Whether it’s the starting point of a strategized onboarding campaign, or a solo communication, reconnecting with new customers early on can influence the entirety of their relationship with your institution.In this post, I wanted to address the importance of this initial communication, and the value a Welcome Letter creates for FIs and their customer relationships.1. INFORMA well written Welcome Letter is more than just an acknowledgement of a new member’s existence. It’s also a chance to provide them with valuable information about your institution. Who you are, what values your company holds, even what opportunities lay ahead for customers; these are all examples of what could be included in a Welcome Letter to help educate your new customer/member.2. SHOW YOU CAREA well written Welcome Letter shows your new customer/member that you value their business. It’s an effective means of strengthening the line of communication early on in the relationship. After all, who doesn’t like feeling welcome? Also, by personalizing the message to the customer’s account, you can demonstrate your FIs dedication to their customers/members as individuals – not just as a means for profit. continue reading »
The third matchweek of the Ghana Premier League season had its share of excitement on and off the pitch.As always, there are lots of numbers to pore over and lots of stats to unearthAway day bluesAll 18 teams were in action again this weekend, in nine matches across the country. It wasn’t the best of weekends for the away sides as only one managed to pick up three points. Berekum Chelsea’s 1-0 win at the Baba Yara Stadium against Asante Kotoko was the only away win of the weekend.Three matches ended in draws with five home sides – Hearts of Oak, Aduana, Bechem United, Ashgold and Karela – picking up three points from their respective matches. This is the lowest winning tally for away sides this season as three sides won away from home in the opening week, with four earning three points a week later.Where are the goals?17 goals were scored across all the nine match centres in the country. This total is the lowest so far this season as 25 goals were bagged in the first week and 19 in the second. 10 goals were scored home sides this weekend (one more than the previous weekend) with five scored by away sides (three fewer than Matchweek 2).Seven of the 18 teams in the Premier League failed to score a goal this weekend, with two matches – Dreams FC vs Legon Cities and Elmina Sharks and WAFA – ending goalless. Only four sides – Hearts, Aduana, Karela and Ashgold- scored more than one goal this weekend.Card happy23 yellow cards were flashed in Matchweek Three. Kotoko’s game with Berekum Chelsea saw the most with six yellow cards shown, along with a red card for defender Ampem Dacosta. Only one other red card was shown this weekend, with Kwodwo Addae sent-off for Karela against Inter Allies. Aduana and King Faisal were however on their best behaviour this weekend as theirs was the only game without a single card being shown.From 12 yardsThree penalties were awarded this weekend, with two of them finding the back of the net. Victorien Adebayor scored from the spot for Inter Allies against Karela while Elvis Kyei Baffour also netted his penalty for Liberty in their 1-1 draw with Medeama. Only Eleven Wonders’ Kwadwo Seth Osei missed from the spot this weekend in their loss to Ashgold.At both endsMedeama and Aduana have the league’s most potent frontlines with seven goals from the three games so far. Eleven Wonders and Accra Great Olympics however, are yet to find the back of the net this season. King Faisal, Ebusua Dwarfs and Inter Allies have the league’s most porous defences, conceding seven goals in the three league games. Ashgold, WAFA and Berekum Chelsea are yet to concede a goal this season.Golden Boy returnsYahaya Mohammed’s one-game goal drought came to an unsurprising end this weekend as he bagged two goals for Aduana. He leads the goalscorers chart with five goals. Medeama’s Prince Opoku Agyemang is next on the list with three goals.
