Rebeca Vargas, Head of Marketing for Diverse Segments at Wells Fargo, tells Portada about several advertising and marketing initiatives at the financial institution which will be launched in the next few months. “For the Hispanic segment, we are launching next month four new debit card designs in partnership with the Mexican Soccer Federation and the Mexican National Soccer Team. We have an affinity card with the team and as part of the logo change we developed four new debit cards.” The new debit cards will be promoted through TV, radio and social media campaigns in the third quarter. Additionally, and at the end of the third quarter, Wells Fargo will be launching a sweepstakes campaign offering consumers the opportunity to fly to the Soccer World Cup in Qatar and watch the matches of both the Mexican and U.S. Teams. The sweepstakes initiatives, Vargas notes, will be supported mostly by Hispanic media properties. For the African American market, Wells Fargo in April launched the Wells Fargo HBCU Legends Collection, a new slate of 12 debit cards spotlighting the rich and vibrant legacy of historically Black colleges and universities, or HBCUs. More initiatives in partnership with HBCU are in store. Asked about the deprecation of third party cookies and the difficulties arising to some walled gardens (e.g. Facebook) in targeting consumer segments, Vargas notes that she is aware of these challenges, but that she believes that Facebook and other social media properties are still very important channels, particularly for Wells Fargo’s Mexican Soccer team sponsorship promotions as well as for the Soccer World Cup sweepstakes.

Realogy Holdings Corp.
Realogy Holdings Corp., a global leader in residential real estate services, announced the company will rebrand as Anywhere Real Estate Inc. (referred to as “Anywhere”). Home to renowned real estate brands, Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate, CENTURY 21®, Coldwell Banker®, Corcoran®, ERA®, and Sotheby’s International Realty® as well as national title, settlement, and relocation companies and scaled mortgage origination and underwriting joint ventures, the company expects to implement the rebrand by end of second quarter 2022. Realogy also laid out the next phase of its strategy, which will leverage its advantaged market position and ability to invest to improve and simplify the home buying and selling experience for consumers who are demanding a more seamless, integrated transaction. A New Name, a New Day for Real Estate Taking inspiration from the company’s strategy, the Anywhere brand represents the desire to meet consumers anywhere on the transaction journey across the entirety of the market. The “re” at the end of the Anywhere name nods to the brand’s prominence within the Real Estate industry. The Anywhere mark is an eight-stroke asterisk, symbolic of depth, connectivity, and amplification, with the bottom vertical stroke falling away to lie horizontally as the foundation of a home. While the two lower strokes of the asterisk come together to form a pitched roof, the linear middle strokes form the horizon line and the upper three strokes form the arc of a sun rising above the home, conveying the potential that comes with a new day. As part of the rebrand, the company will also align to a new enterprise positioning to further move its culture and talent strategy into the future. The Anywhere naming and brand development was led by multidisciplinary San Francisco-based design studio, Hybrid Design.
