An award-winning public relations professional, Slome notes that too few insurance agents utilize publicity to build their business. "It's an overlooked opportunity and we are pleased to help the agents listed on the Association's online directory of local Medicare insurance agents."
The kit was made available at no charge to agents listed on the directory. Non-listed agents can purchase the kit for $150.
The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance supports insurance professionals and organizes the national Medicare Sales Summit. In addition, AAMSI hosts the national online directory giving consumers free access to find local Medicare insurance brokers and agents at https://medicaresupp.org/
