Credit Card Builders Passes $88 Million in Funding for Small Business Clients


Spring Hill, Florida (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

Today Credit Card Builders announced that the wave of credit easing in 2014 continues to spur significant growth – helping the Company to surpass $ 88M in funding for their clients.

According to Fortune, business loans rose $ 42 billion in the fourth quarter of 2014, and credit card lending rose $ 35 billion. In contrast, mortgages rose just $ 6 billion.

Credit Card Builders helps small businesses and real estate investors get significant funding (up to $ 250,000 and more) at zero percent interest via creative credit card financing. For businesses and investors who only need financing for a year or two, intelligent credit card borrowing can be more cost effective than even a mortgage.

Ever since the current economic outlook improved and the market eased up, banks have looked for various ways to increase their earnings. Banks and federal associations are more liberal in their approach to risk, and always need to find ways to generate more business. The result is that some avenues of acquiring financing are now easier than ever.

One of the easiest, and if done correctly, least expensive, ways to get financing is via credit cards. While many credit card companies still charge tremendous interest rates, there are thousands of credit card offers at favorable rates for small businesses.

In fact, when the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency released their 19th annual “Survey of Credit Underwriting Practices,” they reported that among all loan products, credit cards had the greatest easing of underwriting standards.

Zero interest loans make sense for banks. For one thing, banks themselves can borrow at historic lows (they borrow at near zero percent from the Federal Reserve), so they have access to lots of capital. Add to this the notion that banks have a lot of ways to make money, and it starts to make sense.

Banks want to have relationships with small businesses and investors. If they already have a relationship, they want to surround that relationship with services to keep them from going to the competition. So, providing clients with great credit card offers costs them very little, and allows them to further develop those relationships.

Although many zero percent interest terms appear to be capped, according to Ari Page, CEO of Credit Card Builders, if you know what you’re doing, that’s not the case.

“Banks hope you’re not savvy enough to realize that if you know who to talk to and what to say, you can keep rolling over zero interest introductory offers into the foreseeable future,” he said.

According to Mr. Page, the following are some actions small businesses and investors can take to capitalize on low- and zero-interest credit cards.

1. If you don’t have a business entity, get one. It’s easy to acquire and anyone can do it. You want to be smart about it, as some entities are far more lendable than others. For example, having Marketing/Advertising or Business Management in your business name, indicates you are (on average) a better risk than someone with Real Estate in their title. There are also important nuances in terms of what type of entity you set up.

2. Know how to elucidate what your business does. If you’re stuttering, stammering or seem unsure of your business, don’t expect the bank to lend to you.

3. If you have personal credit issues, get them cleaned up. There are many agencies, such as Kaydem Credit Help, that can assist you.

4. Search the web for credit card offers for businesses.

5. Do your homework to sort through various offers, identifying any hidden fees.

6. Explore existing relationships and see what they’re willing to do. I once went to my bank to open a checking account and was offered a $ 17,000 credit card for being a loyal customer.

7. Consider requesting line increases or exploring promotional rates for those cards that you already have. Many banks won’t hesitate to reward good customers with increased credit lines.

Last June, Credit Card Builders announced a new funding program to make their business credit services more accessible to a wider array of qualified small businesses. Their Performance-Based Funding program allows qualified clients to defer payment until credit is received. With this option, there are no up-front fees, and borrowers can instead, opt to pay a percentage of the credit received.

Asked about his company’s success, Mr. Page said, “If you need significant dollars – $ 50-100K and beyond, you really need to know what you’re doing. Having created strategies and built relationships with leading lending institutions for eight years, we know the opportunities and the potholes along the road.

“Inexperienced borrowers do not realize how to pursue large amounts of credit without shooting themselves in the foot,” he added. “They can spend a lot of time trying to do this on their own and wind up negatively affecting their personal credit, applying for smaller cards that will lock them out of getting better deals, using strategies that will flag them as too risky, or incurring sneaky annual fees (we’ve seen them as large as $ 500) and/or high balance transfer rates. Another negative outcome is to be approved for a business card and only realize after the fact that the card will be reporting to your personal credit.

“Using a company like Credit Card Builders, where we hold your hand every step of the way, virtually guarantees that you’ll get the most possible credit for your business. Savvy executives know when to use their special skills for maximum gain, and when to outsource to the experts. These are the individuals who will be successful acquiring credit in our programs.

“As the economy improves and lending continues to increase, it’s even more imperative for business owners to know how to discern their options. We’re here to help so small business owners can do what they’re best at – making money.”

About Credit Card Builders: Founded in 2007, Credit Card Builders was created as an alternative to high interest lending. Through its relationships with some of the nation’s largest credit lenders, Credit Card Builders helps small businesses and real estate investors get up to $ 250,000 in funding with little or no interest.

New Small Business Lending Sources For Commercial Loans

It has become a routine occurrence for small business owners to be told by their current commercial lender that it will be necessary to seek another source for commercial loans and working capital. Although banks and other business lenders have made a pointed effort to portray themselves as lending normally, very few business owners are likely to agree that there is anything normal about obtaining financing from current business finance programs.

Because current commercial lending conditions have become so difficult, I published several earlier articles which addressed some of the problems that commercial borrowers are experiencing when they attempt to obtain working capital financing and commercial loans. For example, one of these commercial finance reports described the unfortunate possibility of firing your banker as one of several guerrilla financing techniques that might be required for a small business to survive in the face of extreme business banking conditions.

Certainly I would not advocate the guerrilla financing tactic of firing your bank and your banker if there were not suitable alternative sources for small business loans. At the same time, it would not be realistic to suggest that there are one or two obvious business lending sources that will solve the working capital needs for all businesses in need of help.

In reality the search for new commercial lending sources must start with an admission from a small business owner that they do in fact need to find a new source for commercial loans. Identifying the most likely alternatives can be accomplished in several ways but one of the most effective approaches will include detailed discussions with commercial loans experts that are experienced in nationwide business financing similar to what the business owner currently needs.

The best commercial finance solutions will depend on the business location, type of financing, kind of business, operating history and size of loan desired. Some of the most realistic sources for small business loans are operating regionally rather than nationally. A key point for business owners to remember is that there really are a number of viable and effective commercial lenders that are currently active in making commercial loans to businesses that are in desperate need of commercial financing.

In addition to the advice contained in this article, small business owners should not hesitate to review business finance resources such as The Working Capital Guide, a free online publication which focuses on working capital management strategies. Additionally commercial borrowers should quickly locate a commercial loans expert that is capable of providing appropriate help for their specific business financing situation.
