MAPLE GROVE, Minn., May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Local member-owned cooperative TopLine Federal Credit Union was honored with four marketing awards from the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN). The Minnesota Credit Union Network Marketing Awards acknowledge outstanding credit union efforts in the areas of branding, community impact and outreach, digital advertising, printed materials, video and complete campaigns. TopLine was recognized in four categories: Branding, Complete Campaign, Digital, and Printed Materials.

In the Branding category, TopLine’s “Passionate About Helping People” ad campaign brought the honor. TopLine partnered with KARE-11, an NBC-affiliated television station, the most watched TV station in Minnesota to air 3 different commercial spots on broadcast television for the first time ever. TopLine was also an exclusive sponsor for the “Communities that KARE” segment that airs every Monday on the Sunrise Morning News (5am and 6am broadcasts). To coincide with the broadcast commercial and “Communities that KARE” sponsorship TopLine also ran ads during the Olympics, streaming television commercials on over 125+ networks, social media ads on Facebook and Instagram, digital ads with KARE-11 and a variety of community advertising efforts. All promoting the benefits of belonging to TopLine and their commitment to serving members and the communities.

TopLine took home the award in the Complete Campaign category for the rollout of their new Credit Cards. TopLine created a campaign featuring a fun theme of “Improving Your Card Game.” The campaign included a series of direct mail communications, email messages, branch lobby displays, website page updates, newsletter articles, social media advertising, videos, online/mobile banking messaging, on-hold messaging, statement messaging, FAQs in an online knowledge platform, a fun giveaway (customized deck of cards) and more.

In the Digital category, TopLine won for efforts in increasing TopLine’s Instagram following. Instagram provides a great way to reach and engage with current and prospective members and continue to increase credit union awareness, as well as enhance TopLine’s awareness in local market communities. TopLine held a series of fun, interactive contests and surpassed over 1,000 followers.

TopLine’s “Staycation” themed direct mail piece took top honors in the Printed Materials category. Promoting a new Interest-Only Home Equity Line of Credit, the campaign featured a “Staycation” theme; this was a fun and attention-grabbing way to connect with their audience. The imagery included a man in his shower dressed for a beach outing holding a selfie stick and fun drink in hand. The main copy points were “Staycation Plans? TopLine’s got you covered” and “Whether you’re planning a staycation or diving into your home repair or renovation to-do list, TopLine’s got you covered!”
