Client Case Studies
Ernst & Young
Scribe is an official content strategy partner for Ernst & Young’s (EY) digital financial services organization.
We are also pioneering content for EY's wavespace™ innovation lab and the development of the wavespace™ Operation System (OS).
going beyond accounting and advisory
With EY, Scribe works on client "innovation-as-a-service" projects.
Financial institutions often engage technology advisory services and software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers because these are not their core competencies.
Scribe works with accounts, design, and technology teams and contributes content expertise on design sprints, style guides, client presentations, mobile-app copy, web copy, and writing and editing.
Due to the confidential nature of EY's client engagements, portfolio samples are available upon request.
Email marketing capture and automation
Vestwell, a 401(k) plan management platform for wealth advisors, was in need of organizing its email capture processes in preparation for a major CRM software migration.
Scribe assessed and mapped out Vestwell’s mailing lists and available lead data. Then we suggested installing the appropriate tags and using automation services such as Zapier to better capture, organize, and qualify email leads.
We also advised marketing team members on how to incorporate these systems across email marketing services Mailchimp and ProsperWorks, to be better organize email marketing campaigns going forward.
Email newsletter enhancements
Vestwell was also in need of improving subscriber and clickthrough rates for its monthly newsletter.
Scribe created engaging editorial content to address retirement industry regulation and 401(k) plan management for the company’s target audience.
With a light re-design and creating more compelling headers and content, we achieved an 88% increase in average clickthrough rates in the subsequent two months’ newsletters compared to the average 4 prior newsletters.
We added more captivating headlines and compelling, shorter blurbs that link to the full article. We also achieved a 22% in average unsubscribe requests per email.
Boosting followers and presence across targeted social channels
Clicktivated, a shoppable video technology provider, was in need of social media content to expand its presence and showcase its client work, which included big brands such as BMW, Tommy Hilfiger, Emirates Airlines, Rebecca Minkoff, Kohl’s, and more.
By creating social media content that leveraged brand affinity and targeting the client's key demographics Scribe boosted social channel followers and engagement across image- and video-centric channels, such as Instagram and Facebook.

establishing a fintech leader
Clarity Money, one of Google Play's "Best of 2017," featured by Apple's "New Apps We Love," and a Webby Award Nominee, was in need of a blog platform for content marketing and distribution, as well as a drip email marketing campaign to retain users after app download.
Scribe sourced freelance contributors, implemented a style and process guide, and launched a beta blog. We also worked with the CEO and drafted his "founder's story."
Today, we work with the VP of Content and Head of Social to curate and edit blogs and strategize social campaigns, respectively.
Site traffic has attracted more than 18,000 unique visitors and 26,000 pageviews since launching in August 2017.
We also mapped an initial email drip marketing campaign flow and wrote a 10-email series which encouraged new app users to open Clarity Savings Accounts, refer new users, sign up for bill monitoring services, and unlock their credit scores.
Fannie Mae wanted a top-down refresh of its eMortgage portal for wholesale lenders and loan servicers.
Living in the past
The site copy was outdated; the site itself suffered from poor content organization, which impacted site navigation and user experience (UX).
Answers were difficult to find. Valuable content was trapped in cumbersome PDF document downloads, which prevented keywords from appearing across Google and search engines.
Scribe called on its mortgage industry expertise and rewrote and reorganized content and copy for the eMortgage portal. We worked with a design and back-end technology partner to help work within the site's technical limitations to implement these changes.
We re-organized the flow of technical content into a more practical and logical order that followed the sequential steps of the mortgage process.
We simplified and refreshed messaging for the eMortgage mission statement, Fact Sheets, and FAQ documents.
Scribe also wrote copy for the eMortage Learning Series, which consisted of online training materials for onboarding new business partners.
