Major Life Decisions
When a client selects your firm to manage their financial assets, that’s a major life decision. A financial firm’s marketing assets help build this trust with a prospective client. Whether it’s attracting new clients, recruiting new financial advisors or uncovering a new investment opportunity, effective B2C and B2B marketing will help your firm discover new opportunities. Strong marketing assets then help your firm nurture leads to a committed, long-term relationship.
Perception Is Reality
You could be the greatest financial guru around, but if your firm doesn’t look the part, customers develop distrust. Unfortunately, many small financial firms discount the importance of branding services. Credible B2C and B2B marketing assets (logo, website design, print collateral) are just as important as a referral network, classy attire, a professional office and capable staff. For instance, many financial firms find little value in a credible website design, even though most prospects view your firm’s website before they ever meet you in person. An outdated website could hurt your financial firm. Your brand assets should strengthen your sales efforts, not detract from them.
You Can’t Be Everywhere
Most financial advisors leverage a network of business advisors for referrals. While this strategy helps garner some high quality client leads, it requires you to be constantly “meeting and greeting.” What about leads outside of your immediate network? A cohesive inbound marketing strategy utilizing content marketing tactics helps your firm increase brand awareness in the marketplace and, over time, garner ideal client leads.
