Personalizing Your Business ... Know This
November 4, 2014
Your Farm Bureau Financial Services business is your business. From the moment we decide to have you join our team, you can look forward to doing business in your hometown, on your own time and with your personal touch. And, while we’ll provide the resources and support to launch your success, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to truly make the business your own, and knowing these key tips will help you get there!
Know Your Client/Members
Farm Bureau agents truly value their client/members. It’s the reason we prioritize face-to-face communication and don’t offer insurance quotes online. Because we do business locally, our agents have the unique opportunity to get to know each client/member on an individual basis, customize their services and make a real difference in their lives. We know the personal relationships you’ll build with your clients from your very first interactions will lay the foundation for long-term member relationships, and we couldn’t be happier about that.
Know Your Community
Our Farm Bureau companies were founded more than 75 years ago to meet the needs of farmers. Today our agents have the skillset and products to serve entire communities. That’s why when you become a Farm Bureau agent, you also take on a leadership role in your community. As an insurance agency owner, you’ll be proud to serve your community through continued support and involvement with the local organizations that speak to your core values, your passions and your vision to make “home,” wherever that may be, a safer, more enjoyable place to live and work.
Know Your Products
Farm Bureau client/members count on their agent to know the ins and outs of their insurance policies. And, because your client/members will be entrusting you to protect some of life’s most personal matters, you want to offer equally personalized coverage. With more than 90 individual products to choose from, you can be confident that you have the right products to help each client/member meet important life goals. Plus, when you sell Farm Bureau insurance, your personal brand is synonymous with an industry leader – the No. 1 insurer of farm market share in our 8-state region and No. 2 in the United States.
Know Your Industry
The insurance industry is always changing and developing, and our client/members trust their Farm Bureau agents to be on top of it. It’s the reason we invest in your ongoing education, training and professional development. From the time you open your business, you’ll learn the nuts and bolts of our broad product offering, technology and proven sales techniques through a unique blend of online, classroom and mentor training. From there, you’ll have the opportunity to explore your individual passions and interests within the industry by attending focused seminars and training opportunities throughout the year. Your personal commitment to staying atop of current trends, topics and best practices mean you’ll be able to provide your neighbors with powerful customer service and the most customized services in the insurance industry.
Know What Motivates You
How you choose to personalize your Farm Bureau business boils down to who you are and what motivates you. Our agents are driven to do work that matters, ready to make a difference in the lives of those served, and are energized by challenge and willing to accept the risk at the opportunity for reward. It’s these innate qualities which will truly allow you to meet your personal and professional goals while helping others achieve theirs.
