PROSPECTING EXAMPLE: Social networks allow advisors to connect more effectively with prospects by understanding them in a real-time context. As a result, it’s much easier to target your advertisements to prospects’ direct needs. There is no regulation or compliance requirement on listening to what your prospects and clients are saying—listen in for life events. Your two eyes are now two ears (as if you were sitting face-to-face with a client). You won’t cut them off before they can speak; you don’t even have to worry about asking a client the right open-ended question. They are already telling you what you want to know. It is so easy to listen while looking at a Facebook thread. Potential clients’ lives are streaming in real time. Your clients’ important life events are being documented in their timeline every second of every day on Facebook: someone is getting married, having a baby, graduating from college, or mourning the death of a family member. You know instantly what’s happening in your clients’ lives and you can react. There is money in motion—can you say “opportunity goldmine?”
