People refer for two reasons;
- To be helpful
- To look good
A good brand makes your clients and COIs look great.
A compelling advisor brand positions you as different, better and relevant.

A good brand inspires referrals.
Referrals account for 75-90% of a professional advisor’s revenue.
Mature practices should expect 100 – 400% growth in referrals once they enhance their brand.
