The Insurance Dudes met back in 2018 when Jason Feltman was fresh to the industry and Craig Pretzinger was in his 10th year as an agent. They came from different backgrounds, yet had the same drive to succeed and positive overall outlook on the future of the agent—that is IF the right strategic moves were made. In those early days, the Dudes were on the phone daily, talking shop: from marketing and sales to hiring and agency culture, these dudes couldn’t get enough talk time ;).
They predicted that a major shift in the landscape of the agency world was underway, and the result of that shift would leave many agents looking for new careers. The Dudes believed that agents would need to grow rapidly to compete with the large captive carriers and lizardish call centers. The big carriers were pumping out billions of marketing dollars with the relentless message that all insurance was the same and cheap was better. They were telling consumers that the agent didn’t matter. While they knew this not to be the case, they also believed that perception is reality. Without a marketing war chest at their disposal to expose the inaccuracies of the cheap insurance companies’ 1984-style marketing machines, they knew there had to be another way for Insurance Dudes and Dudettes to break through!
With the agents’ livelihoods at stake, The Dudes knew their and their peers’ only hopes were to interact with the top players in the agency space and learn from the best of the best. Agents around the industry were shrinking or ejecting from the industry altogether, unable to adapt or find ways to win. The Dudes knew that if they wanted to stay alive, they’d need to gather a ton of intel from the top agents and boil it down into an effective, predictable, and scalable strategy, supported by measurable tactics to ensure theirs and their peers’ success.
Craig and Jason realized that they could make a difference in their space, by cutting through the doom and gloom and helping agents control the things they had control over, and help them adapt to the things they could not. Like Episode 4 they had become their industry’s New Hope.
This message of, and desire to help, was what birthed The Insurance Dudes Podcast. <links> It launched as a beacon for all agents across the country (and globally—they’re surprisingly big in Greece) to learn, develop, and win at insurance marketing, sales, and hiring. The Podcast’s purpose was to be the best resource for agents in the industry and to help agents compress their learning curve to achieve exceptional results. They built the #1 podcast in the industry from scratch by dedicating their time and energy to delivering episode after episode of actionable content.
Mr Jason and Mr Craig had tried almost every gimmick, lead, and coaching platform. They realized there wasn’t anything in their world that truly served the agency owner with a crystal-clear path to exceptional results, from end-to-end.
Meanwhile, The Dudes were creating a community of like-minded and positive agents who were all interested in elevating each others’ skills and success. They developed and delivered a long-term strategy that would work with any agency size, and any agent who believed in and trusted the process. The only caveat? They must have the burning desire to bring positivity and a 100% all-in commitment to the process and leave all their old habits at the door.
In 2020, during the world’s darkest hour, where global pandemic and political insanity were converging like an episode of Walking Dead, they published their 200th Insurance Dudes Podcast Episode. Simultaneously, these Dudes launched the TeleDudes to ignite and fuel the result of agents who were committed to becoming Elite Insurance Dudes.
They introduced the world’s first TeleFunnel to the industry, modeled after everything they’d learned from the last two years of meeting agents, and testing their strategies. The Dudes, now writing over $500,000 per month in combined premium were releasing their knowledge into the wild! Their simple and foolproof strategy would save the everyday agent just when they needed it most.
In a time of “great uncertainty” when agents were falling by the wayside, the Insurance Dudes and Dudettes Elite Members banded together to lift each other out of the pit of despair and into the coveted $100k/month Elite Dude Status.
A team of TeleDudes, coupled with the Peak Performance Challenge (the all-secrets revealed step-by-step course on how to execute a Tele-Funnel Telemarketing strategy), helped agents who were previously fighting a losing fight, not only to stay alive, but helped them to write more premium in a month than they had previously, all year long.
Elite Dudes Agents transformed their scarcity mindsets, fearful of “expenses,” to abundance mindsets embracing the notion of betting on themselves. These Elite Dudes were proud to grow their agencies and to earn buy-in from their teams. TeleDudes Elite Dudes members maximized their wealth and took advantage of the opportunity that so many other agents were blind to. Because of the Insurance Dudes, thousands of Local Agents were reclaiming the throne!
