Zacks Advantage Case Study

Objective

Zacks Investment Management, a 30-year wealth management firm, engaged Fetch PR in a product launch campaign for its new robo-advisor product, Zacks Advantage. Robo-advisors were traditionally marketed towards the Millennial generation as a way to diversify a financial portfolio. However, Zacks Advantage is a product for high-net-worth individuals, typically in the Baby Boomer generation, who may not be as familiar with the technology.

Fetch PR was challenged to reach this target audience through a variety of tactics in a four-month-long product launch that directly led to an increase in product signups.

Results

Approach

  • 65.7 million media impressions
     
  • More than 4,000 visits to ZacksAdvantage.com
     
  • Approximately 1,000 account signups over the course of the campaign
     
  • Through trackable links and goal setting in Google Analytics, 46 signups were directly attributed to media placements and social media advertising campaigns
