Thu, 6:30 PM TO 8:30 PM Knobbe Martens Law Firm
General PublicFinance


Financial services brands that embrace new customer behaviors and shift their marketing strategies accordingly are poised for growth and increased marketshare. Our panelists will explore how firms can optimize customer experiences and differentiate from competitors through key marketing initiatives that impact the bottom line. An audience Q&A will follow the panel discussion.

Customer Journeys
Mapping out all the steps customers take when interacting with your company can help improve the overall client experience by exposing barriers they face and identifying how they feel during interactions with products and services. Customer journeys can also shed light on broader business opportunities.

Personalized, data-driven marketing campaigns
Personalization is complex and hard to pull off given the vast amount of data marketers must contend with and privacy concerns. But today’s consumers expect companies to understand their unique needs, and personalized marketing experiences lead to higher conversion rates and more trust and loyalty.

Content Strategy
More content isn’t always better or particularly effective. Content should help achieve business objectives such as branding, community building, public relations, market research, customer service, and lead generation. Being smart with your content strategy and execution allows marketers to make the best of limited resources.
