ReyInsurance Linda Rey
@BrownstoneInsur well, we never insure 2 purchase price if that's what you mean. we calcuate RC & then put 150% RC to cov A #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey
@BrownstoneSteph yes, we put 150% RC on dwelling limit (cov A) and some carriers have unlimited or 20%. #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe
Lucky you don't have that problem! lol RT @ReyInsurance Q5 i've never had that happen i have to say... #brokerchat

BrownstoneSteph Stephanie Adams
Q5 What we do is put 100% RC up to the bldg limit and it usually will appease the bank #brokerchat

So glad you brought up co-op advertising, @ReyInsurance. Not many businesses even know about it, but we want unique ideas too! #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey 
Q3 collaboration, interest in our biz, marketing savvy, not afraid of new marketing ideas (last tweet lacked punctuation) #brokerchat

ease in conferring for underwriting queries. check in with product updates. "if you build it, they will come". #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey 
Q3 collaboration interest in our biz marketing savvy.not afraid of new marketing ideas.so over print ads as only co-op consid #brokerchat

BrownstoneSteph Stephanie Adams

themontyminute Glenn W Montgomery

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe

@reyinsurance drop your tweet levels to under 200 per day and you will have a little more time! ;-) #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey 
i've been fortunate 2 connect w/some clients who are now friends so we've had mini-networking events. talk about #topofmind! #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey 
@javerlin74 wow! impressive.... hard to not get sucked up in idle telcon when there is a fire burning...haha #brokerchat

themontyminute Glenn W Montgomery 
drop in and see your clients. Find out what has changed in their lives and their business #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe 
On that note, it can be challenging to make insurance "interesting" enough to write whole newsletters on. What works for you? #brokerchat

life_quotes_inc Life Quotes, Inc. 
@ReyInsurance And SM goes such a long way letting people know you're available anytime, for anything. Customers appreciate it! #brokerchat

BrownstoneSteph Stephanie Adams 
Newsletters are great to let customers know what new things are available #brokerchat

javerlin74 Jason Verlinde 
q2 Attempt to make calls/contacts just to check in on whats going on. Constant contact newsletters. #brokerchat

BrownstoneSteph Stephanie Adams 
Many types of insurance are direct bill/service centers. A simple call to client to see if things are going smoothly #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe 
Good thinking @GarryInsurance. I've read about agencies that have "Child Seat Safety Demos" and "Wedding Insurance Expos" too #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey 
Q2 we do extend bday wishes, most of the time. newsletter, tips, we're social media junkies 2 connect w/info. #brokerchat

GarryInsurance Shelby Allen 
Birthday cards & Holiday Greetings are sent out - I think maybe a customer appreciation event would be a good idea too! #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe 
Q2- How do you show your clients you care all throughout the year and not just at renewal time? #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey 
i've gotten clients as a result when someone didn't answer RT @BrownstoneSteph Exactly @ReyInsurace tell client we w/get answer #brokerchat

BrownstoneSteph Stephanie Adams 
Give a personal touch by contacting them for other than insurance related issues such as birthdays, holidays etc #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe
Excellent point @FocalPoint_NJ...that will be the premise of our next question! ; ) #brokerchat

life_quotes_inc Life Quotes, Inc.
Being totally honest/helpful with everyone & not faking it to make a sale. Potential clients can see right through it! #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe
Ties into social media goals @GarryInsurance #brokerchat

FocalPoint_NJ FocalPoint Marketing
Contact clients more often than right before renewal #brokerchat

BrownstoneInsur Beth Lowe
Good point @ReyInsurance. Nothing must be more frustrating to a client than not getting follow-through #brokerchat 

BrownstoneSteph Stephanie Adams
Exactly @ReyInsurace if we don't know the answer to something we will tell the client we will get the answer #brokerchat

GarryInsurance Shelby Allen
Making sure they know that you are there for them, answering questions and showing interest in what they have going on #brokerchat

ReyInsurance Linda Rey
Returning phone calls! not pretending when you don't know & having follow thru when u say "i'll get back 2 u on that" #brokerchat
