Bank Marketing Podcast: What are the best ways to hire both new and seasoned marketers?

By John Oxford

Is there a talent gap in bank marketing departments? Why do so many job posts for bank marketing positions list multiple paragraphs of skills needed juxtaposed to only a few years of experience and usually a lower salary?

In this week’s Marketing Money Podcast, I take a deep dive with Josh Mabus of the Mabus Agency into hiring both new and seasoned marketers and the talent needed for a modern marketing department to successfully execute it’s projects.

Discussed items include:

  • Why is it important that bank marketers understand how a bank makes money.
  • What skills are actually in demand and needed today vs. the job posts that ask for everything.
  • Why copywriting as well as the ability to communicate are still important, if not the most important skills.
  • Why bank marketers need to think differently to win “in the margins.”
  • Why a bank needs to be a bank and not a coffee shop, and much more, including a discussion on gas station card readers.
