BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Agent Review (www.agentreview.net), a free online platform to connect consumers with non-biased insurance education and credible agents, today announced a new app focused on helping insurance agents better market themselves and attract new customers. The app, available for $3.99 on both Apple and Android phones, offers a series of simple tools for agents to easily obtain video and written testimonials, access sales tips and scripts, and create marketing assets to support sales.
Agent Review launched last year to offer consumers a trusted resource for their insurance educational needs. Built by two industry veterans, the site was also created with agents in mind, with a specific goal of restoring the personal touch to the agent-client relationship – something that has been lost with the massive growth of direct-to-consumer and other insurance web sites just looking to make a sale. Agent Review provides agents with a credible national platform to increase visibility with prospective clients. The app offers an added tool for agents to expand their credibility and reach through three key features:
- Review & testimonial creation. Agents can use the app to collect ratings and reviews from their clients on the fly, including video testimonials that can be added to their profile on the Agent Review site. With more than half of consumers relying on online reviews to make their buying decisions according to a recent study by Mintel, this feature is a valuable opportunity for agents to leverage their current happy clients to find new ones.
- Marketing design tool. The Agent Review app features a simple template and editing tool for agents to create Agent Review branded banner and print ads, flyers, and postcards to promote their presence as a trusted Agent Review agent. Promotional materials can be instantly customized with name, phone, web site, and more.
- Sales tips. Within the app is a library of samples sales scripts, educational videos, and other tips to help agents stay ahead of the curve with the latest tools and techniques for maintaining stellar client relationships.
In addition, the Agent Review app includes a lead alert feature, automatically notifying agents of inquiries coming in through the Agent Review web site so they can respond in a timely and informed manner.
"Today's digital world has made the insurance industry more competitive, more confusing, and more impersonal than ever. This presents a major opportunity for agents to build stronger relationships online – if armed with the right tools and platform to maximize exposure," said Jonas Roeser, Co-Founder and CEO, Agent Review. "That's where Agent Review and our new app come in, by providing marketing and sales tools right at the agent's fingertips to empower even the most technologically challenged insurance agent."
Agent Review has more than 200,000 members and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Download the app now, available for anyone on both Apple and Android devices for $3.99.
