OUR BIG BET
Embedded finance is on the same trajectory that made “digital marketing” just “marketing” and “mobile phones” just “phones.” The industry is evolving, and is expected to reach $212 billion by 2029 at a CAGR of 23.5% between 2022-2029. Expected trends in 2023 include payment experiences that streamline and protect purchases, rather than only providing credit cards or insurance policies, and companies that capitalize on or facilitate these experiences will win.
- Learn more about embedded finance, how brands will define their roles in the embedded finance value chain, and why 2023 is the year of embedded finance.
At FSM, we often talk about the idea of “crawl-walk-run.” When you’re making big changes and trying to accomplish big goals, sometimes you have to take smaller steps (crawl/walk) before you can take the leap to larger ones (run). If you have a prospect that’s afraid of a big change, here’s a great article to share with them that breaks down a couple of strategies for how to tackle it, including the “foot in the door” strategy that sounds a lot like “crawl-walk-run.”
INTRODUCING FSM REWARDS
FSM Rewards is a new program from Fast Slow Motion created to help Salesforce Account Executives close more deals, and close them faster.
Every time we win a deal together, FSM will award you discount credits in the amount of 5% of our implementation SOW. Credits are available immediately, and are valid for 365 days after our scope is signed.
Use your discount credits to effectively lower implementation costs for your key targets and deals, bank your credits and deploy them strategically to meet your goals, and re-engage past prospects in your patch!
At FSM, we want to do what it takes to help you win. For those who we’ve already won deals with us this year, you’ve got discount credits in the bank! To check your FSM Rewards credits balance, check in with your FSM Partner Relationship Manager.
