WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Insurance Forums, the largest community of insurance agents on the web, has worked hard to enhance its footprint and visibility to agents and consumers in the United States. Recently, forum management took control of LinkedIn's largest insurance group, which boasts more than 100,000 members. These members will no doubt help to swell the ranks at Insurance Forums, fostering an even richer environment for professional development and networking. The forums received more than 97,000 unique visitors in January 2012; current membership stands at over 38,500. This strategic maneuvering by Insurance Forums promises to offer the Insurance Carrier community a powerful method for providing the best, most reliable information to agents and producers about product news, industry updates and the availability of white papers and webinars.
Insurance Forums covers every aspect of the insurance industry, from health and life insurance to auto insurance, lead generation, cold calling, marketing and technology.
The main objective of Insurance Forums is to provide a space for agents to share ideas, strategies and success stories. Insurance sales is a cutthroat business, with many fledgling agents failing to make a living. Unscrupulous companies sometimes promise the moon only to deliver thankless drudgery and no prospects. Many disillusioned agents simply drop out of the career, leaving a shortage of qualified, talented agents to write and sell policies. Demand is not the problem: There has never been a lack of consumers needing guidance in meeting their insurance needs. Instead, the insurance industry has been deficient in support and professional development initiatives to further the success of new agents or ensure that veteran agents remain at the top of their game. Insurance Forums has filled that deficiency by creating an online environment that encourages collaboration and encouragement.
"Our team has worked hard to make Insurance Forums the leading community of its kind," said owner Sam Melamed. "Last month, the forums generated more than 1 million page views, and we expect that number to only grow. Insurance Forums provides a meaningful service for its members, as well as offering a powerful opportunity for advertisers to get significant brand exposure. In the near term, we expect to continue adding to the member rolls, solidifying our place as the prime destination for insurance agents across the nation."
Insurance Forums plans to welcome insurance carrier advertisers to the site in the coming weeks.
Registration with Insurance Forums is free and open to anyone. Insurance Forums does not disclose any personally identifiable information to third parties.
