Established in 1985, Valley Health Plan (VHP) is the only locally based health plan in Santa Clara County, CA. VHP is committed to improving the overall health and well-being of the community it serves through education, outreach and affordable health insurance for individuals and families.

Due to increased competition and its expansion into another region, VHP needed to implement new strategies to maximize current member retention and clearly communicate the values and benefits to potential customers.

  • Multicultural Marketing

  • Messaging & Asset Development
  • Brand & Strategy Development

Help grow VHP memberships and remain competitive in its primary region as it introduce its products and services to a new nearby region.


Audience segmentation and transcreation were key to the campaign, as they empowered VHP to engage its audience authentically and relevantly.


TRAFFIK Health utilized data-driven brand positioning and representative creative execution to authentically engage with targets for a 28% increase in leads and 25% increase in brand lift.


Through brand development workshops, strategic media placements and audience insights, TRAFFIK Health evolved VHP’s positioning, building a brand platform based on deep community commitment, inclusivity and compassion.
