Challenges of Marketing a FinTech Business Online
Although “Fintech” is regarded as a single sector, there is a huge variety of businesses and technologies operating within it. From SAAS Accounting software packages for small businesses (e.g. Sage, Xero) up to enterprise-level solutions for managing working capital. Demand for FinTech products also varies wildly depending on the type of customer being targeted. Again, accounting software has a high search volume and high competition on Google AdWords which reflects the size and demand of the small business market. At the Enterprise end of the Financial Technology SASS market, the number of potential customers can be very small. Therefore reaching this limited number of decision-makers requires a varied strategy beyond standard Content Production, Outreach, SEO and AdWords.
As with advertising any product or service online, knowing who your decision makers are and how to reach them is key. Knowledge of the different stages of the marketing funnel and what messages to put in front of potential customers at the right time will improve sales performance.
Equally, the affordability of acquiring leads for FinTech products can be quite high. This could be advertising costs (e.g. high AdWords CPC) plus working to a long sales cycle (e.g. onboarding a multinational enterprise). Therefore having a sense of Customer Lifetime Value once a customer is acquired is very important to make sure that business profitability is maintained.
