Content-based microsite for the Commercial Bank of Dubai
Fully fledged content marketing strategy
The Commercial Bank of Dubai (CBD) had an objective of acquiring a large number of new customers that just moved to the UAE by the end of 2016. The main target audience being expats, the idea was to launch a project that would engage with this target audience as well as acquire new potential customers before they land in the UAE.
Initial state of the project
In the increasingly competitive banking landscape, it was becoming very difficult for banks to gain brand awareness and turn this into acquisition. As such, our strategy aimed to put CBD front-of-mind for those new to the UAE.
The project included the full scoping of the digital acquisition strategy.
Stages of the Project
Strategy: the Prototype team interviewed CBD stakeholders to gather sufficient background information before diving into the lead generation strategy to drive new customers.
UX: The user experience design was a key component in the execution of the overall strategy for this project, so the team defined the UX initiative and mapped out the entire customer journey before entering the design stage.
Content production: the next step in the creation of this microsite was content production around the topics Moving, Living & Money. The goal of the website was to educate visitors on life in the UAE with the aim to transform them into customers.
Marketing: following the launch, Prototype initiated the start of the marketing channel implementation to drive qualified traffic to the site.
