QUESTION

Can true value be found in social media engagements with clients?

ANSWER

Yes, I have found that clients really want to connect with an adviser before they sit down with them, and social media provides a platform for this.
No, This industry has become what it is today because business was done in a certain way. Social Media engagement, if any, should be minimal.
