(PRWEB) March 20, 2006
As MEM Consumer Finance Ltd continues to grow, one of its core brands, My Payday Loan (http://www.mypaydayloan.co.uk ) has appointed Alister Comrie of The Maasai Consultancy as their professional marketing consultant.
Alister will be developing an ongoing and comprehensive marketing strategy for My Payday Loan, including looking away from the traditional online advertising of the cash advance internet market.
He explains, "The online consumer market has a limited number of users and My Payday Loan has a significant share of the market space for payday loans. There are many people out there who would benefit from a financial product which helps remedy short term cash needs who simply do not know the alternative exists. These same people are having to pay additional charges on unauthorised overdrafts and credit card over limit fees. A payday loan allows them to budget for unexpected outgoings the following month rather than struggle to find the cash for their immediate needs."
Alister's extensive market development experience has been gained working with clients such as HSBC, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Boeing, Motorola and Sony over the last 15 years. In addition he has headed up client pertations at advertising agencies that include WPP 141, Saatchi's, Publicis, and Lintas.
Alister will be working on a variety of marketing projects for My Payday Loan and MEM Consumer Finance Ltd, creating additional consumer awareness for them and for the industry as a whole. "People need to be aware that short term loans do not come only in the form of check cashing or pawn broking for the sub-prime market. Payday loans provide a lifestyle cash option for the prime and near prime consumer to allow them to manage their finances on a month by month basis. This is an extremely exciting market development and one that we can see delivering real life enhancing benefits to the majority of the UK's population."
Kirsty Auchincloss, COO of MEM Consumer Finance Ltd says, "The addition of Alister to the My Payday Loan team is a great coup for the business. Look out for the fruit of his labours coming soon!"
