This Firm Increased Their Search Traffic with Their FMG Website

Marketing Successes, Success Stories, Website 0 Comments

PaulAdamsPaul Adams’ Seattle-based firm, Sound Financial Group, recently partnered with FMG Suite to rebuild their website and improve their marketing tools. They wanted a site that was modern, yet still under their control and easy to update. Partnering with FMG Suite allowed them to get a high-end website design and also integrate directly with Guardian compliance.

“I love being able to add content to our site at my discretion, and then send it straight to compliance without having to submit a form separately. It is such a huge time saver!” said Lea Wold, the firm’s marketing manager. “We are really happy with the site and have gotten great feedback from our clients. The customer service team at FMG Suite has been very helpful as well.”

Using the FMG Suite tie into Google Analytics provides real-time reporting on the traffic to their website, including how many visitors come to the site, which pages they visit, and how they found the site. “Our Google Analytics shows a 56% increase in organic search traffic since March 2015 when we launched our site, which is incredible,” said Wold.

Organic search traffic is the measure of visitors who got to the website by searching via Google or Bing using keywords. Google Analytics shows that these visitors are visiting the Sound Financial Group’s “Home” page, then the “Team” page and the “About” page. “It’s great to see new site visitors using it as a way to get to know more about our team and the services we offer,” Wold said.

Sound Financial Group also uses their website for recruiting, and features a form on their site where potential candidates can apply to join their team. “We have been getting a trickle of potential candidates coming in each week, which is great for our recruiting process,” said Wold.

Guardian has partnered with FMG Suite to provide best in industry websites and digital marketing to their agents and agencies with automatic compliance integration. They have negotiated discounted pricing for Guardian agents and agencies, beginning at $45 per month for a website. To get started with FMG Suite, contact Heather Ramos, Manager, Agency Marketing and Field Communications, at (212) 598-8130 or FMG Suite directly by email or by phone at (888) 364-1260.

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..."

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..."
