The Fort Myers-Cape Coral Metro area is a very competitive insurance marketplace. There are many agents sending mailers both individually as well as part of a corporate brand. The idea was to create a concept that stood out from the competition, which is what the Culbertson Agency’s mailer did. It used variable data personalization, full color, as well as personal message to get people to pick up the phone or inquire about a quote over the Internet. This home insurance quote mailer was a perfect complement to the marketing mix of radio, television and outdoor media the Culberson Agency was already employing.


Response Rate: 1% to 2% sustained

Customer Benefits:Increased qualified leads and conversion of new home insurance customers.
