Final Expense Direct Mail Leads

 

Final Expense Direct Mail Leads are key part of any insurance agent line of products. This is the fastest growing market in the United States. This lead will draw a bigger return than the Mortgage protection lead, usually it will return double the numbers.

Here it is best to combine the direct mail and the data list of seniors with a specific profile. Find a company that can provide FREE data for you and the direct mail at a deep discount. Make sure the leads are exclusive and not resold down the road.

Here again the knowledge of the product and pricing will be key factors, make sure you are representing a product that is competitive in price and that has some additional benefits for free or at very low cost such as:
1) Confined Care Benefits2) Waiver of Premium3) Accidental Death benefits4) Cash Accumulation5) Grandchild Riders for no more than $1 for up to 5 kids
these benefits just to name a few, but you need to be able to get a product to compete out there.

The script you use to call customers with is key and should be in line with the product you are selling. Search for help writing a script --- ONE SCRIPT DOES NOT FIT ALL PRODUCTS -- just like one size fit all does not work most of the time.

I would not pay more than $350.00 per 1000 mail drop. If you are buying leads from a company that you work for i would not pay more than $17.00 per lead you get.

Find advice on the best age group to call on or to mail to. If you are connected to the right company you will have this facts readily at your hand.

Buying Direct Mail and Internet Leads the Right way

 

I am going to do my best to give you an insight of how to get the best leads and how to work any type of leads. As we all know leads can be procured most any where and from any body. The first issue at hand is that you need to decide who your customer is. What type of insurance leads do you need? Mortgage Protection, Final Expense, Auto, Home or Health Insurance. Once you have nailed that down, then the rest is easy!! I would recommend staying away from the Internet generated lead unless you can work the lead with in the first 5 minutes. After the first 5 minutes the lead loses about 50% of its validity and after 30 minutes it is gone! When the Internet lead providers tell you that it is exclusive to you, make sure you read the fine print. It really does not matter 98% of the time if it is exclusive to you or not --- the issue at hand with this type of lead is, can you respond and take care of the customer within the first 5 minutes of the lead being generated.

Then again companies will try to sell you many other filters (bells and whistles) but at the end of the day if you are buying an internet lead is the same with filters or without. Let's talk about direct mail leads in the next section.

Direct Mail Leads for Mortgage Protection

This section we will dive into the Mortgage Protection direct mail piece, where to buy and what the right way to work it is. Starting out with the Mortgage Protection Lead the first thing you have to understand is how it gets generated and the true cost of the Lead Generation.
On average to generate a Lead of this type will cost around $77.00 nationwide, which means that if you work for a company that sells you a lead of this kind for lower the cost, it basically means that the lead will get resold an average of about 10 times.

My best recommendation is that you use historical leads that are 3-9 months or 10 - 18 months old, you have to have the right phone script and you need to have a system that will track the times and feed back per lead you work. Buying some of the historical leads will get you a huge discount, I personally would not pay more than $5.00 for this type of direct mail leads.

Yes, you would have to work a little harder but remember.... Newer is not necessarily better in our market. Our clients sometimes need to think about getting coverage for 3 months or even wait until they go through a life changing event.

One thing that will help you connecting more sales is being more knowledgeable of your product and knowing how to best set your product versus your competitors product.

You do not need to have the best product to connect, you just need to know how to service your client better than the other agent.

At the end of the day, most every product out there is a good product, specially if you are dealing with the large companies.
