In AIFG 109 Ms. Berg approaches marketing in part from the perspective of the “Critical Path Success Business Growth” model, an innovative protocol for selling, and promoting, on and off line, often with little or no budget. Students will learn how to respond to the “fear and inertia” that often restrains boomers and seniors from making sound financial decisions, choosing a professional advisor, or finalizing their plans. The course includes how to create effective marketing messages and how to create and promote your own unique brand, while staying compliant and utilizing best practices. Students will learn the art of client and mission-centric financial communication, as required by the NASD and SEC. The course will also teach you how to create strategic alliances with non-financial professionals for purposes of business development, brand building, and reaching out to the caregivers who are or soon will be in charge of their parents' finances.
