Distinguish yourself from the competition using smart marketing strategies.
Finding innovative, effective ways to connect with new customers while growing your current relationships has never been more important. New obstacles like spam blockers and the ‘do not call’ list have made it difficult to reach your target audience and establish yourself as a trusted advisor.
We understand the roadblocks to successful marketing in the insurance industry, and we help clients overcome these obstacles every day. These are some of the ways that a SMART marketing plan can provide you significant leverage against the competition.
Build a Relationship With Your Clients
Insurance and benefit professionals know the value of client retention. Clients can switch brokers at the drop of a hat. The key to developing strong relationships is to communicate consistently and reach out regularly. Newsletters provide a medium for you to do so, without being intrusive.
Build Your Brand
Branding is much more than a marketing buzzword. Establishing your brand begins with superior products and services, but developing trust is about selling yourself. In the end, you — the service you provide, the commitment you demonstrate, and the trust you build — make the difference. Newsletters are a key part of your branding efforts; every time a potential client looks at your logo or reads an article that you have provided them, you leave a lasting impact.
Brand familiarity makes buying decisions easy.
Tie Into Other Marketing Efforts
Adding more clients and growing prospect lists is a key to success in any industry, and almost always requires more than one strategy or campaign. Newsletters increase exposure and build awareness of your brand, reinforcing your other marketing efforts.

Founder James Whitaker began as an underwriter in 1975. In 1988, he started a public relations and advertising firm, with the insurance industry as his niche.
In 1989, James Whitaker & Associates launched Insurance Update (later called Insurance Buyers’ News), a custom client newsletter sponsored by the Western Association of Insurance Brokers. In 1992, James Whitaker & Associates purchased Smart’s Insurance Bulletin, started by Art Smart in 1953 to report on the California insurance industry.
