GK3 Capital: 4 Keys to Fundraising Success

1. Uniting Financial Expertise with Digital Mastery: 

At GK3, we speak two languages: digital and distribution.

We know of no digital agency that understands sales and marketing for financial services like us. We know of no other consulting firm serving asset managers and wealth managers that understands and implements digital strategies the way we do. That’s what makes us different.

At GK3 Capital, our team is fluent in digital strategies as well as financial services. Our dual expertise means we understand the nuances of distribution, markets, investor behavior, compliance, and the online landscape. We combine long experience and deep expertise in finance and all things digital.

We pursue excellence across the spectrum of digital technologies, strategies, and techniques:

35715 GK3 blog graphic 3-2We’ve learned firsthand how to raise capital across the major distribution channels:

35715 GK3 blog graphic 4For 7 years, we have partnered with asset managers, wealth managers, fintech firms, and TAMPs seeking to master digital distribution. Our clients collectively manage tens of billions of dollars and raise billions more each year. We continually refine our process as we help our clients compete and grow amidst accelerating change.

2. Blueprint for Success: Digital Distribution™:

Our blueprint is more than a strategy; it's the bedrock upon which we have supported our clients in raising impressive capital. This process, honed over years of experience, provides a structure that is both adaptable to each client's unique needs and sturdy enough to support ambitious fundraising goals. By analyzing past successes (and challenges) and steadily enhancing our approach, we offer our clients a roadmap that is both visionary and pragmatic, designed for results.

Buyer behavior has changed. 

Today, relationships begin on the other side of a Google search, a website visit, or a social media post. Your future clients are most of the way through the buying process before they ever talk to someone from your firm. Have you changed your approach to sales and marketing for this new dynamic?

Our process is a transformational response to how buyer behavior has changed in our digital era. Knowing that you need to change, too, may be even more important. Digital Distribution by GK3 Capital is the answer to that change. Digital Distribution will help you raise capital more effectively, more efficiently, and more profitably.

3 Pillars

Digital Distribution™ stands upon three fundamental pillars: process, technology, and people.

  1. First, the process. It’s called Inbound. Inbound is a sales and marketing strategy that is aligned with how people make decisions today. Inbound is about developing rich relationships with your potential clients online and attracting them with digital engagement.
  2. Second, the technology, which we call your Digital Wholesaling Platform.  This technology enables you to exponentially increase your productivity and reach the right people at the right time with the right message. 
  3. Third, with a new process and new technology, you will need the right people who can help execute and implement digital distribution, your Digital Distribution Team.

Digital Distribution is a systematic, scalable solution and the future model for fundraising in the asset management industry. Digital Distribution aligns with how advisors and investors make buying decisions in the digital era. Digital Distribution represents digital transformation for asset managers.

Ultimately, Digital Distribution heightens the effectiveness of marketing teams, enables sales professionals to focus on their most important activities and prospects, and magnifies the ROI of your sales and marketing investment.

GK3 Capital is here to help you succeed in digital distribution.

3. Content Craftsmanship: Essential for Engagement: 

Content is not just king—it's the kingdom. In today’s digital world, content is often the first contact investors have with your firm.

Art and Science

In the digital arena, content reigns supreme. At GK3 Capital, we view content creation as both art and science. We meticulously craft each piece to resonate with what makes your investment strategy, brand, and audience unique. Customization is key. We strive to hone each message for the audience it intends to captivate. The science comes from combining data and analytics with the time-tested principles of what makes content effective.

Content must succeed across 3 key dimensions:

1. Effective content answers key questions for your potential clients and illustrates how you are the trusted leader in your field.
2. Custom content highlights your unique value and generates leads for your marketing and sales teams.
3. Great content inspires action, converts newcomers into clients, and can turbocharge your fundraising.

At GK3, our content strategy intertwines data-driven analysis with creativity. We base our approach on time-honored principles, ensuring that engagement is at the heart of every piece. For example:

1. The title of this blog is derived from quantitative analysis aimed at maximizing reader engagement.

2. The structure of the blog is designed for skimming (the way most of us digest online content) with subheads, tables, lists, and graphics.

3. We tilt the language of this blog to short sentences and paragraphs and away from jargon—critical to holding reader interest.

The Power and Discipline of the Content Calendar

We not only tailor content to each client's strategy but also plan its delivery with precision. We build a content plan and calendar to maximize results. Cadence and discipline is key. Content must regularly reach your audience to maintain engagement —or someone else will. 35715 GK3 blog graphic 6To optimize results, we continuously measure the success of your content based on levels of engagement from your key potential investors. This feedback drives continuous improvement.

Superior content doesn't just reach out; it brings prospects in. Quality content fosters efficiencies across your marketing and client-facing teams by underscoring your message and demonstrating your value continuously.

4. Save Time and Money With GK3:

Our strategies are not only designed to be impactful—they're also cost-effective. GK3 Capital can save you months, years, and even millions when building or expanding internal teams and systems, while elevating quality and results. By leveraging our expertise, clients enjoy a competitive edge, maximize their resources, and accelerate their path to fundraising success.

Maximize Value, Minimize Expense

GK3 Capital’s approach to digital transformation marries cost-effectiveness with impact. Our approach translates to a significant return on investment, both in the short and long term, ensuring our clients' resources are deployed wisely. This strategic choice also accelerates fundraising efforts.

Invest in Digital Efficiency

For asset managers, the transition to digital is essential, but concerns about committing time, staff, and financial resources are paramount. How many asset managers embark on digital transformation only to be bogged down by systems that are too complex to use, don’t work for their teams, or create unexpected expense.?

GK3's digital transformation services are designed to be economical and to enhance your efficiency. You can partner with GK3 for less than the cost of a single external wholesaler. Our services are designed to elevate (not replace) your existing sales and marketing teams, increasing income for both your company and your people.

Our experienced team enables asset managers to embrace the digital age without the burden of excessive costs or the steep learning curves often associated with internal development.

Choose the Right Path: In-House or Outsourcing

When deciding between developing an in-house digital distribution team or outsourcing, the scale and expertise required make GK3 an attractive option. Large firms may have the resources to build internally, but for many, the efficiencies of outsourcing outweigh the investment in time and money. For boutiques, outsourcing through GK3 enables smaller firm to “punch above their weight” and operate with the scale and power of larger competitors.

GK3’s tailored programs leverage your firm's unique strengths, ensuring digital strategies align with your preferences and industry trends.

Effective Resource Allocation

Investing in a robust digital presence should not be a drain on resources. GK3’s services and strategies are optimized to enhance your team's productivity and expand your reach without the traditional overhead. Our track record shows that we can implement comprehensive digital transformation at a fraction of the cost.
