Insurance Agents and leads have numerous conversations before finalizing policy details. In an ideal scenario, these conversations are the key to converting a lead to a customer. But in reality, insurance agents are struggling to even contact leads. This is because the insurance industry continues to use traditional methods of communication. Insurance agents rely on cold calling and emailing to contact prospects. Both these methods have proven ineffective in recent times due to a variety of reasons. One of the most prominent reasons is the drastic change in communication preferences. Prospects, today, expect to interact with businesses via flexible and convenient communication channels. The extensive use of anti-spam solutions is another reason for declining contact rates. These solutions restrict agents from reaching out to the leads. As a result, sales agents end up spending significant amounts of time trying to contact leads. This reduces their productivity and hurts their morale.
