Facebook Testimonial Contest Helps Generate 170+ New Credit Union Members! Recently we helped run a testimonial contest campaign for one of our Credit Union clients, AERO Federal Credit Union, and the results were definitely worth sharing. AERO wanted a way to better engage current members and also generate content that would be usable again in the future to reach potential new members. And the CU was interested in finding out how to use Facebook to grow. We suggested that they needed to find a way to put a human face on the outstanding member service experience at their Credit Union. And voila… the Annual “My AERO Ah-Ha Moment” Facebook Contest was born!...

Case Study of FinancialEdge CU “Social Stairway was an absolute dream team to work with. Even though our Credit Union only did the 8 week program, I got so much out of it to continue what they helped us start. The incredible women that run this company are extremely knowledgeable and so thorough! Every step of the way is so well planned but also flexible if need be. I would definitely recommend them to anybody looking for a social media or content marketing overhaul.” - Alyssa S., Marketing Assistant, FinancialEdge Credit Union Dates of Service: September-November 2017
One question we get over and over is 'Where can I find good social media content for our credit union?' And the answer truly is more simple than you might think… JUST ASK YOUR MEMBERS! Example #1: Ask Members Simple Questions on Instagram or Facebook About Favorite Local Businesses/Restaurants Recently we ran a simple comment to win contest for members around ‘get to know your customers’ day (which we changed to get to know your members day!). This is celebrated by businesses on the 3rd Thursday of each quarter, and we have found it’s a great excuse to learn more about your CU members.
