How to Consistently Generate Top Quality Recruits

Without Spending a Dime


Most recruiting organizations spend a lot of money on low productivity strategies such as advertising, direct mail, and telemarketing without fully capitalizing on the much more productive recruiting sources that incur zero out-of-pocket costs. During this workshop, managers will identify their most productive recruiting sources and develop a strategy to strengthen those relationships and generate a consistent flow of quality recruits. Recruiters will leave with a clear action plan they can begin to execute immediately.


  • Identify low-cost and highly productive recruiting sources in your market area
  • Develop a strategy and action plan to intensify relationships with your highest potential recruiting sources
  • How to create identification guides so recruiting sources can easily recognize the type of person you are targeting
  • Learn how to make it easy for recruiting sources to provide you many recruits
  • How to establish communication and marketing plans that maintain high visibility with the most effective recruiting sources - at a low cost
  • Learn how to model the behaviors that your advisors can use to consistently generate high quality referrals

"While last year was a tough year for most advisors, for me it was a record year and so much more. While others advisors were playing defense, I doubled my assets. With the strategies and processes you help me put in place, I was able to re-structure my business to protect my clients and rapidly bring on new HNW clients. With your help, I was able to hit all my targets and bonuses. And I was able to reward myself with my ultimate dream come true. A new Shelby Cobra replica with a 500 hp - 428 Cobra jet engine. I feel like a 6 year old on Christmas morning! Thanks for helping make this happen.

P.S. Next I want you to guide me on how to structure my business so I can take off twice as much time. But remember, I also plan to grow my production by another 50%."

Chuck G., Wells Fargo Advisors
