Prosper Roundup — Let’s Bank on Each Other™ Edition

by RateLadder on 05/17/08

A few weeks ago Catherine Muriel, CMO at Prosper announced Prosper TV commercials (Prosper TV Spots) and a new slogan: Let’s bank on each other™.

NetBanker covered the story (Prosper Kicks Off Nationwide Lending with New Slogan and TV/Radio Advertising):

One thing I’m sure of: Prosper did a great job showcasing the ads on their website, including the very Web 2.0 touch of posting “behind the scenes” videos of the TV commercials.

Here are the behind the scenes videos NetBanker is referring to: Behind the Scenes 1 and Behind the Scenes 2.
