How to engage with financial services customers whenever and wherever [How-To Guide]

Posted by Päivi Harju on September 7, 2017

Disruptive innovations are reshaping the way financial services are structured and consumed. Setting up a 'virtual branch', that allows financial service providers engage with potential customers on another organisation's domain, is a great way to meet evolving customer expectations using rapidly advancing technology. By integrating real-time credit counselling seamlessly with the purchase journey of a partner site the context where the service is provided is significantly better than in any other form of digital service.

Take booking for a holiday, for instance. Many of us have a ready-made list of dream holiday destinations in our mind, but the reality is that a loan can sometimes be what is needed to bring our plans for a honeymoon, birthday celebration or annual vacation to live. Then, what better moment to be offered financial advice than when we are online browsing for travel services and comparing options?

In today's digital age customers expect to receive top-of-the-line service and user experience when and where they want it. This puts companies under pressure to find new ways to impress customers and differentiate from the competition in an increasingly populated digital marketplace. To build an environment that nurtures innovation and meets the ever-evolving expectations of customers many businesses are now collaborating with smaller tech firms (like us!).

As a part of this, in November 2015, Danske Bank launched a new service called ‘Dreams come true’ with the help of Giosg. The solution provided uses intelligent analytics to first, find potential customers in the business’s partner network and then secondly, to offer these customers an opportunity to get real-time professional advice and financial solution when and where they need it. 

How to generate seller leads on property portals? - Ask the visitor

Posted by Päivi Harju on February 15, 2017

In the past decade or so, the way people search for homes has changed drastically as more and more house-hunters now start their search by looking on one of the major property portals. Recent research in the UK showed that 47% of the population had used a property search website during the last 12 months.

Technology will undoubtedly continue to take away barriers to information, so that portal visitors have even easier and more efficient ways to search for properties that match their requirements. Innovations are also changing the role of an estate agent so that the real issue real estate companies need to address is how to be more responsive to potential customers.

Estate agents are apparently always looking to get more listings but how to find those seller leads on property portals? The answer is quite simple: try asking portal visitors if they already have a home that they need to sell before they can buy a new one.

How a car dealer creates a lock-in on car portals to boosts lead generation [Case Study]

Posted by giosg.com on January 23, 2017

Finnish car dealer Käyttöauto has experienced the radical change in consumer behavior that is almost too familiar to the automotive industry. It wasn't more than a decade ago when potential car buyers showed up on car dealers' doorstep to browse trough the selection. It was relatively easy task to find out how committed these buyers are, what kind of car they are looking for and recommend one from the dealer's selection.

Nowadays, majority of the browsing occurs on car portals. Each car from a single dealer competes against numerous car adverts from other dealers. This competition happens mostly without car dealers having any power on the outcome - the car portal's search engine determines the order in which the cars are shown. Car dealers' role is traditionally left to sit and wait for the consumer to contact them.
