Talk about Making Great Use of Social Media for Claims! Watch these Auto Claim Direct You Tube Videos!

May 10, 2009

I’ve spent quite a bit of time recently researching all of the various social media options available for claims adjusting firms and for independent claims adjusters and we’ve been discussing it in our ClaimSmentor forums. I’d have to say, from the firms I know, that Auto Claims Direct is the most proactive claims adjusting firm with use of social media! They have blogs, sites at Twitter, Face Book, Linkedin, proactive members of ClaimSmentor, and now today I find some training videos on You Tube as well.

Here is a link to their You Tube profile if you wish to follow their videos in your goal to obtain more auto claim adjusting experience.

Very  impressive Ernie Bray (President of Auto Claims Direct) ! We appreciate your membership and monitoring of our auto claim training forum over at ClaimSmentor too. I don’t know how you find time for it all after reading on one of the social media sites that you now have 850 independent adjusters. I was also convinced of the value of Twitter the other night when my husband who also follows you on Twitter told me you posted late Friday night that the deployment calls from carriers were coming in for the midwest storms. What an advantage that would be to an adjuster with your firm that is ready to deploy if they saw that “tweet” on Twitter and had the heads up to get a call in to let your firm know they are available!

You definitely have my vote for Best at Social Media in the Claims adjusting field. Very very progressive new world! You are right there on top of it all! Deb

To view all of the other social media outlets I’ve found Auto Claims Direct on as a fantastic example of professional ways to use social media for claim adjusting firms you’ll find them here:

Their  Property Adjusting Claim Firm: (and this I didn’t even know until writing this blog)

Thanks for the fine example you are setting for the independent claims adjusting community on dealing with change and setting the pathway to use of new tools available for us all to get the best use of these new social media outlets. Now that is being a ClaimSmentor Mentor Adjusting firm at it’s finest!

We have posted our first of  what we intend to be many many more links to hot topics in the claims industry for those days we just have no time for updating the blog and for some great articles, blogs, or news articles that we just do not have one moment to spend time on this  site on a particular day but want to share a link.

We welcome all replies when you run across something to share with the claims industry. We do preapprove posts as the spam on blog admn sites is overwhelming but if it is professional and property or auto claims related…please post it!
