Our range of commercial financial services marketing campaigns
More Than Words is an established and experienced financial marketing agency with one foot in the virtual world and one foot in the real world.
Despite being a traditionally conservative industry, we’ve seen a concerted move by lenders and brokers to diversify their commercial financial services marketing activities.
While the traditional methods of direct marketing still work really well, there is now a fierce online battle to win the commercial finance lead generation war.
Lenders and brokers are increasingly investing in:
- developing their websites to achieve the highest possible search engine rankings and
- building libraries of easily-found, high-quality, Google-optimised articles answering the questions about commercial mortgages and commercial finance products as they approach the time of making a decision.

Web-based inbound marketing strategies for financial services firms targeting the commercial sector
How do clients find your company and its commercial mortgages and commercial financial products with web-based inbound marketing?
Inbound marketing requires a lot of time and effort however, when compared with all other forms of marketing, it has the greatest chance of developing into a long-term high-quality lead generation channel.
The inbound marketing services we offer to commercial lending and mortgage providers are:
The three most successful types of online financial services marketing campaigns are:
1. A fully-optimised website with a library of high-quality articles on your financial products
A handful of commercial lenders and brokers regularly create and upload long-form articles for their websites.
Each article is designed to answer a specific question that a potential future customer has in detail and in plain English.
After a while, these libraries of content greatly lift the search engine rankings of these lenders’ and brokers’ websites and every page on them.
A potential borrower is now able to find detailed answers to the top 50 or 100 questions they’re likely to ask from the handful of different lenders and brokers who have invested heavily in online content.
Whenever a visitor is on one of these pages, the lender or broker invites them to get in touch by leaving their details on the contact form.
Just in case the visitor is not ready to buy yet, the lender or the broker will often invite the visitor to leave their email address and stay in touch with them that way.
2. An active presence on social media
The greatest value of social media for commercial finance companies is in building a substantial network of followers who have an interest in commercial lending or mortgage products.
Every day, you communicate with these followers by posting useful and actionable content.
Sometimes, the messages are short posts – other times, you offer free downloadable content, infographics, or video feeds.
Lenders often use social media to build their network of brokers and introducers.
3. Appearing on 3rd party websites respected and trusted by your target markets
In addition to writing high quality articles for your own website, we approach other websites on your behalf and we ask them if we can write an article for their readers containing a link back to a specific page on your website.
For example, we would write an in-depth and plain English article on portfolio finance.
That article would be posted on a 3rd party website and it would link back to the portfolio finance product page on your website.
Posting on other companies’ website – also known as guest posting:
- is inexpensive and easy to arrange,
- can introduce you, your company, and its products to a much wider audience, and
- helps to improve the search engine rankings of your website, specifically the page you link back to.
The value of inbound marketing for commercial finance firms
Inbound marketing allows you to build up over time an audience of hundreds and later thousands of future potential commercial customers.
These prospective clients trust you and your company because of the quality of the information and insights they’re exposed to:
- when searching online,
- when they receive email newsletters from you, and
- when they see your posts on social media.
When they’re at or near the point of searching for commecial finance, they’re far more likely to turn to you and your company because of the credibility you’ve built up in their minds.
They’ll actively choose you because you have demonstrated your experience and your knowledge to them.
They feel confident that you are the person and yours is the company to do the job well for them.
Over time and as long as you continue to add to your online library of articles and manage your social media presence, you should expect the number of positive enquiries which turn into sales lead to increase month by month.
Outbound marketing for commercial lending and mortgages
More Than Words offers two forms of outbound marketing for commercial lending and mortgage lenders and brokers:
Select your own target audience from a GDPR-compliant email database of over 350,000 decision makers.
Over 12 campaigns, build up your brand awareness and your industry authority among this group of potential clients selected by you.
You can also add on your existing database of clients and direct enquirers to each broadcast.
We can either make follow-up phone calls to the decision-makers on your email database or we can select an entirely different subset of potential clients from our UK B2B database
Different types of marketing reach different audiences
Many of the decision makers you contact via email marketing may not be reachable on social media and vice versa.
All companies, including commercial finance lenders and brokers, should use as many different routes to market as they can.
Outbound marketing is more expensive than inbound marketing however the results from outbound marketing are much more controllable and predictable in the short term compared with inbound marketing.
Because we send 12 advertisements for you over the course of the year with our email marketing service, we can build up recipients’ confidence in you and what you do in much the same way as we do with our inbound marketing campaigns.
However, with outbound marketing, you control when and where the message is seen unlike with inbound marketing which is dependent on clients’ behaviours and the algorithms used on Google and on social media platforms.
