Become an Insurance Agent

How to Become a Better Insurance Agent


Stepping outside of your comfort zone can be scary, especially when it comes to taking on a new opportunity. Luckily, Farm Bureau Financial Services has a comprehensive development program that teaches you how to become a successful insurance agent. The attention and respect Farm Bureau gives its client/members are a reflection of the attention and respect it shows its agents.

Discover how Farm Bureau can help you become a successful insurance agent.

1. We Help You Build a Strong Foundation

Farm Bureau’s Developing Agent Program introduces you to the role of a Farm Bureau 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 quit your day job. That means you don’t have to sacrifice financial security while you figure out whether being a local insurance agent is right for you.

2. You Are Financially Supported

Starting a new job isn’t easy. That’s why Farm Bureau 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 for the first six months of your job and beyond.

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 Farm Bureau, you don’t need to be a marketing or advertising professional to become a successful insurance agent. Farm Bureau offers a marketing toolkit, on-call support and a personalized website to help you create a one-of-a-kind insurance brand. It’s important that your community knows who you are and how you can assist them, and Farm Bureau has the tools to make sure that happens.

4. You Can Qualify for Incentives

Have you ever wanted to travel to destinations like Ireland or Hawaii? With Farm Bureau, you can by qualifying for cash bonuses and incentive travel. In fact, the top 15% of our agents earn up to $15,000 in incentive awards each year. With a lot of effort and motivation, you might just find yourself at one of these world-class resorts.

5. Your Education Never Stops

Each year, Farm Bureau agents are encouraged to attend the Sales Conference where they further their agent education and network with other Farm Bureau agents from across a 14-state area. At this event, agents hear from top industry speakers and learn new sales tips to help their business grow. Agents also learn about Farm Bureau updates, network with more than 400 other agents, and learn from exhibitors and Farm Bureau partners. This conference is one of the highlights of Farm Bureau’s continuing education.
