Build Trust with Consumers at Scale with Content Marketing

Consumers no longer believe Financial Institutions act in their best interest to help meet their financial needs.

  ICAD Marketing partners with Financial Institutions to restore trust, confidence and credibility with consumers, while differentiating their brand from competitors.

"Given the crucial role content marketing plays in helping us achieve both our brand and lead generation objectives, it was helpful in identifying some of the gaps in our existing content marketing strategy and approach.

We appreciated Winston’s strategic framework for executing content marketing, which broke down content to speak to different target audiences, and also spoke to the importance of categorizing our content in a way that aligns with revenue targets." -
Kerry-Ann Stimpson — CMO, JMMB Group

The video below explains our 5 Levels of Financial Branding Success framework  we implement to achieve all of the above.

Why Work With Us

Marketing leaders of Financial Institutions often express their frustration working with agencies that take a generic approach to content marketing, mirroring that of consumer product brands. The emphasis being more on brand awareness and aesthetics, yet fails to address the need for value-added content and messaging that drives purchasing decisions for more complex buying cycles and nuanced audiences as financial services.

 

Additionally, stating these agencies do well with tactical marketing execution, such as video production, graphic design or social media management, but lack the expertise to formulate cohesive content strategies aligned with broader marketing and business goals.

This is how we are different
