Why you need sales and PR consultants insurance
If your business provides a professional service or gives some form of advice on a consultancy then your clients have an expectation of receiving expert guidance and a specialist service. If this service is not given, the customer could then make a legal claim. That’s why it’s so important to have a comprehensive insurance package in place which protects you.
As a professional, whether you specialise in sales or PR, you will be giving strategic and creative guidance on a range of marketing projects, meaning that the potential cost to your business if a claim were to be made could be high, especially if a mistake is made. As well as any resulting legal expenses there could also be compensation costs to pay if a claim against you is successful, both of which could be detrimental to your business.
The Insurance Octopus can help get you covered in no time. We will help you to put together a business insurance package specifically tailored to your business needs by working with a selection of UK insurers providing the widest choice of PI insurance. We can add a variety of additional covers, as well as provide options for covering you in sector specific situations as required.
