Ways To Make Insurance And Marketing Work Together

Let’s say you are a newbie in the marketing world and you seems lost with all of the things that you needed to accomplish on a daily basis. Let’s just start with the basic things. What is marketing to begin with? In the terms commonly used by entrepreneurs around the world, the word marketing refers to the form of communication between you and your potential buyers of the products which your company is selling. The main purpose of the said communication is to first and foremost, sell your products. Devising a good and doable marketing plan is one way to form a strategy that will help your company to be able to reach more potential new clients and eventually, convince them to buy the products that you are offering. You see, there are many methods which marketing professionals can employ nowadays to enable them reach a higher number of successful sales but you have to keep in mind that not every marketing strategy can work on any given situation especially when we are talking about insurance and marketing altogether. You see, insurance policies are indeed among the things that are extremely difficult to sell no matter how hard you try because insurances require one to pay big amount of ash on premiums monthly.

 

While selling insurances isn’t as simple as we wish it is, there are many ways in which we can make insurance and marketing work together to be able to generate more insurance sales and below are some of them:

  • One of the most important ways to begin marketing insurances is by determining your target audience. You don’t just sell anything for that matter without knowing and fully understanding for whom you are selling those products. You must be able to understand the needs and concerns of potential clients when buying insurances so that you can come up with ways to motivate them into buying your products.
  • Now that you’ve known your target audience, time to create your marketing plan for you and your team to be able to generate insurance sales. Properly prepare communication methods that you will be using when interacting with potential clients. This specific way also involves employing a combination of activities which include both traditional and new media.

Homeless Wellington City Council’s Civic Building To Remain Closed

A sad truth has come to light in Wellington City recently, with the City Council remaining homeless due to the civic building suffering damage from the Kaikoura earthquake. The city council has more to worry about seeking office furniture in NZ, as the damage is bad enough that the only option is either repair or demolishing.

The six-storey civic administration building or CAB, was built sometime early 1990s, and has been in use since that time until the earthquake happened. The Wellington City Council was, thankfully, able to move and remain in operation in the next door municipal office building. The issue then, is that they have to move out by next year.

According to the Council’s Chief Executive, Kevin Lavery, the decision on whether or not to demolish the CAB was not up for them to decide, but that it was up to the investors. He added that if they were to move back in, it would take quite a bit of time, which will no doubt be inconvenient for them, and for the public of Wellington City. He elaborates, saying that it would take at least another 2 or 3 years for the CAB to be usable and safe.

He states that they have already lodged an earthquake claim with their insurers, but there’s a considerable process to work through be the plans for the building would be agreed on.

Some of the staff from the City Council, who aren’t part of the MOB are currently working in the top floors in the Central Library. The MOB, then, will be part of the new $187M Town Hall music hub project, which is set to have the NZ Symphony Orchestra and Victoria University move in sometime near early 2019.

Lavery has added that the council definitely needs to find some accommodation for the City Council for the next couple of years, and are already looking at possible option. On the side of the public, there have already been some complaints with regards to how much the taxpayers would have to pay to cover all these costs, including paying for the office furniture in NZ, as well as the associated costs with the temporary accommodation. Whilst there is some issue, hopefully, the end result is something that is reasonable for the government and the public.

Amidst A Field Of Roses

Home decorations can be a bit of a pain. Everyone loves working on their house; trying to make it look as good and unique as they can possibly make it. On my end, I’ve been looking around for a good canvas print to put in my house. I’ve always been the anxious type of person; always finding some insignificant bit of minutiae to fuss over. Wisely, I’ve been looking for something relaxing to gaze into whenever the whim struck me.

I’ve found a few that were quite nice, but something bugged me a bit. The prints were beautiful, make no mistake, but something inside me instinctively refused them. I wasn’t sure what the issue was, but I knew I could not simply choose ignoring this feeling. Home, after all, is where the heart is, and if my heart felt off, then it wouldn’t work. So I decided to search for an image to use in my canvas print.
That particular endeavor didn’t take long, fortunately, I knew what I was looking for. I found this picture of a field of purple flowers bathed in sunset light. I’m not entirely sure what flowers they are specifically, all I know is that I’ve always found purple flowers appealing. I’m particularly fond of orchid and lavender.

Admittedly, this image didn’t look all that different from the many canvas prints you could go and find in a shop or online. Honestly, it made me wonder why I went through all that effort to go and look for the damn thing. Anyway, I shrugged, acknowledging the fact that it was my decision.

That’s when it hit me.

This photo I found, was my choice. It was going to hang in my house.

See, that’s the important thing. When deciding something for your home, it has to be your decision. People can suggest something, but it ultimately comes down to you. If you share a house with your family, then they can contribute, but I digress. The point is, when you decorate your home, when you alter it, it has to be your choice; it is your house, after all.
