Financial advisers and insurance agents are increasingly turning to the internet to boost their business.
Specifically, they are jumping on the online seminar marketing bandwagon.
There are a couple of likely reasons for this:
Just about everyone their age is now online.
It’s also a low-cost way to generate leads and acquire clients.
Booming on the web
According to the J.D. Power U.S. Financial Advisor Satisfaction Study released in July, the average adviser is 55 years old, and about 20% of them are 65 and up.
These professionals have discovered online seminar marketing is an effective means of cultivating prospects – many of whom are, like themselves, members of the Baby Boomer generation.
(Born between 1946 and 1964, the youngest members of this rapidly expanding demographic are currently 55, while the oldest are 73.)
According to an article in Forbes citing research by Google, Baby Boomers today spend more time on the internet than they do watching television. And over 80% of them have at least one social media account.
Meanwhile, Statista, a provider of market and consumer data, determined as of June 2019, Boomers had an average of 4.6 social media accounts, primarily Facebook and LinkedIn.
So much for the idea that older Americans don’t use social media!
Now you know why growing numbers of advisers and agents are incorporating digital technologies into their business development efforts.
If you are considering a digital campaign for the first time, however, you may wonder what makes one service provider different from another.
It’s the data.
For example, as the original seminar marketing company, LeadingResponse has gathered millions of responder records.
Since 1995, we’ve marketed exclusively to people 55 and up. No one else in the industry has such an extensive database.
We use it to drive responses through Facebook, Instagram and other online platforms and networks.
In fact, we have a designated Facebook representative and direct access to unique targeting options to power your campaigns.
