The hottest phase of the year for health insurers has just finished - the population had the opportunity to change providers for the coming year until the end of November. Webrepublic and Sanitas are pleased with their approach in this competitive environment: Thanks to the cross-media optimization approach, the costs for leads were drastically reduced - they are significantly below the benchmark of 2020 and 2021. According to market research data, brand familiarity also increased significantly in Q3. 

“The collaboration with Webrepublic has proven to be successful. With the integrated planning of all online and offline channels, we were able to ensure efficient implementation," says Valentin Hüsser, Head of Marketing at Sanitas.

"Our holistic moving images strategy with the aim of increasing brand trust is working: We are already seeing the first positive results and are eagerly awaiting the final evaluation of the annual performance in early 2023," says Tobias Zehnder, partner and co-founder of Webrepublic. “Measures made especially for this client, such as the ‘Attention Bidder,’ have helped to use the digital channels in a very targeted way."

Webrepublic has been managing the mandate for Sanitas's digital channels since 2018; as of 2022, the portfolio also includes all offline channels such as print, TV, and out-of-home.
