In today's episode Matt is joined by the coach to the advisors, Stephen Wershing of Client Drive Practice. Together, Matt and Stephen discuss the important difference between a target market and niche. While everyone has a target market (that is a group of people you are specifically trying to attract to your practice), many advisors are still falling short of developing a strong and sustainable niche in their target market. A niche on the other hand is a unique experience you create to attract some of the individuals in your target market. Stephen and Matt dive into the particulars of what it takes to develop a strong and viable niche to drive people to your firm, and develop a strong referral marketing system.
