Creating Your Online Image: Steps to Building an Effective Online Presence

Your digital presence speaks volumes about your identity as an advisor. Through my conversations with advisors nationwide, it’s evident that this aspect is often underused and undervalued. When a client recommends you to a friend, where do you think they’ll turn first? Most likely, it’s Google. They’ll scour the web to understand who you are and the clientele you serve. It’s crucial to accurately portray yourself and your capabilities with an updated website and actively managed social media profiles.

Potential clients can easily gauge your alignment with their financial goals through these channels. A robust and truthful online presence effortlessly attracts the right clientele.

If you’re yet to establish this facet of your business, here are a few steps to kickstart your journey:

  1. Clarify the purpose of your social media activity before posting. Many advisors I speak with are uncertain about their social media goals. Having a clear purpose guides your content choices and website keywords effectively.
  2. Develop a plan and set achievable goals. Determine deadlines for website updates and posting frequency on platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. While you needn’t plan every post in detail, outlining content themes ensures consistency.
  3. Utilize content sources that align with your core values and offerings. Leveraging existing content saves time, but ensure it’s from reputable sources.
  4. Allocate dedicated time each week. Spend an hour weekly to curate and schedule content using social media management tools like Buffer or Facebook’s Creator Studio. Alternatively, delegate these tasks to your team members.

Remember, “The best time to start was yesterday. The next best time is now.”
