Martin embodies the friendly, informative and approachable image that GEICO aims to project. With his distinctive Cockney accent and charming personality, Martin has become a memorable and endearing figure in the insurance advertising landscape.

What sets Martin apart is his ability to simplify complex insurance concepts into relatable and entertaining narratives. His presence in GEICO’s marketing materials helps demystify insurance jargon, making it more accessible to a broad audience. Through humor and wit, Martin engages viewers and creates a positive association with the brand. This simplicity and approachability contribute to GEICO’s widespread appeal, reaching diverse demographics with an effective blend of humor and information.

Target Audience: GEICO originally targeted federal employees and gradually developed a marketing strategy for men and women ages 24-64. The company’s viral pitch, “15 minutes could save you 15% or more” helped attract new customers with discounted rates, leading them to have the greatest market share for auto insurance.
