New advisor marketing toolkit in supports ad campaign
Marketing package features interactive resources and prospecting tools to reach clients
WATERLOO - Manulife has launched a suite of marketing tools to help advisors promote its unique Synergy insurance solution. The new marketing toolkit is designed to build off consumer awareness created by Manulife's new Synergy ad campaign and provides a variety of fresh and innovative ways to help advisors introduce Synergy to their clients.
The consumer campaign, which began on May 28, features a new television commercial that focuses on the key question: "If you can't cover the bills, who will?" The commercial depicts a number of hypothetical situations where children have stepped in to earn the family income because a parent was unable to work. This helps the viewer begin to question their own insurance coverage. A version of the television ad is available for viewing on the Manulife YouTube channel.
The advisor Synergy toolkit includes a video of the TV commercial and updated versions of the Synergy website and Synergy iPad app. It also features several new marketing materials such as customizable brochures, flyers, posters, radio scripts, prospecting letters, website content and sample ads. Using the kit, advisors have additional tools to inform clients of Synergy's unique 3-in-1 solution that bundles policies for disability, critical illness and life insurance in one convenient package.
"We launched Synergy a year ago because we saw a need for a simple money-saving solution to cover the real, everyday risks families face," said Paul Smith, Vice President, Marketing and Product Development, Individual Insurance. "We're very pleased with the response we've had for the product. To build on this initial success, our new advertising campaign and marketing toolkit will help support our advisors and expand their ability to communicate about Synergy with clients."
Advisors are encouraged to share an online version of the Synergy television ad or a link to the Synergy website with their clients. They can also use new marketing materials to run a campaign of their own, taking advantage of the added awareness and recognition of the consumer advertising.
"If advisors want to help their clients discover Synergy through interactive resources, they can use the Synergy website and iPad app, which include built-in risk and coverage calculators," added Smith. "We've also provided several options for advisors who want to run traditional campaigns to generate leads. We believe it's a great opportunity to capitalize on the added awareness of Synergy."
The consumer advertising campaign, which also includes print ads and a series of posts on Manulife's Guidebook Facebook page, runs through the summer.
