Decades ago, financial advisors built their businesses through old-fashioned means – joining community organizations, networking with peers, and hosting seminars. While today’s financial advisors must consider all those strategies too, their marketing plans can’t end there.

The internet has ushered in a whole new world of marketing and audience-building opportunities that cannot be ignored. Well, you can ignore the internet, but you can rest assured your competitors will fill the gaps and find your potential clients where they are – online.

This is part of the reason financial advisors need to stay on top of their game and constantly be in learning mode. There’s so much to know about marketing your financial advisory business in this brave new world.

If you’re worried about getting left behind or simply want to make sure you stay on top of industry trends, listen to podcasts dedicated to helping financial advisors.

Why podcasts? They’re available on-demand and easy to consume on your way to work, at the gym, or any time you have a few minutes to spare.

To help get you started, here are my five favorite podcasts for financial advisors in growth mode.

1. Financial Advisor Success Podcast

The Financial Advisor Success Podcast is hosted by none other than Michael Kitces, an industry expert and entrepreneur who is renowned for his technical planning knowledge and innovative ideas.

Kitces tackles important concepts surrounding personal development, practice management, and advisor marketing, and he does so through his own research as well as interviews with expert guests.

It’s common for these podcast episodes to run well over an hour, but they’re worth a listen if you’re ready to take your business to the next level. You can find the Financial Advisor Success Podcast online using apps like Apple Podcasts or Spotify, or on Kitces.com.
