Blog: With-Share-of-Wallet Strategies, “God is in the details”: Even consumers who like to unbundle their financial purchases would be hard-pressed to find better checking, credit card, auto loan and mortgage products than those offered by credit unions. When special pricing and rewards are added for those who use multiple core products, the value proposition against even national competitors can be compelling. Yet, year after year, credit unions slice through member data to find that the penetration rates of many products within the member base are moving glacially. What’s missing? asks Steve Williams, a principal with CUES Supplier member Cornerstone Advisors, Inc., in this CUES Skybox blog post.
Industry experts from Cornerstone Advisors will lead CUES School of Product and Channel Management™, July 18-19 in Seattle.
