The history of Charles Schwab
The corporation was indeed founded by a man named Charles Schwab, alon gwith two partners. It started out with an investment newsletter in 1963, which was called Investment Indicators. This was incorporated as a firm called First Commander Corporation in 1971 and also added brokerage services.
When Schwab bought all the stock from this company, he changed its name to Charles Schwab & Co. He opened his first branch in 1975, and had discount brokerage services for his clients. Shortly afterwards he added seminars to help clients with their financial needs.
Charles Schwab finds a way to make their ads memorable
It's probably a little bit hard to come up with a cute and fun marketing campaign for something like a banking and brokerage firm. How many banking commercials do you remember from the past few years? If you do remember some, then it's likely that Charles Schwab ads are some of them.
They ran a series of very successful TV commercials that had the catchy slogan "Talk to Chuck." They were actually later expanded to include onlie ads, billboards, print ads, and ads in local Charles Schwab branches.
Because they had a short, memorable phrase, the ads were a huge success. They also did a good job of making Charles Schwab sound personal, rather than a faceless company.
On top of that, the ads, which started running in 2005, helped provide a distinction between Charles Schwab and the negative image that big Wall Street firms had.
