Your online presence should be driving your advisory firm’s growth. Is it working? How do you know?

Most financial advisors know the importance of having a good website, being seen on social media and in credible third-party media outlets, and coming up strong in search engine page rankings, but few are happy with the amount of leads they are getting from their efforts – and they don’t know how they can improve.

In this webinar, our presenters will explain how to improve your online presence, get your website in shape and drive more leads into your marketing funnel.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the three pillars of search engine optimization
• Discover the SEO mistakes that you’re making and how you can fix them
• Learn how to benchmark your site against competitors and tracking key performance indicators
• Find out how to benefit from Google’s recent changes to outrank more established competitors
• Be more discoverable and credible thanks to the PESO Model, the 4-Cs and the AIDA formula
