If a client is at a car dealership and needs to know if he should lease or buy a car, he can chat you. If a young couple are at an open-house and want to confirm they indeed can afford to bid on their dream home, they can chat you.

 

For financial professionals, implementing a chat service model can eliminate the roboadvisor threat and improve your service virtually overnight. CFPs, CIMAs, ChFCs, CLUs, CFAs, CPA financial planners, and other financial professionals know their clients better than roboadvisors. Roboadvisors cannot compete with you in giving specific advice to individuals at the moment they need it! Call centers are not equipped to dispense the personal nature of advice you provide. Chat, as a medium for serving clients, unlocks this competitive advantage.

 

To grow, you must give advice when your clients need it. Find out how an easy to use cloud solution may be the answer.
