Get the Most Out of Your EZLynx Agency Website

Having an aesthetically pleasing website that also encompasses local SEO and fresh content is a must in the insurance industry.  Not just any old website will do, either. Your customers need to be able to recognize and find your business easily without navigating through a bunch of clutter. Our team at EZLynx takes it a step further with Agency Website packages and post-launch website management assistance.

Our packages range from having a good starter website with up to 5 pages, all the way to having up to 15 locally optimized pages with unique monthly blog content and so much more. You can choose which package is best for you and work with an EZLynx associate to complete basic information that will be incorporated in to your website.

There are numerous benefits included in our premium Gold Website package, and some of those may fly under the radar if you’re not 100% familiar with our offerings. Below we’ve highlighted some of our favorite features available through the Gold Website package.

Friendly associates

EZLynx is dedicated to making sure that your experience is seamless. We have friendly and knowledgeable associates who will be there to help you every step of the way. A website associate will get in contact with you after your sale is completed by a sales representative, and will be there to answer any questions you may have before and after your site has been launched.

Post-launch website assistance

After your website launches, a website analyst will reach out to you. Your website analyst is your post-launch website contact. They will be able to answer any questions you have regarding your website and will also be able to assist you with any changes you need to make. Five hours’ worth of updates per quarter are budgeted in to your package just in case you want to update your site, add a new page, or change your address.

Monthly blog content

Each new EZLynx Gold Website includes one unique blog article per month that is added directly to your Insurance Blog. If one blog per month isn’t up to your speed, we can provide you with your blog login information and instructions on how to post your own blog content.

AgentInsure exclusive listing

AgentInsure is an online quoting website owned by EZLynx. The website was created to bring you the convenience of the internet along with the security and free consultation of an insurance agent. We enlist all of our Gold Website agencies through AgentInsure to help generate additional leads.

Multilingual websites

With the EZLynx Gold Website package you have the option of having Google Translate installed on your website, allowing persons who speak any language to easily navigate your website. Additionally, we offer a Spanish Consumer Quoting rating engine that, while not included, can be purchased separately.

EZLynx Social & Local Reach

EZLynx Social Reach & EZLynx Local Reach are two completely different but absolutely important benefits in purchasing a Gold Website package. EZLynx Social Reach places your website in front of potential customers on Facebook, creating local brand awareness for your agency. EZLynx Local Reach is an online local listing program that helps generate additional relevant traffic to your website.

Optimized content for local search

Every paragraph on your website has been carefully looked over and optimized to have a better chance of being pulled in local search result queries. Additionally, each page on your website is equip with metadata information (that is not visible on your website itself, but on the backend) that helps guide the internet in to knowing more about your website, for a greater change of it being pulled in local search. Monthly blog articles are also written from a locally optimized perspective.

Mobile friendly

Have you ever visited a website from your mobile device that just didn’t look right? Maybe the images were too big or the text was too small. We’ve got that covered. Every EZLynx Agency Website is developed with a responsive feature unique to the device it is being used on, whether that is a phone, tablet, or computer.

Content management system

Some customers want to have the option to do it themselves, and our Content Management System allows them to do just that. Although not every component is editable from our Content Management System, if you have an address to change or a photo to add you can make those changes quickly and efficiently through this application without having to get an EZLynx associate involved.


Insurance Tech Trends for 2016

2016_insurance_trends_ezlynx

 

As the page turns in our calendars from 2015 to 2016, we want to recap some Insurance Tech Trends to look for in the year ahead of us. Technology is on the forefront of all things insurance, on both a consumer and agent level. Ensuring you are reaching your customers in the most effective way while keeping their information secure are two key business objectives to keep in mind when forecasting your business for the year to come. EZLynx has compiled a list of Insurance Tech Trends to watch for in 2016.


Local Optimization

With only 15% of Americans not using the internet, the odds are in your favor to make sure your agency is easily found online. Local optimization helps agents reach customers in their area. Google is (continuously) the most popular online search engine and it pulls in search results from locally optimized websites first. With your EZLynx Gold Agency Website package, we provide locally optimized content that is more likely to be found on Google when searching locally. In addition to locally optimizing you website, it is also important to focus on a local reach when writing blog articles.

Email Campaigns

How you reach your client base is important. Nowadays it seems like everyone has a smartphone attached to their hand, which means they are likely receiving texts and emails pretty regularly. With EZLynx Marketing Campaigns, you can reach your customers the way they prefer to be reached: by email or text. This not only builds customer loyalty, but helps improve retention while driving sales. You can reach your entire customer base with one personalized email, or narrow down your search to customers with a birthday in a certain month, customers in a certain area, or by which line of business the customer has purchased with your agency.

PPC Marketing

In certain lines of business, PPC Marketing can be a very effective tool. When you search Google for a local coffee joint, you’ll see advertisements to the right of the search results. These are PPC Ads. The client pays a fee each time someone clicks their ad, thus buying visits to your website versus receiving visits organically. In in the insurance industry, these advertisements might be costly but prove to be very effective in driving traffic to your website.

Accurate Analytics

Wouldn’t it be nice to see all of the important metrics of your business in one organized snapshot? With EZLynx Agency Pulse, you can do just that! The comprehensive report is part of our Management System and includes key metrics such as total annual premium, policy count, new business, agency retention, and carrier retention. The report identifies and tracks changes in your business so you don’t have to rummage through multiple reports and emails. The report generates weekly (is that correct) and is sent straight to your inbox.

Drones

Yes, drones. Drones may be an important tool in your toolbox. In April 2015, a Pennsylvania insurance company was the first to receive approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to test drones for claims use. By September 2015 the drone inspected a roof of a house that had filed a claim. With the maturation of imaging technology, the company owner confirms that the effort is worth the risk. If your agency is in the business of covering large amounts of land, homes, or other outdoor properties, a drone (and a drone pilot) may be a wise investment in your future.

Cybersecurity

Insurers around the United States are raising concern to tighten their company’s cybersecurity. At EZLynx, we take data security seriously. With the major breaches last year from Premera and Anthem, there is no doubt that there will be more announced this year. Finding the right level of security is pertinent to your future success. Investing your time and business with any EZLynx product guarantees you a certain level of security, one that is protected by remote servers in dedicated production environments.

 


How to Grow Your Insurance Agency Using Local SEO

How to Grow Your Insurance Agency Using Local SEO

In today’s world of smart phones, Twitter feeds, and geo-targeted advertising, a successful business marketing strategy must be optimized to identify local prospects. The cornerstone of a successful local marketing strategy requires effective search engine optimization (SEO). This is especially true for small insurance agencies. More insurance buyers are going online during the buying process to research their decision. Local search engine optimization is focused on providing results that are relevant to a searcher based on their current location.

For independent insurance agencies, this means that if a prospect in your area searches for “car insurance,” that your website appears at the top of the rankings, above national agencies, educational pieces, and news articles. Ensuring that your agency is at the top of local search engine results takes a multi-pronged strategy, but it can be accomplished successfully by completing the following steps.

Improve Keyword Relevancy

A successful SEO strategy should begin with keywords. SEO keywords are the terms your website is targeting. Research the keywords that are the most relevant to your industry and that will be the most effective in driving traffic to your site. Since search engines rank pages and not websites, each page of your website should include keywords that are specific to that page. Use your keywords frequently throughout your content, but be sure to use them naturally. Search engines can identify websites with unnatural keyword densities, which negatively impacts rankings. Be sure to also include location information throughout your content as part of your keyword strategy, such as the name of the city where your office is located.

Create Deep Content with Internal Links

An internal link connects one page of a website to a different page within the same site. For example, on your home owner’s insurance product page, include a few sentences in the copy about obtaining a quote, and link it to a “Visit our location” page to reinforce your local presence. From your user’s perspective, this strategy provides the opportunity to read more of your content and spend more time within your site. From a search engine’s perspective, internal links encourage the crawling of multiple pages to index more content, which in turn improves your ranking.

Improve the Visitor’s Experience

Search engine rankings are improved for websites with low “bounce rates” and longer “time-spent-on-site.” Your content should answer all of your prospect’s questions (such as where you are located). Search engines can tell how effectively your website accomplishes this by monitoring the time between when a prospect clicks on your search result and when they return to the search engine. If a prospect only stays on your site for a few seconds, this high bounce rate, or low time-spent-on-site, can hurt your rankings.

Maintain an Active Social Media Presence

Creating social media pages across multiple platforms will help to improve your organic search results. Create social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and continually update the pages with new content. Post information about community initiatives, new hires, industry news and trends, and product offers to your social media accounts and link to your website for the complete details.

Create a Google My Business Page

Google My Business allows companies of all sizes to create pages to promote their local business, which can be highly effective for small businesses looking to attract local customers. Google search engine rankings are improved for businesses that have verified Google My Business pages. Be sure your Google My Business page includes accurate information about your businesses, including your local address and phone number, and include a Google map of your location.

The Power of Social Validation

Positive customer testimonials, both within your website’s content and posted to third party sites, can enhance your search engine rankings. Ask trusted clients if you can include their testimonial and home town on your website, or ask them to review your agency on Google, Yelp or other such sites that aim to match customers with local, highly-rated companies.

Optimize Backlinks

Backlinks are links from other websites that point to your site, and they improve your search engine rankings. There are many opportunities to obtain backlinks from local partners. For example, get included on your local chamber of commerce website, or submit a scholarly article to your local online news outlet (e.g.: “How to Purchase First Time Flood Insurance in Tampa”). Links from these highly-ranked sites back to your website will not only give your agency local credibility, it will improve your local SEO.

Go Mobile

According to our own analytics, 20% of consumers are completing an insurance quote online using their mobile or tablet device, and an even larger percentage are using those devices to browse our agent websites. To ensure that these searchers can find your agency, and have a positive experience with your site once they get there, you will need either a mobile version of your website or a single responsive website. Either of these options will ensure that your website displays comfortably on any variety of mobile phone or tablet. Otherwise, if a prospect quickly leaves your mobile site because it is too difficult to navigate and read on their mobile device, your search engine rankings may suffer from high bounce rates.

Independent insurance agencies should not be intimidated by the mysterious and ever-changing algorithms of Google and other search engines. By implementing these simple strategies, your agency can improve its search engine visibility – allowing you to grow your business one click at a time.

Responsive Websites get a Better Response

EZLynx Agency WebsitesIt’s no secret that digital marketing plays a huge role for both consumers and agencies. In 2014, IIABA conducted a marketing study with shocking results – a staggering 50% of all insurance shoppers start their search through a mobile device. Clearly, it’s important to not only have a web presence, but a web presence that is optimized with a responsive, mobile-ready design.

For starters, if you don’t have a website at all, your customers and potential customers are simply not going to be able to find you.  Furthermore, with the latest mobile emphasis that Google is placing in their search results, if you don’t have a responsive website, you’ll potentially be missing out on 50% of insurance shoppers online! This is a common mistake agencies make, but luckily it’s one of the easiest to fix.

From the same IIABA study, over half of the consumers that visited an agent’s website from their mobile device immediately left if the site was not mobile friendly. If your website is not mobile responsive, consumers will quickly find a website that is.  Imagine if your local grocery store put all of their products on shelves that were out of reach.  Would you keep going there?

It’s no different online. At the end of the day, the agent that makes the insurance shopping experience as painless as possible will win the most new business. Simply making your website responsive could help retain this extra traffic your site is trying so hard to generate for you.

How many phone numbers and addresses has your agency had over the past 5 or 10 years? Over time agencies end up in multiple locations, with multiple ways to get in contact with them. The more ways someone can get in touch with you, the better, right? Not according to Google.  The search engine places a lot of value on providing accurate and official information on the first page of their search results. Thus, having your contact information consistent on multiple directories across the web helps search engines confirm where and how to locate your agency. This simple adjustment could mean the difference from just a few leads a month to multiple leads on a daily basis.

So, who knows your customers better than you? The best way to understand where your agency’s web presence stands, is to put yourself in your customer’s shoes. Get on a mobile device and see how easy it is to find yourself. How easy is it to get a quote or get in contact with your agency? Does it take seconds or minutes?  Is your website even mobile friendly?

Practical Online Strategies for Independent Insurance Agents

If you’re not a billion dollar company in our industry, your website is quite simply not going to come up first in the search results on a national basis for those coveted generic search terms like “auto quote” or “car insurance”. With that said, ignoring the online marketplace is not an option anymore. Even for those of you that are all about personal relationships and word of mouth (which is not a bad thing), there is now an expectation by consumers that all businesses have at least some kind of online presence. If nothing else, it has become an indicator of legitimacy – a consumer may not trust a business that doesn’t have a website. Thus the question becomes, how does a small business compete with the likes of Geico, Progressive, and Esurance when it comes to the online realm? An initial step in planning your online strategy should be to take note of the unique advantages of an independent agent. You’re local, you’re accessible, you’re informed, and you can provide a competitive advantage over a single direct writer in your ability to quote with several other carriers. Take these advantages and craft a practical search engine optimization and digital marketing strategy that can yield slow and steady gains for your agency online.

Step 1: Embrace Local

It’s already a major advantage for an independent agent, so the fact that Google is expending a lot of resources to include, and even favor, local listings in their search results plays right into your hands. Don’t forget that an effective online strategy is more than SEO. SEO will ensure that your website is built in a way that search engines can understand, and there are certain methods that a savvy website company can take advantage of to give you a little boost, but for the modern consumer it goes so far beyond traditional Google search results now. Just one example is location-based search. Consumers will think of things they need to do while they are already out and about. And what do we do? We whip out our smartphones and do a search for a nearby location that sells, as an example right off the top of my head, insurance. It’s not just a map of nearby locations anymore either – that was so 5 years ago. It now includes reviews, links, company details, and more. If you’re focused on the online market, you absolutely want to be included in the results for these kinds of searches. This means having your location consistently identified across countless online directory services. You should already have a social media presence for your agency, so you’ll also need to make sure your social media pages very clearly and accurately reference your location. Most consumers gain confidence by reading the opinions of their peers.  Encourage happy customers to give you a testimonial on your Google business listing.

Step 2: Be Accessible

Make it ridiculously easy for consumers to contact your agency. This means having contact forms on your website, quote forms, and your phone number on every page. If they are already your customer, it means providing easy ways to request changes, contact you with a quick question, and even access common documents like proof of insurance. Lastly, this means communicating with consumers in the way they prefer to communicate. From email to texting, if it can be used to communicate, chances are you will come across a consumer that wants to use it to talk to you. You can’t be accessible if you aren’t embracing mobile. The latest reporting continues to show that mobile usage for day-to-day web browsing is rapidly increasing. Your website, your consumer quoting portal, and your online customer service features should all be fully mobile-optimized. However, don’t fall into the trap of thinking your agency needs to have a mobile app. An app has to be installed from the app store of the device you are using, which is a huge deterrent in getting consumers to use it. More importantly, mobile apps don’t come up in search results on Google. Instead, focus on making sure your website can provide a positive user experience when being accessed from a mobile device.  Many websites, such as those created by EZLynx, can adjust automatically depending on the visitor’s screen size for a complete mobile-friendly experience. Paired with mobile-ready quoting and servicing solutions like EZLynx Consumer Quoting and Client Center, you’ll be ready to both quote and service consumers on any device.

Step 3: Share Your Knowledge

The internet is about communication. Websites, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter all have the sole purpose of making it easier and more fun to communicate with each other. Once upon a time, if someone had a question about insurance they would pick up the phone and call an insurance agent. While that does still happen, it has become a last resort for most people now. Whether they are asking the question on Twitter or doing a quick Google search, the first stop for most of us is the internet. Unless you’re actively working to make yourself available online, those consumers just found their answer from someone else. Be that someone else by watching and responding to insurance questions that are posted online. Make your website a repository of insurance knowledge by writing content that answers insurance questions. If nothing else, this will help establish trust between yourself and the reader by giving them unbiased answers to their questions. This is important if you hope to win the business of someone that has to choose between a highly recognized brand or a local insurance agent that doesn’t happen to have the budget to run yearly super bowl commercials like the other guys. This also has the added benefit of increasing the likelihood your website will be returned in search results. You may never attain a nationwide front page ranking for generalized search terms like “car insurance quotes” simply because of the sheer volume of websites out there trying to target those same terms. You are better off working to claim a top spot in search results for more specific questions and topics that you can share your expert opinion on.

Step 4: Ask for Help

All of these things are easy to do with our help. With everything required to manage the day to day responsibilities of an insurance agency, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish all of this. EZLynx Agency Websites is our insurance-centric solution to the online marketplace for our agents. However, no matter how you go about establishing your online presence, always approach it from the point of view of the consumer, and you can’t go wrong! Find out how we can help!

EZLynx Agency Websites: Understanding SEO

EZLynx NewsLynx - September 2012SEO has become a buzzword for anyone that is looking to make their website a key component in the success of their business.  And for the insurance industry, a website has quickly become a non-optional element of success, in large part because of the consumer expectations for 24/7 on-demand access to sales and service that has been nurtured in the insurance industry by the likes of Geico, Progressive, Esurance, and others.  Now that this Pandora’s Box has been opened, there is no going back.

If you’d prefer, we have a PDF version of the September NewsLynx available.

Consumer Shopping TrendsDespite the problems the transition to online shopping has created for some businesses, the internet has opened up more ways for a business to reach a potential customer than would ever have been possible with a brick and mortar storefront alone.

Search ResultsThe difficulty of tapping into that online marketplace is in the ongoing time commitment, and independent agents are simply too busy. When you run a quick search and find that perfect match on the first page of the results, there is much that happened behind the scenes that led to those particular sites being listed first.  Specifically, it was the efforts of the search engine in working to understand both the motivations of the searcher and the relevance of the websites in its index.

Understanding why those specific websites came up first, and figuring out how to have your site be among those chosen few, has sprung up an entire industry devoted to nothing else but to what is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

EZLynx understood the need that independent agents had in providing their prospects and customers with a rich online experience in order to remain competitive with the big direct writers, as well as keeping up with consumer online shopping trends in general.

EZLynx Customer ServiceOur consumer quoting and customer service portals were already best suited for being directly embedded on a website, so it was a small step for us to begin offering several agency website options to meet these very specific independent agency needs.

If you’re an independent agent, you have no doubt had to wade through an SEO marketing onslaught.  You will have heard about a hundred different “must do” things in order to have a successful website, all of which sound great in theory. In the doing, however, it becomes much more complicated when you also have an agency to run – that’s where EZLynx can help streamline your agency and increase your online presence.

Actual EZLynx Agency Website DataEZLynx has slowly grown our Agency Website team over the past few years, and our SEO strategy has remained consistent and proven: add value and convenience for the readers of your website.  We do this in ways that would be unrealistic and unsustainable for an agent trying to also handle the general day to day operations of running a small business.  Most notably, we use our insurance industry knowledge to speak the search engine’s language—content.  The search engines don’t see your beautifully designed website; all they see is the text content on your site. More specifically, they seek to determine how relevant your content is and how frequently it is updated.

EZLynx Agency Websites, as part of our Agency Suites, are the perfect agency-in-a-box solution for independent agents, providing websites built using SEO best practices that come with our powerful products fully integrated.

Consumers will experience a seamless experience—from information gathering, live quoting, to on-demand customer service.  For our advanced websites, we take SEO one step further by providing completely unique, relevant, and locally-focused content on a regular basis that feeds the search engines need to provide timely and relevant information to their users.  The online shopper today does their research first, so having a blog that is full of useful, informative, and unique insurance articles will bring in these savvy shoppers that are unwilling to give their business until they have the facts.

EZLynx Website OptimizationWe also work with you as partners, having meetings each quarter to review the overall performance of the website and to brainstorm ideas to continually improve the value of your website for the consumer.

The business of being a Search Engine is to ensure that the search results provided are relevant, timely, and useful.  When the goals of your website are in line with the goals of the search engines, slow and steady wins the race.
