The new program features professionally managed digital marketing campaigns tailored to the local market and each consultant’s goals, and complements the existing website and social media efforts.
“Part of the reason I moved my practice to Raymond James was the ability to use the resources of the marketing department to customize my brand,” said Nancy Leizman, financial advisor. “During my five-year tenure with the company, they continued to develop their services and improved and introduced new tools with the help of consultants. As a member of the company’s Marketing Advisory Council, I had the opportunity to present and evaluate the innovative marketing solutions. Tools like RJ Connect have allowed our team to leverage our reach for existing customers, and the ability to plan, customize and run a marketing campaign on my mobile device and all from a single source has been incredibly time-efficient. “
