Over the last two years, we’ve heard these words uttered hundreds of times, “hey, we heard Dan Dakich talking about you on his radio show”.  Although this comes as a surprise to many, it is anything but for us… We have insured Dan for two years now and are proud to represent him and his families’ insurance needs. We approached Dan back in 2011 in hopes of having an opportunity to work with him. We quoted his auto insurance and saved him $150 per year. He later got back with us and decided not only to take the policy we offered him, but also offered to advertise with us during his talk radio show everyday from 12 pm to 3 pm on 1070 the Fan in Indianapolis. This has been GREAT for us recently! As Dan’s name continues to grow and his show continues to gain popularity, our name continues to grow and reach more of his listeners. We believe Dan’s “stock” will continue to rise due to his sharp sports knowledge and no-nonsense attitude.  He also has an interesting way of providing insight into the nuances of the sports world, and he does so with such a great sense of humor.  Here’s an example of that, as he discusses the Indiana Pacers vs. the Miami Heat in a 2012 Playoff Game.

Dan has also grown quite a following on twitter, @dandakich.  He routinely answers his critics with the same sharp toungue people have grown to love through his radio show. He’s a great follow, and it is evidenced by the drones of followers he has gained since the beginning of his show.  Dan has started to gain a broader fan base due to his work with ESPN. Dan is a broadcast contributer to ESPN and mostly works Big Ten games during the College Basketball season.  Here is a short clip of him responding to a fan’s sign during a telecast on ESPN.

In this clip, he is working with Mike Tirico.  The two of them together have become quite a pairing and we anticipate Dan working with Mike for a long time to come. Dan consistently does live reads for Steffey Insurance and is about to start running a campaign for us soon. There will be two parts to this new campaign: Firstly, anyone who “Likes” us on Facebook will automatically be entered into our annual iPad drawing.  This December, 2013, we will be drawing a name from our followers on Facebook to give a FREE iPad to.  It is our way of giving back to our customers and saying thank you!  Remember, you do not have to be a customer to enter the drawing, just like us on FACEBOOK!

Secondly, Dan will also be running the “Dan Dakich Sent Me” campaign.  This will be available to all visitors of our website. When you visit our website, you will notice the quote submission section on the right-hand side of the homepage.  All you have to do is fill out the quote submission, click what type of insurance you’d like a quote for, and also click “Dan Dakich Sent Me!” before submitting.  Once we quote your insurance you will automatically receive a $10 gas card from Steffey Insurance. There is no commitment to buy insurance from us, all that is needed for the gas card is to allow us to quote your insurance.  this is a nice way for us to gauge the effects of our advertising with Dan Dakich and gauge the engagement and activeness of his audience.

Dan will be advertising both of these campaigns starting April, 2013.  We are hoping for great results! In closing, this was just an opportunity to explain our relationship with Dan Dakich and also afford us the opportunity to announce our new campaigns which have now begun.  Thank you for your visiting our site!  Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you!
