WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2013

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Insurance Forums, the largest
community of insurance agents on the web, has worked hard to enhance its
footprint and visibility to agents and consumers in the United States.
Recently, forum management took control of LinkedIn's largest insurance group,
which boasts more than 100,000 members. These members will no doubt help to
swell the ranks at Insurance Forums, fostering an even richer environment for
professional development and networking. The forums received more than 97,000
unique visitors in January 2012; current membership stands at over 38,500.
This strategic maneuvering by Insurance Forums promises to offer the Insurance
Carrier community a powerful method for providing the best, most reliable
information to agents and producers about product news, industry updates and
the availability of white papers and webinars.

Insurance Forums covers every aspect of the insurance industry, from health
and life insurance to auto insurance, lead generation, cold calling, marketing
and technology.

The main objective of Insurance Forums is to provide a space for agents to
share ideas, strategies and success stories. Insurance sales is a cutthroat
business, with many fledgling agents failing to make a living. Unscrupulous
companies sometimes promise the moon only to deliver thankless drudgery and no
prospects. Many disillusioned agents simply drop out of the career, leaving a
shortage of qualified, talented agents to write and sell policies. Demand is
not the problem: There has never been a lack of consumers needing guidance in
meeting their insurance needs. Instead, the insurance industry has been
deficient in support and professional development initiatives to further the
success of new agents or ensure that veteran agents remain at the top of their
game. Insurance Forums has filled that deficiency by creating an online
environment that encourages collaboration and encouragement.

"Our team has worked hard to make Insurance Forums the leading community of
its kind," said owner Sam Melamed. "Last month, the forums generated more than
1 million page views, and we expect that number to only grow. Insurance Forums
provides a meaningful service for its members, as well as offering a powerful
opportunity for advertisers to get significant brand exposure. In the near
term, we expect to continue adding to the member rolls, solidifying our place
as the prime destination for insurance agents across the nation."

Insurance Forums plans to welcome insurance carrier advertisers to the site in
the coming weeks.

Registration with Insurance Forums is free and open to anyone. Insurance
Forums does not disclose any personally identifiable information to third
