-be father wonders (out loud) whether they can actually afford the cost of raising a child in Canada. He narrowly escapes the ire of his wife when the midwife suggests he simply check his credit score for free at Borrowell.com.

Wong added that she and her team have high hopes that the brand building “Home Birth” will play a big role in supporting Borrowell’s ambitious customer acquisition goals and will encourage more Canadians to check and monitor their credit score.
