However, your most active members are seeing a lot more of your web site than your branches. Our credit union clients’ sites now average about four visits per month per member. In other words, an average midsize CU with about 20,000 members will usually get about 80,000 web site visits in a month – well over 10x the visits to one average branch. That’s 80,000 chances to get your message across and reinforce your brand in front of an active, involved audience – everywhere, any time, and on every device.
Now let’s put these numbers in a budgeting perspective, shall we?
Even with secure hosting and maintenance rolled in, an up-to-date web site offers more bang for your buck than any other piece of your marketing or infrastructure budget. So before you get too involved in picking out the carpet and wallpaper for your next branch, make sure you’re getting the most out of the branch more members see more often than any other – your web site.
