Zoopla has chosen Christmas Day for the launch date of its latest marketing campaign.

The nine-week campaign will appear across a breadth of media channels, including TV, YouTube, VOD (video on demand) and social—and will also include hyper-localised messaging across regions. The portal has purchased numerous primetime ad spaces on television to push viewership.

The campaign and is set to launch one day ahead of the traditional Boxing Day Bounce—a period of high activity for sales and vendor leads.

Zoopla will focus on the real-life changes that constantly create the need to move—be it the arrival of children, marriages, divorces, inheritances and everything in between.

Rich Houston, director of consumer marketing at Zoopla, said:

"Homeowners remain the audience that will be moving most in 2023 and our newest marketing campaign will nudge this group to consider selling and visit Zoopla for all their home finding, moving and selling needs.

"User testing shows that our ‘Home research without the awkwardness’ campaign messaging resonates strongly with consumers. We look forward to leveraging this interest to drive more leads for our agent and housebuilder customers in the new year and beyond."

Interestingly, Zoopla is repeating its own move from December 2019 when it launched a marketing campaign on Boxing Day. The ads are even being voiced by the same person—actress Diane Morgan.

Zoopla CEO Andy Marshall recently stated that the portal achieved a 57% increase in monthly active homeowners on its site off the back of a previous marketing campaign.
