As 2009 quickly comes to a close, now is the time to develop your growth strategy for 2010! You can either stay with the status quo while your book of business dwindles, or you can use the Internet and a strong digital marketing strategy to help you FIND, SELL, and KEEP more customers profitably.
As I travel around the country meeting with agents just like you, I've found that procrastination is the main reason that agencies aren't growing in this down market. Yes, commissions are lower. Yes, the economy is challenged. However, as Zig Ziglar says, "Recession is between your ears."
The great news is you and your agency CAN BE recession-proof with the right tools, people, and processes in a down market by using the greatest digital marketing system in the world. The system includes everything from Search Engine Marketing and Optimization to a multi-media Virtual Insurance Office, automated multi-media status-driven Email Campaigns, Phone Campaigns, Newsletters, e-Newsletters, and more.
And the BEST part about it? Astonish Results has everything in place to double and triple the book of business for agencies who are aggressive and eager for this kind of growth. This system, however, is not a fit for agencies who are stuck in the old, traditional methods that are no longer effective in most industries, but especially insurance.
With the Astonish Results system, agencies are using the tools to fish where the fish are, and to act NOW to pro-actively market to the prospects at the right time with the right message to effectively build value in their agency - now and forever.
Agencies from East to West are seeing exponential growth by creating an entire system for their Social Networking, Blogging, Internet, and overall branding strategies leveraging the web where we know most people are shopping for everything from cars to houses to insurance.
Tony Allesandra, President of Insurance Solutions in Mission Viejo, California recently shared his success at the California Agents Alliance Annual board meeting. There he announced that in his first 90 days of using the Astonish Results system, Tony was able to increase his online revenue by 775%! Tony has transformed his agency and the way they are buying and selling insurance WHILE creating a sales-driven culture that is crystal clear. How has he done this? By the results and growth his agency has seen and the positive, motivated, vision-oriented team of people he has been able to build within his agency walls.
