In a series of blogs in December we’ve been discussing some new initiatives, sources of information and new technologies I’ve incorporated into my practice. In this post, we’ll continue with a few additional items which may be of interest to you. We’ll begin with surveys, move to online meetings and conclude with a solution to the problem of tracking a client’s progress as they implement recommendations resulting from a financial plan.
We all want to know what our clients think. We can certainly ask them face to face. However, surveys add a dynamic which allows clients to speak with anonymity. There are several good options such as Survey Monkey, Client Heartbeat, and others. I’ve decided on typeform.com. Typeform is an intuitive, cloud-based platform which allows you to create some very unique surveys, launch them and analyze the data as it returns. Typeform is in Beta mode and it’s free.

I’m confident most of you have attended an online webinar at some point. If not, perhaps you’ve had a meeting with another person via the cloud. There are a number of good solutions for this. We’ve decided to use join.me. Join.me is easy to use and they offer a free version which limits the number of attendees. Therefore, if you’d like to conduct online meetings with groups, you will want to upgrade. Even then, the cost is minimal, around $150-$200 per year. To learn more, go to join.me
