RRSP Product Marketing Gets Competitive Edge

RRSP Product Marketing Gets Competitive Edge
Customer Insights and Ad Tracking to Target New Markets

Competition for RRSP investment dollars and RRSP loans is fierce.

Every FI gets into the game trying to secure dollars from their existing clients and capture incremental market share.

Despite ongoing attempts by FI’s to shift the RRSP buying cycle, RRSP season continues to be a frenzied push during the month of February with the ever present countdown clock to the contribution deadline.

For companies like Choice Investments, not one of the ‘big five’ Canadian banks, RRSP season is an opportunity to acquire new customers with their very attractive RRSP loans offering.


The challenge: Real time monitoring of competitive activity

The offer mix is defined long before RRSP season begins, but critical to success for the Product Marketing team who is monitoring competitive activity over the 60-day RRSP season.

Traditionally, competitive ad placement, messaging and frequency are tracked by aggregating multiple data sources, ad hoc manual ad monitoring or dependence on other teams to provide insights.


The opportunity: intelligentVIEW AdSpot
