In the competitive financial landscape, staying ahead means not only offering superior products but also navigating the complex web of legislative and regulatory challenges effectively at the local, state, federal, and global levels.

A leading financial institution found itself at a crucial juncture when legislative developments threatened to adversely impact its flagship product and its bottom line. A state legislature was debating a bill with the potential to severely restrict access to some of its financing options. Not only would this bill negatively impact the firm’s revenue streams but also make it harder for its millions of customers in the state to afford certain health and wellness care.

This scenario encapsulated a broader challenge that the company faced: the need for a robust, agile digital advocacy solution that could mobilize millions of customers swiftly and effectively to help influence policy in their favor. 

Thinking Outside the Box

While most corporations shy away from actively engaging in grassroots advocacy in the way nonprofits and associations do, this financial institution understands that strength in numbers is vital when it comes to effecting policy change. By embracing cutting-edge technology and strategic solutions to influence legislation, the company demonstrates a willingness to push the boundaries and be a leader in its field.

The Challenge: Urgent Need for Enhanced Engagement

The onset of the state bill underscored the urgency for the financial institution to elevate its advocacy efforts. Their existing tool lacked the immediacy and engagement power required for impactful digital advocacy. It missed critical capabilities for the financial institution for several reasons:

  • Inability to mobilize a vast customer base for advocacy actions efficiently
  • Ineffective text messaging campaigns that did not meet compliance requirements
  • Unreliable support, customer service, and expert campaign consultation

The Solution: VoterVoice as the Strategic Choice

After an extensive evaluation and consultation facilitated by VoterVoice’s expert support team, the financial institution chose VoterVoice for three main reasons:

  1. Superior text messaging. VoterVoice’s advanced text messaging capabilities deliver immediately and receive higher engagement rates, crucial for mobilizing grassroots support quickly.
  2. Expert support structure. The continuity of expert consultation and technical guidance from VoterVoice’s team instilled confidence in the financial institution that their advocacy efforts would be both proficient and compliant.
  3. Technical and compliance assurance. The seamless integration and secure data handling ensured that the firm’s advocacy campaigns would be launched efficiently, respecting customer privacy and federal compliance requirements.

A Swift and Effective Advocacy Campaign

The financial institution’s partnership with VoterVoice was immediately put to the test with the urgent need to contest the state bill that would affect its financing products. The campaign leveraged VoterVoice’s robust platform to:

  • Launch an advocacy campaign swiftly, addressing the urgent legislative timeline
  • Mobilize millions of their customers in the state through effective text message campaigns, ensuring high engagement and timely action
  • Achieve a streamlined advocacy process, from data integration to campaign execution, without compromising on compliance and security standards

The company’s decision to partner with VoterVoice for its advocacy efforts showcases its leading and innovative approach to corporate advocacy.

Setting a New Standard in Corporate Advocacy

The financial institution’s switch to VoterVoice has not only elevated its digital advocacy efforts but also established a new benchmark for corporate engagement in legislative matters. VoterVoice’s transformative potential lies in enabling companies to respond to legislative challenges with agility and impact, ensuring their voices are heard in critical moments.
