Twenty Over Ten

FMG Suite

Advisor Websites

Advisor Launchpad


What to Know (What’s Unique)

With the recent launch of our second version (v2), Twenty Over Ten has taken the title for the most comprehensive website management and blogging tool for financial advisors. And now, they are also the most secure. All clients on v2 can add SSL certificates to their sites automatically, with no additional cost which increases security for website visitors and boosts SEO. With a single monthly price, all advisors have the ability to manage their entire online marketing campaign and tailor their website design and content to add unlimited landing pages, lead generation forms, and all content is easy to update with an intuitive inline editor.

Perhaps the most important feature though, is Twenty Over Ten’s support team and the fact that all clients (whether they build themselves or leverage the Twenty Over Ten team to build a website for them) can speak to a designer to help them communicate what makes them unique.

What To Know (What’s Unique)

FMG Suites is perhaps the largest player currently in the market. They offer a suite of tools for online marketing (including email and video), but this of course can be pricey (upwards of $200/mo in addition to the setup fees). They come equipped with preloaded content, which can be a benefit for some advisors, but beware that content farming is bad for SEO and that content is available to all other advisors on the platform. Advisors have the ability to customize their site (at least to a minimal degree) but it comes with a price. Prepare to pay a big fee for something custom.

What to Know (What’s Unique)

As the oldest player in the market, Advisor Websites serves a broad range of financial advisors. While they offer a low price-point for their base StartUp package, keep in mind customization and compliance archiving is not included here. While Advisor Websites come with preloaded content (excluding the StartUp package), beware that content farming is bad for SEO and that content is available to all other advisors on the platform.

Furthermore, landing pages come with an additional cost of $9/mo. Adding integrations also comes with a price, clocking in at $25/mo. White-labeling your website also comes with a $300 one-time fee. As you can see, the cost can rack up quickly for a lot of core features you may want to have a truly unique presence online.
