Great organizations stand out by not just selling products and services but sharing the story behind them. Defined less by traditional demographics and more by shared values, savvy consumers are twice as likely to try new things, become brand advocates on social media and reward or punish brands based on corporate actions. Join Josh as we examine this new consumer opportunity and the narrative marketing techniques needed to help tell your credit union story and gain the attention of your legislators and community.
