Analytics

Your website can be either your biggest asset or your largest liability.

About 93% of all online interactions between a consumer and a brand still begin “the old-fashioned way”—with a search engine. But more than that, about 70% of the links that search users click on are organic—meaning that most people (to the tune of about 70% to 80%, as per the aforementioned study) tend to ignore paid ads on engines like Google entirely, instead focusing on the organic results.

All of this means that when people go looking for a financial advisor, the vast majority of the time they’re going to discover your business in the exact same way—via your website. With that in mind, financial advisor web design doesn’t just become important.
