The key to successful insurance email marketing lies in the ability to engage prospects and clients with relevant information on a consistent and professional basis.

Insurance agencies can leverage email marketing to extend their brand, to provide credibility and to demonstrate thought leadership. Beyond the email marketing basics of “Who, What, Why, Where & When”, digital insurance marketers should:
- Assemble a high quality email marketing list and follow opt-in best practices
- Utilize a high quality, cloud based, email marketing engine, which provides a simple and easy opt out
- Create current and relevant content – don’t sell insurance – provide educational value
- Make “Calls To Action” such as “Click here to register” simple and succinct.
