Crowd Valley (a Grow VC Group company) has supported over 100 clients in the market with their fintech applications, and we see many good ideas for different verticals and digital finance products. Given the growth in the industry over the past two years, it’s becoming clear to everyone that the potential is huge, however it’s important to realize that “build it and they will come” simply doesn’t apply here.

You can build an amazing digital investing platform with our API, but if you are not going to promote it in the right way, it will not get any attention.

I recently had a conversation with Sebastian Fung, the VP Marketing at, a crowdlending platform that matches borrowers and lenders at interest rates that benefit both parties. Their focus is helping people lend based on personal relationships and social validation, rather than credit scores (eg. Kickstarter for loans).

Here the 3 ideas he shared with us:

1) Tell stories about your users.

2) Have conversations.

3) Bake in social.

These are three very important points and we will return on this in future blog posts since there are different areas to cover and to consider when you are planning how to market your online investing or lending application. Each of them has specific considerations and aspects, that may make them more relevant in specific niches or market verticals and any strategy needs to be considered in full thoroughly.

I’d love to learn what you currently do to promote your product and what are the best marketing tactics (eg. proven strategies) you can give to someone starting a new platform or launching a new fintech product. Happy to connect by email (alessandro[at] or on Twitter.
