“We really appreciate the effort you all made on the site. It’s nice to work with people who really care which comes across in the great follow up, attention to detail, and excellent recommendations that were provided through this process. For a boring business (mortgages), you gave us such a great look from a branding standpoint.”
–  Damon Germanides – Co-founder

Website

Insignia Mortgage has a strong modern brand with fresh solid color and matching typography. We enhanced and translated this brand into their website and graphics. The website promotes their unique mortgage products and presents the company founders as thought leaders by showcasing their awards and mentions in the Wall Street Journal and other leading trade publications.

Print advertising

The mortgage industry is highly competitive. We leverage print advertising, which remains a powerful and necessary way to reach target clients. We design and manage ads that appear in the MLS, Los Angeles Times, and the OC Register. Compliance with state regulations is critical and we make sure that ads are reviewed and comply with regulations.

Email Campaigns

One of Insignia’s differentiators is their consistent email strategy of weekly rate sheets. Over 7,000 subscribers receive the rate sheet which also includes Insignia’s original market commentary which we also published on their blog. We run campaigns through MailChimp and manage Insignia’s growing email lists.

Adwords

Our Google-Certified marketing team works with Insignia to identify key markets and search terms for AdWords campaigns. We track Insignia’s traffic through Google Analytics and Moz in order to make adjustments in real-time.

Print Collateral

We have designed Insignia letterhead and business cards for their team. We also designed a “Property Template” that Insignia can customize to specific mortgage deals. We designed their PowerPoint deck to be repurposed as a printed leave-behind for clients.

Press

Damon and Chris, Insignia’s co-founders, are truly mortgage industry thought leaders and have been profiled twice in the Wall Street Journal as well as in other leading industry publications such as the National Mortgage News and The Scotsman Guide. We leverage this press through online press releases, the website banner, blog articles, and email campaigns.
