Titled “Game Changers,” the column’s focus was on how “Marketing Automation Can Help Build Lasting Relationships with Insurance Agents”
Centric Consulting’s Sean Sweeney drafted a column for the January/February issue of ITA Pro, a magazine for members of the Insurance Technology Association.
In the column, Sean states “with the right approach to marketing automation, your company can attract top-selling agents, and keep them committed in a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.”
Below is an excerpt from the column:

In addition, 80 percent of marketing automation users saw their number of leads increase, and 77 percent saw their number of conversions increase.Innovative marketing automation and onboarding technologies are top of mind for agents looking to do business with a carrier, with 60 percent of agents reporting these as areas critical to their success.
