According to Ken Treske, president of Vente, an Experian Company, the demand for insurance can be triggered by a number of specific individual circumstances such as a new home, baby or dissatisfaction with existing providers. "Unlike other industries, insurance marketers can rapidly steal market share by focusing on changes at the individual level," said Treske. "The best tactic for accomplishing this is via the Internet because of reporting technology which allows you to reach qualified consumers in real-time."
