Cloudia Assistant

Cloudia Assistant is not your typical CRM created for several industries. Cloudia was created for professional agents/agencies who need a constant flow of information for their prospects and, for retention purposes, their clients.

Cloudia was produced to bring business to you and help you retain that business once obtained. Whether your lead is hot or just bought from someone else, Cloudia will continue keeping you in front of that prospect until they want to try something different and when they become hot again, you are the person they remember and trust, especially when the last time they searched for information they received 50+ calls from other agents. Now, you will be the only one to call; and you know it is much easier to sell when someone is calling you instead of you calling them.

Several managers utilizing Cloudia Assistant, with their many distractions (recruiting, training, management reports, meetings, etc.) no longer make cold calls. They have so many people calling them they have no time for cold calls and yet, remain the top producers for their respective companies.

Cloudia Assistant offers the following powerful features for professionals:

  • Best Drip Marketing rates available with multiple concatenating campaigns working simultaneously
  • Lead Tracking and Organization based on the folder setup of your choosing
  • Leaderboard and Shared Folders for Group Motivation and Teamwork
  • Customizable Viewing of Data the way You Want to See It
  • Automated Commission Calculation system
  • Quote Engine (for Health related products)
  • Free Training and Technical Support
  • Data security like no other: Managers can't take agent's lead; agents can't take company leads
  • Marketplace to Purchase Leads from various integrated Lead Generation companies
  • Integrated Predictive Dialer and Soft Phone (additional expense)

One of the greatest features of Cloudia Assistant is the price. At only $29.99 per seat, out of the thousands of CRMs available, there is nothing even close to Cloudia’s value at the professional level and we haven't raised our prices in 5 years..

Call 817-778-4508 or e-mail info@cloudiaassistant.com for more information, demo or Click Here to Sign-Up for a free 15 day look.  Please place “NAEPC” in the field “Referred by” and you will receive 30 days free trial.

Disinherit the IRS

Help your clients Disinherit the IRS

In today’s competitive financial services industry, you need more than just a license to sell insurance, securities, and investment products.

Studies on generational marketing reveal a different kind of decision-making process is now taking place in America. The Greatest Generation is beginning to pass its wealth to the Baby Boomer and X generations and this means your style of sales will need to adapt if you want to build new relationships and gain their trust.

Education is a key factor in marketing to these sophisticated clients.  But it takes more than just a slick product brochure. And while a generous expense account can help you build a relationship over dinner, these consumers will need more than just a nice conversation.

That's why Author and Family Wealth Preservation Specialist - E. MICHAEL KILBOURN dusted off his best-selling book Disinherit the IRS, and rewrote it in 2014.  Written by NAEPC member E. Michael Kilbourn, and estate planning attorney Brad Galbraith, The Florida Domicile Handbook, is a great way to enhance your client education efforts.

NAEPC members receive a 25% discount off the retail price by logging in to the members only section and placing an online order.  After visiting http://www.kilbournassociates.com/disinherittheirs.html, input “NAEPC” to receive the 25% discount during checkout.

Estate Planning Smarts: A Practical, User-Friendly, Action-Oriented Guide, By Deborah L. Jacobs

A lawyer and award-winning journalist makes readers more comfortable addressing a stressful topic. This book can educate clients before and after they meet with advisers. Estate Planning Smarts stands out from other books on this subject by:

• Explaining complex principles in simple terms
• Humanizing estate planning, with anecdotes about the estate plans of Paul Newman, Michael Jackson and others
• Including an action-oriented “to-do” list at the end of each chapter
• Recommending against a do-it-yourself approach, encouraging readers to seek professional advice and offering suggestions about how to find it

Here’s what reviewers have said about this wonderful resource:

“A terrific guide for people who are just beginning to grapple with estate planning, as well as those who have (or think they have) their affairs in order.”
– The Wall Street Journal

“This is a category killer: a book so good there’s no need for anyone else to cover the same material.”
– Kaye Thomas, tax lawyer, author, founder of Fairmark.com

“Simple—but not simplistic— this is a book you can feel comfortable giving as a business generating action oriented holiday gift.”
– Steve Leimberg’s Estate Planning Email Newsletter

While the estate tax is in flux, Estate Planning Smarts has another virtue: Jacobs issues updates that can be downloaded from the book's Web site, www.estateplanningsmarts.com, and tweets at http://twitter.com/djworking.

HeirSearch.com – A Division of International Genealogical Search Inc.

Many heir locator firms, otherwise known as “heir hunters,” use questionable, high-pressure tactics to obtain excessive percentage fees of inheritances. In order to protect their percentage fees, heir hunters may withhold the name of the deceased, and even the amount of the inheritance until the heir agrees to sign a contract. This means heirs are being asked to sign away a percentage of an unknown amount and heir hunter fees can sometimes be as much as 50% of the person’s inheritance. There is A Better Way.

Since 1967, at HeirSearch.com, we provide the legal and trust professions with forensic genealogy services A Better Way through our five-pillar approach that ensures reasonable, non-percentage based fees, authorized search services, a 97% success rate, documented court-ready reports and worldwide service. We welcome the opportunity to work with executors, administrators, trustees, fiduciaries, bank and trust officers, and their counsel.

To receive your complimentary copy of our Laminated Consanguinity Chart showing degrees of relationship by blood, please contact us at 1-800-663-2255 or email us at info@heirsearch.com. The Laminated Consanguinity Chart is a great resource to reference when meeting with clients or to use as an educational tool in seminars.

Klark Proposal Software, Inc.

"We have been using Klark Software in our client presentations since 1993.  The clients love them because they put the technical concepts into visual displays and language that the client can understand.  Half of our time is trying to make complicated concepts or products sound simple and the Klark Software does that."  Mike Halloran, Past President NAEPC – 2010.
 

Klark Software offers you a simple, visual way to educate your clients about the role that life insurance plays in Estate, Business and Personal Planning.  Since 1993 our programs have featured a short learning curve, simple interface and minimal output that is easy to understand.  We are a proven point of sale tool that uses color graphics to teach clients about the fundamental concepts of proper planning and engage them in the decision making process.

The Estate Planning Program features a one page fact finder that, when completed, allows the entire presentation to be generated.  Visual, color graphics and text bring to your client's attention the fact that although estate taxes are unavoidable, there may be methods available to minimize their impact.  By interacting with the fact finder, our program calculates both present and future settlement costs for joint and single life scenarios.  Our “Cash Flows” proposal compares the three most common ways of funding settlement costs.  A loan, sinking fund and life insurance are illustrated at their present value allowing you to make an “apples to apples” comparison of the three funding methods.  A sample presentation of our Estate Planning Program can be found here

Our Business Program helps educate your clients about the fundamentals of a Cross Purchase, Key Person, Executive Bonus and other business planning concepts. Samples of our Business Program can be found here.  The Personal Program contains numerous proposals regarding Life Insurance and Retirement.  Samples of the Personal Program can be found here.  The Due Diligence section of the Personal Program contains a database of over 200 Life Insurance Companies.  It allows you to compare companies either by their key attributes or how they are rated by the four major rating services.  Samples from the Due Diligence Section can be found here.  Our software is updated in a timely manner to ensure accuracy and compliance.  Training and support are included as a vital part of service to our customers.

Download NAEPC pricing HERE.

For interested parties we offer a 30 day demo program.  There is no charge, no obligation and includes training.  With the training you will learn how to navigate around the software and how proposals are used in the field.  To request a demo, email us at sclark@visi.com or call (800) 289-5774.  To learn more about Klark Software visit our website at www.klark.com.
