Financial Marketing Firm

Introduction

This financial marketing company has marketing programs for financial advisors to solve their biggest problems – how to acquire new quality clients, sell financial products, and build their practices. As a result of the Do-Not-Call Legislation (created by the FCC and FTC), cold-calling is no longer a viable way to build a financial planning practice. Other types of marketing programs created for and sold to financial advisors such as drip-mail marketing, lunch and dinner seminars, or websites have not been effective in generating new clients.

The company business model is a combination of the software business model “build it once and sell it over and over” and the franchise business model. The owners are proud of the success of the Company. They have created a lean operation generating almost ten million dollars of revenue ($9,585,500 in 2014) with two owners and five employees. The foundation is built for the future for a buyer with a vision to take this Company to the next level.

Competitive Advantages

This company has many competitive advantages that have contributed to its success. These advantages have created customer benefits that no other competitor has been able to achieve. The company’s marketing programs produce dramatic results for its customers, creating repeat business and word-of-mouth referrals from its successful, loyal clients.
