MILLION DOLLAR CLUB
Congratulations to our million and multi-million in-force homeowners insurance premium producers who recently received a painting by artist Lori Shocket from People’s Trust Insurance President and CEO George W. Schaeffer.
We truly appreciate the hard work that goes into being one of 2020’s million-dollar agents.
Thanks to Jackie and Jose for being one of our top producers and sharing this pic! Please share your photos with us–we’d love to post them to our site!
HOW-TO VIDEO LIBRARY
Endorsements that broaden protection limits are a simple way to reduce insurance premiums for policyholders. Fire alarm credits, for example, can be added to existing HO3 and Basic Choice policies.
Check out our Alarm Credit Endorsement video from PTI’s how-to video library to understand how to access applications and process requested changes.
WORK FROM HOME TIPS
If you’re working from home, you might be tempted to use your old morning commute time to make calls. Don’t! Save them for the afternoon.
According to CallHippo, the best time to call prospects is between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m., when most people are wrapping up morning tasks before lunch, and between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. when they’re winding down for the day. The worst time to chat is 9 a.m.!
The World Meteorological Organization recycles 21 storm names every six years.
What happens if there are more than 21 named storms in a given year? The Greek alphabet is then used for subsequent storms. The 22nd storm would be Tropical Storm Alpha, and the 23rd would be Tropical Storm Beta.
When storms cause significant death and destruction (like Katrina, Sandy, and Andrew), their names are retired and new names are selected. Here’s to hoping for a more calm 2021 Hurricane season.
