As an FMO, we're always looking for ways to support independent agents and help them grow their businesses.
That's one of the reasons we were so excited to become an Integrity Marketing Group partner. Our partnership allows us to collaborate with industry legends and offer more tools and resources to agents than ever before.
We're also able to support agents in new ways by integrating with Integrity's extensive infrastructure. So, what perks do you get as an independent agent?
Here are all the unique benefits our contracted agents are eligible for because of our incredible partnership with Integrity.

In LeadCENTER, you can choose from a variety of lead types for multiple products (Medicare, final expense, etc.). These leads are sourced from a variety of channels including direct mail, social media, and search engines.
The best part is you can track all of your lead information using the built-in CRM. Leads are affordable, thanks bulk discounts and a "buy-per-lead" (BPL) model. Integrity LeadCENTER works directly with lead providers as well as their own proprietary sources to offer the newest and most exclusive leads nationwide.
As long as you are a contracted agent with New Horizons, you can get access to LeadCENTER. Your login is the same as your MedicareCENTER username and password.
3) CSG Trends & Insights
CSG Actuarial not only does quoting, but they provide agents with market data, too. In the past, these tools were very expensive, but now that CSG is an Integrity partner, you can access them all for no cost.
