It’s time for results.

I am willing to bet that your agency has tried most of the available marketing approaches – print, email, banners, text ads, event sponsorships, on-site marketing, social media, SEO, etc. 

I am also willing to bet that you are not sure what worked (gave you the best results). But, if you are like most marketers you probably will say that Email Marketing is perhaps the most effective (cost/benefit wise). 

While we help hundreds of agencies with our multi-disciplinary approach (all of the available digital marketing tactics), let’s talk about the most relatable – email marketing.

Why is it So Difficult to Measure Marketing ROI?

Author SherriCarroll , 6/6/2016
ROI is simple right? Measure your costs (investment), measure your revenue (Return). ROI = Return/Investment.

 The problem many of our clients were facing, before partnering with CompleteMarkets, was measuring Marketing ROI since it is not an exact science. In  practice, marketing is a dynamic activity which requires constant fine-tuning, trying new approaches and doubling down when something appears to be working.  

We understand that marketing is a crucial step in generating Sales. Without Sales, your company will fail. Without Marketing, your Sales will fail.  

If you cannot measure your Marketing ROI accurately and comprehensively then how do you know which marketing efforts are prosperous or, which ones are failing and losing your company valuable time, dollars and sales?

 Many marketers and agency owners do not have a good handle on costs therefore they cannot have a good read on their Marketing ROI. They either do not have enough time to keep track of all this, or the agency is too departmentalized (big) to consolidate these costs.

 Most agencies will attempt to measure at the end of the year, and use a simple yardstick – net profit. 

 “Did we grow?”; Did we make money?”; “How do you feel this initiative did?”.  In the end all their measurements of ROI turn out to be just an educated guess.  

 At CompleteMarkets we take the guess work out of measuring ROI making your marketing campaigns easier, more comprehensible and ultimately more successful for your company! 

 We measure every submission (estimated premium), every lead and all activity by campaign. You can assign a ‘value’ to each activity we report to you and end up with a pretty good estimate on the value you are getting for your marketing efforts.  

 This is why large companies with dedicated marketing teams and small agencies without an in-house marketing team love us!

 Take a look at what some of our clients are saying about their ROI after partnering with us on our case studies page. 

You will find advertisers, small and large, single product and multiple, single state and nationwide, accepting one-off business or only large premium books of business.  

We adapt our approach to your needs and goals.

 Why not get in touch? Let’s discuss how we can help your agency get more than just an educated guess on its Marketing ROI.

CompleteMarkets 2016 Q1 Recap

Author SherriCarroll , 4/14/2016
Hello Everyone! 

We hope that the first few months of this year have been as busy and productive for you, and your agency, as they have been for us.

Here is a recap of the last few months from our team at CompleteMarkets.

In December we released a list of technology enhancements to our platform. They include –

  • Optimized, Enhanced and Consolidated Campaign Reporting
  • Submission Categorization & Notifications – that include full ACORD forms.
  • Direct Reply to Agent Submissions/Leads - automatically tracked in your submission dashboard. 

In January we released our annual top market categories, adding up to an estimated $5.7B of premium that originated on our platform. Here is a list of our top markets in 2015.

In February we put together a comprehensive analysis of our competitive landscape and showcased why and how we are leading the field in insurance product distribution.

In March, based on requests from some of our advertisers and partners, we released a research paper on ‘Email Marketing in the insurance industry’. 

Thank you for all the wonderful feedback and response we got in Q1!

We look forward to a productive and successful Q2, and wish you and your team the very best. If you think we can help you with retail distribution, please get in touch.

Sincerely, 
Sherri  Carroll,  Business Development Executive

Comparatively Speaking: CompleteMarkets is in a "Category of One."

Author SherriCarroll , 2/8/2016
Wholesalers and carriers often ask me a simple question: “How is CompleteMarkets different than any other lead provider?”

My answer, “Quite frankly, a lot!” 

We are not just a lead provider, we are a marketing partner! 

I then go on to explain our similarities and our differences – which you can review here.

Clearly, we are in a ‘category of one.' No one else quite offers the multi-level expertise we bring to the table. But, I do think it is about more than just features, tools and expertise.

Our team brings an approach to the relationship that sets us apart – we treat our clients as partners. We quickly get vested in trying to understand their problems and finding effective solutions to their marketing, distribution and branding challenges.

We then measure how we are doing every day and compare notes with our clients regularly. Then, as a team, we figure out how to do better and whether to pivot or persevere.

So, it isn’t just the fact that we provide more services than our competition but it is a good start. You can take a look at how we stack up against our competition here.

$5.7B in estimated premium flowing through CompleteMarkets platform in 2015!

Author SherriCarroll , 1/25/2016
Happy New Year!

2015 was a busy and productive year for us. In 2015, we saw an estimated $5.7B originate or move through our CompleteMarkets platform, a significant increase from the year before – underlining the fact that digital product distribution is picking up momentum.

We accomplished quite a bit, as it relates to innovation and helping our clients with product distribution: 
  • Updated our email campaign technology to deliver more email to the inbox.
  • Upgraded our reporting – simplified, concise and powerful.
  • We now clearly categorize the different types of leads and submissions we send you. This helps you with routing the submissions to underwriting departments. This also helps underwriters prioritize their responses based on premium size and urgency.
  • We are now paying special attention to submissions with an estimated premium of over $10k. We call the agent and connect them to your marketing team or, in many cases to the underwriting team. The positive response to this approach, on both sides has been very encouraging. 
  • In 2016, we are moving towards sending email campaigns only to those agents and brokers that actually write that line of business – think targeted email marketing.
The net result of these and other innovations – thousands more happy agents and brokers; more premium flowing through our platform and more data for us to analyze with the goal to provide more value to our valuable clients – insurance wholesalers and marketers needing to connect with the retail insurance agent.
