    • 1.0 Executive Summary Wells Fargo is the proven leader in the banking industry, successfully withstanding financial turmoil and uncertainty over the years. It holds a secure place in the customer’s perception as the bank of security and trust. Developments in recent years have dramatically changed the industry landscape. With the explosion of the Internet, new security threats, expanding markets, and a generation of consumers vastly different from any Wells Fargo has serviced in the past, the challenge to maintain a competitive edge is daunting. By enlisting the burgeoning generation of new banking customers into its family, Wells Fargo will once again weather the storm and sail through intact. From our extensive research we found Wells Fargo’s major competitors along the Front Range include Bank of Choice, Bank of the West, Key Bank, Chase and U.S. Bank. These banks all offer their customers extremely similar incentives. Free checking accounts with $50 or $100 offers attached were the most common promotion. These Front Range competitors try to express a local feel for their customers. Our competitive analysis reveals these financial institutions, including Wells Fargo, offer a rather homogeneous group of products (see page 3).
    • 1.0 Executive Summary The target market analysis provided us with a key insight- that our target market wants financial guidance. The majority of our card from a selection for four businesses whose products fits their lifestyle. Earning a gift card is as simple as one, two, three “swipes”. target market is at crossroads.

Therefore, the implementation of this strategy will bring Wells has created a promotional campaign that will drive customers into Wells Fargo banks. The promotional strategy will bolster the image Fargo up to speed with the swiftly changing markets, keeping their competitive edge sharp. of trust and security in the target market’s perception by forging a strong relationship between the consumer and Wells Fargo. Our strategy consists of a loyalty card program. An opportunity analysis indicates the banking industry has the need for a loyalty card. Research states that, “86 percent of American shoppers use some form of store card or discount card” (Bosworth, 2005). The campaign will encourage the target market to sign up for a FREE Vault Loyalty card while simultaneously receiving personal financial mentoring. The card provides incentives to increase foot traffic into physical Wells Fargo locations. In this campaign, Wells Fargo will focus on encouraging interaction between consumers and bankers by offering customers the Vault Loyalty card that will allow them to “secure” a $50 gift
    • 2.0 Promotion Opportunity Analysis 2.01 Competitive Analysis Representing trust and reliability, the Wells Fargo six-horse 2 stagecoach has been a banking industry icon since 1852. Today, however, many associate the stagecoach with outdated technology and feel that Wells Fargo has not kept pace with the changing times. To compete with contemporary banks while driving foot traffic into Front Range locations, Wells Fargo must establish a more interactive, updated approach that appeals to consumers in the 18 to 34 age group. Major Competitors Wells Fargo’s major competitors along the Front Range include: Bank of Choice, Bank of the West, Key Bank, Chase and U.S. Bank. KeyBank

    • 2.0 Promotion Opportunity Analysis What Wells Fargo’s competitors say about themselves With slogans that emphasis community and “you” the customer, Wells Fargo’s competitors market themselves as banks that focus on customer service and put the customers first. Bank of Choice is a Colorado-based community bank. It 4 positions itself as a bank that provides a unique style of customer- driven relationship banking. The message Bank of Choice sends to customers is, “Regardless of the location you’re visiting, you’ll always receive the same one-on-one attention you get from your
    • favorite teller at your hometown Bank of Choice.” This message, coupled with the tagline: “The choice “you” can bank on,” instills in customers a feeling of importance. Bank of the West claims a passion for customers and customer service evidenced by its high degree of personalized attention. It promotes involvement with the community and emphasizes the “local” factor, security, and service. Its tagline: 2.0 Promotion Opportunity Analysis “Local bank. Local values,” lets customers know it values the community and those in the community. Like Bank of the West, Key Bank wants customers to know it is community-oriented. Key Bank’s website details community programs like “Neighbors Make The Difference®.” This is a program Key Bank employees started as a way to contribute and give back to the community. Key Bank’s tagline, “Key is Community. Advertising and Promotions Community is Key” is a clever way to promote itself and highlight its Wells Fargo’s competitors entice customers to open community involvement. 5 checking accounts with a variety of promotions. U.S. Bank, like Bank of Choice, wants to convey the idea that Bank of Choice is currently advertising Choice Rewards customers are of the utmost importance. This is evidenced by its Checking, which entitles customers to earn a bonus rate of 3.05% high usage of the word “you” throughout its website pages. One of APY on checking accounts that carry a balance between $0 and the main places the word “you” appears is on the page that details $35,000 with an additional .49% APY to be paid on balances over U.S. Bank’s checking account options.

Key Bank is currently running its “Rake It In” promotion. This promotion offers new (implied but not stated) customers up to $225 for banking with Key. Customers 2.0 Promotion Opportunity Analysis must open a qualifying checking account and enroll in Key Bank Rewards by November 20, 2009. In addition, customers must make one debit card transaction and a combination of two direct deposits and/or automated payments each of $100 or more by January 22, 2010.

In the article, “A Bank for Every Block,” Eric Dash writes that Opportunities Not Being Pursued a decade ago most big banks were shedding their branches and Many businesses use loyalty or rewards cards to increase steering customers away from visiting banks in person; encouraging awareness and promote brand loyalty among customers.
