Consumers all across the globe have evolved in the way they make payments. It is no longer feasible for an individual to physically make payments. This is primarily due to the emergence of online payment gateways that allow consumers to make their purchase via the mobile app of a particular retailer. Consumers would rather save their time by making their payments online via their Visa enabled debit or credit card. Visa Inc. is currently a global market leader with an estimated market capital of $160,000 million. Although, other competitors are not too far behind - MasterCard Inc. at $96,401 million, American Express Co at $53,848 million and PayPal at $43,722 million.(1) (Visa Middle East) In order to continue being ahead of the competition Visa would need to expand their market presence and increase revenue generation from regions that they have recently established themselves in such as the Middle East.(2)
Dubai Shopping Festival is one of the busiest times of the year that retailers capitalize on by introducing offers and promotions to entice consumers to purchase their products. Impact BBDO, devised the 'Visa Deals' campaign that took place during the Dubai Shopping Festival from 1st January to 1st February 2016. The purpose was to increase Visa's brand footprint in among financial institutions, retailers and consumers. They needed a way to communicate with the participants of the 'Visa Deals' campaign to ensure that Visa Middle East's campaign objectives would be met.
With a large target audience, sending out generic content to all participants would not help Visa personify its brand with each participant in the 'Visa Deals' campaign. Hence, Reson8 was customized in order to personalize every email and SMS that was sent out to the participants of the 'Visa Deal' campaign. This was accomplished by means of placing unique shortened URLs in the text messages for each participant. This would uniquely address the deal information to each participant in the 'Visa Deal' campaign as shown below.
Visa Middle East chose UCS' flagship product ? Reson8 to send notifications via Email and SMS to registered participants of the 'Visa Deals' campaign. Using Reson8, UCS dynamically communicated the content for daily 'Visa Deals' to the participants via Email and SMS.
