Q4intelligence is a consultative networking organization for independent insurance and benefits agencies. We advise, train, and coach agencies on how to take control of their businesses. Our solution-based selling system is the foundation for changing the agency model and taking control of what is sold, how it's sold, and how much an agency gets paid for it.
We work with agencies andin the US and Canada. Agencies must apply for membership, and once accepted, enjoy the benefits of market exclusivity (we only accept one agency per geographic market).
Having spent years working in the independent agency system, we saw the challenges and limitations agencies experienced while struggling in the traditional, brokered insurance model. More importantly, we also saw the many opportunities for agencies that chose to expand their offerings and embrace a more consultative approach. Putting those ideas into practice ourselves and watching the results first-hand inspired us share them with others so now you, too, can benefit from these opportunities gained from changing your business model.
While we love to see results from our own efforts, we have a particular enthusiasm for seeing results that others are able to achieve. We dedicate ourselves to creating resources, training courses, and networking events to teach a curriculum around expanding the business model of the traditional agency. We believe the traditional model is going the way of the dinosaur and those agencies who don't actively take control of their own business are soon going to find themselves out of business.
Every business needs to control two things; however, the traditional agency controls neither. Both are controlled by the insurance carriers.
As a member of our network, you will learn to control your business model. It will be very evident to your clients that your impact goes well beyond an insurance product. And, when your value is so significant and obvious, having a conversation about compensation becomes easy. Not only do the firms in our network recognize the need to take control of their business, they are also ready to take action. And they find the resources provided by Q4intelligence are what they need to make control a reality.
We were formerly Benefits Growth Network. The people and the company remain the same. Our services have expanded since inception, which has inspired the name change.
