Advisors are notoriously wasting money on their websites. If your website is failing to generate leads for you, it is because the content is not jiving psychologically with prospects.

  • [Frame 6:05] How to visually set up your website – graphics, photos and imagery
  • [Frame 11:20] The false perception that advisors have to project perfection and be all-knowing.  This is at odds with how people really feel because we’re so imperfect. How do we visually present who we really are while at the same time showing credibility?

  • [Frame 15:22] How to create relatable content for your website
