Raymond James Partners With Hearsay Social To Enhance Its Industry-Leading Social Media Activities For Advisors

Hearsay Social provides advisors with the enhanced tools they need to efficiently and successfully leverage social media to increase productivity. The social media sites used by Raymond James advisors and currently supported through Hearsay Social are LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, with Google+ being evaluated for inclusion in the near future. Additionally, Raymond James advisors have access to a vast library of pre-approved content that is both topical and timely, as well as the flexibility to post original content using a seamless process of compliance review and posting.

Many advisors recognize the important role social media plays in helping them learn more about and connect directly with their clients. David Adams, a Raymond James advisor in Nashville, Tenn., who has been piloting the Hearsay Social suite, said that the Hearsay Social platform will aid in identifying "social signals" that clients share on social networks (such as a new job, retirement, marriage, etc.) which will enable him to respond with warm, targeted and timely outreach.

Jeff Blum, a Raymond James advisor in Westlake Village, Calif. and another Hearsay Social pilot user said, "I really like the way the content is presented in this system. It is certainly easy to use. I can post from my cell phone or any device. I particularly appreciate the calendar feature, being able to view and keep track of all my posts, then immediately click into the social media post to see what it looks like. Hearsay Social allows me to create my own posts or choose from a vast library of pre-approved content. I know I am going to continue to utilize these new features."

"We consider our firm fairly active with social media and I have really enjoyed the flexibility and ease of use of the Hearsay Social platform," said Amanda Piper, a Raymond James financial advisor with Wagner-Lee, LLC in Columbia, MD. "We use both the compliance-approved content as well as our own original posts. The simplicity of posting to all our social networks, monitoring the engagement, and having the ability to respond to it has been great." 

"Tens of thousands of relationship managers use Hearsay Social daily to hear and respond to everything their customers and prospects are saying on social networks" said Clara Shih, CEO of Hearsay Social. "We are excited to add Raymond James advisors to this list and I am confident that this initiative will help maintain the superior client-first service that they are known for."
