Are you kiddin' me? 19 Million? Words Matter!




 

Keep it Simple...



To give you an idea about how important effective communication is, consider a LIMRA/Maddock Douglas report that found there are 19,000,000 “STUCK” life insurance shoppers in the United States. These are people who see why life insurance is something they should have, but they’re not acting because they’re confused by the language used to describe the products. –


Many don’t understand or misunderstand terms like “accelerated benefits, death benefit, annuity etc”…

Translate "Insurance" into English, e.g.

Accelerated Benefits = "You don't have to die."

Term Life Insurance = "Like renting a home."

Permanent Life Insurance = "Like buying a home."

Annuity = "Savings that grow without being taxed (like a CD is taxed), then providing retirement income for life if you want."

K.I.S.S.

Here We Grow Again!

Today we welcome two high-energy,
high-achievers to The Thompson Agency Team. 


Lindsay Thompson 

Lindsay comes to us with 14 years of Life Insurance and Investment experience. For the past nine years she was a Life Insurance Internal Wholesaler with MetLife and prior to that was a Marketing Specialist with the Hartford Life Insurance Company.

Her focus has been to provide support and solutions to agents who specialize in wealth transfer, business planning and advanced estate tax planning. Over the years she has gained extensive knowledge of the various products, competitive sweet spots, case design, underwriting and marketing strategies.

Lindsay will be supporting Peter, Adam, Brian and Dan in their outside servicing and recruiting activities, as well as fielding your calls, providing case analysis, case-design assistance and guidance. She brings significant added value to our ongoing commitment to superior service and support for your efforts to grow your businesses. 

We, and you, are fortunate to have Lindsay on our team. Lindsay lives in Avon, CT with her husband, Joe, and their beautiful little girl, Charlee.  


Brian Thompson

Brian began his professional career in the Financial Services sector as a mortgage loan officer in Los Angeles, California in 2007. Soon after moving back to Connecticut he joined Norcom Mortgage & Insurance where he established the Wholesale division.

Starting as an account executive with no business or process, he progressed to Senior Vice President of the Wholesale Division with an established team where he thrived for 7 years. With his team he was able to expand distribution channels into Branching and Correspondent, and through those efforts was able to bring a company of 12 employees to 300 in those years. 

Brian spent his last year with Norcom as Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer where he was able to delve into every area of the company. He was also involved in Mortgage Industry affairs, serving as President of the Connecticut Mortgage Association prior to joining the Thompson Agency.

A truly dynamic addition to our team, we welcome his insights and contributions to the growth of our business and yours. Brian lives in Canton, CT with his amazing wife, Lindsey, who he met in Vail while skiing for a few years, yes years, and together they have Lila and Jack.

What's Wrong with this Picture?

Mentioning a nationally known and pretty well established competitor by name can be risky business, (and I'm not talking about the Barber Shop) but this goes beyond a mere comparative mention... Ya think?

 

How would you caption this picture? Maybe...


"Yeah, but We Print and we've a got a whole store." 

or...

"One-Stop-Shop or Drop" 

or...

"Unorthodox Parcel Service"

 or... What are your thoughts?

Winning caption will receive a gift card for the U.S. Postal Service  - (just kiddin')
