An independent agent out of Flushing, Michigan, Robert is proud of his fourth-generation family business and calls his partnership with Progressive “nothing short of fantastic.” He knows this, plus the breadth of product, efficient technology, and dependable business operation is what’s kept his agency alive for more than 25 years. Being better every day than the day before. It’s Robert’s goal, it’s our goal.

There’s a lot of learning materials that come through, like the webinars. Even if it’s not a new product, the webinars are a great refresher of what’s available out there.”

    Throughout our history, we’ve pushed the independent agent channel forward with easier and faster ways to quote business—eliminating time, effort and frustration.

Agents of Being There

When José’s agency flooded during Hurricane Irma, he had a lot of quick decisions to make. “It’s a situation where you have no electricity or phones, it was terrible.” So José drove up north, out of the floods, to a dry, remote location so he could be there for his customers in their time of need.

“Our Progressive rep, Huston, was the only rep who reached out to us during the storm,” José said. “I told him that we were having some tough times, working from a remote location and that it was frustrating not having the resources a normal office would have.”

During the conversation, Huston asked for José’s address. And, within a day, sent him a laptop to use and a box full of office supplies. “All the essentials,” José said. “It was totally unexpected. It was just awesome.”

José knows his sales rep is always there to help push his business forward, not just in harrowing times. He receives tools, personal advice, and additional support that give his agency a competitive edge. He says, “With Progressive it’s more of a true partnership—our rep is invested in our success.”

From keeping José aware of the latest marketing tools to helping him train employees, it’s this stable partnership that lays the groundwork for a more certain future. And after the hurricane, he knew he wouldn’t have to worry about his customers getting the help they needed, when they needed it most. “We get a lot of compliments from our customers about Progressive,” said José. “Whatever claims situation, they let us know they’re happy about the way things worked out, and that’s good.”

Agents of Partnership

When Mark Gannon took over the agency family business, he had no idea he’d grow to more than 100 employees and write policies in 47 states.

“We’ve got a great team that provides all products across the board with a focus in each,” he said. “There’s a real desire for all of us to not be siloed, but we also understand that we all play a role in bringing services to our customers.”

That’s where Progressive sales rep Jim Griffith helps the Gannon Agency. He’s been working with Mark and his agency for more than 20 years, helping to build growth plans, and tap into new tools, services and programs to help create operational effectiveness.

“It’s been a mixture of someone working with us—face to face, training our staff, presenting new technology and showing us how to use it—that’s been a winning combination,” Mark said.

Here are five ways Mark leverages tools and resources to grow
  1. TrainingLeverages his partnership with his rep. “Jim, my Progressive rep, sits and spends time training the staff and it’s been unreal. He’s a great guy inside and outside of work.”

    Visit Knowledge on Demand in ForAgentsOnly.com to find CE courses, product training and more.

  2. FocusWith timesaving technology like ForAgentsOnly.com, he can focus more time connecting with customers. “This is what makes my staff happy. When they can easily quote something, go to FAO, and get a quick answer.”
  3. StrategyBuilding relationships with his peers like those on Progressive’s Agency Council helps him stay connected and in touch with what’s happening across the country. “I think there’s a lot of strength in agency collaboration and sharing stories.”
  4. MarketingWhether staying in touch with existing customers or acquiring news ones, they know using a powerful carrier brand and easy to use marketing tools is a winning combination. “Our marketing folks will always dig in and use Progressive’s marketing materials.”

    Visit Progressive Marketing in ForAgentsOnly.com to find co-brandable postcards, emails and print ads.

  5. ProductsOffering a full breadth of products, he’s confident his agency provides each customer with the coverages and services they need and expect and the right rate. “We write and quote all products across the board with a focus in each.”

Agents of Trust

When Ohio-based independent agent Chad Kelly received a text from his daughter—a link to a gift she wanted for her upcoming birthday—he immediately began doing what he does best—weighing the item’s pros and cons.

“It only had three and a half stars and I thought, that’s no good,” Chad said. “So, I went ahead and ordered a similar product with a four-and-a-half-star rating. Yeah, it was more money, but four and a half stars says something.”

When it comes to comparing insurance carriers for his agency’s customers, Chad adopts the same star-rating mentality.

“About once a month, my team and I get together and talk about the overall value offering that each of our carriers have,” Chad said, noting they compare six key points in price, product offering, stability, claims service, customer services, and ease of doing business. “There’s nine insurance carriers that we can quote to customers, and Progressive has the highest of our internally generated star ratings.”

An agency built on trust

Chad, who is the owner of Kelly Insurance in Cuyahoga Valley, knows a well-known brand in the community, coupled with a trusted name like Progressive, makes the sales process easier. But, for Chad, there’s one point above everything else that quickly changes a customer’s perceptions about Progressive.

“Most of my staff also has Progressive for their own personal insurance—myself included,” he said. “When we tell our customers that it’s the one insurance company that we trust to put our own business with, more often than not, they respond more favorably to that.”

Chad wants his customers to feel confident that they’re with a company that’s “for people like them,” which is why he often chooses Progressive. He knows that their 80 years of experience, along with their leadership and expertise in auto, commercial, and recreational lines, will meet customers’ needs for the long haul.

Tools to help his business grow

Just like Chad’s customers rely on him for excellent support and guidance, Chad knows he can turn to Progressive for resources to help his customers and his business thrive.

“Basically, if we have an idea to attract customers that are a good fit for Progressive, I feel like our sales rep is always willing to help make it happen,” Chad said.

One of the key tools Chad has leaned on in the past is the co-branded merchandise items, which his agency uses for local events around his community.

“We did a couple motorcycles rallies and gave out those microfiber cloths for your lenses and glasses,” he said. “We feel that we would rather give something away that the customer would have a hard time parting with.”

Another powerful tool Chad referenced was Progressive’s Agency Growth Series, which brings real-world business solutions to agents through informative talks with business leaders or subject matter experts from Progressive. The program is constantly evolving and covers a wide array of topics such as hiring the right agents, consumer behavior economics, life events and retention marketing, and more.

“Most agents identify themselves as being in the service culture, like we’re here to be responsive to what the customer needs,” he said. “But [through the Growth Series] they’re challenging us to also embrace a learning culture as well.”

As far as other tools are concerned, Chad said he spends about a third of his day quoting as well as looking at CrossSell and ReQuote reports on Progressive’s comprehensive agency website, ForAgentsOnly.com. “We also use Agent Rewards, and their free Continuing Education classes as well,” he added.

A partnership designed to foster growth

Chad mentioned that he and his agency mirror Progressive’s mission, vision and core values. It’s this integrity and connection to the brand that creates the symbiotic relationship with the brand.

“Truth be told, I think what customers really want is value,” Chad said.

Which is why Chad is so focused on quality insurance for his customers. “It’s not about dollars and cents,” he said. It all comes back to the neighbors, co-workers, family members, and residents who Chad’s agency writes policies for daily.

“I’ve always been a fan of if you do the right thing for the customer, the dollars and cents will take care of themselves,” said Chad.

Agents of Stability

When Kim Riha, from Accredited Insurance, and her family hit the road for a summer adventure in 2017, the possibility of nasty weather near her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, wasn’t even on the radar.

But that getaway under the stars took a drastic turn when a tornado ripped through a campground. Most of the RVs at the campsite were destroyed, including her own. Fortunately, like many of Kim’s own customers, she insures her RV with Progressive, and received a brand new one based on the overall damage and her coverage.

In talking with her local RVers after the incident, Kim realized one important thing—“We had the best coverage out of everyone at our campsite,” said Kim with a smile. “The process was quicker than everyone else’s, the payout was fast, and the folks that we worked with were wonderful.”

As she went through the claims process, she was continually impressed by Progressive’s claims experience and coverage. “I don’t think people realize how great Progressive’s coverage is, and now that I’ve had a total loss, I can speak from experience.”

A constant in an ever-changing industry

Kim is a fan of the way Progressive conducts in-person interactions. “Our Progressive reps have been really helpful. I know that if we run into a problem I can call them and they’ll help.”

Progressive continues to make significant investments to support agent’s long-term, profitable growth. This financial stability gives Kim confidence she’ll have a strong partner for years to come. She points to coverages, price, and Progressive Service Centers as other reasons why she quotes frequently with the company.

“Our customers have said that the Progressive Service Centers are wonderful,” Kim said.

“When one of my customers went to a normal repair shop they told him it would be three weeks before he would get his car back, and by going through the Service Center he had it back in two.”

Progressive’s Service Centers are there for customers that need any changes or updates on their car. They do everything from finding a repair shop to finding a rental. “It’s really a one-stop shop,” she said.

For Kim, it’s important that she’s confident in both the service and the coverage she recommends to her clients. It’s what made her business successful and it’s why she’ll continue to partner with Progressive for years to come.

Agents of Forward Thinking

When someone starts to work at one of Jeromy Huerta’s agencies, very quickly they find things are run a bit differently.

“Recently, we had a new employee who pulled out a notepad on their first day,” Jeromy said. “I had to go over and explain that isn’t something we do here.”

Since 2006, Jeromy’s office has had a no paper rule. That means no paper for notes, for printing, for preparing meeting agendas, or anything else. This paperless policy may seem radical for incoming employees, but for him it’s just part of everyday life in this new digital age.

“The goal is always to be relevant,” Jeromy said. “And you always have to be able to adjust to the changing environment.”

Being relevant is an unofficial motto for Jeromy, who is an early and strong adaptor of new technologies that help his customers save money and his agents retain business. This forward-thinking mentality is also why Jeromy chooses insurance companies like Progressive to insure his customers.

“Progressive is on the forefront of doing new and exciting things—especially with technology,” he said.

Put your customer in control with usage-based insurance

Jeromy points to Snapshot®—Progressive’s usage-based insurance product that personalizes customers’ rates based on their actual driving habits—as an innovative tool that helps his customers save money.

“You have to have an advantage,” he said. “And what you can do with Snapshot provides that unique kind of advantage.” Jeromy also advises all of his new customers to download the Progressive mobile app. “Anything that’s new, we try to take it on and incorporate it as soon as we can.”

Easy quoting equals easy acquisition

Jeromy also points to Progressive’s quoting process as another reason he frequently quotes with the company.

“All new agents love Progressive because of how easy their processes are,” he said. So whether he’s preparing a quote or checking in on his Platinum benefits, Jeromy knows that he’ll spend less time trying to understand the process and more time helping customers. “Progressive makes the process seamless,” he said.

Constantly adapting to new technology

Jeromy—who has office locations in Arizona and Washington—is also part of Progressive’s Technology Advisory Board, which meets quarterly to get input from agents on the company’s technological plans.

“To be a part of that and see what they’re working on is great,” he said. “I think it’s awesome that they bring in agents and get our insights because we’re the ones doing the day-to-day stuff.”

It’s these types of transparent discussions that make Jeromy excited about what the future holds for Progressive and their agents.

Looking towards the future, together

As Progressive continues to look forward, we’ll continue to build strong partnerships with agents, like Jeromy, who are making an impact by always looking for innovative ways to thrive in an ever-changing industry.

“Companies like Progressive are the ones I trust,” he said. “They have the technology that’s going to help our clients and provide more stability for everyone down the road.”
