3 Creative Insurance Broker Marketing Ideas
Looking for more visibility? We know, it’s easier said than done. With the competition running high, the need to differentiate yourself as an independent agent remains a constant battle. See how you can conquer more Medicare sales with these 3 insurance broker marketing ideas.
Video marketing is a big opportunity for independent agents. They’re efficient and cost-effective to make. Plus, they increase your online visibility and help create and close sales. Independent insurance agents can use the power of YouTube to leverage video marketing.
YouTube videos are a good idea for a few reasons. First, when done right, they make you look good. They show you’re involved and that you know what you’re talking about. You give people a chance to get to know you while putting your presentation skills on display. They make great presentation practice, too.
YouTube videos also help you “get found” online while putting your best foot forward. You have the opportunity to introduce a professional brand based on knowledge and education.
Educational marketing content is successful because it promotes your brand without being pushy. Create some videos breaking down Medicare, enrollment and plan options and promote them among your target market. Client testimonials are another great video idea for insurance agents.
All in all, video marketing allows agents to nurture leads, no matter what stage they’re at in their buying cycle. A good YouTube video will help build long-term exposure and credibility for your personal brand.
Okay, we know events in themselves aren’t exactly an innovative marketing venture. But, they are effective in creating personal relationships with prospects that leads to more sales. The key is throwing creative events that people actually want to attend. At AGA, our events department makes that easy.
