The Power of Social Media as a Marketing Tool for Service Professionals

Social Media 0 Comments


Social media is one of the biggest influencers on the Internet today. It is the modern way to connect with friends, family, and business associates. As information can be shared and absorbed in seconds, social media is a powerful tool for staying in touch with your clients and prospects at all times. The major social media players are Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

One of the main issues service professionals face is that they don’t have to time to continuously cultivate and share informational content on their social media sites. That’s where FMG Suite comes in. We provide automated social media posts and curate engaging content to inform your clients of the latest trends in finance and insurance, or information about your firm.

Social media provides service professionals a great opportunity to connect with and engage clients and prospects. By sharing content on a consistent basis, you have the opportunity to maintain a continuous conversation and establish your expertise and knowledge.

Here are just 9 statistics that show just how much influence social media wields:

    1. 53% of Americans who follow brands on social media are more loyal to those brands. (Entrepreneur)


    1. 59% of online adults over the age of 65 use Facebook. (Lyft Marketing)


    1. 90% of marketers indicate that their social media efforts have generated more exposure for their businesses. (INC)


    1. About 43% of advisors report a return on investment from their social media use. (Investment News)


    1. 74% of marketers who spend 40-plus hours on social media earn new business through their efforts. (Salesforce)


    1. 45% of mass affluent investors consider Facebook a source for investment and financial needs, while 42% would go first to LinkedIn. (Millionaire Corner)


    1. More than 60% of those who prospected on LinkedIn successfully gained new clients as a result, with nearly a third of these generating $1 million or more in assets under management. (LinkedIn)


    1. 45% of online US adults who have a Twitter account are interested in interacting with financial services firms via Twitter. (Social Media Governance)


  1. 63% of mass affluent consumers take action after using social media to learn about financial products and services. (ThinkAdvisor)

Social media is a goldmine for service professionals to connect with new prospects, maintain strong relationships with clients, and encourage referrals. The key to generating leads on social media is being consistent. The strongest social media content is a balance of evergreen, educational content and timely, firm-focused content, such as event announcements, firm updates, or current news stories. At FMG Suite, we help you with the first half of your posting, providing you educational and engaging evergreen content that never goes stale. Through our automated platform, you can schedule posts to automatically post up to 7 times a week. We’ll help you cut back on the time you have to spend on social media while still allowing you to reap the rewards.

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..."

Working with a family office can benefit families in a number of ways, including:

  • Preserving wealth through proactive management and appropriate strategies

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..."
