Jackson Enhances Advisor Experience with Pitney Bowes EngageOne Video
STAMFORD, Conn., May 09, 2016 - Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides innovative products to power commerce, today announced that Jackson National Life Insurance Company (Jackson) has successfully enhanced advisor engagement using Pitney Bowes EngageOne Video. By incorporating interactive and personalized video in their sales and marketing, Jackson has created a compelling experience to promote the company’s Elite Access variable annuity investment platform.
Jackson is a leading provider of retirement solutions for industry professionals and their clients. The company offers a diverse range of products geared toward the retirement investor, including variable, fixed and fixed index annuities. Much of Jackson’s success is attributed to their commitment to providing investment advisors with the products, tools and resources to meet the evolving needs of their clients.
Jackson partnered with Pitney Bowes to create the personalized video sales presentation which promotes Jackson’s Elite Access to advisors and to their individual clients via their advisor. The service also educates visitors on the features and benefits of Elite Access and feeds qualified leads to the Jackson representatives (in the case of advisor viewers) or to their advisor (in the case of client viewers).
“We have found view times for the new videos are off the charts, meaning we engage with our audience for a significant amount of time,” said Andrew Zapotosky, director of digital marketing at Jackson. “Using the EngageOne Video, we connect with advisors to share information, promote our advantages and reinforce our brand value, as well as provide them with an interactive tool to educate their clients.”
While Jackson does not market directly to investors, investment advisors can use the tools Jackson provides to communicate with clients and prospects. Real-time notifications provide these advisors with details on what each investor viewed and for how long – intelligence the advisors can then use to better serve their clients.
“Jackson has tapped into the flexibility and power of interactive video,” said David Schwartz, Vice President of Software Solutions at Pitney Bowes. “They’re primarily a B2B company, but they understand the social nature of digital technology. It’s exciting to see how they are helping advisors engage their customers in such a smart, data-driven way.”
