On some days we generate 750 fresh life leads - all obtained under our own brand name or that of our partners. These are NOT multiple-sold leads or incented leads of any kind. These are 100% unique, fresh and real leads from people responding to our own branded ads (we're in USA Today once per week) or those of our strategic partners.

There's no cost to join and all initial training is free. Training takes 1-2 weeks and, upon successful completion, you will receive a $2,500 Welcome Aboard check from us.

As an independent phone agent, you will receive web and telephone leads from us who've already done their own quotes at
www.lifequotes.com and who've asked to buy.

Using our proven scripts and procedures for your success on recorded calls, you will give advice, generate quotes, write applications, set paramed appointments and shepherd the customer through the submission process. We require either bank information or credit card information from all applicants at time application is prepared. Our model works!  We've sold 300,000 policies using this model.

Our pay plan is super-simple, easy-to-understand and pays you upfront for your efforts! Our call center is very fast-paced, so keep that in mind as you decide if this is right for you. Expect to talk to 50+ people per day. Expect to write 4 applications per 8 hours of working time. Agent pay is on a per-submit basis and payouts are made weekly.

EARNINGS EXAMPLE: Figure that you will earn an average of $80 per application submitted (signed by the customer and submitted to the insurance company). Here are some realistic earnings examples:

Weekly Submits        Weekly Pay                Monthly                    Pay Annualized Pay*
        10                         $ 800                    $3,200                             $ 46,000

* NOTE: Whenever you hit certain submissions in a calendar month you'll receive a Performance Bonus!  (Yes, several of our agents make over $100,000 per year with us)

Our call center is very fast-paced, so keep that in mind as you decide if this is right for you.  Expect to write 4 applications per 8 hours of working time.  Agent pay is on a per-submit basis and payouts happen every week (no need to wait 2-3 months for underwriting or commissions to come in!)

We're looking to expand our home-based independent contractor life insurance sales force beyond our current 50 agents. You must be competent, trustworthy, nice and thorough and be able to pass about 3 hours of basic aptitude and customer service skills assessments. Sorry, but do to strict life insurance company rules on appointing new agents, we cannot consider you if you have an open (or closed) bankruptcy within past 24 months, bad credit or any current overdue bills.

We represent 30 highly-rated companies and we're now looking to appoint a few highly-qualified and experienced independent life insurance agents to work our fresh and exclusive life insurance leads from your own home or office.

For parents with kids, this is the ultimate part-time job. There is no cold calling as you will be handling only detailed leads from our website or inbound phone calls. Flexible hours but success is garnered when you work night and weekend hours when customers are available to talk. 

There are no lead costs to you because these are our customers. And all leads are real, fresh and 100% exclusive to you.

Our "Outside Agent Independent Contractor" program is exciting -- especially if you want the freedom to work from home on the days and hours of your choosing subject to 40 hours per week minimum.  Additional hours working will increase your income – the leads are available for your to work at all times. 

Perhaps you've seen our term life ads in Forbes, Kiplinger's, SmartMoney, Fortune, USA Today and Money magazines.

Our dialer makes both outbound calls to our website visitors and it also accepts inbound calls from prospects who are calling us for quotes and applications, so you will be busy, perhaps talking to 50-75 people per day! Do not apply to be a Life Quotes Independent Agent unless you have call center or inside sales experience as this is totally different than doing face-to-face sales.

Remember, as an independent contractor, you can set your own working days and hours. All we ask is that you commit to no less than 40 hours per week with additional hours for greater success.

Under this program, you are free to handle customers from any state in which you are properly licensed and appointed in good standing and we do require you to obtain, at your cost, life licenses in the top 15 states and have your own errors and omissions policy in force at all times.

This is a fun and rewarding job if you like people, hate cold calls, can sell, don't want any marketing costs, and like to work at a fast pace with other diverse professionals without having to make cold calls.

Our call center is busy and insurance on the Internet is booming! Our agents cannot handle all the business and so we are expanding.
