Of course the Emailing option sounds better. Instant response, fast contracting, and quick sales add points to the emailing option. Let’s delve into why the quick patch to the high up sales kingdom does not and can not work.
Here’s what the email blast firm absolutely does not want you to know.
The Email Company does not have a 250,000 investment. The amount is often closer to $20,000. Quite a difference was possible just by applying a couple cheap and deceitful tricks. Only 8 to 12 sales for them and from then on its all profit. Sounds like, “How to Get Rich Quick 101″.
There are 2 essential programs the company needs. These 2 easy to obtain programs are a bulk email letter builder with fast emailing capacity, and an email extractor program. A high end quality emailing outgoing message program can be obtained on the internet for a cost of $5,495.00. A top of the line email extractor program varies, but costs much less. Lastly private SMTP hosting servers are purchased. These assist in trying to avoid being caught for spamming.
The firm falsely promotes the email blasting list as an opt-in list of insurance agents. The truth is that the list is not 100,000 insurance agents ready to receive your message. Instead it is composed of 10,000 to 14,000 licensed insurance agents, with all types of licenses have not opted to receive solicitations. The rest include insurance companies, insurance company employees, property and casualty agents, insurance adjusters, insurance software companies and their employees, insurance magazine staff members, insurance book sellers, and the email address of anyone anyway showing on an insurance related website.
All these email names and addresses are intentionally and incorrectly assumed to be insurance agents you are seeking.
For under $500 can even develop a similar “insurance agent” email list yourself. Searching the internet you can purchase 2 inexpensive bulk “all purpose email programs” You plunk down $199.95, receiving an Email Address Extractor, Email Address Spider, Mailing List remover, and more, Next you purchase the anti-extractor for $39.00 . It uses your recipient’s mail server without your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to a relay SMTP server. In addition, add $249.00 for two months of technical support. If you are caught spamming using your internet service provider, or are traced, you face possible fines. Much worse, your web host will likely without warning, permanently remove your web site overnight.
There are two optional ways of extracting insurance agent emails.
Email extractor software, once programmed properly will run 24/7, but requires ample of disk space. The first method involves using domain names (names of websites). A word like insurance is keyed in. The program starts immediately searching for any and all website url addresses containing the word insurance. The program spider crawls the site extracting every email address it finds, plus if requested it spiders all the link sites looking for more emails addresses. This is a computer program, not an intelligent human brain. It is only you that assumes that all email addresses found are those of actual life and health insurance agents. The program will run nonstop until you decide you have procured enough emails.
With the second method, a search term or phrase such as “insurance agents” and then picking a search engine like Google. Google shows 7,000,000 matching pages (yes that number is correct -check it). In website ranking order, Google starts pulling every email addresses found in the website. Like the other url method it uses the same extraction process. But this method starts with the top listed sites first. In the top 60 Google website listings we found insurance company home offices, insurance associations, and only 6 possible life agents/agencies. The percentage rate of finding life/health insurance emails improved, but accuracy remained astonishingly low.
When the email list company has an “insurance agent” email list becomes outdated. they simply start the extracting process over again. Wham! A new bulk insurance agent email list is born, ready for more profits and emailing blasting.
It is not uncommon for “insurance agent” recipients of bulk email blasting to receive a hundred insurance advertising offers every few weeks. Some internet service providers (MSN, AOL, etc) automatically blocks out any emails using spam blocker words like “free, $, click here”. Other annoyed agents, add their own blocker words, like “insurance”, “life”, and “annuity” .to stop the onslaught of insurance email blasting from reaching them. Detailed studies show over 65% of all bulk email messages actually reaching the email recipient are being “deleted” before read.
Assume that every possible method was used by a honest firm to hand compile a fairly accurate list of annuity, life, and health agents. Out of 1,500,000 new and experienced life and health agents nationwide the number would stop around 250,000. Now try to find that honest firm.
