Why We’re Different

In Depth Knowledge of the Mortgage Industry

Nat, our company President, was previously the Marketing Director for a large mortgage broker that served customers in 26 states and generated almost all of its leads through its own websites. Anna, one of the other partners at ILM Marketing, was the Compliance Manager at the same company.

We have an in-depth understanding of what works for lead generation, content marketing, social media, local SEO, PPC (pay per click), and web site development in this highly competitive space and tightly regulated industry.

Give us a call today at (866) 491-5479 to find out how ILM Marketing can help you increase the exposure to your brand, build authority, generate leads, market to your sphere & more.

Customer Feedback

I can't thank Nat and his team enough. I have been in the mortgage business for a long time and leads were always something I hated to deal with. The cost to buy leads that where sold multiple times was crazy. I had tried many lead companies and so-called SEO experts with just ok results while spending a ton of cash. It was never worth it. Then I meet Nat and everything has changed his SEO work is second to none and his knowledge of marketing is the best I have seen. The ROI is so much better than I even expected. Thanks Nat for your knowledge and support. My leads business would not be the same without you and your team.

- Chuck / Real Estate Resouce Home Loans

The best in the business!! The team is not only well versed in digital marketing but because of their specific experience in real estate and lending, our campaigns always have a strong ROI. I look forward to working with ILM Marketing on all future projects and will be referring our best Realtor partners to do the same.

- Jason / City 1st

They have proved themselves time and again. In addition to ILM's competence, it's their integrity that is equally as priceless. No short cuts by the ILM team, they always deliver on their commitments and put in the hard work. ILM treats our marketing dollars like it's their own, always working pragmatically to optimize results within our budget. In short, we would never make a move without the advice of ILM.

 - Greg / Alpha Mortgage

We have used ILM Marketing for the last 4+ years for all of our website design, SEO, PPC campaign management, and miscellaneous CRM projects. I knew Nat and Anna from working together at a previous employer, so when they started ILM Marketing I knew I would be getting a high value service. They have cutting edge services, delivered professionally and on-time, and at a low cost. I would recommend ILM Marketing to anyone looking to outsource the complex and ever changing world of online marketing, as well as more traditional marketing sources.

- Brian / Angel Oak Home Loans

I absolutely love ILM Marketing services. Nat created an awesome to the point website for me and a marketing plan that really works. I would highly recommend them!

- Mindy / Mortgage Pros

Nat and his team of marketing experts really know their stuff. As a marketing director I've relied on their recommendations and they have never steered me wrong. Not only are they the right team to choose when your looking for marketing, but they are very affordable and don't nickle and dime you the way other vendors have in the past. I can't say enough good things about how well they have treated us. We will continue to choose ILM Marketing for all future projects!

- Nick / Alpha Mortgage

Fantastic work... Nat really knows his business. If you need help with Google Ads / FB ads - Nat is your guy!! Highly recommend!

- Jackie / Spectrum Mortgage

Before coming to ILM our online presence and online advertising was very poor to put it nicely. We used to throw money at online ads and hope for the best. We knew that "Hope Marketing" was not a good business plan but we didn't know what to do. That was until we found ILM. It is so true how connecting with the right business partner can change everything! Nat and his team have taken our online presence and online advertising to the next level! We have been a client of ILM for going on 3 years now. We love how Nat and the team keeps us updated on how we are doing on each ad we have with them with monthly reporting and ad overview calls we have plus how Nat and his team constantly focuses on finding the best bang for our buck with our ad spend. Our advertising budget has a direct ROI that we are able to measure month in and month out. ILM is the real deal. Our business has grown by Leaps and Bounds since working with them. Your hunt for a good Marketing firm has ended.

ILM Marketing custom builds sites for regional and national mortgage companies down to individual loan officers. We listen to our clients’ needs and build sites around their goals, whether it’s lead capture, educational, or both.

The cost for sites depends upon the number of pages, revisions, CRM integration, and other variables. We also offer some out-of-the-box options which have a monthly fee but little to no upfront development costs. We can also create a site and duplicate it for multiple branches and/or loan officers.

Examples of some custom websites:
Luxury Mortgage
Luxury Mortgage Wholesale
AT Lending
Excelerate Capital
Bayshore Mortgage Funding
BluePoint Mortgage
LoanStream Wholesale
Integrity Home Mortgage Corporation

Example of Out of the Box Websites:

Mortgage Pay Per Click / Generate Leads

We help mortgage companies generate leads through targeted Google Ads and Bing Ads per per click (PPC) campaigns.

Why do we love PPC for lead generation?

Unlike social, Google and Bing search campaign target users who are on their computers, tablets, and phones actively searching for mortgage information.

How much is set-up?

Set-up typically ranges between $300 -$1000 depending on the number of campaigns needed.

How much is management?

We charge 15% of the advertising spend for the first $5K, and 12% of the spend for any amount over $5K. Minimum monthly management is $150.

How much do I have to spend with Google Ads or Bing Ads?

We are only taking on clients in the mortgage space who plan to spend at least $1,000/month in ad spend.

Mortgage Copywriting & Print Collateral

Why use us for your mortgage copywriting needs? First, we understand the industry. We’ve worked in it, we have many clients in the space who we write for, and we have a good idea of what could lead to a compliance nightmare down the road. We have three awesome copywriters, all who were English Majors, that work locally.

Writing for the Web

Writing for the search engines and the end user can be a bit of a juggling act. It used to be that you could cram a bunch of keywords into your pages, get a handful of links, and boom, you ranked. That’s not the case anymore. Now more than ever good content is king and it is a necessity for not landing in Google’s doghouse. A bunch of thin blog posts or pages could result in a Google Panda penalty and wipe out your traffic overnight

Types of Mortgage Copywriting Projects We Handle:

  • Website Copy – pages and blog posts
  • Promotional Print Material – whitepapers, brochures and flyers
  • PowerPoint Presentations
  • Email Newsletter Content
  • Email Drip Campaigns

Pricing Information

Because each piece is different, we typically quote project-by-project. We do have many clients who ask for work on a continual basis (i.e. 3 website pages, 3 blog posts, and one email newsletter a month, etc). For this type of on-going work, we do not need to quote every time. The quoting process is pretty simple. You just call Anna, discuss what you’re looking for and, most of the time, we can give you a price over the phone.

Local SEO / Map Listings / Reviews

SEO stands for search engine optimization. It involves many different elements including writing great, unique copy, having strong meta tags and descriptions, optimizing site speed, inbound and internal link management, and much more. Whether you’re looking for assistance developing the architecture of your site or simply need a site audit done to help you identify areas for improvement, we can help.

What We Do

  • Website Audits
  • On-Page SEO Improvements
  • Google Business Listing Review/Set-up
  • Web Citation Creation and Management
  • Recommend Ideas for Building Links

What We Do Not Do

  • We do not guarantee rankings.
  • We do not do link building.
  • We do not focus on individual keyword rankings. We focus on traffic.

Pricing Information

Pricing will vary based upon the needs of the customer. Please call (866) 491-5479 for a quote.

Marketing for Wholesale Lenders

We assist wholesale mortgage lenders from around the country with their marketing needs. We understand that targeting brokers and corespondent lenders is very different from a consumer facing retail business. Whether you are looking to develop a new website, design a white paper highlighting your newest product, build a remarketing campaign to keep you in front of your customers, or create social campaigns targeting mortgage professionals in your footprint, we can help.

Give us today at (866) 491-5479 to discuss your marketing needs.
