COVID-19, a.k.a. the coronavirus, is wreaking havoc on just about every type of entity that exists. The human toll for those who become ill and their loved ones is most tragic, of course. And there’s also the multitude of other ways that we are all affected—closed schools and churches, overloaded medical institutions and shuttered businesses, large and small.

 As health experts continue to recommend social distancing and more municipalities move to shut down any environment where people can gather, entire industries have all but stopped doing business, including tourism, hospitality, retail and more.

 One sector that hasn’t closed is insurance.

People still need coverage for their homes, cars, belongings and lives. Their policies are still renewing, and they are still requesting quotes, looking for the best deals and choosing the right coverage to meet their needs.

How can you, an insurance salesperson, find these folks when you can’t even leave your home to do any in-person prospecting? By using paid leads from Hometown Quotes.

At Hometown Quotes, we use thoughtful, targeted marketing techniques to find consumers who are online and actively shopping for insurance. Once they fill out a form asking for a quote, we quickly run them through an automated prequalification process that also sorts them into categories by type of insurance they’re looking for, their location and other demographic information. Within minutes, we send those leads to insurance agents based on settings chosen by the agent such as geographical region, income, etc.

If you haven’t made use of our leads before, now is a great time to try. Just as you are trapped at home, so are these potential customers. Prospects who are normally on the go are now stationary at home. This means if you call them back immediately, you’ve got a good chance of reaching them.

Ready to give it a try? We’ll make it easy, even during this period of social distancing. Members of our team have worked remotely for years, and we have everything in place to continue providing fresh leads indefinitely. To begin, you’ll be assigned to one of our regional managers who will help you determine when and what leads you want to receive. And our customer service support will be there to help answer questions and assist you with any other needs.

 To get started, call us at 800.820.8921, and you’ll have an inbox full of fresh leads before you know it. 


To all of the wonderful insurance agents and vendors that we work with, the team at Hometown Quotes sends our very best wishes that you all stay healthy and continue to prosper during these trying times.
