The Ultimate Life Insurance Niche Market…

In the past year, we‘ve had hundreds of experienced agents (5 years or more in the business) ask us about our life insurance marketing and sales systems. They’ve told us that the life insurance niche market they are in has dried up, and they wanted to know which of our life insurance systems is working the best, based on today’s situation. Where are agents we work with making the most money?

I told them all of our life insurance systems are working extremely well, however before I could recommend anything, I needed them to tell me a little about them and what’s going on. ‘Tell me about your situation…’

Their stories were very similar. They all had been selling one life insurance product in a niche market. For example one was selling final expense polices in the senior market. Another was selling life insurance in the payroll deduction market. And, still another was selling mortgage insurance to new homeowners. The bottom line is that for whatever reason their life insurance market is drying up.

Almost every experienced agent I talk to is looking to move into an easier or better market. It’s human nature. The grass is always greener in someone else’s back yard. Read More

Do You Have A Life Insurance Lead System That Consistently Gets You Results?

The reason most agents struggle in the life insurance industry is they don’t have effective life Insurance marketing, lead generation and sales systems to perform the various activities of their business!

Consider, have you ever been to a McDonald’s? Here’s a multi-billion dollar international business operated, efficiently and profitably, by a bunch of teenagers who are no more intelligent or disciplined than the teenagers you know.

Have you ever wondered how these teenagers could prepare food that tastes exactly the same and provide the same level of service every time – regardless of which McDonald’s restaurant you go to, whether in California, New York, England, Australia, or Japan?

This is because they have set systems to perform the various activities in their business, which work so well that almost any teenager can operate them and the results will be the same every time.

So, if you want to have a successful life insurance business, then you’ll need to set up systems to handle the various activities of your agency or practice.

After talking to thousand of agents, the number one frustration most agents have with their business… is that they just can’t find enough life insurance prospects to become their clients.

Many of them have said…. “If I could figure out a way to get tons of qualified life insurance prospects to call me for appointments, then I would make the kind of income I want and have lots of fun doing it. I really hate cold calling and chasing after prospects for more new business.”

Guarantee You’ll Never Lose Another Easy Life Insurance Sale!

So many agents are against using client newsletters.  They see them as a huge waste of time and money.  But let me ask you…Are you losing thousands of dollars in Life Insurance commissions every month to your competition, because you’re not in constant contact with your clients, acquaintances, friends, family and your best prospects each month?

Whose fault is it anyway, when the people you know go to your competition for the same life insurance products and services you’re offering?

Quick… Do you remember the name of the company that cleaned the carpets in your home, or the glass company that replaced your broken windshield, or the plumber that fixed your pipes last time? If you don’t know, it’s probably because they’ve never bothered to keep in touch with you… stupidly assuming that you’ll call them the next time you need them. But how will you call them back, if you don’t even remember who they are?

Are you absolutely sure that your clients, acquaintances, friends, family and your best prospects remember who you are and the services you provide???

(NOT Products)

What are you going to do about it? You know their names. You have their addresses. You just need a quick and easy way to stay in touch. Read More

The Amazing Secret To Getting A Flood Of Hot, Qualified Life Insurance Prospects To Call You!

Would you like to learn one of the most remarkable concepts that you could ever use to generate a consistent flow of hot life insurance prospects and get them to call you? The concept is called Joint Venture Marketing.

Note: If you think you already know all about Joint Venture Marketing, you’ve tried it and it didn’t work for you, then please read on. The reason it didn’t work for you is because you probably went about it all wrong! Was it just a passive system, were they would refer a client to you, if their client happened to be looking for the services you offer? That isn’t really Joint Venture Marketing!

What Is Joint Venture Marketing?

Joint Venture Marketing is an extremely cost-effective and proven lead generation strategy that involves developing a relationship with another business or organization that already has a close relationship with a group of people you want as clients. The idea is to have the business or organization, with the established relationship, actively endorse you and recommend your services to all of their clients.

Let me explain… Suppose a friend recommends a movie or a restaurant to you, and you have a good relationship with that person, then aren’t you much more likely to see that movie, or go to that restaurant.

If they were to go one step further and give you a coupon they found for 20% off, then wouldn’t you be even more willing to take them up on their suggestion.

That’s the idea behind Joint Venture Marketing. You need to align yourself with other people’s client list, and have them recommend you and your services to their friends and clients.

For example, if you make your living helping seniors in retirement, then why not go to every business or organization that has seniors as their clients or members in your area… senior centers, doctors, tax preparers, attorneys, churches, etc. and see if there are compelling ways to induce them to offer your services to their clients.

The cost of the sale for you, including advertising or promotion could be as low as the cost of a postage stamp and a letter.  Knowing this, you could afford to “gift” to their clients something like a free book, a free consultation worth $150, a free information booklet, or my favorite, a free educational workshop.

Notice how I used the word “gift” and not give. There is a big difference and it’s all psychological.

The word “give” does not seem to communicate as much value as the word “gift”.

Every time you offer to do something nice for another person’s clients, you’ll want to make them feel like you are offering to give a special gift to all of their clients.  Because you are. Read More

Why Found Money Management™ Is The Leading Life Insurance Sales System In The Insurance Industry!

Would you agree that most financial advisors are indeed lucky today, if they are able to earn $30,000 to $40,000 per year (after expenses) selling cash value life insurance?

What if in 30-60 days from today you could be earning $30,000 to $40,000 per month, instead of $30,000 to $40,000 per year? What would it mean to your family… your career… your life?

Do you really want to double and triple your income in 2018? Then you must understand why most financial advisors are struggling today selling cash value life insurance (or any product). And, why so many advisors are investing in the Found Money ManagementTool Kit.

The main problem today is that most financial advisors were never taught an effective marketing (lead generation) system that would identify and attract a consistent flow of the ‘IDEAL’ life insurance leads to them. When they first entered this business, they were taught to approach everyone they knew (Project 100), to make some sales appointments and they were given a script to memorize, to ask for referrals. For a few advisors this worked and they’ve gone on to be very successful in this industry. Read More

How to Make Your Life Insurance Sales Soar In 2018

During the past four decades, many of the major insurance companies, investment houses, banks, marketing companies, agencies, agents and advisors appear to have forgotten what made the financial services industry ultra-successful throughout the past century. They’ve gotten away from serving middle-income families, and are now focused on chasing after the more affluent prospects. Just look at the new and hottest life insurance sales ideas, sales systems and products. They all revolve around finding people that already have large amounts of money, and then trying to convince those people to invest in cash value insurance, annuities, or in the stock market. The problem is that 90 percent of the financial services industry is chasing after 20 percent of the population, so there’s a lot of competition.

An advisor trying to increase their life insurance sales would be wise to put him or herself in the middle of the middle-income market. If you talk to the leading life insurance producers, they’ll tell you that becoming successful in life insurance sales is about building a “bread and butter” market. It’s about serving average people, to bring in consistent sales. They’ll tell you that’s how they built their business, and it’s why they are consistently at the very top of the industry.

Here are just a few of the reasons why you want to be working in the middle-income market: Read More

If you’ll take the time to learn the ‘Insider Secrets’ to properly and effectively market your services in your local community and make a few minor changes and apply some simple techniques… “You can be in front of more of your ‘IDEAL’ life insurance prospects in one month than most agents will see in an entire year.”

Some agents have quickly grasped our message, immediately applied the techniques we recommended. In a matter of only a month or so, they’ve been able to double and triple their commissions and/or fees to $15,000 – $30,000 or more per month. For other agents, it’s taken six months, to a year, to double and triple their monthly income. And, unfortunately there are some agents who are still struggling, because they’re afraid to make any changes. So, they continue to do what’s easiest and most comfortable for them right now.

The simple truth is that within the next two to six months, each and everyone of you can double or triple your income, if you’ll recognize that this, or any business you’re involved in, is about your ability to consistently attract your ‘Ideal’ prospects to you. Your success in business is ultimately determined by your ability and willingness to market yourself and your services to your ‘Ideal’ prospects.

How To Find Your Ideal Life Insurance Clients!

Every week we get a call from a successful financial advisor who is earning a gross income of $100,000 or more per year. They are calling us because, while they are making a good living, they are tired of traveling all over the county and state selling their annuity and life insurance products. They are tired of working 60 hours or more each week chasing their leads all over creation.

Are you in the same situation as these advisors? How many more people could you see, (or how much more free time would you have) if most, if not all your clients were in your local community?

How much of your hard-earned money are you spending on life insurance leads, preset appointments, direct mail campaigns, dinner seminars, etc. trying to get leads? How much more effective would these lead methods be, if the people you were contacting immediately recognized your name as the financial expert in their area?

How much of your precious time are you spending on the phone following up on those leads, trying to set an appointment? How many more appointments could you set with those prospects, if those people already knew about you and the valuable services you provide? Read More

Need More and/or Better Insurance Leads?

One of the main challenges, we face every day as trainers and coaches, is getting agents and advisors to understand the real reasons why they are not as successful as they want to be. Example: Most agents and advisors come to us believing that their main problem is they need more and/or better insurance leads. While that is basically true, is it only a symptom of their real problem?

Is the real problem that they don’t know what to do and say to set an appointment with the people they know and meet?

Would you agree that almost everyone you know and meet has a problem, and would significantly benefit from your products and services? Do they need your help to ‘find the money’ to save more money for retirement or to fund their children’s education? Or, do they need more life insurance to protect their family? Or, maybe they need more safety and guarantees on the money they have already saved? Etc.!

If almost everyone you know and meet needs your products and services, doesn’t that mean there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of people (leads) in your immediate area that would benefit from your help? So, do you really need more and/or better leads?

Or, do you need to learn what to do and say to get these people to want to meet with you?

Or, is the real problem that you are uncomfortable and don’t want to approach and talk to these people?

Is that because you lack confidence in your ability to help these people?

Or, is it because you only see yourself as just another insurance salesperson?
