Get a Turning 65 List and start marketing to people who are aging into Medicare eligibility.
If you are a Medicare Insurance Agent, there are 2 great ways to reach your target market:
Advertise to people who are already 65 years old and who are eligible for Medicare. (This age group can be difficult to convince because they are often already well informed about their insurance options or have already made a decision.)
Advertise to people who are just about to turn 65!
People often make long-term, insurance and supplemental insurance decisions just before they turn 65 years old; so a Turning 65 List can give Medicare Insurance Agents a huge edge on their competition and help them reach people just before they make any long-term insurance decisions.
If you’re a Medicare Insurance Agent, it can be extremely beneficial to find these people and start marketing to them before their birthday. The timing is crucial. If you reach them when they are still learning about their options and they most likely have not yet made any insurance decisions, it increases your chances of winning them over and gaining a new customer.
Turning 65 mailing lists are a perfect way for medicare insurance agents to reach the right audience and gain new customers.
You can find People Turning 65 in any area of the USA. Just select the zip codes, cities, counties or states that you want to target, and then select the Birth Months you need. Example: People Turning 65 in July-December 2014 in 5 counties in Florida.
Build your mailing list online and download your Turning 65 list to computer in just minutes.
