The Right Way to Use Greeting Cards for Insurance Agent Marketing
Improving First-Year Customer Retention with Insurance Marketing
Year 1 is the most important year to retain new customers. Using insurance industry-specific Hallmark cards to make new customers feel warm and welcome creates an immediate good first impression of your company. That impression will likely impact whether they decide to shop for competitors and renew their policy. We recommend a new customer welcome card, business birthday greeting card, an annual review invitation, Thanksgiving and insurance Christmas cards to combat attrition throughout the customer life-cycle, but especially in the first year.
Using Hallmark Business Greeting Cards for Claims, Including First Notice of Death Life Insurance Claims
Making customers feel good, even during the legalities and compliance with claims procedures, can pay off in spades when it comes to customer retention and referrals. No one likes filing a claim, and an insurance industry greeting card that reassures your customer, while meeting legal and compliance requirements, goes a long way to making customers feel safe, comfortable and trusted. Sending a sympathy card to the person who must report the first notice of death for a life insurance claim is money well spent on life insurance greeting cards. The ability to send greeting cards also helps the contact center employees who take those emotionally exhausting calls day-in and day-out.

Competitive Differentiators for Property and Casualty Insurance
Our homes are our safe place and when you celebrate someone’s new home with them, it is an immediate logical and emotional connection. Using new home greeting cards to congratulate clients when they buy a new home or need renter’s insurance on a new rental housing forges an immediate bond between you and your client. Want to make a bigger impression? Offer to send moving announcement cards to their friends and family and include a small message about helping with their insurance needs. And take it one step further by sending an annual home anniversary card. They will be both surprised and delighted that you remembered, as it is likely no one else in their life will.
Greeting Cards for Marketing Insurance Online
Today, some consumers are quite comfortable shopping for and buying insurance policies without meeting face-to-face with an insurance agent. Personal preference often determines if this is option is right for an individual, but regardless of how the person bought an insurance policy, they still need to feel connected to the insurance company. Hallmark greeting cards for business create human moments for life events, work milestones and holidays even when a person isn’t present to represent your company.
Is it better for each insurance agent to buy their own cards or for my company to have a corporate program with Hallmark Business Connections?
When it comes to buying business greeting cards to help insurance agents build their business, both approaches can be highly successful. Here are some pros of each:
Sourcing Greeting Cards for Insurance Agents Individually - The selection is greater for each agent to select the cards that will genuinely resonate with their clientele. From insurance Christmas cards to Hanukkah to customizable cards, each agent feels empowered to connect with their customers by making personalized greeting card selections.
Develop a Corporate Solution for Insurance Agents - With a corporate solution, Hallmark creates a custom website for the organization that includes the company’s own collection of greeting cards. This provides better brand control, coordination between sales and marketing, the ability to add original cards developed for the organization and, when applicable, volume pricing and special services.
