Key Areas

Bank marketing is awash with new trends, services, and buzzwords, but without strong fundamentals, your bank isn’t ready to grow.

We help banks grow organically, support mergers/acquisitions and build platforms for de novo entries through a common sense approach that yields outstanding results.

Foundation

IS YOUR MARKETING BUILT ON A STRONG FOUNDATION?

Brand is the cornerstone of your bank’s marketing foundation and is the essence of your institution. Your logo, branch design, website and even how a branch smells are components of your foundation. While a logo is the key visual component, your brand extends well beyond aesthetics. It’s truly how a client feels when they think about you. We build strong foundations that not only create word of mouth; they inform the narrative your client uses.

What We Do:

  • Discover your bank’s driving values
  • Align messaging around brand values
  • Translate brand values into visual elements
  • Tell a better story with consistent messaging
  • Establish an easy-to-follow marketing plan

Specific Services

  • Marketing Strategy
  • Brand Development
  • Logo Design
  • Narrative Focus
  • Brand Expansion

Attract

MOVE FROM IMPRESSION TO ACTION

The fuel that drives successful marketing is simple: new clients. Clients can’t open an account if they don’t know who you are. Through deep expertise across multiple media sources, such as television, geo-targeting and digital advertising, we can cast a wide net—targeting those people who will make the best client at your bank.

What We Do:

  • Help build usable data intelligence
  • Use strategy/data to create compelling advertising
  • Create and place winning multi-media campaigns
  • Analyze and improve programs over time
  • Equip and enhance social media assets needed to connect with your social channels
  • Work alongside you, developing content that keeps new and existing clients excited and engaged

Specific Services

  • Brand Identification
  • Advertising Strategy
  • Advertising Placement
  • Content Marketing
  • Digital and Traditional Advertising
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Geo-Targeting

Onboard

ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

Too many institutions attract new clients and forget that these new clients don’t know everything they need to about their new banking relationship. The best banks are not only comfortable with who they are; they make sure their clients know, too. We build onboarding processes and materials that pay dividends by strengthening the relationship where it matters most—in the beginning.

What We Do:

  • Enhance new client relationships
  • Deepen client interaction over time
  • Determine the best combination between staff, collateral, and software
  • Streamline information gathering across all departments and programs
  • Help you marry your in-branch and digital experience

Specific Services

  • In-branch/Digital onboarding enhancement
  • Collateral Development
  • Surveying and response
  • Marketing Automation

Nurture

DEEPER ENGAGEMENT

The difference between cross-selling and nurturing a relationship is not just a semantic distinction. Cross-selling is pushing a product you want to sell. Nurturing is proactively understanding your clients’ needs and fulfilling those needs. Build strong client relationships by continually offering the client value. Through better data organization and marketing automation, we can help you connect your clients with the new products they need instead of the promotion of the month.

What We Do:

  • Identify product gaps and help you deliver the right service at the right time
  • Improve efficiency and opportunity with marketing automation
  • Help you tell your story

Specific Services

  • Marketing Automation
  • Surveying and response
  • Database enhancement/usage
  • Client/Product matching

Recapture

RETAINING DEDICATED CLIENTS

If you’re spending marketing dollars, you’re likely tracking the return on your investment. But are you doing everything to maximize the efficiency of your marketing dollars? When you pay to attract a prospective client to your website, are you remarketing to that person later? If they fail to complete a product application, are you reengaging them via conversational, high-value emails? We make certain a prospect has every chance to convert into a client.

What We Do:

  • Improve attraction budget efficiency
  • Prevent abandonment in product applications
  • Prevent attrition by improving client loyalty

Specific Services

  • Retargeted Marketing
  • Marketing automation
  • Follow-up on abandoned forms

What We Do

We use a lot of disciplines and skills to produce successful work for our clients, but high-blown rhetoric is not one of those disciplines. To put it simply, here are the things we do help you grow your bank.

Each bank we see is different and needs it’s own unique solution.

  • Strategy
  • Brand
  • Website
  • Content
  • Data
  • Digital
  • Video
  • Compliance

    Strategy

    To finish well, we must start well; that’s why Mabus Agency begins every project with an exhaustive look at overall strategy. We work closely with you and your staff to understand your goals, define your opportunities and build a plan to navigate any obstacles to help you accomplish your mission.

    This process builds guiding documents that will inform every marketing effort. We keep this in simple, understandable and executable terms—and make certain it evolves as your bank grows.

    Brand

    Your brand is more than just a logo. Your brand is a language unto itself, made up of symbols, colors, words, stories, and even the public perception that represents the heart of your organization. Your brand exists on business cards, web pages and in your branches. But your brand also exists within clients’ experiences and the story they tell others about your bank. We help you find and express the truest story of your bank in every client interaction.

    Website

    Your website is your bank’s most visited location. It’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s there when your client has a great need, but your physical branch isn’t open, accessible or convenient. Are you certain your website performs to the same standards as your tellers, lenders and other bankers? We make sure your website and all of its transactional components deliver beyond expectation. From user experience to security, we are experts in creating winning interactive experiences for your clients.

    Content

    Relevant. Informative. Compelling. All are aspects of a content strategy that can attract new clients by enhancing your SEO efforts and convert clients due to the financial literacy you provide. We help institutions plan, write and distribute groundbreaking content. Mabus Agency’s content team helps you develop and execute a process that will fill your website with everything from insightful financial content to light-hearted fare, all based on the terms your clients are searching for most.

    Data

    You have the best data in the world. But are you using it? You have the unparalleled ability to understand your clients in ways that no other industry can. The trouble is most banks don’t or can’t use this data. From start to finish, we help banks strategically access and organize this data into a usable system to match clients with products and services they will value the most. The process of aggregating, transforming and acting on data might seem intimidating, but Mabus Agency helps add data and automation to your everyday marketing efforts.

    Digital

    You must meet your potential clients where they are. We help you do this through building, creating and managing an effective digital platform. We understand how to attract and convert clients through purchased-media advertising and incredible interactive experiences driven through your website. Whether it is digital display ads, geo-targeting, marketing automation to more traditional television buys, we ensure your advertising efforts are coordinated, targeted and where possible, completely automated to generate new clients—directly selling products and services through an enhanced, comprehensive digital platform.

    The most creative and innovative marketing campaign will never be seen if it doesn’t pass compliance. We understand.
