The FI GROW Team

Trusted Partners & Digital Teachers

Let's Make it Happen!

Our Mission

At FI GROW we believe traditional bank marketing is broken. Fragmented digital efforts waste money and produce bleak results. We create robust digital experiences that align your marketing and sales efforts and enable your institution to have a meaningful impact and achieve your goals.

Our objective is to enable community-based financial institutions to use digital marketing success to drive meaningful and lasting impacts in their local communities.


Here's Why Bank Marketing is Broken

Incomplete and disjointed digital efforts are often a complete waste of money. Marketing isn’t generating leads and when they do these leads are rarely passed effectively to sales for follow-up. Community-based financial institutions won’t survive the next 10 years without effective digital innovation.

Our Solution

We build robust digital branch experiences that put marketing and sales on the same team while also creating an impeccable user experience for customers.

Digital branches replace old school websites and disjointed marketing channels so you can delight customers, create a more positive workplace, and ensure your institution will not only grow but thrive in the evolving digital economy.
