Hi, Julie here.
Hopefully you’ve checked out the TrustedChoice.com/ProjectCAP 101. If you haven’t, start here.
To help demystify the TrustedChoice.com opportunity, below are some specific questions other members have asked and my answers. If your question isn’t answered here - email me.
How many people are going to TrustedChoice.com?
Almost 70,000 visits in January and growing very fast every month.
Who is going to the site - are they only minimum-limit kids or a mix of prospects I really want?
They are prospects agencies would value.
Early statistics show 76% are over 30 years old, almost half are married.
1/3 of the vehicles quoted are over $30,000.
Over half are selecting our maximum limits package! Only 16% choose our minimum package.
Remember, we are not quoting minimum limits. We have 3 package levels, all above minimum limits.
I signed up for the $15 a lead, am I still signed up?
Not unless you became an advantage subscriber.
Because of member feedback, Project CAP switched from the initial $15/lead model to a flat rate subscription model. If you haven’t signed up as an Advantage Subscriber since November, you now only receive the basic listing. To benefit from an enhanced profile, preferred positioning in results and listing in “Get a Quote” search, you need to sign up to become an Advantage Subscriber now.
*Note: if you originally completed an enhanced profile you don’t need to recreate it. The profile will be reactivated when you sign up
My profile was on the site but now it’s not, what happened?
You may not have become an Advantage Subscriber. You must be a subscriber to have the enhanced profile display.
I am having a difficult time creating a profile, can you help?
Yes! Email David Roeber from Project CAP and he will send you an excel document to complete. He will then upload it for you. (David rocks)
Agencies in another town are showing up before me! Why?
The search results work like this:
- Advantage Subscribers within a wider radius show up first
- Basic listings are then displayed based upon distance to center of zip code and any parameters set by the consumer (i.e. - if they want an agency with evening hours). To show up in the first group, simply become an Advantage Subscriber and make sure your profile is complete
- Only Advantage Subscribers show up in “Get a Quote” searches
Are agencies actually getting leads?
Yes, many agencies are getting leads - both through “Get a Quote” and “Find Your Agent.” Both are driving consumers to agencies, it isn’t only about quoted leads.
As we move out of the transition period of getting carriers & agents live on the site, enhanced promotion will drive even more traffic. Don’t expect leads flooding in overnight, it will grow with momentum.

How do I get a lead?
You will receive an email when a quote or contact is requested. Once you click the link, you will be guided to all of their information.
Do leads go to multiple agencies at once?
No. It is important that you get in touch with your prospect as soon as possible as you are their only contact. It is your lead. Go close it!
What carriers are on the site in NY?
In NY, our “Get a Quote” carriers are NYCM, Progressive, Central, Safeco, Preferred Mutual, Selective and Main Street America. We will be making exciting announcements about additional carriers in the coming weeks.
I don’t write with any of those companies, should I still sign up for the Advantage Subscription?
YES! Remember that leads are also coming through the “Find Your Agent” search and subscribers show up first with big enhanced profiles.
What are the terms?
By signing up now you benefit from securing a low monthly rate of $39, locked in for all of 2014. The agreement is basically month to month, you can cancel any time.
OK, I’m in. How do I sign up?
