The New Thinking in Banking

Franklin Bank Radio Campaign Business Checking Account Franklin Bank, an independently-owned commercial bank in Metro Detroit, wanted to capture a strong percentage of the area's considerable small-business commercial checking account market. Franklin's goal was to increase their business checking account deposits to a minimum of 18 percent of their total deposit portfolio. Franklin poured all of their media advertising dollars into radio only, creating ads that use humor to illustrate a typical small businessperson's frustrations in dealing with enormous banks. Listeners flocked in droves to Franklin Bank and after the first year, Franklin's business checking account balances are up to 15.2 percent of their total portfolio, well on their way to achieving their overall goal.
