Brokers and agents need to stay relevant in today’s internet world. The sophisticated consumer uses the internet for information. The internet is one of the top resources used by people for their insurance needs. InsuranceHotline.com provides internet referrals for hundreds of brokers and agents across Canada. InsuranceHotline.com supplies an affordable and viable solution to the individual broker or agent to help build their business. Three problems facing brokers and agents in today’s market are:

- Traditional advertising such as newspaper ads and yellow pages don’t provide any type of screening, resulting in time-consuming phone calls.
- Cost barrier to starting and maintaining a website that can provide qualified referrals.
Here’s what some of our clients are saying about the InsuranceHotline.com Marketing Program.

InsuranceHotline.com provides auto and home insurance rate comparisons and connects consumers with brokers and agents that can provide the lowest insurance rates for their driving profile.
