A recent survey of financial services customers found that 43% of respondents first heard about the financial services provider they are currently using from their friends or family, and 73% are not considering switching to a new provider.

These findings make customer acquisition for banks and financial services companies a particularly challenging and costly endeavor that can burn through marketing budgets in a flash. A recent Gartner survey revealed that CMOs spend nearly 40% of their budgets on acquiring new customers, making it incredibly important to have a focused acquisition strategy.
