Alternative payments is one of the fastest growing segments in the FinTech sector. According to some estimates, alternative payments, including cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, will account for half of all online payments by 2017, reducing online card payments down to just over 40 percent of all Web-based payments.
For alternative payment providers, the question isn’t whether the industry will grow, but whether they will be able to capture their share of additional revenue – and increasingly, that means finding ways to market your business through Google and other search engines.
Companies that provide alternative forms of payments and cryptocurrencies have strong messaging on their side. In general, these types of payments are simpler, safer and more global than traditional payments.
However, messaging about alternative payments and alternative payment technologies is ineffective unless it reaches the right audiences. With a carefully crafted SEO strategy in your corner, you can make it easy for granular audience segments to find relevant brand messages online.
