Using Reverse Mortgage Direct Mail to Get Senior Leads

Effective ways to improve your reverse mortgage direct marketing campaign.

Reverse mortgage direct mail marketing, if done right, can spike up your lead generation especially if you’re targeting aged prospects. Especially with the stay-at-home orders related to coronavirus concerns, customers are more likely to pay attention to what they receive in the mail and actually read them.

At Amsive, we found that aged internet leads have a 200-300 percent higher response rate after receiving a direct mail expressing interest in refinancing a mortgage. We’ve also observed a spike in interest among homeowners aged 62+ with a PACE or HERO loan and homeowners that are currently in a reverse mortgage.

Create an Effective Image

This is crucial today with the current crisis. You want to establish trust between you and your target clients, especially for aged customers. Carefully craft your messaging and choose a graphic that you want to project before your mail is distributed. Always remember, first impressions count.

Don’t Assume People Don’t Understand Technology

Even if you are targeting an aged demographic, you’ll be surprised that some seniors are quite tech-savvy. Never assume that they don’t know how to use computers or don’t own a smartphone. 

Don’t hesitate to ask them to visit your website for more information or direct them to your online forms. They may not be active on social media, but they are likely able to do a quick search on Google and visit your website.
