The Wall Street Journal published a great set of money saving tips on December 31st in the Personal Journal. It reminded me of examples of other content on the Web helping consumers during the recession.
eBusiness managers are using the Web to build customer advocacy. My colleague, Bill Doyle, has written extensively on customer advocacy and its impact on companies during the economic crisis. Bill’s theory is simple and smart: customer advocacy builds trust and leads to improved customer loyalty.
The Web is the perfect channel to build advocacy, yet many companies appear to hide their most relevant content. I searched several banking, brokerage and insurance Websites today and was surprised how difficult it was to find helpful content.
Here are two examples of financial services Websites with excellent “money saving” content and challenging placement.
eBusiness managers are helping consumers with relevant content and useful tools…it simply needs better placement. eBusiness managers should make any content, tools or tips front and center for worried consumers. It will improve the customer experience, build advocacy and improve loyalty.
