The Insurance Industry is really one of the most misunderstood career opportunities in the job marketplace today. The business of writing insurance, even though deglamorized by some people, is a very financially rewarding career opportunity for the right person and offers a great deal of personal satisfaction to those that turn it into a full-time career.
Why Life Insurance?
Selling life insurance is an exciting opportunity because of the pure amount of potential clients for the various products and services available. Being associated with Greenway gives you unparalleled competitive advantages in the marketplace, no matter where you choose to focus and grow your business. There isn’t a single person you know who doesn’t own some type of insurance; whether its life, health, auto, home, renters, Medicare supplement, etc. Generally speaking, insurance is a "replacement product" type of sale. In other words, people are already spending a monthly premium for basic goods and services. So, if you can offer a better plan with better benefits and for less money, why wouldn’t a client switch?
Final Expense is Our Bread and Butter!
Greenway lives and breathes life insurance, particularly Final Expense! It is easy for a newly licensed insurance agent to get overwhelmed with the various channels of revenue at their disposal, and while dipping your hands in as many cookie jars as possible may sound like the best idea, it is actually a more dangerous road to head down than you might think. Trying to juggle too many policies and carriers can lead to confusion and wipe out especially when you are just getting started and trying to find your groove in this industry.
What most successful agents have discovered as a solution to this problem is to focus their sales on a specific niche that is both lucrative and simple to master with the right dedication and effort. Final expense has proven to be the best targeted niche for newly licensed agents. In fact, it can be so lucrative and successful that many agents find themselves sticking to it long term and making a solid career out of selling final expense policies!
Final Expense is a great niche for life insurance agents because the plans are the most practical and affordable for the average person. They sell the most, plain and simple. This is a numbers game, and in an industry where their is a lot of competition, you need the most opportunity at your disposal. This is where Greenway Insurance comes in to help.

100% Telesales Opportunity!
Most people aren’t aware that probably 50% of all business written in the insurance industry today is now done completely over the phone. Of course, face to face sales is still applicable in many situations, but we have many agents that do all of their business from the convenience of their own home or completely from our offices located in St. Peters, MO and Lake of the Ozarks, MO. Either way, we offer all of the technology and training solutions needed to start your own business selling insurance.
COMMISSIONS & INCENTIVES:
Independent Agent Status:
Greenway gives you access to the most competitive contracts in the insurance industry. Don’t be trapped with a captive career company that sometimes leaves you trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Why not have a multitude of companies to choose from so you can deliver the proper product 100% of the time? This increases your income and ability to create an endless stream of referrals.
Quality Carrier Contracts:
Greenway has contracted with the best companies in the insurance industry to help you promote your business. We have contracts with over a thousand different companies, almost all of them you have heard of before. Quality carriers, with superior products, who offer tremendous service, is what drives the heart of the insurance sales process. With Greenway as your compass, you can always find the right solution for your client.
Commission Income Advances:
We pay monthly, weekly, and even daily commission advances depending on the type of policies you are selling through our agency and your Agent status. As a Broker Agent you are technically self-employed, so you make the decision as to what products you’re marketing. We suggest you start your business with a very focused effort pertaining to the line of business you want to start marketing, but then as you get more secure you can expand into other areas at your own pace and only when or if you feel like the time is right. We have Broker Agents making over one hundred thousand dollars their very first year of business with barely any overhead expense, except for discounted, quality lead purchases. It’s crazy to think you can write a $100.00 a month plan and make up to a $1,000 dollar advance in three business days, but this happens everyday in our business.
The Secrete sauce: Trails/Renewals:
Let's not forget one of the most beautiful parts of selling insurance...the renewals! Did you know you can get paid on an insurance policy for as long as the policyholder keeps the policy you sold them? We have agents who have established a pipeline and are making thousands of dollars a month simply living off of trails! It’s very comforting to think you can get a commission today for work you did ten years ago. This is what makes being in this business so worthwhile! What other line of work can you say provides you with that type of financial security even if you stop writing business?!
Company Incentive Trips/Bonuses:
Have you ever been to Australia, Italy, London, Portugal, Jamaica, and Caribbean Cruise, all for just doing your job? Have you ever been paid a ten thousand dollar bonus just because you’re doing a great thing, helping people who need help? Successful agents who rise to the top receive bonuses of this magnitude and go on carrier incentive trips all of the time!!! Being a successful insurance agent isn't easy. It takes hard work and dedication. But, with the right agency to partner with and the right mindset to get you there, you can rise to the top and be well on your way to reaping rewards that are unprecedented in comparison to most other career choices out there.
