Commercial Loan Brokerage Marketing Services
To be successful, commercial loan brokers need a consistent, professional image both in-person and throughout all of their marketing and communication efforts. Our marketing packages ensure a professional presentation by focusing on the four key principles for effective marketing.
To be successful as a loan broker, you must first earn your client’s trust. Our branding solutions make sure you present a professional, credible, and consistent identity for your company. We help you to look like an industry leader every time you interact with clients.
When prospective clients look for commercial funding today, they start online. Your website becomes their first (and sometimes their last) impression of your business. Our custom websites help you to get found online, to look great on mobile and desktop, and to convert your website visitors into solid leads.
The most effective marketing creates deep, long term relationships with prospects and clients. Our experts help loan brokerages by running full social media campaigns, SEO, blogging, and newsletters. This allows you to spend your time where it counts most – and not behind a computer!
Marketing is an essential, ongoing process. Marketing technology and opportunities changes weekly, even if you haven’t caught up yet. Our ongoing, one on one coaching helps brokers to stay on top of what matters, to develop and implement proven marketing strategies, and to use their time as effectively as possible.
Our Roots: Where We Come From
The short and sweet of it is that our founders saw a business need. They believed they were uniquely positioned to satisfy that need better than anyone else. And so Alternative Funding Partners was born.
Of course, there is more to the story. Thomas O’Rourke and Darrick Brown had worked together for many years managing different departments at Wells Fargo, one of America’s largest banks. After they left Wells Fargo – Tom to serve as CMO of a real estate lending firm, and Darrick to lead an alternative loan brokerage – they stayed in close touch.
Years later, they began to discuss what a perfect alternative funding solution would look like. Their experiences in one of America’s banking behemoths, combined with their work with smaller commercial loan brokerages, showed them that there was a huge need in the market place for a trustworthy firm that could combine capital sourcing, broker training, and marketing. They reached out to Shane Walton, owner of Green Vine Marketing, to fill in the marketing piece, and Alternative Funding Partners was launched.
