Telemarketing in the Insurance Business

Telemarketing, as the name suggests, refers to selling products over the phone. With advancements in technology, modern telemarketing techniques use emails, instant messaging and videos to take advantage of new ways to promote goods and services.

Implement a Successful Telemarketing Insurance Campaign

Telemarketing cold calling is still an effective way to promote your insurance company. It helps tremendously, however, if you implement some important company-wide policies.

  • Know Your Audience – Demographic information is key to the successful promotion of your insurance products. Learn as much as possible about your target audience, including your customers’ preferences, needs and regional concerns. Understanding the financial concerns of customers is also important.
  • Understand Your Company and Its Products – A successful telemarketer, first and foremost, has a good understanding of your company and its reputation. Potential customers will become more engaged with a representative that not only knows the company’s objectives but is also well-versed in the products and services your company offers.
  • Project a Positive Attitude – A prospective customer is put at ease if the agent maintains a positive demeanor. It’s also important to listen to the customer and stay focused on their concerns and needs.

Train Your Employees

A successful marketing campaign is only successful if your agents are properly trained. Make sure each representative feels comfortable and confident with the information.
