What to include in your insurance agency text messages:

When messaging clients to follow up on their payments, address queries, send reminders, book meetings or send updates it is always best to first understand what people want and then address the same with a solution. This lets our clients know that you hear them and are there to help them. While doing this it is important to be concise and to the point.

When you are crisp with your messaging it allows readers to grasp information quickly without getting confused. You can use MMS messages to send media information too. To add structure to your messages you should have three elements in your message - greeting, core message and call to action.
