Promoted by iConnect Financial
iConnect Financial, the new retail brokerage model launched by industry leading aggregator Connective in May this year, has just announced a new recruitment drive in response to demand from digitally savvy consumers who are connecting with the brand online in ever increasing numbers.
“Consumer response to the brand has been great,” says Leith Wickstein, head of iConnect Financial. “Our digital marketing program has gained traction more quickly than we expected, which tells us consumers shopping for home loans in the online space have a real need for professional advice they can trust” he adds. ”We’re thrilled with the number of leads the program is generating and we have just put on two more telephone staff to manage our online enquiries.”
Having only officially launched the brand in May this year, iConnect Financial has been pleasantly surprised by the enthusiastic response from online consumers. “I believe it has everything to do with the high standard of professionalism we apply to every aspect of what we do,” says Leith. “Consumers these days are very discerning. They like transparency, they like to be able to find out what they need to know about a service provider before they click that button. Our website makes it apparent that our brokers have been carefully chosen for their expertise. They can also tell at a glance the brokers get professional support from iConnect Financial and they know this will give them a better, more reliable service at the end of the day.”
It’s certainly true that the iConnect Financial business model provides everything a broker needs to give their customers a top quality service: the industry’s best software platform, best-practice sales and CRM systems, branded client products, property market intel, automated marketing services and more. “The idea is that we give the broker fully comprehensive operational support so they can focus on putting their financial expertise to work” says Leith. “We’ve even made compliance as easy as it possibly can be” he adds.
With the brand really starting to take off, iConnect Financial have commenced a recruitment drive to add more brokers in anticipation of a busy property market come spring. “We currently have more than 30 brokers on board, however this is the quiet time of the year and they’re really busy” says Leith. “We’re very interested to hear from qualified brokers who may be interested in partnering with us. There’s a real demand for more iConnect Financial brokers right across the country, but we’re particularly interested in hearing from brokers in Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania” Leith says.
Joining iConnect Financial requires no capital outlay. There are no lock in contracts and a generous commission structure is available for the right brokers. Professional business and compliance support is provided, along with Mercury – Connective’s own specialist IT Platform, developed in-house. Most importantly, iConnect Financial provides an excellent digital marketing program staffed by digital marketing experts as part of the package – a level of expertise and a financial investment that most small brokerages simply can’t afford.
“The major benefit for iConnect Financial brokers is the increased earning potential” says Leith. “If you’re a professional, qualified broker with a good reputation, then we want to hear from you. Just visit our website to find out more.”
