Merkle, the leading technology enabled, data driven customer relationship marketing (CRM) firm and the nation’s largest privately held agency, has announced the successful build and launch of Protective Life Insurance Company’s responsive design consumer website at www.protective.com. Protective’s site was developed to help consumers research, understand and apply for life insurance products across all digital devices.
“We know that 86% of consumers research life insurance online regardless of how they decide to purchase,” said Frank Sottosanti, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Protective Life. “This website enables us to better serve today’s consumer and positions us well for ongoing shifts in consumer technology adoption.”
Merkle took a holistic approach to transform the Protective.com experience.
