Fewer New Policies? A Simple Insurance Marketing Trick May Help

October 28, 2009

If your insurance website is getting traffic but converting to fewer policies, one simple fix could be a quick upgrade.

Oftentimes, insurance agencies and companies that have been around a while, have traffic going into their website. If the domain name ( has a few years behind it, that greatly helps the search engine optimization process. Google looks at websites that are more established, have stood the test of time, and offer valuable content. So an aged domain name is a big plus for the search engine marketing side.

While Google likes seeing insurance websites that have been around the web for a significant length of time, that does not necessarily mean they want your design to be old. In fact, if your design is more than a few years old, it’s time for a new one.

The standards for web design have changed significantly over the years. Back in the early nineties, websites frequently used frames (a website structure that uses 2-3 webpages and displays them as one). Now if you use frames, chances are Google has tucked you away deep into their search pages.

With website designs constantly evolving, your insurance website should not be left behind. Most people put a lot of emphasis on the professionalism of websites when deciding to work with an insurance agent, make a purchase, or engage in any other transaction. Your website is an extension of your agency or company and represents the quality and professionalism of the service you provide to your policy holders.

So to bump up conversion and get more out of your insurance marketing dollars, a new website design could be a simple fix.
