    Brightway is a business opportunity that empowers you to reach your potential, build wealth, help others achieve their potential and build a legacy. The entire system is designed to produce win-win-win outcomes for you, your family and your customers.

Independent Agent

  • What kind of experience do I need to have in order to join this program?

    The Independent Agent program is a short-term, commission-based program in which you can earn a fully financed franchise fee to join our Office Agent franchise opportunity. Because of this, you must have Personal Lines sales experience and ideally you have a proven track record of building referral sources to drive new business sales.

  • What is the commission split?

    The commission split in the Independent Agent program (50% new/50% renewal) is designed to provide you with profitability as early as possible.

  • Can you describe the training I will receive?

    As an Independent Agent, you will already have experienced in Personal Lines sales. The training you’ll receive will be focused on Brightway’s technology, systems and processes.

  • Can you tell me more about the support I will receive with Brightway?

    You will receive initial and ongoing training and your customers’ after-the-sale service will be provided by our Service Center. As you know, servicing existing customers can be time consuming—and the more successful you are in sales, the more customers you’ll have to service. By providing industry-leading customer service after-the-sale, you’re empowered to sell more new business.

  • How exactly does Brightway service my customers?

    It’s not just about providing customers the service they need, but the customer experience that they want. As soon as you sell a policy to a new customer, their service needs are handled by a world-class customer experience team at Brightway’s Home Office in Jacksonville, Fla. Although the customer experience team is in Jacksonville, you position them as your back-office service department and they provide seamless service to your customers, referring opportunities for customers’ additional policy needs back to you.

  • Tell me about the contract length and what happens when I want to renew.

    The Independent Agent program is a short-term, commission-based program in which you can earn a fully financed franchise fee to join our Office Agent franchise opportunity. The length of the initial term is six months with an opportunity to renew it, free of charge, for one additional six-month term.
