Insurance Agents Beware: NetQuote (and Insureme.com) markets themselves as a near-real-time lead generation company for insurance agents looking to connect with more prospects. Don't believe the hype! They tell you all kinds of bull to get you to sign up; things like only selling the lead to three agents to reduce competition when they really sell the lead to between 10 and 30; or that the leads actually went online to request insurance quotes and you get there info within minutes of requesting a quote -- HA! some of the leads are actually dead!
My FMO recommended these guys and it was an utter disaster. After 3 months and $1,000 cash, only 2 of over100 "leads" were truly viable prospects. I received leads for individuals that were impossible to reach, hadn't lived at the provided address for 2-5 years, had not actually provided their information to NetQuote within the past 18 months, or were actually dead. Yet, NetQuote will tell the agent that these are individuals "waiting for an agent to contact them." Don't believe it. I actually had a lead for a chemical engineer working for ExxonMobil who had lived in New Zealand for the past 12 years, but he supposedly only lived 12 miles away from me. I know this because it was his father that I spoke with when I tried to contact him!
Bottom line is this: NetQuote will not provide you, the agent, any more accurate information than you could get from the phonebook for free, but they'll charge you an arm and a leg for bogus information. These scumbags are perfect examples of why the lead generation industry has such a crappy reputation. I lost a ton of confidence and respect with my FMO for steering me to this scammer, and they're getting an earful.
