The Business Value of Social Media In Insurance

LIVE Webinar from Strategy Meets Action and SAS

Are you sitting on the sidelines of the social media blitz?

Industry and technology pros agree that insurers can't afford to stay out of the game. Social media isn't just a fad, it's critical to building your brand, connecting with customers and gathering information you can't find anywhere else.

In this one-hour live webinar, experts from Strategy Meets Action (SMA) and SAS will explore specific areas of promise for insurers who take the critical step of analyzing social media activity, including:

  • Identifying marketplace opportunities.
  • Executing plans to capitalize on those opportunities.
  • Using social media across the value chain.
  • And more!
