Why is this work relevant for Social & Influencer?

This campaign is targeted at very specific target group - students 15-26 by the most digital and innovative bank in Slovakia. Thats why we focused on most relevant and fitting channels for target group and client - SOCIAL. Even more, we wanted to be as digital as possible, so we crafted our own Digital persona, one might call her INFLUENCER. Bejby Blue came to life to let the youth experience digital success story in real time, story of rise from nothing to stardom. And all that thanks to Instagram, Youtube, TikTok, Snapchat or even Reddit. Just like Billie Eilish.


Tatra Banka is Slovakias leading bank in innovation and digital. It had even won "Worlds most innovative digital bank in the wordld". Its annual student aquisition campaign is one of its online communication highlights, brave and bold and always pushing boundaries. Its campaigns had always used top slovakias influencers and were hugely successful. The problem is that each year there is less and less new students to attract, and the competition started giving out big financial bonuses with each new open account. In year 2018 biggest competitor SLSP had surpassed them in students segment for the first time. So we had difficult task. Make Tatra Banka no.1 in student segment. Open 30% accounts via mobile. And do so while keeping brand values in target group such as innovative and digital.

For the worlds most innovative digital bank, Tatra banka, we were briefed to create students account campaign. So we embodied the era we all are living, even more students- digital era. And we created first 100% digital persona around. Her task was to show young people what they can achieve if they decide to show their own "digital persona" and use their time online in a meaningful way. Bejby Blue let them experience her digital success story in real time. Story of rise from nobody to stardom in digital era -like their heroes, Billie Eilish&Justin Bieber. She launched music career from her bedroom, than appeared on one of the most influential rappers music video, even made her own song celebrating digital era. She also met with other "digital personalities" - influencers, gamers and other people that are successful thanks to internet. By doing so she became part of youth culture.

Describe the strategy (20% of vote)

Target audience are students on high schools, colleges and youth aged 15-25. Studies show, that this TG is online more than 10,5 hours each day. So most of their time awake, they spend living in digital world. But what they do - they communicate, create and connect to people around the whole world. They even change their behavior, and live little different lives while online. Thanks to this digital world they are able to conquer the world. Such as Billie Eilish who is pop star thanks to her talent and Soundcloud fans or Justin Bieber who started as Youtube singer. There are even new careers that weren't possible without digital era - Gamers or Influencers. So instead of telling youth to put their phones away, we decided to encourage them to embrace their "digital personas" and use this time meaningfully to chase their dreams.
