Outlook Life, a website that offers instant life insurance quotes even to people with health conditions, marks its 10th year in business. It may be the longest continually running website to specialize in impaired risk life insurance on the web.
Online PR News ??? 29-August-2012?????A desire to help people with health problems in finding??affordable life insurance??inspired the creation of Outlook Life back in 2002. “I was buying leads at the time, and found that you could choose between people with perfect health or those with health conditions such as diabetes, MS and heart disease”,says Peg Mace, now COO of Outlook Life. “I found it challenging and fulfilling to find affordable coverage for people with health problems. That passion introduced me to like minded professionals in the impaired risk life insurance industry.”
Those business relationships led Mrs. Mace to a precocious young man studying to get his Bachelor’s Degree in Network & Global Communications Management, with a focus in Business Entrepreneurship and Electrical Engineering, from Arizona State University and DeVry University. While still in college, David Racich, now CEO of Outlook Holding Group, LLC, started developing websites that would offer free life insurance quotes instantly.
In fact, the first website Mr. Racich developed was called InstantLifeQuotes.com, and it is still in existence today. “I have always felt that the internet would become the hub for life insurance purchases in the future”, states David. “This has proven itself out in the past 10 years. Online life insurance is the fastest growing segment of the life insurance industry today. Online Life Insurance sales represent more than 20 percent of the policies sold with more than $300 million in life insurance premium initiated online each year.”
Outlook Life has learned many lessons as it has navigated the uncharted waters of online life insurance sales, especially in the impaired risk and senior products arena. “One thing we discovered is that when you need to spend so much time and personal attention on difficult cases, you are not going to grow big, fast”, says Peg. “We have found that finding quality employees, training them to the hilt, and doing an excellent job for our clients is what keeps all of our team invigorated. And in the process, we are getting more and more referrals, especially when they see that the same person who helped them 10 years ago is still here to assist them with their needs or the needs of their friends and family.”
While??diabetes life insurance??is the most popular offering, Outlook Life’s customers are broadening to include more family members, most of whom do not have a health problem. And, OutlookLife.com, with the help of OutlookAnnuity.com, are also getting more involved in helping their clients reach long term financial goals. Barry Franzen, Outlook Life’s Advanced Estate Solutions Specialist, has become a whiz at incorporating Annuities and??Indexed Universal Life??into portfolios so that clients can have some “safe” strategies to help them keep an income stream coming in during retirement. “By utilizing a combination of products and strategies”, states Mr. Franzen, “people can set stage now to supplement Social Security later, so that their Golden Years do not turn into a nightmare.”
A 10th anniversary commemorative ribbon cutting will be held at the Hastings Chamber of Commerce conference room at 11:45 AM on Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012.The public is invited.
