Everyone knows what an insurance website is, but more granular insurance web marketing terms such as microsites, minisites, landing pages and squeeze pages may be somewhat of a mystery to many agents and brokers. What’s the difference between these? Let’s begin with a brief definition of each:

    • Microsite: A microsite, which is also known as a landing page, minisite or weblet, is an Internet web design term usually referring to an individual web page. Examples of this might be a web page dedicated to Auto Insurance, Home Owners Insurance, Condo Insurance or Errors & Omissions.
    • Minisite: A minisite is a small and focused website dedicated to a specific topic. Most minisites contain just a few pages, though pragmatically they can have as few as one webpage or as many as 20. They are typically a subset of a larger website. For example, the XYZ Insurance Agency website might have 30 pages of content, and have two minsites, one of these dedicated to Transportation Company Insurance (Trucking Insurance Leads), the other dedicated to Benefits and Compliance (Group Benefits Leads).
    • Landing Page: A landing page is a single web page that is rendered when a user clicks on a search result, online advertisement, social media link, etc. The landing page is often lead or sales oriented, displaying content directly related to the advertisement, search result or social media link. An example of a landing page might be Florida Yacht Insurance or Professional Liability Insurance for Engineers.

All of these terms are applicable to insurance websites and insurance web marketing. They are specific tools purposed to drive traffic, generate inbound leads, and increase subscription and/or event attendance. They are also used to convey subject matter expertise and credibility. If you are an agent or broker seeking to extend reach and drive more qualified inbound leads, microsites, minisites, landing pages and squeeze pages should become part of your vocabulary. For more information on territory exclusive Insurance Agency Marketing Solutions visit our website: https://startupselling.com.
