The Nigeria Fintech Marketing Outlook, co-authored by industry specialists Charles Anijekwu and Jeremiah Ajayi, provides Nigerian fintechs with data-based strategies to achieve vital business goals: customer acquisition, retention, and sustainable long-term growth.

The report discusses the key discoveries obtained from extensive research that serve as a guide for success in the hyper-competitive Nigerian fintech market.

Strategic Marketing Budget Optimization for Maximum Impact

The report equally calls attention to the growing acceptance of generative AI among fintech marketers in Nigeria.

While companies are focused on exploring new ways of engaging customers, 29% of the fintechs that were surveyed have already discovered the benefits of generative AI in content creation.

With this technology, fintechs can create high-quality personalized content at scale, which enhances the intimacy between them and their target audience.
