As a producer at a captive agency, you’re passionate about helping customers. You love what you do, but also feel frustrated over your limited coverage offering. With all that knowledge and experience under your belt, you’re ready for your next move – owning an agency.

 

 Of course, there’s trepidation about starting your own business. It’s a big step with many added responsibilities and potential pitfalls you want to avoid. Choosing the right path — and a trusted partner — can make all the difference for your long-term success. Keep these considerations in mind as you explore the exciting road to agency ownership.

 

Carrier Access

Finding insurance products that are a good fit for your customer is essential to providing best-in-class service. After all, coming up short and trying to shoehorn mismatched coverage isn’t a good way to do business. And it’s certainly no way to create clients for life.

 

We Insure has already built relationships with more than 100 top-tier carriers. You’ll have the freedom and flexibility to provide superior service and enjoy greater peace of mind knowing you won’t come up empty handed when trying to meet clients’ needs. Plus, you’ll have the potential to maximize your closing ratio, better positioning your agency for financial success.

 

Financial Options

The monetary requirement for buying into a franchise may be a top-of-mind concern, but having the flexibility of multiple financing options can ease your transition from producer to owner. We Insure offers one of the lowest cost franchise options available on the market — but we also provide superior value for your investment — including top-tier commissions. After all, if a franchise is inexpensive but doesn’t give you the tools to succeed, it’s no bargain.

 

Guidance and Mentorship

Without a firm foundation, starting a new agency can be an uphill climb. You know the industry, and you’ve got plenty of client experience, but the business side may still present new challenges. Having a knowledgeable, supportive partner can alleviate those concerns. We Insure will help guide you through the agency startup process. We offer a professional mentorship program, connecting you with other successful agency owners who’ve walked in your shoes.

 

Back-end Support

Some franchises that offer support don’t advertise that those services can take a while to kick in. You shouldn’t have to wait 90 days, for example, to get the help you need from your franchisor. Those initial days and weeks of a client relationship can be formative and crucial to the success of your business.

 

At We Insure, owners begin receiving support starting on Day One. Our service team operates as an extension of your office, providing support from sales to underwriting to claims, policy servicing, renewals — and cross-selling. The We Insure support team will be busy capturing sales opportunities during client interactions, allowing you to focus on growing your book of business.

 

IT and Marketing

With We Insure in your corner, you won’t have to build a website or set up your email, phone system, online review system or any of your social channels. We’ll even provide social media and newsletter content to help keep you connected with your customers — and you have options to scale your marketing and grow your digital footprint. We Insure offers a video marketing program to create videos custom branded for your agency that post on your YouTube channel at a very affordable price.
