Well, to start, it helps you collect permission to contact forms and your Scope of Appointment forms electronically.</p> <p>Say a prospective client visits your site and completes the PTC and Scope of Appointment form. Medicareful creates the CMS compliant eSOA and you get a notification by email to set an appointment.</p> <p>But that's not all.</p> <p>At its heart, Medicareful is a consumer-facing quote engine. You and your clients can use it to search for Medicare Advantage, Part D Prescription Drug, and Medicare Supplement plans.</p> <p>Whether you decide to meet in person or share the link to a specific plan via email, Medicareful makes comparing Medicare plans easier than ever. You can filter by plan type, carrier, monthly premium, and maximum out-of-pocket cost to start, then click on the plan details link for a thorough snapshot of what coverage on that plan would look like.</p> <p>Even better, when you contract with select Medicareful carriers, you qualify to activate their direct enrollment buttons on your site. That means your clients can shop for a plan, enroll on the spot, and you get credit for the enrollment.</p> <p>Quote faster. Generate leads 24/7. Stay compliant. Have more time for what really matters.</p> <h4><a href="https://medicareful.ritterim.com/">Discover Medicareful</a> – <a href="https://medicareful.ritterim.com">https://medicareful.ritterim.com</a></h4> <h5>Related:</h5> <p><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/four-reasons-why-ritter-should-be-your-fmo">4 Reasons Why Ritter Should Be Your FMO</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/5-myths-about-selling-medicare-debunked">5 Myths About Selling Medicare… Debunked!</a><br><a href="https://www.ritterim.com/">Ritter Insurance Marketing</a>: https://ritterim.com<br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/video/sell-more-medicare-plans-online-with-medicareful">Sell More Medicare Plans Online with Medicareful</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/what-an-fmo-can-do-for-your-business">What an FMO Can Do for Your Business</a></p> <h5>Subscribe here:</h5> <p><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_iTunes" href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/agent-survival-guide-podcast-empowering-insurance-agents/id1310637866">iTunes</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Google_Podcasts" href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.podcasts">Google Podcasts</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Overcast" href="https://overcast.fm/itunes1310637866/agent-survival-guide-podcast-empowering-insurance-agents-selling-medicare-long-term-care-life-annuities-final-expense">Overcast</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Podbean_Website" href="https://agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/">Podbean</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Spotify" href="https://open.spotify.com/show/1mfx0kUpLU6O4yr8IuFpzF">Spotify</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Stitcher" href="http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=157773&refid=stpr">Stitcher</a></p> <h5>Connect With Us:</h5> <p><a title="Ritter_Facebook_Website" href="https://www.facebook.com/RitterIM">Facebook</a><br><a title="Ritter_Twitter_Website" href="https://twitter.com/RitterIM">Twitter</a><br><a title="Ritter_Youtube_Website" href="https://www.youtube.com/user/RitterInsurance">YouTube</a><br><a title="Ritter_LinkedIn_Website" href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/ritter-insurance-marketing">LinkedIn</a></p> <p><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Website" href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/"><img src="//agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/mf/web/7ebgcj/ASG_Podcast_Episode_Footer_Image_1200X200_REV1.jpg" alt="ASG_Podcast_Episode_Footer_Image_1200X200_REV1.jpg" width="600" height="100"></a><br><span style="font-size:8pt;">© 2018, Ritter Insurance Marketing LLC.

<p> </p> <p><img src="//agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/mf/web/hmumm8/ASG_Podcast_Episode_Header_Using_Hashtags_SMT005.jpg" alt="ASG_Podcast_Episode_Header_Using_Hashtags_SMT005.jpg" width="600" height="200"></p> <h4>Discover the meaning behind this symbol, how to include it in your tweets, and why it's so important for engagement on Twitter.</h4> <h5>ASG's 7 Rules for Using #Hashtags:</h5> <ol><li>Hashtags don't have spaces between words or punctuation in words.</li> <li>Hashtag phrases are usually CamelCase. Each word is capitalized to help you read it, i.e. #InsuranceAgents not #insuranceagents.</li> <li>Hashtags can occur anywhere in a tweet – at the beginning, the middle, or the end.</li> <li>Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics (which are highlighted in the sidebar of your Twitter feed).</li> <li>If you tweet with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag can find your tweet.</li> <li>#Don't #spam #with #hashtags. Avoid over-tagging a single tweet. (The recommendation is no more than two to three hashtags per tweet.)</li> <li>Use hashtags only on tweets relevant to the topic. So don't add #insurance to a tweet about a bad hair day.</li> </ol><h5>Suggested Hashtags:</h5> <p>#Medicare | #Seniors | #Insurance | #Agents | #InsuranceAgents | #LifeInsurance | #Brokers | #Healthcare | #HealthInsurance | #CMS | #ACA | #Obamacare</p> <h4>Mentioned in this Episode:</h4> <p><a href="https://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/did-i-tweet-or-did-i-twitter">Did I Tweet or Did I Twitter?</a><br><a href="https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/twitter-statistics">How to Be Successful on Twitter: 9 Surprising Stats to Know</a></p> <h5>The latest from ASG:</h5> <p><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/how-professional-organizations-make-you-a-better-agent">How Professional Organizations Make You a Better Agent</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/what-an-fmo-can-do-for-your-business">What an FMO Can Do for your Business</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/what-is-ahip-and-why-do-you-need-it">What is AHIP and Why Do You Need It? </a></p> <h5>Subscribe here:</h5> <p><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_iTunes" href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/agent-survival-guide-podcast-empowering-insurance-agents/id1310637866">iTunes</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Google_Podcasts" href="https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hZ2VudHN1cnZpdmFsZ3VpZGUucG9kYmVhbi5jb20vZmVlZC8%3D">Google Podcasts</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Overcast" href="https://overcast.fm/itunes1310637866/agent-survival-guide-podcast-empowering-insurance-agents-selling-medicare-long-term-care-life-annuities-final-expense">Overcast</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Podbean_Website" href="https://agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/">Podbean</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Spotify" href="https://open.spotify.com/show/1mfx0kUpLU6O4yr8IuFpzF">Spotify</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Stitcher" href="http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=157773&refid=stpr">Stitcher</a></p> <h5>Connect With Us:</h5> <p><a title="Ritter_Facebook_Website" href="https://www.facebook.com/RitterIM">Facebook</a><br><a title="Ritter_Twitter_Website" href="https://twitter.com/RitterIM">Twitter</a><br><a title="Ritter_Youtube_Website" href="https://www.youtube.com/user/RitterInsurance">YouTube</a><br><a title="Ritter_LinkedIn_Website" href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/ritter-insurance-marketing">LinkedIn</a></p> <p><a title="ASG_social_media_ebook" href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/social-media-ebook?utm_source=asg&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=social_media_ebook_q3_2018&utm_content=footer_ad"><img src="https://agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/mf/web/mv5g24/asg_podcast_episode_footer_image_1200x200_social_media_ebook_q3_b.jpg" alt="asg_podcast_episode_footer_image_1200x200_social_media_ebook_q3_b.jpg" width="600" height="100"></a></p>

<p> </p> <p><img src="//agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/mf/web/u6mszq/ASG_Podcast_Episode_Header_Compliance_and_Social_Media_SMT002.jpg" alt="ASG_Podcast_Episode_Header_Compliance_and_Social_Media_SMT002.jpg" width="600" height="200"></p> <h4>CMS compliance rules everything you do, even on social media. Follow these best practices to make sure you stay compliant. <a href="https://rimritterim.blob.core.windows.net/public-assets/asgsocialmediacompliance2018-636633805273381162.pdf?utm_source=asg&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=asg_podcast_2018&utm_content=subhead_link">Download the Social Media Compliance Guide PDF.</a></h4> <h5>ASG Social Media Compliance Guidelines:</h5> <p><strong>DO NOT treat a follow, like, or comment as a permission to contact (PTC).</strong></p> <p>If someone contacts you through social media, ask them to get in touch with you via email or by phone so you can keep a record.</p> <p><br><strong>DO answer questions on social media.</strong></p> <p>While a comment isn’t a PTC, it is compliant to respond to a question or comment on a public social media forum. However, you can’t address them beyond the scope of the question or statement.</p> <p><strong>DO NOT buy (or use) social media leads or referrals.</strong></p> <p>Never buy social media contacts as a form of lead generation. Even if you’re given a free list of social media profiles, you cannot initiate contact. Instead, ask your friends and current clients to share your information with potential leads (who must contact you first before you can talk to them). Word of mouth is your business’ best friend.</p> <p><strong>DO keep things generic.</strong></p> <p>No carriers, logos, or specific product information. Promote your services only. It’s OK if you want to tell your clients that you specialize in Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, or PDP, but not which carriers you represent. It’s OK if you want to share information that your clients can obtain in the public domain (such as how much Part B premiums are), but not information that is specific to a product or a plan.</p> <p><strong>Use Common Sense – Just because someone else is doing it, doesn’t make it compliant.</strong></p> <p>Make sure you thoroughly review the CMS guidelines for yourself and ask your FMO or other trusted colleagues educated questions when you see something you’re not sure about. It’s better to be safe than sorry in these instances, which is why we prefer to stick to a PR approach.</p> <h5>Mentioned in this Episode:</h5> <p><a href="https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Health-Plans/ManagedCareMarketing/CY2019_Medicare_Communications_and_Marketing_Guidelines.pdf">CMS 2019 Medicare Communications and Marketing Guidelines</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/social-media-ebook?utm_source=asg&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=social_media_ebook_q3_2018&utm_content=bitly_link_social">Social Media Marketing for Insurance Agents</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/dos-and-donts-of-medicare-compliance">Do’s and Don’ts of Medicare Compliance ǀ ASG005</a> <br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/whats-new-in-the-2019-medicare-communications-and-marketing-guidelines">What’s New in the 2019 Medicare Communications and Marketing Guidelines? ǀ ASG083</a></p> <h5>The latest from ASG:</h5> <p><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/4-perks-of-being-a-part-time-insurance-agent">4 Perks of Being a Part-Time Insurance Agent</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/how-medicareful-helps-you-sell-ancillary-products">How Medicareful Helps You Sell Ancillary Products</a><br><a href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/how-to-pitch-medicare-medical-savings-accounts-msas">How to Pitch Medicare Medicare Savings Accounts (MSAs)</a></p> <h5>Subscribe here:</h5> <p><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_iTunes" href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/agent-survival-guide-podcast-empowering-insurance-agents/id1310637866">iTunes</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Google_Podcasts" href="https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hZ2VudHN1cnZpdmFsZ3VpZGUucG9kYmVhbi5jb20vZmVlZC8%3D">Google Podcasts</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Overcast" href="https://overcast.fm/itunes1310637866/agent-survival-guide-podcast-empowering-insurance-agents-selling-medicare-long-term-care-life-annuities-final-expense">Overcast</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Podbean_Website" href="https://agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/">Podbean</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Spotify" href="https://open.spotify.com/show/1mfx0kUpLU6O4yr8IuFpzF">Spotify</a><br><a title="Agent_Survival_Guide_Podcast_on_Stitcher" href="http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=157773&refid=stpr">Stitcher</a></p> <h5>Connect With Us:</h5> <p><a title="Ritter_Facebook_Website" href="https://www.facebook.com/RitterIM">Facebook</a><br><a title="Ritter_Twitter_Website" href="https://twitter.com/RitterIM">Twitter</a><br><a title="Ritter_Youtube_Website" href="https://www.youtube.com/user/RitterInsurance">YouTube</a><br><a title="Ritter_LinkedIn_Website" href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/ritter-insurance-marketing">LinkedIn</a></p> <p><a title="ASG_social_media_ebook" href="https://agentsurvivalguide.com/social-media-ebook?utm_source=asg&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=social_media_ebook_q3_2018&utm_content=footer_ad"><img src="https://agentsurvivalguide.podbean.com/mf/web/mv5g24/asg_podcast_episode_footer_image_1200x200_social_media_ebook_q3_b.jpg" alt="asg_podcast_episode_footer_image_1200x200_social_media_ebook_q3_b.jpg" width="600" height="100"></a></p>
