EMERGING DIGITAL MARKETING PRACTICES IN THE FINANCIAL SERVICES

 

Financial institutions are looking for ways to enhance positive customer experience, engage in quality delivery channels and learning from marketing insights.

Content Marketing

Content marketing is a strategy that targets media distribution for the acquisition and retaining of customers.

Financial services try to integrate a multi-channel tactic like SEO (search engine optimization), email and affiliate marketing, social media marketing, blogging and so on.

With this approach, individuals are drawn to a specific page, company site or blog.

Financial marketers are responsible for analyzing the results of content marketing techniques as one channel affects the other.

By reviewing these techniques, financial marketers make better suggestions on the correct mix of tactics for other content marketing plans.

 

 

Behavioral Retargeting



This makes use of the previous interactions customers had with the online content that served as advertisements to them.

With retargeting customers that are yet to be converted or drawn to the financial services site, they are targeted with ads.

It means that they might have to reinvest in social media and email campaigns to engage millennials in the way they want to be reached, which is online.

The idea here is for them to involve and entertain the younger generations instead of selling and bombarding them with products and services.

Mobile Optimization

When it comes to digital strategy, mobile optimization will always be the vanguard for financial institutions.

The use of mobile phones and mobile internet is already overtaking desktop use with almost every mobile user accessing their browser at least once every day.

Most people nowadays prefer to make use of online banking to manage their personal finances.

This broad adoption of smartphone devices means that financial firms need to offer an optimal user experience for their customers.

 

 

With adaptive designs, swiping can be done on screen touch phones.

Financial institutions use this responsive web design to offer a generic site that customers can enjoy in a friendly manner.

Financial organizations need to know that an ideal web experience is not just about it being mobile-friendly, as there is more to it.

Because consumers are continually paying for the products they buy through their tablets and mobile phones there are needs for integration between these banks and mobile payments.

 


The increase of mobile banking also comes with an increased danger of mobile malware.

Since mobile sites are trending now financial services firms need to provide a mobile banking experience that is secure and friendly while being able to detect malware.

The consumption of mobile content will enable financial marketers to have another means of reaching customers through mobile advertising.

 

Gathering of Market Information



While financial marketers are striving to offer mobile-friendly and incorporated content marketing-feels, data about consumers connecting with the brand will be readily available.

This is usually known as the 'big data.'

The huge and complex volume of information is collected and analyzed in this site.

Hence, the financial marketers need to know what they have to take, curate, amass, examine, share, transfer, explore and envisage so that they are put into a usable form.

This gives room for better customer engagement.

To be successful, big data necessitates the good management, distillation and curation of information for organization and optimization.

Realizing the value from this market information means there is a need for an automated system and a human impact to construe and spread data to others that will use it to market to customers.

Financial marketers can build new relations with banks by understanding how this big data is applied based on customer info.

This will generate new streams of revenue for these institutions that will counteract the numerous challenges they have faced.

Some of these challenges are assets underperforming, regulatory restraints and uncertainty of the financial market.

Information collected from the market gives better insight into consumer wants and needs thus providing the financial firms with an advantage in target marketing.

As consumers keep spending and taking advantage of different offers that exist in online mediums, financial firms can always inter-sell other services, products and programs.

With market information, financial marketers can be able to improve customer service, loyalty, and at the same time generate more revenue.

Converging All of Them

Financial marketers make the most of these emerging digital strategies (content, mobile, and data) to benefit financial services firms.

Remarkably, content marketing, mobile devices and market information all intersect.

Content marketing is at its best when all integrated marketing mediums are available on a mobile-friendly platform.

Mobile optimization too is important for viewing content and engaging consumers in their most preferred device.

Mobile advertising, like the search and display ads, email and landing pages, is essential to a good content marketing technique.

Market information collected reveals the manner consumers engage with contents through mobile devices and other channels.

This information is treasured as it can be leveraged to assist in the subsequent customization of content.

With the mobile device, personalized alerts, contextual ads and special offers are all feasible.

For financial firms to entice and retain new consumers and develop brand loyalty, marketers need to efficiently produce content on mobile platforms.

They also need to analyze and leverage the data for an enhanced brand engagement.

More will be seen of financial marketers integrating content marketing, mobile optimization and market information in a consistent digital strategy for financial institutions.
