Having spent the last decade as Licensed Agents, Agency Owners, Digital & Social Media Marketers, and Consultants to literally over 41,000 Insurance Agents from all carriers, all states, and all areas of the country, we at Career Insurance Agents understand YOU, this INDUSTRY, and what is necessary to have SUCCESS.
Both Captive Agency Models and Independent Agency Models have their fair share of frustrating elements. Pitfalls that can create difficult circumstances for an Agent to succeed.
Captives are subject to carrier appetite, rate environments, compliance, many hoops to jump for solid bonuses, lower commissions, and limited product selection.
Independents struggle with steep learning curves, having to string many technologies together, lack of training, lack of support, balancing the requirements of multiple carriers, and having to figure out how to brand and educate their market not only on who THEY are but what carriers they represent
We wondered why there was not an alternative that solved most if not all of these problems and we began a journey to create it.
It took several years as well as 13 different sets of conversations and negotiations with various aggregators around the country to provide the best Independent solution for YOU the agent.
We spoke to every potential partner about contracts for Agents... Training... Support... Compensation... Culture... Atmosphere... and with each and every company we spoke to there was something that just did not feel or seem right. An element that felt like it was unfavorable to the Agent.
Our goal has always been putting the Agent first and making sure EVERYTHING we do has that goal in mind. If you are a regular of Insurance Soup or use any of our products or services that is no secret to you.
In 2018, after a long journey, we found a national partner that shared our vision that has been doing great things with Agents for over 20 years.
What we brought to the table enhanced and amplified a company and set of systems and processes that were already the best we had come across prior to our involvement
