Work with Firefly Agency to Become an Independent Agent
Firefly is the insurance team member that you’ve been searching for to remove barriers between agents and carriers. This lets you take care of clients instantly, make more money and build better relationships.
Is your agency or brokerage ready for the next generation in direct insurance production programs? Our new system offers you the tools, capabilities and support to revolutionize the way agents get and keep direct carrier appointments.
Delight Your Clients, Build Loyalty & Increase Production
In the world of insurance, the power is at the client level. Your clients want to work with you. While many agencies struggle to get and keep direct appointments, Firefly’s carriers will welcome you as a direct producer with open arms.
Finally, there is a solution for agents who have built (or who want to build) an independent agency. They wish to succeed without the pain of constant carrier changes or fear of being terminated by a carrier for not satisfying their production requirement.
The Firefly Agency Growth System
Do you want to start your own independent agency and take care of your clients without burdensome production requirements for each carrier you get appointed with?
● Tired of applying for carrier contracts?
● Eager to implement new marketing strategies without sales quotas?
● Ready to focus on building a book of business and giving excellent client service instead of managing your time between telephone calls with carrier reps?
If you said yes, then we can help. Firefly’s systems and support will get you carrier contracts in order to start your journey as an independent P&C insurance agent.
Scalable Agency Solution
We offer a Scalable Agency Solution so you can save time, money, and resources by eliminating the middleman. Then grow your business as much as you can by offering the services that you can provide using your direct appointments and new software solutions.
How We Help Independent Insurance Agents Start & Grow Agencies
We provide independent insurance agents with the training, insurance agency oversight, and support necessary to run successful P&C agencies without a wholesale license.
To do so, we negotiate carrier contracts exclusively for agents who work with us (on both personal and commercial lines of business) and then eliminate the production requirements that normally come with the contracts.
The result is that your agency will make more commissions because you can write business directly without a middle man slowing you down.
No Per-Carrier Production Requirements
Imagine an insurance agency where you never worry about insurance carrier appointments being canceled because of lack of production. One where you are making more money each month. An agency where your closing ratio and retention ratios are higher — all while working with a great, reputable, and widely-respected carriers. That is what Firefly can do for you and your agency.
Direct Carrier Appointments
Cut out the brokerage middleman and save time on your insurance carrier appointments.
● Run your own quotes, bind accounts, and service policies seamlessly through our software
● Save time during the quoting, issuing and servicing process
● Give your clients the experience they want and deserve
We help grow insurance agencies, one carrier after another, as soon as you sign up.
The Benefits of a Direct Carrier Appointment
With direct insurance carrier appointments, you can establish a higher income, and you don’t have to worry about lower commissions you would get with a broker. Not to mention the added benefit of building better relationships with your clients altogether.
Binding Authority with All of Our Carriers
When you work with Firefly to get appointed, you have binding authority with each of the insurance carrier appointments on your book of business.
This binding authority gives you ultimate control over the account quoting process. Want to bind a quote from a carrier at 10:00pm? Do it!
