Verity Credit Union started its VerityMom campaign last year holding a contest of Seattle area moms belonging to Verity CU to blog, produce videos, tweet, etc. for the credit union targeting moms. The campaign was such a huge success, Verity is doing it again for 2012 -- recently announcing their latest "Mom". (Congratulations Danielle Gahl!) We invited VerityMom campaign creator/manager, Melina Young, to provide us with reasons why Verity started this campaign, why target just moms, how they auditioned their 2011 "mom", campaign results, and more. It's a fascinating interview showing how today's credit unions can segment powerful portions of their membership to boost exposure as well as business. Melina does a great job giving us the inside scoop. Enjoy the show!
