What it’s like to work with an insurance copywriter?
Updated: Jan 26
What does an insurance copywriter do?
I write content for insurers and insurance brokers, who want to find better and more engaging ways to communicate with their audience, and I do this because insurance is what I know, having worked in the industry for 20 years, I like to think I know a bit about writing and insurance, plus it saves my clients time as they don’t have to teach me insurance!
Why do I write insurance content?
I also know there is more we can do as an industry to showcase what we do and demonstrate to customers the skills we have, the passion we have for the work we do, and the importance insurance plays in people’s lives and wider society, but we need to do that in a way which helps bridge the gap between our knowledge and our customers.
Why explaining what you do is important
I believe passionately that there is great power in sharing what it feels like work with someone, setting out the process steps and what happens at each stage can give potential clients the reassurance they need and the confidence to get in touch with you.
Top tip: This is true for insurance brokers and insurers and provides a great piece of core content that you can use as a blog, article, or text post on social media, podcast, or video.
What it’s like to work with an insurance copywriter?
Flipping brilliant! I would say that, wouldn’t I? I am approachable, friendly, and professional. I enjoy what I do, and I hope that comes through in my work and my approach to helping you get the results you want from the work we do together.
I’m methodical and love a spreadsheet, but we’ll start with a chat about what you’re looking for, who you’re writing for, and what you want to achieve, brainstorm some ideas, pick the topics, agree the frequency, schedule and deadlines which will become the order of work, we agree the costs and how we will review and edit each piece as we go along.
I know you’re busy so I try not to take up as little of your time as possible, but the early stages are more labour intensive as I understand your tone of voice, writing, and brand style but this early investment means I can get on with the work and leave you to focus on business as usual.
Here’s what former client Sara Joy has to say about working with me:
"I had the pleasure to work with Catherine over a 9-month period. As we started out on our inbound content marketing journey, we needed someone that understood Insurance and SMEs. Catherine created some engaging content for us which achieved an average 46% email open rate & 6.9% click-through - 119% higher than the industry average. Catherine is easy to work with, she works to agreed timelines and is very professional. She's also happy to be given a brief with target keywords, some inspiration links, and a brief summary & run with it. I'd recommend her as part of your extended team." - Sarah Joy, Marketing Executive.
And Simon Taylor, Managing Director at Get Indemnity:
"I just want to say a big thank you to Catherine France for all your help in delivering on our digital content strategy. Having a copywriter with insurance experience makes such a difference in producing thoughtful and insightful pieces, with no need for rewrites!!"
