This guy paid an expired meter and left a perfect note for the motorist
Who doesn’t love a good insurance salesman story?
Finding new business to sell insurance to does not sound extremely exciting, but one agent figured out a pretty slick way to entice potential clients.
A photo of a note that was left on a car with an expired meter hit the front page of Reddit on Wednesday.
“I paid your parking meter for you … imagine what else I’m willing to do to protect your car,” the note reads. Attached to the note is the business card for Andrew Cooney, a car insurance salesman based out of Rochester, Minnesota.
We reached out to Cooney to confirm that this note wasn’t fake, and he told us via email that this is indeed a tactic he uses to market to new clients.
