CHICAGO, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Insurance Noodle, the membership-based, online platform that provides insurance agents with immediate access to top carriers and products, today announced the publication of Building Stronger Businesses: The Insurance Agent's Guide to Insuring Construction and Contracting Professionals. The eBook offers independent agents assistance in navigating risk for general contractors, carpenters, and other business classes in the construction industry.
With the construction industry just hitting its busy season and the housing market showing signs of improvement, the Insurance Noodle sales guide comes at an opportune time. Agents looking for growth opportunities can download the free eBook to get tips for assessing, classifying, and insuring construction businesses. This information, coupled with Insurance Noodle's construction insurance quoting capabilities, can help independent agents market to local contractors and quote risks with confidence.
The eBook is the fifth in a series of industry-specific sales guides developed by Insurance Noodle for independent agents. "If agents don't have information about risk in different industries, they may have to turn away business," says Ralph Blust, president of Insurance Noodle. "Nobody wants that."
According to Blust, education is a top priority at Noodle. "Agents need to keep learning at every stage of their career if they want to continue to grow," he says. "Our goal is to provide valuable tools they can use to learn about an industry, decide if it's an appropriate market for their agency to target, and create a strategy that will bring in business."
The sales guides can be found on the Agent Academy, an educational resource hub on the company website that is available to all insurance agents. In addition to eBooks, the Agent Academy houses the latest insurance industry news and original articles on a range of agency management topics.
