Insurance agency evolves with the times
Portland Business Journal 11/16/2007

John Timm's father didn't drag him into the family insurance business. He eagerly campaigned for the job.

But as his college education progressed, he realized that doctors, lawyers, insurance agents and other professionals are all in the same business.

What's more, local agents and face-to-face service remain a fundamental and vital part of insurance companies' growth strategies.

Indeed, the typical insurance consumer is barraged with over 10,000 commercials a week through radio, television, direct mail, telemarketing , newspapers, magazines, billboards, inserts and the Internet.
