Working with Meredith on the social media launch for the credit union has been an amazing experience so far. She is truly an expert in the field.

Her work ethic and committment to the job are greatly appreciated!                                                                                                             -SVP Marketing & Business Development, Peach State FCU

Peach State came to us for training, implementation and overall marketing strategy support as they launched their first Social Media Marketing campaign. They went from absolutely no social media presence to a very active and engaged strategy that has paid off in member buy-in and VERY high fan engagement and interaction. They are now handling weekly customer service enquires via Facebook and Twitter, and are finding a lot of click through interest in their regular blog articles, which are shared each week on their various social networks.

We designed and guided Peach State through several Facebook Page Like contests, targeting staff and Credit Union members, which is how they were able to grow their online audience so quickly.

Beginning in January 2014, when member data was made available, we achieved considerable success targeting known CU members (e-statement enrollees) for Facebook page likes and regular post engagement.

During our time working with Peach State Twitter limited the ability of Credit Unions to advertise or promote posts. However, our expectation is that this will change, which will help CUs reach more members and potential members via the Twitter platform.
