December 2023 Fintech Marketing Roundup | Around the Web

Without further ado, enjoy these December 2023 Fintech Marketing Roundup posts from around the web:

United We Thrive: The Untapped Power of Bank-Fintech Partnerships This Bain & Company article discusses the increasing importance of partnerships between banks and fintech to enhance digital product design, market speed, and security. While bank-fintech partnerships have been a topic of discussion for a while, many still fail to realize the full value of true partnerships. Strategic partnerships should transcend a simple aim to provide solutions to technological issues. To do this, the business needs and performance metrics should be clearly defined — and decision-making processes should be transparent. People and processes should come first and technology second. Banks that want to stay on the bleeding edge of innovation — and fintechs that rely on revenue and investments to grow and access new markets — need to come together to form collaborative, trusting relationships rather than transactional ones. 

APIs: The silent fintech security concernThis article summarizes some of the findings of a quarterly report published by security platform Wallarm, highlighting a critical concern for fintechs: APIs. Injections — where someone sends dangerous API commands through a user input field — are the top issue, followed by authentication flaws and cross-site issues. API leaks — a recently discovered issue — make up more than 1 in 10 incidents, hitting the likes of Netflix, enterprise software firms, and open-source software providers. Worse yet, aging infrastructure aggravates the problem. Older bank APIs make it more difficult to find who defined a key. 

Issuers and Merchants Collaborate to Thwart Fraudsters and Accept ‘Good’ Transactions – The intensity of fraud attacks on every part of the payments ecosystem is ramping up, according to Jeff Gipson, Director of Payment Product Management at Discover Global Network. Social engineering fraud is especially dangerous as fraudsters become more sophisticated and leverage AI to perpetrate attacks at scale. As a result, banks and enterprises must also find ways to use AI to thwart bad actors. Collaboration between merchants and issuers and the exchange of information can help build a more robust defense system. 

Are We Approaching a World Without Cards? – Francesco Simoneschi discusses the drawbacks of cards — the cost, the clunkiness, the outdated experience — and waxes poetic about the possibility that account-to-account (A2A) payments powered by open banking rails may gain enough traction to overtake the incumbent digital payment method of choice. A2A offers a native mobile experience where payments are made directly from the bank to the merchant and vice versa. A great CX for the user will be necessary to facilitate more momentum behind A2A. While a world without cards may not be…in the cards, a world with more choice should be.

December 2023 Fintech Marketing Roundup | Content Rewired Posts

Check out the December 2023 Fintech Marketing Roundup from Content Rewired’s blog:

How to Use Content Marketing for Fintech Revenue RetentionContent is an important piece in the customer journey, particularly for retaining fintech customers. Leveraging diverse content like webinars, newsletters, and infographics is a great (cost-effective) way to support revenue retention. It offers a flexible way to cater to different customer preferences and stages in the customer journey, enhancing personalization and engagement. Using content strategically to nurture customer relationships and sustain fintech growth can also build trust and loyalty. 

5 Ways to Leverage AI for Fintech Marketing CommunicationsThis article explores how AI can revolutionize fintech marketing. It covers five key methods: 1) Laser-Focused Content Curation using AI for precise topic identification and engagement, 2) AI Video Production for streamlined visual storytelling, 3) Enhanced Email Campaigns through AI-driven content and timing optimization, 4) AI-driven Chatbots for personalized customer interactions, and 5) AI-aided Content Creation for generating articles and social media posts. Yes, AI can make marketing better. No, we are not at a point where great marketing can exist without the essential human touch. 

2024 Fintech Content Marketing PredictionsThis article highlights our big six predictions for fintech content marketing in 2024, including AI’s impact on scaling content, conducting deep dive data analysis, dynamic marketing campaigns, creating fresh experiences, fostering interaction and engagement, and nurturing trust. In many ways, 2024 is not terribly different from 2023 (yet): The key to success has always been to embrace the changes, harness new tools, and trust the process. Content marketing takes time, and some results come faster than others. Where 2024 *will* be different is the rate at which the change accelerates and fintech marketers must adapt. Those that stay on the path and remain at the forefront of innovation will be best positioned to deliver the experiences and insights that audiences want and build trust. The future beckons with promise, and for fintech, the pen (or perhaps the keyboard) is mightier than ever.
