Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 9, 2009
Speed Equity, LLC today announced the nationwide launch of its Affiliate Program. Specifically created to help Mortgage & real estate professionals stay profitable in tough economic times, it does so by creating a Unique Selling Position (USP) that completely sets them apart from their competition.
The mortgage and refi booms are a distant memory. The recession has no end in sight. Research proves that half of today's qualified borrowers don't trust their loan reps and competition for new business is about to get even uglier. "The question you should be asking is, what am I offering that's different from the guy down the street", says Mortgage Reduction Expert, Harj Gill.
Enter the Speed Equity Affiliate Program, a marketing lifeline for mortgage and real estate professionals designed to win over new clients and turn old ones into stark raving referral generating machines.
The Speed Equity System is an equity acceleration program created and pioneered by Mr. Gill in Australia in 1997. Gill is also the international bestselling author of "How to Own Your Home Years Sooner" and is credited for starting a grassroots consumer movement that revolutionized the Australian mortgage and banking industries with his program.
He first set his sights on the North American market in 2003, the same year the Australian subsidiary of HSBC introduced a mortgage product based on his book and system. "That's when I knew it was time to move on because almost everyone in the country knew about it (his system)," said Gill.
In May 2007, NBC's Las Vegas station featured Gill on its "Saving You Money" segment as well as its evening news broadcasts and caused a sensation in Sin City. "It was incredible," remembers the Emmy Award winning former producer of the segments, Nick Di Archangel. "We had calls to the newsroom telling us that people were leaving the casino gaming floors to watch Harj's interviews."
Despite creating huge amounts of interest whenever he appears in the media, Gill has never wavered in his quest to share his expert knowledge with homeowners across the world and bring the Speed Equity System to them at an affordable price - regardless of what other copycats of his concept are doing.
"I first came across this at a seminar by a company offering a similar program for $3500," said the President of NJ based Corinthian Capital Group, Robert Gough. "I thought it was brilliant but I simply couldn't justify adding the huge price tag to my clients' closing costs," he professed.
Larry McFarland, a Crye-Leike real estate broker from Clarksville, TN echoed Gough's sentiments. "It's already economically tough for people and as much as I loved the idea I just couldn't charge thousands of dollars for it no matter how it's presented," McFarland said. Both men found Gill and his Speed Equity System through researching the internet and are now offering it to their clients at little to no cost.
The feature that makes the Speed Equity Affiliate Program so unique is that it has an in-built technology platform that actively promotes the affiliate to users of the software and asks them to generate referral business back to the affiliate that originated the subscription.
Gill said it was important when developing the program that it not only enabled affiliates to offer his system to their clients at negligible cost but that it built their credibility and gave them constant, ongoing exposure without them having to do much work. "The end result is that it exponentially increases the marketing reach of our affiliates to generate more core business as well as making them look like super heroes to their clients," he said.
These benefits saw Bryan Bogen, from Spectrum Financial Strategies in CT, snap up the exclusivity for the entire state for the next two years. "It was a no brainer," said Bogen. "We're working with the guy that invented the concept. It presents us as financial educators to our clients and adds tremendous value to what we offer."
To give affiliates true exclusivity Gill is limiting the number of North American mortgage and real estate professionals that can join his program to less than 1% in each industry. For more information about the Speed Equity Affiliate Program please visit
