It’s been a great year for the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card and, most importantly, for the Canadians who use this lucrative card for their personal finances. Gaining well-deserved recognition for the value it brings to customers, the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card won three product excellence awards this year:

The Money-Back credit card wins consumers over by simply being a smart way to spend money. Customers receive 2% money-back rewards in selected purchase categories, and 1% back on all other purchases. By selecting categories that they use most frequently for their 2% rewards, Tangerine customers can make the most of these monthly rewards (and skip the annual fee, to boot!).

For a limited time, Tangerine is offering new Money-Back Card users 4% on their selected purchase categories for the first three months.

Affiliate Marketing and Video | Part 2: Crafting Your Content

By | Digital Marketing, Online Marketing Ideas | No Comments

The marketing industry buzz about video content is well-earned and growing. Part 1 of our affiliate marketing and video series outlined why video is vital publishers and merchants alike; this week, we’ll walk through some of the different types of video content that you can produce to optimize your affiliate marketing activities.

What can publishers do?

Thought leadership

Video content that is not expressly related to products or brand partners can still help your bottom line. For example, videos about affiliate marketing, ecommerce, or other subjects related to your site’s industry niche can help establish your site as a quality information source, bringing consumers back for more. If customers trust your industry knowledge, they’ll be more inclined to trust your brand partnerships.

This video from successful internet marketer and blogger John Chow is a great example of simple and effective thought leadership content. Produced with a camera in his car, the video contributes to Chow’s reputation as an industry expert and brings a personal touch to his brand – two vital components of customer trust.

Product recommendations

96% of consumers find videos helpful when making purchase decisions. If you’re a publisher, especially a blogger who does product recommendations, self-produced video content can be a great way to build customer trust and increase familiarity with you and your site. Alternatively, publishing merchant-produced video content, such as product demonstrations, can also boost conversion rates.

Product recommendation videos are most effective when published regularly – consistent content gives your audience a reason to trust your recommendations, and ultimately follow your links.

What can merchants do?

Product demonstrations

In addition to standard advertising content, product demonstration videos can help push customers through the sales funnel. Providing this kind of content to your affiliates (and making it available on your own sites and landing pages) can build consumer familiarity with your brand and confidence in your products, helping you boost sales.

iFetch’s product demonstration video for their automatic ball launcher shows how simple it can be to produce a high-impact product video. With no script, one audio track and natural footage of their product in use, iFetch conveyed the purpose and effectiveness of their product – with nearly 700,000 views to boot!

Video creatives

Produce video content for your affiliates! Particularly if you have affiliates who are getting high amounts of traffic to their sites but failing to convert, video creatives can be the finishing touch that pushes customers to click through and actually make a purchase. According to Vouchercloud, 92% of online shoppers say visuals are the most influential factor of their purchasing decisions.

This GoPro ad showcases how minimal production value can still result in far reach, garnering more than 226,000 views. Your ad can be demonstration-based or have an informative script; either way, the video format will help your customers stay engaged.

Whether you’re an affiliate or a merchant, online video content should be on your radar to ensure that your marketing efforts are meeting their full potential.

Affiliate Marketing and Video | Part 1: A Profitable Pair

By | Digital Marketing, Marketing Trends | No Comments

If you’re a digital marketer, video needs to be in your content repertoire. No longer an alternative content medium reserved for the creatively inclined, video has proven itself to be a high-converting, vital component of a successful digital marketing strategy. According to Hubspot, 87% of online marketers use video content and 96% of B2B organizations use video in their campaigns.

How can performance marketers take advantage of this great creative resource? Whether you’re a publisher looking to drive traffic or a merchant trying to improve sales, a smart approach to video content could be the boost you need to take your marketing strategy to the next level.

Untapped Benefits

Why should you invest your valuable time and resources into video content? It can be tempting to stick with tried-and-true content mediums, but neglecting video is leaving money on the table.

Conversions

Video content converts. Landing pages with video content have been shown to yield up to 80% more conversions than landing pages without video. If you are struggling to get customers to stick to your landing page long enough to convert, enticing video content could be the solution you need.

SEO

Video content is great for your SEO ranking. As mentioned above, it’s a great tool to get visitors to stay on your pages for longer periods of time. This lowers bounce rates and increases click rates, both of which boost your site’s SEO. Video content is also very shareable, making it a strong potential source of high-quality backlinks to your site.

Brand engagement

Well-produced video content puts your brand at the top of your audience’s mind. According to Hubspot, a customer who views and enjoys a video ad will see an increase in brand association of up to 139%. And it’s not just customers – business executives prefer video content to text.

Mobile boost

Mobile video consumption has skyrocketed in the last few years. With cross-platform optimization becoming increasingly important – more than 60% of digital media consumption happens on mobile devices, after all – video  content can help you engage the valuable mobile traffic segment.

Watch for Roadblocks

Of course, the vast benefits of video content do require resources in order to be obtained. While the video production process may seem daunting, scoping out challenges is the best way to meet them head on and budget your time and manpower accordingly.

The learning curve

Video and multimedia content takes time and expertise to produce. However, don’t despair just yet if your content team doesn’t have an audiovisual whiz! There are a number of cost-effective video production and learning tools available, such as the free Vimeo 101 series or online courses from Udemy. If you don’t have a video expert on your team, a small time investment in learning basic techniques and best practices will be well worth the return: high quality content.

Equipment costs

Video production requires equipment; however, don’t assume that you will need to blow your budget on a full deck of professional production equipment! There are a number of cost-effective ways to get basic video equipment – a DSLR and a standard microphone should be more than enough for simple productions. If you’re still not convinced and want to prove the viability of video content before purchasing your own equipment, video equipment rental services are an excellent option for testing the waters.

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 4)

By | Digital Marketing, Marketing Trends, Online Marketing Ideas | No Comments

Hello and welcome to the final installment of our blog series 4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016. To date, we’ve tackled three critical areas of online marketing that are bound to receive a lot of attention in the coming year. Namely, the marketing potential of wearable tech and virtual-reality simulators, two simple attributes that will dramatically improve content-driven campaigns, and most recently, why Ad-Blocker should exhilarate – not terrify – us.

In this ever-changing industry where today’s certainties aren’t guaranteed tomorrow, the simple act of being aware is the best strategy for ensuring a brighter future. So read on to learn about another dimension of marketing through digital channels that should be seriously considered at the start of 2016.

4. The Importance of Niche Social Media

Businesses are no longer apprehensive towards social media. Heavyweight hitters like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are now regarded as the most essential components of the online promotional mix – either get social or consider your business irrelevant. But there are plenty of other, less crowded social platforms out there just begging to be employed for marketing purposes.

While the networks mentioned above are, indisputably, the premier channels for social media marketing, they’re decently polluted with other brands trying to accomplish the same goals. The unique selling point of any social media is its ability to facilitate community engagement, and often it’s a cost-free endeavor – particularly if you’ve got a young unpaid intern at the helm. But in all seriousness, making an impact on Facebook or Twitter is significantly more difficult in today’s media climate. That is, unless you’re willing to bust open the piggy bank and shed some decent coin.

This is why in 2016, brands should begin exploring less popular networks for a more targeted reach and access to an untapped community of potential customers.

Quora for Sharing Insight

One of the Internet’s fastest growing and baby-face social networks is Quora – an online Q&A-based community that’s kind of like the unofficial yet sophisticated sequel to Yahoo Answers. Quora has emerged as the ultimate resource for dependable answers on a variety of topics. Every day, experts with varying backgrounds weigh in on a multitude of queries, to share insight and provide users with unprecedented wisdom. In my opinion, Quora is a fantastic tool for building brand awareness, evidenced by the many politicians who’ve used the platform to demonstrate their prowess in a publically viewable space. For instance, Hillary Clinton has recently taken to Quora to answer a series of questions related to her bid for presidency. Heck, even Barrack Obama will get involved every once in a while and chime in on a pressing issue.

Entrepreneurs, too, have often tackled questions via Quora that are pertinent to their business offering, casually slipping in a reference at the tail-end of their answer to drive awareness and stimulate curiosity. And that’s an important notion to be mindful of when producing marketing content for Quora and other alternative media, to ensure that it’s native to the platform. On Quora, for instance, your answer will not receive much traction if it side-steps the question to blatantly promote something.

Medium for Social Blogging

Another rising platform is Medium – the Internet’s equivalent to a macro-blogging network. Conceived and launched by one of Twitter’s co-founders, Medium is the quintessential publishing platform for aspiring, established and novice writers alike. The idea is affably simple – all content that’s shared via Medium is not only available to readers of a particular blog, but the entire community of users who are active in the network. As Medium builds strength and more people, brands and businesses adopt the platform for any and all discourse, like Quora, even politicians are beginning to appreciate its capacity for user engagement. Consequently, Medium is beginning to replace the “blog” section of any given website for an organization. Indeed, the content is much the same, but the depth of reach has been amplified by Medium’s community-orientation. When a user stumbles upon a great article, it happens organically. Because great content is great content – it speaks for itself regardless of who are what’s behind it.

While nothing will ever replace Facebook and Twitter, it’s always wise to establish a presence on other social media platforms. However, when you determine which network to adopt, just make sure that it’s congruent with the message you’re trying to communicate. I mean, you would never post text-based content on Instagram, right?

So there you have it – four essential considerations for marketers to make in 2016. It’s an exciting time to be alive – we’re living through a digital revolution, and the Internet has produced so much opportunity for marketers to be creative and discover new ways to connect with people.

2016 has finally arrived. How will you tell your story and where will it take place?

 

 

 

 

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 3)

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 3)

By | Digital Marketing, Marketing Trends, Online Marketing Ideas | No Comments

Welcome to the penultimate edition of 4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016. The most recent entry dealt with the importance of creating content that’s not only valuable, but useful or entertaining. If you’re not caught up, don’t be afraid to check out Part 1 and Part 2.

So how will you connect and grow an audience in 2016? There’s so much innovation going on, that putting together a digital strategy can feel a lot like organizing a wedding – in other words, overwhelming. But before you find yourself amidst the chaos of Times Square waiting for that big ball to drop, take some time to become aware of what trends, insights and recent developments are bound to impact next year’s marketing mix.

3. Ad-Blocker and Intrusive Advertising

This is a widely discussed topic that everyone from college students to industry experts  have weighed in on – whether or not Ad-Blocker (and other content filters) are good, bad or great for digital marketing. Personally, I’m a huge advocate for this kind of technology, but perhaps you think otherwise and that’s OK – it’s from this chatter and debate which an ultimate solution will be born.

However, to be brutally honest, marketers who are opposed to the proliferation of Ad-Blocker, uBlock and other content filters should probably consider an attitude adjustment. These browser extensions are wonderful examples of good, strong innovation, and I find it so weird when people cower in response to what is perceived to be “disruptive.” Having the capacity to adapt is the touchstone of any business venture, and naysayers will almost certainly perish in the long-run.

Blemishes on the UX

For instance, nowadays, if you’ve got Ad-Blocker installed, it’s nearly impossible to stream a live sports match online. Granted, these platforms operate in a rather grey area of the law and are technically classified as illegal, but come on – instead of identifying other possible sources of revenue or creating an entirely new value stream, these site operators have elected to restrict access to all streaming services unless, of course, Ad-Blocker is disabled. This panic-stricken behavior is ridiculously common; especially in the digital era – it’s no different than taxi drivers protesting Uber (who have experienced nothing but turmoil, mind you).  The first rule of commerce is to evolve with the business climate. Denying or refusing to accept the future is the least productive strategy, because innovation will always triumph.

Ad-Blocker is designed to eliminate the spammiest of digital adverts – those desperate, intrusive, least-effective and antiquated banner ads that can totally spoil the user experience. So we should stop bashing the creators of such technology and buy them a pint of cold lager – they’ve done the world a good deed. And save for most industry execs, I’m not alone in my views. One commenter on the Financial Times shared his opinion on the matter, representing what I believe to be the general consensus among Internet-browsing consumers. Referring to pop-up ads on the New York Times website, FT user avidreader says: “They’re a serious deterrent to reading the paper online, which is to say a serious deterrent to reading the Times at all.”

Ad-blockers are just like those “no-flyers” signs many people print out and display on their mailbox – a simple yet effective measure that prevents exposure to unwanted promotional material. If people of the real world can do it, why can’t Internet users?

Thanks to ad-blockers and content filters, the Internet is a significantly cleaner place. But like most innovation, it’s not without disruption; marketers are now forced to be more creative than ever.

Out with the old, in with the new – everybody wins.

This concludes Part 3 of 4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for Part 4, the final entry, where we champion niche platforms by demonstrating how alternative social media can amplify a brand’s overall reach.

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 2)

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 2)

By | Digital Marketing, Marketing Trends, Online Marketing Ideas | No Comments

Hello and welcome to Part 2 of our series 4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016. Earlier this week, we talked about super channels – including wearable tech and virtual-reality simulators – and how these mediums boast plenty of opportunity for marketers to explore. If you missed it, need not worry – check out Part 1 and you’ll be caught up in no time.

There are many ways and methods to interact with consumers these days. Executing the best strategy possible is contingent upon a multitude of internal and external considerations. So before 2016 rears its beautiful head, take a moment to become familiar with the trends and innovations that are destined to shape the New Year.

2. Creating Valuable Content Is Not Enough Anymore

We can all agree that the undisputed, byte-for-byte champion of digital marketing is content. Good, meaningful and unadulterated content. In any case, content marketing isn’t really a new concept – it’s more of an umbrella term for a series of practices and philosophies that are generally well-received by consumers in the present day. You cannot just tell someone to buy your product anymore. You must provide something of value that will actually move people to be organically interested in your offering.

Hey, wait a minute – this is common knowledge by now.

Sure, the past few years have seen a proliferation of content-driven marketing campaigns, as brands duke it out over the attention and curiosity of the consumer populace. But to be plainly honest, there’s almost too much content out there and it’s a tad overwhelming. So if the Internet is just swarming with all kinds of branded stuff, what does it take to, you know, stand out?

Whatever content you produce, it either has to be: genuinely useful or wildly entertaining.

Useful Content

In the domain of affiliate marketing, one of the fastest growing verticals is consumer-facing credit cards. These websites serve as digital brokers and have a rather straightforward purpose – to provide the most relevant information about the various credit card options available in the marketplace. In the past year or so, many of these publishers have begun implementing a tool that totally streamlines the consumer selection process. Its primary function is to help individuals find a credit card based on a few simple parameters like age, income and interests. For instance, if you’re a recent college grad who wants to bank some cash and work a little while before taking a trip around the world, the tool might suggest a student-travel option. Conversely, if you’re wealthy proprietor looking for an elite cash back credit card that’ll give you access to a vast network of luxury services, perhaps it would recommend a premium-rewards product.

Because of the tool’s genuine usefulness, online credit card brokers can’t really compete without it. Thus, the industry benchmark has been set.

Entertaining Content

Another genre of content that’s equally as effective is, unsurprisingly, entertainment. The greatest example of wildly entertaining content that I’ve ever experienced occurred way back in the early 2000s, when a third-person driving game called Final Drive was published across the Internet. Gameplay consisted of driving an off-road vehicle in an open, sandbox-style terrain – packed with hills, jumps and cliffs – making for a profoundly entertaining way to kill anywhere from 5 minutes to a few hours. The creator? Oddly enough, it was produced by British rock supergroup, the Gorillaz.

In Final Drive, you play as the band’s fictional front-man, 2D, while their original song “19-2000” plays on an endless loop in the background. I can proudly admit that Final Drive was my first real exposure to any material by the Gorillaz, and since then, I became a fan and have been for the past decade. And if you’re unfamiliar with Final Drive, ask around – the majority of young people I’ve talked to can recall the game, with many admitting that it consumed far too much of their time.

Perhaps it was some kind of brand building fluke, but a Google search will provide evidence of the game’s lasting impact. Many old users have taken to forums and YouTube comments to inquire about the present availability of Final Drive. Others just like to discuss how ridiculously entertaining it was, including one Reddit user operating under the name Jessori who states:

“This game actually made me hooked on Gorillaz back when I was a kid. Man it was so awesome.”

Another user, macaronyboy, also chimes in with the kind of campaign-feedback that every content marketer dreams of:

“I remember finding the game as a kid. I loved the music, but I thought it was just a game until years later…”

Just a game? Oh how you were so wrong, macaronyboy. But as was I and that’s OK, because the Gorillaz absolutely hit the nail on the head with Final Drive. It was just marketing content – cleverly disguised as a wonderfully-addictive game – providing a stunning illustration of how to properly execute a content-driven campaign in the 21st century. Honestly, who knows how many additional albums, concert tickets and merchandise was sold as a result of Final Drive, but it’s safe to assume that the figure is impressive.

For the TL;DR’s out there – content is much more effective when it’s either genuinely useful or wildly entertaining. Yup – two ridiculously simple attributes that can take a campaign from being mentioned in a few Tweets all the way to the front-page of Reddit.

That concludes Part 2! Check back soon for Part 3, where we demonstrate why Ad-Blocker is not a threat, but a surety that marketing is going to get a lot more creative.

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 1)

4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016 (Part 1)

By | Digital Marketing, Marketing Trends, Online Marketing Ideas | No Comments

Marketers have accepted the Internet as the ultimate communications channel, largely due to the medium’s omnipresence and near boundless reach. While content-driven campaigns continue to dominate modern conversation, it’s wise to remember that marketing isn’t merely a static craft. There are always going to be a wealth of considerations to make – particularly so in the digital era – and nailing the right strategy requires a delicate recipe.

2016 is right around the corner, and for the sake of preparation, we’re going to illustrate four areas of marketing that every digital enthusiast should be aware of before the New Year falls upon us.

1. Super Channels for Dynamic Brand Experiences

The future’s almost certainly here, people – wearable technology has debuted in the marketplace. Now, thanks to recent technological advances, these forward-drifting products have been made available for purchase by anyone who’s got both the desire and requisite capital.

So how can marketers aptly leverage the intimacy of, say, an iWatch, without being intrusive and off-putting to the consumer? Many agencies are wrestling with that question now, and because no benchmark has been set, there’s a big opportunity to do something great.

The Current State of Wearable Tech

To date, the most popular product categories appear to be smartwatches, healthware and smart-eyewear, and there are already a few offerings that standout. The Nymi wristband, for example, which serves as the be-all and end-all to identity authentication. In lieu of complicated passwords and a step-above fingerprint technology, Nymi is promising to grant consumers with universal access to all devices via a never-before-seen security feature that they’re calling biometric authentication. Yes, you read that correctly – to ensure that it is, in fact, the real owner who is trying to unlock the device, Nymi’s wristband will cross-reference the heartbeat and EKG pattern (i.e. the HeartID) to verify the user’s identity. Thieves and miscreants be warned – it’s scientifically impossible for two people to share the same HeartID, or so Nymi claims.

If such products were to hit the shelves by the end of next year, biometric authentication technology could very well be 2016’s champion of innovation. Likewise, presuming that consumers are happy to adopt the Nymi wristband, surely, the economy will experience some disruptive consequences. But I, for one, can only foresee one major problem – these advanced security measures will herald the extinction of pawn shops. Think about it… where will these shady merchants obtain new goods if their suppliers cannot produce?

Although Nymi’s wristband isn’t a suitable channel for any marketing endeavors, it’s an object lesson in where consumer electronics are going.

Virtual-Reality Marketing

Besides fashionable tech, marketers should begin exploring more extreme channels for brand experiences, like Oculus Rift – one of the world’s first consumer-facing VR headsets. Presently, the Oculus Rift can only really be accessed at art installations and other participating museums, but due to the overwhelmingly positive response from consumers – not to mention Samsung’s recent foray into virtual-reality products thanks to a partnership with the above-mentioned innovator – 2016 is poised to be a monumental year for VR technology. So again, we must ask ourselves – how can a brand’s value be effectively communicated through such an immensely powerful medium? It’s pretty unclear at the moment, but preparing a good strategy will undoubtedly offer a leg-up on the competition. Soon enough, someone or something’s going to launch a rip-roaring campaign by means of a virtual-reality simulator, and marketers will never, ever look back.

If you ask me, when VR headsets become an established product and appeal beyond the world’s early adopters, the Internet, as we know it, will be totally unrecognizable. Consumers won’t be interested in just reading articles, browsing infographics and watching videos – they’ll want to actually engage and interact with content. I mean, why scroll through a website when you can explore it?

There you have it – Part 1 of our series 4 Considerations for Digital Marketers in 2016. Come back soon for Part 2, where we discuss how two simple traits can help you craft a strong and unforgettable content strategy.

Ding Launches Expanded Affiliate Program with Share Results

We’re Excited to Welcome Ding to the Share Results Family

By | Affiliate Tracking Software, Digital Marketing, Key Features | No Comments

Share Results Has Partnered with Ding

Ladies and gentlemen, get excited – we’re happy to announce our recent partnership with Ding, the world’s largest international top-up provider. Many of you might be wondering… what exactly is top-up? Well, the majority of us in Canada and the United States have cell phone contracts that we pay each month. It’s standard practice for obtaining a mobile device in much of North America, but around the world, it’s a much different story.

Think about your phone like a parking meter; for those of us with contracts, we pay the meter on a monthly basis and that’s it. For people who use top-ups, they put credit into the meter (i.e. their phones) which grants them the ability to make calls, browse the Internet, send texts or Tweet as much they please until the credit (i.e. top-up) runs out. This is where Ding comes in, as their service enables people to send top-ups around the world in just 3 seconds.

Care for another example? No sweat. Imagine that you are originally from China, but have journeyed across the world all the way to Canada in order to find work and support your family back home. Using Ding’s service, keeping in touch with your loved ones is a relatively simple task that’s not bound by distance – all you would need to do is transfer a top-up to their mobile phone.

Company History

Ding was founded in 2006 by Mark Roden, a man on a simple mission – to make the process of connecting with loved ones as quick and effortless as possible.  The inspiration for the company stems from a trip Mark took to Dubai, where he met a waiter who described how difficult it was to send credit to his wife’s phone back home in India. Mark wanted to change this, to make it easier for people to communicate with their families, and as a result, Ding was born.

Mark successfully developed the business which has grown to a network of 350 mobile operators and over 500,000 retailers scattered across the world – it’s an amazing feat by any means.

Looking Ahead

Here at Share Results, we are tremendously proud to lend our top-notch proprietary software to help Ding acquire more customers via the affiliate channel. Using our turnkey software, Ding will be able to reach an entirely new customer base, helping them to achieve continued growth in their industry.

We wouldn’t be so excited if we didn’t believe in Ding’s cause, and we hope you will get excited about it too!

Scotiabank Releases Two Brand New Credit Cards via a Partnership with GM

Scotiabank Partners With GM, Releases Two New Credit Cards

By | Affiliate Program, Network, Promotions | No Comments

Canadians Love to Drive

If you’re a Canadian who’s enthusiastic about automobiles and all things cars, it’s your lucky day – Scotiabank has just introduced two brand new credit cards that might pique your curiosity. In light of a recent partnership with General Motors, the latest editions to Scotiabank’s robust portfolio are designed to reward spending with car-related perks and special offerings. At a glance, those who register for a GM-branded Scotiabank credit card will receive 5% in GM earnings on the first $5,000 spent annually. Affiliates, pay attention – new promotional opportunities await you!

Market Opportunities

At present, the Canadian marketplace is devoid of a strong credit card option that directly benefits the automotive community, thus Scotiabank is aiming to tap into Canada’s unique car culture. The two new credit cards are available in both a premium and no-fee option, with the former dawning Scotia’s much-celebrated Infinite brand. In the spirit of Scotiabank’s other credit options, both cards are also equipped with a number of travel-oriented insurance benefits.

Rewards Program

Points accumulated through the GM® VISA* or GM® VISA* Infinite can be put towards purchasing one of General Motors’ many brands of cars, like Cadillac, Chevrolet or GMC to name a few. Otherwise, if leasing is more your thing, points can be used for making a down payment. Registering for either card will ensure that any interested party can procure a GM-brand motor vehicle a lot quicker, as the rewards scheme established by Scotiabank is decidedly powerful, not to mention competitive –  most Canadian rewards programs offer anywhere from 1 – 2%.

If you’d like to learn more about Scotia’s new GM co-branded credit cards, click on either link provided earlier. We believe that these cards have huge potential, particularly for our active affiliates that are already promoting Scotiabank products. Exciting times ahead, people!

Vroom vroom!
