“I think we’re getting a better customer [with], one that’s going out there and looking for trusted and highly rated people… When they call us they’re already primed… It’s been amazing, the amount of referrals, to be honest with you – and we buy leads from multiple sources, [but leads] are always 30 – 40% close rates.”

“We’ve gotten over $175,000 in premium this year off of TrustedChoice[.com]. The Claim-it leads was about $67,000 of that… So when we look at our total investment with TrustedChoice[.com] we’re looking at about a 203% return on our investment.”

“I would recommend TrustedChoice[.com] to other agents, for numerous reasons – easy to use, easy set up, plenty of support, it’s part of our association benefits so why not, it’s economical. I would probably highly recommend it to other agents, except that I don’t want them to be competing with me, so I don’t want them to know the secret.”
