At FFS, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to serve their community in the financial services industry. We have developed the FFS Business Building System to set every one of our agents on the track to success as an entrepreneur. Our system revolves around three core principles of entrepreneurship: Build a business, Sell the products and Lead your team.
Our businesses are made up of talented people who share the vision of helping people achieve financial security and peace of mind. While you can be successful as a solitary salesperson, the power behind building a business lies in getting others to join in your success. With a team behind you, there is no limit to the income you can generate with FFS.
Work with a dedicated team as early as possible to keep your overall production steady. A stable business won’t fall apart if you get sick, take a vacation or have an off month. We guide you through every step of building your team, from prospecting to presenting the opportunity, to quickly onboarding new associates using our Success TracksTM system and training seasoned agents with our ongoing courses.
Building a strong team is crucial, but giving people financial security and peace of mind with insurance products is the heart of our business. FFS works hard to ensure you have access to top-tier products and fair compensation — and our agents’ sales figures are comparable to those at traditional agencies. Our system gives you the flexibility to provide each client and their family with a solution specific to their needs. Unlike a traditional agency, you are not tied to a handful of products — you have access to our trusted carrier partners, each with unique products that can address your client’s specific needs.
Whether you are new to financial services or an industry veteran, we have training programs to help you sell with FFS. Learn directly from our partner companies in our Carriers’ Corner webinar series, become an expert in annuities with our Annuity Hour webinars and master the ins and outs of insurance sales in our Get Selling Success Tracks course. Our robust sales training makes working in financial services more accessible and helps you lead your team to high-quality and successful production.
Strong leadership is key to a well-run business, but it can be hard to know the right way to lead. It takes the right information to make the decisions that will guide your team to success. Our Agent Back Office Dashboard gives you insight into every team member’s performance and every sale’s progress — just what you need to plan out every day. You’ll be able to set goals for your team, see if they’re meeting them and correct their course when needed. We give you the tools to motivate your team, reward their excellence and address problems head on.
From the moment someone joins your team, Success Tracks will help you coach them to success with strong training. With FFS, leading well isn’t a mystery to be solved, but a plan to be followed. We train you in leadership so that every agent can excel at building their business.
No matter the amount of training needed, our field leaders help onboard new agents with a proven process that ensures every new team member is up and writing business as quickly as possible. Teamwork and one-on-one coaching are top priorities to ensure that everyone from industry newcomers to seasoned veterans adapt to the FFS system successfully.
NO INTERNAL COMPETITION
With traditional agencies, you’re often in competition with the agents sitting next to you and you’ll always be working for the business owner. With our model, everyone has an interest in boosting team production. Everyone can get the top contract, not just the firm’s owner. Without an incentive to leave the team to acquire better contracts and compensation, team members stick around longer and enjoy a more collaborative model of business ownership.
Other business models result in the person at the top of the ladder making twice as much as others with no explanation as to how or why it became that way. FFS has an equal-contract system that provides a blueprint for your compensation and promotion, with milestones along the way that make it easy to understand exactly how much you can make and when, even surpassing the person whose team you joined. Get paid for the work that you do and the success you’ve achieved.
DISCIPLINE AND EXPERTISE
At FFS, we take our responsibility to our clients seriously. We believe in providing financial security, not recruiting with empty promises. To succeed, our agents must understand our products and offer solutions for their clients, not simply build large teams. We focus on training and making the transition into this industry as easy as possible, with great content, effective coaching and strong administrative support. This is why our agents’ commissions rival those of traditional agencies — our goal is to make every FFS agent a strong member of the financial services community.
Our Business Building System goes beyond simple recruiting and doesn’t stop at merely selling. FFS strives to eliminate the harder parts of starting a business — administration, technology and training — by providing the resources our agents need to build the strongest businesses they can. We help you get licensed, build your team, and get started writing business within your first 90 days as an FFS agent — because with a proven system, any entrepreneur can find success in financial services.
Our system goes beyond just recruiting and just selling. It’s truly the best of both worlds.
