Tips from Successful Insurance Agents to Help You Grow
What makes some insurance agents successful and others not? Believe it or not habits have a lot to do with it. Minor adjustments to your routine, methodology and philosophies can dictate your activities and success.
Here are some habits that could help you succeed at insurance sales.
Take time to self-assess. Think about your week, month or day – but allow yourself time to reflect and decompress.
Surround Yourself with Successful Friends
It’s important to surround yourself with people that are headed in the direction you want to be headed in. Surrounding yourself with people who are motivated and passionate about the same things can help motivate and inspire you.
No, that doesn’t mean skip meals. Highly effective insurance agents are hungry for success. Life rewards those who take risks and take action. To win the insurance game you need to give it your all, and have no regrets.
Make Yourself Available
Insurance is a highly competitive market, so it’s important to leverage anything that can give you an edge on the competition. Consumers want and expect customer service. They also expect to receive attention when they want it, not when it’s necessarily convenient for you. Part of being a successful insurance agent means being available for clients. That could mean hiring a call center for after hours calls, text message communication or Facebook chat.
Successful insurance agents care about their clients. Rather than being a pushy sales person, successful agents listen and understand client needs. There are plenty of insurance companies focused on providing the cheapest insurance, and you may lose some clients to those competitors. However, good customer service goes along way when it comes to retention and cross-selling.
Buy Quality Insurance Leads
Buying insurance leads helps agents close more deals in less time. You could prospect your own leads, but that takes hours – and wastes days each month. By purchasing insurance leads, you reduce prospecting time – time that you could spend closing deals and providing customer service.
