New Innovations Upgrade Program Options
Among the vast array of programs that have cropped up over the past decade, few – if any – can claim to draw upon solid empirical evidence of best practices for financial education. This failure can be attributed to a lack of experience, personnel, capital, and executable processes.
The current reality is that most financial education programs are a random mixture of resources that lack overall campaign design. Few organizations have adequate measurement systems in place, and even fewer know how to use the data. This shortcoming results in financial education programs that are short-lived, suffer from poor participation rates, and offer limited brand benefits.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Recent research, process, and technology breakthroughs allow individuals and organizations of all sizes to contribute in a meaningful way to promote the financial literacy movement. Even if you are just starting out, you can lay a foundation for your initiative based on available best practice data.
