Recommended Services

Here’s a list of services we use (or have used, but just grew out of) in our internet life insurance business and recommend.  There’s a lot of subpar services agents waste their time with.  If you’re in the market for any of these services, we recommend and use them.

If you’re willing to hop on a dialer and “data mine” aged leads, there is no better ROI.  AgedLifeInsuranceLeads.com has a free training course that shows you exactly what to do.  These are the highest quality aged life insurance leads you’ll find and at the lowest cost.  We recommend to anyone looking to supplement your current lead flow OR are new in the industry and want to get good at selling over the phone quickly.  We don’t recommend as your primary lead source unless you use it combined with a telemarketer (see our offer below).   Use coupon code “STL10” for 10% off your lead order.

lead_heroes

AgedLifeInsuranceLeads.com and Lead Heroes put together a fully managed program where their telemarketers will call aged leads for you.

Their telemarketers will ask: “You had inquired about life insurance a while ago and we wanted to follow up to see if you moved forward with the decision”.  They will get them to say yes to speak with a specialist about some updated options + try to qualify with 3 basic questions so you have some more information going into the call.  You get notes and recordings of each call in a spreadsheet.

Here’s the pricing:

$32/lead for 20 leads
$27/lead for 40 leads

Contact Lead Heroes for more information.

Recommended CRM’s:

radiusbob

For the internet life insurance agent in their first few years of business where they’re getting less than 200 leads/mo., we recommend RadiusBob.

A lot of 6 figure producing, 100% online and over the phone life insurance agents in our community use this CRM to power their sales.  Community members get a 20% discount.

VanillaSoft
For the internet life insurance agent or agency that’s receiving over 200 internet leads/mo, VanillaSoft is the best we’ve seen.  Check out their demo here.  If you’re not at that lead volume, start with a less robust (and cheaper) CRM and it’s EASY to transfer your data over.

We recommend it because it’s a high velocity CRM that will make you a lot more efficient with bulk leads. No contracts, click to call, call recording, fully customizable, lead prioritization (game changer), smart scripting.

One more thing, if you join our community, we’ll copy our exact customizations with all our automated workflows to your VanillaSoft CRM that you’ll own 100%.  Get a free 30 day trial here.

 

Recommended Website Hosting

wpengine
We host all of our websites on WPEngine (including this one).  It’s the fastest, most secure and most reliable WordPress hosting we’ve come across.  It’s got great support as well.   It’s on the high side for cost at $29/mo, but for anyone serious about their website, it’s worth every penny.
