Insurance Leads – Where To Buy Them

Today I want to cover a polarizing issue among agents — shared insurance leads.

In recent years I’ve worked with many providers and have gotten a pretty good system in place to help my clients pull in a positive return with shared leads.  I mentioned the topic is polarizing because finding a combination of decent sources and working them in the right manner is the key to making them work.  Most comments you’ll find online about lead companies is pretty harsh.  This is understandable.  If you spend your marketing dollars and don’t have success few will actually blame themselves for failure even though that is the case more often than not.  You’ll be hard pressed to find a lot of positive reviews out there because…well….agents having success don’t really want to have any more competition.

So, this weekend I was talking to a buddy I’ve worked with in recent years that lives just a bit north of me in The Woodlands.  His name is Kevin Howard and it pains me to say that he can run circles around me when it comes to internet leads.  He is absolutely fanatical about testing and measuring everything he does and it really pays off.  He told me about a website he just put up that I think it a great resource at InsuranceLeadReviews.com.  The site features over 15 real insurance lead review profile pages and he said he’s got more coming.  I really like what he also did with the comparison chart on the front page.  He has things broken down by line and also throws in some tips and promos.

It’s a really cool implementation and I think every agent should check it out.  There is nothing to buy and no signup required so it’s free as it gets.  Let me know what you think.

5 Ways to Take Better Care of Your Car

You should never take your car for granted. It gets you to and from work, the store, and anywhere else that you need to visit. For the endless service provided by your car, you should be willing to return the favor from time to time. In short, this means taking better care of your car.

Note: the more TLC you provide the better chance you have of your vehicle lasting a very long time. In turn, you are able to save a lot of money. 

Here are five ways to ensure that you are taking good care of your car:

1. Wash it regularly. This is one of the easiest ways to not only care for your car but to make it look better. No matter if you do it yourself or pay for a professional car wash, in the end the result will be the same.

Tip: as you wash your vehicle, keep a close watch for anything that is out of place and may need replaced or repaired.

2. Change the oil. Hands down, this is one of the best things you can do for your car. If you want to keep the engine in good working condition you need to change the oil based on the manufacturer’s recommended schedule.

Begin to skip oil changes and you are asking for a major problem.

3. Make repairs as soon as possible. Do you need a new battery? Are your tires worn out? Are your brakes at the end of their life? No matter what type of issues you are having, it is important to deal with them as soon as possible. A problem that is not taken care of is one that could lead to more damage in the future.
