Zurich, July 9, 2020 – Webrepublic realizes the online campaign for the launch of frankly, the new pillar 3a app of Zürcher Kantonalbank. The broad-based digital-first project pursues a multi-year strategy; so far, all campaign goals have been met or exceeded. Across all channels, half of the targeted download leads were generated before half of the year.

[Translate to English:] Kampagne für frankly-App

Since mid-March, Zürcher Kantonalbank has been advertising its new pension app frankly on various online and offline channels. The goals of the campaign are the brand launch and the generation of frankly app downloads and registrations. The interdisciplinary team of Webrepublic relies on a holistic digital-first project and realizes the complete online presence of the frankly campaign – overall strategy, all performance measures, advertising material production, app tracking, and the optimization of the app store presence. It is especially challenging to coordinate the channel mix along the customer journey with the offline channels on all paid and owned touchpoints and to address the target group at the right moment. 


Every fourth person in Switzerland knows frankly

The interim results after the first campaign peak in the spring are positive: a measurement of brand awareness shows that one out of every four people in Switzerland now know frankly. The advertising measures result in 600,000 microsite visits across all channels. In addition, half of the download leads forecast for the entire year and generated directly by the campaign have already been achieved.

"With Webrepublic, we have chosen one of the leading digital partners in Switzerland for frankly's online campaign and app marketing. Thanks to Webrepublic's professional and highly complex campaign setup, we were able to quickly make the brand known throughout Switzerland. Through efficient performance marketing, the KPIs and the targeted app downloads could be achieved across all digital channels."
