Conduct a confidential client satisfaction survey through Spectrem Group. Your client information will be subject to a confidentiality agreement that meets all legal and regulatory requirements; their information will not be shared with anyone. You will receive a comprehensive report of the findings and the top level results will be posted on Best Financial Advisor. Results can be posted on your site as well. You will receive a more comprehensive analysis of the results and a comparison to other advisors. You will receive a Client Centric Advisor rating for conducting the survey and will have a unique icon that indicates you have completed a client survey. This will allow your name to pop to the top of advisor searches by prospects in your geography. You can also compare your results to others in our database.
Your clients may randomly be interviewed for monthly research conducted by Spectrem Group, however, this does not guarantee that all of your clients will be included. Unless a complete survey is conducted, you will not meet the SEC guidelines that allow you to post ratings.
Why do I want to be listed?
Investors are increasingly looking online for information to validate referrals they may have received about advisors. Third party rating services are common in many industries from doctors to contractors to restaurants. If investors see that you are not included on the site, they may presume it is because you fear poor ratings.
Best Financial Advisor controls the environment. While an advisor cannot control what a client says, Best Financial Advisor allows only an advisor’s actual clients to supply ratings and commentary, unlike non-controlled environments, where anyone(including competitors) can post a comment.
