Stop guessing how to do marketing

Would you prefer to be audited rather than write your own website and plan ad campaigns?

You know your business needs marketing to keep growing but you don’t want to be the one to do it.

You are:

Too busy running a business to become a marketing expert.

A numbers person, not a wordsmith.

Losing clients to competitors.

Wasting time on unqualified leads instead of your ideal client.

Unable to hire the talent you need.

Marketing your financial services company shouldn’t be this draining.

You don’t have to figure out marketing on your own.

You deserve a marketing strategy that works for your financial services firm

Many finance businesses view marketing the way the rest of us view taxes: as an intimidating and time-consuming necessary evil.

We understand that building your brand and attracting your ideal clients isn’t easy. And there are companies in your inbox (or spam box) who are making all kinds of vague promises about leads and metrics and SEO. Tempting, right?

Sustained growth takes more than a single, shiny marketing tactic. It takes an experienced partner and a strategic plan. We’re a full-service agency that helps local service companies add digits to their bottom line, attract qualified leads, and hire top talent.

CPA company had 80% increase in yearly sales.

Tax company added 8 expert professionals to their team in just 2 months.

Our website was outdated and we felt it was not representing us well online. Guide MKTG was incredible listening to us about who we are and translated this into beautiful verbiage for our new website. We choose Guide because they were well versed in the StoryBrand ecosystem and now our website is both aesthetically pleasing and communicates who we are through the clear messaging. We are very pleased with Josh & Becky and the team!

I was feeling anxious about the state of our website and less-than-active blog. I needed to improve both if the company was going to keep growing.

Guide MKTG and Yodamojo solved my problems. They wrote outstanding content and wrapped it all in a great web design! Now our site is working just the way I wanted it to.

My new challenge? Serving all of our new clients!

Why can’t I just DIY my marketing?

You could — just like your clients could DIY their 1040 or 401K.

Just because it can be done doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.

DIY marketing will get you DIY-caliber clients. If you’d rather work with clients who understand the value of an expert, you need expert marketing to showcase your business.

DIY rarely pays off in the end. Please don’t waste good money on bad marketing. Partner with an expert. You stick with the numbers and we will take care of the words.

Hire better and faster than your competition!

“We are now getting hundreds of qualified applicants per month thanks to the content Guide MKTG wrote. We’ve hired 4 tax professionals in the first 6 weeks and have more in process.

I’m networked with dozens of other CPA firms who are turning away client work because they don’t have enough staff. I’ve told them to hire GUIDE to create all of their hiring content.”
