Every business needs a competitive advantage, something that shakes up their market, brings value in unexpected ways, changes the game, and creates demand for what they offer. The insurance industry is ripe for disruption, and we help our members become that disruptive force.
We teach you how to control your business
Vision | Strategy | Implementation | Results
Q4intelligence is a business, sales, and marketing consulting firm working with insurance and benefits agencies. We advise, train, and coach agencies on how to take control of their businesses. Our goal in working with clients is to develop each one into a strong, thriving business that is seen as the feared competitor in their market.
It’s all about results
Our greatest celebrations are those we share with our clients. Using resources and curriculum we’ve created, coupled with ongoing guidance, we help our clients achieve celebration-worthy results focused on keeping their businesses independent, strong, and growing.
Here’s what we see industry-wide that motivated us to start this business
Every business needs to control two things:
- The way you impact the business of your clients
- The compensation you receive for delivering that impact
Unfortunately, the traditional agency cedes too much of this control to the insurance carriers. Those who are not in control of these critical pieces of the business are finding their very survival threatened.
It’s time to embrace a more consultative approach and expand your offerings. And, for those who do, your best days are still ahead. Coming from independent agencies ourselves, we’ve put these ideas into practice and watched the results first-hand, which inspired us share them with others.
Not only do our clients recognize this need to control their businesses, they are also ready to take action. And they find the resources provided by Q4intelligence are exactly what they need to make it a reality.

Push past plateaus with a strategy
We all know how common it is for producers and agencies to reach plateaus. However with the rapidly changing industry, plateaus are more dangerous than ever. It’s critical to recognize that what got you to where you are today will not get you any further, and it will no longer be good enough to even keep you where you are.
However, going out of business or selling does not have to be the end game. The continued success of your agency requires the right strategy. We help you set that strategy and plan and execute in a way that puts you in control. When you’re in control, your success and relevance no longer depend on someone else’s product.
To be fair, this type of business management does require a new level of effort and commitment to learning, thinking, communicating, and assimilating ideas and information. But, it’s this kind of effort that will push you through plateaus, will keep your business healthy and thriving, and will have your competition fearing you and your next move.
AGENCY IMPACT: Q4 QUADRANTS
Effective business growth depends on working in all four quadrants.
Businesses must be zealously focused on what they do best as organizations and individuals, always asking, “What are we doing today that we shouldn’t be doing tomorrow?” This could be outsourcing a service, moving a process, abandoning a market, or ending an unproductive relationship.
