Traditional “Outbound” Marketing Strategies, ie. Cold Calling, Expensive Media Advertising, Call Centers, Direct Mailing, Seminars, Physical Trade Shows, etc. were the only methods for branding and reaching out to Potential Clients! Reaching out to Potential Clients was difficult and Costly!
John Wanamaker noted in the 1920s how difficult it was to reach potential customers using traditional advertising: "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don't know which half."!
The Internet, Search Engines, SEO, Blogs, Social Media, ie. Linkedin, ProducersWeb, Insurance Campus, Quora, OnTopList, etc. have changed all of the Marketing and Advertising Rules and Standards! It is now possible to have your potential Clients “Knocking at Your Door”! While it takes time to learn and implement these new strategies, it does not entail the Incredible Costs related to traditional alternatives. Another major improvement is that the Return on Time and Money (ROI) is Measurable!
These “Inbound” strategies “Level the Playing Fields” allowing Organizations of all sizes to reach out to wider markets. Small to medium size Companies can create a unique “Branded” footprint in the Insurance & Benefits Marketplace! Potential “Buyers” utilize search engines to find the Plans, Programs, & Services that meet their needs and price points!
