Getting Business Insurance Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

It used to be so much tougher to be a small business owner. Even a generation ago, running a business was a much more challenging, riskier, and time-consuming affair. Today we have tools like Allstate’s new online Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) quoting and purchasing app (which I will get to in a moment), but before that, let’s not forget the bad old days.

Think about it. Back then, there was very little help, everything took a lot more time, and business was much more of a gamble. Mistakes were costly, results were not guaranteed.

Today, we expect everything to be easier, faster and better.

That’s why Allstate designed a better way. As a modern businessperson, you need things to be quick, simple, and convenient and that’s exactly what this new BOP tool is. It combines the best of the old way (personal service) with the best of the new (online and fast.)

Here’s how it works: Allstate just introduced its new online business insurance quoting tool. You can find it on and With online quoting, you can answer a few questions and instantly get a quote for your business insurance. The whole process takes about five minutes.

But that’s not all. This online quoting tool pairs you with an Allstate commercial certified agent. Industry practice leaders display first – these agents have industry specialization and understand the unique risks you face. Combined, what you should find is that you are not only able to get a quick quote for your business insurance needs, but you will be in contact with a trusted advisor who can help guide throughout the process and answer whatever questions you may have.

One thing I know is that the businesses who have partnered here at Small Business Connection are truly committed to small business, and you can see that with this alternative and better way to get business insurance. It is a great new technology that lets you get a fast, easy, and convenient quote through a desktop and mobile self-service model.
