Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) May 27, 2014

Emotionally relevant branding can improve client relationships and energize business practices beyond the ho-hum, according to Sheri Fitts, ShoeFitts Marketing president. Fitts is speaking to financial life planners on the power of effective branding at the Money Quotient Retreat held September 18 and 19 at the Clearwater Resort in Suquamish, Washington.

“The financial life planners attending this conference look at all aspects of their clients’ life and don’t just talk numbers,” explains Fitts. “They are life and goal counselors, and they should tap into their unique approach to make sure their marketing aligns with this philosophy and service.”

“Branding must go beyond logos and catch phrases to get at the core elements of your financial life practice,” says Fitts. “Behind any super-powered brand are unique experiences, stories, and imagery that deepen your relationship with clients and prospects.”

Your brand starts with who you are, but Fitts notes, “there a lot of advisors who believe their brand is who they think their clients want them to be, so they are missing a valuable marketing perspective.”

In addition to her “Branding: Your Super Power” presentation, Fitts will also host a social media bootcamp following the retreat to provide hands-on platform tips on Saturday, September 20, from 8:30 to noon. “I am excited to not only talk about marketing, but for those who are interested, give them a boost on social media and how to use it effectively.”

Social media is an integral part of marketing and should be fully embraced. “Financial life planners need to make sure they understand the differences among the various platforms and how best to utilize the business opportunities,” Fitts says. “We’ll cover all the basics, plus review ways to use social media in an effective and stress-free manner.”

LinkedIn is a Waste of Time

Who has time for social media sites? And why bothering joining LinkedIn; it’s only good for creating a glorified resume, right? Clients only appreciate face-to-face contact in the financial services industry; social media is not for professionals.

My Dog, My Reality Check

Nearly every morning I head out with my beautiful little girl dog, aBoo (sounds like Abu), a 115-pound Newfoundland. We always walk the same trek: down the block, toward the neighborhood Catholic school, over a long hill, and then up 282 stairs to the top of Mount Tabor. The route is about three miles roundtrip or a bit more if we take the long way home.

I enjoy the walk, as it is great exercise, and the sunrise can be gorgeous from the top of the hill. Unfortunately, a recent morning walk wasn’t fun. In fact, it was quite frustrating. The problem? aBoo is a Snuffelator. When we walk she insists on stopping every several feet to sniff this and that, and all around. She also likes to stop in the middle of the sidewalk and wait for me to bribe her with a biscuit as payment for accompanying me on the walk. Note: She does not do this in the evenings when we are on “her” walk. Nope.
