Financial Advisors Marketing: Keep the Pipeline Moving
My May 2011 Research Magazine article, "Managing the Pipeline," dealt with keeping the pipeline moving. All of your financial advisor marketing is wasted if you do not relentlessly track each sales lead. Keep each one moving.
In "Managing the Pipeline," I showed you how to use what a client or prospect deeply wants to keep the pipeline moving. But I did not deal with how to capture that information.
I said, "Sometimes, the person knows exactly what he or she is trying to accomplish. But if I have any question that it might be something else, I will cycle back and re-ask the question, sometimes several times." I then referred you to this page. Here I have a set of tools, not only to find out what your clients and prospects really want, but to help move the sale through to a timely, profitable conclusion.
