Marketing Can Help You Produce More Business
Traditionally, insurance has been sold on a personal basis. Salespeople developed close relationships. Direct-mail marketing was not "professional".

Today there 6 primary techniques for marketing insurance services -- #1 being used the most often and #6 being used the least often:

1. Cold-calling and Telemarketing
2. Client Referrals
3. Direct-Mail Marketing
4. Advertising
5. Premiums and Specialties
6. Promotion

Cold-calling and Telemarketing: Cold-calling will produce positive results, the price is often higher.

Referrals: Referrals are an excellent way to obtain new customers. It is unlikely that you will be able to build your client base solely on the basis of referrals.

Direct-mail Marketing: Direct mail is strictly a numbers game. It is relatively inexpensive -- when you can select the right audience.

Premiums and Specialties: Specialty items and premiums are useful marketing devices with one of the other promotional methods.

Home-based Employees: 8 Secrets for Success
Even before gas prices started hitting new highs, telecommuting made sense. Benefits for employer and employee are magnified in today’s volatile economy and many business owners across the nation who had not considered it before are considering it now.

Obviously, some positions do not lend themselves to an @home situation, but for those that do, whether an employee works one or five days a week from a home office, benefits can outweigh pitfalls if problems are considered ahead of time.

Three potential stumbling blocks include:
• Distractions: the dog’s barking, there’s a kid selling candy at the door--what’s an employee to do? And how can an employer be certain the job is getting done?
• Diligence (lack of): when the boss isn’t “just down the hall” anymore, what are some ways to encourage conscientiousness and timely completion of work assigned?
• Detachment: Telecommuters often don’t feel part of the team--how does a manager help them stay connected?

Is Goal Setting Holding You Back?
Have you ever set a goal and wondered why you couldn’t accomplish it? You are not the first person to feel this way. In fact, studies show that more than 86 percent of people who set goals fail. And, of those who do succeed, a surprising 30 percent find they are not able to maintain the newly acquired success in the long term. So, why even set goals?

The truth is, the traditional goal-setting method is no longer effective, even though most teachers, books, trainers, coaches and schools are still teaching it. You have no doubt heard this method many times: write it down, set a date, make an action plan, and build the steps backwards from success. Unfortunately, this is NOT the correct formula for success. The world’s top achievers – the best of the best – achieve success by doing things a bit differently.
