Periodically, I'll review my area's individual ML/SB broker websites, just to check-out the competition. From what I understand, these brokers pay a fee to the B/D to have their own web page within the B/D site.


Well, some of these brokers aren't proofreading their own websites. I found numerous glaring errors on several of these sites. And I'm not just talking about typo's. (Although, there were plenty of them.) On one site, the broker had listed two different job titles: he's an Assistant VP and further down, he's a VP.


On another website, a broker from Connecticut, is listed in an office for South Georgia. It lists the broker as one of the employees of the office, but gives her Connecticut office address, Connecticut phone number, and the numerous civic organizations she belongs to in CONNECTICUT!


How much does your B/D charge y'all to list your individual websites?

It's a good point, although I wonder how often clients really read these things.


I've seen spelling errors in seminar listings as well.  Not too impressive.

I think it is quite valuable to search for ways to develop new cleints,
enrich the experience your existing clients' experience, and grow
yourself.  Editing websights is not in that menu.  Sorry.



My point is one that I have made many times.  The errors and
moronic behaviors of others in the industry only lend credit to those
of us who do it Right. 



So, quietly smile at these examples of un-professionalism and don't make a big deal of them, they help the rest of us.
