Branding your company is a key component to success. Many businesses out there would not do nearly as well without consistent company branding. Insurance agency branding essentially starts with a logo. When you create a logo, you want it to set yourself apart from your competition. Setting yourself apart doesn’t just come from the logo, though. Your company has to build a brand. The right logo emphasizing your quality, services, products, and customer service care will help build that brand.
It’s time to get innovative and leave your competitors in the dust! To get ahead in the insurance industry, you need to gather reviews. In this day and age your customers are tech savvy, so they will go the extra mile to find out if your products are reliable. But how will your customers know if no one leaves a review? Wouldn’t you want to know if the product you’re buying is worth your time and money? According to Zendesk.com, Dimensional Research reports 88% of online customers make a buying decision based on what online reviews say. That percentage is astounding! If you’re not swayed by that, Jonathon Wolfe, blogger and VP of Techvalidate concludes that 94% of respondents rate company reviews by customers as “very effective” (Survey of 105 B2b marketing and sales professionals). Getting positive customer reviews is extremely important for the success of your insurance agency. The main question to ask is…… how to get customers to leave more reviews?
Tip #1: Sell globally
If you’re looking for more customers, sell to multiple audiences. For instance, if you’re an insurance company, advertising to teens, adults, and the elderly can improve sales tremendously. Almost everyone requires some type of insurance and if not, people who have been informed about it will spread word among others. Envision yourself encountering a phenomenal business that doesn’t necessarily provide for your needs, but it can help someone you know. Will you hesitate to tell that person? Andrew Griffiths, author and entrepreneur from Inc.com, points out yet another great way you can improve your sales. Griffiths states that distributing your products or services internationally and educating your employees in cultural awareness will raise sales abundantly.
