As the old saying goes, “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” Bottom line, if you want success and growth in the future, the best time to act is now. If you have been lagging behind on your strategic planning for 2021 and beyond, this session will give you new ideas and frameworks so you can make progress now by organizing your business development plans and strategic objectives. Kristin will take the top of the session to provide her “Seven Elements of a Marketing Plan” and her professional philosophies for building a successful financial advisor firm. Marie will layer on by (a) reviewing “The PESO Model” and (b) showing the audience a real marketing plan for a real RIA firm. You’ll leave with fresh ideas and new energy to finish up (or start!) your 2021 marketing plan.

Learning Objectives:
• Review two different frameworks and tools for creating your own marketing plan
• Hear how two different marketing professionals and tenured consultants to financial advisory firms suggest you approach marketing in 2021
