How to Get Clients for Less Than $10 a Month

Advisor Perspectives welcomes guest contributions. The views presented here do not necessarily represent those of Advisor Perspectives.

Yep, you read that right. I’m about to teach you how to get new clients for less than $10 a month.

Before we get started, throw out all this marketing clutter:

  • Brochures
  • Pitch books
  • Robotic cold-calling scripts
  • Lead-generation services
  • Newspaper advertisements
  • Steak dinners
  • Monogrammed water bottles
  • Cookie cutter newsletters
  • Top advisor lists

I’ll wait.

Did you toss it out? Okay, now let’s get on with it.

Societal isolation has led to rampant narcissism

I remember when I was little, I was in a pack of about 12 kids who would play stickball in the street. Then we would all go to someone’s house and watch Goonies. There were no babysitters; our neighbor, Mrs. Murray, would watch us and my mom would call on the corded phone to send us home at dinner. We didn’t have money, but we had each other.

Whenever I go back to my old house, though, I never see any kids playing in the street. They’re inside doped up on Ritalin on the Xbox. The Murrays moved out and a new family moved in, an unfriendly young couple people with a dog that barks a lot. My dad put up a row of bushes for privacy.
