Discover our Turnkey 401K Planning System

With our 401K Advantage system, you’ll learn how to efficiently — and profitably — provide DOL-friendly plan level advice to 401k plan sponsors. While many advisors are moving away from this market segment our DOL-friendly system is a huge opportunity for you.

FACT: The 401K advisory market is changing.

Today’s 401K specialists need a repeatable process that assures the highest level of care for plan sponsors while generating new prospects and clients. The less time you spend on marketing, the more time you’ll spend on the reason you got into the business in the first place: To help guide clients to their financial goals while securing your own financial future as a business owner.

Let’s face it…

Asking for referrals probably never makes it on the list of tasks you enjoy as a financial advisor. But what if your practice had a system in place that not only assured the best standard of care for current clients, but also led to prospective clients approaching you — instead of the other way around?

The concept might sound far fetched, but advisors who use the – Practice Management Blueprint-401K’s planning process have discovered it’s true. And once you implement the system into your practice, you, too, will no longer have to resort to “ask-and-beg” or “hope-and-pray” referral marketing.

The reason is simple.

When clients have amazing experiences, they tend to tell people about it. Our system assures that you will deliver such a unique client experience that it will be shared. That’s exactly what you’re going to learn…

A Thorough Process

“My broker-dealer is really good about showing us how to make a sale and how to close a sale, but they don’t do anything for us in the middle. The Practice Management Blueprint really fills that gap, giving us checklists … and monthly calls that really fill in the gaps. That’s what most advisors want – someone to help answer the questions that no one else can answer for us.” ~Garret Harper – Kansas

Sound, Detailed Instructions

” … That’s what makes the CWA Network so influential and has made it possible for them to make a remarkable set of instructions … and processes for other advisors. It gives me a real pleasure just to recommend this to everyone who is going to listen and read what [Practice Management Blueprint] is recommending to the 21st century marketplace.” ~Dan Sullivan – Toronto
