September 25, 2013 — San Francisco, CA — COUNTRY Financial®, a Fortune 1000 group of insurance and financial services companies, and Hearsay Social®, provider of the leading social sales platform, today announced their successful rollout of the Hearsay Social solution to over a thousand COUNTRY Financial® representatives.
COUNTRY Financial® has been a leader in providing auto, home, life insurance and investments for more than 85 years. Operating in 17 states, COUNTRY financial representatives are located in cities, suburbs and rural communities creating deep and lasting relationships that often span many generations within a family. With Hearsay Social, financial representatives have been able to amplify their messages, increase brand awareness and build stronger relationships with customers and prospects through Facebook and LinkedIn.
“Using Hearsay Social, our financial representatives have a new tool in their communications arsenal helping them share approved content with their customers and prospects,” said Fanette Singer, senior vice president of marketing at COUNTRY. “On a single platform, Hearsay Social empowers our financial representatives so they can easily manage their presence on both Facebook and LinkedIn simultaneously. It is pretty remarkable that our social audience has increased by more than 700 percent in just a few short months.”
Prior to the Hearsay Social partnership, COUNTRY Financial representatives’ use of social media was challenging because of time-consuming processes and compliance requirements. Singer said: “Our Compliance team would spend weeks at a time working with reps to update and edit social content. With the Hearsay platform compliance has become streamlined and content issues are resolved within minutes.”
