Speed Adoption: FINRA Foundation + ALA

A financial services philanthropy had invested in an array of free, unbiased financial literacy tools. But without a multi-channel distribution plan, the materials couldn’t make an impact.

Robust digital assets expanded reach to over 18 million households of underserved Americans with information and tools necessary for financial success. Work included: message propagation planning, digital asset development, social media strategy, community outreach, email marketing, PR and thought-leadership content.

“Your work was both creative and effective.”
