There is a wrong and a right way to sell final expense insurance. Fail to understand this and your efforts will be minimal, at best. As part of a training program, not only will you learn the intricate details of these polices, but you will also learn how to present them to potential clients. Here is just a glimpse of some of the skills you can expect to develop:
Know How to Identify Clients
Final expense insurance can be an asset for many families. However, it would be naïve to assume that every person will have a need for this coverage. You can save yourself a lot of time by sifting through your leads to identify those people who would be interested in this type of coverage.
Once you have quantified the list in this way, you then need to research further to determine if the individual has a health condition that is covered based on the plan you're offering and lastly, but most importantly, that they can afford the cost of coverage. If you are not taking these steps, you could be wasting their time and yours.
Learn How to Understand Policies
One of the key benefits of a final expense insurance is that it is designed to be somewhat of a parachute when a life insurance policy is insufficient. If you want to be effective at selling this coverage, you also need to be an expert on life insurance policies.
Not only do you need to understand how to review and interpret these policies for yourself, you need to be able to rely on this information to each person you're attempting to sell to. The potential client needs to be able to see how their existing coverage won't be enough to protect their family after their departure if you want to be successful.
Establish a Balance Between Aggressive and Compassionate
It's important that you also understand how to create a balance between aggressive and compassionate. On the aggressive side, families deserve to not have to deal with the loss of their loved one and the stress of financial woes so the coverage is very important.
However, if a family is dealing with an ill loved one, taking about their departure isn't exactly easy. If you're too aggressive, you could thwart their ability to hear you out so overly pushy is not the way to go.
These represent just some of the skills you can expect to garner from training. With these skills and your knowledge of the policies, you can set the perfect stage for your success.
