Grow Your SEG Base With LinkedIn

I’ve never come across a credit union marketing or business development professional that I didn’t like at some level.


Credit Union people are just friendly. They care about their members and their community. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be working at a credit union, they’d be at a bank. (while that was meant as a joke, we all know it is true to some level)

Third Degree hears from many credit union marketers and business development officers asking for help with increasing their community charter opportunities and SEG base. We don’t have to tell you why this is so important for credit unions. Your charter is your current and potential membership base. The more members you have, the more you grow and the more you are able to help your members and in turn, your community. And that’s what being a credit union is all about. People. Community.

While we believe that telling your story in a unique and compelling way with inspiring materials is the best way to show you are a great organization worth supporting and joining, there are other ways that can support your brand, products and services while helping you reach your goals.

Before we go into the “what’s” and “how’s” let’s get something out on the table: credit union people are humble and they have a hard time tooting their own horn. (just ask @CU_Cheerleader, Amy Lawrence) Credit union professionals  struggle with touting the “credit union difference” to the audiences they would like to reach. Third Degree helps credit unions with this every day by developing strategic campaigns targeted to not only increasing that membership base but share of wallet as well. And we’ve seen our credit union clients experience great success. But I’m not here to talk about us. I want to talk about you.

A great, easy additional tool to help increase your SEG base is social net-working. Specifically, LinkedIn. LinkedIn is growing by leaps and bounds more and more each day and is becoming a utilized resource among business professionals. Many of you are probably already on LinkedIn and that’s great. But are you utilizing it to achieve your credit union’s goals? Are you using LinkedIn to help grow your SEG base? You should be and we’re going to show you how!
