How do you feel your investment with the Advantage Subscription has benefited your agency overall?
“Greatly. It’s the one bill I get every month that I’m happy to pay, to be honest, because I know I’m making money off of it so… it’s been a great experience for me. In regards to ROI – fantastic. I mean, we’re definitely making a lot more money than we’re putting in and… for what I’m paying in other marketing resources, this is the one that I like paying the most because I know that I’m getting my money back.”

“One of the accounts we got from TrustedChoice[.com] was over $100,000 dollars in premium.”

“We have actually written a lot of business with TrustedChoice[.com]. For the cost… to me, it’s a no-brainer. You’re paying a very small amount of money per month, and… you’re not paying per lead or per click or anything like that so they just flow into your email box.”
