On August 19, nationwide car wraps manufacturer, JMR Graphics, comments on Citi Bank’s successful advertising for their Citi Bike. The emergence of Citi Bike in New York City, as a flourishing branded utility, is helping to promote a more positive image for Citi Bank.
According to an August 16, 2013 article published by Digiday, entitled, “Citi Gets Serious Brand Mileage From Citi Bike” the bike-share program, Citi Bike has become popular in New York City, since its launch in May 2012. Riders have logged in about 3 million miles, making over 1.5 million trips. The program’s 6,000 bicycles have acted as a useful functional outdoor advertising for Citi Bank.
“People are talking about and sharing the program in such a positive way – it’s really becoming a part of the fabric of New York City, says Elyssa Gray, head of creative for North America marketing at Citi. “These kinds of opportunities for a brand don’t come by every day.”
The article goes on to highlight data from Wildfire that shows Citi’s Twitter following has grown from 141,487 followers to 166,579 followers. In addition to that, social data from Networked Insights shows that on launch day, Citi Bike drove “almost a quarter of the total Citigroup conversation.”
