Letter From The Editor – July/August 2017August 30, 2017 | By: Sean Murray
Happy end-of-summer. It’s been a remarkable year so far.
In this issue, we talked to small business owners about what works and what doesn’t. Several of them advocated for more personal attention and to shift away from old fashioned marketing tactics like cold calling. If you’re a salesperson, you’ll want to read what your clients told us.
On the bank side, the companies disrupting banking are… other banks, ones that have embraced digital technology and partnerships with online lenders. They’re tech companies with bank charters, or at least that’s how they appear. And it’s working for them quite well. To become a better bank, these banks are taking an entirely different approach than their predecessors.
We’ve got a lot more of course and I want to thank everyone that has supported deBanked all these years, whether as a paying advertiser or as a regular reader. One of the most rewarding things for myself personally has been to see copies of this magazine appear in the lobbies of funding companies all over the country as reading material for visitors. That has given us incredible reach, but I think we can reach even farther. Stay tuned for plans we have in 2018. As the industry turns a page, I hope that you’ll continue turning ours.
