New SMS texting tools help boost customer engagement and conversion
texting can’t be an effective sales tool? Think again. New research shows that 58% of borrowers respond within just 10 minutes when receiving a text, and 76% of borrowers think texting can speed up the loan process.
To help our clients capitalize on these texting rends and boost customer engagement and conversion, we recently released new functionality in our Velocify by Ellie Mae LeadManager™ solution. The new functionality allows sales teams to:
Communicate directly with prospects’ cell phones and see entire chat histories
bulk messages and promotional campaigns
Send automated text based on key triggers (e.g. rate changes, deadlines)
Use templates and wizards to help ensure compliance
