Where:

Irvine, CA 92614

 

When:

 

Thursday, March 5th

7:30am - 5:00pm

 

Why:

 

Independent mortgage professionals are primarily entrepreneurs who are often responsible for multiple aspects of operating their businesses in addition to originating loans and supporting their customers. Marketing often takes a backseat to more time sensitive customer needs, loan related tasks and compliance or guideline-related issues. At the same time, marketing and branding efforts have the most potential to impact both short and long-term business goals, no matter the size of the operation. From cleaning up a personal and professional presence on social media and online to implementing easy touchpoints to better connect with an audience, AIME Activate will empower independent mortgage professionals to sharpen their consumer-facing brand and increase referral retention rates. Both new and seasoned mortgage brokers will be able to integrate these new skills into their day-to-day relationship building and ultimately help them better market themselves as mortgage experts in their own communities.
