Building an amazing brand
Your brand is not simply your website. It is not your logo. It is not your mission statement. One of our favorite definitions of a brand is from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos: “Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.”
What other people say about your agency and how they get their ideas about you is totally within your control. It’s shaped by the consistency of your messages in every communication that you or your staff make, from a mailer to a phone call; the way you present yourself to the world and the way you live your mission and values. The public perception of your agency is shaped by the sum of everything you and your staff do or don’t do. Are you shaping a clear portrait of who you are and what your mission is? How do you differ from the agency down the street?
Addressing your insurance agency’s marketing communications
Agency Appeal is our branding and marketing communication sister company. Wherever your agency is on the branding spectrum, we can help. Whether you need a refresh or start-from-scratch assistance, we partner with you to up your game. We’re not your typical insurance agency marketing solution. We’re a boutique branding and identity firm partnering with you to make you successful. We can also serve as your outsourced chief marketing officer.
Every engagement begins with a Brand Survey leading to the development of a Brand Guide. Your Brand Guide is a cornerstone document, the foundation for all other marketing efforts. This helps to get everyone in your agency on the same page, with guidelines for consistency of message, tone, look, feel and imagery. From there, we help you assess and prioritize other sales and marketing tools you need to achieve your goals.
Website development is one of our core services and areas of expertise. Building a modern, responsive website that shows your agency well across all user platforms is vital today – it’s an integral component of your brand. We also produce, source or project manage virtually any marketing tools or materials you may need.
