When we think about creative marketing campaigns with instant recognition value, chances are you won’t attribute many of them to a bank or an insurance company. The BFSI sector has coasted along in the past, by virtue of being an “essential” service.
However, fast forward to the era of fintech solutions, and the banking sector finds itself competing for visibility. Today, BFSI companies are pondering two fundamental questions: where did we drop the ball, and what next?
Our search for answers to these questions begins at the sector’s roots.
Across these three categories, you will notice one common buzzword: customers. Neglecting this aspect has had an adverse effect on their perception, as shown by Accenture’s 2020 survey, where a paltry 29% of consumers trust their bank to safeguard their long-term financial interests. What can the BFSI sector do to step up its game?
According to the 2020 Digital Banking Report, industry leaders agree that digital transformation, personalization, and education are the focal points for better CX going forward. With these three anchor points in mind, the shortcomings of the sector become more apparent.
Solution: Remote access banking is the need of the hour for over 50% of customers. By investing in dedicated apps that offer holistic financial services, banks can improve customer retention due to streamlined access.
Solution: The inclusion of online touchpoints like chatbots can make customers feel heard, assisting with their queries in real time. Integrating these capabilities with live customer support can streamline CX from start to finish.
Solution: Putting up short explainer videos of service offerings on your social platforms can have a dual benefit, propelling your online reach and building customer loyalty. Some finance giants have gone the extra mile and developed standalone LMS-style apps to “teach” financial concepts, like Varsity by Zerodha.
The BFSI sector currently exists in a state of flux, requiring members to adapt to changing trends and audience demands. To compete with the fintech disruptors and established brands alike, shifting to a customer-centric approach is top priority. Smarter, intensive marketing can bridge the gap to the big leagues.
