50 Insurance Agency Blog Ideas

Posted on Apr 23, 2010

insurance-marketing-blog-ideasSocial media has a handful of pioneers, one being the indefatigable Chris Brogan, whose contributions include the best selling “Trust Agents” and a multitude of social media and marketing blog gold dating back to 2004.

Without meaning to, I randomly stumbled upon a September 19, 2007 (my birthday, no lie!) Brogan blog post titled, 100 Blog Topics I Hope you Write. With a fair amount of my professional life spent teaching social media best practices to insurance professionals, I frequently hear the question, “What should I blog about?”

To be clear, Brogan did not advise creating another list of blog ideas, but the following topics are for seasoned or aspiring insurance agency bloggers.  Some focus on the community, some on insurance expertise and some are completely random. I’m not quite as ambitious of a pioneer, so you only get 50.

  1. Why I love being an insurance agent
  2. What are your agency’s values
  3. How is trust earned
  4. Improving the insurance industry’s image

Obviously no one can tell you what nail polish to wear but if you are keen on looking hot this summer try to take the nail polish trends for summer 2012 into consideration.

  32. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or two images. Maybe
    you could space it out better?
