About Wired Advisor

Stephanie Sammons, the Wired Advisor

Welcome! I’m Stephanie Sammons, the creator of Wired Advisor™.

I help financial professionals (Financial Advisors, Financial Planners, Investment Advisors, CPAs) build personal digital influence to attract, grow, and retain ideal client relationships in a wired world.

Over the past five years I’ve worked with over 100 financial professionals to help them develop a digital strategy and modern marketing system for growing their personal digital influence.

I’ve also consulted with financial institutions, firms that support financial professionals, and modern financial start-ups on digital and social media influence strategy.

Prior to launching Wired Advisor™ in 2010, I spent 15 years as a financial advisor in addition to serving in leadership roles at Merrill Lynch and UBS. I continue to hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.

This year LinkedIn named me as a “Top 25 Social Media Expert You Must Know” and adSpringer listed me as a “Top 100 Digital Marketing Expert”. I’ve also been named a Top 5 financial industry blogger by RIABiz.

I’ve spoken at top digital marketing and social media conferences including New Media Expo, Social Media Marketing World, FinCon, Agents of Change, Podcast Movement, and have been featured in the following media publications:

Wall Street Journal, Forbes, WealthManagement, Investment News, Journal of Financial Planning, Financial Planning Magazine, Registered Rep, ThinkAdvisor, Social Media Examiner, Social Media Today, Dallas Morning News, and Entrepreneur on Fire.

The Wired Advisor Method™

The Wired Advisor Method™ encompasses my unique approach for helping financial professionals understand and leverage their personal digital influence to win and keep clients in a wired world.

Personal digital influence isn’t something you achieve overnight, nor it is a one-time transaction. Building personal digital influence is an ongoing process for growing your business equity. It’s driven by who you are, what you believe, who you help, and how you help.

Personal digital influence is the uncanny ability to attract, lead, and inspire your ideal clients to take action.

With all else remaining equal – your product, price, and performance – it’s your ability to create an ongoing personalized digital connection with your existing and ideal clients that will ultimately attract them to you, inspire them to work with you, and encourage them to stay with you.

Building personal digital influence with your ideal clients is the key to creating both long-term leverage and scale for your business in the digital age.

A Few Personal “Fun” Facts About Me:

If I’m asking you to build your personal digital brand, it’s important for me to share with you more about who I am!

First, my closest friends, colleagues, and coaches describe me as the following (in no particular order): smart, caring, driven, sweet, funny, fierce, creative, enthusiastic, sensitive, competitive, practical, optimistic

I guess they are being nice to not share the things about me that drive them crazy! :)

Here are some additional tidbits about me that you may not know:

  • I grew up in Plano, Texas and graduated in the top 10% of my class of 1500 students. I was an All-District point guard, honors student, and the high school mascot (I wore a wildcat suit and acted crazy at football games!)
  • I played college basketball (5’4″ Point Guard, Division I and II) and was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority at the University of Oklahoma (Go Sooners!)
  • My college degree is a BBA in Economics and I’ve completed about 3/4 of an MBA (frankly, entrepreneurship was more exciting!)
  • I was a high school business/economics teacher my first two years out of college
  • I’m a stepmom to two awesome and handsome boys! (ages 11 and 14)
  • I’m a singer-songwriter, recording musician, and acoustic guitar player (Gibson Hummingbird and custom Baxendale guitars)
  • I practice yoga (mostly hot) 5-6 days a week and can do most arm-balancing poses, headstand, and even hold a handstand on a good day!
  • I LOVE the Dallas Cowboys and love to wear cowgirl boots!
  • I enjoy cooking – especially on our outdoor grill
  • I have a Chihuahua named Sugar Bear and an Australian Shepherd mix (rescue dog) named Sadie (Sugar Bear is in charge)
