    I am working on developing more referral relationships in my area with P&C brokers, final expense agents, etc. in order to help their clients with their Medicare choices. I have one agency willing to put up a banner, I was also thinking posters would be nice and cheap.
    Here's my question,
    any ideas on what it should say?

    This is my first go at it:
    Have questions about Medicare? Get solid advice from a Independent Medicare Specialist. Don't let the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) confuse you this year!
    (not affiliated with Medicare or Social Security)

    Appreciate any tips or ideas that worked for you.

    I think that looks pretty good. I would have my phone number and/or web site on the sign as well

    Is there a reason why you chose a white person to hold the sign?:skeptical:

    How did you become a Medicare Specialist? I didn't think we could use wording like that in advertising.

    Dan Kennedy - a Cleveland friend of all of us ;), would recommend an offer....

    And, to clarify, an "offer" is never "solid advice."

    Just a thought...

    Don't you have to use CMS disclaimer's and have this approved by CMS.

    I also don't think we can use Medicare specialist, it may indicate you are representing Medicare.

    I used to tell an agent that worked for me he could wear a sandwich board and walk up and down the street in front of our office, selling dental. He loved selling dental plans for some reason. We were going to make him up a hat that looked like a big molar.

    Oh the sign does look good though.

    Just delete "Independent Medicare Specialist"

    This assumes you are not MA or PDP certified. If you are, forget the entire idea.

    i'm going to have a sign made that has an arrow pointing to my office and it will state:
    ADVANTAGE PLAN ENROLLMENT CENTER.

    i think i'm ok with this wording.

    I don't think CMS would view Medicare Specialist. If the sign is generic, which it is for the most part, does it have to be CMS approved? Instead of Ind Medicare Specialist, substitute We Have Answers and a phone number....or Independent Insurance Agent and Phone number
