Magic Number

    • Required Monthly Income (RMI)
      • What is your monthly overhead?
        • Add up all bills, rents, personal and business
      • Multiply by 1.35 for taxes
        • $4000 x 1.35 = $5400 (RMI)
    • Calculate Required Monthly Premium (RMP)
      • Take RMI and divide  by your contracted rate
        • $5400/.70 = $7714.29
      • Multiply RMI by 10(or by average commission rate from carrier)
        • $7714.29 x 10 = $77,142.90 (RMP)
    • Average annual premium for your clients
      • Management system can help you determine this
      • Home and auto will be less than commercial
      • For example $2000 premium per policy (PPP)
    • You Magic Number
      • Take your RPM divide it by PPP
      • $77,142.90/$2000 = 38.5 Magic Number
      • If you focus on commercial your PPP will be larger and you Magic Number will be smaller
    • This should be your goal per month
      • Means you need to write 2 policies per day to meet your goal of 40 ish policies per month
      • Means you need to talk to 6 people per day about insurance to close 2 for each of the 20 working days in the month.
    • If you double your efforts and talk to 12 people per day
      • Close 4 per day
      • You could earn $15k per month
      • This doesn’t even include renewals or broker fees
      • Balls in your court
