This article discusses the use of the Internet as an ally for financial services professionals. There are a number of ways financial advisors can use the Internet. Many companies use the Internet as a way to publicize their services or provide a company directory. In addition, smaller companies or individual planners can list themselves in a financial services directory. For some planners, the answer may be to create their own individual Web page. There are a number of financially focused Web developers who are experts not only in development of high-quality technical Web sites, but often also have the financial background to help planners and advisors build sites that keep pace with changes in the industry.
