New Ways to Sell for Mittelstand with Dr. Robin Kiera – The Digital Mittelstand EP:17

The Mittlestand may have already got the hang of being successful, but we can't deny that they still need to develop and adapt to changes. In the 17th episode of The Digital Mittelstand, Dr. Robin Kiera had a lovely conversation with its host, Can Adiguzel, about the new ways to sell for Mittlestand. To identify the new ones, old school sales methods must first be identified and understood why it would not work for us anymore. Robin shared one very important thing to do instead and even advised business owners to try it out themselves. Robin eventually narrowed down how mittlestand can do better at the later part of the interview with three straightforward and attainable steps worth every decision makers' note to ponder. Many have already taken the leap of faith, and the mittlestand will surely never miss out on this opportunity.

Four Truths About Sales No Sales Person Likes to Hear – Handelszeitung

Grant Cardone knows what he's talking about. He is the most famous sales trainer in the USA. In contrast to many of his professional colleagues, he has had sales success himself - building five companies with several hundred million dollars in sales and a real estate empire with over 2.4 billion dollars in assets. Most recently he has also been a TV star in the series “Undercover Billionaire” on Discovery.  

Schweiz Spezial – Neue Geschäftsmodelle jenseits der Alpen? – VersicherungsJournal.de

Versicherungsmanager und Vertriebsfachleute müssen trotz ungeklärter Faktenlage täglich teils schwerwiegende Entscheidungen treffen. Unter welchen Bedingungen geschieht dies und welche Perspektiven werden gesehen? Digitalscouting befragt Branchenvertreter nach ihrer Einschätzung. Die Antworten werden präsentiert in Live-Video-Sendungen auf Linkedin, Twitter und Facebook. In diesem Rahmen sollen im Jahr 2021 neben Interviews mit globalen Internet-Größen wie Gary Vaynerchuk auch regelmäßig Spezialsendungen zu den Versicherungsindustrien einzelner Länder gebracht werden. Den Anfang macht die Onlinesendung „Insurance & Finance Live – Schweiz Spezial“. Moderiert wird sie von Désirée Mettraux, Geschäftsführerin der OCC Assekuradeur GmbH und Kennerin des Schweizer Marktes, und Dr. Robin Kiera, CEO von Digitalscouting. Am 1. April um 16.30 Uhr steht dafür Philipp Marty, Leiter Neue Geschäftsfelder und Partnerschaften der Baloise Schweiz, Rede und Antwort. Er wird über die aktuelle Situation in seinem Land, aber auch spannende Ansätze über die Entwicklung neuer Geschäftsfelder im Bereich „Home“ berichten.  

Insurance Case Study: How I Gained More Than 100,000 Followers on TikTok

It was November 2019 when we decided to take a leap of faith on TikTok and explore this social media app that insurance companies turn a blind eye. One year and five months after, Dr. Robin Kiera (@robin_kiera) now has almost 150K followers, and 3.9M likes, a community of beloved followers, a fashion brand, and a name he can call his own – all of these TikTok gave birth to. Dr. Robin Kiera may be TikTok’s CEO of Diggi, but it didn’t happen overnight. All the milestones we celebrate, small or big, are the product of extensive research and countless trial and errors. The story behind all the numbers and support we now have on TikTok are filled with lessons not bounded by the technicalities of TikTok or any other social media platforms. It is more of the realities as an influencer in the industry who is always on the run for transformation. To share some of the lessons I was talking about, here are some of them:
  1. People are interested in insurance and finance topics
  2. Just do it – and be strong
  3. It’s all about the massive amount of action
  4. High-quality videos matter
  5. Branding is everything

Digitalscouting is a Media Partner of InsurTech Investment Summit

In 2020, InsurTech investment reached an all-time high of $7.1 billion with over 370 deals (WTW Q4 Report). The trend of increasing investment continued even during one of the darkest periods for insurers who were facing Covid liability, record natural disasters, and low interest rates. While this number is significant, it still pales in comparison to the overall FinTech investment of $106 billion in 2020 (KMPG Pulse of FinTech). While investment increased, 2020 was a breakout year for InsurTechs to join the public markets. Lemonade, Root, Clover Health, Hippo, Metromile, and States Title, and others went public through the traditional process or Special Purpose Acquisitions Companies (SPACs). Early VCs and Corporate VCs realized 10x+ returns on many of these companies. With the red-hot market, the question remains for many insurers and venture capitalists, how can they start investing in InsurTechs or support their existing portfolios. This event will explore early-stage, growth-stage, and mature InsurTech investing. It will also include networking opportunities with influential InsurTech investors.
