Professionalism and Trust Is Vital for Banks & Credit Unions

When people arrive on your website, not knowing anything about your business, what do they think? Are they impressed and filed with trust and enthusiasm? Or do they feel wary and on-edge because your website looks dated and unprofessional.

The biggest banks and credit unions in the world have incredible websites, many of which costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Potential customers are comparing you to them and if you don’t come close they are going to be skeptical.

Trust and professionalism are possibly the two most important characteristics people look for in an organization that will be handling their money. To convey this with your website design it must be clean, beautiful and easy for customers to navigate.

The standard for websites is raised significantly each year, which is why you must make an effort every few years to tweak your site to keep up with the market. Your goal should be for new visitors to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of your site so that they are enticed by your business and start looking at your offerings with a positive frame of mind.

But even with the best website in the world you must drive traffic, it won’t magically appear without any effort. Digital marketing is a complicated process, which is why many financial institutions choose to hire us instead.

We focus our digital marketing efforts on search engine optimization, which puts your business in front of customers that are already searching for a solution to their problems. This method is far superior to interruption marketing like TV or radio ads, or the ads that you see on the side of websites.

Let Us Help You to Attract New High-Value Customers

Our digital marketing efforts are more than just creating content and hoping for the best. We are proactive about getting links back to your website via guest posts, homepage links, press releases and inclusion in both local and industry directories.

Search engine optimization is incredibly time consuming and complicated. Banks and credit unions aren’t specialized in this type of work and therefore it makes no sense for them to handle it themselves rather than outsourcing it to experts.

Questions and Answers about Banks and Credit Union Web Design and SEO

Consumers looking for a new bank or credit union value being able to access their money quickly and safely over everything else. For this reason, your website design should reflect your commitment to professionalism, trust and safety.

Most websites in the financial sphere use colors like blue, black and gray for this reason. These colors have few negative connotations, while often being used to represent age, luxury and wisdom.

In most cases we would recommend banks and credit unions to opt for a conservative design, forgoing modern styles and soft edges, instead, choosing hard corners and common colors. Most people aren't interested in an innovative bank that is trying new things, they want the same safety and assurance that they've had for decades before.

A conservative design might not be the most exciting, but it represents the reliability and responsibility that any bank or credit union should stand for. For this reason, our banks web designs will include multiple photos of ecstatic customers, representative of the future of your potential leads should they decide to keep their savings with you.

SEO or search engine optimization has been shown to increase your rankings in the search engine results pages. When people search for phrases related to banking you will appear higher, increasing brand visibility and driving traffic to your website.

The benefit of this is that you will have more targeted people heading to your site, these people are already looking for a bank or credit union and will be far more likely to convert. These hot leads are some of the most valuable, which is why bank SEO is quickly becoming one of the most important marketing tactics for financial institutions.

SEO is roughly broken down into two sections; on-page and off-page. On-page refers to the content on your webpages and the keywords that it is targeting by including them in the body of the text as well as in HTML tags.

Off-page is all about other websites linking back to your webpages, an action which Google and other search engines treat as a signal of trust and authority. Those pages which get the most links from other quality websites tend to rank higher.

Linkbuilding has been shown in studies to be the factor most correlated to high rankings. It's easy to manipulate the content on your own webpages but it's far more difficult to get links from other sites back to your own. Therefore, it's one of the most heavily weighted ranking factors in the Google algorithm.

The way that we approach SEO is the same as our approach to web design, we don't cut corners, often taking the hardest route because we believe it will lead to optimal results. Our team recognizes that every hour spent on research upfront can save us days later on, which is why we take our time when we are planning and strategizing to ensure that we are correct.

Many digital marketing firms don't feel the same way, often creating backlinks from low quality sites which are unlikely to benefit you and could even be harmful in the future. We value our clients and our ethics, which is why we only use tactics that we believe are safe for your business and will be beneficial now and in years to come.

To get more people to apply to become customers of your bank or credit union you need to drive more traffic to your site and also create a banks web design that converts at a higher percentage. Our team is well-versed in both of these factors and by having full control over both we believe that we can produce the best results.

Despite what some digital marketing practitioners would like to think, banks web design matters, it matters a lot. People don't like visiting ugly pages that are hard to browse and they certainly don't want to link to them from their own sites, making linkbuilding harder and therefore prohibiting you from ranking for competitive keywords.

When I began searching for an SEO agency last year, I received a lot of generic proposals from SEO agencies who wanted our money but didn't show any dedication to learning our niche industry. Tim, on the other hand, came to the table armed with a list of keywords to go after, goals to reach, a knowledge of what our competitors were doing, and an eagerness to understand our industry. Since then, Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business." Tim has been incredible to work with, and I'd recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire an SEO specialist.read more

“My company launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Tim B Design. They took our old website with outdated graphics, poor sales results and transformed it into a modern, incredibly attractive and sales thriving site. In 6 short months we have seen a 300% increase in sales by online traffic, a greater return than we had ever imagined. Our product keywords are up over 350% and our website can easily be found on top of any major search engine. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they were to communicate with—just real, down to earth, believable people that don't talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding our products and message to make sure the site layout was exactly what we wanted.These days, I feel that people get to know your business through your website before they even walk through your door so it better be a good first impression. Our site brings in new clients every single day. The best part is that my website is so easy to use, I am able to edit content whenever I need to. It’s become such a great tool for my business. I am so in love with my branding, I receive compliments everyday. The Tim B Design team is amazing. They are creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend them to any business.”Brad LorenceOwner, Banksystems Marketing Incread more

Tim B Design is exceptional to work with! He and his team have a great attitude, they've shown excitement in helping my business, and they are go getters! When I first contacted Tim on his website he responded to me almost immediately which was great. After our first face to face meeting I knew I wanted to work with him. I agreed to have them design my logo and build my website. In the process of doing that Tim thoroughly educated me on the importance of SEO which I knew very little about. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything while he was educating me but I decided to enter in an agreement for that too. Shortly after starting SEO they had availability to take over my social media accounts and I jumped at that opportunity. I put my full trust in them and they are doing great with all of it. Because of their work I've already seen growth in the number of sales leads generated by my website which is terrific! If you need help with any of these areas you need to contact Tim B design. Thank you Tim and Bea!read more

Without even paying a dime, Tim looked at my google analytics account and my google console account and gave invaluable free advice. Although his services were not a good fit for my needs at this point, I would highly recommend his services for SEO and high raking on google searches. Hook Agency is the way to go!read more

HOOK made the complex topic of SEO far less intimidating. They were patient and understanding with our learning curve. They worked "with" us, educating us as to where the opportunities were. They identified what "they" could do for us and even more valuable, what "we" could and should be doing for ourselves. HOOK and their style of full transparency, had us feeling comfortable immediately and ultimately feeling like we had a trusted partner working for our best interests. We look forward to our future collaboration and success!read more

Super impressed with Tim. I had no idea how to find a web developer in my budget. Even though he was well out of my price range, he still very kindly took the time to suggest a few options and and walked me through how pro web developers operate. Class act! Thank you!!

Very impressed! Long story short, our company website that was hosted elsewhere somehow lost data and went down. When the hosting company failed to do anything about it Hook Agency didn’t hesitate to help. They went above and beyond to get us back up and running. They made us feel confident and comfortable with what they were doing and explained everything each step of the way. I would definitely recommend them!read more
