February is the shortest month of the year, and we surely felt that this year. This month flew by, and it’s hard to believe that this is the last Five Little Things article of February. Let’s send the month off on a high note with an article about using TikTok to provide financial advice, digital marketing and the ROI involved, marketing opportunities due to the SEC Ad rule, how to attract clients and so much more.
In the past, financial advisors saw social media as a marketing tool that targeted only younger generations, however, that narrative is definitely changing. If you type in the hashtag #personalfinance into TikTok, thousands of 60-second videos that provide financial advice and explanations of keywords will come up on the platform. Is this going to be the way of the future or a downfall? Find out what others have to say about this social media trend.
Samatha Russell caught up with Advisorpedia to discuss why digital marketing matters and how to measure return on investment. In this podcast, she discusses:
- How to leverage both business and personal messages most effectively across the different social media outlets
- Why it is important to engage on social media rather than simply posting and then waiting for followers
- How you can gauge what the most effective digital medium is for your message
- How you should be measuring success in your digital marketing efforts
Tune in and start boosting your digital marketing efforts.

5. The Key Difference Between Wanting & Receiving Referrals (and it’s not asking!) via Red Zone Marketing
Why should a potential client choose you over someone else or why would someone recommend you to others?
Answer: The Client Experience
Referrals are one of the biggest drivers of new clients, and much of this comes from a positive experience. In fact, in a research series conducted by Red Zone Marketing of over 2,000 financial advisors, they found that 51% of advisors received the same amount of referrals in 2020 as in 2019 and 33% of the top producers received more than in 2019. So, what was the difference?
Answer: Commitment to the clients.
