Grand Opening Kits

What Are Grand Opening Kits?

The Grand Opening Kit (GOK) Program is designed to provide a complete marketing-in-a-box campaign to our credit union clients each quarter. They are intended to offer a low cost, easy way to market a product or service both in the credit union lobby and online through the web, social networks and email. For some credit unions these kits encourage them to “grand open” a new product or service. For other credit unions, these kits are meant to supplement existing marketing.

Currently, CU*Answers is providing one GOK to each credit union free of charge. Credit unions receive a notice in advance with the details and contents of the kit. They then have the option to pre order additional kits for their branches at a cost of $100.00 per kit. Individual pieces of the kits may also be available for special purchase from the vendor via a link from the marketing website.

Delivery

CU*Answers will ship one FREE Grand Opening Kit to every CU*Answers credit union. In addition, credit unions will be able to pre-order additional boxes for their branches. CU*Answers Marketing will send an announcement and instructions for placing an online order for additional orders. Once the final order is placed with the vendor, no additional boxes may be ordered.

What’s in a Box?

Each box is expected to contain a standard set of components that make up the bulk of cost. In addition, each box may contain a limited amount of a kit specific item, such as the key tags for text banking or carabiners for Self Service. However, each kit may contain different items.
