What Good Mortgage Lead Software Can Do For You

By: James Hasson

Sometimes we try to procrastinate or completely ignore those aspects of conducting business which perplex or overwhelm us. It follows that the business which learns to conquer these challenging areas stays miles ahead of competition.

And so it is with mortgage lead management. Though this activity can be time-consuming, and requires you to be highly systematic and organized in your approach (which most of us are not), it can give you rich rewards in the form of increased conversion rates, better response time, and higher client satisfaction.

So how can you reap the benefits of lead management without getting intimidated by the volume of work? In order to remain competitive, you need to focus on time management too; the best way to handle these issues is to procure good mortgage lead software.

Good lead generation software lets the bulk of the mundane work be automated so that you can focus on the 'real' marketing process. In the absence of a good lead management system, genuine leads are apt to get lost in the clutter that arises from obtaining leads in a haphazard manner. Typically, the lead generation management system is a web-based system for managing and distributing leads.

Mundane processes that can be automated via lead generation software include matching and sending leads, lead refunds and adding money to buyer accounts. It is possible to upload thousands of leads in a given file - the system usually handles all lead matching and distribution. You can also export leads that do not match your lead buyers so you can sell them through another channel.

If you purchase leads from an outside source, you can upload them with this facility and have the system sort them and send them out to the brokers. Brokers can receive their leads within a very short time after you have uploaded your lead file. Some software even lets you market your web site and gather your own leads with the included online application, and the leads thus generated can be processed immediately.

Good mortgage lead software should also consist of a reporting module to track your lead sources, brokers, profits, and lead returns. Reporting is a very important feature if your company is dealing with hundreds of leads per week (or even per day). Reports such as lead returns by broker or lead returns by lead source can bring any problems to your attention.

A good lead management system should offer security for your company as well the prospective clients by providing access only to qualified employees. This is of special significance to prospects who part with valuable information in their dealing with the you.

If selected carefully and used effectively, good mortgage lead software can help your business survive and thrive in an increasingly competitive market.
