Q: Are the calculators easy-to-use?
A: If you can put numbers in an Excel spreadsheet, you can use this tool to enter your own data and create "what if" data scenarios that are specific to your insurance agency.
The tool will take your data and adjust factors to reveal opportunities for improved retention, increased sales goals and account-rounding activities (for up to the next 5 years).
Since results from these calculator tools are not static, agencies can create “what if” scenarios and improve their bottom-line results by adjusting factors including improved retention, increased sales goals and ramping up account-rounding activities.
Q: Then what?
A: Agencies are then offered three turn-key approaches.for use in their own agencies.
(1) The first approach, entitled “Asking Customers The Right Questions” is built on a proven strategy successful agencies are already using to enhance both growth and profitability.
(2) The second turn key approach.focuses on both retention and lead generation. It is the “Claim Alert Lead Program” and directed towards an agency’s current homeowners clients.
(3) The third turn-key deliverable tool, “Conducting a Young Driver Seminar” is designed to help enhance an agency’s overall image not only with their current customers, but potentially, with everyone in their community.
Each of these approaches is comprehensive and includes a series of guides and step-by-step instructions for implementation by an agency.
