Who are these people?
Advisor Expressions was started in 2005 with the goal of providing personal, unique marketing support to busy financial advisors and logistics professionals. Our President Erika DeBlasi began her marketing career at a logistics broker 20 years ago and then worked in-house managing a creative team for multiple independent broker-dealers. It was clear that a company that could help manage the website, content, emails, social media, and advertising initiatives for these busy professionals would be useful.
Turns out we were right. And it is why many of our clients still use us since the day our doors opened. We are proud to be their outside marketing arm while they focus on running their business.
Erika DeBlasi worked as a marketing executive for multiple independent broker-dealers and was responsible for the marketing, branding, advertising and communication activities for the firms.
