Health Insurance Facebook Ads
I am going to give you some points to keep in mind while running ads related to Health Insurance. These will help you attract viewers to your ad copy and can lead them to the landing page. Here it is –
1. Eye-Catching Visuals
Try to include a picture of a person that relates to your demographic chosen. This will make your ad more appealing and relevant to them. A photo of a family helps people to relate more and take action. The idea is to make it personal and visuals do it at first sight only. Before the audience even reading the text
2. An Offer That Can’t Be Ignored
Scrolling down their feeds. Ads’ motive is to stop people and tell them about our business. To ensure this happening the headline of the ad copy should be making an offer. Giving an offer helps people stop and take action. The use of Actionable verbs and urgency of the offer can also be helpful.
The name of your Insurance should appear 3 – 4 times in the ad. This helps with awareness. As people will be more likely to remember the name and when next time you will target them. They will be trusting and will majorly take action. As people buy from people they know, like, and trust.
4. Call to Action for Mobile
40% of mobile users expect insurance agents to be as near as 3 miles of radius to them. Using a “Call Now” button in your Local Awareness Ads is also a simple and effective trick. Now you get the calls directly and have person-to-person communication with them.
5. Hassle-Free Experience
People these days don’t have much patience, and your ad should recognize that. A hassle-free experience at the landing page. So that they can quickly register themselves.
Health Insurance Facebook Ads for Agents
Use Interests and Behaviors to Target Your Ads
This right here will help you to niche down your ad targeting. The more the ad is shown to the “right people” is more beneficial than when shown to a random audience of masses. Interests of people who are looking into buying insurance can be helpful for you to target them.
If you have your audience already with you. You can upload it on Facebook. This helps you to build a Lookalike for your existing audience. They will be having similar Interests and Behaviors as your audience. This helps target the right people.
If you show just the ad of your business without any Call to Action added. If an ad is seen by customers around 4-5 times. They are likely to have trust in you and will make a buy if made an offer. This feature of Facebook ads under “Brand Awareness” increases ad recall by placing ads in Feed and Stories.
Why try a single ad when you have an option to show different versions of the same ad. The benefits you ask? You can know what kind of visuals and text is engaging people. It will also be a great help for the next time. Test your Ad copy with A/B testing and choose the date with the highest click-through rate.
But REMEMBER do not completely change your ad. Focus on one or two changes that will help assess which one is working.
With many new features Chatbots are helpful for people advertising. As we all know, you cannot always be online at the same time as your customers. In the case of Insurance Agents, people expect instant gratification. As soon as they fill in their details, chatbots can help you to keep up with the customers until you take back the control. It is an optional feature but it helps to keep your lead happy on quick service.

The main part that will make your customer stop to look at what you are providing while scrolling their feed. So make it look personal. The image should be a person or person smiling. It can be a funny image if you want to try out new things.
To make an offer compelling to direct customers to the Landing page. It should be irresistible and creates urgency. Keep it short and bold. Do not write too many characters that the person is not even interested to see your offer. No matter how eye-catching the visuals.
It is all up to you to set the budget of your ad but let us start with a minimum budget that can be spent in a week. A considerable time of showing ads helps to get the worth of every dollar spent.

Health Insurance Facebook Ads Examples
Best Health Insurance Facebook Ads –
These are some of the best Insurance Ad examples and let us know why they are?
1. Small Business Alert Network
This ad shows a smiling couple. Remember the point of smiling photos. Yes, this one is related to the same. These kinds of ads capture our eyes while scrolling down our feed.
2. Conrad Health Insurance
This ad shows reviews and that is why it catches the attention of the user. Also, they have made this ad niche down for Truck Drivers. The use of emojis in the content makes it look more personal. Giving a chat support option also makes this ad amazing.
3. Healthnetco Insurance Agency
A photo of a family is warm and welcoming to the user to stop by. Using such images in your ad is extremely beneficial. With an offer hard to resist. This ad is also a good ad you can model to run your ads.
4. Health Insurance Ninja
This was a really funny and compelling ad copy I saw. It shows why health insurance matters and what you should do. It is a video ad and these are helpful. They are the most engaging ones. Over the last few years, these ads have shown more engagement than other types of ads.
(click on the image to see the ad)
5. Healthnetco Insurance Agency
This is another most engaging ad visual. Carousel Ads have been performing well over the past few years after the video ads. You can show different plans and quotes with different images.
6. WPS Health Insurance
This ad shows a picture of an old age couple. They may be checking out the insurance plan for themselves. WPS played around made it link to their webinar. If one doesn’t know about ads. They will educate you. You too have to play with ads in such a way.
CTA ( We have a handled ads and we have bring results too. We can incorporate all the points and can run amazing ads but you are not mailing us at —-)
Health Insurance Facebook Ads Don’ts –
Some ads don’ts help you to have better ads and clearer messages. Most important not doing these will help you to stop the customer and look at your ad.
1. Healthnetco Insurance Agency
This ad is great with visuals and when you will be scrolling. This can be one of the ads which will catch your eye (if you fall in these three categories). But the main problem is that the content written is too long and not engaging. The use of emojis and line breaks could’ve helped. Also keeping the word limit short would’ve worked.
2. Easy Affordable Health Insurance
This ad is also the same as the previous example. The visual might have stopped you. But such a long content. People do not have time for it. Keep it short and concise.
3. IGH Insurance
This ad copy lacks in Call to action placement. If you want someone to do something specific, it should generally go in the headline. Headlines grab our attention. Overall, this ad is a bit jumbled up with no clear message and no clear ask.
4. Insured American Family
A visual matters in an ad. This ad does not show any effort in making the ad creative. Just one line and done. You have to put some work in and make creatives with photos. Follow the tips given above.
5. National Consumer Alert Network
Now, this ad is the opposite of the first example I gave of Ad Don’ts. This ad has great content with stats and compelling offers. But the visual is not so attractive. It can be similar to News Channel Posts and that is why you won’t be viewed.
6. Health Plans
With a short link in content and an offer made with the least amount of words. This is also a great example. But using a visual which is too serious and at which no one wants to engage is used. An ambulance can surely depict relation to health. But as a health insurance advertisement. We should use happy faces and better visuals.
