You Won’t Believe Our Newest Product Offering

General Marketing 0 Comments

Yes, we’ve established ourselves as a go-to marketing resource for service professionals. Yes, we’ve released great products like our Exclusive websites, email campaigns, and automated social media. Yes, we’re pretty awesome.

But we’ve outdone ourselves this time. Introducing FMG Fax:

If you think our new product is too good to believe, you’d be right. April Fools! We always like to have fun here at FMG Suite, which is why we curated some of the best April Fools jokes that companies have played in the last few years. Check out some of our favorites:

Plenta and Micra sizes at Starbucks

The world’s favorite coffee chain pranked their visitors in 2010 by introducing two new sizes, the Plenta and the Micra. Plenta was a whopping 128 ounces while Micra was a minuscule 2 ounces. They also explained that the cups can serve multiple purposes, like a rain hat for the Plenta and a kitten dish for the Micra.

Purchasing the Liberty Bell

In 1996, Taco Bell announced that it was purchasing the Liberty Bell. In addition, the fast food chain was changing the name of the historic landmark to the Taco Liberty Bell. They hoped the purchase would help the national debt.

Amazon’s Redesign

Last year, internet Retailer Amazon redesigned their website to look like it did in 1999.

Not exactly the redesign we recommend for our clients, but a great joke for the holiday.

Google Reverse

In 2015, Google launched its new site, com.google. Users were greeted with a reverse image of Google’s logo and all their search results were reversed.

Smell-o-Vision

In 1965, the BBC announced their newest technology, Smell-o-Vision, with which viewers could experience the smells of the show they were watching right in their own living rooms. The prank went so far that individuals actually called into the station to confirm that they were able to smell coffee beans and onions through their television set.

Whether you’re filing your coworker’s cube with bubble wrap, disguising mayo as frosting, or covering the break room in Post-It notes, April Fool’s Day is a great way to embrace Spring with a smile. And who knows, maybe FMG Fax will be the next product on the horizon!

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..."
