Break the Container with Zero-Click Content

Ignoring marketing trends and how younger investors search, decide, and buy could put your firm’s valuation and longevity at risk. I cover three ways you’ll benefit from zero-click content featuring case studies, inspiration, and ideas.

Financial Planning Stats – Generational Engagement and Revenue:

  • Households in which the next generation is engaged generate 160% of the revenues and 270% of the profits of households without family engagement.
  • 85% of Gen Y and Z would like some form of behavioral coaching from their advisors (vs. just 25% of Baby Boomers). (Fidelity)
  • 40% of Gen Z & Millennials think it’s important for advisors to regularly post on social media (versus 4% of Baby Boomers).
  • 56% of Gen Z & Millennials intentionally go to social media to find financial advice.

What future proof firms do:

  • Give it away for free to make money later. Paywalls and gated content are over. 
  • How people find you and grow to trust you has changed.
  • What works on social media (TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, podcasts, and audiograms).

Love Bombed then Ghosted: The Online Dating Mistakes Your Brand is Making

Abstract: In initial attraction, we are often drawn to someone’s desirable traits or status. But what makes a lasting relationship is how that person makes you feel—not how you feel about them.

Marketing is parallel to dating in the digital age. We’ll take an entertaining look at pitfalls like inauthenticity, lack of understanding, and over-reliance on technology.

Outsourcing Marketing Costs You 200% (Real Talk: People + Tools)

Abstract: Why is the average advisor’s CAC over $3000, while robos pay $500-$1000? Gaps in talent combined with stack bloat deteriorate your budget, results, and ultimately your brand. I’ll show you how to avoid spending 3x on client acquisition.

Your Future with Generative AI: Transform Content Marketing for the Next Generation

  • Landscape, predictions, and tips for harnessing generative AI (such as ChatGPT and MusicLM) for advisors and financial brands to level up their content marketing and save time.
  • Crack open the concept of containers, i.e. the standard formats and lengths for social media, email, podcasts, blogs, videos, and all content marketing – and how the old ways of creating content are being upended.
  • Examples of established content and how they always evolve – the newspaper article, the book, the textbook, the radio program. Where are they now? What newcomers successfully changed the container (tweets, blog posts, video education e.g. youtube, Flash Briefings, podcasts…)
  • Where generative AI fits in to your marketing strategy.
  • Alternative voice marketing you can create instead of standard podcasts.

Dead on Arrival: Marketing When Not Marketable (The 7 Whys)

Abstract: Don’t worry about emojis in your LinkedIn posts or what to say on Instagram. Start with what makes you marketable in the first place. Everything else is just a tactic.

$BRND: An investment AND an asset!

For example, let’s look at financial services: With 50% of the U.S. having $0 for retirement and 40% without $400 for an emergency, financial literacy is in crisis.

Our information diets are saturated but all this content isn’t helping. How do you cut through the noise? Whether you’re a financial advisor or institution, great marketing can reach clients and investors effectively. I’ll share proven methods with specific tips.
