Performance Marketing Driven by Content

Content Marketing for the Financial Services Industry

OverviewThe Banking and Financial Services sector faces several challenges in content marketing.

  • It is a highly regulated industry. It's easy to get lost in what can't be said or done, rather than focussing on what can.
  • It can be difficult to make it interesting. Your average Joe Bloggs is not apt to get excited about financial statements and reports - he's more likely leery of financial services companies and their claims and offers.

Add to this lack of trust and basic financial education among consumers, the complexity of the sales process, and the difficulty of brand differentiation and the picture begins to look rather involved.
Even so, there are many stand-out examples of great content marketing by financial services companies - Open Forum from Amex*1 is a model of this kind.

Leveraging Content Opportunities in the Financial Space

By and Large, the how-to's of Content Marketing are common to all industries:

  • Get Executive buy-in
  • Prove effectiveness with small experiments before scaling up
  • Hire great storytellers

Having said that, the financial industry has some unique advantages:

Data: Banks and financial services companies are great at data. Compared to other industries, they collect and preserve large amounts of information. This data can be used creatively in different kinds of content such as infographics.

Education: The lack of even basic financial knowledge can be seen as an obstacle. But in content marketing terms, it is a huge opportunity to build relationships with prospects.
