Here is a quick run-down on what you will find in this bulletin:
Compulife Obtains SSL Certificate for WebQuotes Server
SSL Certificate Coming For www.term4sale.com
Term4sale Price Change April 1st
Our Focus Shifts To Canadian Customers
These topics will be dealt with in more detail throughout this bulletin.
NOTE: For Compulife subscribers paying their accounts by credit cards, our system transfers you to our bank’s website for payments to be completed. Like all banks, it features a SSL Certificate and your personal information is secure.
In recent months, several subscribers have begun asking for the SSL Certificate to increase compatibility when linking sites and servers. Typically, when you have a SSL Certificate on your site’s server and you place a link to another server on your page which does not have a SSL Certificate, your page with display warnings. In particular, this becomes an issue for customers who choose to “frame” the new responsive Webquote page on their site. The warnings end up appearing before the page is even generated. Updating the server with the SSL Certificate resolves these issues.
NOTE: If your site does NOT have an SSL Certificate, and you were not having issues before, you will have no issues with this change. The problem only occurred if your server has an SSL Certificate and attempted to display material from a site without an SSL Certificate. The reverse situation is NOT a problem.
One of the greatest advantages of the new Webquote option is the ability to make a “frame” on your webpage and place the new Compulife WebQuote option into that “frame.” Our Webquote results page is designed to fit into the space you allocate, looking great every time. Those wanting to build their own messages and options around the web page can do so easily. More importantly, if your site is responsive, the new responsive quote page works perfectly within that site.
NOTE: You will notice that the first three results on Google search are paid ads. We did utilize paid ads for a time. However, after evaluating the outcome from using the ads, we were not impressed by the results. Our standings are generate enough traffic on their own.
The page counter at www.term4sale.com has now passed 3,700,000. We anticipate passing 4 MILLION by mid-summer!
Our google analytics show that we are getting an average of about 700 “unique” users per day (some days are higher than others). This means we are seeing about 20,000 “unique” visitors per month. Those visiting the site multiple times make up the rest of the traffic. Some of these repeated users are agents who are using the site rather than paying for the software. We’ve noticed that those visiting agents come to the site, and stay (they don’t bounce) telling the search engines that our site is important to visitors. While we don’t generate income from these agents, we do generate traffic thus keeping our ratings high. This is good news for our paying agents featured on Term4Sale. Higher ratings means more referrals for those agents listed at Term4Sale.
NOTE: You can still add additional zip codes for 2016 (if you have not exceeded your limits), at the old price level, if you do so before March 31st.
The cost to purchase a zip code is increasing from $1.25 per month (payable to the end of the calendar year) to $1.50 per month.
Standard license subscribers (“Compulife Advanced”) who are buying more than 90 zip codes, who were paying $1.50 per month for each zip code over 90, will have that price increased to $2 per month.
Once again, the new prices are effective April 1st.
IMPORTANT: These changes do not affect those who have already bought and paid for their zip codes for 2016. Only additional purchases made on or after April 1st will have the new prices applied.
Renewals for 2017 will be invoiced at the new prices. Further, Standard License subscribers who were able to purchase up to a total of 360 zip codes in 2016 will now be offered up to 320 in 2017. We encourage those moving from 360 to 320 zip codes to take steps to analyze your results from this year’s contacts to ensure that you identify the best zip codes from your current group.
Make sure to watch out for the other exciting changes we have planned in the upcoming months!!
