How B2B PR can help your fintech business connect with a UK audience

The fintech industry is renowned for its innovation. In a highly competitive and fiercely contested landscape, connecting with your target audience is crucial, especially when aiming to penetrate a market as dynamic as the UK’s. Therefore, leveraging the power of PR can be a game-changer for your fintech business. Here, we detail how B2B PR can help your fintech brand resonate with a UK audience and drive your business forward.

Understanding the UK fintech market

    Before we delve into the B2B PR tactics to help your fintech brand excel, it’s crucial to understand the characteristics of the UK fintech market. The UK stands as a global fintech hub, with London serving as a pivotal location driving innovation. This market is shaped by a tech-savvy audience, stringent regulations, and intense competition. Succeeding in this environment demands a deep understanding of regulations, market trends, and consumer behaviour.

    At Skout, we specialise in aligning your marketing and PR strategy with updates from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the latest fintech advancements from East London Tech City (also known as Tech City and Silicon Roundabout). This approach ensures your brand’s messaging remains timely and relevant.

    B2B PR can build credibility and trust

    In the fintech space, credibility is crucial. Businesses and consumers alike need to trust your brand before they engage with any services or products you offer. B2B PR plays a vital role in building trust and establishing credibility through strategic media placements, thought leadership content, and insightful commentary.

    By positioning your executives as industry leaders and securing a steady drumbeat of coverage through PR, your brand can establish itself as a trusted authority in the fintech space.

    Targeted and tailored media relations

    Connecting with the right media outlets and their readership is crucial for a fintech business to reach its target audience. At Skout, we have established relationships with key journalists and publications within the UK fintech space. We can build a bespoke programme to secure coverage in top-tier publications that your target audience reads, ensuring your business gains visibility and credibility among decision-makers.

    For example, we built a tailored PR campaign for a US-based fintech business to launch them to a UK audience and achieved 39 pieces of coverage throughout 2022, with close to 100,000 views. This helped to enhance its brand awareness and cement its position as an innovative player in the industry.

    Leveraging digital PR and SEO

    In modern times, digital-first strategies are essential, and PR goes beyond traditional media. We integrate digital PR strategies to bolster your business’s online presence. Your fintech business’s website is often the first touchpoint for potential new customers. By creating high-quality content for your website, you can resonate with your audience and drive traffic organically to your site.

    We can create new SEO-optimised content for your website that is naturally relevant, contextual, and authoritative, exactly what search engines look for. This approach gives your website the best chance of success.

    Effective B2B PR is not just about getting your name out there, it’s about engaging with your audience through valuable and insightful content. Whether you’re targeting CIOs or a specific sub-sector of the fintech market, only material that is interesting and relevant will resonate with them.

    At Skout, our storytelling skills lie in our drive and ambition to think differently. Our content marketing services cover a comprehensive range of tactics that are tailored to your specific business objectives. From E-books and bespoke research campaigns, to compelling customer case studies and visually striking infographics, we can help you differentiate your fintech business from your competitors.
