Visible Takes On Wireless Industry's Bias Against Singles, Offering Family Plan Savings

Visible Takes On Wireless Industry's Bias Against Singles, Offering Family Plan Savings

Dec. 18, 2021

Visible, the Verizon-owned all digital wireless carrier, today announces the launch of their holiday campaign entitled "Smash the Drama," to amplify awareness of the carrier's first-to-market offering: family plan savings without the need for a traditional "family plan." Visible will be promoting the campaign with a tongue-in-cheek holiday spot, airing now; a holiday hotline where celebrity experts and influencers offer real-time drama relief and advice to fans; and an in-person and virtual holiday relief smash room called Visible Presents: Shatter the Family Drama built to literally smash the holiday drama.

Approximately one-third of wireless consumers subscribe to a single line plan versus a family plan, and Visible is focused on providing them with the same premium experience at the best rates in the industry: as low as $25/month for unlimited data, with taxes and fees included.

The creative spark for the campaign stemmed from the fact that, as CEO Angie Klein says, being single in wireless is similar to women facing the "pink tax," the cost increase women often pay on certain items such as razors and dry cleaning that men do not.

Klein states:

"Single people are in effect penalized by all the major telecommunications companies by requiring those not in a family to spend more on their monthly wireless plan. At Visible, we pride ourselves at providing real savings for everyone, no matter their family or relationship status."

 

Visible has created the first wireless plan that delivers family plan savings without the need for a traditional family structure or shared payments. Consumers can join with whomever they want, whenever they want, with how many people they want — because Visible understands that family comes in all forms. Even if consumers choose to fly solo, it is easy to join a "party" with a stranger, ex, coworker (you name it!) and still share the same savings. Visible's ultimate goal is to break the mold of what is traditional, while delivering service that is affordable and accessible for all - for as low as $25/month.

Consumers will see Visible's holiday drama relief campaign come to life through an integrated campaign including:

  • The holiday spot, running across digital platforms and on linear TV through the end of the year, in both :15 and :30-second versions.
  • A "holiday hotline" live Twitter event on December 14, in which partners including Bachelorette alum Mike Johnson, comedian Matt Bellasai, and TV personality Gizelle Bryant take over the Visible handle and help audiences solve all of their holiday family drama woes in real time.
  • An in-person smash room event, aptly-titled Visible Presents: Shatter the Family Drama, at 29 W 23rd St. New York, NY 10010 on December 17-18, 2021. Attendees can walk through a "home for the holidays" themed living room and take out their holiday-related family frustrations by smashing everything in sight. For example:
  • Filled stockings you can rip from the mantle embroidered with, "Why aren't you married yet?"
  • Christmas tree ornaments that say, "Your generation has it so easy" and "Why can't you be more like your brother?"
  • Wine bottles with custom labels such as, "Dry and slightly bitter, like your family"...and more.
