Product: SoCal Hard Money Lender
Results: Highest revenue month in 2 years


    A boutique Orange County private equity / hard money lender seeks to re-position itself within the marketplace after a partner buy-out and major internal restructuring.

  • The Challenge

    The company was small and relatively unknown. Their tagline "we make loans that banks can't or won't" is generic. The campaign must reach three target markets: the mortgage broker, the investor and the property owner / borrower.

  • The Solution

    Based on branding sessions conducted with top decision-makers, Epicenter identified key differentiators that were relevant to each target market, and tied them all in with the "10" concept:

    . Broker - a profitable deal of 2+ points, closed within 10 days
    . Investor - an ROI of 10% or more, locked in within 10 days
    . Owner - cash in hand, with a closed loan within 10 days.

    Epicenter created a fun out-of-category direct marketing campaign, supported with a pay-per-click internet strategy and live events targeting brokers and financial planners. Based on the "10" concepts the campaign positioned Alliance as SoCal's direct lending authority for custom coastal loans. Case studies were utilized to showcase upscale properties and incredible results. The cost-effective print concept worked for all targets with simple black plate changes.

  • The Results

    Within 5 months of the campaign launch, Alliance enjoyed its highest revenue month in two years, in spite of a "mortgage meltdown" marketplace. The positioning of Southern California's direct lending authority led to Alliance being featured in an article on the front page of the Wall Street Journal's Financial Section..
