10 Blog Topics for August

We are back with August blog topics! As the summer continues on and the sun continues to shine, it may be hard to sit down and write a blog post. Instead of sitting at your desk, why not take your laptop outdoors and blog on the porch or patio? Wherever you choose to blog, it should be pretty easy with the interesting topics that follow!

#1: August is National Eye Exam Month. If your agency specializes in health insurance solutions, this is a great topic to tackle. You can offer eye safety, reasons to visit an eye doctor, and more.

#2: The first week of August is National Simplify your Life Week. Write up a fun post listing tips and ways to simplify life at home. If you want to, you could find a way to tie in home insurance.

#3: The second week of August is National Smile Week! There are plenty of benefits to smiling… health insurance post alert!

#4: Many of your clients may have children going back to college soon. You may want to remind them to check-in on his or her auto insurance. Depending on the situation, he or she may be able to receive a low mileage discount.

#5: It’s Romance Awareness Month! This makes for a great blog post: Prove your love to your loved ones by purchasing a life insurance policy.

#6: August 9th is National Book Lover’s Day. Have each agent in your agency write a quick summary (100 words or less) about their favorite book and why they recommend it! This is fun for the whole office and does not require just ONE writer!

#7: August 21st is Senior Citizen’s Day. Take this time to write a post about senior citizen and retirement savings when it comes to policies (if you offer such discounts.)

#8: AUGUST CHALLENGE: Create a VIDEO BLOG on Youtube! This can be an agency effort. Choose a topic, whether you want to share agency news, explain a specific policy or answer a FAQ. Once you create the video, upload to your blog and share on social media pages, too.

#9: The last week of August (25-31) is Be Kind to Humankind Week.

#10: As the month of August comes to a close, you may want to offer tips to store away summer toys and gadgets, such as watercrafts, jet skis, motorcycles and more.

Now that you have 10 topics at your fingertips, it is time to put those fingers to work! Start blogging today for astonishing results!

  2. Hey Bianca , I have been writing about Senior Life Insurance from last month. What do you think about its potentiality? I am confused about how to do marketing. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    • Ahmed,

      I think senior life insurance is a great topic and you can do a lot with it. Since your audience is “senior,” I would stick to informational content. You can answer FAQs each week, or even a “Top 10 Reasons Why You Need Senior Life Insurance.” The more clear, simple, and informational, the better. Once you write a blog post, always be sure to post it on your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or any other social sites you may have. Spread the word!

      Good luck and I hope this helps :)
