Public Awareness Campaign & Toolkit
CFP Board’s current Public Awareness Campaign, It’s Gotta Be A CFP®, raises awareness for CFP® professionals and encourages consumers to visit the Let’s Make a Plan website to learn about the importance of partnering with a CFP® professional.
From digital to TV, materials from this campaign are provided as a resource to help both expand the campaign and the reach of CFP® professionals.
How to use this toolkit
Our integrated It’s Gotta Be A CFP® campaign launched in spring 2023 with a mix of TV, online advertising, social media, radio and public relations efforts.
The intention of this toolkit is for CFP® professionals to use the provided materials as their own. CFP® professionals can download, share, and utilize the content in ways that fit the needs of their own channels and clientele.
The Public Awareness Campaign’s television ads are featured on national broadcast and cable television networks, as well as streaming services, like Hulu. The “Bungee” TV commercial focuses on how asking the right question can greatly impact your future, especially when it comes to your finances.
Below you will find the :15 and :30 second TV spots, driving consumers to the LetsMakeAPlan.org website. These videos can be promoted through your social networks using the “Share link,” or can be embedded directly onto your website using the “Embed code.”
Also provided are two additional sizes of the :30 second video without the website URL. These versions can be downloaded as MP4 files and leveraged to drive consumers to your own webpages and/or social networks. If you would like to use these videos in paid advertising, please contact email@example.com.
