The customer's quick flit in FIs and retail banks

Posted by Felipe Gil on Jul 30, 2019 9:08:00 AM

Some people still enjoy waking up early on a Saturday morning, wear comfy clothes and go shopping. Walking from one store to another, wandering around, trying on clothes, considering the options, talking to a sales person.

And at some point, with tired legs, to take a well-deserved break for lunch, hopefully holding bags with new purchases and satisfaction. But this scenario has become increasingly unusual. There's no doubt technology is deeply affecting the way we buy.

Marketing in FIs: three pillars, or four?

Posted by Felipe Gil on Jun 24, 2019 10:13:00 AM

We have to remember that we are living in the time of the short attention span. Things are not likely to change, since news broadcasters, educationalists, propagandists, etc... are all adapting to appeal to this short attention span generation.

This is a new way of learning and absorbing information.  It is therefore essential for any goods or service provider to get on board with this digital mindset. Consumers expect seamless, perfect, and instantaneous, digital experiences.

Posted by Felipe Gil on May 28, 2019 9:27:00 AM

Most corporations and FIs are, at one and the same time, both suppliers and purchasers. As the supplier of goods or services, the corporation or FI  marketing team has to understand and anticipate the information sought by its clients´ procurement departments during the stages of problem identification, solution exploration, and requirements building.

As buyers, they expect the sellers to facilitate their investigations at every turn, to pre-empt their needs and to provide ideas, solutions and information in real time.

The B2B Buyer Journey in Corporations and Financial Institutions (part 1)

Posted by Felipe Gil on May 6, 2019 9:24:00 AM

Whose is diverse? 50% plus of any population is female. About 10% of any population define themelves as LGBTQ. Very few countries are racially unique.  Even Japan which, at one time, eschewed immigration and is now encouraging it.

France passed that figure in 2012, the United Kingdom is approaching that figure, Canada is composed of 31% minorities, Australia ditto and so on. And lets not forget those countries, the emerging economies, which are ethically mixed from their inception, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia and so on.

We don't accept tokens [Digital marketing today]

Posted by Felipe Gil on Apr 29, 2019 9:38:00 AM
