WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina, July 11. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Truliant Federal Credit Union today announced its partnership with personal finance expert Chris Browning. Browning is the host of the popular Popcorn Finance podcast, dedicated to helping listeners better understand their finances roughly how long it takes to make a bag of popcorn.
Money Burst, sponsored by Truliant, is a new personal finance web series featuring helpful short videos with tips and tricks to make managing money easier. The goal is to reach consumers by providing easy-to-digest information in an entertaining way – primarily in their social media feed. In the series, Browning speaks directly to the audience, offering insights and quick shots on how viewers can get their personal finances in order.
Chris Murray, Head of Member Experience at Truliant, said “Our mission is to improve lives and one of the ways we do that is through education. We realized that in today’s digital, always-connected world, we needed to find new ways to deliver education. Getting Money Burst to appear in social media feeds on Facebook, TikTok, Instagram and LinkedIn is how we do it.
“It’s not just for our members. It’s for all consumers – there are no sales pitches or product promotions – just information to help them live a better financial life,” he added.
Browning of Money Burst said, “I know what it’s like to struggle with debt and try to make ends meet every month. The pressure to achieve so many financial goals can be overwhelming and cause many of us to ignore our financial situation. It feels like there’s so much to know. My goal is to be a trusted voice to break down the financial world and help you move away from the pitfalls and into the life you want for you and your family. Money doesn’t have to be complicated, and with Money Burst you’ll get simple, easy-to-understand financial information.
New episodes are released weekly and more than 20 episodes are currently available. Each lasts about 90 seconds and focuses on a singular idea. Recent episodes include topics such as: “Should I invest my emergency fund?”, “How do I start an emergency fund?”, “Advantages and disadvantages of the ‘Debt Snowball’ method.”, “Try a ‘no spend’ day!” and “The best times to use a credit card.”
Murray added, “Chris has been creating great content for Money Burst since day one. We understand that there are hurdles in everyone’s personal financial journey. Chris has a relatable style that makes him fun to listen to. Our intention is to make each episode useful, easy to digest and entertaining. With each episode, we hope that viewers will learn something new.
