Intent Signals (Triggers) for Fintech

For a fintech app, recalculating lead scores involves identifying triggers that reflect user engagement, trust in the platform, financial activity, and potential for long-term usage or upsell opportunities. In the fintech sector, these triggers often relate to financial behaviors, security interactions, and user engagement with various financial services offered by the app. Here's a list of potential triggers for recalculating lead scores in a fintech context:

User Engagement Triggers

App Login and Usage Patterns
  • Frequency and regularity of app logins.
  • Duration and depth of engagement during each session.
Account Management Activities
  • Updating personal and financial information.
  • Active management of account settings and preferences.
Financial Transaction Activities
  • Frequency and volume of transactions (transfers, payments, investments).
  • Diversification of transaction types (e.g., using multiple financial services).
Engagement with Financial Tools
  • Regular use of budgeting tools, financial calculators, or investment simulators.
  • Setting and tracking financial goals.

Financial Behavior Triggers

Deposit and Savings Patterns
  • Consistency and frequency of deposits into savings or investment accounts.
  • Growth in savings or investment balances over time.
Credit and Loan Activities
  • Applying for and using credit products (like credit cards, personal loans).
  • Consistency and timeliness in loan repayments.
Investment Activities
  • Engagement in investment platforms (stocks, bonds, mutual funds).
  • Adjustments to investment portfolios or strategies.

Security and Compliance Triggers

Security Interactions
  • Setting up or updating security features (two-factor authentication, biometric logins).
  • Responsiveness to security alerts or notifications.
Compliance and Verification Actions
  • Completeness and timeliness in fulfilling KYC (Know Your Customer) requirements.
  • Responsiveness to compliance-related queries.

Subscription and Upsell Opportunities

Premium Feature Usage
  • Subscription to premium services or features.
  • Usage intensity of premium offerings.

External Engagement

Referral Activity

In a fintech environment, recalculating lead scores based on these triggers can help in identifying users who are actively engaged with the financial platform, are potential candidates for upselling or cross-selling financial products, and demonstrate trust and reliability as clients. This approach enables fintech companies to tailor their services, optimize their marketing strategies, and enhance user satisfaction by focusing on their most promising users and meeting their specific financial needs and behaviors.
