When looking for Bank or Credit Union marketing ideas we follow the trade blogs, and great sites like www.cuinsight.com, but we also look OUTSIDE the industry for inspiration. This helps our staff keep clients current and not get overly bogged down in just looking at what other financial institutions are doing.
Check out these great marketing blogs for lots of awesome Bank and Credit Union marketing ideas!
WordStream is an online advertising company that helps automate the process of Google Ad Words PPC spending. Although we don’t necessarily recommend their ad buying services for clients, they do have an amazing blog, with lots of great marketing ideas.
I love this blog by Entrepreneur Magazine that is specific to the marketing industry. They have some informative topics and I especially like how they estimate reading times at the top of the articles! Very motivating!
Now this site is pretty out there in terms of ideas. They share extremely creative campaigns and ideas from all over the world. The examples they feature may not all be easily applicable to Credit Unions or Banks, but I think they do get the grey cells going!
And last but certainly not least… Hootsuite, also an amazing tool that we use with our clients, has a fantastic blog with great tips and marketing ideas. Most of their content is social media related, which makes sense. But these ideas are SUPER relevant for Credit Union and Community Banks looking to excel with online marketing.
As an added #6 bonus blog, we like to think that although our site is focused on Credit Union and Bank specific tips and ideas, we do a nice job of curating great content and then breaking it down into small consumable bites for our readers.
A recent favorite of mine…Credit Card Marketing Ideas to Drive Growth. This a great read on credit card marketing ideas! Many people don't realize that local credit unions or community banks also offer solid credit card options. A good credit card marketing idea is to remind people to consider local options for long-term credit cards.
