Georgia Agency Success Story – Matthew Plemons

TrustedChoice[.com] is one of the best partnerships we’ve gotten since we’ve gone independent. They help us expand into larger markets.

Plemons Insurance Agency

Kennesaw, GA

“The expansiveness of having a 60 mile [referral] radius helps us reach a little bit further than just the local folks…. We have some Trusted Choice [clients] that have come from out of state that found us, so it’s been a very very great program – and I will tell you, going forward, it’s the only one we’re going to continue with when it comes to lead services.”

“Absolutely, TrustedChoice[.com] is probably one of the best partnerships we’ve gotten since we’ve gone independent, to help us expand into different and larger markets. I would say we probably have close to 30 – 35% closing ratio, which is pretty significant. Easily 5+ years worth of TrustedChoice[.com] membership fees have already been covered.”

“The only way I would do it is with the Advantage [Agency Profile]… Definitely, to me, it feels like it’s going to give us a better reach, so to speak, into the industry versus someone who is not part of this program.”
