Warwick RI (PRWEB) August 6, 2009
Astonish Results, a digital marketing company which provides full service marketing for independent insurance agencies, has been featured in a recent issue of Rough Notes in an article titled "Unfair Advantage."
Rough Notes, the insurance industry's premier trade magazine, recently highlighted Astonish and a few of their clients in their July 2009 issue. The article, titled "Unfair Advantage," outlines how the Astonish Results digital marketing system is helping insurance agencies across the country grow their business by using the Internet. "The direct writers are spending millions of dollars to drive business to the Internet," explains Tim Sawyer, company President. "That explains in part why 85% of insurance consumers are going to the Internet in the first place. Independent agents need to capitalize on that."
Astonish clients Steve Lewis of Security First Insurance, Chris Paradiso of Paradiso Insurance, and Paul Murphy of Paul Murphy Insurance are also featured in the article, attesting to the advantage that Astonish Results has given them. Since moving to the insurance industry Astonish Results has built and launched over 100 "virtual insurance offices". Instead of providing a website, Astonish Results focuses on a complete marketing system to capture and cultivate leads, round out existing customers, and increase retention.
The face of the system is the "Virtual Insurance Office" - a multi-media website complete with live action video spokesperson designed to be user friendly and maximize contact opportunities. "When we went live with our new site…it was insane the number of leads we were getting," says Lewis.
Murphy and Paradiso agree. Murphy attributes Astonish Results for every account his agency has written because of their online presence. Paradiso says that the company has transformed him "from a dinosaur to a dynamo" when it comes to selling insurance online. In fact, Paradiso will be featured in the August 2009 issue of Rough Notes, highlighting his ever-growing agency.
