Is your fintech blog boring and not engaging your readers? If your blog posts look a lot like these: “Great news! [Company name] closes Series B funding” “[Company name ] featured on [publication name]” “[New product feature] is here!” It may be time to shake things up. Fintechs, like many tech companies, use blogs as a PR channel, publishing content focused on them and their products without speaking to topics that potential customers are looking for.

When asked to recall your favorite online content, you probably don’t think about stuff made by banks. Unless, of course, your job is to make content for a bank.

It’s just that flashier B2C brands often muscle their way center stage, showing off the products and services that people genuinely love shopping for: sneakers, beauty products, vacation packages. When most of us sit down to research where to bank, we’re not really jumping for joy. Believe it or not, the caution with which consumers approach money actually makes finance content ..read more

The small talk, while pleasant, wasn’t bringing me any closer to that credit card. I wondered if there was an app I could have used instead. Turns out, I’m far from the only young consumer looking to escape the in-person process for the ease of mobile banking. According to a January 2017 Salesforce study, 31 percent of millennials use mobile as their primary banking option, nearly double any other channel. Millennials ..read more

A new infographic from Facebook IQ reveals that 44 percent of millennials feel like their banks don’t understand them, and 36 percent go so far as to “describe their current bank in unflattering terms.” (Cue the frowning emojis.)

What can savvy banks do to reach younger consumers? For starters, keep i ..read more
