It's no secret that We Insure has been expanding at a rapid rate in Florida and Georgia throughout the past 9 years. Even after such a short period of time in the industry, their presence is evident – with 80+ locations, and countless awards and achievements. They've made it known that this success stems from building and maintaining relationships – with their Carrier Partners, their insureds, and of course – their Agency Owners.

Amber has great experience in the insurance industry, both as an agent and a general manager.  As she developed her property and casualty insurance knowledge, Amber grew a passion to help people find insurance coverage that they need.  She found it important to help them understand the coverage they are getting and why. “I want to make sure all of my clients are getting the most comprehensive coverage for their money with the most financially sound and reputable companies available to them. I want my clients to rest assured that they are with an agent that really has their best interest at heart.”

For time Amber was interested in opening an independent agency. While looking into the advantages of owning a We Insure Agency, she recognized the advantages of being a We Insure agency owner as opposed of being an independent agency owner.  The access to over 150 companies, the customer service and support team to handle your non-revenue producing service work, and more. “After managing nine employees and running a local independent agency office I was able to see first-hand how much work it is just to maintain quality employees and make sure the office and technology was up and running every day.”  She adds, “I realized quickly how valuable a service and support team would be in giving me the time to really focus on networking and reaching out to clientele, to develop those relationships and bring the best products to them.”

Growing on the passion for helping others, Amber opened her own insurance franchise with We Insure, named Bradford Insurance LLC in Navarre, FL.  Now she will be able to serve her local community and provide the best rates and policies.  “I believe in treating people the way I would like to be treated and regardless of the circumstance, respect and customer service will always be valued in my agency above all else.”

“I am so excited to be a part of Team We! With the support of the We Insure Team, I knew I had to give it my best shot and try to introduce the panhandle to the We Insure way.”

Ashley Duckett is an experienced insurance professional and has worked in multiple lines of insurance.  Coming from a family of business owners, Ashley stated, “entrepreneurship has always been a dream of mine, as many in my family have owned their own successful business.  It’s in my blood.”  When she learned about We Insure she knew it was the best choice to allow her to be her own boss. “I wish I found about We Insure sooner!” Ashley said.  She attended a meet and greet at the corporate office and she quickly made a change to benefit her career as well as her clients.   

Ashley appreciates the We Insure business model and having access to top-rated insurance companies.  Her past experience included working for an insurance company with limited insurance products.  When Ashley learned about We Insure, she said “one thing of the many things that drew me to We Insure was the market availability.  Knowing that I wouldn’t ever have to turn another customer away because I couldn’t offer them the right insurance product was a relief!  Now that I am a We Insure Agency Owner, I enjoy having options for everyone to meet their specific needs,” said Ashley.   

We Insure Agency Owners are provided all the tools needed to be successful. The business model at We Insure includes back-end support, service teams, technology and administrative support, keeping agents focused on the customer.  That support level also attracted Ashley to We Insure, saying “my number one priority is customer service, and We Insure gives me the access to go above and beyond for my customers.”

It's no secret that We Insure has been expanding at a rapid rate in Florida and Georgia throughout the past 10 years. Even after such a short period of time in the industry, their presence is evident – with 90+ locations, and countless awards and achievements. They've made it known that this success stems from building and maintaining relationships with their carrier partners, their insureds, and of course their agency owners.

Katie has more than 20 years of customer service experience and specializes in home, auto and business insurance.  As she developed her property and casualty insurance knowledge, Katie grew a passion to help people find the right insurance coverage that they need.  She found it important to help them understand the coverage they are getting and why. “I want my clients to feel confident that they have an agent that really has their best interest at heart.”
 

For some time Katie was interested in opening an independent agency. While looking into the advantages of owning a We Insure Agency, she recognized the advantages of being a We Insure agency owner as opposed of being an independent agency owner.  The access to over 150 companies, the customer service and support team to handle your non-revenue producing service work, and more.  She adds, “I realized how valuable a service and support team would be in giving me the time to really focus my client’s needs. It allows me to treat each customer as a VIP.”  
Katie’s goal for her new agency is to be “a growing and thriving business that exceeds all customer expectations.  I want to build an agency that has loyal customers that feel that all their assets are properly insured and worry free.”   With her ambition and dedication to provide an exceptional customer experience, Katie is sure to be successful.

Magazine Unveils Its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000 [news_date] => 2019-08-14 01:00:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1565804420_2019 inc.png [news_description] => For the 3rd Time, We Insure Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 3551

NEW YORK, August 14, 2019Inc. magazine today revealed that We Insure is No. 3551 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.  

Founded by Phil Visali, We Insure has grown tremendously since established in 2009.  Phil said, “We Insure is the premier insurance franchise. Passionate about being the very best independent agency solution, we offer our agency owners advanced technologies, more than 150 top-rated insurance carriers to shop from,  and a full support team. Agents can focus one hundred percent on doing what they do best, selling.”
 

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.  

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.  

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
 

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.

Independent Research Data Shows 8 Out of 10 Veteran Franchise Owners Would Recommend Their Franchise to Others .

Jacksonville, FL November 2019 – We Insure was identified by independent research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of just 80 franchises to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list.  

We Insure is an independent insurance solution offering home, auto, business, life insurance and more.  Our agents have access to more than 150 top-rated insurance companies allowing them to find the best fit for their customers. Not only do we have the carriers, we allow our agents to focus on selling while we take care of the back-end support.   

Franchise Business Review, a market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only ranking of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes rankings of the top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as guides throughout the year ranking the top franchises in specific sectors.  

To identify the companies on the list, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from over 25,000 franchise owners, of which just over 10% were veterans, representing over 250 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.

The most recent data shows that eight out of 10 off veteran franchise owners who were surveyed would recommend their franchise company to another franchise candidate and indicate that they trust and respect their franchisor.

We Insure franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.  

“The reality is that very few of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are rated highly by their franchise owners,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “That’s the whole reason we do what we do, and that is help prospective franchisees understand which franchises are the best opportunities, based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. The 80 companies named in this year’s report received the highest ratings from the veterans who own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”  

“It’s an honor to be featured as a Top Franchise for Veterans," said Deb Franklin, Co-CEO of We Insure. "Our organization supports our franchisees with comprehensive training, quality support, and a team environment.  At We Insure, we are proud to cultivate veterans into a career where they can continue their passion to protect and serve their community.”   Visit www.FranchiseBusinessReview.com to see the full description of the 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans.

We’ve disrupted the franchise insurance business by offering agents the best of both worlds — the competitive pricing of large carriers and the greater choice that’s typically only been available through independent agents … until now.

As an agent, We Insure will give you access to over 100 top-rated insurance carriers. You can offer your customers a wide range of products to meet all their insurance needs at some of the most competitive price points available.

With a wide array of carriers to choose from, you’ll attract and service a larger cross-section of customers to grow your book of business. We’ll never ask you to push specific products or carriers, so you can unleash your inner entrepreneur and position your insurance business exactly the way you want to. Market yourself as a broad-based, full-service agency — or create a specialty niche to set yourself apart.

As a captive agent, customers will comparison shop other carriers against you. But with We Insure, you’ll do the comparing for them, offering your clientele many options for all their insurance needs. That means greater opportunities for new clients and higher retention rates. And you’ll be able to focus more on growing your book of business instead of just trying to maintain or replace waffling customers.

When economies tighten up, consumers look for opportunities to save. And now is an important time to be in a position to offer value to customers. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes its toll on world economies and personal finances, families will want to stretch their household budgets as much as possible. And it’s important they don’t sacrifice the critical protection that insurance affords. As a We Insure agent, you’ll have access to superior pricing from top-rated carriers — and that means more ways to help families save on the important insurance coverage they need.

We think the choice is clear. Why settle for less-than-competitive pricing as an independent agent or limit your selection as a captive agent? We Insure offers you greater access, better pricing and superior back-end service that lets you focus on selling and growing.

Become a disruptor, join the revolution and call We Insure today to find out about franchise opportunities available in your area.

COVID-19 Response: To help protect the health of our employees and franchisees, many of our physical offices are currently closed. But our corporate operations are ongoing and we continue to service our franchises. If you’re interested in a franchise opportunity, please call 1-855-483-3901. We encourage you to stay informed and stay safe by following all governmental health and safety directives. We’re all in this together, and We Insure will continue to serve our communities and franchises during and after this crisis.

Lauderdale, Florida. The company has been racking up the accolades for its tremendous growth and franchisee satisfaction. Inc 5000 recognized We Insure in 2018 and 2019 as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, and independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) included it as one of just 80 businesses in its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list. FBR also recognized the company as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020.  

We Insure is on a fast track for national expansion, having recently extended its reach into Georgia Texas, and Mississippi. The franchise is receiving agency operator interest from those with captive insurance companies looking to give their customers more choice and real estate brokers who want to grow their service offerings with a recession-resistant ancillary business.
 

Co-owners of We Insure South Florida, Tyler Arrington and Mimi Stroud, chose We Insure for a variety of reasons. Arrington says, “The company’s customer service platform, variety of market availability and accessible product lines were the benefits that initially drew us to We Insure.” Stroud adds, "Getting a more in-depth look at how We Insure operates, the support and resources offered and the innovative technologies being used confirmed our decision.”
 

Phil Visali, CEO of We Insure, adds, “We’re excited about the caliber of our new franchise partners and their ability to attract new customers at opening. They tell us that our training sets them up to confidently start working with clients on day one.  Our carrier access makes them very competitive in the marketplace.”
 

We Insure has partnerships with the top national carriers, and more than 100 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. It has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

Now accepting new customers, We Insure South Florida is focused on providing the highest quality customer service and the most competitive pricing in the tri-county area. Using an expansive variety of property carriers, they are dedicated to finding the best value for those who entrust them with their insurance needs. Both Tyler and Mimi are Ft. Lauderdale natives with nearly 20 years of combined insurance experience and both are licensed in property and casualty insurance, life and health insurance.

More than 9,000 franchisees representing over 153 low-cost brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between July 2018 and February 2020.  

We Insure’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.  

“Many people never consider buying a franchise because they think they can’t afford it. But what they don’t know is that there are a number of very solid business opportunities out there that can provide the satisfaction and perks of business ownership but don’t require a huge financial investment,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “The low-cost franchises that made this year’s list are excellent options for those who are looking to make the leap to business ownership.”    

“Making the 2020 Top Low-Cost Franchise Review is a testament to the satisfaction of our franchisees, and the value added in this unique and exceptional franchise opportunity," said Co-CEO, Deb Franklin. "The support and access We Insure offers the agency owners is a remarkable value. We have an amazing service team, and the support of marketing, technology, and administration.”

The cheapest policy isn’t always a bargain. When it comes to auto and homeowners insurance, your “bargain” could end up breaking the bank if you ever need to use your coverage only to find out it’s inadequate. We Insure can help you find the right coverage for your needs at the right price. Here are some reasons price may not always be the most important consideration when shopping for your insurance. 

More Assets to Protect. States have minimum coverage requirements, but this minimum should only be your starting point. There are a number of circumstances that may make more coverage a smarter choice. For example, you might have a valuable art collection, expensive electronics, antique jewelry or other possessions that a standard policy won’t cover. You may need to purchase an additional rider to protect valuable or excluded items.

Greater Liability Risks. If you have a profession or lifestyle that carries greater liability risks, then you need coverage that reflects that. If you’re a public figure seen as someone with “deep pockets,” you may want to consider not only higher liability coverage, but also an umbrella policy that can extend basic coverage if you’re ever the target of a lawsuit.

Policy “Extras.” Things like accident forgiveness, roadside assistance, vanishing deductibles, sewer backup coverage and other benefits might not come standard with a bare bones policy. However, these features may give you extra protection and peace of mind well worth the added expense in the long run.  

Full Replacement Value Coverage. Your homeowners insurance policy can either reimburse you for the full replacement value of your possessions or their depreciated value. For example, if someone steals your 5-year-old big-screen TV, a policy with full replacement value would pay you the amount it would cost to replace that TV with a brand-new one. A policy that only covers depreciated value, however, would only reimburse you for the current value of a used, 5-year-old TV.

Superior Financial Strength. In the event that customers have to file many claims at once, such as after a tornado, would your insurance carrier have enough funds to pay them all out? You’re trusting your insurer to be there for you when you need them, so make sure they’re in good financial standing. Check your carrier’s ratings with A.M. Best. We Insure can offer you many choices from the nation’s top–rated carriers

Better Service. A We Insure agent can help you navigate your coverage, answer policy questions and assist you should you ever need to file a claim. Bargain coverage can sometimes come at the expense of better customer service. Poor service on your insurance can be especially problematic since you’re most likely to use it during a crisis. If you want a superior level of service when it comes to your insurance, then you may have to be willing to pay a little more to get it. 

Don’t Skimp on Your Most Important Protection

Good insurance is the foundation of every sound financial plan because even one uninsured or underinsured loss can undo decades of saving and responsible money management. We Insure can help you find coverage from a top-rated carrier at an affordable price. Our agents are knowledgeable and have access to competitive prices from top-rated carriers. Contact your local agent today and discover the power of WE.

You’ve heard the old real estate saying about home value and desirability: location, location, location. Well, when it comes to insurance, what consumers in the market for home, auto or business insurance policies want is choice, choice, choice. Consumers seek out a variety of plans so they can customize the policy to their specific needs and have a wider price range to select from. 
 
As an insurance provider, you want access to a variety of top carriers so that you’ll have better choices for insurance and the ability to provide clients the most suitable coverage for their needs along with the most competitive pricing. When you can lead on product and pricing, you will win new business in the short term and position yourself well for the long-term customer experience race. 
 
While there are many components to ensuring customer satisfaction and retention, we believe that having access to a broad market of insurance providers, including niche products, is what brings new customers to your agency. Market access means you’ll have a better chance of offering the right product to meet the needs of every potential client and more options to help them save. 
 
Aside from the customer experience benefits, market access gives our franchise partners a greater ability to specialize and establish niche branding for their agencies. For instance, you may consider specializing in homeowners insurance and partner with mortgage brokers — or perhaps you’ll be the go-to agency for the special needs of brewpubs in your area.
 
If you’re weighing the pros and cons of becoming an agent with a captive insurance company versus going it alone, consider how an independent franchise model offers a winning combination of choice and market access. We Insure breaks the chains that limit captive agents while providing exceptional back-end support, agent-friendly marketing and operations processes. 
 
Perhaps you’ve already decided that the independent model is your best opportunity for success in the marketplace. If that’s the case, it’s wise to remember that, like any startup, building your own insurance agency from the ground up can take a number of years before you can meet the key business drivers to profitability — one driver being the commission structure. 
 
As a small agency, it can be nearly impossible to achieve the tier one commission structure of an established national agency, and the greater profitability that comes with it, like the We Insure franchise model offers. This is what makes a We Insure franchise so appealing to insurance pros who’ve determined that the independent agency is the route they want to take. 
 
The power of WE means more choice and more freedom to create the type of business that’s right for you. Call 855.483.3901 or contact us at franchise@weinsuregroup.com to inquire about We Insure franchise opportunities available in your area.

And Why Would You Want One Agent for All Your Insurance Needs? [news_date] => 2020-06-05 15:55:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1591386730_Captive Agent Blog.jpg [news_description] =>
If you’re researching insurance options, you’ve probably heard something about captive insurance agents. But what exactly does that mean? A captive agent is simply industry-speak for someone who works for only one company. The insurance companies that advertise on national television are generally captives, and their local agents work for the corporation and only offer their policies. 
 
When agents are exclusive to one company, they can provide you just one quote for an insurance policy. And the only way to decrease the rate is by reducing the policy coverage. If you want to shop for additional quotes, you’ll have to go through the entire process again with another agent or two. 
 
You can think of it this way: A captive agent has a predetermined set of policies to draw from, and when you work with that agent, they’re fitting their policies to your needs, so there’s less ability to customize coverage. Working with a captive agent also tends to be more expensive because of their corporate structure. When it’s time to renew or service your account, remember that captive agents represent their company’s best interests.
 
We Insure is an independent insurance provider that’s the opposite of what captive insurance offers in several ways, but the most important differences can impact your bottom line, coverage and customer satisfaction. While captives represent one company, We Insure agents have access to multiple carriers, which means they can select the best product for their clients with more flexibility and features as well as greater value and competitive pricing. We Insure agents shop around to find policies that suit your interests — not the interests of a single insurance company.  
 
Because We Insure agents offer home, auto, business and other types of policies, you can work with one agent for all your insurance needs. We Insure agents aren’t captive to any one provider and aren’t limited to one set of policies. As independent agents, We Insure will compare policies from different carriers to find the right plan at the best rate for you. Captive agents cannot show you competing products that may offer better coverage and options for your particular situation. A We Insure agent’s approach is to help you tailor the coverage to give you more features and flexibility, not shoehorn you into their company’s product line.
 
When you work with an agent who offers a broader array of coverage options, they can better see the big picture and how it may impact your insurance needs. For example, as your assets increase due to a successful business, inheritance or promotion, you may need to raise your liability coverage on home and auto policies or add an umbrella policy. After a marriage, the newlyweds may need to combine assets or purchase riders for valuables whether it’s for one spouse’s jewelry or the other’s guitar collection.
 
If your agent knows you and all your insurance needs, they’re more likely to identify triggering events for additional recommended coverage and suggest the best policy to meet those requirements. This concierge approach to insurance can greatly simplify your life and help ensure appropriate protection across all stages of life.
 
Better value, more choice. We Insure agents can find you the best deals from top-rated carriers for: home, condo, renters, auto, motorcycle, RV, business, boat and flood insurance. Call your local We Insure agent today to discuss your options.

What was expected to be a strong year for real estate, and may still be, has been largely derailed by the coronavirus pandemic sweeping through the United States during the peak 2020 home-buying season. Early indicators from first quarter show mortgage purchase applications down 24 percent from the previous year and the volume of newly listed properties down by 34 percent. The impact of COVID-19 continues, spurring business owners to consider plans for recovery in the near term — and long-term strategies to help protect their businesses from future economic dips and recessions.   
 
Is Your Real Estate Business Recession Resistant?

The outlook is not all doom and gloom though. Those who have been in the real estate industry for any length of time remember overcoming previous crises, including the Great Recession and the 2010 foreclosure crisis. What do the most resilient companies have in common? 
 
Successful brokerages focus on growth, customer experience, agent retention and low operating costs. Many of the strongest players diversify their offerings to include mortgage and title services, creating additional revenue streams. These services, however, rely on one-time real estate transactions, so if home sales drop, mortgage and title services also naturally decline. 
 
But adding insurance to your offerings is different.
 
Whether the market is up or down, people still need both homeowners and auto insurance. And since the insurance industry is less affected by ebbs and flows of the economy, it’s generally more recession resistant. While real estate, mortgage, and title are one-off transactions, insurance revenue looks more like building an annuity or a retirement account. Business income from insurance policies arrives annually, is typically paid through escrow, and historically remains in place for many years. Sales from insurance is usually more consistent and durable, leading to more dependable projections for you. 
 
No industry can guarantee complete recession resistance, but insurance has been a go-to for risk-averse entrepreneurs, offering to smooth out the inevitable cyclicality of real estate. So, why haven’t more real estate groups offered insurance? 

A Turnkey Insurance Franchise Model 

Traditionally, insurance is sold by agents working for one insurance company or operating as an independent agent representing multiple insurance brands. Captive models are known for providing deep resources and support to agents who solely represent the brand, while independent agents are their scrappier counterparts who represent many carriers and are responsible for their own overhead. While policies sold by captive agents may be more expensive because of fees associated with the one-to-one relationship with the insurance company, those from independent agents may not be able provide the same level of service due to the greater level of back-end support offered by large insurance brands. 
 
Unfortunately, neither model is a great match as an ancillary business for the real estate agency. The captive model is too narrow an offering for the customer, whereas the independent model offers choice but can lack the operational structure and support that larger brands typically provide.
 
We Insure offers the alternative — a turnkey model with premier-level access to carriers, along with robust operational and marketing support. We Insure incorporates the best that captive and independent insurance models offer to create an innovative approach to insurance that complements today’s real estate agency business model.

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges.

The successful husband and wife team has a combined 30 years’ experience in real estate as realtors and owners of a South Florida brokerage. “Once we decided that we wanted to open our insurance agency, we looked at different options and decided that we did not need to go further once we learned about We Insure,” explains Ivon Retamar.

“We were very impressed with the systems, support, marketing, service, leadership team and culture,” adds Leonardo Retamar.


Chris Pflueger, We Insure Chief Development Officer, adds, “Ivon and Leonardo are the dynamic leadership team of a growing real estate practice in South Florida.

It's no secret that We Insure has been expanding at a rapid rate in Florida, Georgia and throughout the country as of recent and has been in business for 11 years. Even after such a short period of time in the industry, their presence is evident – with 100+ locations, and countless awards and achievements. They've made it known that this success stems from building and maintaining relationships – with their carrier partners, their insureds, and of course – their agency owners.  

Born in south Florida and raised in Palm Beach County, Cristina is an experienced insurance agent having worked in the industry for the past 20 years. She is 2-20 licensed and has gained her experience throughout the years working in the tri-county south Florida area, where rates are high and there are less carriers than homes at times. Growing on that passion for helping others, Cristina opened her own insurance franchise with We Insure and she plans on getting her 2-15 Health and Life license to offer even more products to her clients.  

For some time, Cristina was interested in opening an independent agency. Her mission is to provide not only coverage for her clients but to educate them on the best way there is of protecting their assets. Joining We Insure will provide more than 100 markets and has partnerships with the top carriers, providing a superior customer experience of expanded choice and competitive rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

Agency owner Kimberly Perez says she chose We Insure from several independent agency franchise options because, “it is, by far, superior to anything else available.” After working at captive agencies for 29 years, she has extensive insurance knowledge and experience. “I knew there had to be a better way than the limited options we were able to offer our clients through captive agencies,” she added.

One of the primary reasons that entrepreneurs select franchise business models is to help them mitigate the risk of starting a new business and for the franchise’s established brand and support. It’s common to hear that they initially considered starting their own business but grew concerned about the challenges of opening and operating their own company before turning to a franchise. Many of our current franchisees are former independent agents who, after running their own agencies, chose We Insure expressly because of the level of resources, structure and support system that our model provides. 

Proven Business Model
The We Insure business model is designed to overcome the obstacles that independent agents face with gaining market access and growing back-end support systems to meet business demands. This allows franchise owners to focus their efforts on revenue-generating activities. 

We Insure provides customers with access to top carriers and excellent value, giving franchise partners unlimited growth potential. Since the company’s inception in 2009, it’s been focused on building relationships with more than 150 carriers and perfecting its training and operational support systems. No other independent insurance franchise offers a tier-one commission structure with access to that many carriers and full back-end support on day one.

Support at Every Step
Franchise owners come to us from many industries, including real estate and mortgage firms, as well as captive and independent insurance agencies. We provide all of our franchise owners with comprehensive training at every stage of the process, starting with early consultations about developing an agency. No matter what you know about insurance, you can successfully own a We Insure franchise after completing our extensive training program.

Custom Training Programs for Each Stage of Business

Service Operations
Once you onboard your customer, We Insure’s experienced and qualified service team manages underwriting, processing and support, so you can focus on building customer relationships. The service team is made up of several departments, including a mortgage team, to maximize efficiency and turnaround times. 

SIFI Department
The SIFI (Submit it and Forget It) department processes more than 25,000 emails and underwriting memos each month. This team focuses on nitty gritty details like missing documents and maintaining data integrity. They’re experts on the requirements for the 150 carriers that We Insure partners with. 

Processing Department 
The processing department takes in all incoming requests from clients and carriers throughout the policy term and communicates with agents on critical items. This team is divided into personal line representatives and commercial line representatives. 

Personal line representatives handle incoming calls from insureds and carriers. This team also educates clients calling into the service department on other products to assist agents in growing their book of business. Commercial line representatives take care of commercial lines, insurance business correspondence and certificates of insurance for customers.

The recession stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic is unlike any other in United States history. Many have found themselves un- or under-employed and more circumspect about their economic future, leading them to look for ways to save money on essentials. 

During this challenging time, it’s wise to review your insurance as rates change and policies come up for renewal. Many companies are also offering rebates on auto insurance. But whether you’re shopping for a new policy or updating an existing one, make sure you’re trying to save smartly — and not in a way that’s likely to backfire down the line.

Shop Around 
There are many ways to save on insurance, but one of the best methods is simply to shop rates. Compare quotes with at least three different companies. The best and most efficient way to shop your policy is to work with an independent agent who knows your market and your individual needs. The agent can then translate that to an apples-to-apples comparison of policy types and coverage from various carriers. 

Make your decision based on price, value, the reputation of the insurance provider, and your comfort with the agent. Think about the big picture because you’ll be working with this person to help you complete future claims should they arise. The lowest price is not the best option if you’re sacrificing coverage, service or reputability. 

Bundling your insurance or sticking with one provider across multiple policies can be a strategic way to capture savings of 5 percent to 20 percent. But sometimes using separate providers might be more cost-effective. Again, the best way to find out is to comparison shop and not assume you’re getting the best deal with your current insurer. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to have an independent, knowledgeable We Insure agent that has access to top-rated carriers and some of the most competitive pricing in the industry do the legwork for you.

Evaluate Policies at Least Once a Year
Insurance premiums may increase after the policy period ends, so it’s always smart to evaluate your coverage and shop your policy to ensure you get the best rate. Most policies like homeowners and life insurance generally have one-year terms, but auto insurance usually renews every six months. In addition, many auto insurers are currently giving rebates to their customers because of the hardships from COVID-19. Be sure to check with your insurer to verify if you’re receiving a rebate, or ask for one if you aren’t.

These major life changes should trigger a re-evaluation of your insurance needs:

Additionally, if you can answer yes to any of the following five questions, you may be able to reduce the cost of your insurance premium:

1. Did your credit score improve? 
Depending on the state you live in, insurance companies may use credit-based insurance scores to predict how likely you are to have an insurance loss. They’re like regular credit scores but only use select elements of your credit history. This score is only one factor that influences your premium.

2. Did moving violations fall off your driving record? 
Good for you! Most states allow moving violations to remain on your record for up to 10 years. Safe driving over time can remove these splotches and lead to a better rate.

3. Do you qualify for a low mileage discount? 
Low mileage discounts vary by insurer, but some insurers advertise a price break of up to 20% if you drive less than 8,000 miles per year.

4. Can you reduce optional insurance on an older vehicle? 
Collision may no longer make sense on an older vehicle that you’ve paid off. A common rule of thumb is to drop collision when the cost of comprehensive and collision together is greater than 10% of your vehicle's value. But speak with your We Insure agent to see if this makes sense in your specific situation.

5. Have you made improvements to protect your home?
Adding smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, burglar alarms or deadbolts to your doors can keep you safer and decrease your insurance premium.

Proceed with Caution with These Savings Strategies
Raise your deductible to lower your premium — but only if you can afford to pay it. On things like a wind policy, for instance, a higher deductible could mean many thousands of extra dollars out of pocket after a big storm. And many folks probably have less in their emergency fund or a lower salary than before. Also, be wary of signing on with a poorly rated carrier just to save a few dollars. You may find that the savings aren’t worth the cost of poor service in the long run.

If you’re ready to save money on your home, auto, business or life insurance policies, contact your local We Insure agent. Our agents have access to top insurance carriers and specialty insurance providers and can help you get the coverage you need at competitive rates.

If you live in a hurricane-prone state, you should know that homeowners insurance doesn’t always pay for all the damage these monster storms can wreak. Depending on what state you reside in and geographic factors, like coastline proximity or location within a flood zone, you may need additional coverage to protect your property from the wind and flooding that can harm your home.
 
There are two types of insurance products you might need in addition to your homeowners policy to protect you: windstorm and flood insurance. With hurricane season entering its peak, it’s important to know that any new coverage you add to your policy can take approximately 30 days to go into effect. 
 
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Atlantic 2020 season is expected to be above-normal with 13 to 19 named storms predicted. Two-thirds of homes in the US are under-insured for national disasters, but many don’t know it. For example, 80% of residents in the worst-hit areas of Hurricane Harvey in 2017 did not have flood insurance. 
 
Let’s repeat: Having homeowners insurance does NOT mean it will cover the wind and flood damage that follows a hurricane. You may need separate policies to cover repairs or pay the cost of rebuilding your home.
 

Windstorm Insurance  

In most states, standard policies cover damage from wind and hail, including hurricanes. However, some high-risk coastal states exclude windstorm coverage from homeowners insurance policies. If you live in a southern coastal community, insurers often require windstorm insurance that’s available as a rider on your current policy or as a separate policy. If the insurer doesn’t mandate the windstorm coverage, your mortgage lender may require some amount of protection. Even if your policy covers wind damage, it may only be partial coverage with a separate, significantly higher hurricane deductible than your standard deductible.
 
While some insurance companies no longer offer wind policies in beach areas, We Insure works with many insurers to provide this type of coverage. Additionally, a number of coastal states have beach and windstorm plans to offer coverage that’s pooled by private companies but administered by the government.
 
Windstorm insurance may cover damage from high winds not associated with a hurricane. And it could also cover rain damage if a wind or hail storm perforates the roof or walls of your home. Just be sure to contact your insurance agent to report any damage promptly, as there are often time limitations for filing a claim.
 

Flood Insurance

Floods are the most common and costly natural disaster in the U.S. If only one inch of water seeps into your home, it can cause $25,000 or more in damage. You may know that federal disaster aid provides limited assistance, but the aid is often in the form of a loan that you need to pay back. Homeowners insurance policies don’t cover floods, including water from a storm surge. Flood insurance is only available through an insurer or insurance agent participating in the National Flood Insurance Program, and We Insure partners with insurers that offer these policies.
 
If you own a home on property that’s in a flood zone or at high risk, your mortgage lender may require you to purchase flood insurance. That said, roughly 20% of claims come from properties not within a high-risk flood zone. If you live in a low elevation area with high exposure to storms, such as the state of Florida, flood insurance is a smart consideration even if it’s not required. 
 
Flood insurance can cover the structure of your home and its foundation, plumbing and electrical systems, central air and heating systems, attached bookcases, cabinets, paneling, and a detached garage. It can also provide protection for personal belongings such as clothing, furniture, electronics, curtains, some portable appliances, freezers and the foods within them. Be sure to discuss the specific coverage of your policy with your agent.
 

The Power of We

If you have any questions or concerns about your current hurricane coverage — or want to shop or purchase a new policy — it's best to speak to an insurance expert who is knowledgeable about insurance needs in your geographic area. Determining the right level of coverage on your own can be daunting, and We Insure wants you to rest easy during this hurricane season. Talk to a We Insure agent before the storm clouds appear on the horizon.

With the addition of insurance services, RE/MAX Advantage Plus now has a complete array of home buying services, including real estate, mortgage, title and home insurance. RE/MAX Advantage Plus is championing an aggressive growth plan for South Florida and is further strengthening its position as a dominant player by adding insurance to its roster of services. We Insure is an innovative, independent insurance solution that gives agents access to the most markets and full back-end support through a national insurance franchise opportunity.

RE/MAX Advantage Plus has offices in Virginia Beach and South Florida and is on a fast track of growth through acquisition. RE/MAX Advantage Plus owner Chad Ingram started as an independent agency broker in 2009 and joined RE/MAX in 2014. “I realized that it’s tough to operate as an independent in real estate. What brought us to RE/MAX and the decision to include mortgage and title in our offering is similar to what drew us to We Insure,” explains Ingram. “We’re focused on growth and longevity. The brokerage of the future will not be competitive unless we offer our agents and customers a complete one stop shop of services.  And insurance is a key component of that going forward.  Insurance will help strengthen our growth so we can ride future economic waves with more certainty.”

“The recent economic downturn has been difficult for business,” says Chris Pflueger, Chief Development Officer of We Insure. “By adding competitive insurance services, they can often bring real value to their customers and help define their portfolio consistently and for long term.”

Ingram adds, “We’re excited to announce that we’ve brought on a veteran insurance professional to help us grow the insurance side of our business. This was the same strategy we used for title and mortgage at RE/MAX Advantage Plus with exceptional results.”

The grand opening for new We Insure Platinum office is scheduled for August 5th.

About We Insure Inc. We believe in the Power of WE. Our relationships with top-rated carriers give our customers the power to choose and the confidence of knowing they’re properly insured at premiums they can afford.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL August, 13, 2020.  We Insure Inc., an independent insurance company commanding national attention for its customer-centric and franchisee-friendly business model, enters the 2020 hurricane season with a proven track record of crisis-related support. The insurance franchise’s revolutionary model, which helped it achieve a recent 100th-agency milestone, enables We Insure to provide unparalleled service to its network of local owners

When tested by the fourth most powerful hurricane ever to hit land in the United States, We Insure showcased its “Power of WE” with collaboration and customer service, enabled by high-tech operating systems. Clients of the We Insure Panama City office experienced no downtime because of the agency’s seamless connectivity to the corporate office.

Once Hurricane Michael was on track to make landfall in October 2018 in the Florida Panhandle, We Insure Panama City owner Vincent Flavia evacuated, leaving behind his home and office. Just days before, We Insure corporate had engaged its hurricane crisis plan.

We Insure’s business continuity plan for franchise partners protects franchise owners in the event that they themselves are affected by a catastrophic event. Calls from policyholders to We Insure Panama City were routed to the corporate customer service center to expedite and facilitate support before, during, and after the hurricane. Customer service representatives were able to access all customer files and other necessary policy documentation because of the We Insure shared customer relationship management system.

“Having this level of support was tremendous,” explains We Insure Panama City owner Vincent Flavia. “Corporate picked up the slack while I was forced to work from my mother’s dining room table for two weeks.”

We Insure offers superior corporate-level customer service and support that an independent agency typically doesn’t provide. While the communities affected by the hurricane are still rebuilding, We Insure is proud to say that there are still insurance resources available for homeowners — and no existing homeowners were turned away. “As our community continues to recover from Hurricane Michael and new homes and businesses are constructed, our agency will continue to provide a vital service to the area,” says Flavia.

In addition to support provided by the corporate office, We Insure agencies throughout the hurricane-affected areas supported one another. “We heard many stories of agency owners reaching out to one another with offers to share office space and people resources,” says We Insure Co-CEO, Deb Franklin. “The collaborative culture of We Insure is strong, and it’s a testament to our employees and partners. Our agents know that whatever this year’s hurricane season brings, we’ll be there to help them weather the storm.”

About We Insure We Insure is a national insurance company that’s disrupting the industry with an innovative business model focused on customer experience and exceptional agent support. The franchise offers unprecedented access to carriers and complete operational, IT, service and marketing support to its franchisees in the U.S. We Insure is expanding rapidly with more than 100 retail locations and over $185 million in annual sales.

Continues Rapid National Expansion, Adds New Office in Brandon, Mississippi, Owned and Operated by Amy Garland [news_date] => 2020-08-21 10:00:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1598018620_amyheadshot.jpg [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL August 21, 2020 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance company commanding national attention for its customer-centric and franchisee-friendly business model, added a new agency in Brandon, Mississippi.

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models.

Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 150 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of just 80 businesses to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisee satisfaction and performance rankings.  

Agency owner Amy Garland has been operating a high-producing real estate agency in central Mississippi for many years.

“Insurance always seemed like a good fit to expand our real estate business,” says Garland. “However, before we learned about We Insure, we hadn’t seen a turnkey approach that offers premier level access to carriers, and operational and marketing support. We’re excited to now offer our valued real estate clients a wide range of insurance products including homeowners insurance.”

“We Insure is an attractive model for real estate agencies because of its ability to add valuable growth with little additional overhead,” adds Chris Pflueger, We Insure Chief Development Officer. “For years, innovative real estate agencies have grown by adding title and mortgage to their offerings, and now they have a viable way to add insurance through a We Insure franchise business.”

Are you thinking about purchasing a recreational vehicle to take your vacation on the road this fall for some socially distant fun? If you are, you’re not alone! 

The RV Industry Association reports a 170% increase in sales for May 2020 compared to 12 months prior. As our national parks have reopened, many families want to salvage lost summer holidays in a safer way — and transport kids back to college without putting them on a plane. Snowbirds, who are at an increased risk for falling sick to the coronavirus, are also looking for new ways to head south this winter. And the appeal of RVs is broadening as many young families and retirees alike consider the RV lifestyle for the very first time.

But before you drive off in your home away from home, make sure you’re properly covered. Your auto policy may offer some RV-specific insurance protection for driving-related accidents, its contents and other issues — but may not give you all the coverage you need. Homeowners policies can provide offer some protection, but it’s generally limited to when the RV is parked at your residence. RV insurance typically combines the types of coverage common to home and auto insurance policies at a level that’s commensurate to the value of the RV.  

Insurers differentiate RVs from passenger cars and SUVs because RVs are typically much larger, longer and more expensive than a standard vehicle — sometimes costing as much as a (stationary) house. The size of the vehicle can feel awkward to drive at first, and insurers anticipate a greater risk for accidents. You may find it more difficult to drive and park, especially in tight spaces like gas stations and off-road campsites. Read: Fender benders are more likely as a new RV road warrior!  

Even minor accidents like scraping a pole or denting another RV can lead to expensive repairs. Purchasing RV insurance can get you the higher limits you need to cover damages, which can be substantially more than the average auto policy provides. 

Beyond the typical dings and scrapes you might anticipate, being on the road for longer periods of time can make you more susceptible to Mother Nature, theft and a variety of other perils. Supplemental policies can cover costs your auto or homeowner insurance policy may not, like hotel or rental car reimbursement in the event of a breakdown.

One last note for those who are new to RV travel: If you’re journeying outside of the U.S. to Canada or Mexico, you may also need specific protections for taking your RV across the border. So be sure to talk to your agent about your upcoming travel plans. 

We Insure offers exceptional customer service and competitive rates on auto, motorcycle, RV and boat insurance. So, before you hit the road (or the waves) talk to one of our knowledgeable agents so you can enjoy your next adventure with the protection you need.

Expands Into Arkansas [news_date] => 2020-09-08 10:00:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1599571139_Image.jpg [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL September 8, 2020 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance company experiencing high demand from real estate entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering, opened its first agency in Arkansas.

We Insure is on track to meet its aggressive agency expansion goals for 2020, even after the unanticipated economic downturn caused by the global pandemic. Its continued growth is a testament to the company’s strong brand, business model and position in the critical infrastructure sector.

We Insure Alliance in Conway, Arkansas, is owned by Keith Pike, an accomplished businessman with a successful legal practice, four real estate companies, a mortgage company and a marketing and media services company. Pike operates the largest RE/MAX realty brokerage in Arkansas, with nearly 200 agents. RE/MAX Elite has offices in Little Rock, Conway, Bryant and North Little Rock.

We Insure Alliance has had great success adding ancillary businesses that provide solutions to meet the needs of its agents and customers. “The real estate transaction process is very scattered and can be overwhelming for a new homeowner — our strategy of having an all-in-one-solution has been embraced by our customers and agents,” says Agency Owner of We Insure Alliance Keith Pike.

“Having insurance, mortgage and marketing services certainly makes the real estate transaction process easy,” adds Pike. “Our agents are happy and earning more — and it helps the company from a recruiting perspective.”

 
“We’re excited to work with the RE/MAX Elite team,” says Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. Keith and his team are known nationally for the introduction of novel business practices in the real estate industry.”

We Insure’s national growth has met the company’s planned goals even through the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 150 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of just 80 businesses to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisee satisfaction and performance rankings.

The We Insure Premier Group opened on September 1st to serve Tampa Bay area customers.

Longtime referral partners Florin Patrascoiu and Wes King own The We Insure Premier Group. Patrascoiu is a 22-year real estate veteran and a RE/MAX agency owner with offices in Tampa and Wesley Chapel. King is a licensed insurance agent of 18 years, with the majority of his tenure as an independent agent.  Patrascoiu and King have been referring each other for the past 10 years and will continue as joint owners of The We Insure Premier Group.
 

“Our approach has been to build one client at a time through a consultative relationship,” Patrascoiu says. “In the area of real estate, this means giving advice and options to clients that aren’t tied to our compensation.  We always do what is right with utmost integrity and professionalism.  After 1 billion dollars in sales we still believe in this approach because it is one of our core values. With We Insure, we will continue to do the same thing and establish a national platform on which to grow.” 
 

“What stood out to us was We Insure’s solid back-end service, commission structure, and ability to offer our customers access to over 150 carriers which means we will provide our customers with the best possible quotes in terms of price and coverage with the confidence of offering the best insurance carriers with the highest rating and stability,” says King. “Florin and I are not new to this industry and know the challenges that accompany running an independent insurance agency. So does We Insure, as they’ve built their business model to compensate for agency owners’ blind spots.”  

“We Insure was created to overcome common failures within the industry,” explains We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “Our CEO Philip Visali was a former captive agent, who had seen the limitations of the captive insurance model. So, when he launched an independent agency of his own, he recognized that model’s challenges. We’re excited to offer a new way to provide market access and full back-end support.”

Announce Partnership to Open First We Insure Franchise in Kansas [news_date] => 2020-09-17 10:30:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1600352640_RossPic.JPG [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL (September 17, 2020) — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of its first agency in Kansas. Located in the state’s largest city, We Insure Ross Viner and Associates serves customers in the greater Wichita area.

We Insure’s newest agency is owned and operated by Ross Viner, an insurance agency owner of 33 years. A lifelong resident of Wichita and a captive agency owner in the same area, Viner chose to revitalize his business by partnering with We Insure to invest in a franchise operation.  

“The one-carrier model no longer works in today’s economy,” says Viner. “Insurance is not a one-size-fits-all approach and in order to best serve my customers, I wanted to be in a position to provide them with the value that I believe only an independent service model can offer.”  

Viner adds: “When insurance rates increase, you need to be able to shop other carriers to maintain the trust you’ve built with clients. Your loyalty to your customer and not the insurance company is what helps maintain the customer relationship.”
 

“We’re excited that Ross is the owner of our founding franchise in Kansas,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “Ross and many other agency owners come to We Insure for our superior technology and customer service support. In his former agency, Ross had a small team of customer service representatives managing his portfolio. Now, he can count on the We Insure home office for that manpower and focus even more attention on sales.”

Among Second-Stage Businesses - Competing to Earn Prestigious Honor   

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL  September 19, 2020.  We Insure, Inc. was among the first round of the 2020 Florida Companies to Watch finalists recently announced by GrowFL.  The awards event - now in its tenth year - honors impressive second-stage companies from throughout the state for developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities, and broadening new industries throughout Florida. The 2020 GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch awards celebration is brought to you by Nperspective CFO & Strategic Services, in association with the Edward Lowe Foundation. 
 

Together, the 2020 GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch Finalists represent nearly 3,000 jobs and generate $670 million in revenue. These companies, all of which are “worth watching,” anticipate a growth of 13 percent in revenue and 23 percent in employment by the end of 2020.     
“We are honored to be recognized as a finalist for the 2020 GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch,”  said We Insure, Inc. Founder and CEO, Philip Visali.  “We Insure has a business model that fosters a culture of support and growth, empowering our agency owners and our corporate team.”  Visali attributes the exceptional growth to maintaining a sharp focus on doing what’s right for the customer, the agency owners, and the partners.  “We Insure’s mission aligns with our partners and our franchise owners, which is to grow and support our goals.” 
 

The finalists were selected from more than 400 nominations and are now in the running to be named a 2020 GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch Honoree.  If selected as an honoree, these exemplary second-stage companies will join the 450 honorees that have been recognized since 2011.   

“We applaud these first-round finalists who have proved themselves to be stand out companies in the state. They have and continue to demonstrate the resiliency and tenacity that comes along with being an entrepreneur. We know this year hasn’t been easy, so we’re excited to recognize our states admirable business owners and their teams. I have a feeling they’re just getting started,” says Dr. Tom O’Neal, GrowFL Founder.  

The Finalists represent a unique group of scalable, high-growth enterprises that are already located within Florida. These high growth enterprises are an important segment of our economy and their numbers have been steadily increasing. According to the Kauffman Foundation, “entrepreneurship is not a monolithic phenomenon, and it includes many moving parts. Creating new businesses is a different economic activity from running small businesses, which in turn is different from growing businesses.” GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch recognizes the different approach needed to successfully grow and scale a business and celebrates those that are working to achieve this goal. 

Companies to Watch was developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation as a unique way to recognize and honor second-stage companies that demonstrate high performance in the marketplace with innovative strategies and processes. In addition to evaluating past growth and projected success, applicant companies are judged according to their special strengths and impact in their markets, communities and within the state – thus deeming them “worth watching.”   

The 2020 honorees will be recognized on November 12, 2020 at 6pm during a live broadcast from Orlando, Florida. For more information visit https://www.growfl.com/flctw20/about-flctw/.

Like a glass of ruby red cabernet with a fine cut of prime steak, a real estate brokerage with in-house insurance is a perfect business pairing that brings out the best that each has to offer. Whereas many real estate agency owners have referral relationships with one or more trusted insurance partners, this new business model enables them to diversify their offerings and bring insurance products in house. 

You’ve worked hard to grow your office, so why not continue to offer your clients great service in a complementary industry? We Insure has relationships with top insurance carriers and a revolutionary support system that enables real estate brokerages to add insurance services to their mix with little additional overhead.

State of the Real Estate Industry

The real estate industry trend of consolidation continues to accelerate in 2020.  Larger real estate brokerages are buying the smaller ones to reach critical mass in the agent count. This growth-through-acquisition strategy can result in agencies becoming too heavy, too fast — and with too much waste. In order to improve the bottom line, you need to implement one of these proven strategies:  reduce expenses or increase revenue.

Insurance as a Competitive Advantage

If the only way to survive as a real estate broker is to get as large as you can, the businesses that find success with one of the strategies mentioned. One way to increase incoming revenue is by adding an ancillary service like mortgage or title. Previously, insurance was not at the top of the list with brokerages because there wasn’t a turnkey approach that offered premier-level access to carriers and back-of-house support before. Today, adding insurance products remains a novel approach, but it’s gaining traction with innovative brokers. 

Keith Pike, owner of We Insure Alliance and the largest RE/MAX agency in Arkansas, describes why he’s bringing together all of the home-buying-related services in his office, “It’s very scattered and overwhelming for the new homeowner. By offering complimentary real estate services like insurance under one roof, we’re building the agent’s ability to provide consultative services and creating a sense of legitimacy for our business with clients.”

Protecting Your Business Against Economic Downturns

Real estate industry cycles can mean that your revenue changes almost overnight. One way to protect your business is to add new revenue streams. With insurance, you have recurring income in addition to one-time real estate transactions. The revenue from an insurance policy can deliver for eight or nine years as business builds exponentially.

Delivering a Seamless Customer Experience 

If you want to stand out from the competition, you need to compete on customer experience. Real estate brokerages that focus on continual improvement of their customer experience can build long-term dividends with their client base. 

Dustin Oldfather, agency owner of We Insure Prosperity and owner of The Oldfather Group, services a high-end coastal market from Rehoboth, Delaware. He says, “A few years ago, our clients were frustrated with the mortgage process, so we solved that problem by bringing in mortgage services. We always want to improve the quality of the home-buying experience, and by adding insurance, it allows us to offer more convenience and control the service quality for our clients.”

Some agency owners are so focused on putting the client first, they prefer to turn away business if it means that the client gets the best product. Owner of RE/MAX Houston agency and We Insure You, Freddy Rodriguez has two realty offices in Houston and a third in Corpus Christie. He embraces the independent insurance model because it encourages companies to offer their best coverage options at the lowest rates. 

He explains, “I always put the client’s interest first, even above my own. I know I can feel great about aligning myself with We Insure because they share my growth mindset and do business for all the right reasons.”  

Agent Recruitment and Retention

Do you want the strongest office in your geographic area with a one-stop-shop for customers and agents? Ancillary services including insurance simplify the home-buying process, which can often be crunch time. When these services are offered under one roof, the agents and clients feel that they are always the top priority. That’s a big value to agents and a great way to keep them at your agency.

We Insure is a turnkey approach that offers premier-level access to carriers plus operational and marketing support. It takes the best that captive and independent insurance models offer to create an innovative approach to insurance. We Insure provides its franchise partners with access to top carriers and top-tier commission on day one. We Insure agency owners focus their time and attention on customers, while corporate provides all of the back support, call center, technologies and tools needed for success.

We all enjoy a good scare this time of year, but it shouldn’t be because you made a mistake with your insurance policy. Here are some of the ghastliest gaffes when it comes to your insurance coverage and how to avoid them.

1. Being Underinsured on Your Home 
It’s a tough time for many Americans, and while we should always look for ways to trim the fat, cutting insurance coverage to the point where you have inadequate coverage is definitely not the best option. In the event of a disaster, being underinsured could mean losing tens of thousands of dollars or more if you have to repair or replace your home. One way to objectively determine if you have enough coverage is to use a web tool like AccuCoverage to account for custom features of your home and the cost of construction in your area. Review your current policy against the report to determine if you may need to change your coverage. One important detail in a homeowner’s policy that could cost you a bundle is whether your personal belongings are covered for their current (depreciated) value or at replacement cost. 

2. Dropping Needed Coverage to Save 
Some insurance companies make it easy — perhaps too easy — to opt-in and out of coverage through their websites. It may seem quick and painless to do, but if you don’t 100% understand the policy language, you could drop necessary coverage. Always check with your We Insure agent to ensure your cost-saving measures don’t accidentally remove coverage you need. For instance, if you live in a hurricane-prone state, you may need hurricane coverage, but windstorm damages caused by the winds created by a hurricane storm are not generally included. Hurricanes and windstorms go hand in hand, so excluding windstorm coverage could become a very costly mistake!

3. Shopping Solely Based on Price 
If you’re shopping policies on price alone, you’re leaving key decision factors on the table: appropriate coverage, customer service and the reputation of the insurance company. A low price can mean many things, including limited coverage or a high premium. Determine what types of coverage you need first, and then have a We Insure agent shop carriers to give you an apples-to-apples comparison. Be sure to ask if any discounts are available. Auto insurers may offer a break for good driving behavior, and home insurers often give discounts for upgrades like a new roof or monitored alarm system. From there, you can make a final determination by reviewing the service quality and other reputation factors of the company. 

4. Not Having Flood Insurance When You’re at Risk 
Even if you don’t live in a high-risk area, most property owners should consider flood insurance. According to FEMA, during a 30-year mortgage, there’s a 25 percent chance you could experience flood conditions if your home is in a 100-year floodplain. Just one inch of flooding in your home can cost $20,000 or more in repairs! Flood zones change over time, so even if you weren’t in a flood zone when you first purchased your home, your risk may have since changed. An example of floods occurring in non-flood zone areas include the 50+-inches of rain from Hurricane Harvey in 2017, resulting in catastrophic property flooding in Texas and Louisiana.

5. Buying Bare-Bones Auto Coverage 
The adage “you get what you pay for” can especially be true when it comes to cheap auto insurance. You’d be spooked if you knew the frightening risk you’re taking if you hurt someone in an accident and face a lawsuit without adequate coverage. Even minor accidents can lead to very costly damages. And inadequate coverage may put your home and personal savings at risk. Think about that threat before picking a plan with only the state-minimum mandated coverage.

6. Forgetting to Pay Your Premium 
Whoopsies. We’ve all forgotten to pay a bill from time to time, but this is one mistake that’s completely avoidable. Set up automatic bill payment online or through your agent to take care of your insurance premium, or at least set up a recurring reminder in your calendar. Late payments can affect your credit report, and those who consistently pay late can end up paying higher insurance premiums and late fees as a result.

The Takeaway: Don’t cut and slash your insurance policies for short-term savings, especially during challenging economic times. It’s important to protect yourself from the types of disasters and worst-case scenarios that can wipe out a lifetime of savings. Take calculated but informed steps and work with a We Insure agent to guide you along the way — and save the scares for the Halloween horror movies.

Continues Rapid National Expansion, Opens New Office in Pace, Florida [news_date] => 2020-10-26 14:45:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1603737012_DarrenS.jpg [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL, October 26, 2020 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance company commanding national attention for its customer-centric and franchisee-friendly business model, opens a new agency in Pace, Florida, located in the Panhandle region.

We Insure Spicer Agency owner Darren Spicer has nearly 30 years of experience in the insurance industry — 21 of them as owner of a captive agency.

“I’ve spent my entire property and casualty career referring good potential clients down the road to independent agents because the company either didn’t have a market for the risk or was simply priced too high for the customer,” explains Spicer about why he’s excited to join We Insure. “Now, I can write policies that I was never able to before.”

“The We Insure model is a home run with partners who’ve had their own agencies because they understand the power of the network and back-end support that We Insure provides,” adds We Insure Chief Development Officer, Chris Pflueger. “We’re particularly partial to Darren’s story because he was referred by another We Insure franchise partner who also came from the captive side of the business. It’s a testament to the strength of our business model.”

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 100 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of the Top 100 Low Cost Franchises in 2020 and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisees’ satisfaction and performance rankings.

Nearly everyone is on social media today, but that doesn’t make all users instant experts or guarantee that their outreach is effective. Take these tips to heart, and you can use this cost-effective marketing channel to find and connect with customers. 

1. Pick your channels wisely. Your social channels should make sense for your business and audience. If you’re not sure where your business fits in, first determine where your audience goes online to find information about the types of policies you sell. Still not sure? Check out your competitors to see where they interact with their customers and evaluate the demographics of your website visitors against current research on social media audiences. 

If you specialize in business policies and commercial insurance, then LinkedIn is an obvious choice. For homeowners insurance, consider Facebook or Nextdoor. Whatever you do, don’t rely on your teenage son or daughter for social media advice, even if they do spend all of their time there. The latest trends in social media may not be right for your business. If you can’t see how you’d create content for the platform, it’s probably not a good fit.

2. Don’t try to do too much too fast. Be consistent and take on one channel at a time until you know you can keep up. Just like it takes a while to build relationships in real life, it requires time and commitment to develop connections online. You may want to grow your influence on LinkedIn, keep in touch with customers on Facebook and harness the power of Nextdoor for local leads, but choose just one to start. 
Create a few short-term goals and focus on the strategy that will get you there. Don’t be surprised if you spend four to five hours per week growing your audience and creating the content you’ll need to engage them. 

You might get advice from digital marketers to have a presence on all of the social media sites for the search engine optimization (SEO) value the backlinks bring. While it’s true that this is helpful, it’s far better to be a high-quality reliable contributor on one platform, than to make spotty appearances on many. However, it’s a wise move to set up accounts on all the social media platforms you may someday want to use (even if they remain initially inactive) to prevent others from reserving the name or handle you want for your agency. 

3. Create and schedule posts ahead of time. Remember the four-to-five hour commitment to social media we mentioned before? One way to get a jump on content creation is to write your posts in advance and use a social media scheduling tool like HootSuite to automate posting. You already know what’s timely in different seasons of the year, such as reminders about flood insurance during hurricane season and peak renewal times. Add in holidays, and you can have much of your content pre-written and ready to go.

4. Don’t just sell, sell, sell — give advice, add value. With social media, you’re striving for a dialogue with your audience. Are they liking your posts or, even better, commenting on them? Here’s where starting slow and focusing on one channel at a time allows you to dig in and find out what truly matters to your community. You may need to tweak the type of content or the timing to ensure it’s getting in front of your intended audience. 

Remember that it’s not all about you. Think like your customers. Anticipate their needs and create content that answers their frequently asked questions. If you do your homework, set appropriate goals and use realistic resources to reach them, social media can be a powerful tool in your brand-building and lead-generation arsenal.

November is one of the busiest times of the year for car travel as families head to grandmother’s house for turkey and trimmings. Since the holidays are wild enough with your Great-Uncle Sal, take heed of our travel preparation tips so you can deftly handle roadside breakdowns — or prevent them altogether! 

1. Don’t skip essential maintenance. This is still important, even if your car has been idle these past months. Take your vehicle in for a standard checkup at your local service center to do things such as:

• Top off fluids, including windshield wiper fluid for optimal visibility. 
• Check your headlights, brake lights and turn signals.
• Inspect your tire treads for wear and inflate tires to the recommended levels in your owner’s manual for a safer, more comfortable ride.
• Check your car battery — the exceptionally hot summer months this year may have drained it faster.
• Change your oil, if it’s due.

2. Travel with emergency supplies. You may be feeling confident that you already have jumper cables, a spare tire, jack and first aid kit in your car, but when did you last open the trunk and inspect these items? Many a weary traveler pulls out a flat spare tire or opens up the first aid kit to find essential items missing or damaged. 

Other emergency items that you’ll want to have on hand include extra water and food, a flashlight, motor oil, radiator fluid, emergency lights or flares, phone chargers/power packs and a fire extinguisher. Have an extra supply of any medicines you need to take, hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray/wipes as well as extra masks for all passengers. Depending on where you’re headed, you may also need snow supplies like an ice scraper, snow shovel and blankets.

3. Make sure you have good auto insurance coverage and roadside assistance. Before you hit the road, have your up-to-date insurance documents and registration handy — and lock in your emergency roadside assistance insurance coverage. Emergency roadside assistance generally covers towing, battery jumps, tire servicing, gas delivery and lockouts. But what if you have more serious car trouble and need to have your car towed to the nearest service center? You could be stuck somewhere between Yeehaw Junction and Miami for an overnight stay or longer while waiting on repairs. 

Fortunately, there are other insurance options that cover alternative transportation, accommodations and even a food allowance for you and your co-travelers. Road trip accident accommodations coverage is actually quite affordable, so get a quote from your local We Insure agent before your holiday travel this year. 

It Could Happen to You — Be Prepared!

Don’t kid yourself when you see a disabled vehicle on the side of the road and think that it won’t happen to you — one day, it could. By following these tips, you can overcome many problems quickly and arrive fresh and in time for all the family fun.  

If you’re ready to save money on your auto, home, boat or business policies, contact your local We Insure office. Our agents have access to top carriers and specialty insurance providers to help you get the most coverage at the best rates.

Announce Partnership to Bring We Insure Insurance Services to Delaware [news_date] => 2020-10-29 17:10:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1604009121_DustinOldfather.jpg [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL (October 29, 2020) — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of its first agency in Delaware. Located in Rehoboth, We Insure Prosperity serves customers in Coastal Maryland and Delaware.

We Insure’s newest agency is owned by the dynamic husband and wife real estate team Dustin and Mariya Oldfather of The Oldfather Group. In operation since 2005, The Oldfather Group is one of the top five real estate teams in Coastal Maryland and Delaware, consistently exceeding $100 million in sales annually since 2016. The Oldfather Group is part of Sotheby’s International Realty.  

The Oldfather Group’s strength with the buyer’s market is due in part to its early adoption of online advertising in the late 2000’s. The team went on to refine its successful lead generation strategy with social media marketing, five-star customer feedback and the later addition of a marketing company.  

“We’ve always been focused on improving the quality of the experience with our customers,” says Dustin Oldfather, CEO of The Oldfather Group. This has informed our decision to add ancillary businesses such as our marketing and mortgage companies. We chose to incorporate insurance into our offerings as a stand-out convenience for the many buyers we work with in the coastal areas of Maryland and Delaware, where protecting home investments with insurance is top of mind.”
 

Oldfather adds: “Our future vision is to maintain our high-service model and continue to dominate in our current markets while expanding into new markets, including Pennsylvania. To scale, we knew we needed to bullet-proof our business with mortgage and insurance services. We Insure’s independent insurance offering is the perfect complement to our business.”  
“The Oldfather Group is a great example of where the real estate industry is headed with real estate teams,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “It’s unique for a real estate team to lead the development of the service experience as they have, and we’re excited to partner with them.”  

We Insure is experiencing high demand from real estate entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models.

The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of just 80 businesses to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020.

We Insure has expanded into thirteen new states this year as part of its 2020 national expansion plan.

We Insure is an innovative, independent insurance solution that gives agents access to the top insurance carriers and full back-end support through a national insurance franchise opportunity. A key strategy in its successful expansion is We Insure’s world-class technology that extends to its carriers who’ve built systems to seamlessly handle advanced quoting in multiple states. The company, which has been recognized by the franchise community for its superior franchise partner satisfaction ratings, hit a major growth milestone with its 100th office opening earlier this year.

Randy Bell, owner of We Insure Agency named Start Insurance, has been in real estate for 15 years and owned a successful marketing firm. He owns Start Real Estate, one of the top 40 Colorado real estate agencies out of thousands operating in the state. In the past year and a half, the firm has grown its agent base by 400 percent.

Colorado’s real estate market is one of the hottest in the United States and had a record-breaking summer for home sales, notwithstanding the effects of COVID-19. The median sale price of a single-family home in Colorado is $443,925, making affordability an issue for first-time homebuyers. Bell’s successful strategy is helping first-time buyers get their monthly payment as low as possible.

“We work with many first-time homebuyers, and their biggest obstacle is almost always the monthly payment,” says Bell. “Home values continue to climb in Colorado, so we have to be creative and find ways to pass savings along to our clients. Start Real Estate provides discounts to first-time homebuyers, and now we’re using We Insure to find them the lowest insurance rate.”

“We Insure has built strong relationships with all of the top insurance carriers, which gives our franchise partners immediate access to excellent rates — an incredible advantage when you’re a new agency,” explains Chief Development Officer, Chris Pflueger.

Continues Rapid National Expansion, Adds New Office in Panama City, Florida [news_date] => 2020-11-17 09:00:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1605620614_iandries3v2.jpg [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL November 17, 2020 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance company commanding national attention for its customer-centric and franchisee-friendly business model, announces the addition of a new agency in Panama City, Florida.

We Insure Emerald Coast is owned and operated by Ian Dries, a Panama City resident since 2003. Dries has a background in banking management and insurance and holds licenses in property and casualty insurance, as well as life, health and variable annuity insurance.

“We Insure offers the best model I’ve seen for agents and customers,” says Dries. “Having the power of such a huge array of carriers means I can write almost anything for anyone. And that’s a tremendous advantage in the marketplace.”

Dries adds, “Other agents have told me that the company feels like family, and after getting a feel for the culture, I wanted to be a part of it.”

“We’ve worked to maintain our culture as we grow,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer, Chris Pflueger. “It’s important that our franchise partners feel like they’re part of our extended team. It’s not an ‘us and them’ scenario.” 
 

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 100 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of just 80 businesses to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisee satisfaction and performance rankings.

It’s sad but true — the holiday season is prime time for theft. Protect yourself against would-be ne’er-do-wells with these holiday safety tips from We Insure.

1. Don’t broadcast travel plans. As tempting as it may be to post pictures of your family ice skating at Rockefeller Center, resist the urge. You may think you’re just sharing with friends on social media, but the internet’s call letters are www (world wide web) for a reason. Post as many pictures of your holiday adventures as you like — once you return. 

2. Don’t leave tell-tale boxes for expensive items curbside. Television boxes that get tossed to the curb let everyone know the make, model and size of your brand-new 4K TV. It’s a burglar’s dream because it signals which homes to target to score the latest electronics. Break down boxes and place them inside your bin for stealthy recycling.

3. Use programmable lights. Keep thieves guessing if you’re home with programmable lights. They may be the oldest trick in the book because they work! Set up lights in various rooms to turn on and off on a random schedule. 

4. If you’re traveling, hold the mail or have a neighbor take it in. The USPS offers a hold mail service that you can request online or in person at your local post office. Either choose to have your mail delivered upon your return or pick it up when you get back. Having a neighbor collect your mail and check in on your home is an even better solution because they can inform you of any trouble — and no one you don’t know will have the information that you’re away.

5. Never leave deliveries unattended. Arrrgh … the dreaded porch pirates! Theft of boxes left at the doorstep during work hours has sadly become commonplace. Fortunately, you can protect yourself from pirate plundering with a little pre-planning and creative thinking. Ship items to your office or to a stay-at-home neighbor. Some delivery services can send your packages to a safe place until you can pick them up. FedEx has arrangements to store Amazon deliveries in special lockers at local retailers.

6. Lock doors and keep valuables out of sight. An unlocked door is an open invitation for unwanted visitors. It goes without saying that you should always lock your doors, but even the most diligent people can let their guard down from time to time. Another tip is to tuck your laptops, iPads and other valuables away from sight. Teaching your kids these simple safety habits will prepare them for when they live on their own someday. 

7. Guard against identity theft. The holidays are a good time to check your statements twice to find out if someone naughty is stealing your identity. Review them line by line for extra charges from purchases you didn’t make. Sign up for credit alerts from one of the credit monitoring services available online.

8. Make sure you’re properly insured. Standard homeowners insurance policies cover theft of personal belongings from your home but may exclude high-ticket items like jewelry, electronics and cash. These more-expensive items are popular holiday gifts, but your current policy may limit (or exclude) reimbursement for them, so you may need to add a rider to have them covered. Your local We Insure agent will be happy to provide you with a fast and free homeowners insurance quote. And we can shop over 100 top-rated carriers to find you the best deal on the coverage you need.

Take these tips to heart this holiday season to protect your family and belongings from unfortunate events. From We Insure’s family of service providers across the United States to yours, Season’s Greetings and a happy and healthy New Year!

Once upon a time, the insurance industry was made up of local mom-and-pop agencies who owned local markets, had personal relationships with their customers and handled all the service. In the last 20 years, those same independent insurance providers have been purchased by larger companies or they simply vanished from the marketplace. 

What’s a person who’s interested in hanging their own shingle to do? If you want to operate an independent agency service model, you have a couple of choices: You can either go it alone or team up with a group, aggregator or franchise. 

As our story tells you, small independent agencies are not where the industry is headed, and the primary driver of this change is the insurance market’s distribution model that favors larger companies. In theory, large companies have the capability to produce more policies and are generally less risky to the carrier. That’s precisely where We Insure fits in. 

We Insure began in 2009 to bring a new, innovative independent agency to market and offer a way for entrepreneurs across the country to build strong, sustainable businesses. We Insure addresses customer expectations for efficiency, transparency, choice and value with the back-end support a budding new business owner needs to succeed. 

Designed by agents for agents, We Insure is revolutionizing the independent insurance franchise model by creating a business that focuses on the success of its individual agents, who are in turn strengthened through the support of the company’s ecosystem. We Insure agents are indeed stronger together.

The strength of We Insure is based on four operational principles: passion, solutions, teamwork and integrity. 

Passion. We Insure strives to be the best independent agency solution. Our decision to implement revolutionary technology infrastructure and invest in our call center team are two examples of how our passion influences the way we do business. 

Solutions. We focus on solving problems so our agents can do what they do best — develop and grow customer relationships. If servicing clients is an estimated 65 percent of your time as an agency operator, with We Insure behind you, that time can be spent building your book of business.

Teamwork. We’re stronger together. Our network of agents, staff and carriers comprises an organization that maximizes the insurance experience for We Insure customers. We have strong relationships with the top insurance carriers and many others, so our agents can write policies for just about any need.

Integrity. We pride ourselves on our honesty and moral obligation to all our agents, carriers and insureds. We Insure has a methodical approach to growth to help ensure our existing agents and insureds never feel that company growth is at their expense. 

In 2020, We Insure added more than 50 new agencies and has grown from a booming Florida market to now operating in multiple states, including: in Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and South Carolina.

Dazi Lenoir, Esq is the president and owner of The Lenoir Insurance Agency, which specializes in providing product solutions for personal and business insurance needs with individualized service. Lenoir was a founding and managing partner of Lyons & Lenoir, a boutique law firm that specializes in personal injury, car accidents and wrongful death litigation.

She is active in her community as president of the Kissimmee LEADS Group of the African American Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida, a chamber ambassador for the St. Cloud Chamber of Commerce and vice-chair of the National Alumni Board of Directors for the Florida State University Alumni Association.

“I joined the We Insure family because I wanted to offer the most coverage options at the best possible rates,” says Lenoir. “By offering a variety of insurance providers to my clients, I know I’ll be able to provide the best possible service.”

“Our relationships with the top-rated insurance companies give our customers the power to choose and confidence that they’re properly insured at premiums that work for them, says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “The power of choice is undeniably one of our biggest competitive advantages over captive agencies.”

Announces the Acquisition of New Headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida [news_date] => 2020-12-22 14:05:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1608585534_1430 Prudential Dr w logo.jpg [news_description] => For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL (December 11, 2020) — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance company has announced the purchase of their new headquarters office building located at 1430 Prudential Drive, Jacksonville, FL on December 11, 2020.  

The purchase of the 12,000 square foot building located at 1430 Prudential Drive Jacksonville, FL was for the purpose and benefit of establishing a long-term headquarters for We Insure, Inc. with a vision toward growth and innovation. The new headquarters office, conveniently located near downtown Jacksonville and San Marco, is known as a thriving business and cultural district at the intersection of Prudential Drive and Hendricks Avenue, just a short walk from the beautiful riverbank and fine restaurants. 
  This building purchase is unique because it was completed during a national pandemic.  Even during times of great uncertainty and limited opportunities for growth, We Insure continues to thrive and gain success. We Insure’s ability to make this acquisition happen during these challenging times is paramount to the company’s distinctive franchise offering, hard work, and strategy for growth.

We Insure is one of the nation’s fastest-growing independent insurance franchise operations.  CEO and Founder of We Insure, Philip Visali is aggressively expanding We Insure through its highly attractive franchise offering. The company currently has exceeded more than 140 franchise locations nationwide and is celebrating its most successful year, growing more than 50 franchises in 2020.  
 

With the spectacular growth We Insure has experienced, the need for a larger corporate headquarters was an immediate focus. Philip Visali said “As we grow nationally, keeping the quality of support services for our franchise owners is at upmost importance.  To do that, we also need to grow internally and expand our departments.” Additionally, Philip added “We’re proud to call Jacksonville home and look forward to many more years of success with our headquarters here.  We couldn’t have pulled off this incredible acquisition without the great support of partners including key support from Scott Henley, Senior Vice President of  Newmark Phoenix Realty Group.” 
 

Scott Henley represented We Insure in the acquisition of the building.  He was dedicated to find the perfect location for Philip Visali and the We Insure team.  Scott understood the needs for the new We Insure corporate headquarters and a building to support the culture of the organization. Scott stated, “Locating an office building that would allow We Insure to enhance its company’s brand, culture, and being centrally located within Jacksonville, were important factors in choosing the Prudential Drive location.” The new corporate headquarters will be an advanced office facility along with an outdoor event space. 
   

A grand opening celebration will take place in March 2021.  The corporate headquarters grand opening will be hosting special guests and a ribbon cutting ceremony with the We Insure leadership team and CEO, Philip Visali.

Every year, champagne in hand, we count down to the New Year while watching the ball drop. So, we thought this would be the perfect time to count down ten steps you can take to create a safer home in 2021. 

10. Install a Wi-Fi camera. With the advent of Wi-Fi security cameras, hard wiring is no longer necessary. This brings installation costs down considerably and makes the technology a lot more accessible for many people. Wi-Fi cameras and doorbells can record activity outside your home and send alerts to your mobile phone when motion is detected.

9. Pressure-wash walkways. Don’t let mold and mildew build up on walkways, steps, patios and other hardscapes. Excessive buildup can make these surfaces slippery and a falling hazard. Enlist professional help or rent a pressure washer at your local home store.

8. Install motion-sensitive exterior lights. Motion-sensitive lighting can deter burglars and provide added safety when navigating your property at night. They’re inexpensive and easy to install. And many models are battery-operated and don’t require hardwiring to your existing electrical system.

7. Install a carbon monoxide detector. While smoke alarms are fairly common, homeowners frequently overlook carbon monoxide detectors. But they can be life-saving should this deadly gas build up inside the home. Because these fumes are odorless, they can pose a grave danger when left undetected.

6. Install a monitored security system. Once again, Wi-Fi technology can help you avoid the necessity of hardwiring equipment in your home and lower installation costs. An added bonus: You may also get a discount on your homeowners insurance by showing proof of your security system. Contact your local We Insure agent to see if you qualify.

5. Professionally inspect your chimney. Soot and other debris can build up inside chimneys and cause a fire hazard. Have a local professional thoroughly inspect and clean it out to make sure your chimney is safe and unobstructed. 

4. Purchase fire extinguishers for your home. Place easily accessible fire extinguishers on every floor of your home and make sure everybody in the house knows how to use them properly. Fire extinguishers have different ratings for the types of fires they’re effective on. Be sure you also have a specialized one for grease fires, which are more likely to occur in the kitchen.

3. Anchor furniture to walls. About every 43 minutes, a child suffers injury in a furniture tip-over accident in the United States. Even smaller pieces, like dressers, are vulnerable to this danger. Learn how to properly anchor furniture at https://www.anchorit.gov.  

2. Keep a first-aid kit stocked and ready to use. During the pandemic, many people are hesitant to venture out — even to see a doctor. It’s especially important right now to maintain a well-stocked first-aid kit at home to treat minor injuries. But be sure, however, to seek prompt medical attention for anything serious.

1. Review basic safety habits. Keep doors and windows locked. Close blinds and draperies at night, and store valuables out of sight. And never open the door to strangers. Teach your children basic safety habits to better prepare them for when they will someday live on their own.

While these tips may not be as exciting as a ball drop in Times Square, keeping your home and family safe is certainly worth celebrating. Hopefully, you’ll never need to use your homeowners insurance. But if you do, having the right coverage with a reputable insurer that provides excellent customer service is critical. 

We Insure can help you shop for a policy that’s right for you at a price you can afford — and we’ll be there to assist you should you ever need to file a claim.

Making a mistake with your insurance can cost you. Here’s a list of common missteps that can land you (and your pocketbook) in big trouble if you’re not careful.

Underinsuring your home. As home values appreciate in your neighborhood, you may find yourself underinsured — especially after making major renovations. Insure your home for the cost to rebuild it, and not its current market value. Review your home’s value with your We Insure insurance agent on a regular basis.

Selecting an unaffordable deductible. Choosing a high deductible can save on your monthly premiums, but it’s not a good idea if you can’t afford big upfront costs when disaster strikes. Be sure you have enough money in an emergency fund to cover your maximum deductible should the need arise.

Assuming all your belongings have coverage. Basic homeowners policies routinely exclude a number of items, including jewelry, electronics, artwork, cash and collectibles. The list can vary from carrier to carrier. Review your policy with your agent to make sure you have coverage for all of your valuables. You may need to purchase an additional rider to cover some of these items.

Not shopping around. Depending on where you live, We Insure can compare prices from up to 100 top-rated carriers. This can result in substantial savings on the coverage you need. We’ll do all the legwork for you and give you an apples-to-apples competitive quote for your home, auto, business, RV, boat and other policies you need.

Buying the least expensive coverage. While there’s nothing wrong with shopping around for a good deal, if you let price be the only deciding factor, you might end up with insufficient coverage, or a policy from an insurer that’s not on solid financial footing. Customer service is an important consideration as well. Be sure to balance price with features and service when shopping for a policy.

Ignoring flood risks. Flood insurance is relatively inexpensive and covers a peril that most homeowners insurance policies exclude. Check to see if your home is in the flood zone by consulting the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Buying a bare-bones auto policy. Purchasing the minimum amount of liability insurance may put you in a bind should you ever face a lawsuit after an accident. State-mandated minimums are just that – minimums. Depending on your financial circumstances, it may be advantageous to obtain additional coverage.

Neglecting to ask about discounts. You can often save money on your premiums by documenting that you have an antitheft system in your car or monitored security in your home. You may also save by bundling homeowners and auto insurance policies with the same carrier. A We Insure agent will be happy to check for all available discounts for you.

We Insure offers competitive rates on top-rated homeowners, business, boat, and RV insurance products, among others. Our friendly and knowledgeable agents will give you a fast and free competitive quote for all your needs. All insurance is not the same, and service matters. Call your local We Insure independent agent today.

Marketing is a challenging part of the business puzzle in the best of times. Now that we’re months into the Coronavirus pandemic, agency owners are wondering how to reach new customers and stay in touch with them while being sensitive to their economic conditions and emotional wellbeing.

This conundrum comes from a place of empathy, which is a good thing. In fact, your marketing should always address your customers’ needs and feelings so you can better serve them. 

Create Connection

Effective marketing creates a connection between your company and the individual. Where are opportunities to establish goodwill? 

Begin by putting yourself in their shoes. Brainstorm a list of all the ways you can help your customers by addressing their questions and anticipating their needs during this unprecedented time. 

Remember that not all your customers will share the same concerns. One way to deal with this reality is to create personas for each of your key customer types. A persona would include a symbolic photo of the customer that uses demographic and psychographic data to express their goals, motivations and frustrations. You can refer to the persona when you’re developing marketing content or making customer experience decisions to help ensure you have each customer’s best interest at heart.

As an insurance agent, you’re a trusted advisor, and your customers expect you to be proactive and helpful. In March and April of 2020, many auto insurance companies were partially rebating premiums or offering grace periods for payment. This was an excellent opportunity to check in with customers and communicate with them.  

Communicate Regularly

Keep up with your regular communication streams. With so much upheaval during the pandemic, your outreach should be a source of consistency and reassurance. Even if prospects aren’t ready for your services now, you’ll be top of mind when the time is right. Stick to a schedule and show up in their email inbox, social media feeds or real-world mailbox on a regular basis.  

You might also consider special messaging to highlight changes to the way you work with customers as a result of the pandemic. New office hours, virtual meeting offerings and the like all merit promotion. 

Reset Your Strategy

The pandemic is forcing people to stay home more, which means they’re using technology more, working on home-improvement projects and re-evaluating expenses. 

This is a perfect time to shift your strategy by taking advantage of increased opportunities to get your brand and services in front of customers. Ramp up your social media posting and launch the email newsletter you’ve been thinking about. Consumers have changed their social media usage, with 39 percent reporting using social media more and 87 percent saying they appreciate brands that deliver relevant and timely information. 

Updating their insurance policy or switching providers may already be on their minds. Current and prospective customers will be more receptive to you if you’re looking after their best interests all along the way.

In times of economic uncertainty, interest in franchise business increases. The coronavirus pandemic is changing the workplace in obvious ways, such as a move to remote work and employee layoffs, and likely in ways that won’t be apparent for some time. Women are leaving the workforce at four times the rate of their male counterparts due to the strains of child rearing, household responsibilities and the demands of working a job. 

For those who’ve left the workforce or are envisioning the next stage of their life, a franchise business offers the opportunity to control their professional and financial destiny. 

Owning a franchise can be a challenge with many rewards. There are numerous ownership models that give franchise owners the flexibility to set their own hours and even work remotely. Franchise owners actually report having more work-life balance than traditional employees.

When evaluating franchises, take a closer look at industries that have experienced growth during 2020, including insurance and medical franchises. One way to help you evaluate the stability of a franchise and its financial risk is to answer the following questions in your research: 

1. Is the franchise considered an essential business? This can vary depending on where you want to operate your franchise, but in most states, grocery stores, liquor stores, pharmacies, gas stations, banks, financial services, insurance, hardware stores, technology stores and funeral homes qualify as essential. Businesses that don’t require face to face contact have tended to stay operational through strict shelter-in-place measures.

2. What’s the startup cost? Cost of entry will vary by brand and industry, but for most franchises, you’ll need between $50,000 and $250,000 to start. Franchises with a lower barrier to entry include many home-based businesses and service-based franchises, such as insurance.

3. Is the revenue cyclical or seasonal — upfront or recurring? Seasonal trends and long-term economic cycles can influence business demand. It’s important to know what you can expect so you can better anticipate and weather any ebbs and flows. One way to smooth out the curves is to get into a business that brings in a consistent revenue stream. When revenue is recurring, as it often is with insurance products, you have more predictable income, which franchise owners love.

4. How established is the franchise brand? In uncertain times, people look for businesses with a proven track record. Look for a franchise that has been running profitably for five years or more with a seasoned leadership team. While some successful businesses turn to a franchise model to grow quickly, they may not have experience working with franchisees. Be sure that you’re comfortable with the service level and support that partners receive.

While starting a business comes with inherent risks, you can help mitigate them by using an analytical selection process. To choose a business that suits your needs, include questions that explore brand, revenue, upfront costs, and performance in challenging times.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL, January 22, 2021 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announces the opening of We Insure Advocates, the first We Insure franchise in South Carolina.  

Co-owners of We Insure Advocates, husband and wife team Mandy and Tad Fulford, operate a five-office realty brokerage, RE/MAX Southern Shores, which is the top-producing real estate company along the Grand Strand of SC with 170-plus agents. RE/MAX Southern Shores has offices in North Myrtle Beach, Carolina Forest, Garden City, Conway & Florence, SC. The Fulfords also own Stay and Play Myrtle Beach, a property management company, and Motto Mortgage Advocates. The couple has a mission to help others live abundant lives, fulfilled through their real estate businesses and now further enhanced with insurance services.  

Tad Fulford describes their business as people-centered and the companies they’ve created as focused on helping people reach their life goals. This means assisting customers in finding the home of their dreams and providing tools and resources for their employees to optimize their personal and professional potential. Insurance service offerings further strengthen their position as a trusted advisor to clients.  

“Our vision is to perfect this model in the Grand Strand market and continue to grow in South Carolina and North Carolina,” says Mandy Fulford. “We’re thrilled to have Terri Branson as our Agent in Charge to work with clients and grow our insurance team with her extensive recruitment and training skills.” Branson has 20 years of property and casualty insurance experience in South Carolina, counseling clients on how to minimize financial exposures.  

Mandy Fulford adds, “We Insure’s model is really innovative. There aren’t many independent agency groups that can offer this kind of efficiency in a service model. We’ll be able to originate the business and let the We Insure servicing team do what they do best, which will help us reach our goals faster.”  

“The Fulford’s have built the top-producing real estate brokerage in their area because they understand what it takes to be at the top in a competitive market,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer, Chris Pflueger. “They’ve built a strong office by expanding their service offering, which helps recruit agents and deliver a seamless customer experience.

We hope the day never comes, but should you find yourself in the aftermath of a car accident, here’s what you should and shouldn’t do:

1. Check for injuries. Make sure that you, your passengers and everyone in the other party involved are okay. Call 911 for an ambulance right away if anyone is hurt.

2. Get to safety. Never leave your car in a roadway or other location where it can pose a danger to yourself or other drivers. Safely steer or push your car off the road and stand clear of traffic. Turn on your hazard lights to make your vehicle more visible to passing cars. If you have cones, flares or reflective triangles, set them up to alert oncoming vehicles.

3. Document vehicle damage. Inspect both cars for any signs of damage. Snap pictures of the position of the vehicles and any dings, dents or other damage as long as it’s safe to do so.

4. Obtain a police report. If you call the police, a law enforcement officer can come to the scene of the accident and take down statements from both drivers to include in a report. You can then request a copy to provide to your insurer.

5. Gather information. Exchange names and insurance information with the other driver. Take down the driver’s license and license plate numbers, vehicle make/model and accident location. If possible, get the names and contact information of any witnesses as well as the police officer (including his or her badge number) who took the report.

6. Decide whether to file a claim. There are many factors that go into making this important decision, such as: who is at fault, the specifics of your policy including your deductible, and the impact that a claim might have on your insurance premium. 

7. Follow up with your agent. Talk to your We Insure agent to understand your coverage and see whether a filed claim will result in a rate increase. If it does, he or she can shop around to see if there is a better deal elsewhere.

We hope you never have an accident, but if you happen to be reading this before you do, take this opportunity to review your current auto policy with an experienced We Insure agent. 

Having the knowledge and confidence that you have the right coverage is one of the best things you can do to protect yourself in the event of an accident. What you don’t want to wonder about after a fender bender is whether you have adequate coverage. 

We Insure will comparison shop the policy you need from as many as 100+ top-rated carriers depending on where you reside. 
Our agents are independent, which means their loyalty is to you and not a single carrier they represent. Their goal is to find you the best value on the coverage you need — no matter who provides it. Call your local We Insure agent today for a free consultation.

Homeowners insurance can be complex with many options and factors that determine cost. The good news is all that complexity can also offer opportunities to save. And with a We Insure agent at your side doing a little comparison shopping on your behalf, you can get the right coverage at a great value from a top-rated insurer.
 
Here are some tips that could score you big savings on your next premium: 

1. Raise your deductible. Your deductible is what you have to pay on a claim before your insurance kicks in. The higher your deductible, the lower your premium. While raising your deductible is one way to save, be certain that you can cover the higher out-of-pocket cost should you ever need to file a claim.

2. Bundle coverage. Bundling home and auto coverage may earn you discounts on both. Your We Insure agent can provide you with a fast and free quote for bundling with one of your existing insurers — and find out if you could save more by moving both policies to a new carrier altogether. 

3. Check for discounts. If you have a monitored home security system, you could see a reduction on your next premium. And if you’ve made other improvements, such as replacing your roof or installing hurricane windows, those may also lower your costs. Talk to your We Insure agent to learn more.

4. Improve your credit. Insurers can charge you more if your credit is less than stellar. But a little credit remediation that raises your FICO score could lower your premium. The first step is obtaining a copy of your credit report from all three bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You’re entitled to one free report per year from each, and you can request them at annualcreditreport.com.

5. Go paperless. Save the trees and some money while you’re at it. Some insurers offer discounts to encourage customers to switch over to paperless billing. If you’re good with receiving electronic statements, see if you can nab a discount in return.

6. Don’t over-insure. When it comes to insurance, more isn’t always better. And while you never want to be underinsured, over-insuring your home and belongings can be wasteful. Don’t take out riders you don’t need — and purchase only necessary coverage. For example, a home’s replacement cost (the cost to bring your home back to its original condition) may be significantly less than its market value. Insuring your home for its market value may be unnecessary in this instance. On the other hand, electing for coverage for the depreciated value of the contents of your home won’t allow you to replace old items with new.

7. Shop around. Tweaking the coverage of your existing policy to save money may not provide nearly the cost savings you could achieve by shopping your coverage with other insurers. A We Insure agent will be happy to provide a complimentary quote based on an apples-to-apples comparison with top-rated carriers in your area.

We Insure agents aren’t loyal to one insurer. Their loyalty is to you — and finding you the best possible deal on the homeowners insurance you need. Call your local agent for a fast and free quote today.

Of all the franchise opportunities available today, insurance is one of the top choices for business people who’ve already had a rich professional life and want to pivot to a new, rewarding career. These would-be business owners come from all walks of life, but the ones with sales, marketing, and finance knowledge, along with a depth of life experience, tend to smoothly transition into insurance franchises and find early success. 

What’s great about insurance is that it’s easy to enter the industry, and earning potential is high from the start. You don’t have to be a licensed insurance agent to own a franchise. You can hire one or get the right candidate up to speed with training and licensure quickly. We Insure can help you obtain the instruction and credentials you need. And we offer ongoing educational programs and support for you and your employees. 

Yes, it’s true that insurance franchise owners have the opportunity to earn big right from the start. If you have a large existing professional network, your contact list is an excellent kick start to your agency.

Sales sharks aren’t the only business professionals who find success in insurance — there are many types of individuals who do exceptionally well with We Insure. Professionals from real estate gravitate to home insurance, while those with a financial background might enjoy the nuances of business insurance. We Insure offers the gamut of auto, home, business and health insurance products, so you may consider one area your specialty, but you’ll also be in a position to offer insurance to meet all of your clients’ needs. 

Do you like to help people? Are you a problem-solver? If you answer yes to both questions, and you have a self-starter mindset, insurance can be the right fit for you. Insurance franchise ownership is perfect for someone who enjoys getting to know people and understanding their needs. You can be the agency owner who takes great pleasure in finding solutions that balance needed protections with value. 

Many We Insure franchise owners are just entering the prime of their lives. They’re looking for the next act of their professional careers to provide stability and high-earning potential with low risk, and that’s why insurance is so attractive as a business opportunity.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, FL February 5, 2021 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of Flagler Family Insurance in Tequesta, Florida.

Flagler Family Insurance Owner Bill Flagler started in the insurance industry in 1984 selling home and auto insurance. He expanded his sales capabilities to commercial, group health and life insurance, and then opened an agency in downtown Chicago in 1999. Following a move to Florida, Flagler opened the new We Insure agency with his son David Flagler.

Flagler says, “We Insure will allow me to do what I do best, which is to develop relationships and sell insurance, with We Insure as my backroom service center.”

“We Insure is an attractive independent insurance model because we offer full support in operations, technology and marketing. This allows franchise partners to focus on providing superior service to their customers and growing those relationships,” says We Insure Co-CEO, Deb Franklin.

“With his many years of experience, Bill could have chosen to launch his new agency independently, but he selected We Insure as a partner — and we believe that's a testament to the level of support we provide agency owners.”

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of the Top 100 Low Cost Franchises in 2020 and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisees’ satisfaction and performance rankings.

If there’s anything the last year has shown us, it’s the importance of a financial safety net. The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on the personal finances of many Americans. And although nothing outweighs the loss of life, devastating financial circumstances create hardships all their own. While 2020 and 2021 are unique in terms of the pandemic’s global impact, the truth is financial emergencies affect many individuals at some point or another. Having a financial safety net in place is critical to weathering the storm whenever it occurs.

Here are three foundational elements to a financial safety net, which can help buffer the impact of hardships such as a job loss, health crisis and property loss or damage.

1. Establish an emergency fund.
It’s important to have sufficient funds set aside in a safe, highly liquid savings vehicle, such as an FDIC-insured savings account (higher-yield options are often available online) or short-term certificate of deposit (CD) to cover expenses in the event of an emergency. Shoot for a minimum of 3-to-6 months’ worth to start. Some advisers suggest trying to grow this to a year’s worth of expenses over time. This may seem like a daunting task, but don’t let this dissuade you from starting. Cutting back on nonessential spending, picking up a side hustle or even selling items can help jumpstart your emergency fund efforts.

2. Obtain adequate insurance protection.
Don’t wait for an emergency to strike before becoming familiar with the details of your insurance. There are a number of policies available to help protect your finances in an emergency. Most people have homeowners and auto insurance, but many do not fully understand their coverage. This is why it’s important to review all your policies with a knowledgeable agent to ensure you have adequate protection. 

You should also consider life insurance to protect against the loss of a primary breadwinner’s income, disability insurance if sufficient coverage is unavailable through your employer, long-term-care insurance to offset the cost of care as you age and an umbrella policy for additional protections. Speak to your local We Insure agent for a complimentary review of your current policies, no matter who the provider is. Your agent will be happy to give you a free, competitive quote to make sure you get the right coverage at the best price.

3. Plan ahead for retirement.
The timing of a financial hardship can be a significant factor in terms of its impact on your personal finances. When a setback occurs close to retirement, especially when retirement savings are not where they should be, this can force you to continue working longer than planned. The closer you are to retirement, the more important it is to have a safety net in place because you’ll have fewer working years left to recoup lost wages or rebuild depleted savings. Work with a qualified financial advisor to make sure you’re contributing regularly and sufficiently toward your retirement. That way, you’ll be in a better position to weather any hardships — no matter when they come.

Getting Started
If you don’t already have a safety net in place, don’t panic. Start saving what you can afford to each month. Fortunately, not every financial challenge is a major one, and even small amounts set aside can help you pay an unexpected repair bill without adding to credit card debt. And it costs nothing to have your insurance reviewed by a We Insure agent. In fact, you may end up saving money — and being better prepared for whatever the future holds.

We Insure means business. And we love to help businesses build a firm foundation for success by providing them with the insurance protection they need. All business owners have one thing in common, no matter what they sell; they need to assemble a solid team that they can count on to advise them on all aspects of their operations, including: legal, financial and accounting, IT, sales, marketing — and insurance. 

At We Insure, we take our responsibility to business owners seriously, and we make it our business to get to know your business so we can find coverage that’s tailored to your needs at an affordable price. We Insure provides commercial property, liability, auto, business interruption and other policies to help mitigate business risks and protect your bottom line.

Business Owners Policies: We Insure offers many business policies separately as well as conveniently bundled and affordably priced in a Business Owners Policy (BOP)

Commercial General Liability: can include coverage for products, operations and premises, including property damage (rented or owned), personal injury and medical expenses as well as advertising injury.

Business Vehicle: may include comprehensive and collision, liability, medical payments, coverage for use of employee and leased vehicles, uninsured/underinsured motorist, roadside assistance, gap coverage and loss of income.

Commercial Property: can include coverage for owned or leased buildings, property on job sites, warehouses and contents, fire, storm, burst water pipes, equipment, computers and other electronics, as well as money and securities used in your business if they are stolen, destroyed or lost.

Business Interruption: can cover losses in the event of damaged equipment, vandalism, fire, hail or windstorm and certain forced closures. These policies can reimburse lost net income and continuing business expenses like rent, mortgage, advertising, salaries and taxes.  

Commercial Umbrella: extends liability coverages provided by other underlying policies, such as property or auto insurance, and can help pay certain expenses if you’re liable for damages that exceed the underlying policy limits. 

Workers’ Compensation: provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees who become sick or injured on the job and help pay medical bills, rehab, lost wages and other benefits. Many businesses are mandated by law to provide this coverage.

Whether Your Business is Large or Small — We’re Here to Help
There are many risks business owners face, but We Insure can help you find the right blend of coverage to meet your company’s needs. And we’ll be there to answer your questions and — should you ever need to — file a claim. 

If you’re starting a business, we’d be happy to walk you through the coverage options available to you. And if you have an existing business policy, we’ll shop around to make sure you’re getting the best coverage at the most competitive price. Contact your local We Insure agent today for all your business insurance needs.

*Individual coverage for various business policies may vary. Your agent can review the specific details of your policy, including its limits and any exceptions.

Lauderdale, Florida.

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models.
Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 150 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of just 80 businesses to qualify for its 2020 Top Franchises for Veterans list and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2021. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisee satisfaction and performance rankings.     
New agency owner Michael Internoscia has been a licensed real estate broker for more than 20 years and a licensed lender for nearly 10 years. In addition to We Insure South Florida Associates, he currently operates MME Capital Management LLC, a $90 million private lending fund specializing in residential investment property and yacht loans. He is the membership chair of the Florida Association of Mortgage Professionals, and a member of the National Association of Realtors and International Yacht Broker Association.  

“We Insure is an easy complementary business to what we do daily,” says Internoscia.  “I chose We Insure after reviewing several other franchise style insurance firms because it has the best back-office support and best ‘people’ culture to assist me in delivering what we do best. It’s a true win-win.”
 

In addition, Michael brought on board a 20-year veteran , Miriam Perez as the Agent in Charge to deliver the We Insure power to choose philosophy immediately to the valued customers they interact with daily.  

“When real estate firms add insurance to their offerings, they strengthen their customer experience by delivering in-house insurance expertise, which is invaluable early in the luxury real estate transaction,” adds Chris Pflueger, We Insure Chief Development Officer. “Furthermore, the agency is creating a residual profit center that helps them ride economic cycles with greater certainty.”

The franchise world is as vast and diverse as the good old USA. At the end of 2019, more than 770,000 franchises were in operation, including quick-service restaurants, lodging and business services. With that variety of industries, each with different degrees of owner involvement, comes a host of personal and professional dynamics that contribute to a businessperson’s ability to succeed as a franchise owner. 

Many people dream of what it would be like to be their own boss and have unlimited earning potential. In our fantasies, we can romanticize the idea of owning a business. When you decide you’re serious about researching franchises and see what the investment is, however, thoughts about whether you’re up to the task may start to creep in. 

Can you fill the shoes of a franchise owner? 

Owning a business is decidedly more complicated than a 9 to 5, clock-in, clock-out job — although it can also be a great deal more rewarding. Franchise owners need to have vision, remain hyper-focused on goal attainment, and make quick work of difficult decisions. 

What Successful Owners Have in Common 


Leadership. You don’t have to be a c-suite executive to be a leader. They live at all levels of an organization. Honesty, integrity, optimism and exceptional communication skills are some of the top strengths of leaders. As the owner of a franchise, you’ll need to rely on these strengths to guide operations with enthusiasm and energy. Your words and actions carry weight in an ownership role.
 

Resilience.
If 2020 is any indicator, business owners need the will to get up when they get knocked down. Setbacks happen in all businesses, either due to outside economic forces, internal management or operational issues. Can you handle the lows and pivot and recalibrate to achieve your objectives? If you can use setbacks as opportunities for growth, you’ll have a leg up in the franchise world.
 

Marketing and sales skills.
As the franchise owner, you’re the mouthpiece for your business and the number one salesperson. Without a solid, ongoing effort in marketing and sales, however, your business will not produce the returns you expect. Because marketing is so critical, franchise companies often provide support in this area. But you’ll still need to be the boots on the ground by networking and creating business partnerships.
 

Business Management Skills.
Just because you love dogs, that doesn’t mean you should necessarily buy a doggie daycare. There are many other considerations for matching your skills and personality to the franchise model and industry. In general, owners spend more time overseeing the business than in day-to-day operations. You’ll need to be — or quickly get comfortable with — all areas of general business management, including customer service, accounting and human resources functions, such as payroll.
 

Self- and Franchise Knowledge.
Self-awareness is key to success in any big life or business decision you make. Honestly examine your work style and strengths to see if you’re prepared to own and lead a business. And do your homework on any franchise you’re considering.
 

If you’re ready to take the next step, we invite you to learn more about the benefits of becoming part of the We Insure family. Our proven business model, focused on customer experience and exceptional agent support, is upending the insurance industry. We offer unparalleled access to carriers and operational, service, IT and marketing support to franchise owners, allowing We Insure to rapidly expand to more than 150 retail locations nationwide and earn its place among Franchise Business Review’s Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020

Insurance [news_date] => 2021-03-05 15:30:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1614976492_WE-INSURE_FRA-Social-Media-March-CustExperience.jpg [news_description] => Q: What do customers really want from their real estate agent and brokerage?
A: One-stop shopping. 

They want the home-buying experience to be a seamless interaction. In the customer’s eyes, the process includes working with a real estate agent to find the home, researching mortgage options, choosing a lender, managing the closing and obtaining the right insurance. 

Home buyers also want the real estate transaction to be as simple as ordering from Amazon. The “Amazon effect” has raised customer expectations for both online and offline transactions. Consumers don’t want complicated; nor do they want slow. They want it to be easy, and they want it fast. 

A National Association of REALTORS-commissioned study by Harris Poll on consumer preferences for real estate services shows consumer support for one-stop shopping. 

The most recent 2019 survey indicates that 95% of homebuyers would consider a model that provides mortgage, title, warranty and insurance. Notably, 79% of respondents said that making the home-buying process more efficient and manageable was important to them, and nearly 50% of recent homebuyers used one source to procure home-buying services in 2019. 

Because the entire home-buying process can take 10-to-12 months on average, there are many opportunities to deliver impactful service. But like all customer journeys, there are specific touchpoints that stand out in the customer’s memory. In the case of real estate, it’s the closing. If you can master the closing, you’ll have loyal clients for life. 

For real estate agency owners, the idea that you’re competing on customer experience is not new. You already may have expanded your service offering to include mortgage and title because you understand that home buyers see the process as one journey. The other reasons you added ancillary services, according to the 2013 Imprev Thought Leader Survey, was higher profits, one-stop marketing opportunities, increased customer satisfaction and enhanced quality control. 

Adding insurance to your business can help you achieve both customer experience objectives to control and expedite the closing process. “It’s also a great way to keep in touch with your clients between your transactions,” advised Chris Pflueger, Chief Development Officer of We Insure. Offering insurance services also allows you to maintain the book of business you’ve worked hard to build. When your clients buy insurance, it gives you many more opportunities to maintain the client relationship over time, so you’re top of mind when they decide to re-list the home. 

We Insure works with the top real estate brokerages in the United States to deliver an innovative independent insurance agency model that owners depend on for marketing, back-end support and access to top carriers from day one. It’s simple to get started, even without prior insurance industry experience — contact We Insure to learn more about our independent insurance franchise opportunities.

Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 202 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 83,000 people and added nearly $11 billion to the Florida economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, and Orlando—brought in the highest revenue overall.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Regionals: Florida, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at https://www.inc.com/inc5000/regionals/florida starting March 16, 2021.

“This list proves the power of companies in Florida no matter the industry,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”

If you’re traveling in a region prone to extreme temperatures, flooding or perilous terrain, a breakdown can quickly go from an inconvenient delay to a life-threatening emergency. And remember that no matter where you are, severe weather can come without much warning. While you can’t always avoid a problem, you can take preparations to help reduce the risk of a disastrous outcome. 

First Line of Defense: Cellphone Coverage
Having a working cellphone with extensive nationwide coverage is important. If your service works great in the city, but is spotty elsewhere, that could be a problem on the road. That phone is a literal lifeline to medical or rescue crews, so it’s worth buying a plan with a provider who “covers the map.” 

But don’t count on your cellphone alone in the event of an emergency. You still may end up in a situation where you have to rely on yourself (and whatever you have on hand) if you’re outside of a coverage area or in such extreme conditions that emergency workers can’t reach you for an extended period of time. This is when a well-stocked emergency kit comes in handy.

Be Prepared
There are many pre-packaged emergency kits available, but the contents and quality vary enormously. You may want to start with one of the pre-packs and add to it, or you can just get a large duffel bag and fill it with the items you need. This is a long list, but it can’t cover every need, so always assess your own situation and plan accordingly. Periodically inspect and replenish your supplies as necessary.

• Phone-charging cables
• Electrical tape and duct tape 
• Heavy work gloves
• Crank-style flashlight (no worries about dead batteries)
• Solar cellphone charger 
• Emergency battery booster (rechargeable battery to jump start your vehicle and supply 12-volt power and USB charging)
• Jumper cables
• First aid kit that includes things like: bandages, eye wash, medical gloves, scissors, tweezers, medical tape, antibiotic cream, burn cream and aspirin 
• Spare tire (be sure to check your spare periodically)
• Tire-changing tools (if they didn’t come with your car) 
• Can of tire sealant/tire plug kit 
• Small fire extinguisher
• Replacement automotive electrical fuses (varying amperages that cover those in your car)
• Collapsible pail and shovel
• Basic mechanic toolkit with things like: hammer, flathead and Phillips screwdrivers, a quality multi-tool, and a variety of pliers and wrenches to suit your car’s fittings
• Survival knife (often comes with a compass and other gear)
• Blankets
• Packable rain ponchos and umbrella
• Warm clothing if traveling in the cold (coats, gloves, hats)
• Ice scraper/brush
• Reflective safety vest
• Reflective traffic warning triangles/flares
• Fuel siphon (use to remove fuel from someone else’s tank to add to yours when you run out)
• Small empty gas can
• Toilet paper
• Hand wipes and sanitizer
• Red plastic or cloth banner you can tie (or duct tape) onto your car antenna to mark the location of your car in a blizzard or to alert passersby that you need assistance 
• Tarp
• Something you can put under your tires to get traction in sand, mud or snow (e.g. carpet strips, sand or non-clumping kitty litter)
• Enough water for all passengers in a container that can survive both high heat and freezing
• Enough emergency food for all passengers (non-perishable, calorie-dense items like energy bars or even MREs)
• Pet food and supplies
• Extra masks for all passengers
• Sturdy, comfortable hiking shoes 
• Extra supply of any medications that anyone in your vehicle takes.

Way Off Grid
If you’re thinking about going on a road trip with long stretches of bad cell coverage or a campsite way off the grid for a while, you can rent a satellite phone for the duration of the trip. Satellite phones can get a signal where many cellphones can’t.

Auto Insurance 
No matter how careful you are, you may someday find yourself in a situation. And that’s the worst time to learn that your auto insurance doesn’t provide the protection you thought it did — and where a premium policy with roadside assistance can really pay off. These responders can jumpstart a dead battery, change a tire or give you gasoline to get you back on the road. Beyond roadside coverage, some plans also offer travel interruption insurance and even pay for accommodations, meals and rental car coverage if your vehicle isn’t drivable. 

Call your local We Insure agent today for a complimentary review of your existing auto policy. We’ll explain your coverage and even shop around to see if we can find you better coverage — or a lower price — from one of our many top-rated carriers.

We Insure wishes you safe travels.

If you think auto, home and health insurance cover all of the bases, you may need to think again. You’ve done your due diligence, negotiated rates and even bundled policies to save on premiums. You’re off to a good start, but unless you’re carrying more than just these three types of policies, you may not have done everything possible to protect yourself and your family. There’s a world of risks out there. Fortunately, there’s a way to help protect yourself against many of them — with the right type of coverage. Here are some often-overlooked protections that can provide a valuable lifeline during a crisis.

Umbrella Policy
Coverage: Personal Liability, Lawsuits and Other Risks
Your personal savings could be at risk if someone takes you to court for an accident that you cause or one that happens on your property. If someone sues you for more than your auto or home policy coverage limits, you might even have to liquidate your home and savings to pay the difference. To prevent this disastrous outcome, you can often acquire an affordable umbrella policy that will pick up where your auto or home policy coverage ends. Typically, they cover up to $1 million in damages, although lower and higher amounts are available. 

Disability Insurance
Coverage: Loss of Income Due to Injury
You may have some disability insurance through your employer. Evaluate the coverage you have — or is available to you — and compare that to what you might need should you become unable to work. Why? According to the Social Security Administration, 25% of 20-year-old workers will become disabled before they reach retirement.1 Those aren’t exactly reassuring odds. If you’ve been making contributions to Social Security, you may also be eligible for some federal benefits. However, there’s a rigorous qualification process, and the amounts offered may not be enough to meet your monthly expenses. A disability insurance policy is a smart hedge against losing your income due to injury. 

Long-term Care Insurance
Coverage: Cost of Care Due to Aging, Chronic Condition or Disability
The cost of residential care in old age is daunting, and our current system often sends patients to the brink of bankruptcy. Because the cost of long-term care is so expensive, the price of insurance for it can be high too — how high depends, in part, on your age and health when you purchase the policy. Hybrid LTC policies are now available that offer a death benefit should the long-term care coverage not be needed, making them a combination of LTC and life insurance. As you approach retirement, this should be one of the topics you discuss with a qualified insurance agent — someone who can evaluate your needs and also research and compare policy options. 

Talk to an Independent We Insure Agent
There are types of policies available other than the ones above. The best way to fit your insurance protection to your needs is to speak with an independent insurance agent with experience in different lines of coverage. We Insure agents are not tied to a single insurance carrier, so they can shop for your policy from a wide variety of top-rated carriers to find the best coverage at the best price for you.

Award winning and Top 100 Insurance Agency Owner Michael Becker retired six years ago after a successful 25 years with a Fortune 500 insurance company. As a very active father of five children, he wanted to be more involved in their education, coach youth sports and serve in their family’s church. Then he learned about the We Insure franchise.

“There are many reasons that led me to return to insurance after retiring,” explains Becker. “One of the most compelling was being able to offer clients more than one insurance option for their needs while still giving them the security and peace of mind of the We Insure brand. I’m very excited to leverage the tools We Insure provides to grow my business.”

We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger adds: “The We Insure model is a home run with partners who know the insurance business because they understand the power of the network and back-end support that We Insure provides.”

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 100 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of the Top 100 Low-cost Franchises in 2020 and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisees’ satisfaction and performance rankings.

Women made up 42% of small-business owners in 2019, up from just 4.6% in 1972, adding credence to the catchphrase “You’ve come a long way baby!” The increase in women-owned businesses is true for franchises as well. According to Franchise Business Review, there’s been a 24% increase in women-owned franchise businesses over the last decade. 

Women are flocking to business ownership for a number of reasons, but a big motivator is “being their own boss.” While the demands of running a business are high, the flexibility and control that come with being the boss can provide just enough room to accommodate the dynamic needs of a family while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Experts also point to a rise in C-suite and upper-level management positions held by women that build the confidence and business acumen required in running a company. 

The fact remains that the majority of child-rearing responsibilities fall to women and women still do more hours of household work a day than men across all age groups. Factor in the pay gap where women still only make approximately 80 cents to the dollar compared to their male counterparts, and it's no wonder why they’re leaving jobs to own their own business where the earning potential is unlimited. 

The top four industries for women-owned businesses are: health, beauty, and fitness services; food and restaurant; retail; and business services. Franchise models in particular provide a level of support that other types of businesses don’t, which can allow women to hit the ground running — and focus on growth and revenue. The low start-up costs for insurance franchises make this business accessible to a broad range of individuals, including women who often lag behind men in savings (remember that gender pay gap we mentioned?).

The accessible start-up cost of a We Insure franchise, along with the strong back-end support, make it a great fit for women. Currently, We Insure boasts 59 women-owned franchises, with more on the way. Insurance always has been and continues to be a hyper-local industry, and women can leverage their community ties to their advantage when promoting their services. Insurance in particular is a relationship business, and many women excel at nurturing and developing these types of relationships.

Kendall Bonner is a prominent business owner, former attorney and RE/MAX Broker.
She owns We Insure Across Florida, RE/MAX Capital Realty and a Motto Mortgage franchise in Tampa Bay alongside her husband William Bonner. Reflecting on her journey as a woman entrepreneur, Bonner says, “My mom was a business owner who used her wisdom and experience to guide others. It’s my goal to honor her legacy by continuing her mission to empower others, especially women. I have always believed ‘each one reach for one.’ And as I move up the ladder, my goal is to bring others along with me.”

If you’re considering investing in an insurance franchise, you probably have questions. Here are answers to some of the most common ones we hear.

Q: How does an insurance franchise work?

A: Insurance franchises operate like typical franchises and help professionals transition to business ownership by providing a business framework and processes that the owner and team implements. The level of support from the franchise operator may vary, but in most cases, the operator provides support in the areas of brand, start-up, technology, operations, marketing and training. 

There are two types of insurance franchises: the captive model that writes policies from a single insurance provider and the independent model that offers policies from multiple carriers. As an insurance franchise agency owner, you may choose to focus your services in one area, like property & casualty, or offer multiple lines. 

Q: Do I need insurance experience to open a We Insure franchise?

A: Our franchise owners come from many backgrounds and industries, like real estate, financial services, insurance and many more. Because of the strong back-office support we provide to our agencies, owners don’t need experience in insurance in order to be successful — they just need drive and a willingness to get started. 

Q: Do I need an insurance license to own a We Insure franchise?

A: A customer-facing member of your team will need to be licensed for the insurance lines you plan to offer. Licensure requirements differ from state to state, so check with your state’s licensing board to find out about licenses, exams and fees. In the case of an owner-operator scenario, the owner holds the licenses. However, it’s more likely that agency owners hire experienced and licensed professionals. 

Q: Can I have my insurance business inside my real estate, wealth management, or law office? 

A: Absolutely! We Insure operates in the pre-existing businesses of many of our agency owners, including automotive retailers, attorneys and title companies. It is not required that you have a stand-alone office.

Q: Can I write policies outside of the state where my business is located?

A: Yes. We have many offices in border states that serve clients across state lines. Generally, this situation requires a resident and non-resident insurance license. Reciprocal agreements are common in many states allowing for the issue of a non-resident producer license with few or sometimes no additional requirements beyond the license application fee. Again, check with the state licensing departments in the states in question to confirm.

Q: How soon can I open?

A: Most of our new franchises open within 2 to 3 months after the decision point. Typically, there are financing and legal considerations plus training for your team. Whether you have an existing office space you can utilize or need to find one will also determine how quickly you can begin operating as well.

Q: How much can I earn?

A: The We Insure model enables franchisees to focus on sales and client relations with We Insure as their support team. Franchisees spend less time on non-revenue-generating activities and more time building their book of business. Because of this, our franchisees start strong and have great upside in earning potential.

Q: How do I get started?

A: Visit our We Insure Franchise website to learn about our franchise opportunity, hear from some of our agency owners in video testimonials, and fill out a contact form. One of our team members will contact you soon — we’ll be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

Jacksonville, FL April 16, 2021 – We Insure was recently named a top franchise by Franchise Business Review in its report on the Top Recession-Proof Franchises for 2021.
 

We Insure is the premier insurance franchise. Passionate about being the very best independent agency solution, We Insure offers their franchise owners advanced technologies and a full support team. With more than 100 of the top-rated insurance carriers and a service team to handle all the administrative work, We Insure franchise owners can focus on what’s most important, finding the best policies for their customers.  

Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

More than 31,000 franchisees representing nearly 300 franchise brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between July 2019 and February 2021. From the research, We Insure was one of just 100 franchise brands to be identified as a Top Recession-Proof Franchise award winner and be featured on the list of the best recession-proof businesses to start.  

We Insure franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. 


“From our perspective, franchisee satisfaction is one of the most important factors to consider before investing in any franchise opportunity,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Franchising has historically performed well in a recession, and for people seeking to be their own boss, the recession-proof businesses we identified this year not only have outstanding satisfaction among their owners, but we feel they hold a strong advantage to outperform their competitors in the years ahead.”    

We Insure’s Chief Development Officer, Chris Pflueger said  “This past year proved that the We Insure business model could withstand a significant economic impact.  And, while insurance is an essential need for all consumers, our We Insure agencies experienced higher sales due to their access to multiple insurance offerings.  While consumers were trying to cut costs wherever they could, We Insure had the unique opportunity to give customers more options and savings.   Additionally, our franchise footprint grew more than 50% as business owners saw the power of business model.”

“We Insure has built strong relationships with top insurance carriers, which enables our franchise partners to get immediate access to excellent rates — an incredible advantage for a new agency,” explains Chief Development Officer, Chris Pflueger.

If you’ve only ever gotten an insurance quote from a big captive insurer, we bet you’ll be surprised to see the We Insure difference. Just look at the image above for an example of the type and amount of information you can access when you request a competitive quote from a knowledgeable, independent We Insure agent.

Don’t Be Held Captive
When you get a quote from a captive agent — a representative of a national insurer with a jingle you can hum — your main options for getting a lower rate are decreasing coverage limits or raising your deductible.

At We Insure, we don’t think that’s much of a choice at all.

With We Insure, you’ll receive an apples-to-apples competitive quote from a broad array of insurers offering comparable coverage on your home, vehicle or business. And while we’ve changed the carrier names in the photo above, those numbers are from an actual homeowner’s insurance quote for a We Insure client. Note how much the premiums can change from insurer to insurer.

Our agents aren’t bound to a single carrier, so they’re free to seek out the best possible coverage for you at the lowest price. Their focus is on understanding and meeting your insurance needs — not on selling the only policy they can offer. And unlike smaller independent insurance agents, We Insure has secured competitive pricing from top-rated carriers with the power of its 160+ (and growing) agencies across the US.

The We Insure Difference
Imagine two people shopping for homeowner’s insurance. One goes to a national captive agent and the other to We Insure. Do you think the captive agent’s quote will look anything like what you see above? It can’t. Ask yourself — would you rather have more information or less? Many choices or just one?

Some people stick with an insurer out of habit. Perhaps it’s all they’ve ever known — or it’s the company their parents used. If you’re one of those people, consider getting a quote from We Insure. It’s fast, easy and free. 

You may decide to keep your policy right where it is, but at least you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that there wasn’t a better choice for you out there somewhere. Whatever you do, don’t leave any of your hard-earned money on the table when you might have secured superior coverage at a lower price. 

The Power of WE
Having the kind of information We Insure provides puts you in the driver’s seat and makes you a more empowered consumer. That’s “The Power of WE.” 

Your local, independent We Insure agent can offer you a competitive quote not just for homeowners insurance, but also for auto, business, boat and RV policies — and beyond. Experience the Power of WE for yourself and call today. You’ve got nothing to lose, and potentially a whole lot to save.

Disaster strikes. You’ve just had a major loss of your home and your belongings. Once you make sure everyone is ok, the next big question on your mind may be, “How much will my insurance pay on my claim?” You dig up your policy, see the coverage limits on the front page and wonder, “Is this what I’ll actually receive after I pay my deductible?”

The answer is … it depends — and you’ll have to look further than your dec page to find out.

Cash Value vs. Replacement Value

A number of factors determine how much homeowners insurance pays out in the event of a claim. The first important consideration is whether your policy reimburses for actual cash value (ACV) or replacement cost. Actual cash value is the item’s depreciated — or used — value. It reflects its resale value based on its current age and condition. The older it is, typically the less its cash value. For example, the big-screen TV you bought to watch the Super Bowl five years ago for $1500 might only have an actual cash value of $450 today. That’s a big difference that wouldn’t allow you to replace that TV with a comparable new item.

Replacement value, on the other hand, reimburses you to purchase a new TV of the same size with similar features to the one that was lost in the insured event. Replacement value policies obviously hold a significant advantage over ACV policies, but they come at a higher cost. Actual cash value and replacement value are subject to policy coverage limits.

Coverage Beyond Policy Limits

However, there’s another type of reimbursement your policy may specify: extended replacement cost. With this endorsement, your carrier can pay for the cost of a home to be rebuilt even if the loss amount exceeds the dwelling coverage policy limits. 

If recent changes in building codes or ordinances preclude you from rebuilding your home to its pre-loss condition — requiring improvements to the structure at an additional cost — even full replacement value on your dwelling may not be enough. In this case, additional ordinance or law coverage would be necessary to reimburse you for that added construction expense.

Your homeowners policy may cover the replacement cost of your physical structure (the amount to rebuild the home), but only the actual cash value of its contents. So, it’s important to read through your policy carefully for these important details and distinctions.

Documentation and Policy Exclusions

You may have to document the loss of a particular item and provide proof of purchase in order to receive reimbursement by your insurer. This is why it’s a good idea to keep copies of receipts (especially for more valuable possessions) in a safety deposit box or stored digitally in the cloud. 

Make a detailed and thorough inventory. Describe each item, indicate the time of purchase and take photographs or a video of the contents of your home, room by room. Store that information offsite in a secure location.

Note that your policy may also have limits or exclusions for certain types of items, such as cash, antiques, artwork, jewelry or electronics. However, sometimes you can purchase additional coverage for such things in the form of a rider.

Know Your Limits

Other aspects of your policy may limit your reimbursement following an insured event. Experiencing a major loss is bad enough — you don’t want to go through a second round of panic afterward wondering if you have enough coverage. This is why it’s so important to read through your policy to understand its terms and conditions ahead of time.

A knowledgeable We Insure agent will be happy to review your current homeowners policy — and provide you with a fast and free comparison quote to make sure you’re getting the best coverage at the lowest price. Don’t find out the hard way that you don’t have the insurance protection you need. Call We Insure today.

[news_date] => 2021-05-04 11:05:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1620140741_WE-INSURE_FR-Social-Media-May-BBB.jpg [news_description] =>
In a world where consumers have increasingly turned to free online sources like Google Reviews, Facebook, Yelp and Trustpilot, you might wonder whether the cost of an accreditation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is still worthwhile. 

About the BBB

The BBB first gave consumers a voice in 1912. Its focus on consumer protection and industry regulation began during a time when consumers had few channels for disputing unsavory business practices. Fast forward to today, and the BBB continues to vet businesses against their code of conduct, award A+ to F ratings and facilitate dispute resolution. The organization also employs a recently introduced star review system. 

There is a cost to accreditation, but the BBB does not limit its reporting to accredited businesses. Non-accredited businesses can receive ratings and reviews, but they cannot promote BBB affiliation and rating. The page of a non-accredited business on the BBB site will not have your organization’s branding. Accredited businesses, however, can promote their rating online and offline, which is important for brick-and-mortar establishments.  

Is One Source for Reviews Enough?

In short, the more positive reviews your agency has, the better. And the best way to achieve that is to have multiple sources. 

We like to say, “Meet your customers where they are.” And these days, while many customers congregate at sites like Facebook, Google and Yelp, there are still those that regularly turn to the BBB to vet the companies they’re considering doing business with. 

Unique Advantages

The BBB is a historically strong indicator of trustworthiness and credibility. Consumers know and trust the BBB Torch Seal. Using the seal in your print materials and displayed in your office can provide a favorable first impression. 

The BBB also handles reviews a little differently than other sites. They don’t allow anonymous reviews, and reviewers must verify their identity through email or text. Also, businesses receive notices when they have a BBB customer review and have an opportunity to respond before public postings. Take managing your online reputation seriously, across all review sites. Respond to any negative feedback promptly and professionally.

Lead Generation Benefits

According to the BBB, people view hundreds of thousands of BBB Accredited Business listings each month on their website. This makes them a valuable source for leads. The site provides visitors with a link to the business website, email contact information and phone number. And keep your client demographic in mind: The 40+ crowd may know and trust a BBB rating more than millennials. These may be exactly the kind of leads you want most. 

As a franchise owner, consider the company you partner with and their long-standing reputation. We Insure has built a strong brand and credible standing with the BBB. An insurance franchise engages customers and partners and focuses on growing BBB ratings. Syncing your business with a company that implements this strategy simultaneously builds your credibility and visibility.

With opportunities to build trust, generate reviews and prospect new business, BBB accreditation offers many advantages that agency owners should strongly consider.

LinkedIn is the largest professional networking platform and offers unique marketing opportunities for agency owners. It’s a great tool for showcasing your expertise and establishing connections. Here are a few ways to maximize your results. 

1. Craft a well-written, optimized profile.
Don’t underestimate the power of your personal LinkedIn account. After all, most folks tend to want to connect more with actual people than companies. Use good keywords, including your city or geographic area, target market and the insurance lines you specialize in so you’ll be more easily found. Don’t be afraid to get really specific in the description of your services — for example, business liability insurance for tech companies. Consider engaging a professional writer or editor to sharpen your copy — and a proofreader to review for typos and grammatical errors. And be sure to refer to the We Insure LinkedIn Score Card for more helpful tips. 

2. Display a professional profile image
. Hire a photographer to snap a high-quality headshot if you can. But if you choose to do it yourself, pay particular attention to the lighting, background and your attire (which should be polished and professional). Take a number of shots to choose from. A good profile photo not only elevates the image of your agency, but it creates a good first impression, helps establish a personal connection and makes you more memorable. 

3. Post topics of interest to your audience.
Many people are unsure of what to post about on LinkedIn. This isn’t Facebook, so the topics should be largely in the arena of professional issues (and stay far away from controversial subjects and politics). Post about the types of things you would share with customers or colleagues in your field: industry-related news, helpful tips, business milestones, new hires, professional awards or recognition, your philanthropic activities and even legislation that affects policy holders. Set a goal for how often you want to post and stick to it. 

4. Focus on engagement first.
The point of LinkedIn isn’t to rack up as many connections as possible, but to engage meaningfully with others. To get the most out of LinkedIn, use it to build relationships first before focusing on prospecting. Spend just as much time — if not more — commenting on others’ posts, congratulating them on their milestones and connecting your connections to each other if you feel it would be mutually beneficial. 

5.
Attract top talent. LinkedIn is a terrific resource for finding your next new hire. You can post a status update, asking your connections to recommend a qualified candidate to fill your position. Or post an opening on LinkedIn’s job board. You can also search your network for the specific criteria relevant to the job you’re trying to fill. For example, search by someone who has worked for a competitor, people with a specific job title in their history — or someone who is an alumnus of your college. 

6. Add links to your blog content.
Include links to helpful articles on your feed, but make sure they add value for your audience rather than reading more like an ad for your agency. This can help drive traffic to your website and increase your brand awareness. Be sure to include an image or graphic to boost engagement — and if you can make and post a short video, that can help draw even more visitors’ attention. Don’t worry about it if your video isn’t professionally shot — you can use your smartphone camera. But be sure to take the video in landscape mode (horizontally), use good lighting and set up your phone on a tripod to keep it steady. Keep your videos short — just a couple of minutes is all you need to make a connection. 

7. Leverage the power of groups
. LinkedIn groups can be based around an area of professional interest and/or geographic parameters. Join and participate in the groups most relevant to your offerings — and where your prospects are most likely to be. Engage by posting articles and answering members’ questions. But again, don’t sell too hard if you want to stay on the good side of your group. If you can’t find a group that’s right for you, consider starting one yourself. 

Put All Your Hard Work to Good Use
 

Once you’ve done all that work setting up and using your LinkedIn account, don’t forget to link out to your LinkedIn profile from your website and email correspondence to give it the most visibility possible. And just like any other marketing channel, putting in consistent effort is key to success.

Agency Manager, Zoey Kettel is an expert insurance agent gaining experience with both captive and independent insurance agencies.  After Kettel joined We Insure as an insurance producer, she was confident in her career choice.  The access to more than 100 markets and full back-end support gave Kettel the opportunity for unlimited growth, promoting her to an entrepreneur role as the Agency Manager of We Insure Across Florida. 

“I chose the opportunity to manage We Insure Across Florida because I was previously a producer under another We Insure,” says Kettel.  “I love the culture of the company, and the support of our agency network.  Additionally, the many carriers and the full customer service team gives me the flexibility to better serve my clients.”

We Insure is an attractive independent insurance model because we provide full support in operations, technology and marketing,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “In doing so, the franchise partners can focus on providing superior service to their customers and growing those relationships.”    
We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and more than 100 total markets, to provide its customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of the Top 100 Low-Cost Franchises in 2020 and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2020. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisees’ satisfaction and performance rankings.

We Insure added more than 50 franchises across 14 states in 2020 and anticipates record growth in 2021.

We Insure Mile High is operated by owners Pete Crowe and Lori Paris. Crowe, We Insure’s Chief Revenue Officer, served as Executive Vice President for RE/MAX and Motto Mortgage franchise brands before joining We Insure. Paris, who will run the agency’s day-to-day operations, has extensive client management and insurance industry experience from previous roles in brokerages and captive insurance agencies. 

Paris and Crowe recognize a need for the independent insurance brokerage model in the Denver area and the state at large. While captive agencies have a presence in the state, there is an opportunity to bring more choice and next-level customer experience to residents of the nation’s second-fastest-growing state.

“We’re excited to grow with the residents of Colorado,” Paris says. “Whether Coloradans are buying a car, their first home or opening a business, We Insure will be there to help and support our clients for life.”

Crowe adds: “It’s exciting to be able to both grow the brand and live it from the agency owner’s perspective. It’s a testament to our ability to give people a model to grow their own business whether they’ve been in insurance or other complementary industries like real estate or financial services.”

Floods are among the most heartrending impacts of a major storm, but a home doesn’t have to endure a cataclysm to suffer serious damage. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reports that just an inch of flooding — barely the depth of a puddle — can cost around $26,000 for a one-story, 2,500 square-foot property. If the water levels go up to a wading depth of four feet, then costs can accelerate to more than $100,000. 

Coverage From Rising Waters
 

While homeowner and renter policies can cover your home if the plumbing bursts while you’re at work, you’ll need flood insurance for assistance after nature-borne flooding. As we discussed in the past, this is different from the windstorm insurance that addresses the hammering your home can take from hurricane and tornado gusts. If you live on the coastline or in another high-risk area, you may have been required to carry flood coverage if you have a government-backed mortgage. 

Still, 40% of National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) flood insurance claims between 2014 and 2018 came from properties that were not in high-risk areas. While you can check the FEMA website to see if you fall in a high-risk zone, recent years show how extreme weather can penetrate many regions previously considered less vulnerable. 

Sometimes disaster assistance is made available through FEMA, but that only occurs following a Presidential Disaster Declaration, which doesn’t always happen. And those who carry flood insurance may receive substantially more aid. Remember, disaster assistance is not intended to make you whole, just get you back on your feet again. Also, with flood insurance, you don’t have to wait for a declaration of disaster to receive help. 

Obtaining Flood Insurance
 

The NFIP is managed by FEMA and serves more than 23,000 communities across the U.S. You can also purchase flood insurance privately. There are two types of coverage in most policies: 
 

Fortunately, We Insure agents are familiar with the nuances of flood insurance and can help you understand your coverage. Keep in mind that flood insurance rarely covers currencies, personal records, cars, outdoor fixtures or basement-level items. Lost wages and displacement costs may not receive protection either. 

Guard Against the Wake
 

An “it’ll never-happen-to-me” attitude can be unrealistic as rain and hurricane seasons continue to break records year after year. Flood insurance can save you from heartache if you see meteorologists in windbreakers staking out your neighborhood. Call your We Insure office today for a fast, free quote.

If an advisor sat down with you to review your financial plan, what would you expect to talk about? Your 401(k) or investment portfolio? Last year’s tax return? Your FICO score? Credit card balances? The truth is that, when people think about personal finance, they often focus on investing or debt. But a sound financial plan has a variety of components, including: 


In fact, you could argue that insurance is the foundation of any personal finance plan because of the potential of an uninsured loss to destroy a lifetime of savings. A medical bill, a house fire, a flood, an automobile accident or a lawsuit can not only wipe out assets and strain budgets, but also trigger years of legal and other complications that can greatly diminish one’s quality of life.

Fortunately, the right insurance policies can mitigate many of life’s risks. However, you need to sit down with a knowledgeable insurance agent and discuss your particular situation. A carefully researched policy is better than a one-size-fits-all solution, and an agent who doesn’t know much about you probably shouldn’t sell you a policy to begin with.

Why Specifics Matter

Here are a few examples of how the details of someone’s life can impact their insurance needs from a financial planning perspective. 

High net worth. If you have a lot of assets or a high-profile position, you may have an increased litigation risk. A personal umbrella policy may provide you important additional protection.

Health risks. If this is the case, then a high-quality health insurance plan is obviously important. But you may also want to consider long-term care insurance, disability insurance and sufficient life insurance to insulate your family from the financial impact of your condition.

Valuables. Art, antiques, guns, fine wines and collectibles are some items for which typical homeowners policies can exclude or limit coverage. Talk to your insurance agent about any exclusions to your policy and additional riders your prized possessions might require should they suffer damage or theft.

High-risk occupation or hobby. If you work in a dangerous job or have a passion for skydiving, make sure you have ample disability coverage in event of an accident or injury — and sufficient life insurance to protect your loved ones.

Special occupational needs. If your business operations require specialized transportable equipment or property, you may need inland marine insurance. The need for this type of insurance is common in a number of industries, including construction, renewable energy, transportation/logistics, scientific and technical research, communication technology, medical diagnosis and fine art museums and galleries. 

Your knowledgeable We Insure agent can assemble the right mix of policies and coverage to suit your individual needs. Call your local agent for a complimentary insurance consultation. It’s fast, free and critically important to your financial future, so don’t delay.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 24, 2021— CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty has entered into a partnership with We Insure Inc. to provide insurance services to the fourth largest CENTURY 21 franchise in the U.S., with 13 offices and more than 600 agents in the Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. markets. We Insure is an innovative, independent insurance solution with access to more than 150 markets and full back-end support through a national insurance franchise opportunity.

 

The owners of We Insure Peace of Mind, Eddie Berenbaum, Nick Pasquini and Shawn Milletary, founded Redwood Realty in 2002. The partners also own a portion of Day 1 Mortgage and Highland Title + Escrow. The high-performing brokerage has seen how adding ancillary companies like mortgage and title have increased client satisfaction and agent efficiency. Offering insurance further strengthens their agents’ ability to best serve their clients.

 

Agent-in-Charge Simon England has over a decade of experience in the insurance industry and specializes in all personal lines that families depend on as well as meeting the commercial insurance needs of business owners. His passion lies in ensuring that customers have the very best insurance coverage based on their unique needs. England reiterates, “I am thrilled to deliver my industry knowledge and service-orientated mindset to two leading companies.”  Simon appreciates the vast choice of carriers that We Insure Peace of Mind offers, allowing clients to choose their coverage that best suits their needs at the best price.

 

“We believe We Insure gives us the best insurance product to present to our customers,” says Berenbaum. “In real estate, the client experience hinges on the performance of crucial vendors, including insurance companies. Partnering with We Insure gives us peace of mind that the client service given will be commensurate to the service they’ve come to expect from CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty.”

 

“Adding insurance gives us greater confidence in the entire transaction,” Berenbaum continues. “If the insurance coverage doesn’t match the buyer’s needs, it’s going to be harder to retain a long-term happy client, which can leave a black mark on the entire transaction. By offering high-quality insurance products that we can present to our clients, it ensures a smooth and consistent process from the onset of the home search to close.”

 

“We Insure’s turnkey approach is an ideal integration of insurance services into a highly successful real estate agency like CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “Our support services keep the business of underwriting and operations simple, so the company can stay focused on sales.”

If you’re a military veteran, service to others is in your blood. After their careers, some vets choose to join police departments or become first responders. But there are other ways to serve your community, including by helping your neighbors protect the things they care about most — their homes, families and businesses — from financial devastation.

 

For consumers, insurance can be confusing. As a We Insure franchise owner, you can guide them in finding cost-effective homeowners, auto, life, commercial liability and other coverage that will be there for them when things go wrong. And the values and skills you developed in the military will help you succeed as part of the We Insure team.

 

Dedication to Service. The spirit of service means putting others ahead of self. For We Insure agents, getting the biggest sales commission isn’t the goal — providing the best coverage for each of your clients is. That can mean going the extra mile by making an additional phone call to track down an unusual policy for someone.

 

Team Effort. Joining We Insure is more than a commercial arrangement; you’re joining a growing organization with a clear mission and the backup you need to deliver premium service. We Insure has extensive back-office support including claims processing, an agent support hotline and a dedicated customer retention team. You can rely on We Insure to help the people who rely on you.

 

Leadership and Communication. When you own a We Insure agency you’re called on to offer leadership to your agents and your clients. Effective communication is essential in guiding customers to the right coverage, providing claims assistance and marketing your services within your community. And you’ll draw upon your ability to organize information and people to get the job done each and every day.

 

Character Counts. As a We Insure agent, your reputation is your strongest calling card. Always doing the right thing, even when no one is looking, will propel your business. People notice when you go above and beyond, and they tell their friends and family. There are many opportunities in life to “just get by,” but that’s not you. Vigilance, respect for others, discipline and the willingness to do the work are part of your regular routine.

 

Attention to Detail. In the military, the ability to focus on small but critical details is a key determinant for success. When a client trusts you to protect their family with the right life insurance product, or to make sure their home is protected, details matter as well. A lot. Exclusions, limits and riders that modify coverage matter. At We Insure, sweating the small stuff makes a big difference.

 

Experience Matters. No matter what rank you achieved, you were in basic once. Along the way, you found out that experience really does matter, and that you can learn a lot by just listening. Because We Insure is an organization of independent entrepreneurs, there are many opportunities to learn from the challenges and successes of those who’ve preceded you.

 

WE Value Veterans

We Insure was recognized by independent research firm, Franchise Business Review, as one of only 80 franchises to qualify for its 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans list. And we give military vets $5,000 off their franchise start-up fee. We’ve found that when our franchise owners follow their core values and are true to their mission, we all succeed. We Insure thanks you for your service, and we’re happy to help you explore the possibility of franchise ownership as the next step in your career path.

Adding insurance to your real estate offering as an ancillary business allows you to provide a more complete customer service experience for every real estate transaction and can create a stable, buildable stream of recession-resistant income. Insurance is a natural complement to real estate on either side of the transaction. While you’ll be able to leverage your experience in real estate adding insurance will broaden your scope of services.

 

Leveraging Real Estate Strengths

Beyond the capabilities of any good salesperson — such as in-depth product knowledge, emotional intelligence, organization and communication skills — there are specific strengths that come from a real estate background that will give your insurance agency a competitive advantage in the market.

 

Local networking and advertising expertise. As a real estate professional, you know how important it is to cultivate deep roots in your community. Your understanding of the needs and concerns of local residents will work to your advantage when assisting them with insurance. And there’s probably no real estate agent or broker who has become successful without developing expertise in marketing on the local level.

 

Listening and communication. When helping clients purchase a commercial or residential property, it’s critical to listen carefully to their wants and needs. You must be able to clearly explain and communicate the features and benefits of properties you show them, as well as what actions are needed to complete the transaction. These skills translate well to helping insurance clients choose the right coverage, based on their individual requirements and situation.

 

Affiliating with a strong brand. Brands with a national presence offer great advantages for real estate and insurance professionals alike. The trust and credibility that strong brands confer on franchisees will work in your favor when you partner with We Insure. This is in addition to the consistent investment in brand marketing that We Insure makes year in and year out.

 

Strong teams and back-office support. Both insurance and real estate benefit from coordinated teamwork and full back-end support. The We Insure franchise model and its superior back-end support allows you to focus on building a local presence, strengthening your client relationships and other revenue generating activities.

 

Opportunities for Growth

While you’ll have a lot of skills to lean on with a strong real estate background, there are other areas of professional development that you may need to focus on when you start to service insurance clients. Adding an insurance professional to your office enhances the overall experience for your clients. 

 

After-sales service. You’ll most likely have more frequent and regular contact with your insurance clientele than your real estate customers. You’ll be in touch when policies are up for renewal and whenever you need to assist clients with filing a claim. And of course, more frequent client interaction helps keep your business top of mind when those same customers are looking to make their next real estate purchase.

 

Collaboration vs. negotiation. In real estate, strong negotiating skills are a must. But this is less of a requirement for insurance transactions. Instead, trust building, product-line expertise and good communication will help secure and preserve the client-customer relationship over the long term.

 

Getting personal. Developing a comfort level with more personal client interactions will give you a great head start as you present a range of insurance options to meet clients’ specific needs. And should the issue of a claim arise, you may also be dealing with people who are under stress and not in the positive mood associated with a successful closing. But this also creates an opportunity to be a valuable source of support and information to your clients during challenging times, which in turn can help strengthen your professional relationship. With the support of We Insure, your clients will have a team to support them.

 

Selling the intangible. Property sales and purchases are highly tangible transactions. What are you selling with an insurance policy? The promise of protection from a risk that may be perceived as more or less likely to occur depending on your client. Naturally, this type of sales is fundamentally different than selling a 3/2 with a fenced-in yard that clients have seen for themselves during an open house. Plus, most real estate clients probably have at least some sense of their residential needs. Insurance clients, on the other hand, may not realize they need a certain type of policy. To complete an insurance sale, you may need to sell two things: 1) the idea that the coverage is necessary, and 2) the coverage itself.

 

Just as with real estate, you can develop a very specific niche market for your insurance business or cast a wide net. How you position yourself as a local brand is one of the most important decisions you can make as a We Insure franchise owner. But no matter what type of clientele you cultivate, know that your real estate background will help you to be successful, and that you’ll be providing a more comprehensive and greater level of service for your customers all around.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 1, 2021— We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of We Insure Jersey with offices in Bergen County and Warren County, New Jersey.

Agency Owner Mark Scuderi has been in the real estate industry for nearly 20 years, 17 of which as a RE/MAX owner with three offices in New Jersey. In 2020, he opened a founding franchise for Motto Mortgage also in New Jersey. Scuderi is a CrossFit trainer and CrossFit Gym owner and a retired police officer. Franchise Business Review recently named Scuderi a “Business Rockstar.”

“My goals are to provide the best possible customer service for our clients and to become the go-to insurance agency for real estate and mortgage loan officers in Bergen and Warren Counties,” says Scuderi.

“For years, innovative real estate agencies have grown by adding support services to their sales offering, and now they have a viable way to add insurance through the We Insure franchise business,” adds We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger.

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers and provides agents with access to more than 100 total markets, offering customers the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 18, 2021 RE/MAX Around Atlanta has entered into a partnership with We Insure Inc. to provide insurance services to its clients from its four Atlanta-area locations in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, East Cobb and Alpharetta. We Insure is an innovative, independent insurance solution that gives agents access to more than 100 markets and full back-end support through a national insurance franchise opportunity.

 

Owners of We Insure Atlanta Kristen Jones and Megan Wyatt are broker-owners of RE/MAX Around Atlanta, which has more than 115 real estate agents and continues to grow. Jones’ background in human performance consulting and Wyatt’s financial and economics experience has informed their agency focus on coaching, training and systems.

 

Daniel Wyatt is Agent-in-Charge at We Insure Atlanta. He has a risk management insurance degree from the University of Georgia and nearly 20 years of insurance experience as an independent life and health broker, captive insurance agent and independent broker-owner. 

 

“Our approach to insurance is the same as our real estate philosophy,” Wyatt explains. “We want to be a true personal consultant to our clients — for life. Not everyone has the same needs, and We Insure’s independent model can help us meet all of our clients’ unique requirements.”  

 

Jones adds: “As entrepreneurs, we’re growth focused and always looking to add new businesses. Insurance gives us an ancillary revenue stream outside the regulatory scrutiny of real estate and enables us to provide our agents and customers with valuable coverage.”

It's summertime, and you can't wait to cast off for a weekend adventure on your new boat or personal watercraft. Nothing beats the experience of a brisk wind on your face as you glide through the open water on a hot summer day. But before hitting the launch ramp, you’ll want to make sure that experience isn’t dampened by the threat of an uninsured boating incident, and the harm it may pose to you and others on the water.

 

In 2019, the U.S. Coast Guard reported more than 4000 boat-related accidents, involving over 600 fatalities and nearly 2600 injuries, as well as approximately $55 million in property damage. Make sure you have the right insurance, with provisions that cover all your needs. While some small boats may be covered under your homeowners or renters insurance, other vessels may require a separate policy.

 

Customarily, boat insurance covers theft/damage to the boat, personal property and bodily injury. Reimbursement can be based on actual cash value (depreciated value) or agreed amount value. In addition to protection for physical and liability damage, you should consider the benefits of other types of coverage.

 

On-Water Towing and Labor. Being stuck at sea can quickly become a life-threatening situation. But you can purchase coverage to pay for towing or assistance to repair a disabled vessel on the water.

 

Uninsured Boaters Liability. You’re probably well aware of the risk of having your car damaged by an uninsured motorist. And you should have the same concerns when you’re operating a boat. Uninsured boaters liability pays for injuries sustained by a covered person due to someone else not having insufficient (or any) coverage of their own.

 

Replacement of Personal Effects. Policies can limit coverage for belongings on your boat. But you can secure additional protection for personal items not fixed to the craft.

 

Additional Coverage for Navigational Areas. Depending on the extent of your wanderlust, you may want to consider this form of optional coverage that includes navigational areas such as the Bahamas, Canadian Waterways and U.S. territories.

 

Roadside Assistance for Trailered Boats. Your boat problems may occur before or after you hit the high seas. But you can transport your boat worry free with roadside assistance that can pay for towing, tire-changing assistance and fuel delivery.

 

Fishing Equipment Coverage. If you’re an angler, you want to have ample coverage for all your gear. Don’t let the big one that got away be your favorite fly rod.

 

It’s important to understand any exclusions or limitations to your coverage such as wear and tear, damage caused by insects or animals, mold or equipment not permanently attached to the boat itself. And be sure to ask about any multipolicy, claims-free or other discounts you might be entitled to for completing safety courses or having certain emergency or communications equipment on board.

 

Boat insurance can keep you afloat in troubled waters. We Insure offers boat insurance through our partnership with top-rated carriers and can offer a variety of specialized coverages for sport and fishing boats, sailboats, yachts, cruisers and jet skis. Contact your agent today for a fast and free quote.

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you’ll likely ever make. So it makes sense that you’d want a solid insurance policy in place to protect it. But homeowners insurance isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition, and that’s why policy add-ons can be so important. Educating yourself about how you can expand upon your existing coverage can be key to protecting your home from damage and loss. There are add-ons to consider for a number of perils and situations.

 

Excluded Personal Property. While your existing homeowners policy insures many of your possessions, do you know there may be limits to the amount and types of items it covers? Some common exclusions include jewelry, musical instruments, art, antiques and electronics. But you can ask your agent about purchasing riders to include them.

 

Sinkholes. An often-excluded peril in many homeowners insurance policies, sinkholes can lead to major property damage or even a catastrophic loss. If you live in an area that’s vulnerable to sinkhole activity, you might want to consider an add-on to cover this risk.

 

Floods. Technically, a separate policy as opposed to an add-on, many people wrongly assume their homeowners insurance will cover damage resulting from a flood. Even if you don’t live in a flood-prone area, this coverage can be useful in the event of an infrequent severe weather event that causes a flood.

 

Water Backup. In addition to flood insurance, there’s also coverage available for another type of water hazard. The resulting damage from backed-up drains, sewer lines or sump pump overflows can be costly to repair. Ask your agent about adding water backup coverage to your existing policy for such occurrences.

 

Identity Theft. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Consumer Sentinel Network Data Book, 1.7 million consumers filed fraud reports and an additional 650,572 filed identity theft reports in 2019. This $1.9 billion in total fraud losses represents an increase of more than $293 million from the previous year. Because of this growing trend, a number of insurance policies now offer identity theft as an add-on.

 

Home Improvements. It often doesn’t take long for a house to need upgrades whether to enhance home value, complete repairs or stay current with local building standards. At the end of a lengthy renovation project, the last thing on your mind may be to inform your agent about the work you’ve had done. Whether you’ve expanded your great room, remodeled a kitchen or enclosed your pool, be sure to bring any property improvements to the attention of your insurer.

 

Umbrella Policy. An umbrella policy — or personal liability insurance — can protect homeowners against costly liability claims and lawsuits. Basic homeowners (and auto) insurance policies may not be sufficient to cover lawsuits for incidents such as an accidental injury on your property.

 

Earthquakes. If you live in an at-risk state, purchasing earthquake insurance might be worthwhile. Even if you’re lucky enough to avoid the Big One, this protection can help when a prized possession rattles off the bookshelf. Ask your We Insure agent about coverage options in your area.

 

Animal Liability. If Fido turns fierce and attacks a guest, your regular homeowners policy may not cover the incident or may only cover up to a certain limit. Your financial exposure in these incidents may be higher than you think: Just in the past year, claim costs have increased from $44,760 in 2019 to $50,425 in 2020.

 

Hurricanes. If you live in a hurricane-prone area, check your homeowners insurance policy before storm season for your level of coverage. Windstorm coverage typically isn’t an add-on option, but you may want to shop around as deductibles can be significant and vary from carrier to carrier.

 

Don’t Fall Short on Coverage

Never assume that, just because you have a homeowners policy in place, you’re adequately insured for all types of loss and damage. Gaps in coverage can be costly. Call your local We Insure office and one of our knowledgeable agents will help you determine the right type of policy or add-on to suit your needs.

Video is an effective, engaging and powerful marketing medium. You can use videos on your social channels and YouTube, as well as on your agency website. According to Hubspot, online video consumption has greatly increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, with video marketing usage and spends increasing slightly during 2020. And even more growth is predicted for 2021.

 

If you’re worried you don’t have what it takes to make a video to promote your business, know that not all videos need to be professionally shot. You can create a high-quality video using your smartphone or laptop. Many people feel a bit intimidated about filming themselves, but you won’t have to if you follow these tips.

 

Video topics. Create videos to inform, interest and entertain your clients. You can film short informational spots about various product lines you carry, insurance FAQs, safety tips or instructions for filing claims. You can also make local, brand-building videos that highlight the mission, values and history of your company. Behind-the-scenes and “meet the staff” content can help potential customers feel more familiar and comfortable with your business before they ever set foot in your office. If you have any charitable involvement, use a video to bring attention to a worthy cause. And don’t forget videos to promote contests and giveaways.

 

Shot composition. Place your device at eye level, even if you have to elevate it or use a tripod. If you’re recording on a phone, orient it in landscape mode (horizontally). Sit or stand at the center of the screen. Frame yourself from mid-chest to the top of your head. Situate yourself so that there’s about the width of your hand from the top of your head to the top of the screen.

 

Lighting. Avoid harsh overhead light or strong backlighting (close your curtains or blinds if the window is behind you). Natural light or a shaded lamp in front of you or to the side is best. Make sure you turn off ceiling fans to avoid creating a jarring strobe effect.

 

Frame rate. Record in the highest resolution possible on your device, whether that’s 1080p or 4K. Most smartphones give you the option to set your frame rate at 30 or 60 frames per second (fps). What you see in movies is closer to 30 fps, while 60 fps looks more realistic (some describe this as the “soap opera” effect). Do a test at each setting and see which you prefer.

 

Sound. Find a quiet room without too much echo. Use an external microphone for better recording quality, if possible. A carpeted room with drapes can help deaden the acoustics for higher quality audio. Speak slowly and clearly and put your phone in do not disturb mode.

 

Clothing and background. Pick a pleasing background for your video that’s professional, and not too busy. Make sure nothing too personal is visible behind you, or anything that may be considered controversial. Avoid busy wardrobe patterns and colors that clash with your surroundings. Simple and neutral is best.

 

Scripting. You can write out a complete script word for word or rely on bullets or notes. Ideally, most people will do best with something between reading notes verbatim and winging it for a natural, but professional delivery.

 

Editing your video. Video editing software is preinstalled on most smartphones and computers. Or you can hire a video editor through freelance sites like Upwork or Fiverr. Start your video by showing your logo and business name in static form or as an animation (known as a logo sting). At the end of your video, provide your contact information and a link to your website.

 

Final tip. Do a test of your lighting and sound quality before you attempt to shoot a longer video — and don’t forget to smile

 

Tell Your Story

While the corporate office creates awareness for the brand, only you can tell your franchise’s unique story. And this makes you the best spokesperson to promote your business locally. Video is one of the most effective and engaging ways to do that and it’s easier than ever before, so grab your phone and hit record.

As a We Insure agency owner, you’re well aware of how important marketing is to the success of your insurance business. And digital marketing, in particular, plays a critical role in those efforts. One powerful thing you can do to enhance the effectiveness of your online marketing is to blog.

 

While the corporate office provides content to grow brand awareness, only you understand what topics will be of greatest interest to your local audience. For example, if you’re located on a coast, you can craft articles about second home insurance, boat and yacht policies or windstorm insurance. Or, if you’ve established a niche for your agency, such as business insurance for financial professionals — or coverage for high-net-worth individuals — you can create content that will be of value to your specific clientele.

 

Once you make the decision to blog, you have to figure out how to produce your content, and there are a couple of options. You can outsource writing to a freelancer, but be sure to stay highly involved in the content creation process. After all, you’re the best source of information regarding your business and your customers. Having a writer interview you for your own blog is a great way to make sure the right message is delivered.

 

On the other hand, you may have some in-house talent who’s willing and able to produce your blog. If you end up going in that direction, here are a few tips to help produce the best content possible.

 

Create a content calendar. While you don’t have to come up with blog ideas for the whole year, decide how often you can post and come up with enough topics for the next three months. Repeat that process every quarter. Think about what types of content will be timely given the housing market, summer vacations, holidays, hurricane or storm season, etc.

 

Work ahead. Constantly trying to produce content on deadline can be a losing proposition. Numerous priorities can come up in the course of business that force blogging to the back burner. Aim to bank at least one or two months of content in advance at all times. That way, whatever happens, you won’t miss scheduled posts.

 

Focus on answering client questions. Pay most of your attention to providing value for customers as opposed to hard selling your insurance lines. Answer common questions that customers regularly bring up with agents like: understanding coverage options, determining how much insurance they need, dealing with claims and understanding what life events might require policy changes.

 

Learn about search engine optimization (SEO). One of the main advantages of blogging is that it can help increase your visibility on search engines — specifically THE search engine, Google. Your content could be useful to customers but still not optimized to help you rank well for your search terms. There are specific ways to help achieve this, such as strategically placing keywords in titles, headings and at the beginning of blog posts. Do a little homework to find out what you can do to make your content a more effective SEO tool.

Use a proofreader. No matter how skilled the writer, it’s always important to have a different person check articles for grammatical errors or typos. Nothing will make you look unprofessional more quickly than sloppy copy. Keep in mind that you can often hire a freelance editor or proofreader at a much lower rate than writers generally charge. Think of a freelance editor or proofreader as an affordable insurance policy for your blog writing.

 

Consistency counts. Don’t be overly ambitious with your blogging aspirations. It’s perfectly fine to start slow and build over time. Even one post per month can help you get in the swing of things. Eventually you can increase the frequency to every other week, and even weekly, to improve your results.

 

Blogging can serve as a cornerstone for your marketing efforts. You can create social media teaser posts to promote your blog, use blog posts as the basis for YouTube videos, create infographics from posts and more. You can also boost posts on Facebook or use pay-per-click advertising to lead people back to your blog content. Your blog can become “pillar content” that unites all your marketing efforts. And remember, your blog posts don’t have to be long to be effective. There’s no reason to hesitate; use this powerful tool to help build your brand and boost your bottom line.

This summer’s automotive market contains one of the worst climates for money-conscious consumers in recent memory: low inventory and high demand. According to Cox Automotive, new vehicle inventory was down 25% year over year in April, leading many manufacturers to limit the incentives that coax people to dealerships. Shoppers will also find higher costs in the used market now that consumer searches are double last years rate. A chip shortage is also squeezing new car production and driving up used car values.

 

If you can’t wait out this financial bottleneck, you may look to reduce costs in another necessary expense: your insurance. Fortunately, we know of seven ways to reduce premiums without settling for a bare-minimum plan.

 

1. Safety First: If you avoid wrecks and traffic court, an insurance company can’t ding you for a suspect driving record. But good intentions alone can’t prevent every accident. Fortunately, some carriers offer accident forgiveness for those who maintain good driving practices after running into bad luck.

 

2. Cut the Mileage: The more a car is on the road, the greater the crash risk — and the higher an insurance premium becomes. Track your mileage and report an accurate count of how many miles you travel to and from work. If the COVID-19 pandemic led to fewer days commuting, inform your insurer of this lifestyle change — and you could see a reduction in your next bill.

 

3. Buy a Budget-friendly Car: You may be able to afford that eye-catching Porsche or road-dominating Ford F-150 on paper, but prestige comes at a cost. The mechanics of high performance and cutting-edge accessories are harder to replace — and more tempting to steal — which means that you’re adding to your insurance premium. Before committing to your dream machine, make sure your budget can withstand this additional cost.

 

4. Bundle Your Plans: Car insurance is just one of several policies available to protect your belongings. Many carriers work across multiple product lines — car, home, life, business, boat and so on — and often provide lower premiums to customers who purchase multiple policies. With We Insure, you can get great deals from a wider choice of top-rated carriers, and a reliable advocate and advisor when you need guidance. Speak to your We Insure agent to see if bundling can help you save.

 

5. Tech Protection: You may be familiar with car alarms and rear-mounted cameras, but today’s vehicles offer even more safety features to minimize injury risk. Forward-collision warnings and automatic emergency braking can sense and stop a car before you even react to it, while adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assists can help you maintain road rules if you start to drift during a long drive. Investing in these features may lead to a cheaper premium in the long run — ask your We Insure agent about all available discounts.

 

6. Telematics: Some insurance carriers offer telematics systems that track your driving performance in real time using a small device or mobile app. In return, the insurer offers driving advice and premium reductions, helping you to potentially become a safer driver while saving money — and that could be a win-win for you.

 

7. Shop Around: Due diligence at the outset of the insurance process can pay off, and this goes beyond pasting numbers from different insurance websites into a spreadsheet to see which price is the lowest. Working with your local We Insure representative offers great advantages: competitive pricing from a wide variety of top-rated carriers, fast and free comparative quotes and knowledgeable agents to guide you to the right coverage for your needs.

 

Contact We Insure today to discuss your car insurance needs and learn how you can save without compromising your coverage.

Coastline residents know their meteorologist’s name by heart around this time of year. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration expects the 2021 hurricane season to be another above-average year with up to 20 named storms and three to five major hurricanes. Whether you’re a newcomer or an unfazed veteran, the fact is that more frequent and damaging storms are a risk to your home, possessions and loved ones.

 

(Long) Before the Storm

As you test your flashlights and stock up on Pop-Tarts, take preemptive measures to protect your property. The biggest risk to your home is debris breaking through your windows or roof, which not only allows rain to soak your rugs and ceilings, but also can expose your interior to catastrophic wind damage. Trim the trees on your property regularly to keep loose branches from turning into projectiles, and help prevent your beloved oak from crashing into your abode.

 

Storm shutters shield your home from debris, so inspect them each year. If you don’t have shutters, you may have to secure your windows with plywood, so measure all your windows to see how much you’ll need. Regardless of the materials, get them as soon as possible — you don’t want to run around a packed hardware store when landfall is imminent.

 

Finally, consider bringing in an inspector to check the durability of your roof and garage door. If you live in an older home or a newly established risk zone, you might need to install hurricane straps in your attic to give the framework additional support. Your biggest entryway can become your biggest liability if a gust punches through it, so consider retrofitting your garage door with grits and stronger wheel tracks. A skilled technician is necessary to install these safeguards, so schedule any upgrades during the off-season.

 

As the Hurricane Arrives

Locking your house down can be frustrating for many homeowners, especially if a hurricane is “weaker” or veers away at the last second. But don’t wait until the last second to prepare. Set up your shutters before the wind picks up. Secure all outdoor furniture, flower pots, yard and pool accessories, trash bins and anything else that could become a hazard. Set up sandbags to stop floodwater from seeping under your doors, and park your cars in your garage. Keep extra towels on hand for leaks and consider a sump pump for removing floodwater from a basement.

 

Coverage Against Windstorms and Floods

It’s important to understand how your homeowners or renters insurance will cover hurricane and windstorm damage. Policy requirements and deductibles vary state by state. Many policies cover your residence or living quarters, connected structures like the garage and unattached structures like a shed or swimming pool. Installing shutters, impact windows and a new roof may reduce your premium, and some plans may cover temporary repairs or even spoiled food from a power outage.

 

If you recently made renovations, update your agent to see how these changes will affect your coverage. Note that homeowners insurance will only cover wind damage not water damage from flooding or storm surge. Policyholders in flood-prone neighborhoods should purchase separate flood insurance, and even those who dont live in these areas should consider it, and check their flood zone status periodically for updates.

 

Clear Skies With We Insure

Preparation is everything during hurricane season. And when a storm comes, always prioritize the lives of you and your loved ones over your property after all, this is why you pay for insurance. Contact your local We Insure agent to make sure you have the right coverage before the next hurricane blows through.

If you’re a financial advisor or wealth manager, then you know the importance of a solid insurance foundation to protect your clients’ assets. But have you ever considered what adding insurance to your offering could do to enhance your own bottom line?

 

You can grow your business the same way many real estate firms across the U.S. have by incorporating insurance as an ancillary service line through We Insure. When you do, instead of merely advising clients to secure the appropriate coverage for their financial situation, you’ll be able to do the legwork for them and ensure that they obtain adequate protection with top-rated carriers.

 

As an owner of a We Insure franchise, you can offer a wide variety of insurance products to your customers, including home, auto, life, business, boat, RV and now health insurance. In your role as a trusted financial advisor, you’re in a great position to know when your clients’ personal or business circumstances change in a way that warrants an update to their coverage and guide them accordingly. And with We Insure, you’ll be able to offer them the service, choice and value that they’re looking for. 

 

Many financial professionals have enjoyed great success and expanded their revenue streams by adding insurance to their offering. Homeowners and auto insurance are products that most of your clients require. And by partnering with We Insure, you’ll be able to make highly tailored insurance recommendations to your clients because of the unparalleled access to top-rated carriers that We Insure provides. For example, as a wealth manager for high-net-worth clients, you can offer umbrella policies, specialty auto and yacht insurance, second home policies and more. If you cater to small business owners, you can assist them with commercial property and liability insurance, business owner policies and marine lines.

 

You don’t have to be a licensed agent to add insurance to your practice. You can hire an agent-in-charge, or we can help you navigate the steps toward completing your own certification. By partnering with We Insure, you’ll enjoy all the advantages of a nationally recognized brand. Here are some other ways We Insure will support the success of your business:

The COVID-19 pandemic shuttered businesses from coast to coast and forced many employees into remote work. But now that vaccines are widely available and the country is reopening, many people are rethinking whether they want to return to — or remain at — their old desk jobs. If you’re someone who enjoys greater autonomy and wonders whether entrepreneurship might be right for you, consider the following advantages of partnering with We Insure to launch your own insurance business.

 

1. Recession-resistant income. If you had a pay cut or furlough during the pandemic, you might be interested in participating in an industry that’s widely regarded as recession resistant. Even as many families cut back on eating out and entertainment, they try to avoid cancelling insurance during financially challenging times.

 

2. Prior insurance experience not required. If this is your first foray into insurance, you have two options. You can hire a licensed agent in charge as part of your team or we can help you secure the necessary training and certifications on your own.

 

3. Financial independence. Many people may have struggled to picture a drastic change in their job until the pandemic transformed how and where they work. You can be your own boss as a We Insure franchisee — and the sky is the limit in terms of your growth and earning potential.

 

4. Opportunities to specialize. You don’t have to be a generalist when it comes to selling insurance products. You may choose to focus your practice on servicing high-net-worth individuals and small businesses — or specialize in life and health insurance. As an agency owner, you can capitalize on your previous work experience, professional networks and community connections to grow your book of business.

 

5. Superior back-end support. From marketing to client retention, We Insure provides extensive support to its franchisees to help facilitate their success. We handle policy renewals and answer questions about coverage for your customers. And you’ll receive in-depth training, education and mentorship from within the We Insure organization.

 

6. Turnkey operation. We Insure will provide you with a business website, set up your social media profiles, sync your business directory listings, post content to your social channels and even announce the launch of your business with a professionally written and distributed press release.

 

7. Proven business model. It’s critical to do your homework on the industry and franchise you’re considering when making such an important decision. We Insure is expanding rapidly across the United States with a proven business model that provides competitive pricing and unprecedented access to top-rated carriers starting on day one.

 

If you’ve got an itch to go out on your own and try something new with your career, consider We Insure. We’ll be happy to explain how our franchise process works, answer your questions and speak with you about opportunities available in your area. We think you’ll be impressed by the advantages that partnering with We Insure offers. Contact us today for more information.

It allows me to focus on my top priority, which is to protect my customers and their families so they can sleep soundly at night.”

 

“Here at We Insure, we pride ourselves on offering our agents a plethora of carriers to choose from,” says We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger. “This means that our agency owners can focus on providing their customers with the best options and prioritizing their individual needs instead of worrying if they can find the right coverage.”

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., August 24, 2021 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of We Insure Kauffman Insurance Agency in Wichita, Kan.

 

Licensed in home, auto and life insurance, Agency Owner David Kauffman has been a successful Allstate agency owner for 32 years. Many in Hesston, Kansas, however, may know him best as Mr. Mayor, a role the golf and pickleball enthusiast has served in since 2009.

 

“After being a captive agent for many years, I’m looking forward to having a choice model for my clients,” Kauffman says. “I want to meet a prospect, get to know them and then find the best fit for coverage, value and price. I really liked We Insure because they’re small enough to be personal but large enough to have great people, service and options for customers.”

 

We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger adds: “The We Insure model is a home run with partners who have had their own agencies because they understand the power of the network and back-end support that We Insure provides. It’s a testament to the strength of our business model when agency owners like David join our team.”

When researching and evaluating a franchise opportunity, it’s easy to focus exclusively on factors like start-up costs and back-end support. And while these things are critically important, there’s another intangible quality that deserves an equal amount of your attention and scrutiny — and that’s brand strength.

 

What Is Brand Strength?

 

Brand strength has to do with a brand’s overall favorable impression, trust, credibility and visibility. Apple, Nike and McDonald’s are all examples of strong brands. Sometimes referred to as brand equity, this intangible quality imparts actual, real value to a company.

 

But how can you conceptualize and define something as abstract as brand strength?

 

There are number of questions you can ask such as: Is the brand uniquely positioned so it’s set apart from competitors? Does it have a compelling and unique value proposition to present customers? And does it deliver consistently on its brand promise?

 

Messaging the We Insure Value Proposition

 

We Insure promises customers convenience, superior service, greater choice and exceptional value — combining the best of both worlds from captive agencies and independent brokerages. Offering a full spectrum of insurance products from home, auto, business, boat, RV — and now even encompassing health and life Insurance — We Insure is a one-stop shop for savvy insurance consumers.

 

Our messaging has been professionally crafted and is communicated clearly and consistently in blogs, social media and press releases across all digital franchise properties — on the main website and in all our corporate communications.

 

When Looks Count — Visual Branding

 

There’s also a significant visual component to brand strength. And that relates to everything from logo and website design to print materials including brochures and signage. We Insure has made significant investments in developing its brand messaging and visual identity. And the result has helped us create a clear, confident and memorable impression to customers all across the U.S. That’s the Power of WE. 

 

Our distinctive logo is deceptively simple and memorable. Yet beneath that simplicity lies rich and persuasive associations. The shield represents strength and protection; our red, white and blue colors convey trusted American values; and our very name expresses a sense of alliance and partnership. We think it doesn’t get much better than that when it comes to compelling branding.

 

Equity From Day One

 

When you partner with We Insure, you’ll benefit from the brand equity we’ve already built starting on day one. When customers encounter your business for the first time — whether it’s online, at your agency or through your written materials — they’ll have a favorable impression from the start. And that positive impression will be seamlessly integrated throughout their customer journey.

 

We Insure’s brand strength will give you a competitive advantage and a head start out of the gate. The proof is in our astounding growth, with now more than 160 retail locations across the U.S. In 2020, the company expanded into14 states and grew its franchise agency footprint by 55%. We recently surpassed a milestone of 250,000 insured customers, and so far doubled the franchise footprint in 26 states. And independent research firm Franchise Business Review recognized We Insure as one of the Top 50 Best Franchises to Buy in 2021 based on franchisee satisfaction rankings. 

 

Join a winning team and use your local expertise to build your business with a strong brand. For more information about franchise opportunities in your area, visit weinsurefranchise.com or contact us to start a discussion.

Pay-per-click advertising (PPC) and search engine optimization (SEO) are like two sides of a coin. A steady stream of helpful, well-written content that’s optimized for the search terms you want your business to rank for can help your company’s online visibility a lot. But achieving first-page Google rankings can take time. Luckily, there’s a way to gain traction fast on Google, and that’s with PPC. Although you can also run paid-search campaigns on social platforms like Facebook, for now we’ll focus on Google’s PPC program, Google Ads (previously called Google AdWords).

 

When you go to a Google search results page, you’ll see two types of results. The ones at the top that say “Ad” are the PPC search results. Below those are the organic results — those are search results generated by SEO. Businesses pay to display their ads for certain online queries. When ads are served in this manner, that’s called an impression. And online advertisers also pay each time a user clicks on their ad.

 

Because the results are almost immediate, PPC is a great way to jump-start traffic to a new website, build brand awareness and promote seasonal campaigns. For example, you could use PPC to drive traffic during hurricane season to promote flood insurance. But what you really want when it comes to clicks is quality over quantity. And in the PPC game, that means you want clicks from people with higher intent to purchase, sign up for your mailing list or perform whatever conversion you’re looking for.

 

To start, you must first sign up for a Google Ads account, establish a budget and create your ads. You’ll also need to decide where all those clicks you’re buying will go —these will be your landing pages. You generally don’t want to land potential customers on your home page unless the goal of your campaign is simply to build brand awareness.

 

Before you launch your campaign, do your homework on the keywords or keyword phrases you want your ads to display for. Often, very high-level or general keywords (“insurance” for example) will have a lot a search volume and greater competition, making them much more expensive. These are often called head terms or trophy terms. And while it may sound like those are the keywords you really want to target, you may want to think again.

 

Consider the likely difference between someone who searches for “insurance” or even “homeowners insurance” versus “second home insurance in Miami Beach.” Which person do you think has greater intent to purchase or is further along the sales funnel? These more-specific search terms, called long-tail search terms, often better target those closer to making a purchase. That said, there’s also value in using PPC to cast a wider net to build the brand awareness that can translate into greater credibility and trust down the road.

 

When implementing a PPC campaign, it’s critical to track your results every step of the way. For example, if you’re getting lots of clicks but no leads, you may have ineffective landing pages. It’s very important to constantly run comparisons on the different ads you create (called split testing or A/B testing), to see which ads or landing pages work best.

 

Finally, never just “set and forget” your PPC campaign. Google adjusts its search algorithms regularly, which means the same ad that’s worked well before may be less effective now and in need of an update. But if you stay on top of your campaigns, take a methodical approach and track consistently, PPC can be a highly effective tool to drive visitors to your website and boost your book of business.

When you start your own small business, you take on significant risks. Hopefully, your business is a great success, and these considerations remain theoretical. Regardless, it’s important to make sure you have appropriate insurance coverage in place should your company ever hit a bump in the road. Here are some common risks that many businesses face and the types of policies available to mitigate them.

 

Professional and general liability insurance. Business risks go beyond lost or damaged property. Customers may sue your company for medical expenses if they hurt themselves on your premises. You may also face a lawsuit for libel or slander, errors, omissions, malpractice or negligence. But robust general and professional liability insurance policies can help protect you.

 

Commercial property insurance. Commercial properties can suffer losses just as primary residences can. Your building, office, warehouse or commercial space — and its contents — are at risk of theft or damage from smoke, fire, water, windstorms, vandalism and other perils. This is why it’s important to maintain commercial property insurance and fully understand your coverage.

 

Home-based businesses. Maybe your place of business is right in your own home. In this case, you likely have equipment or other supplies that could be damaged or stolen. Fortunately, you can secure home-based business insurance to cover these assets as well as liability for third-party injuries even when you operate from your home.

 

Business owner’s policy. A business owner’s policy is a convenient insurance package that combines many typical coverage options into one bundle. They can simplify the insurance-buying process and often save you money. Talk to your local We Insure agent to see if a business owner’s policy might be right for you.

 

Inland marine. Sometimes, property doesn’t suffer damage at your place of business but while in transit to another location. This is especially true if your company uses specialized tools or equipment that goes from one jobsite to the next. If this describes your business, then you may require inland marine coverage.

 

Business interruption. The pandemic has shown everyone how life — and business — can be suddenly and dramatically interrupted. Did you know that you can obtain insurance to keep your operations going as usual and protect your stream of income? Business interruption insurance can pay rent expenses and employee salaries during covered events. Note that you should not assume a pandemic is a covered event — always check your policy documents to verify coverage.

 

Product liability insurance. This coverage is for companies that manufacture, wholesale, distribute and sell products. Product liability insurance can protect your business against financial loss as a result of a defective product that causes injury or bodily harm.

 

Commercial auto. Whether you have a single box van or an entire fleet, you can end up in a situation where your business vehicles become damaged, disabled or totaled. And just like for your personal ride, you can obtain commercial auto insurance to protect you. And also just like for your own vehicle, you want to make sure that your policy comes from a top-rated carrier that provides adequate coverage. We Insure can help you keep your business rolling.

 

We Insure offers a full range of insurance products for many business needs — at competitive prices. Call your local We Insure agent today to find out more about insurance for your business.

Some factors that affect your car insurance bill are things you just have to deal with. An insurer will always consider a new driver to be at higher risk for accidents, while city commuting means more vehicles and more chances for fender benders. You do, however, have some means of controlling your costs besides buying a cheaper plan that may not help you in a pinch. Consider some of the following options.

 

Maintain a Good Driving Record. Do what you learned in your high-school driving class. Don’t speed. Don’t drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Don’t take yellow traffic lights or roadwork signs as suggestions. Nobody is perfect, but a ticket can hurt you beyond the trip to traffic court: Car insurance rates can rise after a speeding ticket by as much as 30% in some states, and this penalty can last for years. In addition, the pandemic was an opportunity for many drivers to get some insurance relief by reporting their reduced driving itinerary. If your company is still allowing remote work some or all of the time, make sure to let your insurer know.

 

Downscale Your Vehicle. Cars often carry hidden costs beyond your monthly payment, and insurance can be one of them. New and luxury cars can increase your premiums due to higher repair costs. Also, when you use your ride as a status symbol, know that youre also advertising to thieves. Buying an affordable, modest vehicle can reduce payments, but this isnt a foolproof solution either. Models like the 2004 Ford F-150 and 2017 Toyota Camry can be more expensive to insure than their contemporaries because their universal interior parts make them a treasure trove for criminals. Do your homework before committing to a new or used car.

 

Obtain Safety Basics. Modern vehicles possess innovative safety technology like adaptive cruise control, collision avoidance systems and lane-change warning systems. But only a few insurers will consider these features when determining your premium, as it can take time to establish whether they reduce accident risk. Its more important to ensure that your car has proven safety features: air bags, anti-lock brakes, daytime front headlights and electronic stability control. Most of these features are now standard but some may be missing in used cars.

 

Reduce the Need for Claims. Everyone needs car insurance but dreads the possibility of using it. Even leaving a car in a driveway most of the time places it at risk for theft. Keep your car locked whenever youre away from it, and keep it stored in a garage when youre at home or a well-lit area when youre away.

 

Track Your Credit Score. Just like a car dealership, insurance companies can run a credit report before entrusting you with a policy. A better score can lower your premium, so it’s important to protect your credit. Always pay your bills on time and use an auto-payment method to avoid missing due dates. At least once a year, get your credit report from the three major bureaus Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. If you see any unauthorized account openings or errors hurting your score, report them.

 

Do Your Homework. Finding the best coverage means more than plugging a few numbers into a website. You want a policy that will help you when you need it, and some insurers offer accident forgiveness and tracking technology (telematics) that can lower your bill in the long run. With independent insurance specialists and access to many top-rated carriers, your local We Insure office can help you research the right plan options for you.

You can now shop for your health insurance coverage from the same source you trust for your homeowners, auto and business policies. We Insure provides major medical, alternative health insurance and supplemental coverage, as well as health and medical discount plans.

 

Major Medical. Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans are guaranteed issue, which means insurers cant turn you down or charge you more due to a preexisting condition (although other factors can still increase your premium). The law mandates all ACA plans to cover the 10 essential health benefits, including: hospitalization, emergency services, ambulatory care, prescription drugs, maternity care, rehab services and devices, mental health/addiction, lab work, preventive services and pediatric care.

 

Supplemental Health Insurance. ACA plans can come with high deductibles for care. But supplemental policies are available to offset some of the out-of-pocket costs that can come in the event of a covered accident or critical illness, such as cancer or a heart attack.

 

Depending on your policys deductible, you could be responsible for some hospitalization costs before your insurance pays a portion of the charges. Thats where supplemental hospital indemnity insurance can help. Supplemental policies can also provide dental coverage, which is not one of the ACAs 10 essential health benefits if youre over 17.

 

Health and Medical Discount Plans. While not insurance, discount plans can also help you save money on health care costs. These plans can reduce the cost of prescription drugs, telemedicine and specialists like dietitians, physical therapists and podiatrists. They can offer savings on home-use medical supplies as well as integrative and alternative health care that most traditional plans dont cover.

 

Another valuable plan benefit is access to expert administration, referral and negotiation services to help you navigate the complicated world of health care. With this service, you can access professionals who are able to negotiate medical bills, review diagnoses and treatment plans and coordinate administrative issues involving a range of health-related services. No one can turn you down for a health and medical discount plan.

 

Short-term Medical (STM). This is temporary insurance coverage for those between health plans and can be issued for shorter time frames. These plans have more limited coverage than major medical, but tend to also have lower premiums.

 

STM plans may cover: hospital room and board, ER anesthesiology and surgical care, diagnostic services such as X-rays and laboratory tests, doctor visits, ambulance transportation and surgical services. STM policies are highly customizable, so their coverage and costs may vary significantly.

 

Medicare Options. Because theres no one-size-fits-all Medicare plan, and coverage options can vary depending on where you live, navigating the landscape of this federal health insurance program can be daunting. But We Insure is here to help you — or your parents. We can help check your eligibility, explore your coverage options and provide you with a personalized recommendation.

 

If youre an independent contractor, no longer covered under an employer-sponsored health care plan, aged out of your parents’ insurance plan or retired and not yet eligible for Medicare, We Insure has health insurance options for you. Contact us today.

Halloween is full of ghosts and ghouls, but the last thing you want is a haunted house for real. While you’re preparing for a parade of make-believe monsters to arrive on your doorstep, don’t let your home become the next nightmare on Elm Street — stay safe and exorcise these demonic dangers before the witching hour arrives!

 

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Tripping or falling is no treat — in fact one out of five falls causes serious injury! Prevent accidents outside by sweeping your walkways, repairing loose or crumbling stairs and installing sturdy handrails on your porch and steps. Pressure-wash moldy paths before they create slimy, slippery conditions and ensure walkways are well-lit from curb to doorstep. Motion-detection lighting adds both safety and security to keep wandering ghosts at bay.

 

Indoors, falls from unsecured carpets can leave you bandaged up like The Mummy — use nonskid pads and avoid running lamp or extension cords beneath area rugs. Keep hallways free of clutter and watch for pets before you go down the stairs. Your black cat doesn’t want to bring you bad luck!

 

Bubble, Bubble Toil and Trouble

Be careful of your cauldron bubbling over. According to the Red Cross, most home fires start when cooking in the kitchen. Keep kitchen towels away from the stove and a fully charged fire extinguisher on hand — remember to never put water on a grease fire.

 

Fiery Frights

Spooky candles and jack-o’-lanterns can brighten a dark and stormy night, but they can also become the source of a home fire. Keep live flames in secure locations well away from children and pets. Never leave lit candles unattended. That lamp that switches off on its own might not be a sign from beyond — it could be due to faulty or failing home wiring. Check cords, plugs and switches regularly, and don’t overload power strips or outlets. Chimneys may invoke images of Santa Claus, but neglecting this structure now can create a real nightmare before Christmas. Blockages can lead to fire, so inspect and clean your chimney annually and keep a fire extinguisher nearby. And get in the habit of cleaning the lint trap of your dryer after every use because dryers are responsible for 9 out of 10 appliance fires.

 

Hocus Pocus

All Hallows Eve is scary enough without worrying about hidden dangers lurking in your house. Make sure you have adequate homeowners insurance coverage in place for an added layer of protection against life’s real frights. Contact your local We Insure agent today for a fast and free quote.

 

And now that you’ve banished your Halloween home hazards, get into a spooky spirit with one of these haunted house movies:

 

1.     Poltergeist

2.     The Haunting

3.     Beetlejuice

4.     The Others

5.     The Woman in Black

6.     The Amityville Horror

7.     Crimson Peak

8.     Rebecca (1940)

9.     Casper

10.  The Haunted Mansion

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., October 1, 2021 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of We Insure John Douglas Insurance in Panama City, Fla.

 

The new agency has much to offer in the way of experience and a long track record of community involvement. All graduates of Florida State University, Doug, Zach and Ethan Messer have a foundation built on 40 years in the insurance industry. They specialize in life and health insurance, financial services, retirement planning and asset management.

 

The group views We Insure as the perfect match when it comes to supporting their community to the best of their ability. “We Insure has an excellent roster of carriers and modern technology that makes servicing clients’ needs highly efficient,” says Zach Messer, Agent in Charge. “To do what’s right for clients you need the kind of support that We Insure provides.”

 

We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger adds: “Perhaps just as important as offering full support in operations, technology and marketing, we’ve worked to maintain our culture as we grow. It’s important that our franchise partners feel like they’re a part of the team.”

 

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and agents have access to more than 150 total markets, to provide customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates. The company has deeply invested in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to provide agents with seamless servicing so they can focus on developing customer relationships.

 

We Insure was recently identified by independent research firm Franchise Business Review (FBR) as one of the Top 100 Low-cost Franchises in 2020 and as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2021. FBR’s recognition was based on franchisee satisfaction rankings.

Aside from your blog, email is the only marketing platform you truly own. It can help boost your brand awareness, build relationships with prospects and customers, promote your business — and generate and nurture leads. It also helps that it’s low cost, easy to implement and can be 40 times more effective at getting new customers than Facebook and Twitter combined.

 

The relationship between an insurance client and their agent is more personal than many other types of customer relationships. And email is a great tool for cultivating and strengthening those connections over time. If you’re looking to maximize your marketing efforts, then grab more attention from your pool of the 3.8 billion email users around the world with these tips.

 

Segment Your List

The most effective emails are highly relevant to their audience. Separate your email list into existing clients and prospects, and cater your messaging specifically to those two groups. For existing customers, provide auto or home safety tips — or answer common questions about how deductibles work. For prospective clients, you might offer a fast and free competitive quote on their existing coverage.

 

Now Segment Some More

But don’t stop there. Craft different messaging to target customers for each type of policy you sell (business, boat, RV, etc.). And develop a campaign to encourage existing clients to increase and expand their coverage — because it’s often easier to grow existing relationships than cultivate new business. Remember, no matter how you segment your emails, never spam. Include an unsubscribe link in each email to show that your business cares about their preferences — and complies with CAN-SPAM requirements. 

 

 

Add Value With Well-written Content

Hard selling is an immediate turnoff for many people. Keep your messaging short and relevant to your audience, and make sure it adds value to their lives. For example, include tips on how to make your home safer, how to save money on premiums or what flood insurance does (and doesn’t) cover. If you have the subject matter knowledge but not the time or ability to craft excellent copy, hire a pro to write or edit your emails and newsletter to avoid embarrassing typos that can undermine your credibility.

 

Better Each Time

The only way to see if your email marketing is working is to track and test. One of the best ways to do this is with split testing (also called A/B testing). This is the process of comparing the results from two different versions of an email that are the same except for one small variation. For example, split test two different subject lines to see which has a higher open rate — or two different calls to action and their subsequent conversion rates. You’d be surprised how much difference just a small wording tweak can make in your results. By split testing regularly, your campaigns can gradually become more and more effective each time.

 

Dont Overdo It

An email from your agency should be a welcome communication, not an annoying intrusion. Let your clients know upfront what they can expect in terms of the frequency of your communications. Or better yet, allow them to choose how often they want to be contacted and about what types of topics. If you have strong email offers, well-written content and the trust of your clients, then there’s no need to badger them. Your clients are not constantly shopping for insurance. Keep in touch just frequently enough with a variety of high-quality, helpful content to remind them that they’re important to you — and that you’re available should they need assistance or additional coverage.

 

Email marketing is a big subject and there’s lots more to say, so we’ll be continuing our discussion next month. Until then, be sure to make the most of your clients’ inbox!

PEAK6 InsurTech and We Insure to expand tech-enabled agency model to deliver specialty property and casualty insurance solutions nationwide

 

CHICAGO, IL., October 11, 2021 – PEAK6 today announced that its insurance operations subsidiary, PEAK6 InsurTech, has signed an agreement to acquire We Insure , a rapidly growing independent insurance franchise company. Upon closing, the acquisition will build on PEAK6’s acquisition of National Flood Services in 2018 and pending acquisition of Team Focus to position PEAK6 InsurTech as one of the nation’s leading providers of property and casualty insurance products, now with a growing distribution network of franchises across the United States.

 

“Rooted in a shared understanding that agents power the insurance ecosystem, PEAK6 InsurTech and We Insure will be positioned to become an unstoppable force in the insurance industry,” said Deb Franklin, Co-CEO of PEAK6 InsurTech.  “By combining our demonstrated expertise in insurance, technology and innovation with We Insure’s nationwide distribution network, we’re poised to deliver better value to customers as we rapidly scale our locations across the country.”

 

We Insure was established in 2009 and has evolved into one of the most trusted insurance franchise offerings in North America.  After growing over 55% in 2020 and doubling its franchise footprint in 2021, the business model is attracting entrepreneurs with its vast carrier access, full customer service team, and turn-key support system.  We Insure currently achieves a quarter billion in premiums through its more than 200 agencies in 26 states.

 

"This new relationship with PEAK6 will propel our ongoing strategy to offer outstanding support and growth opportunities for our franchisees.  The massive distribution channel through our franchisees, combined with the capacity of its own products with MacNeill Group and Capacity Insurance (subsidiary of Team Focus) is what this industry really needs.  We are excited to combine forces with PEAK6 InsurTech," said Philip Visali, Founder and CEO of We Insure.  "Upon closing, our franchise owners will be able to leverage PEAK6 InsurTech’s advanced technology, niche carrier access and back-end services as We Insure further accelerates growth and significantly expands its footprint nationwide.”

 

PEAK6 InsurTech will further strengthen We Insure’s carrier access, IT infrastructure, and agency support model, so agents can focus solely on growing and retaining customer relationships across personal and commercial lines. By combining the power of unmatched carrier access with innovative back-end technology, PEAK6 InsurTech and We Insure will deliver better value to customers, insurance company partners, and franchise owners.

We Insure now proudly offers health care insurance through its We Insure Health division, a part of its vision for creating insurance customers for life. The company rolled out its new division and coverage options to We Insure’s more than 100,000 clients and 150 agencies late last year.

 

Americans will continue to need and seek out health care alternatives, whether they’re part of the gig economy, aging out of their parents’ insurance plan, unemployed or working for an organization that doesn’t offer medical benefits. And research confirms robust market demand. In the February 2021 IBIS report, health and medical insurance revenue comprised nearly 14% of the total insurance and brokerage industry revenue of $161 billion. Health and medical insurance was the third highest-grossing product segment behind commercial P&C and personal P&C insurance lines.

 

Agencies play a big role in distributing health insurance policies, according to the IBIS report, and any increases in health insurance membership will be advantageous for agents and brokers alike. For agencies, adding health care insurance to your offering can be an additional source of revenue and enable you to expand your level of service to clients. Commercial line demand has been negatively impacted during the pandemic as the number of businesses declined. Health care policies can also help agencies make up that lost revenue.

 

We Insure health care insurance offerings include short-term medical, hospital, accident and critical illness, vision and hearing, dental and gap health insurance, as well as health discount programs. One-year and short-term options are available at any point in the year — not just at the traditional November open enrollment.

 

We Insure agents do not need a life and health license to offer health and medical insurance to their clients. Through a partnership with one of the largest health care companies in the U.S., We Insure franchisees work on a referral agreement.

 

Agents have the enviable position of trusted risk advisor to their clients, but many are not fully serving their insurance needs in this vitally important area, which is a missed opportunity in client service and retention. Adding health and medical insurance services to your agency can help create customers for life.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., October 21, 2021 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of We Insure Banyan Global Insurance in Boca Raton, Fla.

 

Specializing in insurance planning and financial strategies, Agency Owner Alexander Benedict believes strongly in a full-service approach that ensures clients are adequately protected when it comes to any uncertainties they may encounter.

 

“We like the full-scale approach that We Insure offers to their franchise partners,” Benedict says. “We wanted to be part of a team that we could grow with on a national scale, and we value the robust infrastructure We Insure provides.”

 

We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger says, “We Insure is an attractive independent insurance model because we offer full support in operations, technology and marketing, which allows franchise partners to focus on providing superior service to their customers and growing those relationships.” And, Pflueger adds, “It’s important that our partners feel like they’re a part of our extended team.”

 

We Insure is experiencing high demand from entrepreneurs for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The Florida-based company was created by a former captive agent with a mission to tackle the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, CEO of We Insure, accomplished this by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. Ten years later, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and agents have access to more than 150 total markets, to provide customers with the ultimate experience of choice and lower rates.

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., October 26, 2021 — We Insure, Inc., an independent insurance franchise company, announced today the opening of We Insure Citrus in Lecanto, Fla.

 

Specializing in residential, auto and commercial lines, Agency Owners Kevin and Karen Cunningham, along with Agent in Charge Craig Fass’, goal is to provide RE/MAX Realty One’s Associates and Citrus County real estate customers, professional insurance guidance from talented, skilled and caring insurance agents. By doing so they look to offer a more full-service or one stop experience to their existing RE/MAX real estate clients.

 

“We were drawn to the We Insure model because of its similarities to our existing RE/MAX franchise,” says Cunningham. “Both are focused on providing the highest level of customer satisfaction. Adding insurance to our menu of services allows us to offer clients a choice of affordable coverage from over 100 top-rated Insurance Carriers.” 

 

We Insure Chief Development Officer Chris Pflueger adds: “For years, forward-thinking real estate agencies have grown by adding ancillary services to their sales offering. Because of the power of our network and the back-end support that We Insure offers, franchise partners can focus on providing cost savings and superior service to their agents, current clients, and community.”

For Immediate Release: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., October 27, 2021 — We Insure Inc., an independent insurance franchise company listed in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking for 2021, announced today the opening of We Insure River Cities in Bettendorf, Iowa.

 

The new agency is part of We Insure’s rapid expansion into the insurance brokers and agencies industry — a sector whose annual revenue is expected to increase to more than $170 billion by 2025, according to a 2021 IBISWorld report. We Insure River Cities is the final step in Agency Owner Katie Sommers’ goal to provide Quad Cities home buyers a one-stop shop, combining real estate, mortgage lending and insurance options. 

 

“I chose We Insure after researching my choices based on the desire to add insurance so that we could provide customers a ‘one-stop’ home shopping experience,” says Sommers. “By offering this additional service, we’re able to continue helping clients even after the sale closes.”

 

The move to team up with We Insure is a logical next step. No stranger to the Quad Cities real estate market, Sommers began her career 20 years ago at RE/MAX River Cities, quickly becoming a top producer and earning many awards along the way. In June 2015, Sommers became sole owner of the company where her career began.

 

“For years,” says Chris Pflueger, We Insure Chief Development Officer, “innovative real estate agencies have grown by adding support services to their sales offering, and now they have a viable way to easily add insurance through We Insure. We’re happy to have Katie and her team on board.”

 

We Insure is undergoing a rapid national expansion for its innovative franchise insurance offering. The company, based in Jacksonville, Fla., was the brainchild of a former captive agent with a mission to take on the insurance industry’s biggest challenges. Philip Visali, We Insure CEO, realized his vision by bringing together the best in choice from independent agencies along with the superior back-end support of captive models. With 10 years of success behind them, We Insure has partnerships with the top carriers, and agents have access to more than 100 total markets, to provide customers with the ultimate experience of choice, service and value. The company has made significant investments in state-of-the-art support systems and IT infrastructure to offer agents seamless servicing and a turnkey experience, allowing them to focus on cultivating customer relationships and growing their book of business.

Housing prices, which surged sharply in 2020 and 2021, show no sign of falling back. Affordability is a problem for many buyers, but there are some ways to shave down that big monthly payment.

 

The root of the problem, according to a recent analysis by the National Association of Realtors, is an acute shortage of homes for sale. Contractors just aren’t building enough new housing units to meet all the demand. And, as you may recall from your high-school economics class, when demand exceeds supply, prices often rise.

 

Depending on where you live, last year’s price hikes ranged from, “Wow, that’s a lot,” to an eye-popping, “Who can afford that?” Housing analyst Redfin reported that, in Seattle more than 4,658 homes sold for at least $100,000 more than their listing price in the first six months of 2021 compared to just 378 homes a year prior.

 

Trying to fit a larger mortgage into your budget can be tough, but there’s one place where you can save. Remember that your monthly payment isn’t all mortgage it’s PITI (Payment, Insurance, Taxes and Interest). You can’t do much to lower the payment, but buying in a district with lower property taxes can help, and smart shopping can help you lower your interest charges and home insurance costs.

 

While there are many ways to lower your insurance expenses, some aren’t very desirable. Here are some dos and don’ts when it comes to your homeowners policy — and one “maybe.”

 

DON’T

·      Don’t settle for less coverage than you need. Consider the house itself along with the contents and any planned upgrades. If you’re buying new furniture, that needs consideration too.

·      Don’t choose a poorly rated insurer. Insurer ratings typically reflect the assets the carrier has to settle claims. But there are other criteria to consider, such as how often they deny claims and how quickly they pay. Your local We Insure agent can guide you toward top-rated insurers.

·      Don’t confuse market value with insured value. The market value of your home is what it would sell for. If your house is destroyed, what you need from your insurer is enough to rebuild, which may be more OR less than the market value.

·      Don’t set it and forget it. Review your policy each year. Or call your local We Insure agent for a complimentary homeowners insurance review.

·      Don’t fail to consider flood insurance. Floods cause an estimated $6 billion in damage in the U.S. each year. Evaluate your flood risk and insure appropriately.

 

MAYBE

·      You could consider raising your deductible. A higher deductible will usually decrease your premium, but be sure you can afford to pay it in the event of a claim.

 

DO

·      Do bundle coverage. Consolidating home, auto, life and other insurance coverage with one carrier can help you save significantly. Your We insure agent can help you.

·      Do make sure you’re getting every discount you qualify for. Discounts vary among insurers, but additions like a security system, a new roof and stormproof windows and doors can cut your payments.

·      Do maintain good credit. A better credit score usually qualifies you for a lower premium.

·      Do shop around. Insurers are constantly adjusting rates, adding or subtracting discounts, modifying their geographic preferences and making other changes.

 

Your local We Insure agent can give you a fast and free, apples-to-apples competitive quote for homeowners insurance from an assortment of top-rated insurers in your area. They can help determine what coverage you need and the potential discounts you may be entitled to.

 

Don’t be discouraged in your hunt for a new home. It may take a while to find the right house at the right price, but when you find something that’s a good fit for your needs and budget, talk to your local We Insure agent. You may be surprised by the money-saving ideas they can bring to the table.

Last month, we discussed how to maximize your email marketing results, and you can read that article here. This time, we have even more tips to help you prospect and convert leads — and add value for existing clients — with a smart email marketing strategy.

 

Always Optimize for Mobile

With everything available on the go, it’s no surprise that more than half of emails are viewed on mobile devices. Use this to your advantage by creating a fully responsive mobile version of your newsletter (and website) for a seamless customer experience. If your readers have to pinch and zoom to read your content, then you’re not optimized for mobile. Remember to add compelling images to grab attention and garner greater emotional impact.

 

Timing is Everything

Think about what’s important to your prospects and customers right now and create content accordingly. Depending on where your clients live, you might offer home winterizing advice in late fall, road trip tips in the summer or information about flood insurance during hurricane season. Don’t sell hard during the holidays when most folks are more focused on shopping and festivities — express your appreciation to your valued customers instead. And be mindful of major news events that could make otherwise-appropriate content feel ill-timed. It’s better to post nothing than something that has an unintended impact. This is why it’s essential to review content that you schedule out well in advance. 

 

Getting to Know You

Don’t be “all business” when it comes to your customer email communications. Lighten things up once in a while with fun, uplifting content. Give them a behind-the-scenes view of your business. Help people get to know your staff so they feel more at home when they visit your office. And share your community involvement or charitable efforts with your subscribers.

 

Growing Your List

Sometimes all a potential client needs is a chance to sign up, so make sure you give them plenty of opportunities to do just that. Add a subscription link to your email signature and on all your blog posts — and use your social media channels to promote your newsletter. Have a clear sign-up form on your website and add a QR code to your direct mail that links to your newsletter page.

 

Email marketing is affordable, scalable and — unlike Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn — you own the platform. Start small, stay smart and gradually grow your audience over time. Be consistent, split test your message, track your results, remain client focused and evolve your strategy with your growing agency. If you do all that, then you can build your book of business and your customer relationships at the same time.

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, we want to extend a message of appreciation to our We Insure family. While there’s no doubt that the year has been challenging as we navigate our way through a global pandemic, we’re deeply grateful for the hard work and dedication to family and community that we see in We Insure agencies across the country. 

 

It’s all about providing extraordinary service. 

 

Indeed, the work ethic that elevates our approach to serving consumers is evident in the recognition We Insure continues to receive. Here are two recent examples:

 

In August, the Jacksonville Business Journal again included We Insure on its “Fast 50” list recognizing the fastest-growing private companies in the region based on annual revenue growth. Since its establishment in 2009, We Insure has grown to almost 200 franchise locations in 26 states, making it one of the largest insurance franchise organizations in the United States. 

 

We Insure is also part of Franchise Business Review’s second annual “Culture 100” list. Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm, bases its rankings on leadership, values and overall support. In addition, FBR includes We Insure as one of the Top 200 Best Franchises to Buy in 2021.

 

Though we’re honored to receive this recognition, we know that our success depends on continuing to deliver superior support to our valued agency owners so that they, in turn, can concentrate on growing great relationships and serving their customers. 

 

For this reason, we’re also thankful to We Insure’s top-notch service team’s handling of all the administrative and other behind-the-scenes tasks so that franchise owners can focus their time and energy on finding the best policies for their customers. We can think of no better example of teamwork making the dream work than right here within the We Insure organization. This, we are confident, is one of the main reasons we continue to grow and succeed.

 

At this time of year in particular, consider these words by 20th century motivational writer William Arthur Ward: “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” 

 

There’s no more appropriate time than the Thanksgiving season to express gratitude to We Insure staff members and franchise partners for their continued commitment to serving customers and their communities. It’s your knowledge and expertise that help guide others in making some of the most important decisions concerning their family’s well-being and peace of mind. 

 

We wish you all a healthy and peaceful holiday. Happy Thanksgiving from We Insure.

Independent Research Data Shows Veteran Franchise Owners Are Highly Satisfied with We Insure’s Performance

 

Jacksonville, FL November 11, 2021 – We Insure, Inc. was identified by independent research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of just 80 franchise brands to be named an award-winning franchise in its 2021 report on the Top Franchises for Veterans.

 

We Insure is the premier insurance franchise. Passionate about being the very best independent agency solution, We Insure offers their franchise owners advanced technologies and a full support team. With more than 100 of the top-rated insurance carriers and a service team to handle all the administrative work, We Insure franchise owners can focus on what’s most important, finding the best policies for their customers.

 

Franchise Business Review, a market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only ranking of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes rankings of the top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as guides throughout the year ranking the top franchises in specific sectors.

 

To identify the companies on the list of the best franchises for veterans, Franchise Business Review analyzed data from over 2,500 franchise owners, representing nearly 280 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.

 

We Insure’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

 

“Franchising needs more business owners with the leadership skills and resilience of veterans, but the reality is that very few of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are rated highly by their franchise owners,” said Eric Stites, founder & CEO of Franchise Business Review. “We are committed to helping prospective franchisees get an objective view of the best franchise opportunities, based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. The 80 companies named in this year’s report on the Top Franchises for Veterans received the highest ratings from the veterans who own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”

 

“We are honored to be named a Top Franchise for Veterans by Franchise Business Review,” said We Insure Co-CEO, Deb Franklin. “We understand and appreciate the value that military veterans bring to the any business, which is why We Insure’s model is designed to set our agency owners up for success. Our culture of support and teamwork allows franchisees to focus on growing their business while giving their customers the best experience possible.”
