I'm interested in agent feedback. My website provides consumer information on insurance companies & auto, home, & life insurance. When it comes to life insurance, I think the public is best served if they include an independent agent specializing in life insurance, before they buy a policy. I'm planning to implement an insurance agent directory, so people can find independent life insurance agents in their area.
I'm considering charging agents $5 a year for a listing and a backlink in my directory. My website is still less than two years old, and does not have the high page rank associated with an "authority" website, but it would still be a link from a highly relevant website, to help with SEO. Also, it may not generate many leads, but what leads it does generate should be of good quality.
Would independent life insurance agents be willing to pay this nominal fee? Do you think a service like this has value to the agent?
