Google Ads for Independent Insurance Agents

Google Ads for Independent Insurance Agents 1

How do insurance agents use Google Ads?

Google Ads (or Google AdWords) can help insurance agents reach a wider audience through displaying ads on a variety of websites and creating ads to display when people search certain keywords. Agents can select ad budgets, keywords they want to target and keywords to exclude to help reach the most relevant audience.  

Why should insurance agents use Google Ads?  

  • Get quick ROI. While SEO is a long-term investment, paid keyword ads can help you start getting traffic on your website right away. 
  • Reach a wider, relevant audience. Google Ads are displayed at the top of search results and through Google’s ad network. They can help you reach more people who are searching for the information and services you have to offer.  
  • Maintain control over your ad budget. You don’t have to have a huge advertising budget to get started with Google Ads. With pay-per-click (PPC) marketing, you can choose how much you are willing to “bid” per metric, start small and tweak your strategy as you see what gets the best results.
