6. Keep It Real

The Progressive debacle clearly shows the benefit of a having a damage control plan in place when there’s a fall from “socialsphere” grace. From a brand and reputation perspective, the main take away is to ensure all social communications are authentic and personal.

Social is all about authenticity of voice and engaging at a personal level with your audience, and other insurance companies should take note for their social strategies.
