Your digital summer

Jetting off on an airplane to somewhere tropical this summer? Or, perhaps, you’re heading somewhere closer to home here in sunny England. Whatever your plans, many of you will want to make sure you’re still there for your customers, if they need you – even if that’s from a beach or whilst sunning yourself by a swimming pool!

Luckily, we’ve got you covered – not only with our products, but with some top digital tips, too.

Make sure your business is listed on UKMortgages

Summer is a popular time to move house so plenty of people will be in need of your professional help. If you are a Mortgage Brain sourcing user, you can list your business on UKMortgages, our free lead generation suite for brokers, and help local customers to find your firm’s details and get in touch.

All you need to do is to provide your details on our website and you’ll be good to go.

Source any time, any place…

MortgageBrain Anywhere is our online, whole of market sourcing system. It provides total flexibility, allowing you to source mortgages for your clients anytime, anywhere from any PC, tablet or laptop, you just need an internet connection. Products are updated automatically and there is no need to download anything.

You don’t even need to be on the same device each time you log in, either. MortgageBrain Anywhere is exactly that: anywhere! You can start a case on your computer at work, and continue it later on your iPad or tablet, which is helpful when you’re going away on holiday and don’t have access to your laptop or PC.

If you’re not yet a MortgageBrain Anywhere customer, you can get your hands on a 30-day free trial and see what you think.

Keep in step with your clients whilst away

It’s not just you who will be thinking about how you can tie up all the loose ends before going away. We can also help your clients get things in order so that they can enjoy more of their summer.

The Key Client Portal is part of our digital customer journey offering and was designed with a better customer experience in mind, to ensure efficient communication and information exchange between you and your client.

The main benefit of your clients using the Client Portal is its time-saving ability. The Portal’s Fact Find functionality enables your clients to input their own data – with 24-hour access so they can do it at a time most convenient to them. This means you can collect data on your clients without having to organise a meeting to gather this information – handy if either of you have a holiday booked during this time!

You can try the Key free for 30 days here if you don’t use it already, and we have plenty more benefits outlined for both you and your clients with regards to the Client Portal on our dedicated page.

Social media savvy?

You may be going on holiday, but your business doesn’t need to take a break! Social media is a fantastic – plus simple – way to generate potential leads and raise brand awareness even when you’re not in the office.

If you have a Facebook page, spend some time before you go away scheduling in posts. For those of you who use Twitter or LinkedIn, there are plenty of scheduling platforms around that you can use – take a look at Buffer, Hootsuite and Hubspot, amongst others.

During the summer months, it’s also preferable to share even more value-adding content such as light-hearted articles or tips that people will find interesting – anything that adds value to your followers. This is likely to gain you an engaged audience, which, if they’re in your target audience, means they may be more likely to consider your services because they have a great impression of you from social media.

In summary – enjoy your summer

So, that’s your digital summer in a nutshell! If you have any other tips about how you manage your business whilst you are away, or any other features of our systems that are helpful during the holiday season, make sure you share them by tweeting us!

Instant success for Mortgage Brain’s Mobile App – UKmortgages

Mortgage Brain’s mobile application solution to promote brokers and mortgages products to UK consumers has taken the market by storm and become an immediate success during the first few weeks since its launch.

Thousands of consumer downloads have taken place since the app was launched mid April, with many of them being put in touch with brokers via the app’s ‘Find A Broker’ capability. The app, UKmortgages, was launched initially on the iPhone on the 16th April, and will soon be made available on the iPad and Android devices.

A first of its kind in the UK mortgage industry, UKmortgages, has been designed to support brokers’ sales channels by promoting them to consumers via next generation mobile devices and delivering free leads. In its first few weeks of availability, the app, which is available in the Apple Store, has been accessed and used over 10,000 times.

Mark Lofthouse, CEO of Mortgage Brain, comments, “The initial consumer downloads and adoption of our app, along with broker participation within our ‘Find a Broker’ function, is absolutely fantastic. “The app, being the UK’s most comprehensive mortgage search, compare and review mobile application available, is having a major impact amongst consumers.”

“The most important aspect of the app, however, is the fact that real leads are being put through to brokers at no cost to the broker. This is fantastic news for the mortgage intermediary market and reinforces the time and investment spent in developing the app, which has a primary function of supporting brokers and their new and on-going sales opportunities.”

The app, which is free of charge to consumers,  includes a high level consumer facing mortgage search and selection capability -featuring broker only products -, a range of mortgage calculators, and a unique ‘Find a Broker’ facility.

All mortgage brokers who use Mortgage Brain’s mortgage sourcing systems are entitled to be promoted within the Find a Broker section, together with contact details, at no charge and all leads and enquiries will be passed on, again at no charge.

Powered by the same technology as Mortgage Brain’s award winning sourcing system – ALL NEW MortgageBrain – the new app offers intermediaries the opportunity, at no extra cost, to generate increased business levels by marketing themselves directly with financially informed, potential homebuyers, throughout the UK.
