Tools that help potential clients understand their financial scenario in a real and interactive way have been some of the best performers.
This includes interactive calculators for retirement planning, retirement readiness, insurance product quotes, etc., tools like this not only provide instant gratification to the prospect, but also encourage further engagement.
Webinars continue to be an extremely powerful tool to reach a wide audience while positioning our clients as thought leaders in the RIA space.
Webinars provide a great platform to drive large numbers of prospects to engage with content covering topics from investment strategies, market trends, tax strategies, etc.
Even in a digital age, the value of face-to-face interaction remains unmatched. Hosting informal seminars, wine-tasting events, and other events that allow for personal engagement and trust-building are especially vital.
Our client has chosen smaller more intimate events with much higher engagement, lower cost, and higher frequency.
For RIAs even the most successful marketing campaigns are not a silver bullet. The key to success with any marketing in the RIA space is consistency.
