2020 was certainly a tough year, for so many people. No one was immune. Everyone had concerns. But here at Impact Communications, the firm I founded 28 years ago, we are grateful for the lessons learned, the problems solved, and the families we fed. We are tighter as a team, stronger as individuals, and more grounded than ever before. At Impact Communications, one of our hallmark phrases is "dedicated, discerning, driven." That certainly was the case for Team Impact, only doubly so in 2020 right up til now, May 2021.

Marie Swift of Impact Communications On: Building a Strong Online Presence as an Independent Financial Advisor
Many people – including journalists and prospective clients – find new sources and service professionals by stumbling upon them, not searching for a business or person by name. Time and time again we hear stories of advisors who can directly attribute new client activity and business growth to their online efforts – and some have even received surprise television appearance invitations and media requests from journalists seeking qualified experts to help with their stories.
