Planters First Bank announces partnership with 13WMAZ

Posted on

Planters First Bank has partnered with 13WMAZ to promote our customers, our bankers, and our capabilities to viewers throughout Middle Georgia. This partnership with 13WMAZ, as one of the leading tv stations in Middle GA, features several commercials that highlight our business customers such as Jim Marshall from Southern Bridle Farms and our dedicated commercial bankers. Since we value our customer relationships, we have decided to highlight their businesses through this medium. Additionally, we have focused on our greatest asset and our true differentiator which is our great bankers throughout Middle Georgia.

The Planters First Bank commercials will be featured on 13WMAZ, through streaming services such as Sling and Tubi, and through local online advertising. Additionally, we are excited to share that our commercial will be featured during the Super Bowl on February 7th in our local markets. To promote this featured advertisement, we are running a contest to see who will be the first to identify the business owner in the commercial. See here. Our commercials will be loaded to our YouTube page and will be used on our website, social media pages, and targeted email communications throughout 2021.

When asked about the partnership, Dan Duchnowski, Chief Deposit Officer and Chief Marketing Officer at Planters First Bank had the following to say, “We feel that this form of advertising will allow us to gain name recognition while promoting some great businesses throughout the area. Additionally, it allows us to highlight our greatest assets, our bankers. This partnership allows us to quickly and easily demonstrate how we have helped existing customers and how can help others in target markets. We appreciate our partnership with 13WMAZ and Jim Marshall as we launch this exciting strategic marketing initiative.”
