What is the Edward Jones policy/stance on social media and advertising? Is it really restrictive? Seems like reps want to use it, but are limited on what they can do.

Jones is always the most restrictive. Lots of green advisors that make the rules unfavorable for their experienced ones.

I’m with LPL and we can make our own posts without having compliance approved first. We use a social media monitoring service that allows us to do it.

You just have to follow some guidelines.

Gotcha. I’m sure that is better for client relationship building. I need to post more of that kind of content, so people know we have personalities outside of work and to tell a better story. I think the original thread was talking about real custom marketing on social media to generate interest/leads. I don’t think Jones allows that and it’s a shame because it really works.

Very limited. Everything is pre made or needs to be administrative in nature. I understand why it is that way but I’d say it limits us to 60% of the pie available

Can you all write your own posts without them being approved first?

My wife and I are considering relocating to a new city. I’ve been working with a recruiter who (I thought) gave me a good lay of the land. Which firms to meet with re lateral opportunities, which to avoid, etc. I’ve since spoken with a friend who has connections at other firms that could be a better fit. Do I bring in my recruiter or reach out through connections? Is using a recruiter beneficial to me, or am I better off on my own? How does their fee play in to what I could get as a package?

Everyone has a different perspective on this but would love to hear yours. Someone has debt ranging say 4-5% interest rates. Do you attack debt more then investing to move towards a debt free life or do you go after investments since they return historically above that then paying down closer towards retirement. I know the latter looks better on paper but what about the psychological factors of being debt free and the guaranteed return on interest savings.
