Kelly is a NAPFA-Registered Advisor (National Association of Personal Financial Advisors) as well as a member of the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners (ACP), and during our discussion shared with our listeners how she has used the ACP model and methodology to grow her advisory practice.

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. The lesson: have a good website and LinkedIn profile, and then add other digital assets over time (for example: a YouTube channel, Facebook page, Google+ profile and/or Twitter stream). After reading this blog entry, be sure to use the Diagnostic Tool (newly updated for 2018) to see if there are gaps in your online presence.
