    Just a warning to all. The Dave Ramsey ELP program is pure junk. These are some of the worst leads we've ever received. We close close to 30 new clients a week. Do you know how many we closed from the Dave Ramsey ELP Program? Zero. We received five bad telephone numbers. Some wanted a quote, but didn't want to do an app (not sure how to get the information for a quote without an app). Some changed their mind. Some didn't even remember applying for insurance, and someone from our office called them after 2 mins of receipt of the lead.

    If you want better value for your money, you should just throw the money out the window. At least you can see where it's going. Here's a kicker, they do not even charge per lead. They charge an AVERAGE over the previous 12 months and you pay that monthly regardless of receiving leads or not. For example, in Feb. and March, we received north of 10 leads each. In April, ZERO. In May, one so far. Why does that matter? Well, you will still pay the same rate each month. Just nuts.

    STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS. IT PURE BS.

    Leads are worth the same as Ramsey's insurance advice.

    Doesn't sound like you have the heart of a teacher!

    Dave makes all the money. You're just supposed to be doing all the free teaching.

    Actually, I am debating if I should file a BBB claim. You do not even pay for each individual lead. You pay for an average combined amount. The sent us the averages for the last year. We didn't even get close to those numbers. Pure lies. Just sell like anyone else, per lead, not average.

    Well now you know and you've spread the word. Thanks. Trying lead services is always a gamble, as it can be great for a long while and then turn bad very quickly.

    Thanks for the words. Ramsey was not on my list to try, but you may have saved others a great deal of money.

    Is that what they told you?

    I thought there was a new one born every minute.
