Topic 1) 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).

Topic 2) 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.

Topic 3) 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.

Topic 4) 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.

Topic 5) 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.

Event Organizer FAQ

Does WealthVoice sponsor events?

No. Emily’s speaking is not sponsored, and is separate from her companies.

Rest assured that Emily’s presentations are not ads for WealthVoice or Beetle Moment. Great speaking requires years of experience, preparation, and unique ideas that are distilled into a 30-60 minute package that adds value to your event, both in the moment and in perpetuity through your recordings. You hire Emily for a performance combining vocalics, visuals, and stage presence. Your audience will tell their friends and you will sell even more tickets next year (look at Future Proof, where Emily was an inaugural event speaker).

As with anything in business and life, you get what you pay for. 🙂

Watch the clips and if it’s a fit, reach out – Emily would love to enhance your event.

What is your speaker fee?

It varies by the length and type of presentation or keynote. We’ve worked closely with event organizers and conference programming chairs for over seven years and love to partner in creating impactful audience experiences. Solo presentations start at $12k depending on length. Please reach out to discuss your event.

Panels (in person): Panelist participation or moderation starts at $5k.

Travel and accommodations are covered by the event organizer via reimbursement or a flat fee travel day rate. If your event is in Austin, no travel cost.

Will you customize a presentation or topic for me?

Yes, reach out. We can go a new direction or tweak one of the keynotes listed on this page to make this truly valuable for your specific audience.

What special value do you add from an event marketing standpoint?

I have a combined reach of over 83,000 professional followers between LinkedIn, X, YouTube, Instagram, blog, email, and my podcast. I offer dedicated social media promotion and event / company tagging as well as podcast mentions or videos to promote your event. Example video promo from AdviceTech Live.

Do you offer virtual speaking or just in-person?

I do both! For speaking in protein form: reach out here. For virtual: check out my recorded and live video content and mini-keynotes on ThinkersOne.

I'm not ready to book but want to stay in touch.
