The Great Mehdi Fakharzadeh Shares His Secrets

In his book, “THE GREAT MEHDI’S” FAST-TRACK SALES SYSTEM”, Mehdi Fakharzadeh, (The world’s most successful insurance sales agent!) shares the following;

“You are different from all other financial services practitioners. You have unique abilities and individual strengths. The world’s most successful insurance agents and financial planners all use a sales system that is carefully structured especially for them. Their system is tailored to take advantage of their strengths. Such a sales system is proven to produce the best results.

Most financial advisors use a system that actually works against them. Why would you actually support a system that works against you?

Failure is certain if you use no system at all. Limited sales results are assured by using a sales system that is wrong for you. Using the wrong sales system, (a sales system that does not work well for you), makes your life and your sales far more difficult.

Only the sales system that is ‘just right’ for you will enable you to take control of your time. Only your carefully tailored sales system will enable you to become productive to your maximum potential! Read More

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.”

Most Of Today’s Life Insurance Sales Trainers Have Got It Wrong!

Let’s face it, the ‘Old Style Insurance Sales Techniques’ that have been taught for the past 50 years or more have completely lost their effectiveness. People today are too smart to fall for all those sales mind games and gimmicks. Sales occur 98% of the time because the prospect has developed some respect and trust for the insurance agent. That type of relationship is born from having real conversations with people.

Today, you must learn to ask the RIGHT questions to get your insurance prospects to tell you about their problems, what they really want, so they’ll want to meet with you and they’ll practically sell themselves!

Here’s some points to consider… Read More

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

Costly Sales Mistakes and how to avoid them!

#1 Most Costly Sales Mistake & How To Avoid It

Are You Losing Sales Because You Are Trying To Solve Your Prospects Problem Too Soon? This sales mistake is costing you big time!

One of the most blatant sales mistakes that I see agents, advisors & planners routinely make today is trying to solve a prospect’s problem before the prospect sees, fully understands and wants to solve their PROBLEM /S! The advisor hears the prospect express a need that can easily be met with their company’s products and services and he/she immediately offers to meet the need.

Yes, I know, it’s very difficult not to respond to what you may feel is a burning need.

However, offering solutions to problems before listening to a prospect’s complete situation will have an adverse effect on any sales call. They’ll tend to see you as just a salesperson, instead of an advisor.

You must listen to… ALL of the needs the prospect may have! Then and only then should you try to determine the ones he/she is really passionate about solving.

In other words, shut up and ask the who, what, where, when, how and why questions to clarify what they need. The more questions you ask, the more they’ll talk about their problems and concerns.

The more you get them to talk about their problems, the more emotionally involved they’ll get. And, they’ll turn that need into a want!

And, they’ll practically sell themselves!

Present your solutions and benefits later when they have the most emotional impact!
