TORONTO, Jan. 23, 2024 /CNW/ – Pineapple Financial Inc. (NYSE American: PAPL), a tech-focused mortgage brokerage with an integrated network of partner brokerages and agents across Canada, today announced the launch of its custom eSignature and advertising banner management software designed to enhance lead conversion and drive customer acquisition, unlocking new mortgage opportunities for its brokers.
“Our focus is on building cutting-edge technology that helps our brokers thrive in an ever-evolving landscape, driving continuous revenue,” said Pineapple President and COO Kendall Marin. “With our new eSignature and ad banner component, we help our brokers cost-effectively strengthen their brand, build trust, drive leads, engage on social media, and generate revenue.”
Building on that trust, the banners increase the broker’s marketing value and drive conversions by advertising special offers, showcasing testimonials, promoting new content and events or directly setting up appointment bookings. This feature is particularly impactful for brand recognition and lead generation, as according to a Wisestamp survey,* email signature marketing created an average of 22% more clicks, 32% more email replies, 10% more social media reach and 15% more leads.
Beyond revenue generation, the software also serves as a broker retention strategy. “Email signature companies charge for this functionality, but we offer it to our brokers for free. Eliminating third-party sources also translates to cost savings for both the brokers and the business,” added Christa Mitchell, CSO of Pineapple.
Direct integration within the Pineapple Core system creates a seamless and hassle-free experience for mortgage brokers. With the eSignature and banner updating automatically across all cloud-based applications and their custom broker website in real-time, the process becomes efficient and eliminates the complexities associated with coding. Additionally, the eSignature and ad banner can be integrated into other applications such as Outlook or MacMail, creating a consistent and cohesive brand identity.
The software also exemplifies Pineapple’s commitment to data management and compliance with optional centralized control over the type of banner information displayed for brokerage owners and security protocols aligned with industry regulations.
Shubha Dasgupta, CEO of Pineapple, noted, “We understand just how important the first impression is when building trust with consumers, and we couldn’t ignore the revenue potential that a professional email signature could bring for our agents. With eye-catching visuals and a compelling call to action, our mortgage brokers can make a lasting impression that exudes professionalism and builds credibility for strong customer relationships.”
