Nope, it's my MY mail house. They're in Indiana, I'm in Florida and have no financial ties with them whatsoever. We have tried Need-a-Lead, Kramer, CMS, Lead Concepts, and more and no one has worked as well.

I'd beg to differ...I don't think it's a "bad agent" all the time.

I do understand the areas of opportunities for the agents as also the chances that you pitch it to the wrong person. The agent may possess enough product knowledge, be courteous and yet the product may just not suit the needs of the prospect. So, you don't always term that as a "bad agent". Do you??



Again, the mailing business may seem less appealing to some of you since the "human touch" is very much missing. But at times, the visual effect wins over other things. The thing that the prospective customer could see the use of all the features of your product and know whether it suits his needs, would actually give you an edge to earn natural leads over other competitors. How about that??

With the majority of people on the DNC. The best way to generate leads for FE is through Direct Mail.



The two most important parts of a direct mail campaign is:



1. Professionalism of the card

2. The data

Our Lead costs are cut by 75% so our agents have more leads to call than they can ever get to. They have access to virtually unlimited high quality responder final expense leads for a few hundred bucks a week. 1 sale and there weekly expenses are covered.




Am I understanding you correctly? You're saying the 6-8K a month is how the other guys do it but your leads are only fraction of that cost?

Companies that generate own leads have a lot of potential. They have to

maintain a good research and development team that would study the different market trends and identify their profit optimization. Such companies have dynamic strategies to pull up their sales figure even under a global downturn.

Very few agents are willing to do that because of the risk so they just flounder by buying 10-20 leads per week and make there $20k-$50k/yr after expenses. And then they are off looking for the greener grass which never comes.





Maybe I misunderstood this statement, but here is what I get from it.



If I want to make 150,000...I need to:



Spend 6-8K a month on leads

Spend on other Expenses every month



8 x 12 - 96,000

Other expenses ~5000 a year or more??



That leaves me with 49,000 a year.



If I flounder and purchase 10-20 leads a week I will make 20-50K a year after expenses.



Is the 150,000 after expenses? Because otherwise it seems just as wise to flounder without the risk of paying so much for leads.




Can we please get an answer to this question?
