The Killing Commercial Insurance Program

Who Is Killing Commercial for?

Independent insurance agents and agency owners who want to build a million dollar recurring book of business, connect with other like-minded producers from around the country and become the go-to mid-market insurance expert in their area.

What's Included

Online Education & Resources

Through our online, on-demand training videos and associated collateral library, our community members are able to drastically reduce the learning curve. Through our “implement as you go” training style, producers and agency principals are able to compete a segment of their training and have a work product that is ready to execute in their firm in real time.

A Private Social Network

In addition to the typical newsfeed and profile driven social interaction, Killing Commercial Insurance also has a Virtual War Room.  Inside the War Room, community members are able to enter discussions in real time without the fear of competition.  Each firm admitted into the Killing Commercial curriculum is awarded a radius of exclusivity.  That is the secret sauce.  Because there is never fear of competition, the community members are able to collaborate openly and lift each other up in an effort to propel them toward success.  This social network alone differentiates Killing Commercial from nearly every other insurance training program available.

1 on 1 Sales Support

In addition to our education and social network, members are able and encouraged to schedule time with a member of the Killing Commercial team for 1 on 1 consulting.  This could include anything from advice on specific deals to effective ways to build and manage your agency team.

Bi-Monthly Mastermind

Each month, there are two live webinars lead by David to discuss topics and specific deal situations requested by Killing Commercial community members.  In addition, David will bring on special guests that are thought leaders in their industry.  Future guests include: LInkedin Marketing gurus, business etiquette coaches, video leveraging experts and more.  These calls are private and available only to active community members.  While attendance is not mandatory, it is definitely encouraged.  If you are not able to attend, the recorded versions will be posted in the appropriate place in the community.

David and the Killing Commercial program have far exceeded my expectations. My thought process has changed from the typical call 100, quote 10, write 2 mindset where I wasn't providing anything other than a quote and competing on price, to one where I am providing extreme value for the client, even before meeting them, and looking at the whole picture. I have tried different "programs" and methods, and I can say this is the single best thing I have done for my agency by a long shot.
