November is a great time to reach out to your insurance clients before the holiday year-end crunch gets too busy. The highlight holiday of the month, Thanksgiving, is generally a family time – and a good time to thank your customers and find ways to let them know that they are appreciated. Don’t forget to reach out to your neighboring businesses – build up to Small Business Saturday at the end of the month by encouraging and supporting local business.
November is also a good time to remind people about flu shots and winterizing home, businesses and vehicles. Offer tips about security and ID-theft prevention for both online and in store shopping. Remind commercial and personal clients alike to begin preparation for end-of-year/new year financial planning and insurance policy coverage reviews.
We’re offering key November dates and links to resources that could be helpful to start a dialogue about insurance coverage on your blogs and social media accounts.
