You actually dont need to purchase an entire state. An agent (or local agency) could easily buy airtime on a local broadcast station and begin taking leads within days.
I dont know if anyone is doing this, so I dont know how successful it would be, but I do know, sometimes for us, its cheaper to purchase local broadcast throughout the state than it is to purchase the entire state on cable.

It amazes me agents spend so much on what amounts to the contact information for someone who had the INTENT to acquire insurance 3, 6, 18+ months ago. Advertising technology has come a long way and I think the insurance vertical is ready for a shift to use big data and machine learning to target consumers smarter and more effectively.
We partnered up with a Vendor I met at LeadsCon who went through our clients and figured out 50 different demographics with our customer base to help target more prospects that are most likely to buy.
I wasnt familiar with this method until then. But it made perfect sense.
Its definatly a game changer. Other industries have been doing this for years, but as usual, the insurance industry, especially final expense, is the slowest to improve.
