Utilize Medium for Your Contacts

Since insurance business is involved heavily and directly with customer contact (personal or through a medium), you’ll have to just assert and be known to your target clients. A better way is to just to let them know first that you exist and you’re interested to help them out in any way you can.

Of course it’s difficult to get hold of customers especially if you’re calling them up during office hours. They’re always busy, well; we all are. You can at least start calling them before office hours and just few minutes after. This way, they’ll definitely notice your call and you’d have a higher chance of talking to them.

As for your fellow insurance agents, try to be extra nice to them. If you find a way to work together, you wouldn’t think it’s difficult to reach out to them any longer

Be An Open Source of Information

What is it that you really do when you’re an insurance agent? Normally, interaction with clients becomes an everyday routine. But online, you gain visitors that you haven’t even met in person yet.

So, to make your insurance website more effective as a communicator, what you need to do is open all possible ways of communication for you and your (potential) clients. It needs a little time (just a little) to get along with these things, but don’t worry, you’ll surely get the hang of online communication once your started it.

A simple message board would suffice. It’s where your visitors and customers can leave any quick questions/comments they want to let you know. If you have time though, you can personally send them an email for your answers or, to save you from sharing the same information over and over, include an FAQ section.

Don’t leave out your marketing plan undetected. Remember that your networking plans, whatever or however you want it presented goes well together with marketing strategies.
