Ep 83: The Importance of Your Marketing Strategy with Claire Akin

About the Topic

This week on Bridging The Gap, Claire Akin, CEO of Indigo Marketing Agency, joins us all the way from sunny San Diego.

We dig into the basics of embracing our speciality and delivering this to our clients, leading versus lagging, building and utilizing your content calendar, and the importance of marketing “you” as a person and not necessarily “you” as a brand or company. 

Claire also breaks down balancing what advisors want to write about versus what our clients want to read about in order to be able to meet in the middle.
