What if you could have a crystal ball that showed you who your prospective client was, before you turned up at their door?
If you could understand more about their interests, affiliations and even their location – would this help your rapport at the appraisal?
More importantly – would you like to ensure that your lone worker safeguarding steps are thorough enough and that no stone has been left unturned?
If so, you will be pleased to know that Acaboom now lets you learn more about your clients and ensure that everything about them is legitimate with a client digital footprint analysis.
Why check the digital footprint of prospective clients?
Our phones and digital activities can reveal publicly available information on who we are. According to recent reports, there are 4.48 billion social media users in the world, each having signed up on an average of 6.6 platforms. That is just under 60% of the total population. It’s used by many businesses, such as banks, who use social data to calculate the creditworthiness of someone applying for a loan.
By checking social media activity, registered profiles, and even the reputation of specific social media networks, lenders can get a better idea of the kind of borrower they are. You can use this same information before you meet a client to get a picture of who they are.
How the client digital footprint works
We use multiple online sources to gather an overview of their online activity that’s tied to both their email address and mobile phone, so you can learn more about who you are meeting. The moment they book an appointment you can undertake an analysis, revealing links to any registered, publicly available channels including:
- Pure social media platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram
- Messenger applications: Skype, Messenger, Whatsapp, Snapchat
- Online marketplaces: eBay, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft
- Travel-related platforms: TripAdvisor, Airbnb, Foursquare, Booking.com
- Music platforms: last.fm, Pandora, Spotify
- Specialized platforms: GitHub, Gravatar
- And more.
It’s important to note it makes use of information the owner of an email address or phone number has chosen to make public about themselves.
This technology helps users to cross-reference social data with other information they may have, for additional peace of mind, and that’s why we’ve introduced it at Acaboom.
It’s simple, fast and research is included with your Acaboom subscription.
