Why social media? Successful businesses build trust. With millions of potential customers on social media, there’s plenty of opportunity to represent Aflac’s trusted brand online.
We encourage you to use social media to build your brand, recruit new agents and talk about insurance coverage. However, you should never solicit Aflac sales or provide benefit or plan information.
Whether you're a broker or a member of our field force, you may want to leverage social for selling, recruiting and networking. Please refer to the Aflac Duck Feed for compliance- and HQ-approved content to help you connect with customers and assist with both recruiting and sales efforts.
