MLB Sales Promotion

Since The Weather Channel is the official weather service of Major League Baseball, a digital sales promo themed around the beginning of the season was right in their strike zone.
A set of 15 custom designed “trading cards” featuring products, sales statistics, branded messaging and TWC personalities was the central piece of the kit. Each kit contained 20 packs of cards, a batting helmet, branded drink coozies, peanuts and boxes of Cracker Jack and the whole thing was presented on an “infield” placemat. 20 of the 300 kits had a “golden ticket” randomly inserted in one of the packs – the finder got tickets to game in their region, courtesy of The Weather Channel!

Direct Mailer

Ascentra partnered with Insightful Quantifiable Results (IQR) in 2014 to help review their credit card portfolio. Through the data analytics it was determined their member’s likelihood to respond to a balance transfer and credit line increase offer based on the members spending habits. We built upon the fresh branding look that was developed in 2013, by creating a direct mail campaign focused on increasing credit card usage and retention in return also increasing their credit card portfolio.Separate letters were created that were visually stimulating in order to engage the member and stand out from the traditional form letters. These direct mailers proved to be the best way to engage Ascentra’s Visa owners.
