The Roanoke, Va.-based credit union's use of agile marketing principles to drive sustainable growth garners a feature in the quarterly credit union publication from Callahan & Associates.

Member One Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Roanoke, Va., is being recognized in the latest issue of Credit Union Strategy & Performance for its use of agile marketing to drive sustainable growth.

In a four-part feature, Member One’s agile marketing approach is shown to effectively allow the institution to adjust to changing conditions and achieve its strategic goals while still meeting the needs of its members.

Examples provided in the publication include Member One’s ability to drive nearly 3,000 participants to a credit union-sponsored contest using social media, find the best avenues for growth using detailed demographic data, and implement timely marketing efforts due to the flexibility afforded its marketing team. Combined with direction from a carefully selected leadership team and smart investments in technology, agile marketing is revealed to produce impressive performance numbers for Member One.
