Helping You Down the Road to Independence
Your Journey to Independence Starts Here
Are you ready to journey down the road to independence but not sure where to begin? State associations in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (the Big “I”), can help you navigate this exciting, new path as you transition to the independent agency distribution model.
We’ve created this website to give you insight into the independent agency world and help you plan for the areas critical to operating a successful, efficient independent insurance agency. We can equip you with the knowledge and resources to help your agency grow and thrive.
How We Help You Become Independent:
You have options for purchasing your book of business but may need to seek financing to move forward with your agency plans. One of the best places to work with for your agency’s financial needs is a bank that was designed specifically for independent insurance agencies.
Having the right workflows, procedures and staff in place is critical in running an efficient, growth-driven agency. Build a strong foundation with these in the beginning, so you can focus on other things in your agency like growth, client acquisition and retention down the road.
Management Systems Choosing the right agency management system is a very necessary step in operating a successful independent insurance agency. It’s important to compare and understand the different options so you can make an educated decision that sets your agency up for success.
Being independent opens the door for your agency to access a wide range of insurance companies and products. It’s important to understand your many options for market access so you have the best products to offer your customers.
Marketing yourself in the independent space is different than what you're likely used to doing in the past. You now have the opportunity to create a unique brand for your agency and design your own modern customer experience for your clients and prospects.
Training & Development
Set your agency apart from the competition with a staff that is highly trained and ready to provide superior customer service. From continuing education to custom in-house courses to online training, there are many options to build out a comprehensive professional development program for your agency.
