ASK WHY? INVESTMENT CAMPAIGN

BRIEF

Equip and enable front line employees and managers to improve investment product sales and convert customers to opening an investment account on the App.

RESEARCH

Bankers and call centre agents were interviewed, mystery shopping calls and branch visits were conducted. We also did mystery shopping calls with Nedbank competitors. 

PROBLEM

Investment conversations at Nedbank focused on the facts and figures of the product - how much, how long, when, and what was covered in good detail. In addition there was a lot of parity in the different Investment products that competitor banks offer. 

INSIGHT

First Line Managers were not having quality conversations with clients that would enable them to match their needs to the right investment product. We needed to equip  employees to have a different conversation - a smart conversation that gets to the heart of their clients needs, dreams and aspirations - in other words, we needed to find out WHY people are investing and help them to get excited about their goals.

 

SOLUTION

Create a platform of engagement with front line bankers and employees that enables:

1. Smart client conversations

2. Smart  client / product matchmaking 

3. 100% transition to digital channels for all investment products

CAMPAIGN

Be the X Factor, ask WHY?

 

We launched the Ask Why? Campaign to all managers and front line staff that equipped them with the information, tools and skills they needed to change their behaviour.

QUOTES 

“I can see this journey and it all talks about everything we are trying to do in Nedbank around our intent and our vision. So, talking about that financial expertise, using our financial expertise to do good, this is helping us to do that. Right, by asking the why then, you know, helping clients to get to to start this dream and this vision, like the one banker that shared say that he feels by asking why he is creating, you know, his conversations with clients are now becoming so much more meaningful because he’s creating a vision for 
this client.”

“The benefits of the campaign were more than what it was intended for. It got the staff to open up in terms of role plays and we found the effect on the performance of the branch, and of the individuals improved. Our core performance has improved 200%.”

“The role plays really helped me to understand the gaps my bankers have and to then close those gaps. Everyone got involved in our branch and there was definitely an increase in leads from our multi-functionals. We got to know the client’s goal better and they felt we were really taking care of their financial wellbeing.”
