Episode #1 How to Create 50 Leads Per Month Using Free YouTube Traffic Play

In Episode 1 of 31 of March “Hangout” Madness, Joe and Luke Simonds discuss the secret to how they successfully generate 50 leads per month with nothing but a simple landing page (that took 10 minutes to create) and Free YouTube Traffic.

Episode #2 Discover the Small Website Change That Increased Our Leads 119% Play

Episode 2 of 31 in March Hangout Madness occurred on a Sunday so all of the digital marketing for financial advisors tips, tricks, and how-to’s were done by myself and my bro Luke Simonds (sans guests).  And on this episode, we discuss how one small change in our website landing pages literally doubled our conversation rates from around 15% to well over 30%.

Episode #3 “Riches are made from Niches” Play

“Riches are made from Niches”, says Stan the Annuity Man on Episode 3 of Hangout Madness with Joe and Luke Simonds.  A phrase so simple, so powerful, yet few in the financial services industry have the gumshoe or courage to actually do it.  I can imagine it was even a pretty big leap of faith for Stan as he went from a “suit wearing” stuffy stock broker at a large investment firm, to a “Run DMC” sweat suit wearing annuity celebrity who calls himself “Stan the Annuity Man”.

Episode #4 What Financial Advisors Can Learn From Seth Godin Play

Are you a financial advisor?  Do you truly understand marketing and feel like you “excel” at marketing?  My guess is that most of you are incredible salesmen and saleswomen, but you feel you could be better in regards to marketing.

Well I have an incredible marketing resource for you then!  2 words…Seth Godin.

Who is Seth Godin and what does he have to do with financial advisors?

Episode #5 How To Blog Like The Annuity Gator Play

Episode 5 of Hangout Madness brought back one of the crowd favorites to our live platform…Mr. Jason Wenk, the founder of Annuity Gator.  In his first appearance on New Year’s Eve (where we had over 1,200 advisors and insurance agents register to see the event, Jason Wenk and Joe Simonds discussed “How an ex-seminar producer wrote $60 million in 2013“.  The replay has been shown almost 1,500 more times as of this writing as the topic of “educating, creating prospects, building a loyal tribe, and a successful business” like Jason Wenk has done is an incredibly HOT TOPIC.

Episode #6 How a “Ninja Like” LinkedIn Group System Created 1,326 Quality Prospects in 6 Months Play

Wow!  What an awesome hangout today with Don Brailsford talking about a LinkedIn Group System where he is building large LinkedIn Groups for financial professionals.   In particular, if you are a financial advisor, Don and his team create a group, build the group to 1,000+ local members, nurture it, do all of the hard work, position you as the “expert” and “go-to” leader, and then hand it over to you to run full time.

Some of the groups that they have created for advisors now have up to 16,000 LinkedIn members!  And keep in mind that some advisor is the “president and leader” of this group.  Kind of like being the president of your own virtual Chamber of Commerce!  Talk about being a celebrity and having some major authority!
