If you are in the business of selling life insurance – either as a insurance provider or a life insurance broker – then the importance of insurance leads to your trade is something to which you are not likely to need an introduction.
The insurance business, regardless of the policy you are dealing with is after all, a business that relies heavily on direct selling; a process where you are supposed to try to get hints (leads) as to whom could be looking to purchase the different types of insurance (in this case insurance), and then try to introduce them to your product, so as to increase – in the final analysis – the chances of them purchasing your insurance policy, rather than your competitor’s; since the competitors are also likely to try to sell their product to the prospective buyer if they get an hint that the person in question is looking to purchase insurance.
In days gone by, as anyone who has been in this insurance business for long enough will aver, getting insurance leads used to be a very tricky affair indeed. In actual fact, before the advent of the Internet as a mass marketing tool in the late 90s, there were only three possible ways through which one could ever get insurance leads, all rather arduous. The first of the three was by calling various people on phone, typically just at random, and trying to introduce them to the workings of the insurance – so that those who expressed serious interest in the product could be then treated as the ‘leads’ and have the insurance directly marketed to them.

The second of the three would be by knocking on people’s doors, sometimes with rude reception, and trying to introduce the people to concept of insurance, so that those who showed serious interest in the health insurance could be treated as ‘leads’ and have the policy marketed for them. The third of three ways, of course, was where the marketer just confidently stopped people on the street, introduced them to the concept of life insurance, watching for signs of interest in them which they could then used to decide who was a lead and who was not, before proceeding to make serious selling attempts. All these were, of course, highly inefficient ways of doing business, and quite expensive ones at that.
The advent of the Internet as a marketing tool came with new possibilities, as far as the selling of life insurance went. Indeed, today we find ourselves at a point where a person looking to find life insurance leads online does not even have to invest heavily in developing a highly optimized website for the same leads, as the leads can be easily purchased from either the companies that have emerged dealing exclusively with those life insurance leads (who develop a highly optimized website, collect the leads with it from online searches, and then sell the leads to actual insurance vendors), or purchase them from Internet search providers, who can – for a small cost – allow you to place your adverts right on the windows that people end up in whenever they conduct any life insurance related search.
