Your leads are valuable. Not having a system in place to manage them is like throwing money away!
Can you believe that a lot of brokers and agencies are still managing their leads through emails, Excel spreadsheets, and by memory? Traditionally, leads were created by outbound sales, so each broker or producer would have to track their own leads. Nowadays, most leads are created by inbound marketing which means it’s imperative that your company has a centralized place to manage and organize all leads.
Inbound marketing uses strategies such as SEO, AdWords, Facebook ads or any other form of advertising to drive traffic to your website. The result is to get leads that call in or fill out a form on your site.
If you are not using a good lead management platform that allows you to automate your communication to leads, track conversions, and run reports, than you are leaving a LOT of money on the table! One of the easiest ways of increasing sales in your organization is by implementing a good lead management platform that is seamlessly integrated with your website.
A good lead management tool will have a thorough onboarding process that provides the set up and training that you need. While there is always a learning phase, this should help your team stay on top of their leads – not make it more difficult!
A good lead management tool should integrate with your web forms.
Most BMS system tools don’t perform the way they should for today’s inbound marketing world. Just like most of us use our smartphones to navigate over our vehicle GPS, native solutions aren’t always the best option. Lead management is critical to the growth of your brokerage, so it only makes sense you have the best tool for the job.
Not at all, especially compared to the other platforms in insurance. For the benefit you receive from a good lead management tool, the cost is quite low. Usually there is a setup fee and a reasonable user license fee. Out of all the costs you have for your brokerage, implementing a good lead management system will be one of the best investments you make – especially if you want to participate in digital advertising.
Does your BMS allow you to integrate easily with third-party tools? Any good lead management software should integrate with any other application through an API. Unfortunately, BMS are notorious for being difficult to integrate with as they refuse to allow API connections. The key is to not make a decision based on your BMS – they shouldn’t get to dictate the way you handle one of your most valuable assets in business: your leads!

Just like most of us use our smartphones rather than in-car navigation systems, native solutions don’t always get the job done. Lead management is so critical to the growth of your brokerage or agency it only makes sense to use a tool that is built specifically for this. BMS version of lead management just doesn’t work… it’s not their focus or their specialty.
