SMS for Lending Companies

Businesses both large and small have needed to adapt to shifting consumer patterns in 2020. As customers navigate the complexities of 2020, lending companies must become a trustworthy and accessible resource for information and support. 



According to The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Center for Microeconomic Data, total household debt increased by $87 billion (0.6%) to $14.35 trillion in the third quarter of 2020. The largest rises in debt in Q3 2020 occurred among mortgage balances ($85 billion), student loans ($9 billion), and auto loans ($17 billion).


Consumers increasingly conduct online research while deciding on a lender. Non-bank online lenders are also becoming a popular alternative provider of financing individuals and small businesses (Federal Reserve). It’s critical that lending companies establish credibility through both content and also responsive online communication. 


Why Text?

Texting is a quick and easy way for consumers to get in touch with lending institutions. Here are some common use cases for SMS within the loan process:


  • Automatically get in touch with leads after they complete a web form
