“This year, we recognize the Klinger Insurance Group for its mastery of social media marketing and brand-building,” Savino said.

That strategy connects the agency with individuals whose interests and hobbies can be insured through their agency. The technique produces results. Within the past year, $740,000 in premium has been generated as a result of social media engagement.
“Social media is all about building a community and fostering relationships” states Robert Klinger, LUTCF, CPIA, President and CEO of Klinger Insurance Group. “Today, it is easier than ever for independent insurance agents to market to their communities informally, and on a daily basis. A modern marketing plan is not complete unless it places a high importance on social media outreach and advertising.”
“Our Social Media presence allows us to build our brand on a daily basis by showing our community who we are, what we do, and what they can expect from working with our agency.” Robert states. “We share our community involvement, our support of small businesses, our diversity, and our commitment to provide amazing service to our customers. The organizations that we follow, engage with, and share content from on social media are just as important as the content that we create and share. When our followers see who we interact with on a regular basis, they get a better idea of who we are and what organizations are important to us.”
The 2017 PIA National Excellence in Social Media Award was sponsored by the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).
