How We Help Financial Advisors Win in the Digital World

by The Seven Team

It’s no secret that the last 16 months has changed how we do business in a big way. But it’s also changed how investors manage their financial picture.

Investor participation in the market in the last 5-months was more than in the last 12 years combined1, and investors who want financial advice are more likely to start online.

Investors are turning to advisors in a big way, and they expect advisors to meet them where they are – online.

  • 98% of investors said a financial advisor’s website was important to them2
  • 42% of investors said they started the process of finding an advisor with an online search2
  • 37% of investors said they were more likely to choose an advisor who is active on social media2

Between market participation and the way investors interact with advisors – the need for advisors to have an effective digital presence is more important than ever before.

But the problem is that the majority of Financial Advisors face one of two marketing problems: They either rely solely on referrals or are marketing with no real direction.

This leads to advisors jumping from platform to platform, performing random acts of marketing, wasting money and time, and often quitting on marketing before they can see an impact.

The current solutions in the market don’t fill the need. They are either too expensive (agencies) or don’t provide financial advisors with the guidance they need to execute marketing properly (traditional fintech).

That’s where we come in. We launched Seven to bring together the best of two worlds into a single platform.
