This direct marketing insurance report was prepared by analyzing the data of California insurance agents. Our vast insurance database was carefully analyzed to identify trends, statistics, figures, and other indicators. We reviewed the records of 140,000 California Department Health, Annuity, and Life Insurance Agents. Then, we ran a number of computer data programs on them. It was only then that it was possible to determine how many of the 140,000 brokers were actually in business. Brokering is when agents are willing to place business outside of their primary company as independent agents or fully independent brokers.
First, we match this information to the demand from our clients: state managing general agents, insurance company recruiters, brokers, wholesalers and independent marketing firms. We also review feedback from California-based recruiting firms who have recently promoted their products to California insurance agent.
California is a close second to Florida in terms of ideal state for recruiting. This category is dominated by California’s insurance agents. This is the ratio between total licensed agents and those who independently broker insurance products. Insurance advertisers are often open to offering insurance agents in California.

California has surprisingly few super-sized career agencies with 50 to 35 agents. This is especially true when you compare it with other states. Particularly in the New England region. Agent turnover is significantly lower than usual due to the fact that there are fewer large career agencies. Traffic congestion is a significant factor in the California metropolitan areas. This directly affects how far an agent can travel to reach clients. This also affects their office location, attendance at a seminar or fueling the tank.
This is a rebound effect. California has a higher percentage of home-based General Agents than any other state. This is particularly true in the metropolitan Los Angeles area. Most of California’s General Agents in small offices have made it to the top of the insurance sales ranks.
There are two areas in California where top agents cannot be found. First, the Central area. We refer to it as zip-sectional centers 930-939. The northern region has less competition for recruiting California insurance agents. The zip sections 940-960 are located in the northern part of California. California’s insurance agents don’t receive the intruding telemarketing or unwanted email blasting that their southern counterparts do.
To retain your producer, however, you must ensure that your product is strong. This means that your sales letter to obtain leads to recruit agents must be better than any of your competitors. It is difficult to maintain a strong agent relationship when your smartest competitors are constantly hunting down your top producers.
California agents can make you more money for a unique reason that is often overlooked. Take a look at the average cost to own a home in any new area of California. These housing costs are comparable to those in more upscale areas of the south, Texas or Texas. It is common for the price to be tripled!

It’s a matter of survival. Agents in California need to make lots of money. It is a way to translate production into a need to write powerful premiums and policy after policy.
California is an excellent resource for marketing professionals looking to earn lucrative rewards.
The reverse is true. Take a look at the California insurance agents who are less experienced and more captive. If the new California insurance agent makes $40,000 less in four years than they were earning, then count him or her out. Real estate agents who desire a higher income can make the move to selling insurance in the majority of states. California is the exact opposite. A home worth one million dollars would be sold every three months, which would equal $60,000 minimum. Do you know any California insurance agents who have made more than $50,000 in their first year? It won’t take much to find out. This is why you should forget about the rookies and focus on the pros.
Focusing your recruiting efforts on the smaller counties will help you increase your success. Over 50% of agents live in the five largest counties.
