The Bankwatch

Tracking the consumer evolution of financial services

ShoreBank blog – excellent example of a bank blog

Corporate blogging is hard.   Blogs can have the corporate name but the content needs to be personalised.  Its a tough balance.  Readers have to believe and credibility must be established.  Multiple authors is another hard one.

Well ShoreBank manage both extremely well.  I came across their blog in reflections on Net Finance.

The lead contributer is the bank economist, and SVP of Investments which obviously offers a broad background.  His contributions are balanced by other authors focussed on more retail oriented topics such as budgetting and mortgages. 

Not a bad start.

  1. Hi Colin. I’ve been a huge admirer of ShoreBank for a while now and it was a real treat to hear their story at Net.Finance East and see what they’re doing. Another FI with a real sense of mission.
