Attract more clients with a blog!
Blogging has become a “must” for many independent and fee-only financial advisors. It’s a great way to build your business by connecting with current and potential clients as well as referral sources. Blogging attracts prospects to your website, media attention, and speaking engagements. It also cements your reputation as a leader in your field.
Savvy investment managers, wealth managers, and other financial professionals know blogs are an excellent way to communicate topical information before it gets stale. This deepens your relationships with current clients. But many advisors struggle to create a steady flow of compelling blog posts. This isn’t surprising. After all, your professional training focused on helping clients manage their investments or finances. You may have never taken a writing class or written for publication.
Don’t worry! Help has arrived. This book will help you conquer the challenge of producing high quality blog posts by following a step-by-step process, including how to:
- Generate and refine ideas for blog posts that will engage your readers
- Organize your thoughts before you write so you can write more quickly and effectively
- Edit your writing so it’s reader-friendly and appealing
- Spread the word about your blog and attract more visitors
Susan’s words have helped me hone my message and become clearer in my explanations. Through my dedication to blogging, my business has grown as a result. I owe much of my success in business to Susan’s teaching and guidance.
I wish I had read Susan’s Financial Blogging before I produced 300 weekly posts. There was a lot of practical advice in a slim 137 page guide to producing effective blogs. The blog preparation work sheets should be of particular value to an author who wishes to get smart people to do smart things with their money. Compliance concerns become a hurdle, not a wall, between prospect and the provider of financial services. My posts will be better for having read the book.
