How to Leverage Facebook for Banking?

The big Facebook IPO is history. Some people think it has been a disaster. Personally, I believe that it has been a big success for Facebook. May be the stock is overvalued. But the company has now lots of firepower to gear up its marketing engines, try out new business models and generally become a huge factor in online marketing.This means that banks should think long and hard about the role of Facebook (and other social media) in their marketing strategy. It will be an indispensable building block for every marketing and sales strategy of every bank worldwide targeting private cutomers.

Here is a snippet from our latest report on Social Media in Banking 2012:

“Our analysis gave lots of reasons to think that almost universally banks have neither a comprehensive social media strategy nor a dedicated team to serve all media in an integrated manner. Little better than having no social media presence at all, is sending conflicting messages across various channels or showing no activity for weeks. These mistakes can easily be avoided by establishing a dedicated social media team that ensures the message the company wants to send is communicated in an appropriate way across all channels.”

You can get the whole report here. Over the next weeks we will give some more peek previews of our analysis with regard to Social media.
