  32. Social and Mobile Web is Still Growing According to a survey presented earlier, 51% of consumers learnt about their new advisers through digital. That’s no surprise. In the United States • 158 million people use Facebook • 122 million use LinkedIn • 75% of Americans use their smartphones to research information Do you know anyone who isn’t on Facebook? Who doesn’t have a smartphone? Bottom line: investors aren’t just visiting social networking sites to passively consume information #FAsocial@jjloic

Digital Marketing Business Objectives Before starting/changing anything, please identify your goals and KPIs • Create awareness (social media & branded traffic) • Generate leads (capture leads on website) • Educate clients (Increase client satisfaction / NPS / # of resources downloaded / returning visitors) • Engage community (# webinar registrants / # referrals) • Etc… #FAsocial@jjloic
  35. How to Attract New Clients & Engage Existing Clients 1. Link your social media profiles to professional websites 2. Generate valuable and if possible actionable content 3. Be authentic 4. Be specific 5. Be convincing, but not forceful 6. Deliver on your promises [optional] send visitors to landing pages #FAsocial@jjloic
  36. Success – What to Track Simple: • Ask prospects how they found you • Use Google Analytics (it’s free) to see where new clients/referral form submissions come from (social vs. web vs. mobile) Advanced: • Conversion Rate • Amplification Rate (AmR) #FAsocial@jjloic

  39. #FAsocial 1. Find your voice and choose your medium: What do you have to say and where do you want to say it? Writer, thinker, talker, speaker, curator? 2. Use your voice: Choose to put yourself out there and embrace your label of choice as a blogger, podcaster, speaker, curator or other. 3. Upgrade your company website: Most advisers appear to be using the same three website templates. Make yours unique and exceptional. 4. Create your personal website: Get www.[YourName].com and use it to express your message personally. Connect it to your company website. 5. Get on LinkedIn: It’s the new and improved business card and the intersection of professional and social. Connect, learn, share & repeat. 6. Choose one other social platform to concentrate on: I quit Facebook and learned to optimize Twitter. 7. Set a regular content creation schedule and keep it: Use your voice to create something weekly or monthly, centralized on your website. Share on social media. @TimMaurer 7 Steps of Effective Social Media Engagement

Notes de l'éditeur

  1. Notes: Consumers and investors alike are coming to rely less on traditional media and more on the constantly updated knowledge base of the social web. Interesting to note that according to a report published by Buzzstream and Fractl, Baby Boomers spend more time consuming online content than the Generation X and Millennial generations.
  2. Notes: They want to be engaged: (people are drawn to authenticity) According to Brandwatch, seeking better customer service is the number one reason people direct tweets at financial institutions. That’s great news because social media (and digital in general) is the most cost effective way to conduct customer service.
  3. Notes: Professional website: responsive, easy to navigate, accessible, and optimized for your goals. This is what we do at Advisor Websites Valuable content: No matter which type of content you create, every decision you make about it should be to maximize the value for the reader. It’s important that you remember that value is always defined by your audience. If you’re not seeing any traction with your content, there’s a disconnect. Traffic growth, shares, positive comments, emails, etc. are all signs that you are delivering value to your readers. Actionable content: Your audience comes away from the content knowing how to implement something you covered. At Advisor Websites, we write 3 articles per week, and publish 1 whitepaper every month, each packing huge educational content with step-by-step, instructions and how to’s Be authentic: Neil Patel recommends to create your content and then record yourself reading it out loud. Be specific: Any social media strategy or digital marketing plan always starts with the audience. The whole point of social media marketing is to get users from a social network onto your site or to buy something (or both). Be convincing: Being persuasive not only adds value to your content but also serves as an important part of effective content marketing. If you’re not persuasive, how are you going to get readers to come back to you over and over again and trust you? To make your content convincing, you need: a clear stance on a topic research that backs it up or experts who back it up Deliver on your promises: Trust. It’s why people will continue to return to you instead of any other blogger in your niche. It’s also why when you sell a product, your audience will know that it’s a legitimate offer that will add even more value to their lives. Just like in real life, you have to earn trust. You need to deliver great content over and over again.
  4. Amplification Rate (AmR) is the ratio of shares (or retweets or repins etc.) per post to overall Followers (or Page Likes). Is what you are saying so incredible and of value that I'll stamp my brand on it and forward it to everyone I know?
