How To Conduct A Successful Annuity
...to Collect One
Million of Annuity Premiums Each Month!
Are you wondering how the Top 1% of all
Annuity Producers are still able to consistently collect $1,000,000 or more
of fixed, indexed and variable annuity premiums each and every month using
annuity seminars, when everyone else is saying that annuity seminars are
And, how they are still doing it, in spite of all the bad
publicity concerning annuities and the unethical sales practices?
What is it
that they know that you don't?
There are three critical pieces to success
with annuity seminars that most agents and advisors are missing. And, it all
starts with understanding the real purpose of a seminar!
During my coaching sessions, and
during our live training events (Boot Camps), I’ll ask advisors; “What’s the main
objective of a seminar?” I’ll get answers like:
“Educate The Prospect;” “Introduce an
Exciting New Product or Concept;” “Build Trust and Credibility;”
“Impress Prospects;” “Create Distrust with Their Current Advisor;”
to Like You;” or “Disturb Prospects.”
While there are some agents and advisors
who’ve had moderate and/or short lived success in the past using the above objectives,
the annuity marketplace has changed dramatically in one area...
Seniors are more skeptical today. However, what works today, is what
has always worked for the very best producers! And, that is about really helping
people to 'understand and solve the problems they

argue with me if you want. But, over the years we’ve helped hundreds of agents
and advisors go from a 10% to 30% appointment rate at their seminars, to an
incredible 70% to 90% appointment rate at their very next seminar. And, these

the advice of your competitors, for my first seminar I spent $16,000 and
made $22,000. The second seminar I spent $6,000 and made $1300. Then a few
weeks ago I found you. For my third
seminar I spent $2800, and so far I've made $55,000. I'll give
you credit for 90% of the success I've had with this seminar. I just followed
the advice in your system, for my seminar, the initial interview and the closing
appointment and I'm making serious money. In just one month I've made over half
of what I made in previous years. I'm certainly glad I found you. Thanks,"

"Lew, I just
completed my first seminar using the strategic questions we discussed during our
first coaching session. The results were remarkable.
At the seminar I had a
90% response on people who have agreed to the one-hour complimentary meeting. And, I just had my first appointment and uncovered in excess of $150,000
for an annuity sale. The system works and many thanks for your help."

the last two weeks I have been holding seminars. Appointment results from the
first in my series were lower than normal in the past at just 25% (I normally
will get 40% to
60%). After speaking with you and implementing some of your tips,
to 90% for the next and 75% for the 3rd seminar!
I am amazed that using the
same presentation and only asking a few simple questions could transform my
appointment request ratio so much. I can't wait to get out and try these
strategies on the appointments. Thanks for your help!"
the great advice. You helped me determine areas in my seminar presentation and
opening appointments that allowed me to grow
my commissions by as much as 50%
over what I was doing in the past.
Lew has been especially helpful in the role playing and immediately being able
to point out areas of weaknesses that I was able to immediately correct. Having
a coach doesn't cost you money… It makes you money! In addition to the
coaching, the annuity packages available for sale on this web site are
jam-packed full of information that will help propel you to the top in terms of
building clientele and increasing your commissions. These packages are some of
the best in the industry, and for the price, you can't afford not to have them."
So, what are the 3 critical issues to
success to setting appointments with ‘9 Out Of 10’ seminar attendees and
collecting $1,000,000 of annuity premiums each month?
1. Attracting the ‘Right’
Prospects to the Seminar…
Obviously, to be successful
with annuity seminars you have to get prospects to come to your event. However,
if you want to collect $1,000,000 or more of annuity premiums you must attract
the ‘RIGHT’ prospects. If you understand and buy into, “The
only purpose of a seminar is to set an appointment with the prospect,” then
you must attract the prospects you have the best chance of setting an
appointment with and selling. You can attract those people by addressing the
‘REAL’ concerns people face today, in their retirement.
Secret - All of your correspondence, ads,
articles, invitations, etc., must address the real concerns people have about
their retirement. It's NOT about products, sales ideas like
'maximizing social security income' or about investment returns! It’s about helping people to have all the income they need
during their ENTIRE retirement years, with safety and guarantees. It’s
addressing their concerns about 'outliving their money'. It’s helping people to
understand how you can help them to 'beat inflation', 'reduce income taxes',
'minimize risks', 'protect their income' from the devastation of long-term care and
'replacing lost income' when a spouse dies.
2. Setting Appointments
at the Seminar…
If you want to collect
$1,000,000 or more of annuity premiums from your next seminar, you must learn how
to set appointments with the majority of your seminar attendees, right at the
seminar. And those appointments must stick. It’s not about you being a good
speaker. I’ve worked with many agents who are not great speakers, who
consistently get a 90% to 100% appointment rate. And, it’s not about having a
fancy and dynamic PowerPoint seminar presentation. There are many agents who
are very successful using a simple presentation, with flip charts, overheads or
just an easel pad.
presentation must show you understand the problems they are facing!
Then there are four ‘Insider Secrets’ to
being successful with seminars…
“First you must speak at a sixth
grade level, so even the college professors will understand you.” (Thank
You Zig Ziglar.) You can’t try to impress people with your knowledge. And,
can’t use technical jargon or big words that some people may not
understand. If you confuse your attendees at all, they are not sure they
understand you, or they feel inferior in any way, they will not set an
appointment with you.
Your presentation must address
their real concerns about their retirement. If you get into specific
investment returns, risk verses reward, or a specific product you are just another
salesperson. And, most people are very skeptical and don’t trust any salespeople.
You must ask rhetorical questions
during your presentation, so they can see how your information relates to
their situation. People buy based on emotions and justify their
decision based on logic. Your first sale to your seminar attendees is the
need to see you. You must get them emotionally involved during the
presentation, so they want to see you. If they don’t see your
information relates to their situation, and how you may be able to help
them, they will not set an appointment with you.
Finally, you must never ask for an
appointment, or try to convince them to meet with you! The minute you
ask them for an appointment
or offer a free consultation
you are seen as a salesperson. You must give
them an opportunity to meet with you. There’s only a slight difference
between asking them for an appointment (or trying to convince them to meet
with you) and offering them an opportunity to meet with you. But, there’s a
huge difference in the ultimate results! “Is it worth 40 minutes of your
time to see if…” (Note: You must set the appointment at the seminar. Once people leave it is much more difficult to contact them to set an
3. Selling a
Solution to Their Problem… Instead of a Product!
Unfortunately, you can have 100 buying units at your seminar, set appointments
with every one of those people, and you’ll still only close one or two sales. Why?
It’s because most agents 'in their
initial meeting' aren't taking the
time to help their prospects to identify and understand the real financial
problems they face in retirement. Instead, they get a few facts about what the
prospect has, and then they jump right in to selling one of their fantastic new
products, with bonuses and great investment returns. Or, they’ll use
complicated sales presentation calculators that just confuse people and provides
them all with the same solution.

I stated earlier... It’s about you addressing their concerns about outliving their

"It has been quite busy and I am
looking forward to a slow down. This week we have our final two seminars for
the year. We have been very focused on the senior market via the seminar and
our weekly radio program. I wrote $2.7M (Annuity Premiums) for October
and was #7 for the month in production with American Equity. I think last week
I cleared the requirements for MDRT Top of Table. Thank you for all your
help and guidance."
“I must say that as a Financial Consultant
with a securities license, I admit I was a bit apprehensive in getting your
material. But I did purchase the Advanced Fact Finding Techniques Video,
which in turn convinced me to get involved with your personal coaching and the
members only site. For the amount of money I spent, for the amount of such
useful information, it is just incredible. I have logged hours, upon hours, of
reading of such priceless, quality and helpful material on just about every
aspect of the business imaginable. I have done Annuity Seminars for about a year
now with marginal results. After applying what I have learned from you in just a
few short weeks, I not only improved the quality of my
existing seminar, but the appointments I have made from the seminars have become
much stronger. Potential clients come into my office, ready for me to
help them. Gone was the skeptical attitude of, OK, what can you do for me?
Replaced by, do you think you could help me too? Plus, they brought in all their
statements, 1040 forms, old annuities, life insurance policies and long term
care policies as well. Also, after just a few of your coaching sessions, which I
highly recommend, have helped me put all of this together very quickly. Your
smooth and simple, yet thorough approach to your Advanced Questioning
Techniques, have not only helped me improve my questioning, but makes
interviews exciting as well as rewarding. Thank You.”
