Data Analytics
Data analytics are now being
used as predictive tools. Community
bankers can employ data mining to
improve their bottom line perfor-
mance. No need to pay for expensive,
demographic research when deter-
mining where to put a new branch.
Your ACH data can tell you that. Just
figure out where most of your custom-
ers live and where they shop and put a
branch there.
What do your customers buy, how
often, from whom, and for how much?
Mobile/digital wallets affect where
people shop, what they buy, and how
much they pay. They help determine
whether or not it’s the right product, at
the best price, and the most appropri-

Activity-based marketing is defined

calls Generation Y 2.0 who are Money
Hawks. These 25- to 34-year-olds
manage a complex portfolio of finan-
cial products and have their biggest
earning potential over the next 10 to
15 years. As they age, they will gener-
ate an increasing number of bills and
will want control over their finances
to make it easier to stay within their
budgets. “You are perfectly positioned
to be what Generation Y needs.”
Going forward, banks, Wether-
ington said, must master their data
and provide personalized ads for the
bank’s products and services across
all channels. Banks also can plan to
curate “partners” who may use the
bank’s ad engines to serve customers
with relevant ads that can be one-
clicked to acquire a product or service.
In short, banks can plan to earn ad fee
income while wearing a white hat.
