Stride, a leading telehealth service specializing in prescription treatments for toenail fungus, sought to amplify its brand presence and educate its audience through a captivating TV commercial. With a budget under $200k and a two-month timeline, our full-service production team took on the challenge, delivering a commercial that resonated with viewers and elevated the Stride brand.
Stride stands out in the telehealth industry, offering convenient, private, and effective treatments endorsed by world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Neil Sadick. Stride ensures that individuals can access necessary treatments without the hassle of scheduling appointments or having embarrassing conversations.
Project Objectives and Goals
The primary goal of the TV commercial was to increase Stride’s brand awareness and educate the audience on the ease and effectiveness of their services. Targeting a broad demographic, the commercial aimed to drive conversions and establish Stride as a trusted name in telehealth services.
Our journey began with meticulous planning and conceptualization. The script was crafted with humor and relatability in mind, taking inspiration from the successful Hims commercials. Storyboarding followed, ensuring every scene was perfectly planned to convey Stride’s unique selling propositions.
Under the direction of Anastasia Delmark and with a dedicated crew of 25 people, the two-day filming process was both efficient and creative. The commercial featured a blend of live-action, 2D animation to showcase the Stride product, and 3D animation to illustrate the treatment process, providing viewers with a comprehensive understanding of Stride’s services.
The post-production phase was crucial in bringing the commercial to life. Editing, special effects, and the addition of voiceovers and music were all handled with precision, ensuring the final product was polished and ready for broadcast.
Distribution and Reception
The distribution was executed by TVA Media Group, the TV advertising agency based out of Los Angeles. The commercial was distributed in three lengths: 15, 30, and 60 seconds. The 15 and 30-second versions were utilized on social media platforms, while the 30 and 60-second versions made their way to TV screens. This strategic distribution ensured maximum reach and impact.
Project Outcomes and Impact
The TV commercial was a resounding success, significantly increasing Stride’s brand awareness and customer engagement. The humorous and relatable script, combined with the innovative use of animation, resonated with viewers, setting Stride apart in the competitive telehealth market.
