GutCheck Ensures New Messaging Hits the Market for Major Financial Company

A leading financial services company intended to update its loan platform messaging to communicate new products and services that address key pain points identified in the loan process; they needed to differentiate themselves from the competition. They also sought to reinforce the company’s foundational values and hard-fought competitive advantages.

The brand selected an iterative research approach with qualitative and quantitative methods to funnel and optimize. Specifically, the financial brand’s insights team wanted to understand the effectiveness of potential new positioning statements based on the following criteria:

    1. Overall appeal
    2. Resonance
    3. Message clarity
    4. Believability
    5. Branding.
