1) Customer outreach with financial services companies

From free consultation, and specific financial services webinars, to potential client interaction from educational programs. This way, companies within the financial services sector can achieve better exposure to their products and relevant services.

2) Digitization of products within a Financial Services Company

Financial services marketing of the future should definitely be focused on digitization.

The marketing campaigns should be focused on paid ads for a better target audience and customer loyalty within the social media platforms of financial services companies. Marketing tools should also be digitalized since they can bring extra added value to the company.

3) Automation tools and big data

Every financial service marketing agency should be able to utilize its data and derive insightful results. This will allow financial companies to target specific customers, help identify services and needs before they are needed, and in general make your marketing campaigns more efficient. Automation CRM is a very useful tool for every marketing department since it can automate most tasks of the marketing pipeline process. Automation is the best way for financial institutions to reduce marketing efforts.

4) Digital Storytelling through your social media channels

This way, they create engagement with their potential customers and high interest to search deeper for their company. A high focus should be put on social media channels since it is the easiest and more efficient way to reach your prospective financial services providers. We are working with banks and financial institutions that understood that margins are in niches. Niche is a term used in marketing, and specifically in search engine optimization (SEO). It describes a small, specialized market. A niche market is one that is not well known to the general public and is often characterized by its high level of interest in a particular subject.

5) Financial services marketing campaigns are proactive and creative

The best financial services marketers are proactive and creative. They understand that consumers use myriad sources to find the right advisor, so they proactively create content on their website, blog about effective marketing tactics in the industry (like this post!), and share helpful tips with their audience via social media. A financial services marketer must be proactive in order to be successful. They must anticipate the needs of their clients and provide creative solutions. By being proactive, a financial services marketer can build trusting relationships with their clients and set themselves apart from the competition.

What is podcasting? Podcasts are audio or video files that you can download to your computer or mobile device. These files then get streamed over the internet, so you can listen to them on demand. As a result, podcasts have become one of the most popular ways for people to consume media content these days!

Podcasts are organized around different topics and generally consist of interviews with experts in those fields. They also include discussions about recent developments in those fields and tips for how listeners might apply what they learn from the show.

It’s not a money issue and you will find the benefits of a good micro quickly! The audio file might be large but with our modern computer storing those files is not anymore a technology issue.

You can also choose a logo that communicates what you want people to know about your podcast without having them listen in. Then when it’s time to publish each episode, just upload or record new episodes of audio files via FTP transfer from one computer over to another where they will then be converted into mp three formats!

Create your website to present your audio content

It’s not mandatory but creating a blog website could also be a nice way for your followers to leave some message, the same way you would have a Twitter account or Facebook account… You can also push it to Google. If you have time, and means, you can also add video recordings. The technology is a bit more expensive and needs more time to set up. We have see numerous talk radio, radio show leveraging both sound and video to increase their audience.

A good podcast with good speakers

It is crucial that you invite speakers with smart ideas. It’s not only about the audio quality, but more about having a topic that people will want to listen to. You can look for talented CEO around the world and forecast your episodes with founders and co founder insights.

When you record make sure your hosts have good micro and they know the podcast “menu”. They should feel comfortable during the podcast to tell a natural story with intimate details. The traffic will grow if your podcast includes true advice and rich topics.

Each podcast episode should have a “cookie” some kind of special dedicate for fans listening to your podcast. Then check the length of your podcast – could you pull off a 45-minute to 60-minute conversation without a safety net?

Track your downloads and generate revenues

You have to check which podcast episode worked well with your fans and also which one attracted new listners. You can also generate additional revenues from your podcast. One way is to promote your own book, workshop, or online course, creating thought leadership at the same time. You can multiply marketing channels in order to increase your visibility and potentially attract new customers too.

The Best Ways to Rebuild Trust in Your Business

How to rebuild trust?

When you lose someone’s trust, it is extremely difficult to gain his trust back. You might find yourself constantly challenged between regrets and overconfidence.

Obviously, repair trust depends on why and how this trust has been damaged. It is obviously courageous to take the first step and call again your prospects, clients, and your relationship to find a win-win solution.

Repairing interests is like a reset. Repairing interests is not a written path and will not bring back the way things were.

To repair this trust it is important to disconnect the problems and you must find the underlying cause of this rupture. Once you successfully found the reason for the lack of recognition and respect, then ask questions :

Do you value my contributions?

Obviously, the way you present your products the way you present your financial solution might not be perceived by your prospect or climb the same way.

Do you need my team services?

People might be afraid of the costs of asking you how much. People might be afraid of the costs of asking how you produced this investment decision.

Do you even care about my contributions? 

Perhaps you successfully delivered your service, but your client doesn’t understand what the actual effort is to produce this service. Connecting with a client means changing the story and creating a new narrative, creating a new relationship. With this social distancing…. with these complexities of contacting and people working from home, your clients will care about your phone calls.

Call more, ask more questions, listen to his empathy and reconnect.
