Case Study: ValChoice

By Ashley Baldwin

Company Background

Dan Karr is the founder and CEO of ValChoice.com, a company with a mission to “give every consumer in America a free analysis of their insurance company.” After an awful car accident, Karr was unable to recover almost $100,000 worth of medical expenses from his health and auto insurance companies. As a husband and a father of three, the financial strain put pressure on his entire family. “After that experience, I vowed to prevent this from happening to any other family by leveraging my technology background to bring transparency to the insurance industry,” said Karr. That’s when ValChoice.com was born.

ValChoice.com provides its customers with a detailed, easy-to-understand analysis of the value, protection and services that insurance companies offer. As the company website states, ValChoice.com is “an independent, unbiased and trusted source of information about insurance companies.”

The event focused on WordPress professionals was hosted within walking distance of the WCUS venue in Commerce Square at the heart of Philadelphia.

By Ashley Baldwin

WordPress was long regarded as a blogging platform, but in the last few years it has made a name for itself as the development platform for many large-scale websites.
