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. They constitute the perfect example for discussing Age Agnosticism: they remain active in their professions, they want to contribute to society, take care of their health, travel as much as they can.

The new kind of mature consumers that no longer have a passive attitude towards aging.

The B2B Buyer Journey in Corporations and Financial Institutions (part 2)

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 22, 2019 9:08:00 AM

B2B buyers research mostly online nowadays.  A recent Forrester study found that more than half B2B buyers research the supplying companies themselves as their major source of information. 

Buyers, inevitably, consult with colleagues, even competitors, refer back to previous investigations and experience. But these merely echo chambers to the plethora of information found online.

Therefore whatever information is online about a product or service has to be complete, accurate and positive.

Marketing in FIs: everyone gets a bite

Posted by Ianai Urwicz on Apr 25, 2019 9:03:00 AM

We assume that digitalization is so much a part of our lives that we forget, very easily, that G-mail is only 15 years old today, that the first Iphone with full navigating capabilities only came out in 2007.

Now well over 65% of the population shops and pays bills using their smartphones and that percentage is rising rapidly as specific demographic groups are targeted and brought into the digital age.

How digital banking is evolving to put consumers first

Posted by Ianai Urwicz on Mar 26, 2019 8:56:00 AM

We are now used to hearing that with digitalization Internet has become a huge, inimaginable shop window where we can find everything and anything. On the web we can look for any product or service and even compare them with ease before buying. But this novelty and the enthusiasm it brings is starting to dwindle.

Now that it’s become a part of everyday life, we take it for granted: we expect everything to be online. Not only we buy, we also do many things on the internet. A great example of this would be home banking, where we manage our bank account, make transactions, payments, deposits, etc. Just the kind of errand that would have taken all morning waiting in lines, can now be done online in pajamas.

Getting it [Digital banking experience part 2]

Posted by Felipe Gil on Feb 19, 2019 8:53:00 AM

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?
