Life Insurance Leads

Due to my activity in the finance sector I have recently established a source able to provide an abundant supply of life insurance leads.

I am being informed that these leads have a conversion rate of about 50% which is very good for internet generated leads and all of the leads are incoming as opposed to people who have been cold called.

This means the leads are from genuine people with a genuine interest in buying life insurance.

What I am trying to do is find out if there are people who would be interested in buying a regular supply of life insurance leads if I am able to secure a good volume of regular leads.

The price for these leads will be in the region of £35 – 40 and any non-genuine leads will be automatically replaced. Large volume orders may attract a discount.

I have looked into the cost of life insurance leads and Leadbay are currently a large volume supplier with people bidding in excess of £40 for leads on a regular basis.

Other lead brokers are also charging in the region of £40 per lead.

Being a business person I am willing to do whatever I can to beat the competition.

If I get a few responses to this and people contact me telling me how many leads they could handle I will take this further.

I will be trailing some of these leads myself as a qualified adviser able to sell life insurance but because there are potentially dozens of leads available per day which, although I’d like to I can’t handle by myself, I think it’s only fair to offer them to other people!

So if you are in the market for life insurance leads please feel free to add a comment or contact me to discuss this further!

Alternatively, if you are a consumer looking into life insurance I can help with that too so feel free to ask.

Home or Motor Legal Expenses Insurance Cover

I just saved myself £25.

Some years ago a friend of mine had a motoring accident and was seriously injured. The other driver had been drinking and fled the scene but was eventually caught.

My friend had legal cover with his motor insurance and subsequently paid no legal costs and was awarded substantial compensation.

Since that day I have always taken out the optional legal cover with my car or motorbike insurance.

Until today.

I have a buildings & contents policy which I arranged for myself in my roll as a mortgage adviser (got a good price too! – drop me an email for a quote – it was cheaper than online providers! ;)

With this policy I also chose to have legal cover (call me cautious!).

I have just confirmed that the legal cover provided with my home insurance is actually ‘Family and Motor Legal Expenses Insurance’ and as such will provide the same cover that legal cover with my car insurance provides.

Whatsmore, it protects everyone in the household so this type of cover will protect spouses and children living in the house. So they don’t need extra legal cover either!

Therefore, on renewing my car insurance I no longer opted for legal cover and saved myself £25!

How many people are also cautious and always say yes to the legal cover? I imagine thousands! If not hundreds of thousands!

If everyone knew this and did the research to confirm they have the legal cover they need from one provider and therefore no longer need it elsewhere then some insurance companies are likely to lose out big time!

So spread the word!

But make sure you double check all the facts before making your decision because the last thing you want is to have an accident and not be able to claim the legal expenses. Solicitors aren’t cheap.

Cheap Document Wallets

Where do you buy your office supplies?

There are dozens of places to go and a dozens of products to compare and like anything, time is always a factor.

I recently needed to top up my supply of document wallets and because they’re only going to be used for storing files and not for display they can be as cheap as possible.

But where is the best place to buy cheap document wallets? Who sells the cheapest office supplies?

Although time is not something I have an abundance of I thought it might be useful to suggest a few options based on my experience of shopping around for cheap document wallets.

Because time is short, the internet is my first port of call when seeking the cheapest office supplies and Google is always a good place to start.

I searched and then researched and a few names were more prominent but others like Staples and Rymans didn’t come up in my search so I looked at them separately.

I didn’t want to bother looking at the price of single wallets because I need a few and I don’t really need boxes and boxes of them but…

For 50 document wallets the cheapest I found were: (prices include VAT)

In 4th place at £17.45 (5x pack of 10) – Rymans (+ £5.17 postage)

In 3rd place at £12.86 (pack of 50) – Euroffice (+ £4.54 postage)

In 2nd place and the leader for packs of 50 at £8.60 is… Staples! (+ £4.54 postage)

But for bulk orders you can buy 800 wallets, that’s 16 packs of 50 at an equivalent price of just £3.94 per 50 giving a total of £63.11 (with no postage)..

The winner is… ebay!
