Insuring your marketing and media company
You’ve earned your reputation by being exceptional at what you do, but it’s impossible to control everything, and a mistake by you or an employee could lead to a seriously unhappy client. Communication breakdowns can also cost you a lot of time and money and if a client suffers reputational damage or financial loss, rightly or wrongly, they could try to sue you. Hiscox can tailor your business insurance package to protect your valuable equipment and business premises and help with any legal action too.
Why you need insurance in the marketing and media industry
You could cite incorrect facts in a content marketing campaign and damage your client’s reputation. Or a misinterpreted brief could mean you have to go back to the storyboard with an advert, delaying progress for a brand you’re working with. Sometimes you can’t even pinpoint how or why a mistake happened, but if you find yourself facing a claim of negligence, we’ll be there to help cover the cost.
Producing anything creative takes a lot of time and energy, and it can be a very complex process. It’s not uncommon for things to get overlooked, for example, you may forget to credit some music you used in a video, or a photograph used for a social media campaign. If you’re client is sued for breach of copyright, it’s highly likely they’ll hold you liable and bring their own claim against you. If they do, we’ll pay for the cost of defending or settling it.
To get the best results for your clients you need to get to know them, which often means accessing and holding confidential information. If it gets into the wrong hands, you could be facing serious consequences. It only takes a second to send an email to the wrong mailing list, and you need to consider the threat of cyber attacks too. Our cyber and data risks insurance covers you in the event of a data breach, keeping the damage to your business to a minimum.
