    I have a quick question if some of you would like to help me out here.

    I have been in the insurance business for quite some time now but still have times when I don't seam to have enough leads in my pipeline, (People to call on.) So I was just thinking about the direct mail lead, is any one still using them and how have they been doing? Or is the seminar rout a better choice?

    In the past I have mailed for Medicare Supplements, Finale Expense, LTC. with moderate success in conversion to a client.

    Glad to hear every ones thoughts and ideas.

    It's been waste of time for me. How many leads a week do you want to generate?

    Auto and home haven't gotten a single thing from it. Instead o focus on my sales meeting realtor networks, and open houses get way more out of it.

    I just found the 11 DM leads from my drop from last November. I guess I should check the shelf life. :)

    I hear you. Today I called a couple term client beneficiaries and a couple FE clients to let them know they are out of contestable period and wrote two new term and a UH SIWL.

    You called to let them know they were out of contestability? How's that conversation go? "Hey Mary, just to let you know that policy I sold you 2 years ago is now fully inforce...I know I told you that you were good to go 2 years ago, but now you are really set! BTW, do you need any more insurance?"

    You are my hero!

    Pretty close. I covered the contestability when I covered them. I also told them I would stay in touch. If "fe" I also do my "people with pre-existing conditions" "pitch" as well as the young family plan talk. If these are not SIWL we go over covering mom and grandma. Kinda the opposite of the FE talk.

    I do not know it does not work. So I keep doing it.

    What do you talk about when you call? .
