Attitude to Risk Questionnaire
1st November 2021
Is this something that could save you valuable time? We know how busy our financial advisers are
We are excited to be working on an attitude to risk questionnaire (15 questions in total). A client asked for it to help his clients understand their attitude to risk. It saves him doing it manally and having to calculate the score!
There was no charge for this service, since we feel it's a development that can benefit our other directly authorised clients.

Check out our New Mortgage Website Designs!
Mortgage Advisers have always been informed that we are able to adapt any of our IFA Website Designs and we even have our own Mortgage and Stamp Duty Calculators, but we thought it was high time we crafted something just for them.
It's an exciting step in our journey to showcase some stunning designs for Morgage Advisers, we hope you agree.
Our Mortgage websites cost £385 with a monthly fee of £30, what's more there are no charges for the first 2 months.

We're quite unique in that we deliver a cost effective yet professional website offering a degree of individuality. It isn't out of a box, yet the price is reflective of a templated site
That's right, the price of a templated website, the focus on you, your services and how you want to be marketed. Kind of in between a templated site and a customised site. It just makes thing that little more personal and engaging.

With GDPR (Data Protection 2018) Secure certificates (SSL) are needed if you're using an online enquiry form.
Security has always been a priority for Google and we know that it is starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal. But it doesn't stop there, if your website is using an online form, then it needs to have an SSL certificate.

Advisers need to communicate regularly with their clients. An annual meeting allows too much time for a client to investigate other options and not enough opportunities for you to build on a relationship.

With the online world of websites it's hard for prospective clients to connect with you. That's why personal photos and testimonials are so important. They help to build trust.
The web is an anonymous place, but everyone wants to attach a face to a name. Why not add staff photos, underneath each photo a detailed bio. Often a client isn't just purchasing a product or service, they're investing in you.Business Headshots

Branding is about giving your business an identity. It is a concept that extends far beyond the marketing of “brand name”. A company's brand represents their market identity: who they are, what they do and what kind of quality they provide.Branding for IFAs

We reported earlier this year (See article) Google's announcement of using mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal from April 21, 2015.
April 21 is less than a week away and because of the potential impact Google's change could have, the date is now being referenced as “Mobilegeddon”. Google may have announced the update early, but it hasn't been forthcoming until more recently with details.Read More

There are advantages and disadvantages to both website scrolling and clicking. For instance in the case of scrolling it could seem that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Scrolling can be faster than clicking for website users. With modern devices including touch pads that use a 'swiping' action and scrolling mouse does mean that users can scroll through longer pages of content with ease.Read More

Pay attention to quality over quantity and use tracking metrics that matter : visitors, referrals, bounce rate, exit page, conversion rate, top 10 pages ...
Click through does not always mean high engagement, break your content down into chunks and make use of infographics and images. It will have a far bigger impact on your audience.
Use less generic “baits” like: best, top, biggest. Make more use of personal engagement, emotion, views, news....Read More

Our journey started with IFA Systems, they were innovative in being the first to offer IFAs a templated solution in 1999.
In May 2012 IFA Web Pro was formed after the acquisition from PracticeWEB didn't go as planned. We were excited to be able to retain key personnel from IFA Systems who were very much part of their website development team.
This has meant that IFA Web Pro have been able to carry on leading the IFA website market by making further innovations. We started where IFA Systems left off; now offering a more customised approach to the website templated solution.Read More
