This Week’s Online Publication Review: Financial Services


The finance industry is constantly in flux, which means Digital Diary must stay up to date with the latest trends that are affecting the business professionals in the field.

We have seen major digital transformation trends emerge in the financial services industry, and we frequently report on these trends because of how they affect big players in this industry.

With our FSI Transformation Assembly rapidly approaching, we thought it would be appropriate to review a publication that provides us with all the up to date news that affects the financial industry so frequently.

We shape our posts based on the information provided in these established publications which also allows us to gain important knowledge along the way.

Let’s take a look.

Business Insider provides the latest news from the finance sector, with informative titles guiding readers to decide which story is relevant to their specific interests.

The actual content found in the article is concise and to the point, focusing on the main points that would be useful for business professionals or just interested readers.

Sometimes, photos are provided in the content of the article.This makes the article even more informative because it gives readers a visual aid to understand the content of the article.

Along with the content aspect of the article, it also provides a number of how many people shared the piece. These numbers can range from 2,000 shares to 90,000 shares, depending on the depth of the article and the topic itself.

On the right-hand side of the website, Business Insider provides “Market Insider” which displays, “Real-time market data. Get the latest on stocks, commodities, currencies, funds, rates, ETFs, and more from almost 100 global exchanges.” 

Underneath this feature, is sponsored financial content that includes articles from a variety of different publications.


Digital Diary Review: 10/10

Business Insider provides social media platforms on its website, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Facebook.

This publication also gives readers access to an app that can be downloaded off of the Apple Store or Google Play, which provides a mobile component to the articles.

Under the “contact” tab on the website, Business Insider urges readers to contact employees of the publication, providing a large list of professionals’ email addresses including the CEO, and professionals separated by the industry they work in.

There is also an anonymous box that customers can write tips in.

Business Insider is very open to its readers and encourages feedback and help in order to make the publication as best as it can be.

This, among many reasons, is why we trust this publication to provide us with the top stories in the financial industry.
