By Newswire | March 18, 2013

Warwick, RI, 3/18/13 Astonish, a leading digital marketing solutions and sales training provider for insurance agencies, encourages local insurance agency principals, CEOs, and presidents in Michigan and surrounding areas to attend a free one-day sales and marketing training event hosted by the Michigan Association of Professional Insurance Agents (MIPIA) on March 28, 2013 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The goal of the training is to educate agency principals on:

  • How the everyday insurance consumer has changed.
  • How that change affects the way insurance agencies do business.
  • How you can use that information to sell more insurance.

Agencies will learn how to find modern consumers and generate more leads. They will learn how to apply best practices utilized by top agencies in the country. They will learn how to create a new agency culture centered on selling more and retaining more clients. And they will learn how to use social media to find, sell, and keep more clients.

The one-day training event will take place at The Bob at 20 Monroe Ave. NW, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Astonish is holding more than 20 Modern Consumer training events around the country in 2013 and is looking for partners that serve independent or local insurance agencies.
