Social media in today’s world is all consuming, it’s simply everywhere, whether you’re on your desktop or mobile phone, it’s literally a click away.
One of the most popular platforms, especially for professionals, is LinkedIn
Here at Ascend we love to use LinkedIn not to only to stay in touch with our clients but to also engage and market insurers.
You may not know about them but LinkedIn Groups are the perfect place to meet like-minded people and fellow industry professionals, in Hootsuite’s words:
“LinkedIn Groups are hubs on LinkedIn which provide a ‘place for professionals in the same industry or with similar interests to share content, find answers, post and view jobs, make business contacts, and establish themselves as industry experts.’”
Now, if you’re in the industry, or you want to find out a bit more about insurers and how they work than these LinkedIn groups will be perfect for you.
Without further ado, here are the best insurance LinkedIn Groups.
With a staggering 180,000+ members, Insurance Professionals is the biggest group on our list and touts itself on being “the largest and most active spam-free insurance group on LinkedIn.”
It is also one of the earliest insurance groups to pop up on the network, founded all the way back in 2007. It is open to insurance industry professionals of all types, including those in annuities, claims professionals, and home office executives.
