Financial planning lead generation can be tough if not done properly by the right people. This is a glaring you cannot deny. But, no matter how difficult marketing your solutions, and getting interested prospects, you just cannot drop it easily and find other ways to boost your sales. You know well that generating leads and setting appointments are essential requisites to increased sales performance. Instead of brooding about the challenges that make it daunting, what needs to be done is to strengthen your campaign. But then again, you will go back to the basic question, how?
Before you think of specific solutions, concentrate first on what you should not miss in generating financial planning leads. Here are the essential requisites that should not be absent.
Skilled workforce. Whether you are using online or offline tools, your primary, and at the same time the best, asset is the manpower. Their skills will dictate how brilliant your plans will be. Their passion and attitude will determine how effective the implementation can be. If you don’t have the right people, you can’t expect to obtain qualified financial adviser leads, e.g. retirement planning leads or investment leads. Even if your marketing people are geniuses, if they do not how to attract targeted prospects, you can’t reach targets.
Technology. Even if you are simply using direct mail or SEO, technology plays a vital role. The more upgraded your applications are, the better your processes will be. But of course, anticipate large expenses.
Time. No one can dedicate part-time dedication in marketing and expect a rise in income. Always remember that lead generation and appointment setting is not a part-time job. You should devote your people’s time in searching for potential clients, qualifying interested prospects, making follow-ups, nurturing leads and setting business appointments.
Money. Your excellent plans will be put to nothing without financial resources. Estimate if you can run an in-house program so you can resort to low-cost solutions, like outsourcing, when budget is not enough.
Remember to have all of these assets in the best conditions to prepare your firm in the challenges that it will face in getting new clients.
