There are several platforms that come close, particularly marketing automation systems, but you'll still need to supplement that system with some additional programs to round out your digital marketing toolkit.

On several occasions, I have had the privilege of speaking to credit union or bankers groups and marketing professionals on the topic of unlocking YOUR digital marketing formula.   I emphasize "your" because everyone shouldn't use the same digital tactics. What works for one business may not work for another. We preach this message to our clients, including our many bank and credit union clients. Despite being in the same industry, the location of these financial institutions and what they're ultimately trying to achieve can vary.  To figure out the right formula, we need to break down who your specific customer is, what THEIR goals are, and how you can help them achieve those goals.  (See the theme starting to develop? This is about them, not about you.) We kicked off a past workshop session by showing some industry trends (who doesn't love to take a peek at what everyone else is doing?). With marketing expenses representing around 7 to 12% of total revenue, investing in the wrong strategies is a costly mistake.
