Hi Agent! Thank you for your kind words. Please feel to reach out with any suggestions! We want you to continue to be happy here! -Alisha Leavelle
Hi Agent! I'm sorry to hear that you are not able to successfully sell on our platform. I will say you are in the minority, and therefore, perhaps it's not the leads, as everyone works with the same leads. You're saying you're not even closing one per week, when running a quick report, I see that our average agent during OEP closed 7 to 10 sales per week. And that's our average sales persons- our top earnings closed 30 and above during the first week of December! In addition, while OEP is fun because there are a lot of easy closes, many of our agents enjoy SEP more because they earn more per sale than during OEP.
I would love for our sales management team to sit down with you, perhaps even shadow you for a few hours, to figure out what's missing. There's a number of things it could be, but if you truly aren't receiving enough "good" leads, it could be the states you're in- not enough states, or not high lead states. There are lots of things we can do to work on getting your sales numbers up. Please feel free to reach out to me directly so I can connect you with a sales manager and get you shadowed! Since all of our tech, support, and marketing is free to you, we are not successful unless you're successful, so of course we want to do whatever we can to make sure you're making sales!! -Alisha Leavelle, ALeavelle@IdealConcepts.com
Thanks Agent! You've got a great sales strategy and attitude. We're lucky to have agents who value our platform! -Alisha Leavelle
Thank you for your feedback/review. We love hearing from current agents! We understand the uncertainty agents have about the individual market, and we appreciate your confidence in our ability to pivot and adapt. That's our speciality!
In response to your suggestion on life insurance, it's definitely one of our goals. Expect a life department to be launched within the next few years.
Unfortunately, I suspect this is a fraudulent review. We do not have, and have never had, a "Licensing Coordinator". We do have a Licensing team, but their manager is a woman, not a man. In addition, all of our Licensing team members have been at their positions for more than a year and this reviewer identifies themselves as a "former employee". If this is in fact an agent who mistakenly identified themselves as a "Licensing Coordinator", as well as an "employee" (our agents are contractors), then I apologize for any issues you may have had. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any complaints. We welcome the opportunity to receive constructive feedback! -Alisha Leavelle, ALeavelle@IdealConcepts.com

Hi! I'm so sorry to hear that you haven't been making the compensation you expected, and I'm disheartened to hear that you're not where you'd like to be. Obviously our goal is to make every agent successful, and we are disappointed whenever an agent can't meet their income goals.
I would like to first point out that you stated around 20 people a day are closing 3+, and then you say that means "180 people are selling less than TWO policies a day", which is incorrect. Perhaps you meant to say that means "180 people are selling less than THREE a day", which is closer to correct. (Although you also did misstate the number of agents we have selling per day.) In fact, our average agent sells 1.9 policies a day, year round. That, plus our average cross sell rate, nets you just over $100,000 per year. In fact, the agents closing 3+ clients a day, with our average cross sell rate, are netting closer to $200,000 per year.
Without going into too much detail because this would be an even longer post: Our average health sale nets a commission to the agent of approximately $407 for the year. This includes the average of ACA vs. Short Term policies being sold, the average cross sell and the average retention rate. If you do the math, if an agent actually worked every business day of the year, they would make well over $100K a year. However, most agents obviously do not work every business day of the year. If you reach out to me personally, I'd love to go over an exact breakdown of our commissions in detail: ALeavelle@IdealConcepts.com.
If you are not tracking $100,000 per year, you should reach out to our sales management team to figure out what how they can help you get to that average closing and cross sell rate.
One last point- please remember that most clients don't only input their information on one website when shopping for insurance, because they think the more places they reach out, the more choices they'll get. We cannot control how many websites a client gets a quote from; we can only control the leads we generate ourselves, which are exclusive to us. If they are getting calls from other lead generation sites, they can mistakenly think they are all coming from the same source. Thank you for your feedback and please feel free to reach out to me through email to further discuss your concerns! -Alisha Leavelle less
Hi Agent! This review looks very similar to another review posted on here, so I'm wondering if it's the same agent. If so, please reach out to me personally to see if there's anything I can do to help. Obviously you are unhappy here, and that's so disappointing to hear. I'd love to set up some extra training, one on one with a sales manager, to see if there's something we can do to help you become more successful.
We obviously have a lot of successful agents here, and our average agent is making between $90-$120K. If you are tracking below that, then you are below average, and I'd like to see what we can do to get you above that. To be honest, if you're truthfully tracking below $50K, you're actually losing us money, based on the free leads, tech, training and support we provide. We don't start generating any revenue on an agent until they are tracking well above that, since our operating costs are so high. Because of our high level of commitment, we are very selective in our hiring process, and selective with the agents we choose to continue to support. I'd be very surprised to hear an agent who is working 40 hours a week is selling less than one to two sales per day during SEP. Usually agents who are struggling like that are pulled into trainings by our sales managers. As you know, we don't make money if you don't make money.
To reiterate, $35K a year is completely unacceptable, both for us as an organization and you as an agent. PLEASE reach out to your sales managers with your complaints. They enjoy helping agents become successful; that's their entire purpose. Or feel free to email me directly so I can work on getting you more support and/or training ASAP! -Alisha Leavelle, ALeavelle@IdealConcepts.com less
I am so disappointed to read this! This is not what our company stands for or believes in. We pride ourselves in providing every single agent with a great opportunity. I know each of our three sales managers cares deeply about their brokers, and works diligently to help each individual agent succeed. Your success is their success, and your failure is also theirs.
In regards to locked leads, it is not the sales managers who make decisions there- we have an examination process conducted by our administrative manager to determine who really owns a lead. Locked leads are never passed to another agent without thorough investigation and a clear reason, and even that is very rare.
Please reach out to me at ALeavelle@IdealConcepts.com to discuss your concerns in more detail. Even if you are done working with us, I relish feedback that I can pass along to management.
