Key Quotes:

  • “I think it’s important to put yourself in the consumer experience as well. When they’re going online, they’re going to a website, and they’re giving all this information about them. One of the important things I like to share with agency owners is… when you do get that person on the phone, be friendly.” – Justin Marks
  •  “I think some of the other things that are very important is picking a CRM that your team has full belief in. There are more CRMs out there than I have fingers and toes and my opinion on CRM is…it’s very simple. Find a CRM that your team uses. It creates efficiency, and has great follow up processes.” – Justin Marks
  •  “If you’re able to write two policies versus one, you know the economics are going to be greater. So, it allows you then to take that money, reinvest into more marketing to ensure that you keep that engine running, and to ensure that you’re growing the right type of clients that are good for the business, and good for the consumers as well.” – Justin Marks
