“Instead of simply putting our resources into a video that is based on ‘selling of an acquisition gift’, which is creating the main bulk of clutter in the very competitive credit card marketing landscape - the strategy that COMPASS VISA has undertaken is one that focuses on creation of content to the video, enticing customers to view and share via Facebook or word-of-mouth sharing to give the video added reach," said Calvin Ng, head of Compass Visa.

"With this strategic focus to the video content on SJCAM, it gave us the opportunity to ‘own’ and build on the leverages of online media, instead of simply ‘renting’ it.”
