Ingredients:

1 white or yellow cake mix
1 large box vanilla instant pudding
2 cups milk
8 ounces cream cheese
1 large can crushed pineapple (20 ounces)
1 small can pineapple juice
1 large tub cool whip (14 to 16 ounces)
1 cup of shredded coconut
Process:

Pre-heat oven to 325 F.

Follow the directions on cake mix using pineapple juice instead of water. If not enough liquid from the can of crushed pineapple to make the required amount of water needed, add juice from a small I can of pineapple juice.

Grease a jelly roll pan (about 13”x18”x1”). Pour mix into pan and spread evenly. Let set on counter for about 5 minutes before baking. This allows the cake to rise higher. Bake for 20 to 25 minute or until tester comes out clean when poked into the center of the cake. Cool in the refrigerator when cake is finished baking.

Next, combine milk and the ins1ant pudding and beat until thick. In a medium bowl, soften cream cheese. Add pudding a little at a time to the cream cheese and blend until smooth. Spread evenly over cooled cake. Sprinkle crushed pineapple and coconut over the cake. Then spread on a layer of cool whip. Cut into slices and serve.

RCM – Insurance Agent – Insurance Advertising Ideas

8 May

“Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing, but nobody else does.”

Steuart Henderson Britt

You are an insurance agent; you realize with every passing day the economy is getting worse. People are losing their jobs left and right. College graduates are having a hard time obtaining decent employment. People are starting to ditch their jobs and open their own businesses. Owning your own business seems to be the only way to ensure a steady flow of income. Being an insurance agent makes you an owner of your own business. If you want to be successful, you have to advertise. If you want to advertise, you should want to be creative. Recipe Card Marketing post cards will help you with Insurance Advertising Ideas.

 

Insurance Advertising Ideas:

* Personalize your cards. Brainstorm over ideas on how to set your cards apart from everyone else’s. When supplying your photo, take the time to make it standout: get a professional head shot done, dress up like a chef, or use an old, cute photo of you as a kid.

* Take advantage of the social media. Appeal to the foodie in people by Tweeting about the benefits of eating good food and having a fantastic insurance policy, with some reasonable rates. Find quotes about eating and needing insurance, and have them retweeted all over the place. Don’t forget to leave your link for easy access to you.

* Become a sponsor at a community event. It can be expensive but well worth the money. Sponsors get first dibs on prime vendor spaces, and they get choice advertising spots. The higher the sponsor package, the more privileges you can take. See if you can take hold of the mic, and give yourself a plug, while someone passes out some of the recipe cards.

* Get your children involved. Around Christmas time, when your kids are passing out Christmas cards to their classmates, drop a candy cane and a recipe card inside the envelope, and tell them that the recipe cards are for their parents or guardians.

* Get your family and friends involved. Tell your family that if they help get you some paid leads, you will either give them a nominal fee, or fix them a fabulous meal for them and their family and friends. Or do both.

Hungry for Success: Recipe Card Marketing – Creative Marketing Insurance

8 May

The state of the economy has become fickle, unpredictable and shaky to say the least. There was once a time when a person could graduate from college with the absolute assurance that they would be hired eventually. Nowadays, there are holders of Ph.ds applying for food stamps. It has come to the point that if a person wants to guarantee themselves a steady income, they have to work for themselves. That is an excellent reason to become an insurance sales person: no matter where you go, or what shape the economy is in, people will always need health insurance, life insurance or auto insurance.

There aren’t a lot of insurance sales people out there, because it can be a hard field to succeed in; however, the ones that have been in it for a while are still in it because they are so successful. How can an insurance sales agent succeed? Recipe Cards Marketing, sets of postcards with mouthwatering recipes and pictures of both the food and you and your business contact information, can help an insurance agent go from average to great with creative marketing insurance recipe cards and tips.

Recipe Cards, Recipe postcards

* Creative Marketing Insurance tip: Become a vendor at a community event. Have one of the recipes prepared ahead of time, or pick a space close to an electrical outlet so you may cook it and serve it hot and fresh. Pass out samples to people passing by, along with copies of the recipe post cards which also has your contact information.

* Creative Marketing Insurance tip: Create a Facebook page, dedicated to both cooking and insurance matters.

* Create a blog catering to the needs of foodies and insurance matters. Have a section dedicated to spotlighting a recipe of the ‘week’, ‘month’, or better yet, ‘day’-this will keep a steady traffic flow to your blog.

* Feeling ambitious and a little drained from the insurance game: take some of the recipe cards, cook from them and sell dinners to local beauty salons. When they ask where did you get the recipe, take out one, and pass it around. Have your insurance information highlighted with a yellow or orange highlighter.

* Create a Youtube cooking video using recipes from Recipe Creative Marketing. While preparing the recipes, give pointers about applying for insurance, or throw some insurance trivia out there.

These are a few suggestions on how to use these fabulous recipe marketing cards.
