Such a video is far more interesting to watch than a slide show because it shows your face and body language. This Web marketing idea is powerful for strong communicators, especially photogenic ones.
If you put yourself out there in Web videos with sensible financial planning and investment ideas, you’ll get an audience from search engines.
Touch screen TVs aren’t cheap, however. The one I was eyeing costs about $5000. Touch screen overlays seemed like the better way to go. With an overlay, you can do all the same things as a touch screen. Touch screen overlays have an advantage, however: big touch screen TVs are commercial grade. They're built to take a licking. But they don’t match the technical specifications you  get on a much less expensive consumer TV model. But if you won’t be shipping the TV frequently or rolling it around your building, you could get a less durable consumer model with much higher contrast ratio, better color, and even 3-D.
I've waiting for the new generation of OLED TVs to come out this spring and summer to make my move, and then I bought an iPad and figured out a way to eliminate the need for a touch screen or overlay. That’s a way to save $3,000!
The new iPad comes with a new version of Apple TV, which costs $99. This appliance enables you to stream any content on your iPad to an HDTV. Instead of needing a touch screen to control a slide show or Website on big screen, you use your iPad to control what’s displayed on your HDTV. For aging athletes like myself who may not always look very graceful moving items across a big screen, this is good.
Picture yourself all dressed up in a well-lit room getting videoed while delivering a presentation on an income tax strategy for Silicon Valley executives with stock options. Or maybe you’d talk about cash-flow challenges faced by young doctors. Or you could do a 10 minute video targeted local CPAs about the current economic environment. You're using an iPad to control the presentation while you're being videoed. Mostly you're talking into a camera standing in front of a big screen, and every once in a while you're using you're iPad to move the preentation forward. You can do this!
Videos with targeted content indexed by search engines  should improve your chances of getting found by your target clients. Also, if you’re friendly and mean to do good for people, it will show up in your videos. The camera does not lie, and the Web will help you get found.
I’ll be getting my iPad in about a week and will let you know how it works out.
If you’re doing this already, let us know.

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

William Desormeau, Jr. CFP®, AIF®
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.


Pete Deacon, CPA, CFP®
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!


Norman Politziner, CFP

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. 


Kevin Brosious, MBA, CFP®, CPA/PFS®

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