PIMA is the leading association in the affinity insurance direct marketing industry. This annual competition presents awards for direct marketing efforts that display innovation and creativity, while producing measurable results and displaying best-in-class strategies.

Affinion took home a Gold Award for E-Commerce, a Silver Award for Mail Solicitation Guaranteed-Issue Product marketing, and a Bronze Award for Customer Cross-sell marketing.  

Affinion's Gold Award-winning E-Commerce entry integrates a drive-to-web Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance direct mail offer with a highly engaging website, all featuring their financial institution clients' brand. The website is responsive on any device and ADA-compliant, providing a smooth and seamless flow from a direct mail push-to-web through the online enrollment process. This successful approach showcases Affinion's expertise in delivering top-rated products from highly-rated carriers – across both traditional and digital channels – to strengthen financial institutions' consumer recognition.

Affinion's direct mail winning campaign highlighted the company's ability to respond to consumer and industry needs. Our creative approach and product positioning drove profitable response to the unique Recuperative Care Plan, winning a Silver Award.

Leveraging the company's 40+ years expertise in insurance direct marketing, the Bronze Award-winning Icon Package successfully sold the Hospital Accident Plan (HAP coverage) to AD&D insureds. Affinion focused on three key points to develop both results- and data-driven mail campaigns: impactful product positioning, ease of enrollment, and consumer preference for purchasing insurance through their financial institution.

"These three PIMA awards reflect the diversity of Affinion Insurance Solutions' success and expertise across multiple products – digital and printed media – and insured and uninsured segments," said Sally Dickter, Affinion's Senior Vice President of Insurance Marketing. "Our award-winning marketing methods put consumers in control of their journey from offer to purchase with options to get information or coverage 24/7 from a mailing or website. User-friendliness and ease of use define all our marketing media, driving the success that wins insureds, partners, and awards."

For over a decade PIMA's Marketing Methods competition has given over 100 member companies an opportunity to compete head-to-head and award those whose marketing results, strategy, and creative execution set the industry standard. Entries were received this year from insurance third-party administrators, brokers, agencies, insurance companies, and support service providers. Winners of PIMA Marketing Methods awards were determined by an independent panel of professionals from organizations that source, underwrite, and market insurance.
