Digital Ad Best Practices

Establish a successful hierarchy by include these three essential elements in display ads:

  1. Value Proposition calls attention to the product or service and can include featured highlights, a special offer or pricing
  2. Call-to-Action (CTA) serves as an invitation for the user to click and should be attention grabbing
  3. Logo is essential to include in order to build brand awareness but should not be the focal point.

Additional recommendations:

  • Use high quality assets within your ads. Images must be recognizable and relevant.
  • Don’t use too many words: Your ad may only get a moment of the reader’s attention.
  • Text must be legible. We recommend using sans-serif fonts, like Arial or Roboto, and keeping font sizes to 10 point or above.
  • Use the RGB color mode when designing.
  • Image resolution should be 72 DPI or higher.
  • Keep branding consistent. Landing pages should have the same branding as the banner ad.
  • Use a URL tracking service such as Bitly or ClickMeter to generate a URL for your campaign that allows you to track clicks in real time.

Hot Topic Webinar Overview

ACA Hot Topic webinars are some of the association’s most popular educational offerings. Experts from across the country provide attendees with information on the latest issues, rules and regulations that affect ARM businesses. Sponsoring a Hot Topic allows you to  associate your brand with ACA’s sophisticated take on critical industry information. Hot Topic webinars are recorded, so your ad will reach people even after the initial event wraps.  

Collector Development 

Collectors are the core of your organization and their ability to do their job can make or break the success of your organization. On top of that, they are the brand of your organization, the client, and the industry. This is a lot of pressure! Consistent training will create a process that opens a door to improved performance, career growth and, for businesses, happy customers.

Examples of collector development training include:

  • The importance of call flow
  • Creating trust on the collection call
  • Motivating the consumer to pay
  • How to create win/win solutions

Operations

Everything that happens within a company to keep it running and earning falls under this category. These topics would help participants understand the systems, equipment, people, and processes needed to make the organization more successful.

Examples of operations training include:

  • Training and leadership development
  • Incentive plans
  • Recruitment: Hiring and onboarding to build agility
  • Innovative technology
  • Using data to be more productive

Legal Compliance

We are in a highly regulated industry that is constantly evolving. We need legal and compliance topics that are relevant to what’s happening now and in the future.

Examples would include:

  • Compliance and legal ramifications of technology modernization
  • Licensing changes and expectations 
  • Compliance – What’s new, what’s the same, what’s reinvented
  • Understanding of today’s legal landscape and preparing for what’s ahead

Visibility

Webinars are promoted to the entire ACA community, including ACA Daily subscribers (6,500+), Collector magazine page views per issue (23,105+), monthly website visitors (33,000+).

Hot Topic Webinar Sponsorship

Hot Topic webinars are strategically scheduled to meet ACA International’s mission to “contribute to the success of our members and the positive reputation of the credit and collection industry through education, advocacy and services.” With that in mind, we have a clear plan behind our Hot Topic training and scheduling.

We believe the Hot Topics subjects should address collector development, operations, and/or legal compliance, so we focus our Hot Topic seminars in these three categories and host them on a consistent schedule. Each category will be the focus of training on the same day and at the same time every month.

  10. Limitations on Liability for ACAE Errors, Omissions, or Failure to Publish or Distribute.

Notwithstanding the forgoing, for ACAE errors or interruption that do not materially affect the value of the advertisement, ACAE may grant refunds or credits in its discretion. ACAE’s liability to Advertiser is limited in all cases and in the aggregate, to the total amount of Advertiser fees paid within the prior 12-month term; however, no such limitation shall apply to intellectual property infringement claims or ACAE’s willful misconduct or gross negligence. Advertiser retains the right to obtain equitable relief where appropriate.

  14. Force Majeure. ACAE will not be in breach of these Terms by reason of any failure in performing in accordance thereto if the failure arises out of causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of ACAE. Such causes may include, by way of example only, acts of God or of the public enemy, acts of the government, fires, and floods and other catastrophic events.
  15. No Waiver. No provision of this Agreement shall be waived except pursuant to a writing executed by the party against whom the waiver is sought.

  16. Assignment. Advertiser shall not assign this Agreement, in whole or in part (by assigning any right or delegating any duty under this Agreement), voluntarily or involuntarily, by operation of law or merger, or in any other manner, without ACAE’s prior written consent which may be withheld in ACAE’s sole discretion.

The parties agree that the exclusive forum and venue for any legal action arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, and the parties submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. If neither subject matter nor diversity jurisdiction exists in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, then the exclusive forum and venue for any such action shall be the courts of the State of Minnesota located in Hennepin County, and the parties submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
