Modern Marketing in Wealth Management Requires Prioritizing Social Media to Stay Ahead of Evolving Trends
The landscape of marketing has evolved drastically over the past few years, largely fueled by technological advancements and the constant quest for relevance. A discussion about this evolution is timely as we witness the convergence of marketing trends and the wealth management industry. Additionally, attracting younger investors today undoubtedly requires the use of social media. There’s even a renewed emphasis on staying ahead in marketing, particularly in the financial advisor world. Today, with almost 92 percent of financial advisors using social media for business, according to Putnam’s Social Advisor Survey, the stakes are higher than ever.
The core question that emerges from this shift is: How can financial advisors stay relevant and successful in an environment where marketing trends evolve so quickly?
