MarketBridge Insider, FinServ Edition (January 2019)
Happy New Year! I hope you got to relax and reload a bit over the Holidays.
With nearly $100B in investment in 2018, FinTech is growing very fast! Customer buying behavior changes more slowly. And existing Go-to-Market models are slowest to change. This results in GTM “Friction” for many Financial Institutions – resistance forces that inhibit the customer experience between incumbent companies and their customers. In Eliminating Go-to-Market Friction in 2019, we discuss five key leverage points for reducing that friction.
If you haven’t already, please check out our Growth Planning Model and Revenue Growth Calculator (beta version) to evaluate your 2019 alternative growth scenarios in more detail. The goal is to help executives understand how changes to variables—including the starting account set and ongoing relative emphasis—will impact future growth.
For those of you in Health Insurance, we invite you to revisit our latest Market Intelligence Report from our DigitalPulse™ team that surfaces critical conversations between consumers, payers and providers around their primary concerns, clear market leaders, and pressing topics.
We also went through our blogs for 2018 to see which were the most popular. Here are the top 5!
Lastly, please consider completing our 2019 Sales Enablement Trends, Challenges and Opportunities Survey. Once the data is collected, we will report back to survey respondents with the overall results in the form of our 2019 Trends Report. Thanks in advance.
Enjoy! Here’s to much success in 2019.
