Young Insurance Agents Value the Ability to Check Multiple Markets for Clients

On April 27, the Insurance Journal shared the results of what young agents (those aged 40 and younger) like most and least about the insurance industry and being agents. (Source: http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2016/04/27/404152.htm) The good news is the optimism that young agents have about their insurance careers. Among the reasons young insurance agents like their profession is the ability to be their own boss.

Most young agents, according to the Insurance Journal’s survey, value “the ability to check several markets to attain the best insurance coverage for each client.” However, one challenge that many young agents face (and also one of the things most agents like LEAST about the business according to the Insurance Journal) is “the pressure from carriers to produce for them in order to keep an appointment.”

Using SIAA’s proven solution, over 3,400 insurance professionals have made their dream of creating their own agency a reality.

  • Represent the most competitive companies
  • Use agency development resources of a $6 billion+ national organization

Young Insurance Agents Like Being Their Own Boss

On April 27, the Insurance Journal shared the results of what young agents (those aged 40 and younger) like most and least about the insurance industry and being agents. (Source: http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2016/04/27/404152.htm) The good news is the optimism that young agents have about their insurance careers. Among the reasons young insurance agents like their profession is the ability to be their own boss.

Many young agents value being their own boss and some have been given considerable autonomy by their agency owners. However, this is not always the case for all young agents. Considering the possibility of agency acquisitions or other ownership-related changes, a young agent may actually lose some of that autonomy through no fault of their own.

Typically, for the insurance agent in their 30s or 40s there comes a point to consider the next step. Often this leads to a desire to start their own insurance agency. For many though, transitioning from a Producer to Agency Owner is overwhelming.

SIA of Northern Ohio has helped many young agents transition from producer and sales roles into agency ownership. Using SIAA’s proven solution, over 3,400 insurance professionals have made their dream of creating their own agency a reality.

Young insurance agents that want to be their own boss have the opportunity by working with SIA of Northern Ohio to:

  • Represent the most competitive companies
  • Use agency development resources of a $6 billion+ national organization
  • Have the support of a local team of insurance professionals with a combined 70+ years of experience building successful insurance businesses
  • Earn the highest commissions, profit-sharing and incentive plans available to owners of newly created agencies.

Three Reasons Independent Agencies Should Join SIAA

In the insurance business, size is critical. Existing independent agencies who are looking to strengthen the value of their agency and earn more income are considering joining agency networks. While agents have choices, SIAA is the best option for three primary reasons:

  1. SIAA is the largest alliance of independent insurance agencies in the country. According to Insurance Journal (http://www.insurancejournal.com/top-20-agency-partnerships/ ), SIAA’s total P&C revenue ranks 1st and is bigger than the 2nd and 3rd groups combined.
  2. SIAA has a proven track record with over 5,700 agencies and over $6 billion in-force premium. The collective strength at both a national and local level allows SIAA to work with strong carrier partners that are willing to reward the group with the best deals in exchange for profitable volume.
  3. SIAA’s model enables members to participate in profit-sharing and bonuses at BOTH a local AND national level. SIAA members benefit by having multiple opportunities to earn additional compensation and incentives. No other group offers the layers of compensation available to members of SIAA.

Don’t miss out on opportunities that might be available as a member of SIAA.  Visit www.siaa.net today to learn more about how you can increase your agency’s income and value, represent the most competitive companies, and increase your independence.
