2019 Semi-Annual Infographic

745,000 Monthly Visitors

Everything in Financer begins and ends with our users in mind. Just within the first semester of 2019 we have seen a 140% increase on our monthly traffic as compared to 2018. Our monthly visitors are now approximately 745,000 per month, and our projection analysis expects them to reach 950,000 by the end of the year.

220% Growth in High Competition Keywords

That means that by the end of the year we expect more than 11 million unique visitors on our website.However, our improvement in traffic had not been only quantitative, but even more so, qualitative: We have seen an average 220% growth on search engine ranking page’s results for the most competitive finance keywords across all markets.

High intent keywords are usually on the top 1% in terms of cost per click for paid advertising campaigns. Financer is bringing this valuable traffic to our partners for free

Keywords with very high purchase/action intent such as “personal loans”, “payday loans”, “auto loans”,  “low interest loans” are prominently showing our own articles and comparison tools among the top 5 results for both short and long tail variations. In fact, among other loan comparison websites, our website ranks at the top 1 position on search engine results pages for 58% of all loan related queries.

$140M+ in Generated Loans

This exceptional performance in such high purchase intent keywords is further reflected in the conversion rates and their resulting loans amounts that are consistently above the industry average. The value added funnel approach we follow have resulted in an estimated issuance of $143,755,200 in loans by our financial partners, just within the first 6 months of 2019. If current growth rates keep steady we expect that by the end 2019 a total of $350,000,000 will be issued as a direct result from our referrals.

159,000+ Finance Keywords

Our website is now established among the top financial websites specialized in loan services reviews & recommendations for all major search engines. We are ranking for more than 159,000+ finance related keywords just for Google search results dominating our niche in all 26 markets that we are fully operational.

Our high recognition in the online loan market, is been further enhanced by our team of 32 full time finance experts, each of which is specialized in a unique local financial market. This customized and localized approach is helping us reach efficiently the most relevant, local consumers who are interested in local financial services.

1200+ Financial Partners

The aforementioned approach that we follow brings a major competitive advantage over rigid competitors who apply the “one solution fits all” approach. Applying this high degree of specialty was the driving force that lead us to have more than 1248 corporate partners, of which 390 were added just within the first half of 2019.

Conversion rates as reported by our partners have seen a 10%+ improvement from 2018. This is directly attributed to higher quality of leads/traffic

On average, each partner receives an excess of 2,292 high purchase intent leads from our website per year, which is double than last year’s figure.

100% Speed-test Scores

In 2019 our website has seen a drastic improvement in the technological and user experience aspects as well. Our website average page speed loading time is at 1,5 seconds, and our GTmextix reports show 100% scores in both Yslow & Pagespeed ranking. Key components of our interface have been redesigned to further enhance our user’s experience.

Constantly Evolving UX

Our comparison tool has been adjusted to give a faster, more concise response, and our offer results are now ranked according to several key factors such as loan rates, total costs, ratings and other settings that can be customized by the visitor. Several parts of our layout have been revamped, such as the review system according to what our UX analysis indicates as the optimal approach.

Those improvements are meant to give to the visitor a seamless user experience that is helpful, fast and reliable. Our first measurements reveal a further increase in our offer click through rates, loan conversion rates, and a drastic reduction in our bounce rates, which all validate our hypothesis.

150,000 Brand Followers

Our growth in social media followers and engagement has been exponential in 2019. Collectively, our social media have more than 150,000 followers, across Facebook & LinkedIn. Our videos have been watched more than 200,000 times, and our posts have seen an average 4500%+ growth in overall engagement as compared to the previous year.

In second half of 2019 we are preparing a more ambitious social media expansion strategy, on which we will be available across more social media platforms, with regular localized content. By doing so, we project to double our social media following, and put emphasis on more video and image content sharing channels such as YouTube and Instagram, promoting our partner’s services & brands in the process.
