AFG SMART marketing program

It’s no accident that AFG won Aggregator Marketing Platform of the year for 2018. SMART marketing is our custom-built, industry-leading marketing and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform designed to help brokers business achieve great outcomes both for their customers and their bottom lines.

SMART allows brokers to improve customer retention, protect their trail and drive acquisition of new customers through targeted communications, the right data analytics and a dynamic and professional website that helps their business be the best it can be.

We’re all about a great customer experience, and we’re all about business growth. SMART is just that; the smart way to get ahead.

The core Residential SMART program reaches your residential prospects and customers, positioning you as the finance expert. For a small additional fee, you can add on Business SMART and/or Commercial SMART to your marketing package.

Business SMART delivers a suite of campaigns that integrate into your Residential SMART program with the focus to drive business finance leads and prospects.

For brokers specialising in commercial finance, Commercial SMART operates as a standalone marketing solution. The focus here is on active commercial customers with deals written in FLEX.

SMART results

AFG’s SMART program is designed to deliver the results that matter most to brokers such as increases
in customer retention, and repeat business from existing customers as well as significant overall
cumulative growth.

As the graph illustrates, on average our brokers on SMART are now seeing well over double the cumulative portfolio growth of our brokers yet to join.

For our brokers who use our SMART marketing program, the results speak for themselves. As the graph illustrates, on average our brokers on SMART are now seeing well over double the cumulative portfolio growth of our brokers yet to join.

Our broker portfolio growth can stem from many things including the fact we think we recruit Australia’s best in the business and have an increasing market share of the country’s brokers. It could well also steam from the fact that the SMART campaigns, websites, analytics and materials work so well and help deliver this impressive growth differential. Regardless, there is no question SMART is helping the trend and we like to think we’re a key driver behind these great results our brokers are enjoying!
