Merriam Webster defines social media (yes, there really is a definition) as, “forms of electronic communication (as Web sites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content.” There is one word in that description that sticks out to us, and if you’ve read any of our previous blogs, you probably know what it is: COMMUNITY. NVE is a Mutual Bank, and as such, our focus remains on the communities and people we serve throughout northern New Jersey. The platforms we utilize—Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn—enable us to extend our reach ever further.
Social media plays a role in almost everything these days, as it has become one of the many tools we use to stay connected. With the evolution of social media networks, we have been able to create additional resources for, and open new lines of communication with our customers.
We realize that not everyone is a proponent of this form of digital communication, and that even those who are may not be interested in, or active on every platform. That’s why NVE Bank has branched out and developed a presence on several of the most popular networks.
On NVE’s Facebook page, you’ll find a wide array of informative, useful, and applicable posts and news items. Our “fans” are privy to everything from tips on saving and investing, to local freebies, community events, concert sweepstakes, and much more.
For fans of “short and sweet,” NVE’s Twitter Page may be worth a look. With all tweets limited to 140 characters or less, the content you’ll find on our page is comprised of snippets of news and links to articles we think may be of interest. One of the great features Twitter offers is “Tweet Chats,” which are open conversations, often hosted by an expert on a chosen topic. When we see a topic we think our followers might like to learn more about—like “How to Save $100 Per Month”—we tweet about it and explain how to get involved.
Small businesses often play a big role in their neighborhoods and surrounding communities, and NVE Bank is proud to be the banking choice of many small businesses in northern New Jersey. Because of this, NVE’s LinkedIn page has been designed as a resource where current and potential customers can find materials to support the optimization and growth of their small businesses.
Since 1887, NVE has grown as a leading Mutual Bank in New Jersey by always putting our customers first. That’s not just a slogan—it’s the way we’ve done business for over a century. If you are on any of the social networks we mentioned, please consider connecting with us so we can continue providing ways to enhance your banking experience.
