Porwal adds that the life insurance industry faces several unique and fresh challenges today. Co-optition, or the enhanced power of the symbiotic effort of advertising for the growth of the entire industry and not just the brand, is one of them. Starcom intends to use nuggets like these in its media strategy.

Sindhuja Rai, general manager and head, Starcom, Bengaluru, says, "We will be incorporating our 'nuts and bolts' approach in our contact planning for delivering on all aspects of communication."

According to Sapna Desai, senior marketing manager, ING Vysya Life Insurance, Starcom's experience, knowledge and passion to deliver scored major points for it. "Life insurance is about people, their needs and emotions," she says. "We think Starcom has the ability to weave human sensitivities when they convert the marketing strategy into their communication and contact plans and draw out successful delivery models for us."
