Open Your Eyes to a Credit Union® is designed to raise consumer consideration of credit unions as a category. The campaign’s national digital-first strategy positions research-proven messages to disprove consumer myths associated with the ability to join and access to money.


Open Your Eyes is running social media and online ads across various platforms including Facebook and Instagram to raise awareness among consumers. By the end of May, the campaign has delivered more than 20 million digital impressions in Minnesota. We are seeing a .29% average click through rate and 14% video completion rate. Video placements on Facebook and newsfeed placements on Instagram are producing the highest CTR’s between the two platforms. New creative was rotated in during mid-April and we continue to monitor performance to determine future optimizations. 

Out of Home and Events

MnCUN is enhancing the online campaign with an aggressive out of home campaign that includes statewide billboards, transit and bus signage, and indoor ads. Over the summer we’ll have an Open Your Eyes presence at numerous regional outdoor music and art events that appeal to our target demographic, including the Minnesota State Fair.
