Friday infographic: What would a credit card from Apple look like?

Credit Card Compare's cheeky content proposes what an iCard credit card from Apple could feature

The team at credit card advisory group, Credit Card Compare, has taken a cheeky approach to content marketing by coming up with a concept of a credit card made by Apple.

According to the infographic and supporting text, the ‘iCard’ from Apple would do a far better job of what the banks currently offer and transform the payments industry.

Key attributes include seamless integration with Apple Passbook, allowing consumers to swipe and pay with their iPhone; as well as casting Siri as a financial personal assistant, who can be told to pay bills, quote balances and statement details and even send a message to customer care.

Credit Card Compare’s concept visualisation also suggests the iCard is tied to a notification centre on iOS and OS X, providing real-time alerts when payments are made and received or are due. In line with Apple’s ‘Find my iPhone’ feature, consumers could also access a ‘Find my iCard’ feature to source lost cards or remotely wipe them.

Other notable features include AppleCare+ for the iCard, as well as integration with business accounting software platforms thanks to the ability to export data via XLSX, CSV or XML formats. Those signing up for an iCard could even be entitled to $100 off in Apple’s iTunes store.

Why defining brand strategy is vital to capitalising on quick wins

Big brands were once protected from small brands by high barriers to entry. Big brands had the resources to employ big agencies, to crack big ideas and to invest in big campaigns. They had the luxury of time to debate strategies and work on long-term innovation pipelines. Retailers used to partner with big brands.
