Why is NetQuote now powered by insuranceQuotes?

Along with experts from the other companies that Bankrate purchased, we have combined 70 years of corporate insurance lead generation experience and millions of dollars of investment into one outstanding new brand, insuranceQuotes.

How do I receive leads?
When a consumer matching your requested profile completes a quote form, a lead will be delivered to you via email in real-time. Each account can have a total of 5 lead notification email addresses to help you manage your leads. You might also consider including the email addresses of co-workers or an office assistant. You can also choose to receive text Notifications to let you know you have a new lead. Also, if you download our free iQ Agents app, you will receive the lead in real time as a pop-up notification on your smart phone, enabling you to reach out to the prospect immediately, no matter where you are.
What types of leads does NetQuote provide?

How detailed are the leads?
Our lead information is very detailed and will give you the information you need to provide a preliminary insurance quote. See examples of our leads on the sample leads page.
How much do leads cost?
We offer competitive, pricing for all insurance lead types. Please contact us at 855-642-2337 to review pricing.
How Do I pay for leads?
It’s easy! You provide your credit card information when you register. Your credit card will not be charged until your first lead is sent. We collect a $100 deposit when the first lead is sent to you, and deduct the cost of additional leads from this deposit until it is nearly exhausted. When your balance runs low or runs out, your credit card will be charged again for the same deposit amount, and the process begins again. We will notify you by email each time we charge your card. If you purchase large volumes of leads you can increase the deposit amount to avoid an excessive number of charges to your credit card.
How many insurance providers and agents will receive the same lead as me?
While we can provide leads to up to 8 insurance providers and agents, we rarely provide them to more than 3 or 4 others. Leads will never be distributed to multiple captive agents within the same company.
Why do you need to know my carrier when I register?
At times we have different offers available for different carriers. Entering this simple piece of information will help our account set-up specialist offer you the best deals we have available. This also ensures that we can keep to our promise that leads will never be distributed to multiple captive agents with the same company.
How long before I receive my first lead?
Once your account set-up is complete, you are eligible to receive leads the same day. When you actually receive your first lead will depend on when we receive a consumer application that matches the profile you created.
Am I able to receive credit for a bad lead?
Yes. You have 10 calendar days to dispute a lead and we provide refunds for leads which prove to be invalid. For full details of our credit policy, contact our Sales or Service team.
