This is less technical, and a warning to those getting involved in automated lead generation systems… and those using it.
Nine months ago I, as a consumer, tried using one of them online “Car Insurance Quote” systems. It was powered by NetQuote (which I found out recently). I know they’re all garbage, but it would at least get me in contact with some insurance companies to survey the options available, as my life has changed significantly since I started out with my first car insurance (big city to small town, single to married, apartment street parking to garage parking, from 24 to 32).
I did this because my insurance was coming up for renewal …
This morning, I’m sitting at my computer coding, and I get 4 emails at the same time, about a car insurance quote I had requested (I hadn’t!). A few minutes later my phone rang, someone was calling about my car insurance quote online.
