PR Insight: 3 lessons CUs can learn from Apple’s Credit Card launch

first_img continue reading » Speculation had been long brewing in the financial services industry about when—not if—Apple would enter the payments space with its own products, and what that would mean for the industry. Apple officially threw its hat in the ring on March 25 with the launch of a company-branded credit card, Apple Card. Interestingly, the promotional branding around Apple Card ties back to one key theme—“Created by Apple, not a bank.”Time will tell whether Apple’s venture into consumer financial services is a successful move, but there are three main attributes of the announcement that credit unions can learn from today.1. Brand LoyaltyApple has a strong following of loyal users and a hold on the U.S. market, with nearly 45% of Americans using an iPhone in 2018, according to Statista.com. Apple is trying to leverage this loyalty through its card branding and marketing, starting with the name itself: It’s not a credit card, it’s an Apple card.

Freeway Series? We can dream, right?

first_imgBut, hey, it isn’t their fault that only four teams appear to have read the how-to manual that came with the ’17 season. If a playoff spot can be had for 82, 83, 84 wins, why not?This apparently is just one of those years in baseball, one of those years where, thanks to the top-heaviness of a few dominant clubs, average is the new above average.Over the previous five seasons, on the date of Aug. 14, three teams total had double-digit division leads. That’s the same number of teams that right now have double-digit gashes.In other words, the Dodgers, Nationals and Astros have conspired to try to ruin baseball’s pennant push, turning what is supposed to be a stretch filled with drama into one instead swelled with garage time.On Sunday, the Dodgers kept their mojo intact with a 36th comeback victory – 6-4 over San Diego – during a season in which they’ve continually stomped mountains into marshmallows.This one started poorly right away with the second Padres batter homering off Kenta Maeda, the third reaching safely on a Justin Turner error and the fourth singling.That set up a sacrifice fly by Wil Myers, and the Dodgers trailed, 2-0, while thousands of folks in the eventually announced crowd of 46,128 were still on the freeway.Well, the Dodgers also trailed here by two runs Saturday and – just like every other hint of adversity this team has faced the past few months – it ultimately mattered not a single ounce.They came back to win that game when Corey Seager had the big hit, but only because his bases-loaded single came before Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor hit their solo home runs.That’s how it is with these 2017 Dodgers. They’re so good, so equipped to bounce back that taking advantage of the starring moment when it presents itself is a must, otherwise you lose your turn.“It doesn’t matter if we fall behind early or get a bunch of runs early we keep playing the whole game,” Turner would explain later. “That’s what you’ve seen all year…just finding ways to get different guys up there to be the hero every day.”This comeback began not with a Dodger hit but with a Dodger being hit, this team truly capable of seizing on whatever inch the opposition foolishly provides.After retiring the first nine batters, San Diego’s Luis Perdomo hit Taylor with the opening pitch of the bottom of the fourth. He then threw two balls to Seager before Seager lined the first strike of the inning into center for a single.Turner then, on a 1-2 count, homered to right, and, in the span of just seven pitches, Perdomo lost his perfect game, his no-hitter and his team’s lead.Now ahead, the Dodgers wouldn’t be caught, not that it would have mattered, their next comeback seemingly just waiting for the next deficit to show up.“The offense just grinds pitchers down,” said Turner, who homered again in the eighth. “We find a way to scratch and claw.”And hammer and bash and do whatever else is needed to romp over the rest of baseball in a display awesome in both its grandeur and simplicity.It has reached a point with the Dodgers where even the team’s own broadcasters – on the air – are discussing potential Division Series pitching matchups, nearly two months in advance.“I think we take pride in just how we play the game,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “When you hear things, people getting ahead of things…for us to come in each day and prepare to win a game, I think that’s the thing we’re most excited about.”That doesn’t mean the rest of us have to stay in the same moment that continues to impressively consume the Dodgers.We can look forward to October and recklessly so, envisioning the possibilities of one of the NL’s greatest teams ever clashing with one of the AL’s most brilliantly OK. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers kept their streak going, making it 9 1/2 weeks since they’ve lost a series.The Angels kept their streak going, making it six consecutive victories and 12 wins in their past 16 games.So, today, let me be the first to utter those two magic words…Freeway Series!!!center_img All right, so maybe the Angels are a reach to make the 2017 World Series while the Dodgers still look like a cinch.But, with seven weeks of regular season remaining, we have two teams officially in playoff position, the Angels’ mere presence almost as incredible as the Dodgers’ brute stranglehold.On May 3, our two clubs shared identical records of 15-14. Since then, they’ve taken wildly different paths toward potential postseason berths, the Dodgers aggressively clobbering everyone and the Angels idly hanging around.By several measures, the Dodgers are being sized up with the greatest teams in baseball history. Perhaps it’s time someone starts the research to determine if the Angels rank among the greatest mediocre teams of all-time.What the injury depleted and pretty much nationally deleted Angels are doing defies common sense while defining the chronic mediocrity of the American League.last_img read more
