Flatmates.com.au – 2021 WINTER DIGITAL CAMPAIGN



Flatmates.com.au is Australia’s No.1 share accommodation website. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Flatmates.com.au allows people to list spare rooms, find a share house or team up with others to start their own share house. Red Crayon was engaged by Flatmates.com.au to refresh their illustrative brand assets and take the new creative to market via their annual winter campaign. The core campaign objectives included increased brand awareness and preference, increased market share, website visits and new member acquisition.


A key consideration when developing the campaign positioning was analysis of the competitive landscape allowing us to unearth Flatmates.com.au’s true unique selling proposition. We focused on the legitimacy, authenticity, and verified nature of the Flatmates.com.au offering with the ‘Real rooms, real people’ campaign.

The campaign features real life, relatable and authentic scenarios, coupled with modern illustrations that are representative of the diverse target audience and strong call to action messaging. The campaign creative was rolled out across both static and video assets for YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, and Display.

The updated brand style and campaign were well received by the wider internal Flatmates.com.au team. Additionally, the winter campaign saw exceptional results, with an impressive 37.2% relative increase when the audience was exposed to the campaign. When looking at 18–24-year-olds specifically, awareness increased by 42.9%. We also saw a strong view through rate at 57%, up 6% on last year.
