What We Earn
For business insurance policies we earn a percentage of premium when a new policy is sold or an existing policy is renewed. This base commission varies from 10% to 25% depending upon the product line and the insurer. In addition, based on the loss performance of the policies that we have sold, we may also earn additional compensation, which is not guaranteed. That compensation is determined based on the profit (if any) which is generated over time by all of the small business insurance policies we have placed with a particular insurance company. Some of our marketing expenses are also reimbursed.
