Quote of the Day:  "Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over, but expecting different results."
 Albert Einstein


BenefitPlace (.biz) and BP trade Show (.com), working seamlessly together, have rolled-out a new Platform for Insurance Cos, MGAs, GA, Brokers, Agents, TPAs, and all involved in the various Sectors of the Insurance and Benefits Industries to Efficiently and Cost-Effectively:
  • Deliver Qualified Prospects

Utilizing BenefitPlace (BP)- A Research & Information Center for the Insurance and Benefits Industries - and BP Trade Show (BPTS) - a 24/7 virtual trade show for the Industries - the Platform, focusing on SEO, provides:
  • An upgraded, "Gold Listing" in the BP Directory appropriate to the Company's Markets.

A Traditional "Brick and Mortar" 3 Day Trade Show can cost $2000 to $5000 for an 8 x 10 Booth, plus the travel, time lost for staff, and lodging cost, etc.  Vistiors must travel and often pay admission!

BP and BPTS are open 24 hours a day/365 days a year!  For less than $16.00 a Day the Platform is more Efficient and Cost-Effective!  Visitors are enabled to utilize the internet in the comfort of their office or home  in their Insurance & Benefits "Decision-Making" process

While "Inbound Marketing" will not replace the traditional "Outbound Marketing" tools it will make it possible to reach a larger constituency more effectively at a fraction of the cost with the capacity to Measure Your ROI!

As a famous marketeer commented about his "Outbound Marketing" budget, "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don't know which half!".
