Allstate’s commitment to making a difference in customers’ lives, giving back to local communities, and helping people has helped make them one of the largest and most trusted insurance companies.
In 2015, Allstate started noticing a shift in consumer behavior and their expectations of the customer experience. Allstate quickly moved to utilize GatherUp to capture important customer experience data at both the local insurance agent and brand levels to stay ahead of this change. In fact, they’ve been industry leaders in this area for their 10,000+ local agents.
The results are massive. Allstate has gathered over 1.5 million reviews after partnering with GatherUp and has seen Google reviews grow at 89% year over year.
But capturing and understanding customer feedback, online reviews, and other customer experience data was just the start. Allstate realized this valuable data would also help inform prospective customers what local insurance agent might be the best fit for their needs.
Powering Social Proof & SEO With Reviews
Allstate saw the powerful ability of 1st-party reviews to drive benefits in digital marketing and impact the customer’s experience when selecting an agent. When you arrive at Allstate.com you will find local agent options in your zip code plus a summary of their review and reputation data to help you make your selection.
If you click the agent’s profile page you will see that their reputation is part of the heading as well as the page content where a complete history of customer reviews, and the agent’s replies, are displayed.
The streaming of reviews from GatherUp to the Allstate agent’s page carries benefits past informing the potential customer during their web session. Because these reviews refresh when new content is received, they contain fresh, unique, and valuable content that is rich with keywords and always up-to-date. This is a search engine optimization (SEO) win all around for Allstate and its individual agents.
Allstate agents do a great job of replying to these reviews, realizing the benefit of closing the loop on any type of review is an additional customer touchpoint that can set them apart.
These on-page SEO wins also benefit Allstate agents through increased visibility in Google’s search results.
Allstate agents have been able to grow their Google reviews as well as making their Google My Business profile stand out.
