Intuit Recognizes Dailey for Innovative Work Across Two Business Units

Intuit Inc. recently presented Dailey with the first Intuit Supplier Innovation Award. Dailey was chosen from more than 200 Intuit suppliers to receive the recognition for the innovative work it did for two business units of Intuit, promoting the nation's No. 1-rated, best-selling tax preparation software, TurboTax, and a new Intuit small-business initiative.

“ ‘The Mother of All Banner Ads’ is the only way to describe TurboTron, the creative that Dailey brought to the TurboTax marketing campaign this year,” said Scott Beth, vice president of finance operations for Intuit.

“Intuit not only looks to its employees for innovative ideas, it looks to its suppliers too,” Beth said. “The integrated advertising and marketing campaigns that we did with Dailey broke the mold in so many ways.”

TurboTron was unleashed on the homepage of Yahoo! during Super Bowl weekend, and the banner ad posted the highest engagement of any Yahoo! homepage advertiser in the past three years. TurboTron doubled both the best traffic and conversion rates of any other Intuit homepage banner.

Dailey also helped Intuit celebrate TurboTax’s 25th anniversary on tax day with something AOL had never done previously. Dailey worked with AOL to animate the AOL logo to morph into the TurboTax logo.

Dailey also brought its innovative approach to the Intuit Small Business United campaign. This campaign was designed to allow Intuit to connect with prospects and customers in a new, more emotional way, tapping into their entrepreneurial spirit and inviting them to deeply engage in a community of small businesses. Early results are strong, with almost one million visitors to the Small Business United site in the first quarter of the campaign and thousands of small businesses signing up to win more than $300,000 in business grants, plus free software and services from Intuit.

“To have a client as innovative as Intuit single out our team for an innovation award is particularly sweet,” said Bruce Miller, CEO of Dailey.

“There’s the old adage ‘a client gets the advertising he deserves’— Intuit is totally open to new thinking, and it’s that openness that inspired us to deliver the ideas and results honored by this award.”

Small Business owners are largely forgotten. Thats why I only focus on them. I have experience several members of my family file bankruptcy due to small business failures. I also I suffered through 2 destroyed businesses due to failure however, in my failings I have learned some of the secrets to success. (Who can say they know it all?)
