What CFOs Need from Marketing:

Demonstrate your credibility and experience in your industry. Share case
studies that show how your bank can help the CFO resolve business
challenges.

Provide a cost/benefit analysis for mission critical investments required to
implement a new strategy or service.

Provide a total cost of ownership for your business solution as well as hard
cost savings.

Be clear about risks involved in implementing a business solution.

Speak the their language not your own.

Stick to the facts. Don’t waste your their time with flashy graphics, bank ads
or promotional content.

Guidelines for Developing Best-in-Class Content

Enable self-guided research. To attract and keep the attention of financial executives, it is
critical to have quality content available online to enable self-guided research by corporate
financial managers.

Provide content focused on each step in the buying cycle. Content should address beginning
issues like reviewing the status of a current bank service up through considerations when
making a final decision to purchase a new bank service.

Deliver content that diagnoses, illuminates and resolves business challenges. Typically,
financial executives initially seek content to help them diagnose and illuminate business
challenges they face. They then look for content that outlines solutions they can apply to
resolve these challenges.

Offer benchmarking tools. CFOs like to benchmark how their financials compare to peers using
tools such as key performance indicators (KPIs) and capability/maturity comparisons.


                                             Is Your Content Ready for the CFO?

Guidelines continued …
Empower measurement of quantifiable results. More than 90% of corporations require
quantifiable proof of the bottom-line benefits of bank services. CFOs seek content to help them
understand the benefits and bottom-line impact of proposed bank solutions, especially in the
middle segments of the buying cycle. And more than 81% expect the financial institution to
develop and deliver a business case for adopting a proposed banking solution.

Compare results, reduce cost of solution ownership. Later in the buying lifecycle, financial pros
seek content to help quantify the lower total cost of ownership of the solution and compare the
value of alternate solutions.

Analyze risks and highlight competitive advantage of your solution. Corporate financial
executives seek content that enables them to evaluate the relative risks of a business solution
as well as competitive advantages of one solution over alternatives. Being able to cite
significant competitive advantages of a solution is essential for winning final approval of your
bank service.

Understand at what stage a corporation stands in the buying cycle and provide personalized
communications for precisely that stage. Bank marketing and sales reps need to provide one-
to-one personalized communications and insights that can help busy corporate financial
executives quickly understand how your bank solution will help drive bottom-line
improvements.


                                               Is Your Content Ready for the CFO?
