Lead Generation Campaign for Insurtech

http://www.buyanyinsurance.com

Created paid social media and search campaigns that generated more than a hundred thousand B2C leads for an average cost per lead of $4 in one year.

BuyAnyInsurance is an emerging insurtech platform based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Recently, it was acquired by a global insurance brokerage firm due to its good position in the market. Its business services are car, health, and travel insurance for its customers, with a primary focus on car insurance. The company has taken an agile approach to its growth since its founding in 2018. It achieved an ROI of 13 points on average in the second year of our marketing campaigns.

Marketing Automation Using Chatbots

Reduced the human resources input by 1/4 by automating customer support on Meta and the website using ManyChat and Intercom chatbot solutions.

Chatbots can automate the most frequently asked questions and trigger an action in response to the users' activity. I curated the content and implemented the solution to engage users while they were on the website on a specific landing page or action. We qualified more leads without human input, which was the case before.

I regularly curated the content to create organic user engagement. Within one year, I accomplished a milestone in capturing the attention of 50+ thousand potential buyers on Facebook.
