Here at SMS, we encourage agents to have a strong online presence. We don’t just mean having a website, either. Senior Marketing Specialists preaches being well-versed in Facebook and LinkedIn as well. We often receive push back, though. This is due to the misconception that seniors aren’t online and, therefore, it won’t matter if an agent puts work into their online presence. Today, we debunk this myth!

 

Are Seniors Really Online?

If your Aunt Ronda’s daily cat video updates aren’t proof enough that seniors frequent the internet, take a look at the following empirical data.

There are plenty of reasons you should be online, but one of the most important ones is that your potential clients are searching for your services! The consumer journey no longer starts with your first interaction with a client. It actually begins long before you even know that client exists, with an internet search. Before a client approaches you for help, they (or a family member) are researching coverage options online. Don’t get skipped over because you don’t have an active online presence!
