The Trusted Choice moniker for agencies is both a badge of honor and an apt description. These agents are trusted advisors known to offer customers a broad choice of insurance products at competitive pricing. And options are a-plenty with thousands of insurance companies in the U.S. alone.
The challenge for agents is not a lack of choice, but rather finding the right choice for their clients’ needs. Matching a customer’s geographical area, coverage needs and industry type is the relatively easy part. It’s knowing which companies among these are invested in the independent agent channel and have the same reputation for excellence that a Trusted Choice agent represents.
A New Independent Agent Channel Resource
At TrustedChoice.com matching is our specialty! Just as we expertly match consumers with Trusted Choice agents and insurance companies, we also continuously look for new ways to match agents with quality insurance companies who are invested in the IA channel.
At the beginning of the year, we launched our new insurance company directory on TrustedChoice.com as a companion to our agent directory for consumers. The directory has already been visited over 840,000 times. Now we are working hard on plans to improve it with an agent focus in mind.
In the next few months we will be launching a TrustedChoice.com IA channel resource center, featuring a market finder tool to help agents find a variety of IA companies by state, insurance products and industry classification. What makes this market finder tool special is that it focuses on insurance companies who back independent agents.
Why Trusted Choice Insurance Companies Work For You
Like the rising tide that lifts all boats, companies who have an active presence on TrustedChoice.com support the entire IA channel. Their active presence on TrustedChoice.com benefits agents in substantial ways, including:
- Positioning their brands on TrustedChoice.com alongside the Trusted Choice national co-brand and tens of thousands of local IA agency brands
- Adding detailed company information to their profiles, thereby improving to the overall SEO strength, credibility, and consumer engagement on TrustedChoice.com
- Identifying their appointed agencies in every city and town so TrustedChoice.com can help consumers find them
