  • New Tool Takes Away the Pain of Finding Insurance Agents Locally

    March 5, 2019 by Insurance Agent Near Me

    Frank Medina, a leading insurance broker in Houston today announced the launch of Insurance Agent Near Me, a free online tool that connects customers with reputable insurance agents in their vicinity. Recognizing a crucial gap in how people find and choose insurance agents, this tool provides an innovative solution to a search process that is traditionally hit and miss.

    “We wanted to do something that addresses the challenges that customers face in finding local insurance agents. With a lot of insurance services moving online, over 70% of customers search online when trying to find insurance products,” said tool creator, Frank Medina. “However, because most customers lack the time or expertise to study the different types of insurance policies available and decide exactly what they need, they still rely heavily on insurance agents for advice and guidance. The problem arises when they need to decide who is the right agent.”

    A Google search for “insurance agent near me” typically returns well over 400 million results and the first results on each page are usually for big name top national insurance carriers. This is a major irritation and source of frustration for many customers who are looking for local agents close to them. Having been in the industry himself for over 10 years, Medina knows that the frustration can go both ways. For local or smaller insurance agents, relying on search engine results means they do not have the visibility they desire in order to connect with customers. If they wish to compete with the major carriers, then they would have to invest thousands of dollars into online placement. Even then, there is no guarantee that they will show up on the first page organically within the first year.

    Insurance Agent Near Me solves that problem by listing all the major insurance products that are being searched online daily and pointing customers to agents based on their proximity and relevance to the customer’s search terms. The tool uses a search algorithm based on users current IP address to determine which agents are nearby. Like a directory, it then lists only local agents with the product that customers search for.

    Agents registered on the directory have access to a user-friendly dashboard where they create tailored listings that help customers find them for specific services they offer. Unlike general Google listings, insurance agents using the directory have the ability to include announcements, events, ads and even generate leads that show up in their inbox, all from using one dashboard. All listings are manually verified to ensure customers are connected only to reputable local insurance agents.

    “Insurance Agent Near Me is on its way to becoming the number one insurance agent directory, the go-to source for those seeking local, personalized listings rather than generic search results,” said Medina.
