How You and Your Business Can Give Back

Try out these suggestions to help your business give back to the community.

If you want your small business to succeed, then you need to garner support from the local community.  The best way to generate this support is by showing residents that your business cares, and that it is invested in serving the local community.  Not sure where to start?  Here are some suggestions to help your small business give back.

Promote Other Local Businesses

One of the best ways to support your local community is by helping out other local businesses.  Make an effort to buy local, and use your company’s website to promote other businesses in the area.  By networking with non-competitive companies, you can all reach a larger customer base without trying to steal customers from each other.

Sponsor a Youth Sports Team

Find a local sports team and help provide the funds they will need to organize games, pay for uniforms and equipment, etc.  This is an easy way to give back without having to invest a lot of time.  Not only can you feel good about helping out local athletes, but the community will publicly recognize your goodwill.

Organize Company-Wide Volunteer Efforts

Finally, a great way to support the company is by inviting your staff to join you and volunteer around the community.  Not only is this a great opportunity to network and tell others about your company, but it’s a fantastic way to serve the community that your business is part of.

Try out these suggestions to help your business give back to the local community.  Want another great way to make sure your business succeeds?  Get it covered by the necessary commercial coverages.  To get the right business insurance to fit your needs, contact the experts at Stromsoe Insurance Agency.  Located in Murrieta, California, our dedicated team is ready to assist you with all your coverage needs.

Eco-Friendly Business Practices that Make Financial Sense

Learn how going green can save some green.

With the new push to go green, businesses in all industries are cashing in.  Not only can adopting eco-friendly business practices increase your business’s popularity, but it can also earn tax breaks and government subsidies.  Here are some of the environmentally friendly business practices that just make financial sense.

  • Offering Green Products

One business move that benefits the environment and your company is offering green products.  For instance, you should sell products that were made using sustainable production methods, made using recycled materials, produced with less carbon emissions, and so on.  Not only are these products easier on the environment, but they will also impress your customers.  Oftentimes, businesses that sell environmentally-friendly products do much better than companies that don’t.

  • Adopting Renewable Energy

When your business utilizes sustainable energy sources, such as solar energy, it gets a tax advantage over the businesses that don’t.  In an effort to support renewable energy initiatives, the government offers tax breaks, rebates, and other monetary incentives for businesses that switch over to green energy sources.  By supporting clean energy, your business can save a considerable amount of money.

  • Other Eco-Friendly Behaviors

Finally, supporting other environmental practices in your office can also save you some money.  For instance, more careful production processes can help you reduce wasted materials.  Additionally, being more conscious about your energy usage can reduce your business’s heating, electricity, and water costs as well.  Simply making small efforts to better the environment can also benefit your company.

Here are some of the green business practices that benefit your company financially.  Want another way to care for your business?  Make sure you have the proper commercial coverages in place.  To find the right policies for your needs, contact the experts at Stromsoe Insurance Agency in Murrieta, California.  Our dedicated team is ready to assist you with all your insurance needs.

Safety Precautions New Homeowners Should Take

Learn how you can protect yourself as you move into your new home.

If you’ve just purchased a new home, you’re probably worried about keeping your home, your belongings, and your loved ones safe.  Luckily, there are steps that you can take to protect the things you love most.  Try out these safety precautions that all new homeowners should consider.

Change Your Locks

You never know who might have a spare key to your home.  That’s why you should be sure to change all the locks in your home before you start to move in.  While you are getting new locks installed, consider investing in dead bolts and security doors as additional safety precautions.

Hide Your Valuables

When you start to move in, things are bound to be a little bit crazy.  While you might not be able to remember where everything is packed, you should also know where your most valuable items are.  As you are handling the moving-in process, hide these valuables in secret locations throughout your home.  This will ensure that they are not stolen if a burglar manages to break in.  Once you are more settled, you can take your valuables out of hiding and find a secure, more permanent place to keep them.

Invest in a Security System

Finally, getting a home security system is a great way to protect your home, belongings, and loved ones from the risk of burglars and vandals.  Additionally, upgrading to a system that offers 24-hour fire watch will also protect against the threat of a house fire.  Having a security system will give you peace of mind that your house is secure whether you’re home or away.

These are some of the safety precautions that all new homeowners should take.  Want another way to protect your home?  Make sure you have the proper home insurance protections in place.  To get the right coverage to meet your needs, contact the team at Stromsoe Insurance Agency in Murrieta, California.  Our experts are always ready to address your insurance needs.

What You Need to Find Out Before Renewing Your Auto Policy

Get the answers to these questions before you renew your auto insurance this year.

The beginning of January means that it’s time to start thinking about renewing your auto policy.  However, before you simply sign up for another year, there are some things you need to find out.  Here are some of the questions you need to ask your insurer and yourself before renewing your insurance.

Am I getting the best rates?

You should never pay more for your car insurance than you have to.  That’s why it’s important that you ask about possible reduced rates or discounts.  Ask your insurance provider what you can do to lower your premiums and ask about any discounts that you might qualify for.  Even if you’ve asked before, it’s worth it to ask again.  Changes in your circumstances and shifts in your policy can mean that you may qualify for discounts that were previously unavailable to you.

Have my circumstances changed?

It’s extremely important that your insurer have your most accurate and up-to-date information.  Ask yourself if there have been major changes in your circumstances.  Did you add or remove a driver from your policy?  Did you purchase a new car?  Have your driving habits changed drastically?  If you haven’t already reported these changes to your insurance provider, be sure to do it now.  Making sure that your insurer has your updated information will ensure that you are getting the right amount of coverage when you renew your policy this year.

These are some of the questions you should get answers to before renewing your car insurance.  If you have any questions regarding your auto policy, don’t hesitate to contact the team at Stromsoe Insurance Agency.  Located in Murrieta, California, our dedicated professionals are ready to assist you with all your insurance needs
