Part 1 - The Mindset of a Digital Marketer
September 6 | Lunch 12:30 p.m. | Presentation 12:45 - 1:45 p.m.

The first step in crafting a digital marketing strategy is making sure you’re thinking like a digital marketer, not just a marketer that uses digital media! There are four elements to thinking like a digital marketer: thinking socially, understanding that digital and traditional marketing complement each other, realizing the landscape is ever-changing, and using digital as a membership engagement tool. In order to change your mindset, you have to realize digital is more than just another marketing channel. Digital media has shifted the way we communicate and act as consumers. People go to social media for the perceived value they gain from it. If you want to be successful, you have to bring value to your audience.


Part 2 - Member Personas & Member Journey
September 20 | Lunch 12:30 p.m. | Presentation 12:45 - 1:45 p.m.

The ultimate goal of every marketing communication should be the right message to the right people at the right time. Anything less than that isn’t 100% effective. This includes digital media. In order to do this, you need to understand your audience and the journey they take in becoming an engaged, loyal member. Who do you want to interact with on social media? What are their characteristics? Who’s your ideal member? How do the make the decision to join a credit union? What increase engagement and loyalty? Understand these nuances about your audience and transform your organization.


Events will available be in person and via webinar. Lunch will be provided for in person attendees. There is no cost to attend the Senior Management Digital Marketing Strategy sessions. Registering for one session does not automatically register you for both sessions. Please register for one or both sessions separately.
