Strategies to Track your mortgage ads

I was attending the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association Meeting (NRMLA) in San Francisco and sat in on a session on marketing of reverse mortgage loans. The presenters addressed some good topics like marketing strategies, having a call to action in your advertisement, and tracking of your advertisements.

This topic of tracking your advertisements got me thinking not just about conversion and spending dollars on the right type of marketing each month but also on other important issues related to managing all of your mortgage advertising.

Tracking – one presenter talked about how his company asks the consumer about how he or she learned about their company. In fact – this particular presenter mentioned that they train their staff to ask the tracking question in three different ways on each call:Tracking ads cycle

 

  • How did you hear about us?
  • What advertisement did you see?
  • What number did you call?

Beware of UDAP and UDAAP in Your Mortgage Ads

There’s been a lot of enforcement on UDAAP lately in mortgage ads so what do we need to watch out for?

Some tips to be aware of:

  • When reviewing your ads, make sure the that the advertisement materials are accurate and easy to read.
  • Don’t use terms like “pre-approved” or “guaranteed” if in fact the recipient has not been preapproved or is not guaranteed to receive a loan from you.
  • Make sure your train your employees about UDAAP avoidance
  • Use scripts or call guides in your sales process to protect against UDAAP processes
  • Be careful about using small print or footnote disclosures to clarify what you mean in your advertised offer.
  • Avoid anything confusing or unclear in your headlines and your marketing message in your advertisements
