DIY Culture Doesn’t Stop With Insurance

DIY Culture Doesn't Stop With Insurance

In recent years, DIY culture has become a significant part of modern life, influencing everything from home improvement to personal finance management. This shift is driven by easy access to online information, a desire for personalized solutions, and the cost-saving benefits of doing things oneself. One area where DIY culture has particularly thrived is online insurance quoting. As clients become more tech-savvy, insurance agents need to adapt to stay competitive. InsurForm is one example of a  tool that independent agents can use to streamline the insurance quoting process. It caters to both DIY insureds and traditional clients.

While DIY isn’t new, its impact has grown significantly in the digital age. Platforms like YouTube, Pinterest, and numerous blogs provide step-by-step guides for almost any project, empowering people to tackle tasks they might have left to professionals. According to a Harvard Business Review study, the DIY market is booming, with many consumers preferring to handle projects themselves for control, customization, and cost-efficiency. Many consumer-facing InsurTechs like Lemonade and Pogo, already provide self-service quoting retail platforms. But now, agent-facing InsurTechs like SolePro are creating solutions for independent agents to offer quotes form their own website 24/7, too. (See: InsurForm)

The rise of DIY Culture in the Insurance Industry

The insurance industry hasn’t escaped the DIY trend. Consumers increasingly seek control over their insurance needs, researching information, comparing quotes, and purchasing policies online without speaking to an agent. This shift is driven by:

1. Access to Information: The internet is a treasure trove of information. Potential policyholders can research different types of insurance, understand the nuances of coverage, and read reviews about insurance companies, all from the comfort of their home.

2. Convenience: Online quoting platforms allow consumers to get insurance quotes at any time, bypassing traditional office hours. This convenience is a significant draw for busy individuals.

3. Customization: DIY tools let consumers customize their insurance policies to fit their specific needs, rather than settling for a one-size-fits-all approach.

The Impact of Self-Service Options on Bind Conversions

Self-service options significantly increase consumer engagement and purchasing rates. In the insurance industry, a Forrester study found that 63% of consumers are more likely to purchase insurance from providers offering online self-service options. Additionally, 56% of policyholders prefer digital channels for buying and managing their insurance policies, highlighting the growing demand for self-service solutions. One example is InsurForm, a self-service D2C quoting feature recently launched by SolePro. With InsurForm, agents can put a no-code quote form on their own website.

Challenges for Insurance Agents

While the rise of DIY insurance quoting offers many benefits to consumers, it poses several challenges for insurance agents. Traditional agents, who rely on personal interactions and tailored advice, may find themselves struggling to compete with the convenience and accessibility of online quoting systems. Key challenges include:

  1. Competition with Online Platforms: Online platforms offer quick and easy quotes, often attracting consumers who might otherwise consult an agent.
  2. Maintaining Personal Relationships: Building and maintaining personal relationships with clients becomes more difficult when consumers are inclined to handle everything online.
  3. Adapting to Technology: Agents must continuously adapt to new technologies and online tools to remain relevant in a rapidly evolving market.
