Evergreen Business Capital’s Mobile Site

Evergreen Business Capital Partners in Seattle, WA launched their mobile web site (not a mobile app) in February 2014.   It is designed to allow their lending partners to quickly estimate payments in the field for a prospective Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 loan.   Their lending partners – who are normally bankers, CPAs and other financial firms – are now able to get data for a potential loan project immediately on their smart phone, and they can email it to anyone on the spot. When that happens, Evergreen receives an emailed copy of the estimate that was sent so they can see the volume of estimates that are in progress and can be aware of prospective incoming loans. Lending professionals are using mobile information more frequently and consistently, so having access to 504 loan information on a phone deepens the working relationships between lenders and Evergreen Business Capital.    A few screen shots of the mobile web site are shown below. The left image is the home page, and the right image is the estimated payment results from a loan calculation.

Try it yourself – just type in m.evergreen504.com. We offer these brandable, customized calculators to CDCs across the nation.

Mobile Purchasers do Research, then Buy Quickly

A recent study by Google and Nielsen showed how mobile purchasers search for and access information, then make purchases quickly.  The study was published in Nov 2013 and is entitled “Mobile Path to Purchase: Five Key Findings.”  We are going to emphasize two of the five points from the report in this article. Mobile path to purchaseOne of the key implications of the report is for advertisers: “… consumers visit business websites on their phones an average of 6 times in their purchase process.”   Having a mobile-friendly site for potential customers is a key to getting these sales.   If you don’t have one, they will find a competitor who does. Another key implication is immediacy: “more than half (55%)of mobile consumers want to complete the purchase within the hour, and 83% want to purchase within a day.”  You need to make it easy for customers to contact you and start that transaction with “click to call” or provide them with mobile checkout capability so they can buy it without speaking to you. Both of these findings reinforce the fact that if you don’t have a mobile-friendly web site now, you need to get one quickly!  it doesn’t matter what you are selling, products or services, if you want to attract new clients, one of the best and most efficient tools is a great mobile experience for all those mobile internet users.
