It can be difficult to decide what to post on your Business social media accounts. MCC Brokerage suggests a ratio similar to this. Your Business page posts should only be insurance related about 20% of the time. Remember, you are a resource to your clients. Try posting things they will genuinely appreciate and find helpful.
Take your typical client demographic and, using the graphic as a guide, post content that is relevant and interesting to them! Here at MCC, we specialize in the senior market, as do the bulk of our agents. So, below you will find multiple resources that relate to the 65 and over crowd.
Wellness-related posts should make up around half of everything you post! We know that seems like a ton, but there are many reasons your social media posts need to hone in on senior wellness.
- Wellness is an extremely general topic, giving you freedom to choose from a variety of sub-genres. This may include exercises, doctor’s visit tips, healthy recipes, mental strength articles, stress relief strategies, home remedies, and other general wellness information.
- People care about being healthy. As we learn more and more about our bodies and the importance of taking care of them, more and more people change how they conduct their day-to-day lives. Seniors are no different and they appreciate seeing content that helps them do so.
- Your profession is closely related to wellness. As an insurance agent, you know that health status can affect which plans clients are eligible for. Your clients will associate you, their agent, with their health. You might as well capitalize on that.
- It shows you care. If 50% of what you post is designed to help your clients improve their well-being, they will see that you genuinely care about them. A client who feels valued, won’t run off to the next agent with lower prices. They’ll stick with you for life.
Explore these websites to find relevant senior wellness information. Choose an article you like and share it on you Social Media Business page.
Insurance is your bread and butter, so clients will expect to see related material on your Social Media Business page. Unfortunately, insurance isn’t the most excited thing for everyone.
