TowerStreet Offers Insurance Agencies Free

August 9, 2001

TowerStreet, a provider of insurance software and services, is offering a free Web Tool Kit containing information, advice, and resources that insurance agencies can use to create and enhance their websites.

TowerStreet created the kit with the help of its marketing partners (listed below), which provide complementary services, including website design and marketing. All of the marketing partners have extensive insurance experience, and some of them are agents. The kit is available to any agency by calling 800-634-7283 or by visiting www.towerstreet.com.

A key component of the tool kit is a publicity program that promotes the Web sites of insurance agencies that use QuoteNETWorks™, TowerStreet’s online rating tool. TowerStreet will help drive traffic to agencies’ websites by writing and distributing press releases to news and business media in the agencies’ geographic areas. The releases will publicize the agencies’ services and capabilities, including 24/7 online quoting with QuoteNETWorks. The publicity program is provided by TowerStreet, at no cost, as an additional benefit of using QuoteNETWorks.

QuoteNETWorks is an application service provider (ASP) that enables agents and other insurance professionals to offer consumers comparative quoting from their Web sites 24/7/365, no matter which rating systems they use. With QuoteNETWorks, a consumer answers a few questions from the agency’s website, then receives comparative quotes from multiple carriers. The agent receives an e-mail from TowerStreet that includes the information entered by the consumer. For agents that use TowerStreet’s desktop rating system, QuoteNETWorks downloads the consumer’s information, including underwriting information, directly into the agent’s rating system for follow-up. QuoteNETWorks is available in 41 states for personal automobile and homeowners and in 19 states for business owners policy insurance. QuoteNETWorks’ 220-plus agency customers already have downloaded more than 20,000 qualified leads and quoted more than $17 million in potential premiums.

The following companies provide a variety of website services, including design, hosting, e-mail, marketing programs, and search engine placement. More complete information on these marketing partners is available in TowerStreet’s Web Tool Kit.
