Our Understanding

Select Choice Benefits supports agents through each stage.

Formation

You decide that you want to be an insurance agent and select your line of business. You complete your insurance exam, get appointed with a specific carrier or are looking for carriers in your selected line of business.

Survival

You get trained in your product line, start building your business through networking, cold calling and referrals. These are the feast or famine years! Statistics show that it takes two years before revenue flow is consistent.

Success

Your monthly income is building. Your clients are renewing their policies and renewal income is flowing in. At this point agents are starting to grow their portfolio.

Retention

Once success has been achieved, agents need a support structure to stay irreplaceable to your clients in order to maximize your opportunity. This stage is the most critical and if not planned a change of agent/broker can occur easily from your competitors.
