For instance, you can write or post a video "manifesto" reinforcing to your target audience that they are doing the right thing, or you can post a "controversy" treatment on the same subject with an eye toward challenging your audience. 

 

You could look at this list post cynically as suggesting you use cheap tricks to hook readers, viewers, friends and followers. But Kasteler is merely suggesting that you use what in other times has been called a literary device.  

 

Using these simple devices for your business is not disingenuous. It's just smart because it can help you make your points more clearly.

 

For advisors, the writing devices suggested by Kasteler can help you convince people of your point. A manifesto preaching the benefits of low-cost index investing is likely to attract searches by those interested in that topic, and so might a story deriding actively managed funds or tactical asset allocation. 

 

Kasteler's post on SearchEngineLand is worthwhile to advisors trying to understand how they can create content that will boost their search engine rankings and attract the clients they want.

 

In addition to the 21 ideas, Kasteler makes an important point that advisors must consider in creating a content strategy that will drive search engine results.

 

"Viral content is quality content," says Kasteler. "It’s passionate, it’s well-written, it’s eloquent, or it’s hilarious." 

 

Now here's the clincher: "If you want the thousands of shares, you’re going to have to put into the hours to make something with real value for your audience," Kasteler adds.

 

Point is, advisors looking for shortcuts and magic apps to drive search engine results are, in the end, constrained by their ability to create valuable content. 

 

Therein lies the rub. You will need to be willing to put time into creating valuable blog posts, tweets, videos, slideshows and other content that your target market wants to see.

 

If you are not willing to put in that time on a sustained basis, your results probably won't be great.

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

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.

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.®

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
