5 Reasons Monetizing Intellectual Property Is Important Hot

Monetizing intellectual property does several things for our clients. Among them are:
It forces our clients to think about what makes their company unique. If a company is not unique, it only has a commodity to sell. When we help our clients understand what is unique about their company we are helping them understand how to build enterprise value within their company.
 
Monetizing intellectual property provides a new income stream. When we help a client monetize their intellectual capital, almost every dollar that is produced goes straight to the bottom line. This not only improves present cash flow but also provides the opportunity to help our clients get a higher multiple when it comes time for them to leave their business.
It allows our clients to think about niches they serve and how their intellectual property fits in. Understanding niche management is one of the main advantages of working with intellectual property. In many companies the knowledge of niches they service is the main value of that company. Understanding and being able to speak the language of your clients is a very real and important competitive advantage that leads to understanding your niche.
It can provide the impetus to productize processes they use, but don’t get paid for. When our clients think about their intellectual capital in the form of a product they will often think differently about processes they’ve often taken for granted within their business. Helping our clients understand how they can convert their intellectual processes to products provides new revenue streams and ways for our clients to think about their business.
Working on intellectual capital projects is always strategic. In many businesses the business owner often gets in the way because they won’t leave the tactical world of their business. When you get them to work on intellectual capital projects you are always moving from a tactical world to a strategic one. It’s the strategic world where clients learn about value and most importantly enterprise value.
If we are to be successful helping our clients change how they see their business we must help them to not only think strategically, but also act strategically. When we do this we are putting our clients in a position to change their relationship with their business and open more options on both a business and personal level.
I’m interested in hearing any thoughts you might have on how helping clients think differently about their intellectual property has changed your practice.

A Strategically Focused CE Curriculum

With classes approved for over a decade by the CFP Board, IWI, and NASBA, Advisors4Advisors CE classes are an optimal knowledge stream for CFP®, CIMA®, CPA, CPA/PFS®, CFA®, and other practitioners. It's not a grab bag of speakers willing to sponsor CE content. Nor is it a one-man CE course. It's a group of subject matter experts with amazing communication skills and a history of thought leadership that, together, give advisors a well-rounded knowledge system for running a professional practice ethically and intelligently.

CE Since October 2008

A4A CE classes for financial professionals began in October 2008, the week Lehman Bros. collapsed. Initially billed as “The Financial Crisis Webinar Series,” A4A connects advisors with authoritative sources on investing, tax, and financial planning, chosen by A4A Editor Andrew Gluck, a veteran financial reporter. A4A members get a stream of CE classes for an advisor who: 

  • holds a CFP®, CIMA®, CPA, CPA/PFS, CFA or other designation requiring CE annually 
  • values monthly CE classes by Fritz Meyer, Craig Israelsen, Bob Keebler, Frank Murtha, or Andrew Gluck
  • diversifies a core of client portfolios in low-expense funds
  • invests based on MPT and economic fundamentals
  • advises on tax and financial planning as well as investing
  • needs financial counseling skills
  • wants the Certified Financial Counselor™ designation 
  • is building a brand as a thought leader locally or in a niche
  • wants the facts when bad news breaks
  • wants CE aligned with a content marketing system
  • wants 24/7 access to CE on-demand
  • insists on objective evidenced-based tax and investment planning analysis

It is not possible for me to overstate the cumulative value that Craig, Bob and Fritz have added for over 10 years to my investment advisory practice, as well as for personal and family financial planning. A4A gets my highest recommendation
Lynn Najman, CFP®
I’ve subscribed to A4A since its inception, and always find it intellectually stimulating and on point. It’s one of the few CE solutions out there that doesn’t waste my time by pushing product or talking down to me.

A4A has had a profound effect on my business. Since 2009, I’ve relied on the consistent messaging and updates to run my business successfully. Being able to present the information from Bob, Fritz, and Craig's ongoing CE webinars has been a significant benefit.

Fredric Mayerson, MBA, PhD, CFP®
I've been a financial professional and professor of finance for 35 years and find Fritz Meyer and Robert Keebler to be among the most engaging, incredibly knowledgeable, and experienced presenters I’ve encountered. They deliver an extraordinary amount of information in an extremely interesting way — sequentially and developmentally, utilizing pedagogical tools and techniques that few possess.  A4A to is the most consistently excellent CE program available.  
Ron Roge, MS, CFP®
I’ve been attending A4A many years because the CE classes are outstanding, and my time is valuable. Though I have over 35 years of experience, I’m always learning something new on A4A. I attend fewer conferences now because the CE is generally not advanced. If you want to learn from the best, in a faster, easier, and less expensive way, I highly recommend A4A.

John R. Day, CPA/PFS®

I’ve been a member since 2011 and never miss the monthly webinars with Fritz Meyer. I appreciate Fritz’s independent views on the economy and markets and Bob Keebler keeps me updated on excellent tax planning ideas. A4A is a great value!

I wouldn't miss a Fritz Meyer webinar unless my pants were on fire. I've relied on Andrew Gluck's knowledge systems --client communications and CE -- for two decades. It's simply the best solution for tax, financial, investment, and risk-management professionals.®   

Dan Hawley, CFP® 

A4A, for over a decade, has been a great resource for useful and accurate information and CE. A4A and Advisor Products are bargains for an advisory practice.

I get CPA CE credit and CFP credit for the webinars.  But not only that, the A4A content is terrific
