5 Things We’re Grateful For This Year

Thanksgiving still life background with pumpkins, gourds and messageDear reader,

What another whirlwind year it’s been! It seems as though 2016 just started but we’re already less than six weeks from 2017. 2016 will forever have a special place in our hearts because a lot of incredible things happened. We wanted to take a moment to share just five things we’re grateful for this year:

1. Our continuously expanding team nationwide

We are constantly humbled by the amount of growth we do in so short of time. We have a team of incredible developers in Duluth, Minnesota, amazing Customer Service and Sales members in Lindon, Utah, remote friends in Illinois and Florida, and the bulk of our company in San Diego, California. We work together and all play such important roles in the creation of our marketing tools.

2. Our expansion into the insurance realm

In the beginning of the year, we made a big push to create more insurance content so we can provide our marketing tools to independent insurance agents and financial advisors who focus on insurance. We love working with financial advisors and insurance agents and everything we do is aimed at making their lives simpler.

3. Our new marketing tools

This may have been our biggest year yet in terms of improvement and additions. We refined our email and social media tools to create a combined Campaigns tool, which includes six different campaigns. In 2017, we’ll be adding to our library so our subscribers never run out of campaigns to send. Additionally, we integrated with Redtail to simplify your lead generation and email organization and tasks. We also launched a new website design service, Concierge, so financial professionals can launch a beautiful, personalized website in just four weeks and four phone calls. And lastly, we launched Local Listings to help our subscribers improve their search engine rankings and make it easier for prospects to find them online.

4. Our team’s personal celebrations and successes

Because we’re such a close knit team, we love supporting each other’s personal endeavors and family celebrations. This year, several of our team members welcomed new babies into this world, got married, ran marathons, accomplished New Year’s resolutions, volunteered in their community, gave back to those in need, created art, picked up new hobbies, and mastered new skills.

5. You

Words can’t begin to express how grateful we are for you – our subscribers and blog readers. If you’re a subscriber, thank you for trusting us with your marketing. We hope we’ve been able to save you time and money on your marketing so you can focus more on your clients and passions in life.

Distill Your Niche

"...while they can’t turn back the clock and address these issues beforehand - such as increasing their spouse’s life insurance or saving more - there are ways to take control and feel more confident in their future.
When working with widows, there are a few first steps I recommend taking:

1. Get Organized
Whether or not you handled all of your family’s finances, some, or none, the first step is to organize your financial documents. Before you can determine how to budget and what steps to take, you have to first understand where you stand financially. If you are having trouble translating your investment account statements, a financial advisor can help you understand what your documents mean. You’ll want to copy and safeguard your important documents and review life insurance policies with a trusted advisor.

2. Budget for a Single Income
More than half of widows have difficulty adjusting to a single income. This may because they haven’t reevaluated their bills and expenses and adjusted..."

Consistent Messaging

"...Once we understand your family’s current circumstances, goals, and unique needs, we develop strategies to help preserve and potentially grow your wealth and take over the time-consuming tasks associated with managing your complex financial affairs. Working with a family office can benefit families in a number of ways, including:

  • Preserving wealth through proactive management and appropriate strategies
  • Mitigating risk by diversifying investments
  • Assisting with the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next through strategic asset allocation and estate planning..."

Unique Articles in Your Voice

"...More than likely, you have a clear understanding of your relationship with your doctor or your dentist. You pay a fee and, in return, you receive a service, including advice and recommendations based on your individual situation. It would make sense then for your relationship with your financial advisor to be the same; but for many, that’s not the case.

At Financial Guideposts, we’ve noticed a trend: that the general public does not understand the relationship they have with their financial advisor. We want to change that. We believe there are two critical aspects you should understand when working with a financial advisor: how he or she gets paid and what services he or she provides..."
