LTC Marketing Tip

Marshall Clement, CLTC, LTCP, GPAgency's Director of LTC Planning Solutions

Sometimes brokers lose sales to other producers because their best clients don’t know they “do” LTC. One easy way to stay top-of-mind when it comes to LTC is to simply add the ‘LTC Awareness Month’ logo to your signature line and/or any other written correspondence.
SAVE 30%: Thrivent Supports the CLTC Designation.
Thrivent supports CLTC's (Certification for Long-Term Care) mission and has seen the success achieved by those who adopt the CLTC approach. According to CLTC data, graduates write over 20% more LTCi in their first year after earning the CLTC designation. To celebrate LTC Awareness Month, Thrivent negotiated an exclusive discount with CLTC. If you enroll before December 15th, they can save over 30% on this training.
