Every Monday at 8 a.m., the Wake Up with Rhinebeck Bank online video show targets Hudson Valley, New York residents highlighting interesting people and issues in the area. Episodes run from 5 to 15 minutes, and topics include a profile of a millennial chef, a trip to a local distillery and a chat with the head of a mental health nonprofit. It’s a way the Poughkeepsie, New York-based bank is marketing itself as a community partner. Through interest in the stories and social sharing of the videos by influential locals, the bank hopes customers will stay tied to the brand, which will drive business back to the bank.
“People care more about building a community or telling a story,” said Rhinebeck Bank’s svp of marketing Michelle Barone-Lepore.
