Posted by Shelby Cutright on May 29, 2019

In a Nutshell:  In financial services, a key factor in converting a customer is the trust engendered in that customer through a positive relationship with a loan officer or other external-facing employee. Although social media engagement can help build that trust, the ability to sell financial products doesn’t necessarily translate into social media marketing skills. Institutions partnering with  Gremlin Social  gain a centralized platform for leveraging the social space. Through Gremlin Social, marketing professionals control social messaging, protect the organization from online missteps, and free loan officers and other direct sellers to generate a larger bottom line.

Out: Social Influencers; In: Social Selling

Posted by Doug Wilber on February 26, 2019

This article was originally posted to ABA Bank Marketing.

When it comes to modern advertising, subtlety is everything. Think about it: Consumers are bombarded with 2,617 media touchpoints every single day, and they’re getting better at identifying and ignoring marketing messages they deem irrelevant or just plain annoying.

In your quest to grab consumers’ attention in this distraction-heavy media landscape, you might be tempted to partner with social media influencers to review and recommend your offerings.
