Thanks to the generous support of Work at Home Vintage Experts (WAHVE), we launched our first social media campaign to raise funds.
WAHVE promoted information and content on their Facebook page about insurance, careers, retirement, and education. During this time, folks shared their content and WAHVE donated $2 (maximum $3,000) to InVEST for every share. Why did we team up? WAHVE explains it best in their blog:
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. – Benjamin Franklin
Tomorrow’s insurance industry requires an investment in the education of youth today. And that’s why a new partnership between WAHVE and InVEST is so perfect!
WAHVE launched a cool Facebook campaign to highlight the importance of replenishing our beloved industry with bright, new talent.
You can contribute to the future of hundreds of high school and college students by just clicking the “share” button on WAHVE’s Facebook posts. From June 13 to July 13, we’ll donate $2 to the InVEST program for every share. Our campaign goal is $3,000. Let’s do this together!
WAHVE and InVEST (http://www.investprogram.org/ ) are a perfect match to keep the insurance industry staffed for the future. WAHVE slows the exodus of valuable, talented and experienced boomers from the industry. But we keenly understand we also must attract our share of the millennial generation to insurance — the “new wahve” of vintage experts.
And InVEST attracts those millennials by educating students on the wide variety of insurance careers. For more than 45 years, InVEST volunteers from agencies, brokers and carriers have been in the classroom dispelling the myth that insurance is old, boring and doesn’t lead to a rewarding career. Through a hands-on education approach students get a peek at what insurance really is — a rewarding profession where anyone can make a difference.
The WAHVE InVEST Share Campaign helps spark more young professionals to love a career in insurance.
It’s a great time to be in the independent agency system — for newcomer and seasoned workers alike. And with a simple click, folks can help us in the future of young insurance professionals all across the country.
