Top Mortgage Marketing Articles

If you’re a loan officer or a mortgage lender and you are struggling with digital marketing you are not alone. Most everyone that we talk to in the business is having a hard time with this at one level or another. Of course there are a small group of people who excel at mortgage marketing, but it’s a very small percentage.

Loan originators and loan officers tend to be natural salespeople. They’re people oriented, problem solvers and networking comes naturally. They like working with people, so for them, sitting behind a desk and working on their website or just social profiles or trying to connect with real estate agents on Facebook and LinkedIn is a big priority.

To help you improve your online mortgage marketing, we’ve grabbed what we think are some of the top mortgage marketing articles on the web. Enjoy!

The Evolving Role of the MLS in Mortgage Lead Generation

Excellent article from RatePlug – the leading mortgage marketing platform. Through innovative technology that makes the process of buying and selling a home much more efficient and effective, the MLS now has the potential to address multiple needs for buyers, especially in regards to special financing and affordability. And the lender is a major player and the missing piece to the puzzle. In fact, this creates a huge mortgage marketing opportunity for lenders. While the MLS is a solid collaboration and research tool for agents, mortgage lenders seldom understand the power the MLS can provide to their business, and thus are missing out on new home finance opportunities.
