While the past couple of years have been a bumpy ride for the insurance industry, most insurers have found ways to work around these obstacles and stay afloat (sometimes even thrived).

But with the current macroeconomic conditions showing few signs of improvement, what’s in store for the insurance sector in the coming years? And what are the factors shaping the future of insurance?

Revisit the key insights from this past month as insurers gear up to brave a new world of fluctuating market conditions while striving to meet the expectations of inflation-weary customers.

In their recent 2023 outlook, Deloitte cautioned insurers that the road ahead is dotted with multiple hurdle and urged them to build upon the momentum they’ve achieved to maintain an ongoing culture of innovation while making customer-centricity the focal point.

Marketing Data

5 ways insurers can leverage data to empower their marketing

With the digitization of physical records and data collected online, insurance companies are flooded with customer data that they never have had access to before.

In this article, we discuss the ways insurers can leverage the data on hand to step up their marketing strategy.

  • Optimize customer communication & messaging: Rather than marketing around the same evergreen topics such as marriage, childbirth, or retirement, reference relevant customer data to create a more targeted communication.
  • Develop personalized lead acquisition campaigns: Use existing customer data to build a look-alike model that helps you target high-value customers. Automated lead scoring can further provide insights into a lead’s needs or interests.
  • Identify leads that are close to conversion: You can do much more with data analytics than just determining which customers to target. One example is scoring leads already in the pipeline to discern between marketing and sales-qualified leads.
  • Create actionable insights to retain customers: Leveraging data is one of the best ways to improve customer experience. For instance, it can help you understand why certain products or services aren’t clicking with specific customer groups.
  • Upsell & cross-sell: There is always an opportunity to upsell or cross-sell customers with suitable products. Insurers that keep an eye out for these opportunities and data on life events are sure to get a leg up on the competition.
