Valley Bank Social Campaign Wins Platinum Hermes Award 

Boston, MA - May 28,  2021 Boston Digital, a full-service digital marketing agency, announced that they have been awarded a platinum Hermes Creative Award for their work with client Valley Bank. The Hermes Creative Awards recognize creative professionals going above and beyond to produce digital content with eye-catching imagery and powerful storytelling. Boston Digital is beyond thrilled that they were able to bring the Valley brand to life, through a collaborative social strategy, and award-winning creative. 

“Anytime our work is recognized on behalf of a client is a good day,” said Boston Digital president and CEO, Peter Prodromou. “While we are thrilled to be honored ourselves, the more important thing is that we are doing work that is making a difference for Valley Bank.  We thank them for letting us do this important work for them.” 

Valley Bank and Boston Digital worked together to develop a new online personality for the brand. They built a robust strategy, and created thumb-stopping content that was in line with their core brand pillars. To achieve Valley Bank's marketing goals, Boston Digital had to engineer a social solution that would get followers and keep them interested. 

Partnering to Build a Robust Social Presence 

The agency started off by crafting a clever Facebook ad campaign to further optimize their best-performing channel, launching fun, humorous creative that helped their page gain 18,000 followers and 8,000 likes. The next priority was to build an engaging organic presence for Valley Bank across Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn by crafting an overall strategy focused on refreshing Valley Bank’s brand personality, and creating relatable and snackable content.
