    Even with the rapidly shifting financial landscape, community banks remain a pillar of the local economy. Up until recently, interest rates remained largely unchanged and favorable for business owners and buyers. But over the last 18 months, a shift has taken place that is showing us a new reality.
    In this episode, Chris interviews Chris Moya, CEO of ICBA of New Mexico. They discuss upcoming marketing trends for community banking – like showcasing the value you bring to the community, building relationships with younger customers, and finding beneficial partnerships with fintechs and marketing agencies.  It’s not about changing who you are, it’s about telling your story.
    Topics Include: 
    Why there has been a change in buying behaviors and patterns
    What the upcoming marketing areas, trends, and activities are
    How the right partnership can add value to your community bank
    How community banks can refresh their brands to add more value
    What the future of AI looks like for community banks
    Where the banking environment is moving into and evolving short- and long-term

    Before joining ICBA/NM, Chris contributed to the regulatory landscape, notably as the Director of the New Mexico Financial Institutions Division (FID), a position to which he was officially appointed in April 2019 after serving as the Acting Director for two years. His tenure at FID, which commenced in June 2011, encompassed a progression of roles, including Examiner, Mortgage Industry Manager, and Deputy Director.
    Before his regulatory endeavors, Chris forged a successful career in the mortgage industry in southern California. Subsequently, he deliberately returned to New Mexico to establish roots and raise his family.
    Chris graduated from California State University San Marcos with a bachelor’s degree in economics. He then obtained an MBA from Eastern New Mexico University and graduated from the Western States School of Banking.
    With his multifaceted background and dedication to the financial sector, Chris is poised to continue driving excellence and innovation within ICBA/NM, advancing the interests and preservation of community banks across New Mexico.

    Ep 58 - Producing Content that Actually Engages with Hollie Brown

    Ep 58 - Producing Content that Actually Engages with Hollie Brown

    Content marketing is an oft-misunderstood thing – most banks just produce blog posts about financial topics, and sometimes collect them into a periodic newsletter.  But are you really adding value to your customers with a blog post on “the difference between fixed and ARM mortgages”, when there are literally hundreds of similar blogs already online?
    In this episode, Chris and Dan chat with Hollie Brown, VP of Marketing for Coastal Community Bank.  Hollie leverages her journalism background and the bank’s network to create regular, expert-driven content for her customers. That content “engine” has even led to a system that drives email signups, and a busy calendar of in-person events – truly creating a community where customers can learn more about the bank, network with other similar customers and small businesses, and learn from experts.  And most importantly – this system actually converts readers and attendees to real customers.
    Topics Include:
    ●     How content marketing and digital marketing work together
    ●     How producing regular content is a resourceful task for local banks
    ●     How banks can leverage a content strategy to create face-to-face community events
    ●     How to determine if your content audience becomes customers
    ●     Why it’s important to involve your internal team in your content strategy
    Hollie Brown is Vice President of Marketing for Coastal Community Bank. Coastal provides personal and business banking services for Puget Sound, WA customers, and Banking as a Service (BaaS) for fintech partners. At Coastal, Hollie leads marketing strategy, brand and corporation communication, public relations, and digital marketing.
    Hollie earned a BA in Journalism from Western Washington University, an Executive Development Professional certificate from the Washington Bankers Association, a certificate in Bank Marketing from the American Bankers Association, and she is a Certified Financial Management Professional from the American Bankers Association. She is currently enrolled in Pacific Coast Banking School.
    Before joining Coastal, she was the Regional Marketing Manager for Moss Adams LLP in Seattle and the Vice President and Director of Marketing for Peoples Bank in Bellingham, WA.
