Influencer Marketing Agency

Unity Mutual influencers


One of the leading Child Trust Fund providers, Unity Mutual, had a business challenge to grow brand awareness among Millennials and Gen Z, and strengthen its position as a trusted authority on savings for young people.


We partnered with three money-savvy teen influencers with highly engaged followings aligned to Unity Mutual’s target audience.

Each influencer took on our education topics in their own unique way, creating reels discussing what they were saving for in the future and explaining things like Government top ups for LISAs.

Smoking Gun managed the influencers at every stage, ensuring they were clearly briefed and that content was on-brand.

Capitalising on the content and supporting our sharp targeting of those in the market for a LISA, paid social media ads were split tested across Facebook and Instagram, optimised for both traffic and engagement.

The campaign promoted Unity Mutual’s market leading rates and used a clear CTA to send those engaging with content to the LISA landing page.


Increase in applications for savings plans

The campaign sparked thousands of engagements, video views and clicks – but more importantly the client saw an increase in applications for savings plans during the campaign period.

Comments on content were resoundingly positive

Comments on content were resoundingly positive and indicated that it was helping the target audience to consider reinvestment options they might not have otherwise understood.
