San Diego, CA, Oct. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emerald Connect, the nation's leader in advisor website development and hosting, unveiled its new single-solution for digital marketing: The Digital Advisor Platform. The new platform allows financial advisors to stay connected with clients and prospects with a mobile-responsive website and email marketing program. It also features tools allowing advisors to be found and get referred within the search engine marketing systems on Google, Yahoo!, and Bing.

Emerald's President Paul Peterson said, "To the best of my knowledge, we are the only company in the financial space that provides advisors with a single-solution to being found, getting referred and staying connected - essential ingredients to thriving in our digital world. It's no longer acceptable to merely have a website. Advisors must embrace the online business world."

The new platform boasts an affordable monthly cost structure of $129.99, no setup fees, and unlimited prospecting opportunities for advisors. "To do this type of search engine marketing on their own, advisors would be exposed to an uncapped expense. Each time a person clicks on their name in any of the popular search engines, the advisor would be charged. Emerald's program caps their financial exposure but doesn't limit their opportunity to be found or get referrals. We assume all the risk. Our platform is a no-brainer for advisors looking to play seriously in the online world," Peterson said.

The Digital Advisor Platform also includes Emerald's popular AutoMark program, which allows advisors to automate their marketing efforts to clients and prospects with targeted e-mailed communications, from birthday cards to newsletters.
