Generating Life Insurance Leads

Have you wondered why your life insurance leads aren’t giving you the results you expect?

Why are some life insurance companies rolling in sales? While your company’s book of business looks like an old Rolodex from the eighties. Why is it so hard?.

Isn’t life insurance something we all need? People should be knocking down your doors! And pleading for permanent policies.

But they’re not.. are they? 

Today you will learn why. Today you figure out what you’ve been missing. And, today you get to peek behind the curtain, gaze upon exactly what changes need to be made and crack the code on generating life insurance leads (the right way)

Does that sound good? It does to us.

So, let’s take a closer look. 

What is a Targeted Mailing List?

In today’s world of business if you’re not precise you’re not growing. And let’s be honest, that is why we created our business. It was to get our message out to as many people as possible.  

Targeted mailing lists are constructed from a wide array of publicly available determinants, which can be explored and placed into a wish list including your target audience. These lists can be used for direct mail, email and good old fashioned phone calls.

We’ll talk more about why we call it a wish list later.

Why are they important?

Being able to know where you are placing your advertising dollars is business 101. Why are you going to waste your money on advertising to people who won’t benefit from your services? You’re smarter than that.

The targeted mailing list is a fantastic way to locate the right leads. 

It’s in your DNA to want access to prospects that are looking for what your company is selling. This desire can be very elusive when not using the proper form of marketing.

Advertising to the masses is ineffective when generating life insurance leads. But easy like Sunday morning with a targeted mailing list.

When should you consider using a targeted mailing list?

When you advertise and market without a plan, you reach potential customers.

Spoiler alert:  But the likelihood you reach people who really want your service is bleak.

Answer some measurable questions when you think about your marketing strategy: 

  1. Do I know all the factors involving your target demographic?
  2. Do I know what data variables I am targeting in my campaign? 

If you cannot answer those questions confidently, you’re being left behind.

Knowing who your target audience is one thing. Knowing how to accurately get in front of them is a skill not easily attainable (until now). If your marketing plan is not adaptable, easy to use and offers a focal point that delivers desirable results, the odds are not in your favor. And It’s time to consider the better alternative.  

Who Needs Life Insurance?

Let’s face it, no one wants to talk about life insurance, or how insensitive life can become when families are left behind without its presence. If people will suffer financially because of the loss of a loved one, it’s almost certain they need life insurance. 

But even some things we need often get avoided until it’s too late. Knowing your client is what this comes down to. DataMasters is who businesses have trusted for decades. They walk you through the steps of getting noticed by the people who need your services most. 

  • Why is understanding this criteria helpful?

Being able to gravitate towards your ideal client saves money, time and unnecessary aggravation. It helps you truly understand who your target demographic is, and what variables you need to focus on.

Is it age, income, location or something else. Knowing the ideal characteristic of your customers is how life insurance companies build loyalty, how they personalize their marketing and stand head and shoulders above the rest. 

  • How can you use your ideal criteria to generate leads?

So, you’ve made a list of must-haves for your perfect client. A wish list of sorts.

Now that you know what you want it’s impossible to hold you back. You can take that list and develop a laser-focused marketing campaign.

One, that will attract your prime lead. One that has the intent to buy. Imagine you needed a list of every male in a specific radius between 24 – 45 years old. That list can easily be created.

Take those people who need life insurance and specifically target them.
