WE WROTE AND HAD THIS JINGLE PRODUCED FOR A MORTGAGE CLIENT WHO WANTED PEOPLE TO REMEMBER THEIR PHONE NUMBER

LISTEN TO THE CORNERSTONE JINGLE

It is important that people know who you are, what unique benefit you offer them and most importantly how to take the next step. That next step involves picking up the phone and calling us. The radio jingle which David Franklin wrote and produced for us tells our customers that they can expect very competitive rates, a high level of service and that we will expedite their loan process quickly. At the same time it committed our phone number to the memory of an entire market. A lot of jingles are corny and just plain bad. When David recommended we do this I have to admit I was skeptical however the result was an amazing jingle that has produced amazing results. David knows how to write words that cause the exact desired actions.”
