3. Encouraging interaction and engagement in the client onboarding experience via Advicent Solutions

When you are first meeting with a new client, it is important to put your best foot forward. You need to be both engaging and flexible to their needs, as this first impression is so necessary to form a long-lasting client-advisor relationship down the road.

Being able to change topics easily and show that you are knowledgeable in all the fields that they ask shows that you are truly engaged and will be able to help them with any bumps in the road that they may encounter.

4. Voice search isn’t the next big disrupter, conversational AI is via Search Engine Land

Voice search is something that we discussed at the 2018 FPA Annual Conference in Chicago as such an important part of consumer behavior. It has been a major trend for 2018, but doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.

What is something that you may not know as much about, but is really making a splash? Conversational AI. There are many similarities between the two, however, there are some things that set Conversational AI apart from Voice search. Interested in finding out how these two tools stack up against each other? Read on below!

5. How Healthy is Your Workplace Financial Wellness Program? via Wavelength Financial

Having a workplace financial wellness program is something that is growing in popularity, and that’s a great thing considering how many people worry about financial problems and “what-ifs” everyday. But are they really helping?

While many people said it helped immediate issues such as budgeting and tackling debt, employees wanted something a bit different. Some topics that were addressed included:

1. Are the Steps Provided Easy Enough?
2. Is There Enough Content on Investing?
3. More Guidance, More Confidence
4. Liability Prevention for the Plan Sponsor
5. Is There a Link to Professional Help?
6. The Evolution of Financial Wellness Programs
