Ladder Financial recently raised $ 100 million from outside investors – and it’s using some of that money to try to sell American viewers the idea that great life insurance exists.
The 4-year-old Palo Alto, California-based life insurer and online broker has hired an advertising agency, Fred & Farid Los Angeles, to develop a new campaign.
The first four places in the campaign features a family who set up their home, with unsuccessful homicide attempts, the slogan “Life insurance is so good they’re going to want you dead” and the warning: “But seriously: kill intentionally an insured will cancel all life insurance benefits.
The versions of the ads on YouTube.com received approximately 341,000 views in the first six days of their posting, based on the number of views on YouTube.
