Here we are with the first in what we hope to be a long line of Agent-focused blogs. They may range from tips and lists to deep dives into the industry of merchant processing and sales. However, to jump start this adventure, we’ll start with a more basic but crucial topic: Why we need you, our agents.

FlashBanc is among America’s fastest growing privately-owned companies. We process billions of dollars worth of transactions a year, and that number is only rising. This is due, in large part, to the business model we pride ourselves on. More importantly, this is due to the agents that we are honored to be partnered with, day-in and day-out. Our agents are the arms, legs, and face of the company. FlashBanc offers it’s merchants support for any and every problem they could encounter in processing their transactions, and more. We offer countless products to match their transaction needs, and many programs to help them build their business and increase profits. However, none of that support would matter were it not for our agents. FlashBanc’s agents are the reason we are partnered with so many businesses. They are the reason we can assist so many consumers with their purchases and businesses with their sales. Agents are the crucial connection between our resources and theirs.

To say that our agents are our brand is no overstatement. It’s a matter of fact. To help make the point, consider the following:

FlashBanc’s marketing department can make posts on social media, a podcast, maybe even some blog for our merchants, until it’s blue in the face and has carpal tunnel. However, there is no guarantee that a single merchant will see any of that effort. This is where you, the agent, come in. You see, while a merchant may not see every marketing effort we make, you can be our missionary going from business to business, ensuring that they hear about us. We understand that the difficulty that our agents face on a day-to-day basis. Not every merchant is willing to listen and if they do, there is no guarantee that they will work with you. There are many within the profession that give salesmen and saleswomen a bad reputation. However, unlike those scammy MLMs that try to sell their useless snake oil, you present actual solutions to merchants and play a critical role in the processing industry.

The point is our agents are important to us, nay, critical to us. We rely on you to be our messenger, going from business to business spreading the word of FlashBanc. Without you, this organization would not be possible. This is why we are dedicated to supporting you in your every effort. This is more than just a partnership. It’s a relationship where FlashBanc, our merchants, and our agents all work together to continue growing and improving. As we continue to support you, we hope that you will continue reaching out to merchants, providing solutions to their problems, and being the bridge between FlashBanc and small businesses.
