Heard of the One-Inch Punch?

Choosing Blue Train Marketing means no outdated agency tactics that are designed to impress new clients.

There’ll be no big room of marketing gurus who know little about your business. No chins will be stroked pensively at your expense and no time will be wasted. We are totally dedicated to supporting fintech and payment companies with marketing that is both relevant and high-quality. No need to explain Open Banking, digital transformation or what biometric authentication are all about.

We may already know your competitors which means we’re better qualified to help position your business distinctively and win in the market. We have our core skill in-house and don’t farm out projects to third-parties who don’t understand your business. We’ll bring a small number of our lead team into direct and frequent contact with your business. The language of your business will be learned. The movements of your target market and the nuances of their behaviour will be studied.

We believe real impact is best achieved by being lean, focused and unleashed from close quarters – just like Bruce Lee’s famous One-Inch Punch.
