As we shared recently, due to heavy compliance regulations financial institutions wanting to maximize the full potential of personalized video have additional challenges specifically geared towards financial marketing compliance.
Although many are starting to use video in their marketing plans, many financial services marketing, and compliance teams are worried about getting it right. It’s a tightrope walk to ensure the complex array of legislation, is respected when communicating with prospective clients or existing customers over digital channels. Here are some compliance best practices to help.
1. Truth in video marketing: Be clear, concise and honest.
It’s easy to oversell a claim or describe your latest product in overly enthusiastic terms. However, providing false information or withholding information about products or services should never happen. Making false or unsustainable claims not only violates the unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices (UDAAP) provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act, it also goes against the requirements of numerous other consumer protections laws.
2. Be consistent and easy to follow.
To get the biggest reward from your personalized video messaging campaign, prioritize consistency. Legal compliance fosters a discipline in marketing teams that carries over to style, story, language execution and monitoring across an entire campaign. By focusing on compliance and brand, businesses strengthen brand identity and generate trust with clients and customers that discourages churn and encourages conversion.

The right tool can help you deal with all the compliance issues for approval, retention, and supervision of video content. By providing templated and an automated compliance review system, your platform removes bottlenecks and the laborious work of creating individual personalized messages.
This also avoids the possibility of ‘off-message’ communication. You can create more higher quality videos without drastically increasing staff time usage, training, and cost.
4. Sell to all customers.
More videos mean more selling opportunities. But marketing and compliance review teams still have to make sure they include all the information and disclosure documentation required by law when sending videos, emails, and other outbound communication.
5. Measure and Optimize.
One of the best ways to ensure ROI – is to constantly measure and analyze user response data. Customer feedback and conversion rates, for example, provide marketers with the information they need to tweak and adjust campaigns to limit churn, achieve targeted results, and succeed at video marketing.
Analytics and a marketing feedback loop are key to help marketing and compliance teams determine what content to distribute, when, where, and how often.
