The Mobile Explosion

According to a 2013 study by ComScore, the evolution of mobile devices has reached new heights with more than 129 million Americans carrying smartphone devices. That number is expected to increase by 40 percent over the next three years – a change that is sure to further fuel the popularity of mobile search.

Currently, desktop Internet searches only barely edge out mobile web searches in popularity among Americans. But in December 2012, CNET reported that a year-end Internet trends report delivered at Stanford University showed that mobile web is gaining fast on desktop Internet traffic, and in some places it has already surpassed it.

What Higher Mobile Search Means for Insurance Agencies

The number-one reason web browsers visit an insurance agency’s site for the first time is to obtain insurance quotes. It is no secret that consumers have acquired insurance quotes online for many years, but the number of those online quotes requested via mobile web devices has steadily increased month by month. Mobile searches for insurance quotes using smartphones and tablet devices are at an all-time high and are only expected to grow higher.

But despite requests for on-demand insurance quotes, Internet users accessing from smartphones and tablets want to get a quote quickly without having to zoom, pinch and pan the screen to view and enter information. In fact, consumers are becoming increasingly impatient with websites and even mobile applications that are not optimized enough for their favorite devices. Slow-to-load pages or pages that are not simplified for mobile devices are left for competitors with faster and more navigation-friendly sites.

Cutting-edge features like EZLynx Consumer Quoting mobile ensure that independent insurance agencies can edge out the competition and avoid overlooking such a pertinent part of the insurance market. After all, insurance agencies cannot convert traffic if they don’t have any.

Texas Agent Touts ROI Due to EZLynx

Flower Mound, TX, November 17, 2009 – When you’ve been in the business for more than three decades, it could be difficult to make the adjustment to today’s drastic industry changes. Customers know enough about insurance to be dangerous, and instead of looking for insurance in the phone book, they search endlessly online. Independent agencies are being outspent in advertising by companies with deep pockets as well. How do you grow your business, maintain a website, advertise, retain current customers, and find an hour or two to hit the green? An agent has priorities!

Tommy Thompson, President of Southwest Insurance Marketing Group, feels confident his agency has the formula down to a science. “We don’t wait for the business to come to us,” says Thompson. Southwest spent time building name recognition in their community and surrounding areas through multiple channels. After several months of creating their website, the agency strategically added their website link to the bottom of their email signatures to be included with each new email. It didn’t matter if the email was directed to a customer, family member, or friend. Every email was an opportunity to expose the Southwest website and attract new business. “Our website is the path of least resistance. Customers these days are not always eager to talk to you on the phone. They can check out the agency website and receive a quote (CPLive®) without feeling like they are being sold to,” explained Thompson. “If they are really interested, the applicant will respond to the email or phone call when we follow up with their quote request.”

Although it took months to set up the agency website, Thompson takes pride in this investment. Southwest easily spent $10,000 a year on print yellow page ads before creating their site, and have already seen valuable return. “People think it comes down to spending money, but it is really important to have a strategy that will work in the current market,” Thompson advises.

Southwest will not work with certain independent companies that write direct to consumers because it believes they will take business from independent agents. Thompson did not mention them by name, but says, “This is a tough business.” There are other companies out there that are driving independent agents out of business. It is hard to develop a sense of community when independent agents are essentially competing amongst themselves for new customers. Understanding the complexities of the insurance industry helps the agency make informed decisions about managing their business.

“We are out of the order-taking business. We used to spend a great deal of time running multiple quotes for customers who were not really ready to purchase a policy. My team and I can now focus on interested applicants while other consumers can use my CPLive® (on the website) to generate quotes.” With updated tools to efficiently manage his business, the Southwest team spends most of its time utilizing their expertise of insurance consultation and providing excellent customer service to his clients. For Thompson, the reward of being an agent is being able to educate the consumer on the value of protecting their family through effective coverage. “The agent is a critical piece of the puzzle when purchasing a policy. How can an agent focus on addressing customer needs when they are chasing down customers who are just shopping for insurance?”

Southwest proudly touts its 90% customer retention, refined website, and search engine optimization plan. “Competitive companies with great technology tend to last much longer than those who don’t adapt to new technology tools.” Thompson experienced the transition from 1970’s to the new millennium, when agents went door to door to sell policies and the extensive time spent on the phone trying to make a sale. “Technology has evolved and I understand the huge role that insurance software and automation has played in our agency.” He feels that utilizing EZLynx® and its live quoting feature for agency websites (CPLive®) makes an agent’s life easier. The independent insurance agent market has gone down in Texas and Thompson attributes his success to maximizing the best insurance software tools available to make his business run smoothly. He has done something right; not just once, but many times over the last thirty eight years. You won’t see him left in cyber dust.
