There is a reason captive agents are “captive”; you are, quite literally, being held captive by one insurance provider. While being a captive agent can give you experience in the insurance industry, many quickly find that being captive is stifling to their growth. Captive agents often plateau in their careers. Becoming an independent agent will give you the freedom you long for, and open up a whole world of opportunities to grow and expand in the insurance industry.
Expand your portfolio as an independent agent
As an independent agent, your focus and priorities will shift. You are not bound to one product held by one insurance provider; instead, you are free to choose the best insurance with the best value for each specific client. It is the freedom you need to provide better service to each client, allowing you to grow and expand.
Transitioning to becoming an independent agent
There’s no doubt that starting an independent insurance agency from scratch can be challenging. It takes a solid business plan, dedicated marketing, and good old hard work to build a customer base. The freedom you get from becoming an independent agent comes with risks and responsibilities, but the rewards are worth it. You have to build up a client base and a brand reputation from the bottom up. This can be a daunting task for anyone.
