Rathbones

Multi-channel brand awareness in a dramatic ad campaign
Background

Rathbones is one of the UK’s leading providers of investment management services. Managing more than £49.2 billion for its clients, it’s already a name synonymous with trust. But after being in business for over 250 years, Rathbones needed to refresh its position as a company ready to handle whatever the future holds.

Challenge

Increase Rathbones’ brand awareness nationally, particularly around its three key regional offices in Winchester, Chichester and Lymington. To do this, we needed to deepen our understanding of Rathbones’ current client-base, and discover which media channels would gain greatest awareness in these geographical locations.

Solution

After creating three Mosaic profiles representing typical Rathbones target clients, we cross-referenced each of them with postcodes from the Winchester, Chichester and Lymington areas. By evaluating the media consumption habits of the resulting demographic, we could then create a targeted media plan.

We created a 5-month multi-channel ad plan, including Press, Sky AdSmart, Direct Mail and Online Display Advertising, all targeted at a drive-time of one hour around each office. We complemented these efforts with creative executions for TV and a campaign landing page. 

Results

Using Google Analytics, we measured the brand searches and direct traffic to Rathbone’s website, originating from the three towns. This provided us with a top-level measure of the impact of the campaign. It indicated the level of awareness for the Rathbones brand, and the resulting journey online to find out more from each of the locations. Each town saw an increase through the course of the campaign:

79.73%
Increase in Winchester
41.15%
Increase in Chichester
46.15%
Increase in Lymington

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
