Marketing and advertising your insurance company involves making your agency more visible and accessible to the public, as well as promoting the identity of your agency as a brand and strengthening brand recall.
Here are some things to think about before launching an advertising or marketing campaign:
– Define specific goals for the marketing effort. Do you just want publicity and get the word out about your agency, or are you after something in particular, such as improving sales by more than 50 percent? It is important to set expectations or goals before any undertaking.
– Identify your target audience. Who do you want to market your agency to? What are you offering your target customers? You can either specialize in one type of insurance or sell different kinds of insurance. There are advantages and disadvantages to both options, so consider them before making a decision.
– Where do you want to advertise? There are various advertising media available, such as TV, radio and print, that is, newspapers and magazines. You can also take advantage of the popularity of the Internet to advertise in that platform. Currently, however, there are still more people watching television than people getting online, so TV still remains a powerful medium. It can get expensive, but if you have the budget for it, consider advertising here.
– Internet marketing can be a little tricky, as there are many options available to you. You have to have a definite idea of your goals and your target audience in order to get the maximum benefit of advertising in this medium. It also helps significantly if you are able to get the services of a reliable PR firm that specializes in Internet marketing and can increase your agency’s online visibility.
– Insurance Leads: there are many insurance lead companies that will sell you consumer leads. This may be a very quick and easy way to generate additional revenue. Purchased insurance leads are often a good decision and keep you focused on selling insurance policies.
There are many ways to promote your agency to consumers. Each has its pros and cons, and you would do well to consider them before deciding how you want to advertise.
