Most financial advisors receive advice for marketing their business that’s mediocre at best and can cripple your most cherished relationships at worst.
But in the digital age, where LinkedIn can land you 50,000 impressions a week for your exact audience, this is foolish advice. Not only will you sabotage your success, but you’ll start to hate your job too.
Well, this episode is the antidote to that foolish advice. Steve MacLellan, a financial advisor who has finally achieved happiness in his marketing approach and success, joins me to reveal which marketing strategies are working for him.
And you know what? They’ll work for you too.
