About BANKTASTIC

BANKTASTIC, a marketing agency for financial brands. We build outcomes-based programs that help banks, credit unions and other financial organizations build love, loyalty and profit. Our proprietary National Millennial Advisory Board is invaluable to clients who want to be relevant to millennials.

What makes us different

STRATEGY-BASED BRANDING & REBRANDING

We have 23 years of branding and marketing experience with banks, credit unions, fintechs and other financial brands whose customers and prospects are looking for value, not gimmicks.  

We are a strategy-first agency. We don't jump to tactics or conclusions. We're creative, innovative partners and coaches who help brands thrive.

RESEARCH AND NATIONAL MILLENNIAL ADVISORY BOARD

Qualitative, quantitative, focus groups, surveys—Banktastic offers the full spectrum of modern research tools to help you understand and engage with your customers, employees and competitive environment.

In addition, we have established the Banktastic National Millennial Advisory Board. Reaching and capturing the Millennial audience is critical to building the next generation of customers and employees who by 2030 will be the richest generation in history, holding five times the wealth they have today. We offer a unique solution to this challenge that gives clients insights that inform their business and marketing strategy.

OUR BOOK: BEYOND STICKY

Overall Experience

Martha and I have been friends and business partners for over 20 years. In 2003, her team helped us develop a branding/marketing strategy for a de novo bank that has stood the test of time and is still in use today. She and Alex are thoughtful, innovative and professional in everything they do, and I'm grateful for our relationship!

Overall Experience

Top Notch Professionals! We merged our family backs together which were located over 3 states. We knew we needed to create one new and dynamic “Brand” which described and differentiated us. Lead by Martha, Banktastic visited our branches, interviewed our Bankers and conducted focus groups with our Guests. They came up with a new brand identity including the outside the box slogan “Banking Unusual”. We used that new slogan and developed the brand over 15 years and it helped us expand to 10 states. Martha and her crew are too notch professionals and they too are “Brand & Marketing Unusual”! Thanks Martha for helping us be so successful! We adopted

Overall Experience

BANKTASTIC created a thorough sales/brand messaging strategy for us. The strategy included all of the touchpoints in our sales process along with consistent messaging to use and a "playbook" to follow. We were able to easily incorporate the recommendations into our sales process.

Overall Experience

I have worked with Martha and her team for over the last 15 years and I have always been delighted in the final results. She has helped us develop the branding and the follow on marketing and sales messaging and process for our commercial lending banking and credit union MBL software that we have marketed nationally for the last 25 years. You can trust Martha to get the job done for you!

Overall Experience

We originally hired Martha’s firm to evaluate our current company name with the idea that a new name might better describe what we did. They put together a test including clients and the general public. Results of that testing convinced us that our name was well imbedded in the community and that a name change might very well be counter productive. We proceeded to have them develop a new brand strategy, a new logo and marketing materials. It was a very smooth process and we were impressed with Martha’s professional style of doing business.
