Multiple studies show that the most effective financial professionals “touch” their clients 12 to 18 times per year. This practice keeps the advisor in the forefront of clients’ minds so they are more likely to mention the advisor when a referral opportunity arrives. It also helps improve client satisfaction and increase client awareness of other services advisors offer, resulting in increased business. But who has time to meet with or call each client more than once a month?

This is where email marketing comes into play. An email newsletter touches and educates clients, and is easily forwardable to referrals. If you aren’t sending a monthly newsletter to all of your clients, partners, and prospects, it’s time to get started.
