What Is Advantage Professional?

Become an Advantage Professional agency and get access to all Advantage features—including Claim-it Referrals sent right to you.
January 11, 2022

Advantage Professional is the subscription type that sits at the top of the Advantage hierarchy. An Advantage Professional subscription allows independent agencies to be recommended (like with the Advantage Preferred subscription) as well as referred, which is a perk exclusive to only Advantage Professional subscribers. Advantage Professional agencies are…

  • Referred to high-intent organic insurance shoppers
  • Referred to shoppers who match the agency’s business appetite
  • Referred to shoppers who asked to speak with the agency specifically

But what does it mean to be referred with Advantage Professional?

All About Advantage Professional

Advantage Professional comes with the bells and whistles of every other Advantage subscription, allowing the agency to load their profile with contact information, team members, logos, ratings and reviews, a credibility badge listing the agency as a Trusted Choice agency, business appetite preferences and more to allow matching shoppers the full scope of the agency’s practice.

The strength of Advantage Professional is the ability to be referred to high-intent insurance shoppers, meaning the agency’s profile is outfitted with call-to-actions to better attract shoppers and an online scheduler that allows the shopper to select a time slot at their own convenience. When a shopper opts to work with an Advantage Professional agency, that agency will receive an instant referral notification alerting them of new business so they might have a head start on building the consumer-agency relationship and closing the deal.

Get instant referral notifications with Advantage Professional

To top all of this digital greatness off, Advantage Professional is the only Advantage subscription to include Claim-it® Referrals. Claim-it Referrals are hot, high-intent, appetite-matching, exclusive, inbound, local referrals sent directly to the Advantage Professional agent’s inbox. These referrals operate on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning no other agent may compete for a Claim-it Referral after it has been purchased.
