Our 2008 RRSP campaign for Envision Financial just earned a silver CMA Award

I first blogged about this campaign back in June. Envision Financial recently entered it into the Canadian Marketing Association Awards and we just learned that our campaign won a silver award in the Financial Services – Wealth Management category. Pretty cool, considering that it was competing against Canada’s five major banks and credit unions from across the country.

Canadian financial institutions use all of their marketing firepower in January and February to promote Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). March 1 is the deadline for Canadians to invest in these tax-sheltered investment products.

Envision had an aggressive $28 million dollar deposit growth goal. This coordinated campaign helped Envision secure more than $100 million in RRSP investments during the first two months of 2008!

Congratulations to Ashok and Michelle at Envision. It was our pleasure to play a part in this successful campaign.

If you are in the throes of putting together your 2009 RRSP campaign and need some help, drop me an e-mail. We'd love to get involved.
