Case Studies

1. Product & Offer Innovations

A large, midwestern bank was dissatisfied with the direction of its existing complimentary insurance direct mail program. Over the years, the insurance marketing company it had used was marketing to a smaller and smaller percentage of its customer file. The bank turned to MMI Group for a fresh perspective. MMI realized that while many different creative mail designs had been tested, the product and offer had actually become stale.

MMI tested several new offers against the bank's control. One of the new offers MMI developed was the automatic upgrade of a complimentary coverage to a higher level of coverage after an introductory period. The automatic upgrade offer generated more than double the amount of premium of the control. MMI then launched a series of new creative tests and new products, which opened up cross-sell opportunities to previous buyers.

The overall result of these new campaigns were dramatic. Because collected premium per mailed lead doubled, a much larger portion of the customer file was able to be marketed, from 25% of the file prior to MMI's programs to 80% with MMI.

2. Customer Retention

For over ten years, MMI Group has provided customer retention services for one of the largest institutions in the country. The institution was not satisfied with its internal efforts to keep customers enrolled in its programs and sought out MMI's assistance to improve quality, customer satisfaction, and persistency rates. Over the years, customer persistency improved significantly due to MMI's expertise.

This success was made possible by implementing MMI's proven blueprint for retention marketing:

  4. Introduce new retention tools and techniques, including re-sell scripting, up-sell and down-sell options, and customer incentive offers
  5. Continuous improvement by constantly analyzing results and refining processes

3. Multi-Channel, Multi-Product Marketing

Over eight years, MMI Group substantially grew the revenue generated by the insurnace marketing efforts of one of the largest banks in the country. The bank's willingness to test new products, offers, and channels made the relationship one of MMI's most successful ever. Premium generated in the eighth year of marketing was 209 times the level it was in year one.
