Core Strategy #3 of Agency Success

Available Now! Access Brent Kelly's new ProFit Tip video and podcast episode for the third of seven core strategies we teach and preach at Sitkins Group, Inc. 

Exit Barriers:

In this week's ProFit Tip, Brent focuses on what Exit Barriers are and why they're important for you and your agency.

What if you could increase your agency's retention by just 3%? What would that mean for your bottom line?

Remember, it's not just what you make, but what you keep.

Here is what 3% means to agencies based on their revenue size (this doesn't even include account revenue increases, rounding out, or earned referrals)

$1,000,000 = $30,000

$3,000,000 = $90,000

$5,000,000 = $150,000

$10,000,000 = $300,000

$25,000,000 = $750,000

Our goal at Sitkins is 99% effective retention!

IF YOUR AGENCY COULD TALK, WHAT WOULD IT SAY?

leadership owners Nov 14, 2019

One of the best questions I ever heard came from Andy Stanley, the founder and pastor of North Point Ministries in Atlanta: “What will your story be when it’s time for your story to be told?”

Whenever I’ve asked this question at our senior leadership programs or producer programs, it tends to spur considerable thought. I can see that people are asking themselves, “When the time comes, what is my story going to be?” I think this question applies to you regardless of your role in the agency, whether you’re a leader, a producer, or any other team member.

Although we may not be aware of it, we all are creating stories that someday will be told. Perhaps a better word is “legacy.” What legacy are you going to leave? As I’ve said before, eventually everybody leaves their business.

Granted, most of my readers will be in this business for another 10, 15, or 20 years, if not longer. Why? Because it’s a great business...

The Producer's Best Version Possible

producers Oct 03, 2019

Recently I introduced The Agency’s Best Version Pyramid (BVP). It was so well received that I’ve expanded on the concept and applied it to the all-important role of producers. Net new revenue may not solve all your problems, but I firmly believe that it solves most of them!

I continue to be very concerned about our distribution system, the Independent Insurance Agency channel. Even with organic growth rates climbing from 4.5% in 2017 to just above 6% today, there’s still so much unrealized potential among independent agencies.

“Potential” is a word I hesitate to use because I’ve always disliked it. No matter the endeavor—sports, music, theater or sales—that word is almost always attached to those who have fallen short of success or missed some great opportunity. Often, the word is associated with someone past their prime and usually is prefaced by the word “oh.” “Oh, they had so much potential,” suggests...

Ten Ways to Build a Strong Agency

The Agency's Best Version Pyramid

“Close your eyes and imagine the best possible version of your agency. That’s what you really want to become. You’ve got to let go of any part of your agency that is an obstacle, anything that’s holding it back from becoming the best agency possible.”

The concept of the Best Version Pyramid made its public debut during our recent ProFitNet meeting in April, and it is something I’m going to continue to develop for all the major areas of agencies.

The ideal way for me to explain the behaviors and strategies around becoming the Best Version Possible (BVP), is to use a pyramid, which I refer to as the Best Version Pyramid. As with any pyramid, it starts with core, foundational stones and ends with a capstone. 

The first is the Agency’s Best Version Pyramid (ABVP) consisting of 10 “stones.” As I define the various stones, I’ll share each one’s purpose and desired results. You’ll...

The Seven Deadly Traps

producers Aug 08, 2019

IF YOU CAN’T RECOGNIZE (AND AVOID) THESE, WE NEED TO TALK

When I talk to producers who are frustrated with their results and overall balance in life, I think the real issue is that they’ve lost their freedom. Specifically, they’ve lost the freedom to do what they want to do, when they want to do it. Even the younger ones talk longingly about “the good old days,” when they had more freedom. But the reality is that with 24/7/365 access to data, people and products in today’s digital world, workdays seem to never end.

I recently gave a speech in Toronto to the Worldwide Insurance Network Group (WING), which included independent insurance brokers from 20 different countries. It was a great learning experience for me, and it reinforced my belief that the world’s best brokers love the collective genius of brainstorming with other super-smart individuals.

During my opening comments, I asked if any of them were experiencing some loss of freedom or...
