Mint and Rocket Mortgage Reveal New Technology to Foster the Next Generation of Financial Empowerment

Mint and Rocket Mortgage Reveal New Technology to Foster the Next Generation of Financial Empowerment

SAN DIEGO and DETROIT, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, financial empowerment app Mint by Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), and Rocket Companies (NYSE: RKT), announced a first-of-its kind partnership in which Rocket Mortgage – the first fully digital mortgage experience – is now integrated into the Mint app via API to create a fast, simplified refinance experience for homeowners.

As part of this integration, Mint users are able to pre-fill information such as current mortgage information that they’ve added to their Mint profile. They are then able to seamlessly search for, apply and lock-in mortgage refinance rates with Rocket Mortgage in as few as eight minutes, instead of days or weeks – all powered by the Rocket Mortgage API. This is the first time the Rocket Mortgage experience has been directly integrated into a personal finance platform.

“Across the country, Americans are struggling with their finances as many face difficult economic times. As interest rates are near an all-time low, now is an ideal time for many to consider refinancing their mortgages and save thousands,” said Varun Krishna, SVP & Head of Consumer Finance at Intuit. “For too long, the refinance process has been an annoyingly tedious and overwhelming experience for all of us to find the right lender and loan for our situation. We’re excited to help simplify the process for Mint users with this integration of Rocket Mortgage and give our customers some peace of mind during this already stressful time.”

With the integration of Rocket Mortgage’s digital refinance application, Mint users can now seamlessly find the best options for lowering their rate through the easy-to-navigate Mint interface combined with the powerful Rocket Mortgage API. This new feature allows users to pre-fill data from Mint, skipping through additional account creation and data entry, greatly reducing the time it

Lead Generation Solutions During Economic Hardships

Jessica is a digital expert & founder of Valux, LLC, a digital marketing company that helps businesses complete the digital transformation.

It’s no secret to businesses of all sizes that the Covid-19 pandemic has been detrimental to the economy’s health. We’re facing the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. Bringing in new business isn’t easy during a thriving economy, let alone during a recession. Potential consumers and clients tend to choose what they invest in more carefully, think more about purchases and take longer to buy.

It’s time to think outside the typical cold call and poorly targeted ad approach that many companies take when they’ve got the “extra” money to spend. Digital marketing is a powerful addition to your lead generation efforts, and your entire campaign must be executed flawlessly to prevent wasting money and time.

Ask Your Digital Marketing Team To Target Your Cold Calls

There is nothing wrong with a traditional, sales-driven cold call. Family-owned businesses and large corporations have been generating leads this way for many years because it works. If you work with a digital marketing team to formulate your campaign, ask them to help you aim your cold calls rather than replacing them.

When implemented correctly, digital marketing research will target the cold call clients your business should be contacting, instead of using a time-wasting hit-or-miss method. By doing so, you can streamline your process, your contacts and your time.

Let The Uptick In Internet Use Work In Your Favor

Humans everywhere found themselves suddenly thrust into a work-from-home environment during the pandemic. My company is an integrated sales and marketing service provider, and many of our clients are facing the same challenge: The work-from-home schedule makes it harder to reach the decision-maker. This is one of the reasons why, when

Hightower Unveils New Center for Leadership to Train and Equip Next Generation of Business Leaders

Hightower Unveils New Center for Leadership to Train and Equip Next Generation of Business Leaders

Press release content from PR Newswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

CHICAGO, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Hightower today unveiled its new Hightower Center for Leadership, an education and training program designed to empower the next generation of leaders in Hightower advisory businesses. The program – designed for soon-to-be partners, lead advisors, relationship managers, operational professionals, business managers and those involved with strategic decision-making – is focused on preparing wealth management leaders at a time when many practice founders are transitioning to retirement.

“Preparing future business leaders is critical for client retention and continued growth. While many second-generation professionals may be highly skilled in client services, they often lack management and leadership experience,” said Hightower’s Chief Growth Officer Scott Holsopple. “The new Center for Leadership provides members of the Hightower community with the opportunity to gain intensive training in the skills they need to grow their businesses organically and inorganically – including strategic planning, financial analysis, team management, marketing, governance, M&A deal structuring and more.”

The two-year, certificate-granting program provides simulation-based training delivered by top Hightower leaders and industry experts, including Philip Palaveev of The Ensemble Practice. Trainees are organized into teams of five or six members and given a simulated firm to manage for the duration of the program. The firm comes complete with a history, team dynamics, operational decisions, staff and compensation situations, equity structures and obstacles to growth. Teams work closely with a coach to address the firm’s challenges. Hightower expects to have over 40 team members participate in the initial launch of the program. In addition to learning through the rigors of the two-year curriculum, they will also benefit from the peer-to-peer networking and community that is created.

The training program involves 100 education hours, with monthly
