In the realm of community banks and credit unions, acquiring new customers has long been a challenging and costly endeavor. The statistics tell a sobering tale: the average acquisition cost of a new customer is $500 across financial institutions – let that sink in. Add to this the fact that there's a 15% average customer attrition rate among retail financial institutions per year, and the picture becomes even more daunting. It's clear that community financial institutions are up against substantial hurdles when it comes to customer acquisition
But there's another sobering statistic that often goes unnoticed: most financial institutions only have a 25% share of their customer's wallet. In simpler terms, even your most loyal customers only have $1 deposited at your financial institution for every $4 they actually have. If that's not enough to raise an eyebrow, consider this – 50% of accounts generate losses on average for financial institutions. Acquiring customers is difficult and expensive, but retaining them and maximizing their value can be equally challenging.
So, what's the solution? It's time for community banks and credit unions to rethink their customer acquisition strategies, value their existing customers, and explore new and innovative solutions to overcome these challenges.
