  Best Business Practices 
  • The 7 sentences you need for a marketing strategy
    It's important to create a strategy to guide your marketing efforts, but this strategy need not be complicated, write Jay and Jeannie Levinson in this excerpt from their book "Guerrilla Marketing Field Guide." Your strategy, which only needs seven sentences, should address topics such as your target audience and the tools you can use to reach them.

  • How to perk up your company culture
    Keep your employees motivated by setting aside time for innovation and by giving them an opportunity to voice their concerns, writes Kevin Daum. "Structured complaint sessions will act like a pressure-release valve," he writes. You could also spruce up the office with some art, encourage your employees to make videos about your company or give out chocolate.

  • Colo. clarifies parameters for brokers working with exchange
    Insurance agents and brokers can obtain referrals and sell policies via Colorado's health insurance exchange, and commissions will be paid directly by insurance companies instead of through the exchange. The state's Division of Insurance will retain oversight and licensing of producers. "Brokers are an important partner for the exchange because of their expertise, experience and strong history of serving businesses in Colorado," said Colo. insurance exchange spokeswoman Myung Oak Kim.

  • Reverse auctions: Another way to reach employers
    Some employers have participated in reverse auctions for dental, vision and other optional employee benefits. The employer initiates the auction and sets specifications, then prequalified insurers place electronic bids for the business and finalists are given an opportunity to revise their bids. Brokers or benefits advisers can conduct the auction on the employer's behalf. GoLocalWorcester.com (Worcester, Mass.) (2/12) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • States prepare to market health coverage to the uninsured
    States faced with the prospect of bringing millions of people into health insurance exchanges are developing strategies such as partnering with local celebrities and athletes to reach the 30 million uninsured Americans who will soon be eligible for coverage under the Affordable Care Act. "We have to look at doing things a lot differently than what's been done in the past because this is a very unique audience, and we're marketing a product that's never been marketed before," said Michael Marchand of the Washington Health Benefit Exchange.
