Annuity.com Announces the Creation of Syndicated Columnists to bring together local publications and local Advisors. Our belief is “Local Content is Good Business” Bill Broich
Syndicated Columnists are local community-based writers who provide locally-based articles rather than accumulating and publishing news from a “huge” national news aggregator. We believe that the local reader wants to read the information provided by local experts in their community. We also believe in the complete transparency of money topics.
Over the years, local contributors have replaced this approach by generalists providing information for the local market from a central news hub often located far from the actual newspaper’s location; our goal is to reverse that trend and to use our unique and novel system of Share and Pool, we can provide solid articles regarding financial information.
Our editorial philosophy centers on transparency about financial and economic issues by providing newsreaders with tangible information they can turn into action to help improve their lives. Syndicated Columnists provide high-quality columns about popular financial issues for newspapers, magazines, and websites. Local financial planning experts write these columns of approximately 600 words in AP Style, serving the same communities that the publications cover. These columns are offered without charge to allow our authors to connect with the community readership.
Syndicated Columnists was created by Annuity.com in 2020 as an incubation project conceived with the foundation that local Advisors would be the best content source for local publications. The result has been significant with numerous Advisors seeing the marketing potential and the need for local content.
“Serving the Advisors local market with a completely different new source provides publications with a local slant. That slant allows the Advisor to provide content that will be more meaningful to their local area.” Bill Broich
