comments and recommendation votes for this Parasol listing. Make of that what you will.
By offering exclusive leads to insurance agents, ParasolLeads has found its niche in the lead industry.
According to the company’s website, their agents close roughly 40% of the insurance sales leads that they purchase. With a closing rate like that it is easy to see why lead buyers would be interested.
Update: Since this profile was originally published the 40% close rate is no longer posted on the site. I was unable to find any information to back up this incredible claim. It is unclear if producers are still closing Parasol leads at a 40% rate today. Based on numerous emails and reader comments submitted to ILR it seems unlikely.
Here are a few features of Parasol Leads:
- 100% exclusive insurance leads, generated through organic search traffic.
- Lead filters and geo-targeting available.
- No contract, sign-up fee, or minimum purchase required.
- Lead caps. This feature allows agents to put a daily number on the amount of leads they want to purchase. Additionally, agents can use an “on/off” switch to ensure that they only receive leads when they need them.
Types of Leads
Thanks for the reviews, will stay away from these guys.
These are the worst “leads” in the industry. I return every one. The company should be forced to closed down and stop ripping people off. Stay far away from this piece of junk company.
closing 40% seems unrealistic for an intranet lead unless your superman and if you are please call me i will pay $$ for your secret
I had to return over half of the leads that I received due to bad numbers wrong numbers, or people stating that they have not requested a quote in years. The other half are mostly numbers that ring and ring so I couldn’t confirm they were bad before their 7 day return window expired. I would be shocked if they are actually generating any new leads. I believe that everything they sent to me was old and recycled leads. In my opinion there’s something foul about their return process as well the math doesn’t add up.
I decided to try them 12-29-15 today is 2-17-16 and I have yet to talk to a single customer that is interested in an insurance quote. My balance went from $250.00 to $2.50 according to them and I don’t have anything at all to show for it. The sales guy seems nice I suggest you don’t fall for it like I did. I will be posting my complaint on every single site that I can find on the internet. We work really hard for our money agents, these hustlers in the lead selling business must be held accountable.
Worst leads out there. Most of them were not real leads. They have a liberal return policy but I want leads, not fake leads. Don’t waste your time or money. Bad investment.
Yes, alot of people have been burned…the worst part about their marketing ploys is Tom Caroloan says agents are closing 40% of leads…He is lying to try and make money…what a shame
Tie company does not generate leads that are trustable. They burned me. I am sharing this to help other people.
