How to be auto insurance agent that sells more than 1 brand of auto insurance product?

I am interested in becoming an auto insurance agent. I want to do this part time, but I don'-t know how to get started? I can go to school to get the degree to sell insurance, but how do you get the connections to sell the various types of insurance ?

First, you have to get a property and casualty insurance license. That entails pre-licensing education credits and successfully passing the state exam.You won't be able to start your own agency, if that is what you are thanking. Insurance companies appoint agents to sell their products. If you don't have an agency appointment you can't sell their insurance. Companies are very picky when it comes to authorizing who will represent them. I can assure you that they will not appoint an agent who is starting from scratch and is intending to sell insurance part time.Instead you will need to find a job as an agent with an insurance agency that already has those critical agency appointments. Learn the ropes, develop a book of business (clients) and at some point you might be able to think about starting your own agency. Maybe.Good luck and best wishes.Source(s):...

That's called, an "independent" agent. Since you have no idea, the best place to start, would be working as a producer, for another independent agent, where you'd learn the business, and get the connections.Additionally, in order to get an appointment, most insurance companies will require that you ALREADY have an existing book of business, preferably at least six figures that you're willing to commit to them, and a proven track record of being able to sell insurance (because most agents wash out).If you plan on starting from scratch, it will take YEARS before you have enough on the books to get a SECOND insurance company.

can be up to 30 days, but if you cancelled by request, there may be a penalty-it's called shortrating and yes it's legal- look in the back of your policy jackets, everyone, and you'll see 'may charge any fees in effect at the time of cancellation'

I'm sorry, but I can't get really excited about your skills, though I suspect that they are considerable. You have hit-the-mark on a few entries (e.g., "consistently produced sales above the national average) but mostly you put in "motherhood and apple-pie" type comments and don't provide...
