ANECA True Blue Billboard and Web Page

Case Study

Located in Shreveport, Louisiana, ANECA Federal Credit Union has more than $106 million in assets and more than 6,500 members. Nearly 50% of the area’s market share is owned by three banks: Capital One, Chase and Regions, leaving ANECA to differentiate as the fun, local, alternative to “take a number” banking.

The credit union supports its “We’re Different That Way” position with a mission to support the economic growth and development of the Shreveport/Bossier area.  


Marketing Without Limits

ROI Guaranteed Results

Successful marketing generates interest before it generates sales. By repositioning
“basic free checking”in a whole new way, we increased page views by 974%.


Most competitors in this market offer a basic free checking account. During competitive shops, when asked about their checking accounts, the competition used phrases like, “It’s just a free account.” But ANECA doesn’t offer “just” checking.  They are Different That Way. To increase checking accounts and gain new members, we needed to take a fairly “me too” product (free checking) and differentiate it in a way that made it more than “just free checking.” 

ANECA True Blue Campaign Email, flier and brochure


The Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisiana, market is dominated by younger families, and 23% of the market is in the age range of 21-34. These customers are just starting to experience new careers, marriage, young children and home ownership. As this group is accustomed to customization in most consumer experiences, we repositioned the checking account as “customizable,” allowing customers to select any or all available “add-on” features to help them better manage, access and secure their money. The name, True Blue, draws on ANECA’s signature blue brand color, while also speaking to the idea of checking that’s “true to you” because it’s customized by you.



The True Blue Checking launched on November 1, 2018, and November and December media placement included:

• Digital media (Google and Facebook display ads)

• Outdoor

ANECA True Blue Campaign Digital Banners


True Blue Checking was a true success. The new positioning raised interest in the checking account. In just two months, the product-specific True Blue Checking webpage was the seventh most active page on ANECA’s site, with 5,653 page views. In fact, the True Blue page came out ahead of pages that were active all 12 months, including our previous checking page, which had 2,632 page views all year.
