It's a tough job market out there. Most university students rack up huge amounts of debt and after graduation there are few opportunities. MATC offers an alternative with training and certification options for jobs that are in demand. In fact, they have an 86% job placement after graduation. It's an opportunity to have a professional career in half the time, at half the cost. A career in the trades to millennials seems less prestigious than white-collar jobs but there's a huge demand for workers. Our campaign made this career path cool again and increased admissions.

Banks are generic. They all offer the same products and it's hard to differentiate one bank from the other. Bank Mutual was looking for a way to stand out in the crowded category. We created an integrated campaign that positioned Bank Mutual as the bank who helps you plan for those life-changing, financial milestones you want to reach in life. We called it, Mutual Milestones, and we reinforced this message with the aspirational tagline, Tomorrow Starts Today. TV and pre-roll executions show people reflecting on how they reached their life milestones from humble beginnings with help of Bank Mutual.
Bank Mutual wanted to connect with consumers over the summer with a promotion that engaged the community. The strategy was to create a more relatable brand perception by integrating the new Mutual Milestones brand concept into a promotional social media campaign. Secondary goals included social engagement and data collection. During the three month promotion, users could enter to win prizes and giveaways by uploading photos of their summer milestones to Instagram and Twitter using #milestonesummer. Judges selected the winning photos.
The results: 2,525% increase in brand following. 2,000+ pieces of content submitted. 1,000 contacts added to database for remarketing.
