Top 25 Small Business Banks and Credit Unions on Twitter

Small Business Banks

 

Does your business account with your bank or credit union have an active Twitter feed?small business banks

Would you find it extremely helpful if your bank engaged with you on Twitter and answered questions and/or issues you have regarding your account?

Do you think regular updates of events, special deals, new bank products, tools, and other helpful information would be of value to your business?

Well the good news is many financial institutions are jumping on the micro-blogging platform known as Twitter but the bad news is very few are taking advantage of providing true business value to its followers.  

Now I know value can mean many things but in the financial industry customer service ranks at the very top of the list.

For example, Bank of America uses Twitter as a customer service tool by proactively seeking out those who may be (tweeting) about a negative experience they have had with B of A. The Twitter rep representing B of A makes contact and does what he can do to repair the situation and save the customer relationship. Now that’s what I call customer service!  

Below are my top 25 small business banks and credit unions on Twitter that provide a clear and consistent message to their followers ranging from customer service, customer interaction, important news, tips, product updates, tools, and valuable resources for business owners.
