The Power Of Repetition

How many times have you stopped using an idea that worked well? Don’t feel bad, most advisors do it all the time. The power of repetition can get boring. However, we eventually come back to what works.

Marketing is sometimes a difficult measure because results can come down the road after months or years of trying. How long did it take for you to land your largest client. The persistent advisor knows that the best clients did not make decisions quickly, rather they need enough comfort to make a decision.

What is enough comfort? Great question, why don’t you ask your top clients what it was that eventually made them decide to join you and you will have incredible insight towards your marketing strategies. This will tell you what works and what doesn’t.

As an advisor I cannot tell you what works for your biggest clients, rather do your market research and gather you result. Maybe it was from a couple of seminars. Could it be that it was from more than one client referring your name to them, or finally it was that they found you had the systematic planning and teamwork approach that they were looking for. You won’t know until you ask.

Now if you were to have 10 or 12 more clients like your top ones, would you not be having your best year in the business?
