The LIVE Hot Transfer Market Leader -

Bankrate is setting the standard for lead suppliers today

DoublePositive Marketing Group, the industry leader in LIVE Hot Transfers, announced today that it has formed a private label partnership with Bankrate Insurance, a division of Bankrate, Inc.

Bankrate Insurance, through its acquisition of Insureme and Netquote, is largest seller of insurance leads. The partnership with DoublePositive allows them to add Hot Transfers to their offerings so that their customers can not only purchase the market’s best internet leads, but the market’s best Hot Transfer services as well.

“The requests for Hot Transfers have increased over the years as the average order sizes have increased. Hot Transfers allow some clients to effectively consume more leads per hour per sales professional, so it was critical that we find the best Hot Transfer solution available to offer to our clients. That search resulted in the selection of DoublePositive,” said Bankrate Insurance President Paul Ford.

Bankrate’s customers will still purchase Bankrate leads as they do now, but can also choose to have the Bankrate LIVE Hot Transfer service turn those data leads into qualified and interested in-bound phone calls to their sales team. This will allow the client’s sales team to do what they do best, sell.

Each customer will have their own private credentials to the proprietary Bankrate Hot Transfer Platform, and here they will be able to listen to recordings, view dispositions, and put their account on hold at any time.

“Bankrate is setting the standard for lead suppliers today,” said DoublePositive VP Brian Ocheltree. “We’re proud to have been selected by this industry giant, and our partnership should provide massive growth and ROI improvements across the entire insurance lead ecosystem, from which we all will benefit.
