How does it work?

For SMP’s

Program Managers enrolling in Monday Morning Markets are known as SMP’s (Specialty Market Providers). They will be the “Featured Programs” marketed by Monday Morning Markets’ agencies (1600 agencies will be the maximum number)

Videos

Each SMP will prepare two videos moderated by George Nordhaus or created by the SMP’s marketing team:

  1. A PKV (Product Knowledge Video) explaining the coverages and benefits of the program.
  2. A PSV (Product Sales Video), a tutorial on how best to sell the program to the agent’s clients and prospects.

These videos will permit the prospect to better understand the program (the PKV) and will permit the agency to learn the nuances of the product’s underwriting and sales techniques (the PSV)

The PKV’s will become a valued section on the agencies’ websites.

SMP’s as exclusive coverage provider

ONLY ONE SMP WILL BE APPROVED FOR EACH PROGRAM TYPE AS DEFINED BY ROUGH NOTES “INSURANCE MARKETPLACE” OF 700+ PROGRAMS.

This provides SMP sponsors the unique opportunity of being the ONLY program of its type on Monday Morning Markets as opposed to the “Insurance Marketplace” that lists all programs available for that type of specialty coverage.

Monday Morning Markets will also provide its 1600 agents ongoing marketing education and training, including monthly webinars, so SMP’s can better utilize their exclusive listings with the growing number of Monday Morning Markets agencies.

For Agencies

Monday Morning Markets is FREE to agencies wishing to participate.

MMM has created 1600 territories in the U.S. Agents registering for their home territory will have exclusivity. This means that once a territory is full (one agent for every 200,000 population density) no other agency will be approved for that territory.

A member agency is not limited to marketing and writing only in its territory; it can market the specialty programs found on the Monday Morning Markets site anywhere. But only registered agencies can offer Monday Morning Markets resources on their websites.

The Agency website system

Agencies will be invited to market special programs to prospects through a series of videos for each program (PKV’s – Product Knowledge Videos) that will appear on the agent’s website and will have access to over 700 additional programs through Rough Notes Insurance Marketplace that provides the agencies a list of all providers of that program and contacts for each.

Agency clients and prospects interested in ANY program will be directed to the agent through an automated email and the agency will have an ever-expanding library of marketing and advertising tools for outbound marketing efforts.

AND MONDAY MORNING MARKETS IS FREE TO AGENCIES!!!


Territorial Exclusivity

Only one agency will be appointed by MMM for approximately every 200,000 population density in the U.S.

If a county or group of counties has around 200,000 people in it, only one agency will have Monday Morning Markets available on their website. If the county or county group has, say, 400,000 people, only 2 agencies will have Monday Morning Markets. There will be 1600 territories in the U.S. to be represented by 1600 agencies.

Example of the MMM territorial system:

NOTE: Territories are assigned on a “first-in” basis. Click on the “agencies” link on the top menu (above) and register. If your territory has not been taken and if you meet the qualifications for MMM registration, you will immediately be assigned that territory.
