How to Win the Hearts of Insurance Customers

Insurance reviews tell us a lot about a company: how satisfied customers are with their experience, what issues cropped up (if any), and how the insurer handles those issues.

That explains why 61 percent of customers say reviews are influential when choosing a new provider. These reviews are social proof that an insurance company is following through with their promises.

But what makes for a great experience? For that, let’s take a look at some industry benchmarks and see how Kin’s reviews compare to our peers.

Customer Satisfaction with the Insurance Industry at a Glance

According to the J.D. Power 2019 US Home Insurance Study, 74 percent of customers believe the home insurance industry needs improvement. Thirteen percent go so far as to say it needs radical improvement.

That dissatisfaction might explain why the average Net Promoter Score — that is, a customer’s willingness to recommend a business to their friend — for the home insurance industry is a meager 35 out of 100.

But the good news is dissatisfaction breeds change. We got into the home insurance business precisely to bring the sweeping changes customers have been asking for.

And that’s also why our NPS is 84 — miles above the industry average. It’s also why our customers are eager to share their experience in customer reviews. See for yourself.

How We Stack Up to Our Competitors

Here’s a snapshot of our reviews compared to our insurtech peers and fellow Florida home insurance carriers.

If insurance companies legitimately want to impress customers and change the industry for the better, it means never settling for good enough. Customers place their trust and lives in our care. Our service should reflect that.
