The Emailing option is better. Emailing offers instant response, quick contracting, and fast sales. Let’s look at why the quick fix to high-level sales success does not work.
Here are the things that email blast firms will not allow you to see.
The Email Company has not invested 250,000. The amount is usually closer to $20,000. It was easy to make a big difference by using a few cheap and clever tricks. They made 8-12 sales and then it was all profit. It sounds like “How to Get Rich Quick 101”.
Two programs are essential for any company. These two programs are easy to find: a bulk email builder that allows for fast emailing and an email extractor. For $5,495.00, you can obtain a high-quality emailing program for outgoing messages. The price of a top-of-the-line email extractor program is higher, but it costs less. Private SMTP hosting servers can also be purchased. These servers are used to prevent spamming.
Falsely, the firm promotes its email blasting list to be an opt-in list for insurance agents. The list does not contain 100,000 insurance agents who are ready to receive your message. It is comprised of 10,000-14,000 licensed agents with all licenses. The remainder include insurance companies, employees of insurance companies, property and casualty agent agents, insurance adjusters and their employees as well as insurance software companies and employees. Insurance magazine staff members, sales representatives, and anyone else who appears on any insurance-related website.
These email addresses and names are incorrectly and intentionally assumed to be the insurance agents you seek.
You can also create an email list similar to that of an insurance agent for as low as $500. There are 2 cheap bulk “all-purpose email programs” that you can buy online. You pay $199.95 and receive an Email Address Extractor. Email Address Spider, Mailing List Remover, and many more. The anti-extractor costs $39.00. It connects to your recipient’s mail server, without the need for your Internet Service Provider (ISP), and uses a relay SMTP service. Additional $249.00 is required for technical support for two months. You could be fined if you spam using your internet provider or are tracked down. Worse, your web host may remove your site from the internet overnight, often without warning.
Two options exist for extracting emails from insurance agents.
Email extractor software can be programmed correctly and will run 24 hours a day. However, it requires a lot of space. Domain names are the names of websites. This is the first method. Keyed in is a word such as insurance. Instantly, the program searches for all websites url addresses that contain the word insurance. The program spider crawls every site it finds and extracts any email addresses it finds. If requested, it also spiders all link sites in search of more emails addresses. This program is not designed to be used by an intelligent human brain. Only you can assume that all email addresses are from real life or health insurance agents. The program will continue running until you are satisfied with the number of emails you have received.
The second option involves entering a search term (or phrase) such as “insurance agents” then choosing a search engine such as Google. Google displays 7,000,000 matches pages (yes, that number is accurate – check it). Google pulls every email address found on a website in order to rank it. It uses the same extraction process as the other url methods. This method begins with the most popular sites first. We found 60 possible insurance agency home offices and associations in the top 60 Google site listings. Only 6 life agents/agencies were possible. Although the accuracy of finding emails regarding life and health insurance has improved, it is still shockingly low.
The email list of an email list company that has an “insurance agent” email address becomes obsolete. They simply restart the extraction process. Wham! It’s a new bulk email list for insurance agents, ready to make more money and send out emails blasting.
Bulk email blasting can result in “insurance agent” recipients receiving a few hundred insurance offers every week. Many internet service providers (MSN and AOL) block spam-blocker words such as “free, $”, click here, which are used to stop email from reaching them. Others, annoyed, may add their own words to stop insurance spammers from reaching them. Studies have shown that over 65% of bulk emails actually reach the recipient.
