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.

When friction can be a brand’s best friend

I always enjoy those oft-forgotten, in-between moments in any experience. These moments are not necessarily part of any defined experience per se. They likely wouldn’t show up in an organisation’s plans or ideas to help make the customer journey or user flow as simple, easy and seamless as possible.

How much attention should we be paying to the ‘attention economy’?

There’s been a lot of buzz in the advertising industry lately about what’s coined the ‘attention economy’. And it’s fast becoming the new battleground for media channels to prove their wares and to develop and espouse new attention metrics.

Sometimes the best solutions are some of the most counterintuitive

Exceptional CMOs do exceptional things for themselves and for those they inspire. At your best you are creative, innovative and inspirational. We have a problem though. We now live in a corporate world that demands sensibility where everything you do is measurable and stakeholders demand predictability – the antithesis of breakthrough and transformation.
