Kiwibank, Nigel Latta and TVNZ are back for a second season of Mind Over Money – this time revealing people’s money personalities and how this impacts on relationships.
Kiwibank and Banqer are on a quest to help Kiwi kids learn about the intricacies of financial literacy. The new spot on social shows kids disclosing their finances – talking mortgages, insurance and loans.
Kiwibank has teamed up with Shortland Street’s Jayden Daniels to release a new campaign, by agency Hello, targeting uni students who are keen to have their money reinvested into New Zealand.
Kiwibank started 2017 by pushing the boundaries of advertising. Wanting to spark a conversation about money and New Zealanders’ behaviour with their finances, the bank, with Ruckus and TVNZ, created a whole TV series called Mind Over Money. General manager of marketing communications Regan Savage explains the move away from the TVC.
New Zealanders’ reluctance to talk about their finances is a challenge for banks looking to have meaningful conversations with would-be new customers, so Kiwibank decided to push the boundaries of marketing to get Kiwis to speak up.
Earlier this year, Kiwibank entered new territory as it branched out of a traditional campaign to fund its own TV series, Mind Over Money with Nigel Latta. Following the series’ conclusion on air, we chat to general manager of marketing communications Regan Savage about its performance, separating itself from branded content and where to next for the series.
Our relationship with money is typically something of an afterthought, generally restricted to advice columns and finance pages. However, Kiwibank is taking it mainstream in a new series called Mind Over Money with Nigel Latta, a fully funded series centred on the psychology of money. We talk to general manager of marketing Regan Savage and TVNZ general manager of content solutions Lyndsey Francis about the series and Kiwibank’s decision to take a leap.
Kiwibank is continuing to shed light on the importance of choosing a local bank, with the roll-out of a new ‘It’s ours, is it yours?’ TVC, via Assignment Group, as well as a content marketing section on The Spinoff.
Kiwibank has released a cheeky clip, showing the response of Australians to news that a new faux bank, dubbed Oz Bank, would operate throughout Australia but then send all its profits to New Zealand.
Kiwis aren’t willing to broach the subject of savings in most social circumstances. But with a little ingenuity and a personal touch, Bauer, Kiwibank and OMD got Kiwis to open up.
Kiwibank has turned up the cute in its latest campaign, by Assignment Group, featuring young ones sharing their thoughts on money.
Kiwibank has launched a new campaign challenging Kiwis to look at their future selves in a bid to encourage them to act before it’s too late.
Something that stood out during our research for the influencer feature in the latest edition of NZ Marketing was the willingness of brands to relinquish creative control to the content creators they work with. So we followed suit by handing the cover creation duties over to a few brands we interviewed for the issue.
Most people have that private dance that they turn on when no one is looking. It’s generally typified by an awkward shuffle that stutters its way across the floor to the beat of whatever sound might be playing in the background. Music is optional, and in most cases the elaborate dance moves are brought to a neck-breaking halt if any spectators—beyond the most trusted—suddenly appear on the scene. However, over the last year, Kiwibank has through its ‘Indepen-dance’ campaign given these private dance moves the exposure they deserve. And for the latest iteration of the campaign, the bank has turned to its employees for content.
As has increasingly become clear, content marketing is an effective, progressive and less intrusive way of reaching an audience. The modern audience has less time for shouty or obvious tactics. We’ve grown smarter, wiser and more distracted with a myriad of content options to consume, particularly the millennial audience, which is spending less and less time in front of the television. While perhaps a few years ago it would have been hard to see it coming, banks have gotten very good at employing content marketing tactics, particularly when targeting a younger audience. We thought we’d take a look at a few examples from the main players.
Kiwibank’s general manager of brand and communications Nicky Ashton is one of the many big brains speaking at the NZ Marketing Summit on Thursday September 17 at Skycity. Ahead of the event, which is split into four streams—brand, digital, data and live—we asked her a few questions.
The second episode of Kiwibank’s KB Series featuring Jamie Curry is out. In this episode, Curry has moved into her new flat in Auckland and is attempting to navigate herself through the beginnings of adult life, which she does with much uncertainty and awkwardness.
Kiwibank has released a new campaign with Assignment Group and OMD for its Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver product which targets women, and to get their attention it has channelled the Magic Mike XXL frenzy creating a special instalment ‘Indepen-dance’ videos to screen in cinemas nationwide before the film.
Mass media used to have all the power. But the rise of social media has meant that many individuals are now gaining huge audiences for themselves and stealing some of that power away. And brands around the world are increasingly leaning on them to help spread their messages. In this part of the world, they don’t get much more popular than Jamie Curry, who hit ten million Facebook fans last year and has 1.5 million followers on YouTube. So, after working with Coca-Cola and Netflix, she’s now signed up with Kiwibank to create The KB Series, a six-part series that will follow Curry on her journey from Napier to Auckland as she moves out of home and pursues her career in acting and producing entertaining content for her legion of fans.
TVNZ and Kiwibank are calling for nominations for the 2016 New Zealander of the Year Awards and showing off a refreshed visual identity developed by Assignment Group in a new TVC made by Blacksand.
