Why social media is the new ‘word of mouth’ for Financial Advisors

Many Financial Advisors find client retention a pressing issue, which is crucial as retaining exisiting clients costs much less than acquiring new ones. Infact, generating business from new client acquisition can cost anything between 5 to 25 times more than it does from an existing client. But how can social media help? In this post, I look at why social media is the new ‘word of mouth’ for Financial Advisors

Be present

Social media allows you to be present with your customers at all times. It allows you to engage with your client on a regular basis. If used correctly, social media can keep your business in front of your clients at all times.

Deepen your connection with your existing clients

Deepening your connection with your existing clients will encourage them to carry on doing business with you and recommend you to their contacts.
