How could Bankjoy move prospects down the funnel
and close deals more quickly?

For financial institutions, building buy-in to invest in digital transformation can take a long time. Bankjoy’s Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, Shaw Taylor, needed more ways to spark engagement and nurture prospects toward closing sales.

Making the business case in various ways was essential. Bankjoy wanted to build credibility for the brand and the solutions with client success stories, and thought leadership on topics of interest to the market.

Bankjoy knew Beyond the Arc could help, based on our deep knowledge of financial services and fintech innovation.

The biggest thing Beyond the Arc does really well is understand what I’m looking for. Really good writers who understand the banking and credit union space makes for quick turnaround.

Strategic content marketing focused on
the needs of target markets

To drive sales engagement, Beyond the Arc partnered with Bankjoy to develop a monthly content calendar of topics for blogs and whitepapers.

For content creation, we proposed strategic topics that addressed key issues faced by Bankjoy’s target audiences. Then we built out content with research and financial copywriting.

Content aimed to highlight industry challenges that are being solved with the latest digital banking capabilities. No hard or soft sell, just underscoring the need for (and advantages of) solutions like Bankjoy.
