How we developed a multi-channel campaign to achieve maximum brand awareness for Volt.
When a quick nine-month campaign is put in place, your messaging needs to be concise, targeted and consistent. Leveraging off strong media relations and understanding the ins out of Volt’s target market resulted in 77 pieces of quality industry coverage.
Following a record-breaking Series A funding round to support its expansion into new territories, Volt needed to build brand awareness whilst educating merchants and PSPs on the potential of account-to-account payments, powered by open banking. Engagement with investors remained a priority too. Our strategy had three different strategic elements to continue building brand awareness. First, we developed content with compelling B2B thought leadership, positioning Volt at the forefront of the current payment conversation. We also did active newsjacking to identify and react to breaking stories impacting the payments industry. Finally, to support this, we produced punchy social media drafts to amplify content.
