When & What to Communicate to Clients During COVID-19

Video: What Kind of Communications Should You Send to Your Clients Now & How?

Suggested Strategy for COVID-19 Client Communications:

    • "How to Reach Us" Email

      • When to send it? NOW - Let your clients know how COVID-19 has affected any of your services.
        • If they have a claim or question, where do they go now? (how will this be handled?)
        • Can your clients still come to your office for appointments?
        • What is your contact information during this shutdown?
        • How can people still conduct appointments with you? Are remote meetings a possibility?
        • Are your hours going to be different?
    • Changes to Current Policies
      1. When to send it? 3 days - 1 week after the first email (as and changes occur to stay timely)
      2. Let clients know if there are any changes to policies, coverages, payment due dates, etc. from carriers due to COVID-19. (Check your latest ASNOA Advantage newsletter for a compilation of carrier updates during COVID-19.)
    • Essential Service Updates Clients Need Right Now (ONLY stick to relevant, genuine content that relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and its systemic economic effects.)

        • When to send it? Every week, then taper after one month to every other week, then taper after one month to every month, then taper after six months to every other month, and so forth
        • Communications should focus on key questions or problems your clients have right now. Appropriate topics include life insurance, health insurance, financial planning, risk management, cybersecurity, and business insurance.
