PROGRAMME OVERVIEW:
As the world is gone digital in the market place, the Internet has dramatically transformed the behavior of financial services consumers.

The need for every insurance company in Nigeria to make core transformations in marketing strategy and operations to power growth through digital advantage can no longer be over-emphasised.

Digital marketing is no longer about merely adding online channels to the media mix; it is about integrating digital into all facets of marketing. Digital marketing enables an insurance business to increase their customer base, promote reliability, efficiency and value.

With an integrated digital marketing and services delivery strategy, the insuring public could easily buy and pay for insurance products from any part of the country and beyond.

This program is designed for insurers and brokers, so that marketing staff learn and take advantage of digital skills and tools to promote their business.

The learning will empower insurance operators to be able to increase awareness on the benefits of insurance by making their products more accessible to the insuring public through the various digital channels.

This strategy will result in sales and revenue growth, increased insurance penetration and improved insurance GDP contribution to the national economy. The workshop is focused on what is very essential for insurers and brokers and their business.

In two full day intensive hands-on practical oriented digital marketing class, you and your team can learn what is most critical for your business in today’s digital economy.
