The leading online voice for the independent agency system
One of the attendees at the Boston Insurtech that Agency Checklists is looking forward to meeting in person is Ryan Hanley, the Chief Marketing Office of TrustedChoice.com. In addition to his role with TrustedChoice.com, he is also the Editor-in-Chief of Agency Nation and a thought leader on independent agents competing and thriving in the new world of Insurtech.
Since its inception four years ago, Agency Nation has grown into the preeminent online voice for the independent agent. In partnership with TrustedChoice.com, Agency Nation seeks to help insurance professionals build their inbound referral engine to compete with what some Insurtech startups offer.
Besides its website, packed with free targeted content, Agencynation.com, Agency Nation provides a wide range of content tailored to the independent agency system including its Facebook page, podcasts, articles, and its own YouTube Channel, “Agency Nation–YouTube.
For independent agents looking for advanced training to master Google search and local search engine optimization (SEO), Agency Nation offers paid course through its Agency Nation University.
In 2017, Agency Nation also began “Elevate”, its an annual “Unconference” for independent agents. This year’s 2018 Elevate conference is scheduled for June 24-26, in Cleveland. The initial conference received rave reviews from its agency attendees and the 2018 conference is already a sellout.
