The Challenge

With a wealth of CRM data, it can be difficult to know how to best utilize it to get the most out of your marketing strategy. Aiming to launch a campaign around card perks and travel rewards benefits, a credit card company was looking to educate potential applicants and inspire them to sign up for a card.
