                        The                                    Solution
A study of shopping and buying habits of more than 1 million US consumers published
in April 2009 by comScore, a global internet information provider, found that 63% of
respondents obtained price quotes for insurance online compared to 25% who called a
local independent agent. That same study showed that 30% of those consumers
bought a policy online, compared to just 4% only 5 years ago. The percentage of
people who purchased through an agent has dropped more than 20% in the past 5
years. Clearly, the online channel is the first place consumers go to research insurance
prices, and more and more insurance companies understand that it has become crucial
for them to communicate to prospective clients through this channel.
