Over the past several years, checking deposit growth—the most fundamental source of revenue for community banks and credit unions—is declining. While evolving technology, stagnant population growth and other environmental forces played parts in the decline, you are also losing potential deposits to big bank strategies of cash offers and promises of high interest rates. These strategies are expensive to execute and have very low retention rates, but they continue to open new accounts that could have been yours.
Velocity’s Invitation Checking® System is an automated strategy driving new deposits using a data-driven approach of digital referrals, social media marketing, direct mail and digital marketing. We help you win account holders away from the big banks and generate profitable new accounts and their deposits that stay with you longer.
- You could increase the revenue, longevity and lifetime value of your accounts?
- You could leverage a comprehensive digital strategy to win accounts away from the competition?
- Such a program delivered a 5 to 1 ROI or greater?
Declining deposit trends means that you’ll need to win account holders away from the competition. Our strategies are designed to help you succeed in that effort.
