With so many advertising channels available, determining the most effective strategy for your marketing dollars can present challenges. Traditional bank advertising has proven highly effective for many years.

Traditional Marketing

Traditional marketing encompasses proven methods for establishing your bank’s brand presence such as television spots, print advertisements, radio spots, billboards, flyers and more. It is likely that your current bank advertising strategy utilizes these types of mediums.

Banking SEO: Essential Keyword Research & Implementation

Posted by Lindsay Borgen on February 20, 2015

So you have built a website and have an active social media presence, but what comes next? A strong Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy is vital when you want to reach your audience with engaging and captivating content. An SEO-friendly website and social media content will help your prospective audience find you through the relevant information you provide.

SEO and PPC Are Not Mutually Exclusive

Posted by strategis.intern on October 1, 2014

Last June, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) required that search engines deliberately and visibly label paid advertisements so that consumers have the fair option to click or not. In November, we saw one of Google’s first attempts to comply with the FTC’s new guidelines when search engine results showed advertisements precisely labeled “ad” in the same yellow color as the second “o” in Google.

In 2013, with the advent of Google’s new algorithm, Hummingbird, SEO strategies were forced to shift from pushing keyword- stuffed meta tags and buying back links, to producing relevant, high-quality, and well-written content, in an uproar that was startlingly called “the death of SEO.”
