Most insurance agents fail at selling insurance because they started on the wrong foot. They never achieved traction and so they failed. What I’ve found is that many agents lack traction because they don’t know what they’re selling or to whom they’re selling. They are “generalists” and they achieve mediocrity every single day. If you want to become more successful at selling insurance, figure out who your ideal prospect is (with absolute clarity) and prospect with diligence. In this episode of the Millionaire Insurance Producer podcast, host Charles Specht will teach you how to do exactly that.
