Offer people a reason to meet you in person. Your online and mobile clients might not want to stay “virtual” during the entire time that they are your customers. Given a good reason, they may relish in the opportunity to meet you in person, and that’s something that an online-only bank just can’t do. Invite them for a free financial health check-up with one of your bankers or financial advisors, in person or via Skype. Of course, you’ll want to make it easy for them to schedule the check-up online. Some banks and credit unions also host “meet and greet” events specifically for their online and mobile customers, so they can talk with their leadership, lending, small business, and investment teams.These are just three of the ideas you can use to create a successful mobile marketing strategy at your credit union. If you’d like to read the rest of our ideas, visit http://info.larky.com/mobile-marketing-tips to download our Mobile Marketing Cheat sheet. Encourage questions, and make answers readily available. If one client has a question, you can bet that others have the same question. Go beyond the traditional list of FAQs on your website by offering short videos of your staff providing succinct answers to common questions. Other ideas for efficient Q&A include:Offer live chat before, during, and after banking hours. Online and mobile users are using your online and mobile banking services anytime, not just during traditional work hours, so make your chat available all the time – yes, even when the bank is open.Provide a toll free phone number just for online and mobile banking questions.Provide direct emails or direct phone numbers to key staff for mobile/online members to get answers quickly.Create a “cheat sheet” to give them quick tips and advice for whatever is relevant to them… Ten tips for saving time on our mobile banking app… Five Easy Ways to Make $100 Today… Ten free apps to make you more productive… Five free apps to make you a better parent today. People love handy lists that help them be more efficient, save money, and do more of what they love. As mobile and online banking technologies advance, credit union marketers have an increasingly daunting challenge – how to reach people that never visit your branch. A statistic from Bankrate.com suggests that nearly one-third of your members may never enter the front door of your credit union or interact face-to-face with your staff, so how can you build meaningful relationships with members who prefer to use digital channels? And just because those members don’t come into your branches, does that mean that they wouldn’t appreciate a personal relationship with their banker?Contrary to popular belief, people who bank via digital channels still value personal touches from their credit union. Indeed, these folks are real people who might actually like to know the people who keep their money safe, sound, and earning interest.As a credit union marketer, it’s your job to connect with these folks and make them feel valued because many of them will turn into your most profitable customers as they hit their peak earning and borrowing years. So what can credit unions do to build real relationships with people they may never see?Here are three tips (for our full cheat sheet of ten mobile marketing tricks visit http://info.larky.com/mobile-marketing-tips):Stop talking AT clients about YOUR stuff. If you want to start and sustain a relationship built on mutual trust, you can’t just be in it for yourself. Online and mobile clients will quickly ignore you if you talk with them only when you have something to sell. In all of your communications (online, mobile, email, and otherwise), offer help, advice, and expertise – and include your caring personality as an outreach of your bank’s personality. Make a point to keep clients up to date on bank happenings either via email or text messaging services. Better yet, tell them, “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Pancake Day (yes, this is really a holiday),” and “Happy Autumn Solstice.” And make sure that they can respond and talk with you via whatever methods they prefer – email, phone, text, social media, and in person. 32SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Andrew Bank Andrew Bank is Co-Founder of Larky, a mobile loyalty platform that drives acquisition, retention, wallet share, and interchange revenue.

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (CMC): World and Olympic champion Usain Bolt said all he needs are ‘more races’ following a rather pedestrian run heren on Saturday night to win the 100 metres at the Cayman Invitational. Running in his first race of the season, the sprint superstar strode to an average 10.05 seconds to beat American Dentarius Locke into second with 10.12, while fellow Jamaican and training partner, Kemar Bailey-Cole, finished third in 10.18. Bolt was away from the blocks smoothly to carve out a small lead at the halfway point, before coasting to the wire unchallenged. However, he was quick to concede afterwards he was not entirely pleased with the outing. “It wasn’t the best, but as long as I come out injury free, that’s the key thing,” he pointed out. “I didn’t feel as smooth as I wanted to, but as I always say, it’s hard to just come into your first race and do extra well.” All the attention fell on Bolt as the fans flocked to catch a glimpse of the sprint king, who will be targeting an unprecedented clean sweep of the sprints at a third straight Olympics in August in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 29-year-old had not run competitively since he dominated the World Championships in Beijing last August and, in the interim, had battled injury, which hampered his training programme. Bolt, who will run the 100 metres at the Golden Spike in Ostrava next week, said he would continue to improve with more competition. “It’s just more races. My coach will determine what I need to work on, but right now, it’s just more races,” Bolt stressed. “The more races I run, the better I will feel so I am just looking forward to running more races and see what happens. “I am never worried. I’ve been in worse situations. It’s just race rusty. I can tell. I could feel the difference from when you are flying from when you are not.”

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Morgan McCollow, Contributing Writer, Journal News – Spencerville, OHS.I. Distributing was started by a farmer who wanted innovative products and loved tinkering, and that’s what the company still does 40 years later.In the late-1970s, Joe Whitney, a grain farmer, was the owner of Spencerville Implement — a John Deere and a short line dealership in Spencerville. As a farmer, Whitney always looked for innovative ways to improve his farm equipment, which led to the formation of S.I. Manufacturing in 1979. This new company manufactured tools that improved the current farm equipment.As a result of the Farm Crisis of the 1980s that brought high-interest rates, low crop prices, and more negative effects to the John Deere dealership, Whitney made the decision to close the dealership in 1986.Whitney kept S.I. Manufacturing going, continuing to add on new innovative products to sell. Shortly thereafter, S.I. Manufacturing became the first U.S. distributing partner for the Schumacher Company, selling their SCH EasyCut cutting system. These parts were originally manufactured in Germany for German-made equipment and S.I. Manufacturing was able to import the parts, adapt them to fit and work with farm equipment made in the US., and distribute them to numerous farmers here in the states. Today, the company is still Schumacher’s largest distributer in the U.S.In 1993, S.I. Manufacturing was incorporated and renamed S.I. Distributing, Inc. In 2004, Joe Whitney retired and offered to sell the company to two long-time employees: Todd Keysor, who had worked for Whitney since 1984 and Dave Burgei, who began working for Whitney in 1995.Their goal is to find unique, innovative products, something that will make the equipment better. Today, with a total of 26 employees, S.I. Distributing sells their products throughout the United States.When asked what was most fulfilling about working for the business, President and co-owner Dave Burgei stated that the company doesn’t just sell a product; they try to understand and identify the problem or roadblock/issue the farmer has, whether it’s in planting or harvesting, and then recommend what would improve his specific experience.
If we needed an event to wake people up to the power of native advertising, it’s surely Yahoo’s $1.1-billion purchase of Tumblr.We’ll be talking about this a lot at AdNatively, a one-day conference I’m emceeing in New York on Thursday, May 23.So what is native advertising? A quick, simple definition: It’s an ad whose form and delivery is identical to the content environment in which it is served.The opposite, in other words, of interruptive advertising: billboards, takeovers, and big banners that take up space on the page but don’t otherwise relate.Tumblr’s Real ValueSo why did Yahoo buy Tumblr? People talk about the hip, cool vibe of Tumblr’s network of millions of blogs. Or the younger demographic Tumblr has attracted, which Yahoo desperately needs.But Yahoo doesn’t need blogs and young’uns for their own sake: It needs them because marketers need them. And the only way marketers can reach Tumblr users is through Tumblr posts, which advertisers will pay to feature on Tumblr users’ “dashboards” – the stream of posts from accounts they follow.That’s more theory than practice at this point. Yahoo hopes to turbocharge Tumblr’s revenues through its large sales force, which has been itching to have more native advertising formats to sell. Tumblr investor Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures is delivering a keynote address at AdNatively. I’m keenly interested in what he’ll have to say.Wilson is also an investor in Twitter, which has a similar native model: Advertisers can pay to promote a tweet so it’s seen by more people, or on Facebook, where sponsored posts get more prominent play in users’ News Feeds.Fuck Yeah, Native AdsNative advertising is not without its controversies. A big one is the learning curve: Marketers must master each potential advertising environment and learn its intricacies, from Tumblr users’ love for animated GIFs and the phrase “fuck yeah,” to Twitter’s peculiar language of retweets and replies to Facebook’s maddening algorithms.It’s no wonder that some give up and just buy banner ads, which can be bought and sold by machine, almost like stocks. Native-ad environments are catching up, opening up their ads to automated buying and selling through application programming interfaces, but there’s no question that native ads add complexity.Native ads seem inevitable, though, as content consumption goes mobile and social. Back in 1994, when Wired’s HotWired website sold the first banner ad, that little rectangle was arguably a native format adapted to the new medium of the Web. But Web browsing has evolved. If we’re changing how we design interactive experiences for touch interfaces and screens of all sizes, shouldn’t we change how marketers fit in, too?Full disclosure: ReadWrite and its owner and publisher, Say Media, are actively thinking about the native-advertising question. ReadWrite runs ad formats, like sponsored posts, which some observers include in the native-advertising mix. So we’re not just curious bystanders. But I promise you that ReadWrite will do its best to cover native advertising objectively and disclose when we have a stake in the game.The conversation at AdNatively promises to be a rousing debate.

It also includes a fabric grid to help focus your light beam to 40 degrees. As an added bonus, they have also included an attachable gel holder to help you get the exact lighting setup your shot requires.Pricing: $219.00 USDThe Light Dome Mini IIWant the perfect portable lighting companion for a shallower, wider spread of light?
