Get creative about client events in a virtual world

Get creative about client events in a virtual world

As advisers and clients continue to work remotely in many parts of the country, trends that started in March persist. The pandemic is causing a paradigm shift, and advisers who reenvision their practices now can position themselves for future success.

Let’s look at client events as an example. Whether it’s a big holiday party or an intimate dinner, most advisers host some type of gathering throughout the year. Socializing with clients is a proven way to enhance relationships and is often a great source of referrals, particularly when clients bring friends along.

In our new virtual world, few advisers are hosting dinners or wine tastings, and even fewer clients want to attend; instead, advisers are planning unique, scalable events that are deepening relationships in surprising ways — and, most important, getting clients talking about them. Below are a few examples and suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.


One adviser’s friend is a professional chef whose restaurant closed. The adviser developed the idea of a virtual cooking class, which turned into an enormously successful event. He had aprons printed with his logo (and a food quote) and sent them to his guests along with the invitation. He also included a list of ingredients and where to purchase them. Lastly, the adviser told clients he’d be happy to welcome their friends, too. Not only did all invitees attend, five clients asked to have friends involved. Because it was all done via Zoom, it was easy for the adviser to accommodate more guests — at no extra expense. And, as a kicker, clients have asked to do it again!

It’s worth noting that all guests came to the cooking class prepared to be pleased. Everyone knew why they weren’t together in person. They appreciated the cooking class as a welcome

Collision insurance is a type of coverage that will reimburse the policyholders for damage sustained to their vehicles, due to the fault of the policyholders. As the name suggests, this coverage will pay only when a collision happens.

The event covered by collision coverage are the following:

  • The policyholder hits another vehicle. In these situations, policyholders are obliged to stay at the place of the accident, or else it will be considered a hit-and-run incident. Drivers are recommended to take photos of the damaged vehicles and search for witnesses that can properly describe what really happened. As soon as possible, drivers should report their accidents to the insurers. The property damage liability component of the minimum required insurance will pay for the damages sustained by the vehicle that was hit by the policyholder’s vehicle, and the collision coverage will reimburse the costs to repair the at-fault policyholder’s vehicle. The premiums can increase with as much as 40% after an at-fault accident. After multiple at-fault accidents in a short period of time, the insurers will cancel the policies of at-fault drivers.
  • The vehicle hits an inanimate object. Policyholders can file a claim after they hit a tree, a fence, a lamppost, or even a pothole. These types of accidents are considered at-fault accidents and the policyholder’s insurance premiums will increase. Objects that lay on the road or near the road are seen as avoidable obstacles. If the damages sustained by the vehicles are too small, drivers should not file a claim.
  • The car rolls over. Rollovers are accidents where
