Hi, Dan Sheehan from Social Merlin back again for another Marketing Minute. Today’s topic: The 5 Reasons Why Blogging Is Important for Financial Advisors.
Let’s face it; not every financial advisor is going to be enthusiastic about blogging, neither was I. Some will enjoy setting time aside to create relevant content, while others would rather mow the lawn than sit and write a blog article. Whether you’re a procrastinator or an enthusiast, today’s topic will convince you to become a regular blogging virtuoso!
A big challenge for financial advisors is differentiation. What sets you apart from the competition? Blogging allows you to develop a differentiated brand around your practice. Here are five important blogging benefits for financial advisors.
1. Your blog serves as an introduction to potential clients. The content quality, relevance, and the passion you convey creates a positive first impression.
2. It establishes you as a thought leader and authority. Your content educates people, and information sharing will develop trust. It reflects that you care about things that matter to them.
3. By promoting your blog content on social media, your visibility increases, driving more traffic to your website. This draws prospects into your funnel for lead generation.
4. Blogging is an excellent way of sharing your values and personality. Your uniqueness is what differentiates you, and people will either resonate with you or they won’t. You want to generate qualified leads and work with like-minded people.
5. Content research aids continuous learning. Blogging helps you stay up to date with products and services relevant to your target market. Clients value that you help them make informed decisions by staying abreast with the latest developments.
By following a simple systematic process, you can manage blogging like any other activity. Brainstorm hot topics that would interest your niche market. Ask your prospects and clients what their questions and concerns are. This simple exercise of getting into their heads will not only highlight the topics you should write about, but it will help you to respond to their needs.
The objective of blogging is to connect with your target market. By delivering relatable, quality content that engages people, you establish a positive connection. It is well worth your while to incorporate blogging into your overall marketing strategy.
