How to Become a Successful Insurance Agent

January 05, 2023

Stepping outside of your comfort zone can be scary, especially when it comes to taking on a new opportunity. Luckily, Farm Bureau Financial Services (FBFS) has a comprehensive development program that teaches you how to be successful.

1. We Help You Build a Strong Foundation

FBFS’s Developing Agent Program introduces you to the role of an FBFS insurance agent. During this try-it-on-for-size period, you make a commission from your insurance sales while also learning the ropes of the insurance business. Plus, you don’t have to leave your current position. That means you don’t have to sacrifice financial security while you determine whether being an insurance agent is right for you. 

2. You Are Financially Supported

Starting a new job isn’t easy. That’s why FBFS provides financial support by offering additional compensation during the early years with the company. As you become a successful agent and reach assigned property-casualty and life production milestones, we’ll support you each step of the way with commissions, bonuses and incentives as well as practical mentorship from our support team

3. You Don’t Have to Be an Advertising Pro

A major part of starting a business is getting the word out about what you do. With FBFS, you don’t need to be a marketing or advertising professional to become a successful insurance agent. FBFS offers a marketing toolkit, on-call support and a personalized webpage to help you build your business. It’s important that your community knows who you are and how you can assist them, and FBFS has the tools to make that happen. 

4. You Can Qualify for Incentives

Have you ever wanted to travel to destinations like Ireland or Hawaii? With FBFS, you can by qualifying for cash bonuses and incentive travel. With a lot of effort and motivation, you could join leadership and other top agents at exciting destinations. 

5. Your Education Never Stops

Each year, FBFS agents are encouraged to attend the Sales Conference to hear about company updates, further their agent education and network with other FBFS agents from across a 14-state area. At this event, agents hear from top industry speakers and learn new sales tips on how to become better insurance agents. Agents also learn important FBFS company and product updates, network with other agents and learn from exhibitors and FBFS partners. This conference is one of the highlights of our continuing education
