Financial Advisor Marketing Agency

Traffic. Leads. Clients.

The bottom line for your marketing is to grow your business at a cost that is less than the revenue that is generated, right? Sounds simple enough, but the challenge lies in sorting through all of the competing information, programs, and marketing options.

For more than 10 years we’ve been obsessed with understanding how Google works and how to apply that knowledge to help financial firms grow their bottom lines through SEO.

What We’ve Learned.

First, search engine optimization is “knowable.” There are concrete steps you can take to successfully get found by prospects online.

Second, while search engine optimization can be simplified into a specific and well-defined strategy, it’s NOT easy. There are no shortcuts, quick fixes, or easy buttons that work for the long term. Good SEO involves taking a holistic approach and customizing your plan based on your business, competitors, and location. It means ensuring your website, your core digital asset, can power the growth of your business for the long term.


Jane Yoo, Jane FinancialBrien has taken my website and marketing to a new level. The majority of my prospective clients find me through internet searches. Although two years of blogging helped attract attention, I needed to work on SEO to attract more qualified leads, particularly after raising my minimum retainer. Brien’s SEO expertise was invaluable since I was a total novice.

The Website Hosting service dramatically improved my site speed, which is a key component of SEO. The Website Audit improved the SEO of all of my website pages and blog posts, and guided my marketing plan for the year. I highly recommend Brien to other independent fee-only financial advisors.

Home“I have worked with Brent multiple times over the last several years, and have been completely satisfied every time. Brent went through my website and worked on SEO, local SEO optimization, and blogging/link back strategies, and within a few months, I was #1 on Google search for my targeted keywords.

He is also a fantastic educator and has provided our group of advisors with great information to be able to manage our own SEO strategies.

I highly recommend Brent as both an SEO and marketing expert, as well as a speaker.”

Georgia Bruggeman, CFPThe biggest driver of me hiring Brien was I had no time to focus on SEO and I do not have the skills. There is a lot to know. My time is better spent on planning and managing portfolios for my clients. They do not pay me to optimize my website!

Not long after Brien began doing SEO for our website we noticed a higher volume of calls and emails inquiring about our services. It has only increased since then. SEO has had a significant impact on the volume of traffic to our website resulting in new prospect meetings.
