Market Knowledge more of commodity today than it was 20 years ago.

Author JasonJohnson , 9/12/2013
How many trade publications does your agency subscribe too?  If you’re like my office you probably have a couple industry journals for your agents to read and a few non-industry magazines for the customers in the lobby.  For most of us the internet is our main source for content, training, and to stay in touch with changes within the industry.  We follow forums that are specific to our interests and our area of expertise.  But as access to this information becomes more available via email, internet or traditional format does the value we put on our market knowledge decrease?  I can Google a specific product type and in a few hours have at least a working knowledge of what I am talking about.  So is our market knowledge just a commodity purchased with our time but easily recreated by our competitors?  What will help to maintain our competitive advantage in the industry?  Will it be speed, price, or access to better information?  And where can I get all of those tools in one location?  Fortunately one website does offer all of this and more.  

CompleteMarkets provides its agents the ability to search markets, connect and exchange ideas with peers, view premium content from professional consultants and experts within our industry and more.
Search engines provide an agent with suggestions or lead you towards the place you are searching for but they lack the ability to connect you with the correct person or product you want immediately. (at least for now)  By logging into CompleteMarkets you can perform the same search, let’s say for a wholesaler who provides coverages for a Taxicab company, and have the same results as the search engine but in addition you will be able, with just a click of the mouse, to have a quote form instantly populate with your information and get quotes from several competing providers working to get YOUR business.

CompleteMarkets also offers you the opportunity to connect with your peers for idea exchanges, discussions on changes to your industry, or read up on a subject that interests you from our vast online library.  The value to you is that all these products and services are included with your membership for free.  Convenient, affordable, and efficient are just a few ways to describe the benefits of joining CompleteMarkets.

By joining today you will have access to everything mentioned above and membership is completely free for agents. To ensure you are in the loop on all CompleteMarkets news and updates subscribe to our blog today.


Riots, and Pirates, and Mayors, Oh My.

Author JasonJohnson , 8/21/2013
Riots in Egypt, Pirates in Somalia, and city officials in San Diego all with unusual risks that need underwriting.  Although this is less than 1% of the industry that needs to be shopping for insurance, it does raise the question, “Where do you go to find your clients hard to find coverages?”

A recent headline from www.businessinsurance.com titled “Egypt: Authorities in talks over expanding insurance cover against riots” discusses the role of insurance carriers insuring in an area struck by recent political instability and riots.  The article points out that only 3% of those affected are covered for this type of loss.  Maritime organizations have also felt the pressure of piracy on the high seas.  Most carry tradition cargo insurance but now what about hostage insurance?  And finally, the beleaguered mayor from San Diego. Bob Filner.  For the 18th time an accuser has spoken out against the mayor’s alleged harassment while still in office.  Many companies have a policy for sexual harassment but how many carry insurance for it?

As the agent, you have to be prepared for any type of risk that your clients may need.  From your day to day policy to the unique.  CompleteMarkets has for years been known as the leading source for niche insurance carriers.  Today, CompleteMarkets is so much more than that.  It is still the leading internet site for niche insurance, but now you can also search our extensive library of premium content, connect with peers, and market your agency’s specialized business lines.
