The quickest way to increase revenue for an independent insurance agency is not to push products and services but to improve the client experience. All of your marketing objectives should begin and end with the client. Increasing revenue is about reaching and signing new clients and upselling existing clients. You can achieve both by putting the needs of clients front and center in all of your growth strategies.
Increasing revenue by improving client experience
Regardless of your industry or the products and services you offer, clients want a personalized and customized experience. It’s not about selling. It’s about connecting and providing valuable solutions to real-life problems your clients are facing. Before they are interested in your products and services, they want to know that you can empathize with their situation.
First, you need to understand your target audience to initiate a tangible marketing strategy. Identify the client’s needs and concerns, and other pain points. Knowing why clients are interested in your products and services will help you target your marketing and reach the right audience.
Go beyond who they are and what they want. Consider the right platforms to reach them, talk to them, appropriate language and communications, and then implement a strategy.
Tools to increase revenue
Second, you need to iterate and integrate your marketing strategy across channels, always revising and optimizing based on data and research.
Client demands and behavior can change quickly, so you need to have the right tools in place to keep up. Stay informed and ahead of the curve by using various tools like:
Social media - great for tracking cultural and social behavior and monitoring what consumers are saying about your industry, your brand, and your competition
Search - understand keywords, phrases, and topics your clients use online to better target content and messaging
Data and Analysis - gauge success and progress across all platforms
Market Research - identify new needs and industry trends to better position yourself in the market
