Marketing Strategy

Insurance professionals focus by product line. Most industry resources are general and contain information that is extraneous or not of interest to potential users who concentrate their time and effort by insurance specialty.

A principal observation is the immense amount of content available today is not being delivered efficiently in a format that is useful to the specific product line goals and needs of the underwriter, claims specialist, insurance broker and risk manager.
