Listen in to one more excellent conversation about the situation with health and life carriers and e-signature. Todd has some very interesting comments…

  • Insurance companies seem like the Rip Van Winkle of Financial Services.
  • Reasons – wet signature requirements, technology issues, regulatory issues.
  • But it comes down to what people know.
  • Direct mail response-rates continue to drop.
  • What about simply having the guts to try something different?
  • Custom URL’s — here’s a novel idea!
  • We want to know more about you so that we can better serve you.

My comment — But you need flexible products. (See http://tonik.com/ for a great example.)

What’s at stake?

  • Tech-savvy brokers and agents will handle the innovation.
  • Carriers could have got there sooner…
  • …which could have driven competitive advantage.
  • Direct mail is dead.
