Insurance is more than just an interest for many people — it is a need. There were 45 million U.S. residents who did not have health insurance during the first nine months of 2012. Among these are young adults who are Internet savvy, older individuals, and the GenX and Baby boomer generation. Many in all of these groups say that they are interested in shopping for insurance in new marketplaces.

“For in-market insurance customers, the window to make an impact is tight, where many of them complete their research in less than two weeks using a multitude of online resources,” said Scott Neslund, EVP of Media Services at Centro. “To influence these types of consumers, insurance advertisers need experienced partners who can help them navigate this space to position themselves as the trusted guides for the customer. Helping consumers better understand healthcare insurance can build affinity and brand value.”

In a campaign for a healthcare provider this year, Centro helped increase brand awareness and develop a customer pipeline by driving “get-a-quote” conversions. The mobile, display and video executions outperformed industry benchmarks in brand lift (by 100%) and performance (by 500%). Furthermore, it translated to over $48 million in potential lifetime customer value.

Centro utilizes a three-step methodology to help agencies and their clients execute digital media campaigns flawlessly. It starts with an audience evaluation to precisely define target segments. Centro taps its proprietary database with information from 22,000 campaigns to map the digital channel properties that best meet campaign objectives. Then, Centro predicts campaign outcomes as it relates to client goals.
