What is an FMO?
Do agents need an FMO?
An FMO (field marketing organization) is commonly known as an IMO (insurance marketing organization) or NMO (national marketing organization). FMO’s help insurance agents and agencies with top-level contracts for multiple product lines, digital marketing assistance, lead generation tools, enrollment & quoting technology, one-on-one consultations with market managers, individualized agent growth plans, agency building programs, compliance reviews & assistance, and much more. FMO’s should not hold their insurance agent or agency partners captive. Agent Pipeline offers an open release policy with no strings attached. Agents who utilize the relationship with an FMO, like Agent Pipeline, receive dedicated back office support including assisting with re-certification & exclusive training opportunities, handling commissions, compliance, or any other escalated issues on behalf of the agent or agency. Agent Pipeline also helps to offer their agent and agency partners with individual FMO representatives to help build a personal relationship that caters to the agent’s specific market, unique needs and unlimited growth opportunities. The FMO representative will assist agents by providing reminders for licensing & appointments, commission and production audits, training sessions, and customizable marketing materials.
