Recording your screen is the best way for advisors to create video content. After making videos with advisors for a few years, I can report that none of the dozens of advisors I’ve interviewed on camera are media stars. Advisors are not models, actors, or professional spokespeople. Some of you are terrible on camera.
 
Recording your screen to display PowerPoint slides or PDF client financial planning reports while you narrate and record the audio is the best way for advisors to use video to get in front of clients, prospects, and centers of influence. Since financial data in charts and graphics makes great visuals, adding your narration is a genuinely nice way to educate your audience on financial matters. This the best way to create your own content to improve your client relations, lead generation campaigns, email newsletters, and search engine rankings.

Since financial advisors are not making Hollywood productions with people on camera, indoor and outdoor lighting, and special audio and visual effects, you don’t need a complicated app like Premier or Final Cut. TechSmith’s Camtasia Studio is the right tool.

I’ve been using Camtasia for about 10 years and I am sad to admit I have spent more than 500 hours editing videos using the program. At a webinar, I offered tips about how advisors can use Camtasia Studio to make videos.

TechSmith appreciates the coverage I’ve given them over the years and has provided Advisors4Advisors with three licenses to Camtasia Studio that we are raffling off.  Each license normally costs $299.

To ensure we give away these licenses to advisors likely use the software, we’re raffling it off to the first three advisors who watch the webinar and email the correct answers these the following three questions to admin at advisors4advisors.com:
  • What size is Andy’s reflective umbrella?
  • If you wanted to import slides into Camtasia, what file type does Andy suggest you use?
  • Name one of the two Camtasia transition effects Andy mentioned were his favorites.
 
By the way, my presentation about how advisors can use Camtasia covers:
  • How to make videos like as good as I do
  • Step by step instructions for turning PowerPoint presentations into educational videos
  • How to add visual cues that make technical content easier to understand
  • Tips for using key features in Camtastia Studio—zooming, importing clips, transitions and more
  • What kind of computer equipment you need to make your own videos
 Go watch it and answer the questions to win a free license to this valuable video editing tool for advisors.
 
By the way, Fritz Meyer and I collaborate to provide RIAs with a quarterly presentation for advisors to give investors, and it is perfect this purpose. We give you 15 or 20 gorgeous looking slides and a script that you can narrate. Record your narration and give the script your personal spin to produce professional videos that make you look good (because you're off camera.)

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.

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
