Taking a Deal to the Finish Line: A Marketer’s Perspective

Commercial Capital BIDCO's Marketing Director, Leah Runge Waldrop, was recently featured in Deal Maker Magazine's latest issue. In this article, Leah was able to share her perspective on Marketing's role when it comes to getting a across the finish line. Leah maps out the key areas to focus as a commercial lending broker - whether you're just starting out or you're a seasoned vet to the industry. Marketing should not be an overlooked role or department within your company, but instead one that should be strategically supported in order to grow your brand and your business - thus aiding you in the process of closing deals.

Here's a quick snippet from the article:

"It will be difficult, to say the least, to get a deal off the starting line if the runner doesn’t know how you can help them get to the finish line – and at best, it will be an uphill race. At the end of the day, you must continue to tell your story and experience as a commercial loan broker to your current clients throughout the loan process. By utilizing the tactics from your marketing strategy to narrate the story and paint the picture, your clients will be reminded throughout the deal that you have the expertise and creativity to help them reach their goals."
