SEO for Insurance Brokers

Back to Finance

At Targeted SEO we are naturally tech-focussed, but we still place a lot of value on personal service, especially when it comes to buying something as important as insurance. That is why we are dedicated to helping insurance brokers and agents build a strong online presence, to attract new customers and grow their business.

Specialist SEO for Insurance Brokers

If you have an objective to grow your insurance broker business, then you simply can’t afford to ignore SEO. You can invest in the fanciest site that your digital marketing budget will allow, but it is worthless if your potential customers can’t find it.

SEO is the key to online visibility for broker websites in the crowded insurance industry. It can help to distinguish you from the competition, rank higher in search results, drive website traffic, and generate enquiries.

The advantage of choosing Targeted SEO’s web design service is, of course, that we will build your website to prioritise SEO performance.

What is SEO for Insurance?

With the rapid growth of comparison websites, insurance brokers have to work harder than ever before to attract new customers and convince them of the benefits. With the majority of the target audience seeking insurance advice online, your broker company website has to be compelling and visible, or else you risk losing valuable business.

There are clearly so many benefits of using an independent insurance adviser and your website should convey everything that clients are looking for in a broker: professionalism, reassurance, honesty, in-depth knowledge, a personal touch, approachability. If it doesn’t, then it’s unlikely to convince anyone to pursue their enquiry.

In these days of social distancing, your website fulfils the role of your front office more than ever. When a potential customer lands on any page of your website (not just the homepage), they are relying on its quality to tell them what they need to know about your company. If they can’t find what they are looking for with ease, then there are literally thousands of alternative advisors, brokers, or comparison websites just a click away.

In order to match the ever-increasing expectations of your customers and to improve your online visibility, we employ the following SEO best practices in the design of our insurance websites.

Online brand building

Of the thousands of independent insurance broker websites, most are promoting the same or similar services. It is essential therefore to convey a strong, consistent brand to help your company to stand out. Your brand also needs to embody the many compelling reasons to choose a broker over a comparison site.

Targeted SEO has a deep understanding of what makes brands engaging and will craft a distinctive online presence for your insurance firm. We design bespoke WordPress websites that reflect the unique qualities of your business, promote the benefits of your services, and inspire trust and engagement in the user.

Local SEO for Insurance Brokers

Web users often include ‘geo qualifiers’ in their search enquiry, eg. “insurance broker in Reading”. If you are a small or medium-sized firm operating in a particular town or city, it’s essential that you appear in local search results. Web users rarely venture further than page one of search results, so if you are not on it, you risk losing valuable business to your competitors.

If you are an insurance provider serving a specific town or city then it’s vital you rank highly for local searches, these are searches where the location is added to the query. Alternatively for larger firms (with increased marketing budgets) you may wish to target broader searches such as ‘commercial insurance broker’ or ‘insurance broker for small business’. These searches are typically more competitive but not always impossible to rank for.

Insurance Leads

Your fully-search optimised and professional new website is built to generate new enquiries. It’s important, therefore, to make sure that new prospects can contact you with ease. To convert visits into enquiries, we strategically place calls to action (CTAs) throughout your website to encourage visitors to email or pick up the phone.

The use of ‘contact us’ icons throughout your site, linking to a classic enquiry form, makes it simple and enticing for visitors to get in touch. We can also facilitate live chat for instant engagement with visitors to your site.

SEO Content Creation

Regular content creation is a fantastic way to establish trust, expertise and trust with your potential clients and search engines alike. We can help publish regular quality articles on your blog to help grow an audience and drive organic traffic. If you would like to have a go at blogging yourself we can provide training on creating the perfect blog post which answers questions being asked around accountancy and other relevant topics.

Google Analytics & Search Console

We’re sure you already familiar with Google Analytics and using it to see how many visitors your website has had over a given time period, if not we will make sure Google Analytics is correctly deployed on your site and fully functioning.

We also use Google Search Console to measure performance and look for other opportunities to improve your website. We’ll submit your website XML site map and ensure it’s successfully crawled by the Google bot so your site starts to index in the SERPs.

Dedicated Website Management & Hosting

If you do need a new website we can host it for you as part of our monthly retainer, or you can transfer it over to us to save on additional hosting fees. We’ll manage your website for you, taking care of any updates and effectively becoming your website manager.

Targeted SEO are working on our website and organic SEO campaign and so far we’ve been impressed with the level of service we have received.
