The preparedness landscape is changing as quickly as technology is evolving. Where we used to have to wait to hear about the aftermath of a storm on the TV news the next day, now @weatherchannel is reporting live on Twitter as the storm builds and progresses. With hashtags like #BOSnow, we can all prepare for a blizzard before it hits. With a hashtag like #DistractedDriving, we can keep abreast of real-time tips for Distracted Driving Awareness Month throughout April.
Here at Eastern Insurance, it’s important for us to be there for you 24/7. To alert you by retweeting this news so you can prepare yourself and your family for any type of storm. For tips that we will send out as the laws change, as news happens, and as new ways to protect your family and business are created.
For all of these reasons and more, we are excited to announce that you can now find Eastern Insurance Group on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Our Twitter handle is @EasternIns.
Our immediate goal is to share information that positions us as your trusted resource for insurance-related issues that are important to you as well as our communities. We will be tweeting about pertinent topics such as fire prevention, auto safety, weather preparedness, national healthcare reform and risk management, as well as insurance industry news and Eastern Insurance updates. The more we share, the more we hope you’ll follow us as a valued information source.
On our Twitter feed, you’ll notice three hashtags. To find content solely related to Personal Lines, follow #EasternInsForYou. For Benefits news and information, search #EasternBenefitsGroup. And for updates regarding our Commercial Lines, search #EasternInsForBiz.
During the week of May 4th, watch for our special message posts. We’ll be asking our customers and employees to follow us on Twitter and “like” these posts on Facebook. For each follow or like, we’ll be donating $1 to the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and their 19th Annual Mother's Day Walk for Peace up to $1,000.00. The proceeds raised by this campaign will be matched by both the Arbella Insurance Foundation and Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation up to $1,000.00. This means each follow or like received will equal a $3.00 donation for this worthy charity with a potential donation of $3,000.00. We hope you’ll agree that this simple gesture of likes or follows will make a significant difference to the fight against violence in Massachusetts.
We look forward to posting, sharing and blogging about the topics that matter to you.
