More and more life insurance buyers are becoming self-directed and using direct response channels as their preferred method of purchasing life insurance.   Recent trends in the direct-to-consumer sector have seen accelerated interest from big box stores, electronic retailers, search engine companies, banks, credit unions and other companies that command vast audiences.  LIDMA is the primary organization dedicated to supporting business and professionals who are active in this new and rapidly expanding channel.
