Did you know email marketing remains one of the most powerful digital marketing tactics in today’s world? Paired with additional marketing tactics like direct mail and social media, the three create high-performing marketing strategies known as drip campaigns.
When it comes to marketing for insurance agents, drip marketing campaigns can help you gain new clients, cross-sell to existing clients, and generate referrals with personalized content.
Keep reading to learn how insurance agents do drip marketing campaigns, what tools are used for marketing automation, and how using an agency management system can level up your marketing strategies.
What Is a Drip Marketing Campaign?
Drip marketing is a strategy that’s been around for a while, but it continues to be a proven method for reaching clients and staying top of mind. At its core, drip marketing involves sending a constant flow of marketing material to a targeted audience. The continuous flow of smaller ‘drips’ creates a ripple effect that spreads and forms a larger pool of awareness.
Example Drip Marketing Campaign for Insurance Agents
Email, social media, and direct mail are common methods for executing drip marketing campaigns. The best campaigns combine all three to spread awareness for a shared objective. So, for example, say you're looking to get existing customers to bundle boater's insurance with their home insurance. Before the start of summer, you could:
- Send emails to existing customers highlighting the importance of boater's insurance and the convenience of bundling through your agency.
- Send the same audience direct mail booklets a few weeks later with additional information, including rates, contact info, and local boating regulations.
- Create a social media campaign with posts that highlight the importance of boater's insurance and your offerings.
On their own, each method has a limited chance to sway your audience. But when used together, your opportunity to reach and persuade grows with each 'drip.' Think of it in the context of our boating example — an angler with more lines in the water has a greater likelihood of catching fish than the angler who only uses one pole. Multi-channel promotional pieces work together to generate awareness and increase the likelihood of your customers bundling.
How Insurance Agents Do Drip Marketing
As you can tell, drip marketing tactics are effective for achieving specific objectives in the insurance industry. But with so many moving parts, they can be challenging to execute for smaller teams or independent agents.
Luckily there are many tools out there that remove the tedious, repetitive aspects of building a campaign. Marketing automation is a resource many agents use to create streamlined drip marketing workflows and share relevant information with clients. Let’s review what tools are used for marketing automation for agents.
