TechInsurance Highlights 3 Opportunity Areas for IT Consultants in 2016

Technology business insurance provider outlines revenue growth opportunities for consultants and independent contractors

CHICAGO—TechInsurance, the nation's leading online insurance agent for IT consultants, freelancers, and small businesses, today published tips for increasing revenue in 2016 by tapping into three opportunity areas.

The tips highlight industries likely to need high levels of IT support in 2016 – Internet of Things manufacturers and retailers, online retailers, and healthcare businesses – and point IT business owners toward resources to help them reach these target audiences and improve their selling strategies.

"For a small business, achieving and sustaining growth can be one of the most exciting and frustrating challenges," said Ted Devine, CEO of TechInsurance. "Knowing where to focus your growth efforts can make a substantial difference in your business's success in the long term." Devine also noted that, because many small businesses are so laser-focused on the day-to-day of keeping the doors open they don't have time to step back and consider how larger industry trends might help them.

Among the trends highlighted on the TechInsurance blog are…

  • Data exposure via the Internet of Things. As more manufacturers and retailers hop on the IoT bandwagon, TechInsurance notes, there are increasing opportunities to offer network and security consulting services.
  • Online retail risks sparked by the EMV card transition. Since October 1, increased security in brick-and-mortar stores has made online retail increasingly attractive for hackers, making e-commerce businesses key areas of opportunity for web design and security consultants.
  • Ongoing vulnerability for healthcare businesses. Healthcare data is valuable and healthcare businesses face steep penalties for security lapses. This provides ample opportunity for IT businesses to provide security training and software support.

Details about how IT consultants and business owners can spur revenue growth by targeting these trends are available on the TechInsurance blog:
