Financial Marketing Kits

Financial marketing, for any organization, is about building trust with your customers. As your organization looks to the future at upcoming generations, it pays to know what their expectations are. 

For example, millennials are coming into their own (financially speaking). They're the ones generating capital, the potential homebuyers and investors, and the audience most in demand for financial organizations. How are you marketing to them effectively? How are you sharing values and relating to them?

Financial Marketing for Every Institution

Relating to a generation of people is a tall order, but there are some universal techniques that can help you connect with millennial marketing tactics. According to Digital Authority, millennials are looking for specific things when they're choosing financial services: 

  1. Incentives
    Introductory offers and better incentives than their current institution are surefire draws. 
  2. Awards and savings
    Offering awards and saving them money on fees or other things is key to marketing to millennials. 
  3. Digital services
    92% of millennials pick their institution based on the digital services they offer. Basically, if they never have to physically set foot in a place, the better. 

Additionally, millennials are big on personal referrals. Knowing someone who has had a good experience (and is willing to talk about it) is a great way to generate interest and business. One way that an organization can do that is by producing Instagrammable moments, like these marketing kits we created for Fifth Third Bank. 

In these financial marketing pieces, you can see how Fifth Third integrated their brand into the design not only by the using their color palette, but by customizing the boxes' interior tray and magnetic flap. We love how this piece is bright and bold, and best of all, prominently features the financial organization. 

Creating pieces that a customer wants to photograph isn't always the most intuitive process for financial services. Luckily, though, it is an area we have some experience in. Partner with Sunrise Packaging to start marketing to the Instagram generation. Contact our team today!

Changes in the Aseptic Packaging Market in China

In the period 2011 to 2015, analysts have forecasted a growth of 11.7%  in the Chinese Aseptic Packaging Market. The absence of cold chains in China to preserve the quality and aroma of food that extends its shelf life is the key driving factor behind this growth. Milk and yogurt are also growth factors.

The major defect behind this growth is the high capital cost that is necessary when installing aseptic packaging equipment. High demand for this packaging also brings to the table the opportunity for packaging advancements.

A History Lesson in Marketing

Marketing is an activity and process for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value. It is how products and services gain a voice for customers, clients, and businesses to know they exist. Marketing is an aspect of business that has been around for many years. Have you ever wondered how it all started though? Marketing is based on the technologies of the era, because those technologies is how marketing messages were pushed through channels. Technology has evolved rapidly and continues to change everyday. We have things like social media and Internet today that is a must use tool for marketers, but it didn’t start out that way.

If we take a step way back to the Stone Age, messages were communicated by cave paintings and carvings. Since then, our lives started to evolve and stepping towards advancement. The Renaissance Era in the 15th century produced learning and research as we stepped out of the Dark Ages. We then entered the Age of Discovery, and in 1450 is when things started to change. The Gutenberg press was created, allowing for type to be movable, which is where mail order catalogs got their start. The Industrial Revolution in the 1800s increased demand for manufacturers to market their goods. The 1900s helped develop the marketing concept as science and technology started to change. Competition, communication, advertising, and branding become key factors in business. The focus on selling also grew. Direct marketing surfaced in the 1950s and telemarketing in the 1970s.

The 1990s were characterized by the boom of the Internet, which led to a vast amount of marketing platforms. The early 2000s sparked the launches of Wikipedia, Apple iTunes Store, and Gmail. YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter followed. Today we are in the midst of the social media and mobile era. How ironic is it that we started out writing on walls to communicate and now we continue to do just that only not literally this time. The future holds potential for more advances in technology, which will be interesting to see what will happen next.
