BOSTON AND CHICAGO - 05/23/2019 (PRDistribution.com)
Thanks to a strategic partnership between digital marketing leader Advisorist and entrepreneur Kevin Harrington—one of the original sharks on Shark Tank—financial professionals can now benefit from the inspirational and proven sales and relationship-building techniques of Zig Ziglar.
On Monday, Kevin Harrington and Advisorist launch their strategic partnership to bring the best-in-class practices of Zig Ziglar and Kevin Harrington to the members of Advisorist. The financial advisors and insurance agents who comprise the Advisorist membership will be able to access components of Secrets of Closing the Sale Masterclass online.
Harrington worked with the Ziglar family to digitize Zig Ziglar’s teachings and present them through an on-demand platform. The result—Secrets of Closing the Sale Masterclass—presents the inspiration and proven sales practices of Ziglar as seen through the lens of the world-class entrepreneur Kevin Harrington.
“I believe Zig would have approved of our strategic partnership with Advisorist,” says Kevin Harrington. “He wanted to help people achieve their full potential…and then some. Now in being able to reach financial professionals with this program, it’s like Zig being able to help agents and advisors better reach out and help their client base secure their retirement and achieve financial freedom.”
Even as the economy continues to rebound and many Americans recover from the Great Recession, concerns about being prepared for retirement persist. According to Gallup, almost half of non-retired Americans (especially those 30 and older) still worry that they will not have enough savings to secure their retirement. These are the people financial professionals need to reach—and now.
“Our strategic partnership with Kevin Harrington makes so much sense,” says Jeremiah Desmarais, founder and CEO of Advisorist. “Our members are professionals, trained to help people build and protect their wealth. But to succeed, they also need to be skilled in sales and marketing. We focus on the digital marketing. And when it comes to selling, we can now give our members access to the best. It doesn’t get any more inspiring and practical than Ziglar and Harrington.”
Working together, Advisorist and Kevin Harrington can help financial advisors and insurance agents use online and offline resources to connect with, engage and build meaningful relationships with the people who need financial guidance.
“Whether it’s too much debt or not enough savings that’s derailing people’s financial security, our job is to give financial professionals all the tools they need to reach out to people and make a difference,” says Desmarais. Harrington concurs: “Advisorist attracts the top agents and advisors in the industry. With Secrets of Closing the Sale, the best will become even better.”
