Always a new app on the way

FinTech is rocking everything about the way people spend, save, and trade, and techies are responding. An app to maximize your interest return? Got it. Cryptocurrency? That’s covered. Instant buy buttons? Way ahead of you. There are, however, a few other things quick-thinking entrepreneurs will want to stay on top of with this article on clever new trends to watch in the new financial climate.

Turning Japanese

Not just head shrinking

Put your clients on the couch

You also want to tap into your target market’s psyche when building your PPC plan. You tantalize, they click, you profit. These savvy tricks will help your marketing team push the right buttons in your clients’ minds.
