ORMOND BEACH, Fla., Sept. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Snappy Kraken, a MarTech company focused on helping financial professionals automate their marketing and business processes, was selected as a winner of the WealthManagement.com 2018 Industry Awards, the only awards program of its kind to honor outstanding achievements by companies and organizations that support financial advisor success. The awards were announced last night at a black-tie gala event at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City. The winners were selected by a panel of independent judges made up of top names in the industry.
"We are humbled to receive the award in our first year of nomination," said Robert Sofia, Snappy Kraken CEO and co-founder. "The Snappy Kraken team has done an exceptional job of developing technology and creating high-quality visual products that will benefit advisers in all stages of their client communication and marketing goals. We are pleased to be recognized for our efforts in 2018, but in reality, we've only just begun to show what we can do. Stay tuned for more exciting developments as we look toward the end of 2018 and round the corner to 2019."
A judging panel of industry luminaries selected Snappy Kraken as the winner in the category of "Social Media Leadership" (Technology Providers) for their dedication to developing visually stunning content, affordable digital marketing campaigns and professional video production services for financial advisers.
"We've received an incredible response from the industry to our 'Seminar Freedom' program, which automates adviser marketing to capture leads, boosts attendance at virtual seminars and converts cold leads into hot prospects without taking up any more of the adviser's time," Sofia said. "We are committed to creating and developing additional dynamic, marketing products in the new year, bringing marketing automation and fresh concepts to help advisers streamline workflows and fill their client pipeline. It is a true honor to be recognized by WealthManagement.com as a leader in our field."
