Marketing in retail banks: all generations, a single campaign

Posted by Ianai Urwicz on Jun 6, 2019 10:45:00 AM

Not long ago I was having a conversation with a friend who is 63 years old and a retired teacher. She was telling me that the night before, having dinner with her husband and two more couples was taken aback when she realized that she was the only one at the table who used homebanking. I was surprised too.

These are all college educated people, 60 to 70 years old, professionals, university teachers, creatives, cultured people, some with managerial positions.

The diverse bank customer [Digital marketing today]

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. 

According to the U.S. Census, more than 50% of the American population is expected to be composed of minority groups by the year 2042. 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.

Taking this reality, what is your FI doing in terms of communication?

We don't accept tokens [Digital marketing today]

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

It's too easy to get complacent, for companies to do a bit about diversity and then ease off...

The HR manager of a multinational company received a directive from head office about a company-wide initiative to tackle what was perceived in the company as a lack of diversity. And like all head office directives, it came with  plans to nominate a local responsible, to create committees, sub-committees, to hold regular teleconference meetings, make reports... ¿sounds familiar?

It begins at home [Digital marketing today]

Posted by Felipe Gil on Apr 17, 2019 9:21:00 AM

Promoting diversity has been a key element in modern HR practise for a number of years now. A committment to diversity is seen as a sign of good corporate governance, not just in banks but across all commerce and industry.

The purpose of think-tanks, lobbying groups, campaigns and regulations to encourage diversity is not to soak up minorities but, in diverse societies, to increase creativity and productivity by drawing on the wider range of abilities and knowledge and thus to appeal to wider, more diverse, market segments.

Love my bank.... they're kind, efficient and every year I receive a cute, personalized e-card for my birthday. Do you like yours?

If emotional engagement with customers is increasingly important, if customers reject depersonalization at a visceral level, how can banks and FIs avoid dehumanization as they become more automated, more digitalized, as they increasingly turn to AI to handle the vast amounts of data they collect and collate?

Why digital marketing for banks is a win-win situation

Posted by Felipe Gil on Oct 24, 2018 8:38:00 AM

Digital marketing platforms analyze customer movements, established needs, preferences, interests and usage and compare them with available data from other sources.

The resulting information allows the bank to study the behaviour of its customers, but, more importantly, to understand that behaviour, in order to empathize with it and, by extension, to establish services adapted to their clients’ personalized needs.

Everybody knows Aesop's Fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”. It’s the story of a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking wolves are attacking his flock...
