Credit Unions Finding Creative Ways to Refresh Branches
Credit unions are seizing upon industry conditions to lure members away from big banks. In an effort to promote their brand, credit unions are exploring new ways to strengthen community ties and inspire loyalty to their branches.
Scott Dustin, President of Nova Retail Group, consults with credit union executives nationwide on ways to turn their current spaces into true retail banking environments.
“There is a steady demand from credit unions for assistance in refreshing their branches. Clients often understand that something needs to be done to bring all in-branch Marketing efforts together, but need help bringing ideas to life. Credit unions also understand the importance of using their brand to strengthen community ties. We have several clients embracing signature walls and environmental window graphics to refresh their branch network.”- Scott Dustin, President of Nova Retail Group.
Graphic programs for credit unions now often include signature walls that help connect emotionally with members while augmenting a cohesive brandscape. Cost effective environmental graphic treatments strengthen community ties subtly. Organizations are exploring various options to add character to their branch network. By installing Welcome, Community and Charitable Walls that highlight local images and efforts, credit unions strengthen customer loyalty while reinforcing their brand recognition on a regional level. These additions help retain and grow membership.
Credit unions also understand that a compelling brand presence does more than just resonate with members. It assists in building relationships between employees and managers with the public. As part of a complete program, window treatments continue to be a cost effective way to promote the brand, cross sell services, and encourage program participation. Branches should use every available area to promote their brand and draw in street traffic. Exterior windows can be used like billboards with graphics to create impact and amplify street presence. Creative artwork and messaging can easily be applied to exterior branch windows on a tight budget.
“The days of just having a brochure rack full of various service pamphlets are over. Credit unions want a true retail banking experience with brand channels working in unison”, Scott explains.
Nova Retail Group partners with clients to create complete and unique experiences for their customers. Offering services across many disciplines makes Nova distinctly qualified to work with clients from the creative process through delivery and installation in areas of environmental graphics, retail merchandise, brand engagement programs and design build projects.
