LONDON, 05 April 2007 -, Steak Media and creative agency MWO today launch a live motor insurance quote in an online advertisement. Steak Media and MWO developed the concept for the ad to further enhance the message that makes the task of getting car insurance quicker and easier than its competitors. Steak believes it is a media first for a car insurer to have a fully functioning car insurance quote within an ad where the user doesn't have to click away to get their specific premium returned.

The interactive ad, which runs from 05-30 April, will be in the form of a 300x250 MPU into which the user will be able to enter a set of short details. The user will then receive a quote instantly within the MPU and be encouraged to follow a link to to complete the sale. The ads will be featured on MSN, AOL, Virgin Media, and Exchange and Mart.

“One of’s main USPs is that the customer only needs to fill in a short set of details to be given a quote, hence their current campaign ‘car insurance in 60 seconds’. What this creative aims to do is bring that process forward in to the ad so that users see how quick and easy it is to get a quote and are encouraged to trial it for themselves. The aim of this ad is to innovate in what is a competitive and conventional marketplace to drive both quality and quantity of leads to" says Rosalie Kurton, Head of Digital at Steak Media.
