Which stats are the most important to track? Our roundtable this week focuses in on just one stat….and an article that says it’s the most powerful statistic of all for your pocketbook.
On the Freshbooks FinTech segment we talk about the recent issues at Digit. The popular savings app recently went from the fantastic price of “free” to $2.99 per month. There was huge fallout on the internet….over $2.99 per month. Is this an overreaction? What happens when apps pivot? We ask three industry insiders for their point of view, and boy do they bring it. Shane Steele from Chime, Mike Lentz from TipYourself, and Brad Lawler from the Draft app give us their perspective.
