BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Agent Review has launched a campaign on Kickstarter to secure funding to support its national consumer marketing launch.
"Finally consumers will have a dedicated platform to rate their insurance agent experience to help others choose an agent or insurance products," states Jonas Roeser, Co-Founder and CEO. Roeser continues, "This type of designated rating and professional positioning platform is available for many other industry segments, but is a first for insurance industry."
National reports indicate that 80% of consumers looking for information about insurance or agents do so online and that social media influences 93% of their decisions. "Performance reviews and client testimonials can make or break an agent," states Harley Gordon, Co-Founder and President. Agent Review aims to provide a one-stop solution for consumers looking for an insurance product education, while offering the ability to search for a local insurance agent that has been review by their clients and professionals in their community.

The Agent Review consumer platform aims to go live in first quarter of 2015. Insurance agent listing options will range from opting out of their free listing to submitting their credentials for independent verification. Agent Review knows that consumers conduct their research online, but ultimately they want to "buy local" from a trusted resource.
