Credit Union Campaigns

Audiences and Seasonality

As is the case for any type of campaign, the touchpoints for credit unions depend on who your audiences are and what goals drive your credit union marketing. 

Campaign seasonality has been determined over time by the industry—mortgages in spring is one example—but what has changed is when to advertise. One of the marketing advantages we provide for credit union clients is that we build our advertising funnels early so we can see which competitors are starting to build awareness well before the season’s peak.

This means we’re already there, helping build familiarity with credit union audiences while they’re researching rates. They may not take action at this point, but they’ll remember and recognize the name of the credit union already in market. We might even be able to move them towards consideration by inviting them to contact our credit union about rates, instead of letting them just continue their online search without any encouragement.

Four typical campaign types we run for credit unions are Deposits (RRSPs, TFSAs, family savings plans, RESPs) in winter, Mortgages in spring, Borrowing (student, ag and commercial loans) in summer and New Members in fall. Each of these campaigns speak to a different buyer on a different journey, so we tailor our campaign touchpoints and calls to action to the needs and interests of each audience as they relate to the credit union’s campaign goals.
