The customer is a publicly-traded, FDIC registered federal savings community bank located in the Midwest. They are a large savings bank with over $10 billion in assets and approximately 100 full-service locations. Their primary focus is to provide exceptional full-service banking and lending expertise.



The financial institution offered the foreign currency product for clients on an as-needed basis without much promotion or branch-wide awareness.

The bank identified the foreign currency service as an opportunity to generate fee income while better servicing its client’s needs. This prompted the bank to seek a partner that could provide strong marketing support that could generate activity at their branches. 



The bank and CXI implemented a comprehensive marketing program to promote awareness about the foreign currency service.

This marketing program was delivered via multiple channels and effectively informed their clients about the service and boosted their local awareness of the foreign currency exchange service.


Solution Specifics

The customer chose to partner with CXI to improve their foreign currency services to their clients. Once the service started, CXI provided the institution with full marketing support. This allowed the bank to easily increase awareness of their foreign currency services.

CXI quickly developed customized marketing collateral to match the customer’s brand style by following their brand guidelines.

Within a month of receiving the brand guidelines, CXI developed the design and copy for the following marketing collateral: Statement Onserts, iPoster, Landing Page, ATM Screen, Online Banking Banner Ad, and Help Box.

After receiving approval on all designs and copy for each collateral and channel, the CXI marketing team collaborated with its preferred printing and distribution partners. This made the distribution process seamless by delivering all of the marketing collateral directly to the customer.

These are all of the marketing solution specifics that were created to generate awareness for the customer:
