Every day I get messages like this:
Agent: “John, your marketing ideas are great… unfortunately I need strategies that are easy, cheap, and will sell policies today. What secrets have you been holding back that fit this criteria?”
Me: “Hmmm…I could try to get you a job at the GEICO call center…”
I don’t really say that. I usually try to explain that no worthwhile marketing brings overnight results but that’s good because the harder it is, the greater your competitive advantage if you can execute. (I do believe this).
But this week I thought to myself – why not give ‘em what they want?
At some point every agent needs a few quick sales to make a quota, get a bigger bonus, or keep the doors open. Why not put together a list of ideas for you to reference the next time you have to ask yourself,
“How Can I Sell As Much Insurance As Possible As Soon As Possible?”
For the most part, these are not long-term strategies. You can’t harass your friends, clients, email list, and spouse 100% of the time and be consistently successful. But when you’re in a bind, this list will provide actionable ideas to give yourself the boost you need to make your numbers and get your bonus! (You might want to bookmark this article for later)
Who knows… One idea from this page used at the right time just might make you an extra $10,000 bonus at some point in your career!
