Title: The Confident Wallet
Brand: T. Rowe Price
Publisher: WP BrandStudio, The Washington Post
The goal was to position T. Rowe Price as a source of finance expertise and build awareness of the brand as a source for actionable insights on a range of financial matters.
The execution of a branded podcast was a first for both T. Rowe Price and WP BrandStudio, and was the culmination of a true collaboration between T. Rowe Price, Wavemaker and WP BrandStudio. T. Rowe Price and Wavemaker recommended topics and subject matter experts, while WP BrandStudio provided production facilities & expertise, sourced industry thought leaders and host, recommended episode structure and lines of discussion, and distribution strategy and scale. WP BrandStudio leveraged insights and best practices from newsroom podcasts to ensure that the series was truly native, resulting in sustained engagement among a highly desirable, technology-savvy audience.
On each episode of #LIPSTORIES influential female founders, creators and thought leaders take listeners through some of their most notable, inspiring, funny stories from their everyday lives—while they’re out traveling the world, crushing it at work, or even just hanging out with friends.
