Written by: Amanda Larson As an advisor, you may be considering whether or not you should include your fees on your website . While you may want to explain these costs in-person so you have a chance to explain them, by not including pricing information on your site, prospects could assume they’re much higher than they actually are. By listing these numbers, you’re eliminating the chances of prospects getting spooked before they even talk to you.And while you may be concerned that by listing your fees, you’ll be compared to other advisors, it’s important to note that by not listing your pricing, you may not have a chance to meet with a potential prospect at all. So, you might as well list them so users do not immediately leave your site after coming up with their own potentially false conclusions. Especially if you have a minimum, it’s worthwhile to list your fees to qualify prospects before you offer them a free, initial consultation. Similarly, transparency lets them know that you’re an open, honest communicator who has nothing to hide.Here are four examples of some top converting fees pages that can help give you a better idea of how to showcase your fees on your site so that instead of scaring people away, you invite them in through strategic and transparent messaging.
1. GOLD CANYON FINANCIAL PLANNING
We love Gold Canyon Financial Planning’s fees page

Additionally, before getting into each specific offering, users are informed of the firm’s AUM fee.This table is another great example of being transparent while also providing detailed information in a concise and condensed format so prospects do not get overwhelmed.
