Brandon Stuerke is a visionary in the financial services industry and the creator of Automated Advisor, the modern marketing solution revolutionizing the marketing process for financial advisors. A successful author, sought-after speaker and top-tier advisor, Brandon knows what it takes to dramatically grow an advisory practice.
Brandon got his start in the financial services industry in 2000 when he worked for a property and casualty firm before taking a position with MetLife, where he learned the mechanics of the financial services profession. In early 2006 he started his own firm, Golden Financial Group, LLC, to bring comprehensive financial services to pre-retirees and retirees in his home state of Missouri. As an independent advisor with great drive and tenacity to graow his firm, Brandon quickly became frustrated with the lack of results that standard marketing practices yielded, and began experimenting with innovative strategies that brought him unprecedented success.

After experiencing first hand the growth that could be achieved through these cutting-edge strategies, Brandon decided to share his new approaches with his fellow advisors. The first marketing program he developed, Winning With CPAs, set a new industry standard for center-of-influence referral marketing. Brandon then decided to tackle the Achilles’ heel of the average financial advisor: digital marketing. Through Automated Advisor, Brandon has revolutionized lead generation, lead nurturing, content marketing and more, giving the average advisor access to a state-of-the-art turnkey program that combines the industry’s best practices into one headache-free, time-saving business tool.
