It’s not uncommon for us to receive amazing feedback from our clients, many of whom share incredible success stories. From building an influential online presence to gaining new clients to landing million dollar accounts, financial advisors using our marketing automation platform see results from day one.

William Bryan, a financial advisor based in Pomona, California and was excited to tell us about his FMG successes, including scoring $1.7 million of assets under management as a result of our Social Foundation tool.

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

I originally heard of FMG Suite through my old broker-dealer, but it wasn’t until I transferred over to a new OSJ that I really started considering the importance of updating my website. They had a web platform, but it didn’t have nearly the functionality of FMG Suite and I was especially drawn to your dashboard’s ease-of-use and the automated email and social tools. These aspects, as well as the timely and on-point content, are why I decided to go with your company.

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

I always knew the importance of branding, but as an independent advisor with only a home office, it was hard to compete with some of the bigger firms. With FMG’s help, I am now able to better brand myself and my business and keep up with the big dogs of the industry.

Thinking ahead, I can see myself using FMG to further that brand as I dive into more advanced customization options on my website. I’m excited to take control of my marketing.

Do you have a favorite FMG tool? If so, which one and why?

It’s funny, when I originally signed up all I wanted was to get a website up and running and I wasn’t too concerned with other marketing tools. But once I realized how much content was available through FMG, I went further and purchased additional tools, namely the social and email campaigns tool. I soon had a turn-key advisory business that utilized current content and social media platforms.

Have you experienced any specific successes using our tools? Or received any positive feedback from clients or prospects?

Within 2 months of setting up my website and social tool through FMG, I got some leads from Facebook that led to $1.7 million under management. I have also started to redefine my business because as much as I value my current clients, I know it is crucial that I start targeting a younger market to keep my business alive and manage wealth transfers when the time comes. Younger clients are all over social media, so I hope this will lead to even more motivation for these clients to reach out.

What do you like most about your FMG website?

Honestly, it looks like I spent a lot more time and energy on it than I did but in reality, your team did most of the work. It has already helped me further my brand and the process of building and making changes to my website was even easier than I imagined. I am also surprised at the levels of customization I can do and I look forward to taking the time to get to know the FMG system better.

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..."
