Storyselling for Financial Advisors Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HIGHLY PERSUASIVE individuals, including many top financial professionals, engage clients by using similes, metaphors, anecdotes, and illustrations. They ask open-ended questions, and listen intently to clients' stories, histories, and backgrounds to elicit valuable information and make deep human connections. This communication style allows them to better serve their clients' financial needs — and sell more effectively in the process.<P>In Storyselling for Financial Advisors, authors Scott West and Mitch Anthony explain how to make these intuitive connections, and they outline understandable and practical strategies that any financial professional can use. The stories of Warren Buffet — one of the greatest "storysellers" of all time — and others help financial pros tap into the gut reaction of different types of clients, all the while engaging both sides of the brain — the logical side and the emotional, intuitive side. Storyselling persuasion techniques offer: <BR>-- insights to encourage others to tell their stories<BR>-- techniques for making memorable and understandable client presentations<BR>-- strategies for tapping into the affluent market<BR>-- ways to approach women investors<BR>-- surefire tactics that address the unique stories behind the 65+ market<BR>-- methods for using stories and analogies to illustrate abstract investment concepts such as compound interest, growth and value, retirement, and more.<P>Storyselling for Financial Advisors is the first book to combine whole-brain persuasion techniques with the sales of financial products. Follow this guide and soon you will be on your way to becoming a financial services professional who: <BR>-- sells in an illustrativeand straight-forward manner.<BR>-- excels in relating and communicating with clients.<BR>-- develops specialized audiences for your services.

Book News Annotation:

Financial and communications consultants West and Anthony find that the top producers in the financial world do not emphasize numbers and charts to sell their services, but instead ask provocative and incisive questions. Not only can they get powerful insights for meeting the client's financial needs, but the clients are more likely to do business where they feel they have been received with respect and understanding. They explain the technique.

Synopsis:

"I founded H.D. Vest on the idea that clients are much more willing to invest with someone who they know has their best interests at heart. Scott West and Mitch Anthony have lucidly explained how the art of the raconteur and the niche-picking strategy of the entrepreneur can combine with this personal approach to make for incredible selling success. I will enthusiastically recommend this book to our representatives".--Herb D. Vest, Chairman and CEO, H.D. Vest.
