Conductor + Adobe Integration Powers Citibank’s Global Online Growth

Citibank’s organic investment has yielded massive gains for traffic and conversions, doubling online credit card applications in the last year.
  • Credit card applications double year over year
  • Traffic to key product pages increase year over year

Steven Bush, VP of Search Marketing at Citibank, realizes that “more and more, we find that our most qualified prospects choose to engage with us through organic search. Customers who find us through organic search are 15% more likely to convert than any other online channel. Organic search is now a significant source for acquisition and revenue, and it delivers by far the greatest ROI of all marketing channels.”

“Our Adobe and Conductor integration gives us a better and more comprehensive understanding of our online performance. Adobe gives us metrics like visits and page views, but it’s Conductor that pulls that story together.”

Conductor + Adobe Delivers a Comprehensive View of Customer Behavior Online

Citi powers its online strategy with two integrated technologies: Adobe Analytics and Conductor Searchlight.

“Our Conductor and Adobe integration is extremely valuable. With it, we have a better and more comprehensive view of our web presence. We’re able to tie together our Adobe metrics – like page views and conversion events – to our Conductor insights, which shows us search visibility, rankings, and competitive opportunities.” (Steven Bush, VP of Search Marketing at Citibank)

Getting the Right Customers to Convert with Content Mapping

Conductor’s Content Mapping technology enables Citi to actively focus on the online buyer’s journey and target specific customer personas with their site content.

Citi used Content Mapping to help launch their Citi Credit Knowledge Center, designed to help them reach the right customers earlier in their buyer’s journey, when they are seeking answers to general questions about credit. Along with using Content Mapping to guide their content creation, Conductor’s technology alerts the Citi team of potential losses.

“One of the biggest challenges that we’ve had was making sure that we’re using the right keywords, the right terminology, the right content for the right product. And content mapping helped us with that. It’s enabled us to get qualified prospects engaged with Citi sooner, and get our brand and products top-of-mind.”

Recently, our Conductor data alerted us to the fact that some of our keywords were ranking for multi-product pages that didn’t make sense from a customer or conversion perspective. Conductor helped us catch that issue quickly and combat any loss in traffic or acquisitions.”

With the integration in place, Conductor ties Adobe’s page-level metrics like traffic and acquisitions to data about how different personas are finding (or have the potential to find) their content.

Together, the platforms give Citi’s team a nuanced understanding of what search terms they should use for what product to attract each specific customer persona.
