We show insurance professionals and agency principals how they can grow their businesses by developing strategic marketing plans, deploying effective sales initiatives, and supporting the professional development of their colleagues.
We are the antithesis of the 'one-size-fits-all' approach - we develop programs specifically for each client! We go beyond the all too common 'what you should be doing' approach, and work with our clients on 'how it is actually done' so that they can realistically achieve the results that are important to them!
We were established in 2008 in Portland Oregon. We have over 17,000 subscribers comprised of insurance professionals of all practice disciplines nationwide. We provide our services to clients across North America, Europe and Australia.
We primarily work with insurance agencies and brokerages of all practice specialties with annual revenues in excess of $5M of net commissions and fees and carriers, wholesalers and third party vendor solutions serving the US domestic market.
We believe in hard work and 'doing the right thing' no matter what. We don't believe in quick fixes, or 'short term' solutions to remedy 'long term' problems, and, there is no such thing as 'secret sauce!'
We build, we consult, we train, we coach, we provide resources and vendor solutions, we share our industry connections, we stress the fundamentals of the business and help our clients achieve the results they seek.
THE RAINMAKER DIFFERENCE:
Our services are provided by an advisory team with experience and nationally recognized accomplishments within retail insurance broking.
Our experience was derived through our own business development work at local agencies and regionals, as well as our previous service in leadership positions with national and global insurance broking concerns. We understand business development and how to grow a book of business. We understand how to build agencies and operate them profitably.
Our practical experience differentiates us from other sales and agency consulting firms; which is why we generate results for our clients - every time.
