DYNAMIC AD CAMPAIGN EMPOWERS FINANCIAL BRAND WITH UNPARALLELED CREATIVE LIBERTY
For this campaign, the client sought a creative partner who could enable them to explore and establish a new brand presence that successfully reflects their business of being a financial services provider with 'a human touch'.
Aware that consumers are tired of traditional messaging usually used in financial ads, Origin was tasked with devising a creative strategy that would allow multiple messages to be tested and measured in-market simultaneously.

THE CREATIVE STRATEGY
With the primary goal being to establish a unique and effective brand voice, Origin's in-house creative team devised a strategy that would enable our client to test, measure and validate a multitude of different creative executions.
Origin's design team produced a highly adaptable ad 'template' which allowed for significant creative and copy flexibility.
Once the underlying ad template was approved, our writers drafted three distinct storylines, each one striking a different financial tone.
With a unique tagline underpinning each one, a minimum of two sets of copy were written for each storyline.
Complex analogies to achievement stories
True to life empathy for financial realities
Humorous metaphors which are relatable
With a total of 6 initial ads from 3 individual storylines running concurrently throughout the campaign, deciding which measurement solution(s) would best serve to provide our client with the data they required to establish was vital. After careful research, we settled on a multi-faceted strategy that would allow us to measure and compare:
The client's CTV campaign was distributed across 11 major DMA's via Origin's curated portfolio of CTV media partners who we work with on an exclusively direct basis.
In addition to using the client's first party data to suppress the campaign from being served to existing customers, third party data was used to target consumers who are:
within a specific debt/income ratio.
have certain aggregated FICO credit scores.
in-market for a personal loan.
home improvement intenders and pre-movers.
interested in debt consolidation services.

FREQUENCY PER HOUSEHOLD
AD COMPLETION RATE
When asked 'Do you recall seeing an ad for brand x', our client saw up to a 54.8% lift in ad recall vs the industry average of 19%.
When asked 'Would you consider applying for a personal loan from brand x?', our client saw up to a 28.7% lift in viewers saying they would consider applying for a loan vs the industry average of 6%.
The leading providers of in-home eye tracking technology, TVision Insights observed the physical attention our clients ads got when they ran and compared them to how other financial ads perform in the same setting.
Tracking each of the client's creatives independently against additional variables such as approximate age, gender and FICO score, our client's creatives scored between 96.9 - 101.2 compared to 79.1 for credit card ads, 91.0 for banking ads and 99.2 for ads selling loans.
Utilizing Claritas as our preferred measurement partner, our client tracked attributable website engagements and conversions from households who were exposed to the creative on Connected TV.
In this campaign, the client's ad creatives were directly attributed to +/- 107,000 website sessions and approximately 15,000 loan applications.
While this campaign didn't support multi-touch attribution, there was a significant portion of households who were exposed to the clients ads as well as via other marketing channels (social, direct mail, email, etc).
