21 May Defining Marketing Buyer Personas for Your Community Bank

When it comes to choosing a bank, we all want safety, stability, and support. But at varying stages of life, those terms mean something different to everyone. For a parent, financial stability means the ability to open a college savings fund for their child. To a young married couple, it might mean securing a low mortgage interest rate. To a business owner, stability means access to low-risk investment options. And for millennials, stability depends on flexibility. Institutions that offer easy, on-the-go banking via mobile app will have a distinct advantage with this demographic. Behind every checking account, there is a person. And if you can unpack that person's concerns and motivations, you can earn their loyalty and trust as a customer. In marketing, we call this process "buyer persona development." We begin by profiling customers based on their shared traits and objectives. Then, we use those profiles to create effective, personalized marketing campaigns for your business.
