Solihull mother of two Julia Mann has taken on the Big Boys and launched her very own Insurance Quote Comparison website www.quotemequick.co.uk.
Online PR News – 30-November-2013 – Solihull, UK – The peculiar thing about this site is that the domain name was bought 14 years ago – 3 years before the UKs first insurance comparison website was launched in 2002.
“I met my husband at our place of work in 1999”, explained Julia. “In fact, before we even were an item we spent most of our time talking about business, as it was both our ambition to one day start our own.
“Soon after we met I had spent a very frustrating afternoon trying to get car insurance quotes when it occurred to me that it would be great if I could just go on the internet, fill a form in and get multiple quotes back very quickly. I could then compare quotes and buy the cheapest quote. The name Quote me Quick then popped into my head! I discussed it with him and the next thing I knew he bought the domain name himself before I managed to do it! He now jokes that the only reason I married him was to get half the ownership of the domain name – perhaps he’s right ;-)
So, why you may be wondering did it take Julia 14 years to launch her website?
“The answer firstly was down to the fact that I didn’t have a clue how!” said Julia.” There were no such sites around at that time and I didn’t have any web design skills myself. Then after that life just got in the way. I got married, had 2 babies, as well as starting up a computer repair business and franchise with my husband during that period!”
“Running a business with 2 young children is exhausting, stressful and very time consuming and it was only recently that I was able to devote enough time to it as well as having someone in my employ that could help me develop it. It’s very exciting though!”
And so it was launched! The main difference between this site and some of the more well-known brands is its simplicity of design and content, as well as offering a more personal touch.
“Busy mums like me just want to get a quote as fast as possible, and not have to wade through reams of articles, forums and other fluff! So I made it as simple as I could,” remarked Julia.
QuotemeQuick.co.uk (http://www.quotemequick.co.uk) currently offers insurance quote comparison for the main types of insurance such as car insurance, home insurance and life insurance as well as more niche products including campervan, landlord insurance and surgery insurance. With insurance premiums rising all the time it’s a great way for people to quickly and easily ensure they get a cheap insurance quote.
Feedback has been positive so far:
“Just been on and gave it a try for a home insurance quote. It's by far the easiest comparison site in terms of bringing a relevant quote back. Really easy to use - well thought out!!” Sue Burrows, Solihull.
“It’s a challenging area to launch into as the competition is very fierce, but I’m undaunted so far and intend to grow the site over time and offer customers a quick and easy quoting experience!” commented Julia.
