How to Convince Your Clients to Buy Insurance from You

a financial advisor talking to her clientsGetting insurance is one of the biggest investments anyone can make to secure the future. For instance, health insurance is necessary because it can cover the expenses when one gets sick. Life insurance, on the other hand, can be useful in the event of a death in the family, as it can help pay for education, mortgage, and other bills.

The problem, however, is that not all people are convinced that insurance is a worthy investment. Some think that it’s an additional expense without considering its future benefits. So if you’re an insurance agent and want people to realize the importance of buying insurance, here are some good tips:

Be well-equipped.

When meeting potential clients, there’s more to it than looking presentable and knowing the right spiels for a good sales talk. It’s also about being fully equipped with the latest technology, such as having an insurance agency management system, to make things easy for you and the client. It’s a plus also to give brochures or copies of pertinent documents that the client can take home to study before making a decision.

Use plain language.

When talking to clients, avoid using industry jargon; incorporate plain language into your sales talk. This doesn’t mean, however, that you have to emphasize less on the benefits of buying insurance. You still have to highlight all the important points without overloading your client with too much information.

Keep communication lines open.

Finally, before you end the day with your client, make sure to keep your communication lines open. Your client may need to ask more questions or clarify certain points. As buying insurance involves money, don’t leave your client hanging with a concern. And don’t forget to give more than just one contact option; give your work number, email address and also your social media profile for easier communication.
