Insurance Agency Telemarketing Provides Viable Support for Insurance Agency Web Marketing Intitiatives
Insurance agency telemarketing can, if use properly, provide viable support for insurance agency web marketing intitiatives. Although insurance agency telemarketing is still a form of interruption makreting, it can be effective when properly approached and applied to a specific target profile. Let’s say for example, an insurance agency focuses on benefits, and the agency is targeting medium sized business in California. Further refining this hypothetical profile, we could say there are 7,000 businesses the agency wishes to target, between 50 employees and 500 employees.
Perhaps this agent has implemented an insurance agency web marketing initiative, inviting these 7,000 business to a web seminar on PPACA, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Out of the 7,000 email invitations, 150 businesses register for the webinar and 100 attend. What is the next step for this insurance agency? Obviously every one of these attendees and registrants should receive a personalized phone call, following up on the webinar, and further gauging interest. This is hard for many agents to do, particularly when they are busy with presentations, renewals and client engagements. Add to this list of 150 prospects something we call multiple opens (an insurance agency eMarketing term) and there could be 250 or more followup calls for every webinar.
For many insurance agencies, the obvious answer is an insurance experienced telemarketer, though this might be better described as an appointment setter. There are two choices in this case, hire one internally, or outsource to an insurance marketing agency. In either case, the insurance agency stands a much better chance of optimizing appointment opportunities by supplementing their producers pipeline with a well chosen appointment setter. This combination of insurance agency marketing elements results in a highly potent mix of eMarketing, web seminar marketing and insurance agency telemarketing. Together, this will result in more opportunities, and with a well rehearsed presentation, a higher insurance agency pipeline yield.

Dependability Metrics: GI-Dagstuhl Research Seminar, Dagstuhl Castle, Germany, October 5 – November 1, 2005, Advanced Lectures (Lecture Notes in … / Programming and Software Engineering)
Dependability Metrics: GI-Dagstuhl Research Seminar, Dagstuhl Castle, Germany, October 5 - November 1, 2005, Advanced Lectures (Lecture Notes in ... / Programming and Software Engineering)With the growing ubiquity of computing systems, it is essential that we can rely on the services they deliver. Justifying reliance in computer systems requires scientific techniques to derive evidence from given systems or predict such evidence. This tutorial book gives an overview of the current state of the art in measuring the different aspects of dependability of systems: reliability, security and performance. The main impulse for this dependability metrics project resulted from a research seminar, held at Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany, in October/November 2005. The 25 chapters, based on the outcome of the research seminar, are organized in five parts on foundations, reliability metrics, security metrics, performance metrics, and overlapping metrics. The final part shows that only a combined consideration of important dependability attributes will lead to the design objective: the development of systems we can really trust.
Although Dreamweaver, GoLive, Photoshop, and other applications are mentioned (Flash even gets its own chapter), the book covers the gamut of Web design and technology issues rather than focusing on an individual application.
Each chapter is divided into sections, often no more than a couple of pages long. The chapter on backgrounds, the area of a Web page that seems to attract the worst design crimes, shows you how to avoid "the heartbreak of bad background design" in no less than eight sections.
In many books this subject would be lucky to get eight paragraphs; Robin Williams Web Design Workshop uses a clear two-column layout and plenty of real-life example screen shots to get the message across. Some pages consist only of captioned screen shots providing a great source of visual ideas.
There's a good balance between purely design-related issues and the technical stuff. Subjects like search engines, embedded fonts, DHTML, and forms are given a thorough overview, highlighting the main issues, and links to sources of more in-depth information are often to be found at the end of the chapter.
If you like to learn by example and see yourself more as a designer than a programmer, but want a working knowledge of current Web technologies from a book that you can read away from your computer, this is it. --Ken McMahon, amazon.co.uk
The RHUB 4-in-1 Web Conferencing Appliance provides businesses with a secure solution for Web conferencing, Remote Desktop Support, remote access to my computers and Web seminars. An audio conferencing service is also included, free of charge. There is no downloading for webinars. The RHUB 4-in-1 Web Conferencing Appliance supports both Macs and PCs and provides full customized and quick integration with your website and applications. No IT maintenance is required. You own it, you control it.
There are four RHUB Web conferencing appliances to choose from, one just right for your company’s Web conferencing needs. The TM 200 allows for two-four meeting rooms and 10-20 concurrent users; the TM 500 allows for five-20 meeting rooms and 20-100 concurrent users; the TM 800 allows for 25-50 meeting rooms and 100-200 concurrent users and finally the TM 1000 allows for 50-200 meeting rooms and 200-2000 concurrent users.
A meeting room is an active meeting session and the number of meeting rooms is the maximum number of concurrent meetings that can be hosted at one time.
A user is the meeting host or an attendee. When the meeting host begins the meeting or an attendee joins a meeting already in progress, it consumes one user license.
If an individual uses the TM 200 for remote access, they could start a remote access meeting on up to nine different computers. The one remaining computer/license is needed for the individual hosting and to remotely access one of those nine computers at any time. Another option would be to remotely start a meeting on seven different computers and reserve to user licenses for other meeting types such as an Interactive Meeting or a Remote Session.
RHUB (Real-Time Collaboration HUB) is the first solution ever to deliver four complete collaboration technologies in one appliance – allowing customers to not only do web conferencing, but to also conduct webinars, deliver remote support to clients, and to have remote access to personal PC capability – all with one box.
