HB Clients in the National (and International) Media

While our President may not have a high regard for the conventional media, high performing financial advisors are using it to their advantage. In fact, our annual survey of nearly 300 wealth advisors and CPAs revealed that being quoted in the press is one of the three most effective thought leadership tactics being used today.

Nearly half (46%) of respondents to our 2019 CPA/Wealth Advisor Confidence Survey said being quoted in the press was “Very” or “Extremely” effective for building thought leadership. What’s more, 48 percent of advisors who expected double-digit revenue growth in 2019 told us that media coverage was “Very” or “Extremely” effective for them. Only public speaking and writing articles for publication rated higher.

Conclusion

You might also notice from the stats above that firms expecting to grow in 2019 were more likely than firms expecting a flat year to find value in media coverage. You can tweet, post and like till you’re blue in the face, but it’s hard to beat the impact of honest to goodness “earned media” coverage.
