Today is launch day.


Hasn’t Agency Nation been live since August?


On August 13th, 2014, a renegade group of employees secretly undertook a black-ops project to create the insurance industry’s first channel agnostic community dedicated to growing an insurance business.

A week later, Agency Nation was born.

Agency Nation beta.

We decided to quietly “soft-launch” Agency Nation in a beta version using WordPress, the free open-source website platform.

From the beginning, we wanted the spirit of Agency Nation not to embody what the insurance industry has been or what it is today, but rather what we, as an industry, want it to be. This belief extends beyond just the ideas we share, to the technology and platform we use to share them.

What Is Agency Nation?

Agile. Authentic. Enthusiastic. Authoritative. Innovative.

These are the principles we believe will guide the insurance industry into the future.

These are principles on which we’ll build Agency Nation.

At its core, Agency Nation is two things:

  • Insurance industry focused media company
  • Training, coaching and consulting practice

Agency Nation – The media company

Agency Nation is not designed as a “News” source from the traditional standpoint. Not that we won’t discuss the issues impacting the industry, but as a media resource for agents, we’ve chosen to focus on actionable commentary and “How-to” articles that take insurance professionals away from the “What” and towards “Where” and “How.”

Take a look at How to Prepare for Google Entering the Insurance Market for an example of how we’re working to create conversations around trending topics in our industry.

Agency Nation – The training, coaching and consulting firm

The Agency Nation platform is dedicated to provide structured resources and training exercises to help insurance professionals educate themselves on the sales, marketing and automation activities that will grow their business.

We’re going to deliver these resources through a FREE content library called the Pathfinder Content Library.

The first resource we’ve added to the Pathfinder Content Library is an extensive eBook detailing Local SEO.

Over time, we’ll be adding more exclusive resources in the form of webinars, expert interviews and video training courses to help insurance professionals better understand the tools, tactics and strategies needed to dominate online.

Did we mention the Pathfinder Content Library is free?


Believe it or not, but these are the guys steering the Agency Nation ship:

From beta to Bonanza

Six months ago, Agency Nation was just an idea.

Today, without an official launch or true marketing push, we have received:

  • Over 14,000 visitors
  • Over 1,300 email subscribers
  • Over 75 comments

In its beta version, Agency Nation is quickly becoming a vibrant community of insurance professionals discussing the issues impacting our industry. We’re pushing the conversation forward. We’re growing as an industry.

This is just the beginning.

The beta version of Agency Nation was always meant to be just that, beta.

Today starts our journey to bonanza.

Today starts our march towards moving the needle as insurance professionals, as individual businesses, and as an industry.

More ideas.

More transparency.

More conversations.

More success.

Come along for this ride.

Join Agency Nation and dominate your insurance marketplace.

Thank you and good luck,

I am Ryan Hanley
