Make It Happen
77.7% of financial institutions use digital signage to promote products and services, but only 27.3% use digital signage for financial education. This is a major opportunity for differentiation, as any expert marketer knows education is the fastest way to earn trust, build a relationship, and position your brand as a thought leader. Even more so in the financial industry, leading with financial advice and education helps shift from transactional to advisory relationships.
Use fun interactive games and quizzes to attract clients to the interactive signage and then use the tools to teach them something about how your financial institution can help them along life’s financial journey. It’s way more fun and meaningful than just looking at rates!
