AMHERST, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Encharter Insurance is proud to announce that they have won the 2010 Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents (MAIA) Big Event Video Contest with their video clip “Taking Insurance Seriously”.
MAIA hosted a video contest through their Facebook fan page with the goal of increasing both their awareness and fan base on Facebook. The 2010 Big Event Video Contest provided Insurance Agencies across Massachusetts the opportunity to think outside of the box while having fun with Social Media. Eleven agencies entered to show everyone what they were made of while making their value propositions visually appealing. The agencies were encouraged to find their own voters through Social Media and Encharter was able to gather the most votes. Their “funny faces” video allowed them to put a personality behind their agency and the insurance industry, all through the use of Social Media.
“We appreciate the MAIA (Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents) and their focus on social media. Our organization had a great time both creating the winning video and competing in the contest.” Said Kenneth F. Petersen, CEO of Encharter Insurance “Social Media has helped our agency grow, and has allowed us to increase our new business over 80% in the past year. We encourage all of our agency counterparts to look at their Social Media Strategy to see how they might be able to use Social Media to grow”.
