February Luncheon Meeting

“Social Media Made Powerful!”

By Dawn McFarland
President - M & M Benefit Solutions Insurance Services

To be effective communicators and educators, Benefit Brokers need to reach their prospects and clients where those consumers are. And increasingly, consumers are looking for online communications as much as real world contact. The purpose of this course is to educate Brokers on how they can best use social media and e-mail to effectively provide service, advice and counsel to consumers concerning benefits and the regulatory environment. Course participants will learn the different purposes of various platforms, their proper, ethical use, methods for improving brokers’ effectiveness when engaged with these platforms and their connection to real-world communications.
