INSURANCE RENEWAL FULL GUIDE MISTAKE YOU DO
Buying and renewing insurance can be a disgusting process. To borrow an idea from Adam Smith’s property of nations (published 1776), “Modest, usually insurance premiums, many people despise too much risk to pay risk.”
Cost-Effective as possible. There are tips to ensure the buyer, confidence and understanding to identify the differences in the service on buying insurance.
Here’s what we know: Most businesses are underworld by their current broker. Last year, we sent several surveys in mid-market businesses to measure broker loyalty. Net Promoter Score (NPS) – Promoter Percentage – We found that companies with 10 to 499 employees have rated their brokers negatively with NPS-15 (companies who were happy that their brokers had reduced their premiums, One of them was NPS 16). In other words, most businesses will not recommend their brokers to their brokers.
Please know that we have not written this business to persuade you to buy more insurance for your business. Instead, we want to empower ourselves to reduce the time spent in the management of renewal while improving the desired result: better coverage at better prices.
Insurance is not sexy; we receive it. Most people do not like to think more than once a year. However, we want you to think about the time of renewal.
For your help, we offer 3 Power Moves that help you maximise the value of your broker during the renewal time:
Review past renewal results
Appraisal and Rental of the Right Broker
Influence the market and negotiate the key terms in your policy
What do you have to lose?
Mid-market business owners like you get more personal wealth in your company. It is essential that you take steps to protect yourself and your family from the events which can stop the operation, reduce the benefits, or worse – the result in bankruptcy.
Insurance helps to increase companies by reducing uncertainties for success. This eliminates the financial burden of risk so that managers can focus on ongoing and growing business.
Before these electrical movements come in, see how commercial insurance is designed. U.S. In, property and liability insurance is distributed in one of three ways:
Direct author system
Special agency system
Independent agency system
Each system has its advantages. For example, Am broke is an independent agency. We have access and communication with many high-quality carriers, which gives us the power to make the best policies and premiums for our customers. Without the exclusive representation of the insurance company, the broker means a broker who is
Direct writers and individual agency system market insurance through salaried salespeople or commission agents that sell only one company’s insurance policy. Examples of farmer groups, countrywide, and state are examples. These systems provide high-quality claims and risk control, but can not be
S the legal agent of the insurance company, not the buyer. On the contrary, the independent agent is the authorised agent of the insured (you).
A system can do better business based on its platform of development. For example, with initial risk quotes (a modern version of the Direct Writer system), the initial risk for small risk can be used to buy your first policy. It’s like filling using tax professional versus TurboTax. It’s safe, fast and easy – but it’s mostly “cookie cutter” coverage.
If your company needs to reduce premiums, increase coverage and expose the difference in your current policy, then you are doing the best job with an independent broker with specific industry expertise.

Measure past renewal results
Your renewal date is coming soon. How do you know that you should work with your current broker? What value do they offer from a 10-20% commission on your annual premium?
