‘Say goodbye to these relics’: Ally’s new campaign positions going to the bank as a thing of the past

Decked out with old-fashioned fonts and looking like it's hosted on Geocities, Ally Bank's new advertising campaign, 'Bank Smarter', wants to make visiting a bank branch a thing of the past.

The big idea: Branch banking was already on a decline before COVID-19 hit. Digital banking has just accelerated since the pandemic.

  • 84% of US adults used online banking in July 2020, up from 81% in July 2019, according to a recent survey.
  • 35% of US adults used mobile banking for most of their retail banking in July 2020, up from 32% in July 2019

Ally's retro campaign: Ally Bank’s latest online campaign reminds us of some of the things we don’t miss about going to the bank. In doing so, the imagery and text encourages people to turn to Ally's digital-only offerings.

  • The campaign highlights four relics of the banking past: the pen chain, pneumatic tube, bank chair, and line dividers.
  • All of the assets drive to a dedicated Landing Page as “retro” as going to the bank, https://ally.com/banksmarter.
  • Social ads will run on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.
  • Kicking off in Q4, the new campaign is a continuation of the bank's Ally's Bills campaign

Voice of the Customer: How “active listening” drives meaningful consumer engagement

  • Successful bankers act on feedback from their customers in relation to in-person or digital experiences, as consumers hold the key to improving how financial institutions conduct day-to-day business.
