Quality Client Acquisition Round Table for Financial Planners & CFPs

Coming Soon: Our Next Quality Client Acquisition Round Table for Financial Planners & CFPs


For more than 15 years, I have helped experienced Financial Planners and CFPs consistently develop high-quality clients, like I did, without wasting time & money on marketing, prospecting, or lead generation services.

Soon, I will be announcing our next Quality Client Acquisition Roundtable for Financial Advisors, who have 10 years+ of experience. We will not only share and discuss the challenges we’ve encountered in consistently meeting with warm quality prospects and building a large book of predominantly quality clients. The successes we’ve enjoyed will be shared and discussed too.

We will also discuss how many Experienced Financial Advisors have rapidly and consistently increased the growth and the rate of growth of their book of quality clients and their revenue. They routinely access their best clients’ network of quality relationships with a Permission-Based, Quality Client Acquisition Process that starts with a simple, comfortable 5-minute phone call.

I hope you can make it. Let me know if you’re interested.

HARVEST YOUR DORMANT ASSETS

Harvesting your dormant assets is the easy and effective way for Financial Advisors to create and routinely maintain dramatic increases in productivity, revenue, and growth of their book of quality clients. It can be quickly learned and implemented without interrupting their daily routine.

What are Dormant Assets?
They are warm, personally introduced or referred meetings and appointments with the quality relationships of an Advisor’s “Current and Future” best clients… the very clients Advisors dream of replicating.

Dormant Assets are not only low hanging fruit ready for harvesting, they are perennials. They regenerate!

Harvesting begins once you learn how to frame a simple discussion with your best clients.

Your only cost is a little time.

Your comments are welcome.

EXPERIENCED ADVISORS: A MODERN STORY SIMPLIFIES QUALITY CLIENT ACQUISITION

A Modern Story simplifies quality client acquisition and grows a book filled with quality clients. 

We’ve talked with countless Financial Advisors and, for the most part, their traditional stories are basically the same.

These traditional stories focus on how their firm is different, where they went to school, the degrees they’ve earned, their expertise, their charitable work, their family, etc.

If your best clients aren’t regularly warmly referring or personally introducing you to their quality relationships, it’s probably because your traditional story isn’t being talked about.

Traditional stories are not remarkable, so consistent quality client acquisition is difficult, as is growing a large book of quality clients.

A Modern Story “IS” remarkable because it is subtly framed to address the predominant worldview of the market… the well-documented distrust of Advisors and the Financial Industry.  (This worldview is a huge obstacle to accessing the network of your best clients’ quality relationships.)

The reason the framing must be subtle is because any form of hype, puffery, or selling will generally shut the door of opportunity.

When you convey this worldview the right way, not only will your best clients respond to you,  they will also talk about you and personally introduce or refer you to their network of quality relationships…  consistently.

So, to rapidly and consistently increase your quality client acquisition and your book of quality clients, test a Modern Story. It’s easy.

Your comments are welcome and appreciated.

People Don’t Trust You: Ignoring This Worldview Is A Mistake

It’s not specifically you. The problem is that you’re a Financial Advisor and most people have a distrust of the industry. (Darth Vader post) It’s an established “worldview”, a belief or bias, and it’s not something you can change, no matter how many facts and figures you present to clients and prospects. If your message is framed in a way that conflicts with their worldview, you’re invisible.” But speaking respectfully to someone’s worldview is the price of entry to get their attention and is the most incredible growth multiplier.

It’s Easy To Create Productive Centers of Influence

Transforming your best clients into productive centers of influence has always been the obvious path to quickly, efficiently, and sustainably grow your business… but has it ever been a reality? It’s easy.

A simple “5 minute call,” comfortable for you and your best clients, will give you permission to discuss warm, personally endorsed introductions to their quality friends and colleagues… on a follow up call with them several days later.

These high quality, personal introductions are not referrals.  

At their core, they are an endorsement where your client explicitly recommends you and your value, authenticity, and character. 

They will eliminate or significantly reduce the cost and time you spend prospecting for quality clients.

You have good relationships with your best clients. They trust you. These relationships will quickly set the stage for reliable, significant growth on an ongoing basis.

REFERRALS OR PERSONAL INTRODUCTIONS? THERE’S A BIG DIFFERENCE

A ‘referral’ is like a lead. It’s a name. It is typically bare, impersonal, and unqualified. Referrals rarely convert to clients – even more rarely, quality clients. Not just because of the lack of relationship with the referred but also because a cold situation feels like selling.

In contrast, a warm personal introduction from a best client is an endorsement wherein your client is explicitly standing behind the value, authenticity and character of the person being introduced… you. It’s an entirely different dynamic. A personal introduction grants you ease and entry. It is based on the established trusting relationship that not only already exists between you and your client but also your client and your client’s friend.

A personal introduction is at its inception a relationship – comfortable and easy – because you are endorsed and trusted.

Referrals don’t even come close to these introductions.
