About COLLEGE FUNDING EVOLUTION
College Funding Evolution was founded as a turn-key urgency based marketing system designed to meet the needs of advisors looking to re-invigorate and/or jumpstart their careers in financial services.
The old “cookie-cutter” seminars, expensive steak dinners, and product based approach is dying if not dead. John has built College Funding Evolution to meet the immediate needs of advisors looking to truly make a meaningful, tangible, positive impact in their clients lives while minimizing client acquisition costs. Marketing can be expensive and suffocating to a business if it is inefficient. College Funding Evolution has solved that problem. Older “social security” and “retirement” prospects will gladly eat an advisors meal and consume lots and lots of time only to “think about” moving forward. College Funding Evolution has a built in urgency that prospects breathe and feel. Our advisors don’t have to push clients into action. College Funding Evolution prospects are bringing their entire financial lives into the first and second meeting without having to convince them to. College Funding Evolution was built for agents by agents.
