September Insurance Agency Marketing Plan
New month means new marketing! I love September (and not just because it’s my
birthday month). To me, September is the new January. It’s your second-chance of
the year for a fresh start. January might be a new calendar year, but frequently
people are a little burned out in January. You’ve just survived the holiday season
and are trying to recover and get back to “normal.”
But September is different. The weather gets a little more bearable (at least here in
the South) and kids start a new school year. You pull out your fall clothes, grab a

September Annual Review Appointments – People have different ways of doing annual review
appointments. You might schedule yours by renewal date or by last name. If doing last names, then September

prospects, and share your referral rewards news. Learn how to use email newsletters effectively here.
Social Media Posts – Social media is an easy way to build brand recognition in your local community. But it
only works if you do it consistently. I can even do this for you. Check out my daily social media posts for
Client Birthdays – Birthdays are a great time to market life insurance! And if you are a life agent or captive
agent, you are probably looking at a looming deadline for life insurance sales. Check out this post for
details on marketing life insurance on birthdays.
Life Insurance Awareness Month – September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. Put all that great free
marketing to use! Check out this post for flyers, videos, and more marketing materials.
Referral Rewards – Are you doing a monthly drawing? Don’t forget to snap a photo of your winner to include in
your email newsletter and social media posts!
And no good marketing plan works without a solid review of what you’re already doing! Take an hour to look at all of
your August reports.
Where did most of your sales come from?
Which staff member produced the most?
How can you take what works and do MORE of it?
Enjoy your Labor Day holiday and head back into the office tomorrow with a renewed energy for your agency and get
