ITN Productions Wins at 2016 Content Marketing Awards for Barclays Personalized Video Campaign
ITN Productions has won a gold Content Marketing Award in the category of “Best Finance” for the Premier Personalization Film they produced for Barclays UK. The Personalized Video was sent to all Barclays UK Premier clients upon sign-up and featured a voice-over with their name, as well as other native personalization elements throughout the video. The win was another major recognition of Idomoo’s effective Personalized Video as a Service offering.
Because Barclays’ insights showed that traditional on-boarding measures can feel overly complicated and impersonal, ITN sought to create a campaign that would build stronger connections with new Premier clients. The results leveraged client data to create highly-personalized videos that delivered a different experience for each and every viewer.
Barclays’ goals were to welcome Premier clients with a “wow moment”, drive and uplift in digital sales and educate clients about value proposition. After launching their Personalized Video campaign, they experienced an uplift in Premier rewards uptake, plus an overwhelming rise in digital channels adoption and direct debit adoption.
Personalized Video once again proved that it can clearly, personably and effectively communicate with clients to establish trust and drive conversion.
“This solution produced amazing uplift in premier accounts driven by consumer insight,” said the CMA judges, unanimous in their decision to award the campaign Gold. “It’s very in line with Barclays positioning and the elements of personalisation were delivered beautifully.”
