With the launch of Ezra Penland Actuarial Recruitment, the leading actuarial recruiting firm in the world, some of my ideas below remain on hold.
My recent work includes complete, working websites, while other works are simply blueprints for future websites. Please scroll down and take a look.
I’m a web marketer with an analytical background. I know how to make websites popular and I know how to develop business from websites, both of which I’ve done for 11 years. If you have the skills and the interest to possibly partner with me on any of my projects (or interest in partnering on any of your projects), contact me at ClaudePenland.com/contact or email@example.com.
Past partners recommend my prior work highly.
At ClaudePenland.com/multimedia, I’ve put together presentations on social networking for insurance professionals, Twitter, emerging risks, insurance trends, predictive modeling for actuaries, microinsurance, pandemic models, catastrophe risk trends, predictive analytics, actuarial news, reinsurance, Takaful (Islamic insurance), insurance startups trends, executive recruitment, social networking startups trends, web trends, pension risk trends, insurance mergers and acquisitions, China/Hong Kong insurance markets, India’s insurance market, Bermuda’s market, job hunting and Solvency II European regulations, which can be freely downloaded and shared. I’ve also aggregated European insurance news and web development news.
Also at ClaudePenland.com/multimedia, I have written articles on Solvency II, Twitter, predictive modeling, insurance trends, Takaful, microinsurance, social networking one two three four five, pandemic models, reinsurance, emerging risks, web trends, recruitment technology, life insurance salaries, health insurance salaries, property and casualty insurance salaries, reinsurance salaries, pension risks, executive recruitment and insurance startups.
On ClaudePenland.com, I write at least six posts a day on the business issues that I explore daily. These include Web Startups; Insurance News, M&A, Startups & Trends; Web Development & Trends; Odd Business Ideas; Global Finance & Investment; Reinsurance; Catastrophe Risk; Predictive Analytics; Solvency II; Pensions; Risk Management and Takaful.
My ideas include applying predictive analytics, social networking and social proof to business problems in somewhat unique ways. For example, if you’re selling business-to-business, rather than approaching those making the decisions at a company, you might instead want to approach the influencers within that company so that they can state your case to the decision makers. How do you algorithmically find the influencers inside companies? I have a few ideas about that (so do others). So much focus is directed at social networking today, and too little focus is directed at social proof.
I also built a regional group of websites focused on startups. Since I’ve been figuring out what I want to do with my career, I’ve been reading a lot about new startups being developed. I’m putting that curiosity to use on these 25 startups sites. It is my hope and expectation that each of these sites will eventually grow to be a local startup hub within these markets.
People love salary surveys. I’ve created a handful of these from SEC filings and I plan to create others. Updated salary surveys are sticky content. I’ve created salary survey PowerPoint presentations and videos, too.
I also hope to consider what unique business applications can be applied to Tweets. I read often about what’s being done in this field of study. I’m constantly amazed at the data richness of what folks push out there onto their Twitter accounts. And now it only costs $360K/year to analyze 50% of all annual Tweets.
There are dozens of additional ideas of mine that I’ll be looking to flesh out on these pages. In no particular order, here are 10 of those: 1) I’d like to do something slick with Hunch.com’s API. 2) I’d like to put the underemployed around the world to work on crowdsourced tasks. 3) Staffing firms need an objective third party to collect recommendations and rank their services. 4) Valuable professional stories can be told from studying LinkedIn connections in unconventional ways. 5) Microinsurance will explode as its value is eventually recognized in the same light as microloans. 6) Many academic papers which describe business algorithms are just waiting for websites to come along and apply those algorithms. 7) Hiring strategies applied to social networks. 8 ) A public inventory of how much surgery costs. 9) Software to glue complementary social networks together on the fly. 10) An online, do-it-yourself company interview reservation system.
Would prefer to build something like Pplmatch.com and package it for direct and third-party recruiters. It finds LinkedIn profiles that are similar to an individual profile. Third-party recruiters are always hearing, “I want somebody just like this.” I also dig RadiumOne‘s idea of look-alikes. Also see here.
Within the next three years, US local web advertising is expected to double, US mobile web advertising is anticipated to triple, and US mobile eCommerce revenues will quadruple. Everybody will have smartphones. So I’m cooking up some mobile and local ideas, too.
When’s the best time to make a blog post about a particular topic? A Facebook wall post? LinkedIn status update? LinkedIn group post? Would like to dig into the math behind maximum impact.
I’ve built some traditional job search sites but haven’t marketed them yet. I think the medical, IT and legal fields will continue to be growth areas, and so I built job sites for those fields. One aspect of marketing them will be to get third-party recruiters to learn about them. I have high expectations for these sites even though they aren’t much to look at right now.
Eventually planned: Startup sites for NYC, Chicago, Texas, Seattle, Canada and India.
