Supercheap Auto has registered the biggest increase in advertising awareness in Australia for the month of September, of all the brands we track in the market. Data from YouGov BrandIndex, which tracks consumer perceptions toward brands on a daily basis worldwide, shows that Ad Awareness of the automotive parts and accessories retailer saw an uplift of 6.7 percentage points over the four-week period.
In early September, Supercheap Auto launched the ninth edition of its long-running “Keep it Running Super with the Best Performing Oils” campaign to encourage automotive owners to keep their vehicles running in top condition by regularly checking and changing their engine oil.
The latest instalment titled “Retirement Rampage” is a seven-minute film that shows five motorsports drivers – Chaz Mostert, Molly Taylor, Matt Mingay, James Moffatt and David Reynolds – racing in high-performance cars to get to a bingo game on time.
Fuel brands sold by Supercheap Auto – including Nulon, Penrite, Valvoline, Mobil and Castrol – appear as podium finishers in the film, which also features Aussie TV personality and racing enthusiast Grant Denyer plus Australian motorbike racer Daniel Sanders.
