Over the past year, enterprising financial advisors have significantly grown their practices using digital event marketing tools and platforms.
After in-person events and visits to brick and mortar businesses were no longer an option, older Americans began relying on online communications to connect with product and service providers. This opened the door for advisors to employ digital resources to generate leads and acquire new clients.
Consumers and advisors on the Internet
For most LeadingResponse financial services clients, their primary event marketing audience is people age 55 and up. The J.D. Power U.S. Financial Advisor Satisfaction Study discovered that’s also the demographic of today’s advisors. And of those, 20% of advisors currently working are 65 and older.
Born between 1946 and 1964, the youngest members of this rapidly expanding demographic are currently 56, while the oldest are 74. 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.
Note: Since the above information pre-dates COVID-19, even more older Americans are using online communications. Experts are confident they will continue to do so after the pandemic ends.
