How Marketing-Minded Financial Planners Get Publicity

You've probably noticed, if you live on this planet, that we live in a media-driven world.

You may have mixed feelings, personally or philosophically, about this. But it's a fact of modern life. And in at least one very important way, it's good news.

This is how:

Living in a media-driven world is very good for professional practices, like financial planners. For anyone, in fact, who makes a living or runs an organization that is based on using their know-how or getting a message across.

Because if you fit any of these categories ? and most people do, even many who work with their hands ? you can get media coverage. Favorable, positive media publicity. Free publicity. And you can use that free publicity to build your practice.

Best of all, you don't have to resort to cheesy or tacky tactics to do it. You can do it responsibly and professionally. And still grow your business.

You're going to do it by using the very same expertise you tap into every day at work. Only instead of applying that expertise to your client, patient, or customer service, you're going to use it a little differently.

You're going to share your knowledge with the media ? and through them with the public. With the people and businesses who will become tomorrow's clients.
