While advances in digital technology are changing the game, marketers at large financial services companies have been relatively slow to jump onto the digital bandwagon.

An abundance of regulations regarding how financial companies can – and can’t – communicate with the outside world, reputation risks, and fear of the unknown have all hindered the industry’s adoption of digital channels, such as social media.

Yet the information that the financial services industry holds on their customers and look-a-like audiences sets them apart from other industries. The companies that are embracing technology, instant access and especially the gigantic shift of users to mobile devices are winning the customers from their peers.

We see that financial marketers are pivoting to digital because they are seeing diminishing returns and poor audience engagement in traditional advertising channels. 77% believe high-impact ads can breakthrough as much as TV/print ads. 67% percent say digital is more efficient, believing that it costs less to reach targeted consumers online than off.

Strategy & Activation

Audience segmentation, true customer value, personalised up-selling and cross-selling of products and leveraging that data to target customers across their daily lives are the pillars of success for the Financial Services.
