Conversion launched #DragoBT, most loveful online campaign for Transilvania Bank

Digital & Media, Marketing, Social Media

Romanian Conversion signs the digital communication strategy for the recent online shopping event in the banking sector, developed by Transilvania Bank on Dragobete (Romanian Valentine’s Day), #DragoBT.

Campaign’s challenge was to transform a shopping event with a strong rational character (focused generally on price, offers and complex products) into a real holiday. That was why the campaign chose to associate itself with Dragobete, Romania’s equivalent for Valentine’s Day, celebrated on February 24th.

The campaign aimed to promote banking products (credits, shopping cards, travel cards, deposits, Internet Banking, KidCont) offered by Transilvania Bank at promotional costs, on February 23-24, exclusively online, in order to attract the public open towards technology and online shopping.

The campaign started with a teasing in which BT Male-Fairy rallyed Romanian bloggers in his quest to look for helpers. This way, five of the most appreciated Romanian bloggers launched a crowdsourcing contest, asking fans to find proper names for Fairy’s helpers, names to match the Romanian Dragobete. Each blogger chose a winning name and Transilvania Bank offered awards to the most inspired and creative commentators.

An important element from performance point of view was the structure and content for campaign’s landing page, clear and to the point so any person visiting bank’s website was able to get complex info in an easy-to-understand manner. Another differentiation and innovation element compared to other campaign was the mix of 2 products, as the campaign came up with “pair offers”

The digital communication strategy aimed the launch of the second online shopping event, #DragoBT, by associating it with a local holiday and monetizing on the new and more and more visible habit of banking services users: online shopping. The emotional component of the sent message (love) brought Transilvania Bank’s products a human dimension, making them more accessible and easy to like. Moreover, the campaign and the DragoBT naming got viral fast, generating interest and positioning one more time Transilvania Bank on the map of brands associated with the Romanian values and traditions
