16% of millennials switched from traditional banks to community banks, credit unions, and online-only banks in 2016.
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) December 20, 2016
Go Local Interactive has just released their report and analysis of marketing trends in the Banking & Financial sectors for the 2016 fiscal year. The report highlights trends over the past 10 years and specifically how much has changed in the past year alone. Through their research, Go Local has uncovered industry trends and shifts within the past year and analyzed these changes to forecast where the industry is growing in 2017.
Much of the focus of banks is shifting to mobile devices and millennials. However this shift has nuances that banks must be mindful of, such as consumer trends that are unique to the banking sector. Many banks don’t have a solid brand that is consistent on all platforms and across every aspect of their marketing, digital or otherwise. Yet “as much as 90% of traffic to bank websites comes from branded searches.” This high level of brand recognition is what is necessary for banks to survive and thrive in the digital age. This and many more consumer insights and industry statistics are detailed within the report.
The report combines all sorts of information to give a better idea of the big picture in a format that is digestible and actionable, such as what kinds of services need to be available online and how to market these services to various consumer groups. The report also incorporates national banking trends and economic forecasts in terms of branch locations, types of services, website trends, advertising and more. The report highlights how banks are shifting to be focused on new consumer desires, as more than “16% of millennials switched from traditional banks to community banks, credit unions, and online-only banks in 2016.” Understanding these nuances with specific consumer demographic groups while also tying in larger industry trends will be key to not only surviving, but also increasing revenue in 2017.
