    Hi all,

    I have recently been appointed to sell P&C to diversify my agency's income.

    I have 22 years of experience selling Individual and Group Health and Medicare Supplements / Advantage plans. But must admit the home and auto are NEW to me.

    Is there any P&C 101 threads to read on this forum?

    Where can I find good how to's or online training?

    Any suggestions welcomed.

    Not sure what your Safeco site looks like but when we log into our Safeco there is a page with all sorts of training, the tab says "sell and grow" there is prospecting, cross selling, agency csr, etc

    Safeco is becoming the Progressive of town. They will appoint anyone for a chance to write some business.

    Correction, I have 22 + years of Insurance Sales experience and book of business 1000 members strong.

    I'm tempted to tell you where to go, but will instead try to read into your infinite wisdom

    Sorry, I thought my question was clear. How did you get a safeco appointment with no home or auto experience?

    Apparently (not this post), anyone can now get an appointment w/ Safeco as long as you are not in a coastal area and have a pulse.

    Honestly, I told them what I just told you. I have many years of experience, a large book of business and a desire to diversify my agency due to the Affordable Care Act. I also told them I was being recruited by several large agencies in my area but wanted to remain independent.

    You sound like me, I started my agency in the end of 2011 because we saw trouble on the horizon for health insurance. Safeco was one of my first appointments along with Progressive. Best decision I ever made to diversify.
