Why This Advisor Says FMG Suite is a Must for Growing Your Business

Marketing Successes, Social Media 0 Comments

mikeMichael Kreft is a ProEquities financial advisor and the founder of Palmetto Coast Wealth Management. Here, he discusses his favorite FMG Suite tool and why he recommends FMG Suite to other advisors.

How did you first learn about FMG Suite and how did you decide to choose FMG Suite for your website and digital marketing?

I learned about FMG Suite from a ProEquities conference I attended. The price was comparable to other providers, but FMG Suite offered a social media tool, which was very important to me at the time, so I chose to go with you guys.

How have the FMG Suite tools helped with your marketing efforts?

With as busy as I get taking care of clients and running my business, I find it challenging to make time to create and then post compliance-approved content to my social media pages consistently. FMG Suite makes this process simple with their social media tool by taking that important marketing piece off my hands, as I don’t have the time or discipline to create and post my own content on a consistent basis.

Have you experienced any success using our tools?

An acquaintance I ran into periodically “liked” my Facebook page. One day, he saw a post about 401(k) plans and asked me if I do those. Little did I know, he was the CEO of his company and they hired me to handle their retirement plan. I’ve also had numerous prospective clients tell me they researched me online and looked at my website prior to our first meeting. My favorite is when a client or prospective client mentions to me that something posted on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or in the e-newsletter was helpful to them. It shows that they are engaging with my marketing and I’m staying top of mind.

What do you love most about your FMG website?

For one, the user-friendly website themes and interface made it easy for me to design my first web site and make it look really professional. Additionally, I appreciate the regular updates and improvements FMG Suite rolls out. I LOVE that my website and marketing tools are not static. FMG Suite is always improving their services!

Would you recommend FMG Suite to other financial advisors?

In today’s world, any advisor wishing to grow his or her business must invest in technology. People increasingly rely on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and search engines to research your firm and to feel connected to your firm. I’ve had prospective clients, both young and old, tell me they researched my firm online before coming in for the very first meeting. I’ve had clients and prospects mention to me in passing that they saw something I posted and they found it useful. Failing to invest in technology will be an inevitable deathblow to any serious financial advisory practice. I recommend FMG Suite to any advisor who wants a clean, fresh, professional website, or who wants to stay up-to-date with social media marketing but doesn’t have the time or expertise to do it on their own. FMG Suite is a great way to create a memorable first impression (e.g. with a website), and stay connected and relevant to your client through social media and periodic email newsletters.

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..."

"...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..."

"...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..."
