For June’s Credit Union Spotlight, we turn to BrightStar Credit Union in Lauderhill, Florida. Since 1946, BrightStar has been serving members in Broward County, Florida, and we were happy to sit down with their Member Outreach Specialist Joyce Gaines to talk about their success with the Sprint program from LMCUR.
Every credit union has different ways of promoting Sprint to their members, and Joyce tells us that “[w]e find that offering a combination of 'fun', money saving products along with our usual credit union products and services (i.e. checking accounts, auto loans, credit cards etc.), encourage our members to visit various credit union website pages.”
BrightStar recently had a great experience partnering with their local Sprint store. According to Joyce: “Our Sprint – BrightStar day was a huge success. We had tables set up in the lobby of the Broward County School board building in downtown Fort Lauderdale – any large SEG would work. Our brightly colored tables with giveaways drew attention from employees coming and going. Not only did Sprint sign up a few new accounts, but the credit union did too. Even though we have a full-service branch in the same building, employees get focused on their daily tasks and never find the time to stop by the branch. Having us right in front of them did the trick. Yet again, another way credit unions help their members save!”
The nimble and agile nature of the LMCUR Sprint program makes it easy to share around your community in places people wouldn’t normally expect to interact with their credit union or Sprint, and it really pays off. In addition, Joyce adds, “We are completely amazed at the response of our membership and the quarterly income earned from Sprint. Most of our marketing efforts with Sprint are on social media and we try to make them fun and playful. Grabs more attention and gets more clicks.” The social media and online marketing literally paid off here. You can visit our Partner Center for the latest website banner ads and social media tools for Sprint.
Joyce enjoys working with her local Sprint store and partnering with them for maximum exposure of the program. BrightStar has held “several in branch Sprint Marketing Table Days” and reports that “members love the giveaways and opportunity to save.” In fact, the entire program is turnkey, because BrightStar works with “the regional Sprint Marketing/Development Director, and he coordinates the locations and selects his stores.”
We love that Joyce and BrightStar have had so much success with the Sprint program, and that it continues to benefit their members! Hearing how credit unions are implementing the program and making it work for them, helps us make the program better for all. If you have feedback about the Sprint program, please share it with us. We look forward to working with you and making your credit union the next success story!
