    Saw this ad on Youtube last night. When i went to their website, it verified that they were going "consumer direct." Not sure how sucessful they will be, but i'm sure lots of agents will not be happy.

    Dan Marino (celebrity whore that he is) is plugging their wares...

    https://universaldirect.com/

    "Shop at your convenience....on your time"

    I wonder how many ppl will use this service?

    (never liked Dan Marino anyway)

    This trend has been ongoing.

    Although your right, i have never seen Universals Commercial for going B-to-C.

    So Basically, Universal thinks they can save the 10-15% (or whatever they pay an agency) and market their product "cheaper" than through an agency distribution channel.

    That's the way i'm reading it.

    After Universal sells the policy online they will pass on the customer to a local agency including the commission so it is actually "free" money to the agency.
