How to Tap Into Technology to Save Money on Insurance

Published on November 5, 2012 by in Uncategorized

Insurance is one of those things that we all need but often put of buying because it’s not as fun or interesting as a flat screen TV. Fortunately, a few technological innovations (especially web-based) have made it super-easy to find affordable life insurance and health insurance policies.

Why Buy Insurance Online?

A common roadblock for people that need insurance but don’t end up purchasing it is the fact that they have to go to their local broker. Besides the energy required to go to their office and listen to their biased speech, there’s the fact that you never know if you’re getting the best deal.

Thanks to the web, this isn’t a problem anymore. According to this article, you can literally get 15-20 life insurance quotes in an hour or so of research (the same, of course, can be done for health insurance, home insurance etc.). Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

This not only means you can see what policies are best for you (as they often have very different coverage), but you can compare prices. And if you want to save money on your monthly premiums (who doesn’t), shopping online is the only logical solution. And you can purchase a policy in minutes without having to leave your living room!

In other words, the insurance broker is more or less obsolete.

Once you have a list of potential insurance providers, it’s time to do your homework to see if they have positive reviews online. Sure, the company may look reputable and offer a great monthly premium, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be there when you need them.

And in lieu of actually having disaster strike, reading reviews from people like you is the easiest way to find out about your targets.

Thanks to the advent of web 2.0, finding honest user reviews has never been easier. You can easily type your potential company’s name into your favorite search engine and see what people are saying. And if you really want to dig deep you can head over to review sites like or Here you’ll read stories and insights of how well the company treats its customers.

If you find that a company has a poor reputation and a cheap rate you may want to consider spending more to work with an insurance company that’s legit and trustworthy.

How Technology Has Allowed More People to Start Working From Home

Published on October 26, 2012 by in Uncategorized

Woman Working From HomeAccording to this article from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, almost a quarter of all people did some of their work at home in 2010. The site adds that this trend is set to explode in the coming decade. And why not? With broadband internet and other technological advances, working from home has never been easier. Here are a few technological advances that have allowed people to do their work from wherever they’d like.

High Speed Internet

Most people go through the hassle of commuting to an office only to spend their day online. More and more employers realize that work can be done at home. While slow internet speeds made certain work (such as graphic design and corresponding with clients) challenging, high speed internet coming into the home has made it so almost anything can be done online.

In fact, some people aren’t just doing “career work” online. They’re actually taking surveys from their home, freelance writing and generally making money however and wherever they please.

Work Flow Software

In the early days of the internet handling big projects was a real hassle. Even large scale projects with 50+ people working had to be done via email. Thankfully, the advent of work flow software has allowed large teams to handle large projects with ease. For example Basecamp is a software program used by millions of teams that allows them to collaborate like never before.

Advanced Freelance Websites

Freelancing has come a long way since old-school forums first burst onto the web in the mid 1990s. Sites like Elance, Odesk and Vworker have revolutionized how people do work around the glove. For example, you can now recruit, hire, collaborate and pay a worker safely and securely through one single website. This is an unappreciated step forward that has allowed thousands to escape their 9-5 and start working for themselves.
