Why an Integrated Marketing Effort is So Important
Firms that are most effective in reaching the independent financial advisors and wealth management community make a concerted effort with marketing to differentiate their firm and tell their story.
Feature articles, white papers, newsletters, blog, infographics, webinars, and podcast,—we’ll create integrated program that contextualizes your firm’s story. We’ll also work closely with your media relations and sales team that positions you firm and associates as thought-leaders to connect with all the importance audiences, from prospective and existing clients, to centers of influence, to media.
How We Work
Budget, expertise, time, staffing should not prevent you from focusing on marketing your firm. Many smaller firms struggle with the costs or need to hire a full-time staff member. In addition, to find the right person with specific RIA industry experience can be difficult.
That’s where we come in, our goal is to help you to discover the right strategy and solutions that are best suited for you needs and deliver them on schedule, on budget, every time. Different than a salaried position, we’ll develop a custom plan and monthly retainer that is scalable to respond to busier times of year or particular project you have deadlines you have to meet.
We also have virtual team of consultants to assist with:
- Web Development
- Print and marketing material production
- Copywriting and press releases
- Targeted Media Outreach
Our process is the foundation for everthing that we do:
Plan – We start by developing a roadmap plan. Whether it’s a complete marketing strategy or a specific project, the roadmap plans every detail from concept to completion; goals, messaging, budget, and schedule.
Implement – We manage every aspect of the marketing initiative along the way.
Adjust – Even the best plans have room for improvement. That’s why we are always looking for ways to move adjustments to move the needle forward.
Measure – From the start we will set short and long term goals and will measure the effectiveness of everything that we do.
