Most insurance agents have yet to embrace digital marketing. Insurance agents should take advantage of content marketing, social media, online reviews, mobile optimization, and more. Insurance content marketing helps to keep a close connection with clients no matter where they are in their insurance process. This makes them think of you when they consider insurance needs. Insurance social media is another way to keep in contact with potential and current clients, in order to build trust and credibility. Online reviews on platforms such as Yelp and Google can be very beneficial or extremely detrimental, depending on how you go about the review process. To maintain a positive online reputation, be sure to ask satisfied clients for reviews through email marketing campaigns. As mobile internet use increases, insurance agents must optimize their mobile websites to deliver a user-friendly experience to potential clients. SunCity Advising has helped insurance agents “go mobile” and create an effective marketing system.5
