As the fintech industry continues to grow and compete for venture capital and customers, working with a strong fintech marketing agency isn’t just good business. It’s a matter of survival.

In 2022, the vast majority (79%) of Americans preferred banking online, and that number is only increasing. Experts predict the fintech industry will increase to over $37 billion by 2026. Entrepreneurs launched more than 100,000 fintech businesses in 2021 alone.

With that much growth, you need to find a way to stand out, and partnering with a fintech marketing agency is a great strategy. A fintech marketing agency has the specialized knowledge and experience to target financial customers, which means they’ll produce the content marketing ROI you need to scale your business.

But how do you know which fintech marketing agency to pick? While we hope our content marketing services will help your brand stand out, we recognize we aren’t one-size-fits-all. We’ve pulled together some of the best fintech marketing agencies so you can make the right choice for your brand.

They recognize that fintech can be complicated and confusing for your audience. Still, the messages delivered do more than explain your product — they help single parents save for a home, recent college grads pay off student loans, and the underbanked participate in a global economy.

Their bread and butter are SEO and PPC services. They build their strategy based on the story your traffic, sales, and conversion data tell them, so your strategy is unique to you while adhering to best practices.

Strengths: Extensive client base and experience drives strategy

Pricing: Custom pricing

Recognizable clients: Bread, Pay Anywhere, National Bitcoin ATM

You’d think an agency with more than 250 clients would be too big to work with fintech startups, but you’d be wrong. KlientBoost is the largest agency on our list. They’re nimble enough to work with the biggest players like Nextdoor, Airbnb, and NPR while helping startups get acquired or gain funding.

KlientBoost pairs PPC with SEO optimization to deliver quick wins initially, followed by steady gains. They also work to identify inefficient marketing spend. As a result, they deliver month-over-month growth that often exceeds expectations.

Client reviews consistently call out Ninja Promo’s depth of industry knowledge, which explains their success, especially their ability to break down complex industry topics into engaging content.

Pick the Best Fintech Marketing Agency

Choosing a fintech marketing agency isn’t a matter of doing a quick Google search and going with the first result. It takes time and some due diligence to find the right fit. This goes both ways — a decent marketing agency will take on any brand, but a great one will recognize when its services don’t match your goals.

Chart highlighting what to look for in a fintech marketing agency

While researching the best fintech marketing agencies and other options, make sure the agency has:

  • Fintech expertise. True, a good marketing team will learn your industry, but fintech marketing strategy and B2B content strategy are too nuanced to learn overnight. You don’t have time for them to learn the ropes of the industry and your brand.
  • Pricing that fits your budget but isn’t too good to be true. If they promise you all the bells and whistles for a suspiciously low price, alarm bells should start ringing. You’re likely to be disappointed down the road when they can’t follow through.
  • Clear social proof. Don’t take their word that they’re good at what they do — check out their socials to see their work. Read their reviews on independent websites. Speak with former and current clients.
  • Unique, nuanced pitch. If a one-size-fits-all approach worked, you could implement it yourself and save the cost of hiring an agency. Opt for an agency whose pitch shows they invested time in getting to know your brand.
  • Industry leadership. Many agencies can create content, but you want an agency that breaks new ground. Look for an agency that’s challenging the status quo and sharing their knowledge with blogs, podcasts, and other thought leadership.
