ARE YOU READY TO GIVE YOUR FINANCE, BANKING, OR INSURANCE PROFESSIONALS THE EDGE THEY NEED TO SUCCEED IN THEIR CAREERS AND LIVES?

Today’s customers are more skeptical and knowledgeable and have more choices than ever before when it comes to the finance, banking, and insurance industries. Today’s customers expect nothing less than the best in terms of reliability, service, and trust when it comes to their finances. It’s imperative that their investments are in good hands and that the professionals involved are well-respected and reliable.

A finance, banking, or insurance professional’s first impression is crucial to establishing these traits. Professionals who convey these characteristics early on give their clients a sense of which customer experience to expect—whether it’s an investment opportunity or an insurance claim.

Customers will form conclusions about a financial institution, bank, or insurance company based on how it presents itself, beginning with the professionals who are interacting with them. The perception of the professionals working in this field is crucial because it creates a lens through which all future interactions will be seen. 

Whether an industry professional works as an advisor, a bank manager, a claims adjuster, or an insurance agent, the way they come across will directly affect how customers perceive their transactions. Regardless of whether a professional works for a large, regional, or local bank, credit union, brokerage, mortgage, or insurance firm, customers are always anxious about transactions. At their core, financial services, banking, and insurance often rely on transactions involving large amounts of money. The professionals’ responsibility is to help these clients realize that their finances are in good hands.

Are your professionals aware of how crucial their role is to the company’s bottom line? Are they aware of the different stages of the customer journey and how critical their interactions are at each stage? Professionals working in finance, banking, or insurance may not realize how much their communication style, behavior, and digital footprint influences customer decisions.

If professionals in these industries are to ensure a positive experience at every step of the customer journey, they must realize the critical influence of first and lasting impressions. They need to understand how assumptions based on these impressions can lead to a positive or negative outcome of any transaction.

The appearance of professionals in these industries and their demeanor, attitude, and communication style all affect how prospective and current clients view them and, by extension, how they see the products or services offered. Their personal reputation is just as important as the reputation of the company.

Financial, banking, and insurance professionals are well trained in product and service knowledge, but when it comes to their personal qualities, they may not realize the significant impact they have on the outcome of transactions. They need to ensure they convey trust, reliability, and competence at every stage of the customer journey if they want customers to feel confident about their transactions and experiences with companies.

Customers are bombarded by the advertisements, messages, and promotions of companies every day, making the human touch an essential factor when they decide which company to choose. If customers have a choice between two products or services, they will most likely buy from a company that makes them feel comfortable and cared for—the one that made a better first and lasting impression.

Whenever substantial amounts of money are involved, people need more than a good feeling to do business. A poor first or lasting impression will make people hesitant to trust you with their money.

Future customer behavior, such as whether they make repeat purchases, is affected by the perception the customer has of these professionals. Providing a positive customer experience from the first moment can help turn first-time customers into long-term partners and even customer advocates that recommend the company's services or products to others.

A customer's perception is shaped by their interactions with the professionals they interact with, both positively and negatively. Unfortunately, customers often prioritize a negative experience over a positive one out of fear or frustration about financial losses. If a customer feels unprofessionally or inappropriately treated throughout their customer journey, first impressions will be irreparably tarnished, and they tend to share the bad experiences rather than the good ones with others.

The customer experience in these industries is becoming increasingly digitized, such that software and data drive much of the customer experience. Most of the time, customers' first contact with finance, banking, or insurance professionals will be through the internet, or via email, chat, or phone. Despite never having the chance to meet their customers in person, professionals need to project confidence, knowledge, and sincerity instantly along every channel through which they communicate. Even in this digitized world, professionals cannot forget the personal touch and human element their prospects still value.

Customers observe the professionals working in those industries during their daily lives far beyond the confines of the office. They need to be aware that how they behave, how they appear, how they communicate, and how they use social media can affect how their business transactions are perceived.
