(Top Image BEFORE) This is the website and logo that the clients designed themselves. Every person at this large, national insurance brokerage prepared their own sales materials any way they wanted to—there was no consistency. This process could not compete with the well-designed marketing programs of their competitors and made the company look amateurish. The blue website below was made by the clients using a template at a hosting service.
“After” The New Marketing Program
My approach to this collateral program and branding platform was to develop a brand signature based on emphasizing several key words throughout all materials (expertise, stability, trust, and dedication). The promise behind the brand was to deal with one single person for the life of the account. Each person profiled had been at the company more than 10 years and was a partner. The brand is built on one-to-one relationships. Full-length casual photos were taken of each partner and I wrote a very warm note to be included with every sales packet emphasizing personalized attention.
