Literature Review
Literature Review
Banking Sector Marketing Strategies :
According to R.K. Uppal, 2010, due to a major turnover in Banking industry
there has been a significant increase in competition among the banks and this
sector is facing various challenges like customer education and awareness,
training for effectiveness of employees and their retention, adoption of
frequently transforming technology and rural marketing and gaining the trust
and confidence of the clients and customers
Manoj Pk, 2015 states that there should be continuous marketing research and
customer survey for the identification of ever-changing customer's needs and
developing new products according to their need. This marketing research and
customer surveys help to identify different market segments and the needs of
each segment.
Literature Review
Relationship marketing in banks :
In this highly competitive era in the financial sector especially the banking sector there's
a high demand for the customized products and services demanded by the customers for
the fulfillment of their needs. It has become essential to have long term strong
relationships with your existing customers rather than making new customers because
they will cost you more than the already existing customers. To help building strong
customer relationships, reducing operating costs, and obtaining new market segments,
there should be a transition from traditional marketing strategies like transactional
marketing strategy to relationship marketing strategy (Rupali, Agrawal & Matta, 2015).
Literature Review
Digital Marketing in Banks :
The growth of digital marketing depends on effectively adapting to change, improving
customer insights, then turning them into improvements in customer experience and
service. It also depends on engaging and building communities with target customers,
improving the effectiveness of marketing to be heard and remembered, and adding
creative channels to communicate value propositions (Shabgoo, Gilaninia, & Mousavian,

Conclusion & Recommendations
This research involves an analysis of small data sets, so due to this,
it provides no or little basis for generalizing it to a wider audience.
Also, this research is limited to a certain type of bank i.e
agricultural; having its environment in which it’s operating hence it
cannot be generalized to any other Bank. The tools and techniques
used in this research are only applicable to this research, hence
cannot be used in any other scenario. As the dynamics of the
Banking market keep on changing, the reasons identified from this
research are not applicable for longer duration; hence the research is
Conclusion & Recommendations
• From the strategic finding, it is evident that the business plan and market
plan do not support each other, hence proper and effective integration is
necessary to achieve organizational goals.
• Target market strategy also needs to be revised as the bank is shifting its
operation to commercial banking hence an updated target market strategy
is vital for growth.
• ZTBL also needs to consider proper metrics for its marketing evaluation to
improve the quality and performance of the marketing department.
Digitalization in marketing is still considered an afterthought here in
ZTBL, hence ZTBL needs to apply effective digital marketing strategy in
their overall marketing strategies to sustain and grow itself in this highly
competitive and digital banking environment.
• Digital marketing ZTBL is not able to capitalize on various digital touch
points in which customers of this generation largely engage with a
business hence leading to a huge loss of potential customers.
Conclusion & Recommendations
• There is no one particular reason that is contributing towards the failure of
the marketing strategy of ZTBL instead the whole marketing has to
undergo a lot of vital changes, to sustain itself as the competition and
quality of competition has increased.
• the failure reasons are outdated target marketing strategy which leads to
poor differentiation and positioning strategy as well, no presence of digital
marketing strategy.
• There is also weak metrics used for the evaluation of the marketing
department which also lead to the decrease in productivity of the overall
business plan as marketing contributes, complements and initiates the
other areas of the organization.
• Digital marketing should be given relevant importance if the bank wants
to evolve itself as the leading commercial bank.
