Keesler Federal Credit Union: Southern Hospitality with Impact

Project at a Glance

Keesler Federal’s website, which won a 2019 Silver Davey Award, was launched in conjunction with the unveiling of its new brand, spearheaded by Michael Walters Advertising. From the outset of the project, PixelSpoke identified three primary goals: 1) to create a delightful user experience for Keesler Federal members and prospects, 2) to connect with them through Keesler Federal’s culture of service and community impact, and 3) to make a compelling case for prospects to make the switch.

Creating a delightful user experience

The site is bright and bold, with an expanded color palette that creates an immediate and lasting impression. A streamlined navigation structure and robust product pages help visitors to the site get where they need to go, and to find what they need when they get there. Prominent calls to action provide them with a clear next step.

The blog, now merged with the website, is chock full of tips and advice, and financial calculators are seamlessly integrated into relevant product pages.

Connecting with visitors through Keesler Federal’s culture of service and community impact

Through glowing testimonials, friendly language, and helpful FAQs, Keesler Federal’s culture of service shines through on nearly every page of its new website. Hand-drawn icons and other page elements add to its welcoming feel and homegrown charm.

Comprehensive “Who We Are” and “Giving Back” pages highlight Keesler Federal’s impressive history of community giving and the many ways that it embodies credit unions’ “people helping people” philosophy. Photos of the Board of Directors, Supervisory Committee, and Executive Team add an inviting personal touch.

Presenting a compelling case for prospects to make the switch

Instead of leading prospects immediately to a new member application, a prominent “Join” link on the homepage leads helps to make the case for Keesler Federal membership and convince prospects to make the switch. The page outlines the credit union’s three core differentiators, shows exactly how much it saves its members with dynamic rates data updated in real time, and clarifies how credit unions differ from banks.

The page also explains the many added benefits of joining Keesler Federal — including its unique Member Giveback program, which awards prizes to over 35 members each month for using various products and services, and Swap-n-Shop, which offers members a convenient way to sell items and find great bargains.
